Major hacker/Spammers....A question before it happens.. ( 02:55:17 WedApr 3 2002 )

One of the forums I regularly visit has a problem at the moment with a crew of hacker/spammer type idiots......

Address for BbBoy to look at whispered....




BbBoy...I have only given you one category to look at for now.......

Just a question for if it happens on mine or anybody elses board and maybe a suggestion as well.........

Can you delete ALL posts by a certain Username / IP address / E-MAIL address.......????

When you look at this forum then you will see what I mean....Please feel free to go and look at General section as well............

I'm sure you will find this a pretty good feature if it is possible......

Hi wellmashed!

In regards to:
Can you delete ALL posts by a certain Username / IP address / E-MAIL address.......????
I am not sure it is possible-but I can totally understand why you'd want to do that...In fact I know we're taken a lot of precautions against this kind of thing, but I will let BbBoy get specific for you on that...

You'll notice on that message board system, they apparantly don't have a flood control feature, or don't have it enabled. Those posts were made seconds after each other. With our flood control feature, that's impossible. :smile: You can limit new threads and/or replies to be made by a certain amount of ime - recommended a minute for new threads. If they can only post a new thread once per minute, then that can't happen. :smile: Flood control works on guests as well as registered members, so they can't do it either. :smile:

I like both ideas there - a feature to delete all posts by a username would be good, and an option to limit number of posts per day for users would be good too. And maybe the option to limit the number of posts guests can make too per day - ALL guests though, not just the one. That'd stop people using different IP addresses too.... :smile: All on the to-do list. :smile:
