[REQUEST] Multi Account Preventer

Post by preowned » Fri Jun 08, 2007 5:03 am

Name: Multi account Preventer
Description: Mod to prevent users from opening multiple accounts by checking key information (i.e. email account, ip, hardware or computer codes?)

Notes / Comments: Users with multiple account has become a problem in my forum, would like a account registry system/ checker that can use advanced techniques to prevent, catch and ban multiple accounts. vBulletin has such a hack that uses more then email and ips to catch and notify admins of users with multiple accounts. Hopefully will not require the user to make any posts before they can be detected as a multiple account. Would Like this to automatically make a post in the admin section or Admin panel, with any users caught with multiple accounts, something like the following example of one user and all the accounts they have made.
Mutliple Accounts found:

newbie - created 01/12/05 - IPs 70.132.12.97 Banned 06/01/07 - Action? Unban user, Delete account
Fook_U - created 01/12/05 - IPs 70.132.12.97 Banned 06/01/07 - Action? Unban user, Delete account

joeblow - created 04/03/06 - IPs 70.132.12.97 - Action? Ban user, IP Ban?,Delete account? Email Warning?
..............................................70.132.31.201
..............................................213.12.134.10
I_want_it - created 06/03/07 - IPs 210.12.70.11 - Action? Ban user, IP Ban?,Delete account? Email warning?

Would like it to have the "Action" options so you can click on an action for each name a user has. If you select the "IP Ban" option all IP's used by that user get banned, (to help prevent a spammer, for example, from from just coming back). maybe have a time option on how long a IP is banned when banned in this mod. This should also keep track of other names the user had.

you need the php3.0 to find all the multiple accounts first. I am part of another board thats vBulletin and it does something like what I'm asking for. Would like for this mod to find them and let me decide what to do with each name the use has made. The example is what the vBulletin hack gives you.

Just a topic bumping.

To better find multiple accounts we maybe could use a cookie and/or additionally look at the browser's data. E.g. this is mine:

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20061201 Firefox/2.0.0.6 (Ubuntu-feisty)
In my opinion there should be no automatically banning. The best MOD for Olympus which is related to our request is Thoul's IP Search by now. Unfortunately this MOD doesn't have a function to detect multiple accounts.
