    Hey Zachary, so they're not recorded in the db, but online.php does keep them for a while, so i assume they are recorded in some state? We have found searching on user agents to be ridiculously effective in dealing with seriously problematic trolls.

    Recording user agents like IP addresses

    We take tracking trolls very seriously on my big board, and we use the AE multiple login detector to track multiple users, we've also found manually recording a troublesome users user agent (who is displayed in online.php) to help us crack down. But user agent doesn't appear to be recorded like IPs are.

    I'm just wondering if this is actually recorded in the db, or if there's some way to record this when users log in for example.

    Any help/suggestions would be super.

    Many thanks.
