    I was thinking, since we had the problem with #1stunna, he made 2 accounts and used them both at the same time due to he could open GBAtemp twice, So how about a Blocking tool that will not allow you to open GBA temp 2 times or register more than once.

    good idea, but what about people that have to live with a static IP address, like schools, colleges, internet cafes, and some internet connections that multiple users use?
    it wouldnt work. good idea though.

    but what about brothers and sisters who use that same computer, but want to register under different SNs? they would have the same IP, if they even have 1(sorry i just cant get over that [​IMG] )

    Well there are other ways to block double joiners other than blocking the IP.

    For one email addresses, name, etc.. etc.. You can uses the entire profile to your advantage. Not just the IP.

    Or you could imbed some sort of extra code for the multi Users, like for example on a IRC server they have Services set up to remember your Ident

    So being able to block people that want to just be lame is always easy. You have alot to your advantage here

    thats true, but like most of us we have multiple email addresses, or could easily create another one, as for name, and other contact info, that can be fabricated with the slip of a key

    but i do agree with you that we need to get rid of lamerz, unfortunately if someone is determined to lame, theyre going to.

    That works only with dynamic Ip's you cant change a static unless you call your ISP and ask for a new one

    Oh and the CS ban. thats easy he changed his cd key. Counter-Strike servers ban by wonid not IP

    using a proxy server for a different ip is way to easy if someone wanted to be lame (or if you wanted to play some sweet korean game that will only let you on their servers if you have a korean ip addy)

    cookies are easily manipulated

    email addies are...well the worst way to try to regulate. get a free site with email handler and you truely have unlimited addies

    There is no tru way to keep them out short of not letting any more users join and purging the ranks of the taint or charging to join (and with annoying rich brats that don't even work.)

    Users evading bans... hmmm ... at the end of the day, even with every precaution taken into consideration it is impossible to ban someone with garentee.

    If they are desperate enough to want to rejoin and persist in their ways they will get banned and banned again.

    If however they can conform to not disrupting or being affensive within the forum then their presence isn't of much concern.

    Catch 22

    Why don't kick 'em out when we find double users???
    It's easy to do, isn't it?
    I only need 1 username, why do they need 2 then???
    I don't get it, they are just egoistic i think

    I cant see the harm in having two accounts, or what the benefit is that they gain.
    What problems does it cause?
    If one user gets kicked I'm sure it wouldnt be too long before the other account is kicked or they learn to behave.
