re: Your Security/Protection (multi logins, IPs, contacting others, etc.)

it works pretty well (not perfect) but you know that first hand as i banned that "new account" you registered to use when when you were suspended

i'm not going to get into specifics 'cause that helps troublemakers try to skirt the system... no security is fool-proof. lets just say that if i block a range from Brazil a few honest people will get KO'd then email "i can't get online" and i can open up the IP spectrum a little.

Work vs home is more troublesome (you could hide one account at work only and one account at home only) and shows usage patterns (night vs day posting)... glen

Simple -

So they can use multple personalities. But it usually ends up being quite obvious as they reveal themselves. It's hard to be two different people

Also, they can break the RULES with one username and if they get banned it's no biggie as they'll just use the other username.

Please note - if you guys are SHARING COMPUTERS with other jemsite users you need to post ASAP as this will definately trip the "multiple login" detector and otherwise result in an automatic suspension of your account (easily rectified if legitimate)... glen

Are you posting these banned users to the "banned list" for all to see? I'd be interested to know who does it - it may even prove or disprove some of my theories.

i don't publish "banned" member list but you can search any member and see their status.

the suspended users (who need to contact me to reinstate their account) are listed in the "forum leaders" link (bottom of forum frontpage)

#1. We're tracking MULTIPLE USERNAME LOGINS (which is NOT permitted) for the last month so if you are using multiple IDs we know who you are. You have until Sunday to PM me explaining yourself (and which ID to delete) or you're gone. Notable exception to Rich/Richelle

#2. Registered User verification of IP: New members who register, do NOT have access to anything on jemsite except the new "verify" forum where they must post a new thread. After about an hour they'll be "promoted" to member and have full access. This will be used to verify people's identity and IP.

#3. Only verified members can contact you and see your info: no longer can someone register, never post and PM/email you. In fact only "verified members" (and moderators/admin) can view your PROFILE/CONTACT page. This helps stops anonymous people from emailing you or seeing your yahoo-AOL-IM id and ringing you.

#4. Use smarts in the classifieds: if a new (or old) member contacts you about items for sale first do a search for their posts. You can see their IP (soon) in the "Verify member" forum. Unfortunately alot of you guys and girls are careless about purchasing online and this will help protect you from yourselves

#5. to be continued

... glen
Awesome. Nice work as always, Glen.

Sounds good to me! The whole "verification" system sounds very sensible to me. And hopefully it will work pretty well too. As you say, this will stop all of the "new users" that only make 1 post creating havoc.

You can create havoc from one post?

Thread Banning Added to the forum

"You have been removed from this discussion"


To clampdown on people who don't know when enough debate is enough, I added a feature where any moderator can REMOVE/BAN you from any thread.

Hopefully this will not be needed often but it can protecting someone from further suspension or discipline. ...glen

An excellent idea Glen! Although, sometimes the debates/cat fights are funny to read!

Good to see there's room for respectful debates, but when it gets old and repetitive this will be nice.
