Bulk Banning

(1/2) > >>

tigersfan:
Hi, quick question. In our forums, we have a bunch of folks who have registered with names like "1-cash-loan" in an obvious attempt to spam the top of the members list. There are 100s of them and we'd like to ban them all, is there a setting or a plug-in that would allow us to ban multiple accounts at once? Or do we have to do each at one time?

shubha:
Block their IP address and Host name.

Admin->Member->Ban list->New Ban

tigersfan:
Yeah, I do that, but, what I'm wondering is, is there a way to do a bunch of accounts at the same time? I don't want to have to do that 100s of times individually if there is a faster way.

shubha:
One method is left ,

Install the Forum Firewall, Bad Behaviour mod and Add the anti spam question

And from another website install the "Block script".You may block the country also without any difficulty.Now a  days spammers choice IP address.

Take a look at this

I'm going to answer with:  It depends.  If they are coming in from a few IPs or a few hostnames you can ban by that which will then ban them all.  You can also create one ban and just add one ban trigger per.

I don't recall any screen that lets you check which members to ban and then ban them all at once.
