View Full Version : [REQ] control sessionID's by admins

16 May 2006, 06:30
I want to control somehow users witch register more than one account and since the IP isn't a valid option since more different users may use the same IP, I'm thinking in using the browser's sessionID...

I would like to recive an warning email every time an user tries to register another account and he has the same sessionID with another user. I want to be able to search for duplicate session ID's like I can search now by duplicate IP's...

This could be very helpfull in findind double registrations and in eliminating this sort of "cheating"

Browsers session ids are created on alot of things including ip addresses.

Theres really no true way to prevent users from registering multiple times short of not allowing anyone at all.

I'm just trying to reduce the number! I'm a game master for an online soccer game and the browser session_id works like a charm there to find cheaters. Tha't why I think it could be a good idea to have it on my board too.
