  • How to effectively ban a member?

    I have this troublemaker that comes to the forum and start to *F* all over the place.

    The problem is that the IP logged is, and it seems that this IP is the proxy server. There is like 15 members in the forum with the same IP address since they all use the same proxy.

    Is there any effective way to ban the troublemaker? I was thinking of suspending his nick and do not allow new registration for the time being.

    The best way is to ban his email address, then set both 'Require unique email addresses' and 'Verify Email address in registration' to 'Yes'. (These are in the Change Options section of the Admin CP.)

    You may also have to ban the more popular free email services such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Excite, etc.
