Guests and other undesirables viewing forum

Post by Mojeaux on July 16th 2010, 11:56 pm

I run a forum for a stratgey game. We suspect there may be 'spies' (its a game ffs). What we fear is someone logging in under someone else's login and viewing information. Now I know you can view IP's of users by POST and you can view IP's of people online WHILE they are online. Is there any way to log this or search users by ip's they use to view?

i dont think this is possible...

what i've done, is make the forums usergroup's only, and have people joing fill out an application to join, then put them into the usergroup, practical if your talking 10's of people rather than thousends!...

we've a usergroup per timezone for the forum i'm running.. thats the 1 i use to give the users access - as thier is also some sections which are time zone specific.

maybe you could employ that to good effect or something similar?

hope thats an alternative that may work?

Users and guests can't see a member's Ip, only administrators can on admin panel and through posts, although moderators can also if you allow them to view ip's

I already employ this - not by TZ's but by "Battle Groups". Thats not the problem. I worry about people giving outsiders their usernames and passwords to sneak a peak.

Is their any log of IP's used (rather than just for posting).
