Title: Ban Suggestions
Post by: Rainbow Dash on May 30, 2012, 06:45:04 pm
I think, for banning, you should make it to where if you IP ban an IP, it shows a 403 - Forbidden: Access is Denied message. Because if you ban an IP, they can just clear cache and cookies for the forum sites to easily bypass an IP ban.

I think you should also have a new thing for banning where you can add like, a message, report, thread, shoutbox, etc. appearing in the ban message if the admin selects something on the site to ban that user for.

IP ban you can't get by just cleaning the cookies.

So what is the process to have an IP address banned for a user who keeps coming back under another user name?

Go to Admin -> Ban List -> Add new ban
Then add their ip to get banned.
