Adding + to your name

Post by Kurokon Shikyo on August 7th 2010, 9:12 am

Alright I've been plague by spammers on the cb, normally i just ban them when they go too far, but lately somethings been going on, there is something making them immune to being kicked or banned, on the cb, i dont feel like resorting to ip ban or anything that bad, since out of the cb their decent, but lately people found out from a hacker that adding a + on the end of your name makes you immune to cb ban, I want to know if there is anyway to fix this error or anything, im not really good with scripting or html, but I beleive its in that, but ive also noticed + isnt effected by italics, so it could have something to due with that, which is why i stated it could be coding html or scripting, i have no clue really. I just came on here to see if there was a way to fix this or something, because i tried username ban, but you have to have three letters for it so im out of options

Hi,

This has been brought up several days ago, and I also do have it occur to me too.

Sanket, I believe it is a bug, because when in the CB, and you put, say, /ban Darren1+ that should mean that I'm banned from the CB, however, because I have the "+" in my name, I cannot be banned, hence immured to all CB commands.

Your call if it's a bug to be reported.

But, why would someone put a + sign in the end of your username, When i know your username is Darren1.

Okay, so if my username is Sanket+
then if you want to ban me from the chatbox with /ban Sanket+

It won't work, thats what you are saying?

yeah someone else had a thread about this earlier too.
it's the first i ever head of this. so i am not sure what to to do or how to fix.
i would start by making a rule and telling members that user name with such things in there like that are not allowed .

but other then that this may be one for the techs.

but Darren you said you can still ban them in the admin panel.
if that's the case then there's the answer Smile

i will have to check out and test a couple things my self too.

I think this bug is sovled because i try to make a username like this in my foroum and i have an error that says "sorry,the username you given is not allow!"

but if this bug is in your foroum you can go to Username censoring and make orbidden the "+"

i hope i helped!

well the best way to solve this would be to change it to where adding + to your name is banned, since in forbidden usernames you have to have 3 letters to ban one e.e

But then you can still edit a name from the admin panel & still be immune to the banning. TT

And no this issue isn't yet resolved Sad
