Well I will answer part of my own question...


I recently created a forum not masking my IP, as well as registering on the same forum as a 'regular member' just to iron out any potential issues before inviting new members.I subsequently logged on to these accounts through Tor and didn't have any issues (no verification captcha appears)


So is this basically the default on any forum created on here:

* VPNs cannot register accounts (registering initiates the Captcha)
* Once users are registered they CAN access the chosen forum through Tor or a VPN (no verification req)



Its fine if it is. But just out of general interest, is there a way to ban a particular member group from using VPNS just in case that member group causes trouble?

Do admins have any section where we can play around with 'forum accessibility' settings to see what best works for our particular forum?

Many thanks!
