"Need" is a little strong. It's not a bad idea to evaluate what is available every so often - and for that you need criteria. This question could very well could come to nothing.ZoaKaizer said:Sudrien, why do we need a new chat ?
I'd be interested if you come up with anything. I'm setting up to run some tests against Juggernaut, if that gives you any ideas.Shin said:my idea is to implement a form of tracking other than IP, so mods can identify the machine of the user and not be fooled by a proxy or multiple -email addresses the subject may use.
i also happen to have some experiments towards that idea in the workz.
Of course.Kerahna said:Onions
Meaning after one has logged in to the forum?wintersviolet said:agree with everything above. and still being able to change nicknames would be nice.
after the user enters the chat, so switching names would be restricted to chat only. i guess if this function is still available you couldn't track someone by their username since they're capable of changing it; there'd have to be some other means of identifying them.Sudrien said:
Seconded. It's basically just like boutique/vanity plates, though. Kinda like an added feature (that almost everyone is abusing with the current system, including yours truly) that would be a bonus but not essential.wintersviolet said:after the user enters the chat, so switching names would be restricted to chat only. i guess if this function is still available you couldn't track someone by their username since they're capable of changing it; there'd have to be some other means of identifying them.Sudrien said:
although to be frank, it's no big loss if we can't change usernames... just that it's fun for a lot of people
ZoaKaizer said:This is about what Shin said, the mod should be able to track the IP of incoming Kajiuran and users in chat, so the mods will know who they are despite whatever their name in the chat is
yes to tracking. but i think shin meant a way to track the troll NOT by IP, since that sort of information can be faked or hidden.ZoaKaizer said:^ yes , the point is Mod should be able to track the Kajiuran Troll right ?
That has been a real issue of late. I've been a victim at least 3 times already.wintersviolet said:And a tracking log so any random Kajiurans who troll and quit won't come back.
