So does this mean no one can make more than 1 account from the same IP address? Confused And What if 2-3 persons from the same house wants to make an account on IF? Will it not work?Ermm

Thank you for this. Spammers have dramatically increased and it is very frustrating to this. The new changes you have implemented will surely help with this.

I have only one concern about your last change.
'To control link spam we are implementing a ten posts per day limit for Newbies.'

Although this no longer applies to me I do not agree with it. As a Newbie they will want to join in discussion and make themselves known in the forum and this will surely restrict them. Yes, it will help to prevent link spam but will also but a limit to how quickly these Newbies can grow their reputation on IF. 

Thank you for making these changes but do listen this concern of mine and judging by other comments on the thread some other peoples.

I dont think it will be unfair to them also as normally we have noticed that Newbies involvement on the forums is a gradual one and not like on the first day itself they start posting several posts. So for many it wont be an issue. And this will impact spammers as they dont have that much of patience and want to just post hundreds of posts on the first day itself.

And moreover these limitations are just going to remain till they are a Newbie.

Cheers,
Vijay



Fair enough and i do agree to an extent that newbies are hesitant in posting when they join, gradually they'll start to post n get involved in discussions more.

Hopefully this will lessen the amount of unnecessary threads that are made n all.

Thank u for replying to me VB n sorting out this MIDs issue

MID issue is a real big problem, have seen few attack member's using MID's, few repeat same set of posts to get to their point.

Me being in CS field just wanted to say that restricting MID's as per IP address is nt enough, its very easy to change IP address specially if ur using LINUX. How about even checking for gateway address or the DNS name or any other info to restrict MIDs.


Well its great to hear that you are in CS field.

However here is the thing that restricting through IP limits and takes care of 90% of the problem. The remaining 10% who will try to register / make new posts do it through proxy servers we are working on building a database of all the available public/anonymous proxies.

Well its rare that all the members of the family decides to join I-F the same day. So if its a genuine case they wont have a problem in normal situations.
