Forumotion to Include IP on registration email

Post by SophieDophs on August 10th 2010, 7:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

At the moment, when users register an account, the only way to see their IP address is (a) if they have already posted on the forum or (b) in the ACP, but you may not always be online at the same time as them so this method is not very effective.

What we need is the user IP address to be logged by forumotion at the time of their registration and this info to included in the email that's already sent to site administrators.

It's not that difficult to implement!

EDIT: Can I just make this clear... what we are asking for is not for the
individual member to submit their IP during registration, but for
Forumotion to GIVE us this information.

Hell no! affraid

I, for instance, have several areas I like to use internet from. I'd be properly pissed if I could access some forums only at one place and others only at another place. That's simple a waste of time and effort

If my suggestion was taken up, it would not affect members' access to the forum.

It would just give site Admins the ability to see a member's IP address - even when they have not posted.

We can already see IP addresses when a member posts, so I don't see what the problem is with this suggestion.

Can I just make this clear... what we are asking for is not for the individual member to submit their IP during registration, but for Forumotion to GIVE us this information in the Admin Control Panel (information which they already have).

Yes, I want an IP to be given the moment a user registers.

But then again, how about also giving us the real IP addresses of people who use proxies? Razz

Anyway, voted yes Smile

If they haven't posted in the forum, currently you can only view their IP in the CP if they are on the forum at the same time as you and as we know, this is rarely the case. Most Admins don't sit in their CP 24/7 looking for IPs!

I think this is a great idea. We should be able to have the option of disabling proxy-server users somehow and leaving a message saying "proxies are not allowed in this forum."
Though, I'm pretty it's not possible Razz

I am not sure that is wise as in my case without a proxy I cannot access forumotion sites from turkey, they are blocked for some reason.

I have also seen heated debates about IP's and security and seen some peoples paranoia about their own IP's.
if you have trouble from a particular proxy then just ban that in the IP banning section and people who may be using it will have to find another.
