Chat monitoring incognito.

Solved Chat monitoring incognito.

Post by khwindham on July 6th 2011, 10:37 pm

Is there a way to monitor the chat box and not be seen? The only way to see chat now is to login and be instantly seen as the admin.
I am trying to catch banned users who make no post so I can look at the IP or use a Proxy IP, but use chat.

Yes, I could look at the logs but that is only data for a short time. And logged in.
If there is not a way I would like to request one for consideration.

I believe there is not a way to do that, right now.

You can change your name from Admin to something else to prevent people from knowing you're the administrator. Also, there's a list of IP adresses on the Administrator Panel of who's currently online.

Ah..thank you for that tidbit as it was help in another aspect.

But when a banned member makes another account and uses a proxy IP, it is very hard to identify.

Most banned people will identify who they really are in chat to the others there. I was looking for a means to see the chat in real time to catch them, but not let on an Admin is present.

I could change my name but I would also have to reconfigure the Admin color designator as my name would still show as a admin color.

The only other way is to make a another account and use that in chat. I was looking/asking if there is another way to accomplish this.

But the online IP table is very helpful Very good

I see no reason to keep this open any longer. Thanks for the help and the suggestions.
