Title: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: LadyM on February 18, 2009, 07:42:39 am
In order to stop banned people from coming back to the forum with proxies we are now approving new members as they sign up. This allows us to check IP's and do some other checks before approving new members. This should also lower spam and duplicate accounts.

If you are a guest signing up for a new account then please do not use a proxy. Proxy accounts will not be approved. Proxy emails will not be approved.

I didn't know the problems were this severe... They must be bad though, if you mods are willing to take on this amount of extra work... Good luck!
Can unapproved users do nothing at all, or is there a place where they can post?

Did we suddenly have an surge in banned users sneaking back?.I know of the spambot issue but..this seems a little too drastic.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: PatMan33 on February 18, 2009, 08:54:41 am
Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

Of course in a world run by me there would also be regular suspensions for unsatisfying users.

Almost exclusively in the Spore RP section.

Well, that would explain the lack of anyone noticing. ::)

I wonder why this didn't come into effect sooner, since Malt had a short tromp of multiple short lived accounts a couple months ago.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: PatMan33 on February 18, 2009, 09:26:04 am
New member registrations are down consistently since Spore came out. It would be easier to manage now. Though they may have not even considered that if the problem was annoying enough.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: smjjames on February 18, 2009, 09:43:28 am
Yea, and around september or so, the number of users (guests and members) dropped from its usual 100+ to what we have now. I guess that was just a cleaning up of some sort and nobody apparently noticed, or cared, not that I care about it either.

Still, does this mean I can't do an April Fools joke and 'impersonate' a mod? I wouldn't actually be a moderator and the the name would be an obvious fake.

Honestly, I would never impersonate a mod and create trouble, but it's just a thought. If you guys absolutely forbid it, then okay.

@Yossitaru: Plus the fact that the mods kept jumping on his posts and deleting them.

As for spam, that hasn't been a problem. Sure one or two can occasionally appear, but it's not at a nuisance level.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: LadyM on February 18, 2009, 10:03:26 am
Membership is down and it's manageable now. The reason I made this thread is for any guests trying to register and they aren't approved, so they know why. While I know that sometimes people use proxies not to cause trouble, I have found that 99% of the time it's used to make trouble.

I thought after the second attempt (Renaissance) he had given up. But another 5 more times is just stupid; considering he picked an obvious name he's not good at bypassing the system :P

I've had a few do that on my forum and they were IP banned on the spot. Then again, bans there aren't always permanent, compared to here where they are. But, bans are placed for a reason, and if that member hasn't realized that reason and continues on making efforts to get back in they don't deserve to be on any forum IMO.The basic forum rubric isn't that hard to follow, I don't see how hard it is to follow the rules, most rules are just second nature :-\

Well, hopefully this will halt further attempts by banned members. And it was a good idea to post a warning to those who want to register. Actually this could have been done months ago.

Some people call it "check the waiting list every day, stupid". Apparently not the Admins, though.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: Krakow Sam on April 09, 2009, 06:38:12 pm
Its not oversight on the part of the mods, thank you very much.

We have an unofficial policy of not approving members using fake emails or proxies to hide their IP. Sometimes genuine new members get prevented from approval, but we've been able to instantly deny a lot which are suspected to be banned members trying to return.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval

You should have applied for membership on your own computer. You had no MAC address and looked like a proxy.

That's why I made this topic. The new members are checked daily and if they don't show their hostname address, they won't be approved. I've approved two that members have vouched for as friends.

People who aren't approved remain on the waiting list. I recheck them weekly to see if they've tried to log in or if they show an address that's verifiable.

I was posting from my home pc.  I just have some stuff to stop hacking and as part of that it hides my IP, etc.  Plus I'm running Vista, which resets a new IP whenever you have connectivity issues.  I do a lot bc my router was made pre-Vista and isn't prepared to suck so much.

Your operating system can't change your IP address, only your internet provider can. Unless you mean the IP address on your LAN.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: LadyM on April 11, 2009, 07:03:06 am
I have Vista and my IP doesn't change unless my router is turned off or reset by the service provider. Also I have a router and internet security software and none of it keeps an IP hidden. Only a proxy or bypass does that. We don't pick up router IP's we pick up real ones.

This is still something we have been forced to do so if someone is truly wanting to join, they can undo the proxies while they sign up or send an email to request membership.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: dndfreak on April 22, 2009, 08:46:18 pm
Look, my pc's had a lot of network issues and it resets a lot.  And Kapersky's an all-in-one firewall/antivirus/IP BLOCKER.  I do not have a proxy server at all, It's my firewall that cloaks me.  It's the same reason Brogame won't accept my account submission.

I have been PMing every new latest member i see at the bottom of the page, I believe PMing someone sends a message to their email. I figure if they feel more welcome to might actually post something.

Or they could have forgot that they even signed up and the email issued by my PM could remind them..

We are once again experiencing banned members coming back under other names. It seems to be a game now to beat the system. Again, if anyone is applying for an account, please don't use a proxy or you will not be approved. We are also catching spambots. If you have a friend trying to join, it's best to let a mod know so they can be aware.

thanks

This Article proves it. He does indeed, have a girl-friend/wife.

Either you searched the entire internet for some proof of Pat's girlfriend, or you had it all along. I am still debating which one is creepier.

Im just a regular guy, but yes, I do get recognized on the streets sometimes. Im not sure how much my family is really aware of how famous I am, he said. Its a strange reality and it was embarrassing to me when my girlfriend, now wife, would show the videos to her family. All the cursing and everything.

Then how do you explain the picture where they are both STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER?

And its not a shop. I can tell by some of the pixels and from having seen quite a few undoctored photos in my time.

KS, I was just making the assumption I got out of Snork's post, it is not my own opinion or thought or whatever. Merely being Captain Obvious here.

That's what I first thought.  Though, I couldn't really remember.  It was a while ago and I've barely even seen AVGN.

Apparently the Namtap is only found in South Africa so you will have to take a plane.

Say, could you approve someone named "Telomwe", if you haven't already? She's a friend of mine. I think that's how she spelled her username, but I'm not entirely sure, something to that extent, though.
Title: Re: New Member Accounts - awaiting approval
Post by: Ultimatum on November 30, 2009, 04:38:09 pm
Don't.

Remember your other friend legion? The chances are that she'll be 10 times more annoying then him.

Post by: Rysworld on November 30, 2009, 05:32:49 pm
She's actually quite calm. I chose the most normal of my friends to get on here. Plus she's played Half-Life 2, which is always a plus.

True, but she's still the most normal of my friends.

Age/Sex/Location I believe.

You already told us she was a she and I believe that is enough information. It is against forum rules to give out personal information anyway.

Sorry, I read dndfreak's post before yours.

By the way, I messed up on what her username is. It's Talomwe.

EDIT: Nope, I'm just a dumbass. It is Telomwe.
