    We would ask user's username & password, and would suggest to password protect access (.htaccess) to forum directory for this IP. Not wide used, but easy enough.

    Thanks Steve,

    It was just a thought.

    Things seem to have settled down, but I'll consider administering varying levels of pain (Tachy or Miserable Users) if there's another flare up.

    There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. You can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

    started a topic ban IP but allow a single user?

    ban IP but allow a single user?

    We just had an onslaught of registrations that all originated from the same IP address range (a state university). We've had a user who's been with us for some time who also uses that range of IP addresses. Either he's gone whack or some frat buddies are causing mischief.

    So this is the question: can we ban those IP addresses but still allow one particular user?

    In the meantime we deleted the annoying user names and things have been quiet, but I don't know if they (he?) will act up again. I'm also looking into installing the Miserable Users Hack.

    Thanks
