Forums registrations are now closed due to AIDS. so getting yourself banned now has consequences.

If you want forum access you will need to actually request it from an admin (preferably Strata or Battou).

Well, it has come to the point where nine out of ten new users are just reincarnations of users who's sole purpose is to chase away users. We have to take away their ability to post. Simply put we have to get rid of the bad seeds before planting good ones. It's ashame it came down to this but, when banning does not work it has to go to the next level.

do you not have a way to ipban? cuz that's what sony online does. SOE ain't good for nothing but they can get rid of bad seeds if they're too bad. Sony does it with Xbox live too

Also, afterthought, My buddy Olav does it on his forum site when we had alot of problems with certain people talking crap and flaming during the game. He runs a script that logs ips and if there's a problem the site bans Ips from that list. It's very useful in completely blocking out users... i'll see if i can't get the script he uses and have it sent to ya if you think it would be a better solution

We,ve been doing similar for some time, They have been walking right around IP bans for the last six months at the very least.

Never the less, Strata might be interested in the script though. We have something similar but not sure exactly how similar, He may want to look through it at least.

um, i'm a moderator on another forum that had this problem like 7 years ago. I figured i could use my knowledge to help the moderators here, it's not me being a saint, it's me being me. Besides, i want the site to expand, this pool closed thing disheartens me a bit because we used to have new users join everyday. If i can help, i will. It's who i am

I agree, I like to see newcomers join up with potentiol and what not.

And what say if a friendly awsome oldie that has forgotten their sn makes a new one and tries to get back in? They would be very happy for this movement too, instead of being bummed to see they cant get in.
I understand what you guys had to do for the time being though so no hard feelings. You are helping keep FAC nice and friendly. nn

Hopefully this tactic can help. Fingers crossed ppls!

We log IP addresses upon registration, submissions, and commenting. That way, when we ban an account all associated IP addresses are permanently blocked.

At this time we have approx. 400 such individual addresses blocked, yet apparently it is not enough of a deterrent.

At some point we will also need to give admins the ability to create new accounts for users manually. But I'm not assigning a priority to it.

I've been informed of the internal details.

The gist of it is that users CAN still register on FAC, however their forum access now defaults to OFF instead of ON.

In other words, anyone who wants access to post in the forums must specifically request it from a forum admin.
