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.
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.Mutliple Accounts found:

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.
