Alternate Ban Method

Post by tomlarose »

Would there be any possible way to create a mod that will bad by Hardware ID? Like when a user registers, their HD ID is retrived and stored in the db. Then banned if necessary.

Why would that make any difference, it could store the HW ID from each computer logged in.

When you ban by username, it will ban all the HW ID's associated with that user.

The Hardware ID would be something computer specific like a HD Serial Number or MAC address.

That does not seem to bee the question...
Find a way to get the HD ID out of php... direct hardware access...
WinNT, 2K, XP, Linux... all of them will deny it...
