Title: Something I've noticed... (Case Closed)
Post by: Star Magician on December 05, 2012, 11:35:37 AM
113 out of 1197 members on the forum have at least one post. This means that 1084 (90.56%) accounts have either not posted a single time here, or all of their posts were deleted. Shouldn't their accounts be deleted since most of them are probably spam bots anyway or would this be too tedious of a process to be worth doing? There needs to be a way to stop them from registering too... Can you IP ban? That could curb the creation of multiple accounts as well.

We can, and indeed do IP Ban them. As for removing them, I believe you need administrator rights to do so. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong on that second part.

I see. If only the IP bans were of more help then... They seem to just keep coming back :/

We can't remove them. I can only ban but they will keep coming back and it'll take forever to clean up them up to the point that it's not worth the hassle.
