  • Banning IPs?

    If I want to ban all the IP addresses that begin with "77." what would I enter into the IP banning form?

    Would entering "77.*" (without quotes) do the trick without banning ips that might start with 077 or 771?

    My IP starts with 77.
    This means I no longer can visit your forum together with hundreds of thousands of other legit users ..

    77.x is very very very direct. and blocks huge ranges from various countries.

      Really? The guy on the other thread said all Ips that start with 77 are Amsterdam. I'll tell ya then. There is no way to stop this nonsense. I can't figure it out. they are flodding my forum. It's unbearable.

        Indeed, there's no way to stop abuse. One user's computer from amsterdam might be abused, mine is not and I am a valid user.

        Use the Q+A option and use creative home made questions. This stops most automated flood bots. And let them flood your forum, they are just users and in moderation and their posts too. Valid users their posts can be accepted and your end users won't even notice the site is being flooded.

          Yea, but it makes it hard to figure out which ones are the real members and which ones are spam. I already screwed one up.

            How do I use the Q+A option to create a homeade question.

                That is not an option when you are running on 3.6*

                  Then I recommend again to upgrade to 3.7 where the anti spam tools are improved.
