What does it do?

When you banned a user, he can just register a new account and keep posting on your forum.
When you banned an IP, the IP could be dymanic or an proxy IP. You probably banned one or more innocent users.

this is true. but in my experience, most of the users don't know anything about cookies. this helps to stop some mad posters.

human spammers are provided dymanic IPs from their company, but they don't waste time to clear the cookies either. if they can not access your site for the first load, they will choose to skip. they are just too busy

Isn't it the same way the Multiple account login detector works?
I just don't know if it works with the actual version 3.8, but it is also cookie based.

Miserable Users seems to be a better option. This works too though.

"Multiple account login detector" tells you who get multiple account. this mod stops users you banned to access your forum thus they can not register another account of course.

They still can register a new account, just need to clean their Cookies. Usually Spam Bots or things you don't need and want are small tools that work with a long proxy list, place their content, clean Cookies & Cache, do the next run.

Just - if someone knows a little bit more about how Login & Sessions work there's no way of banning someone completely without the chance to register again with another account.

to fix this mod, have the cookie stored on the persons pc, in a different location then the rest of the cookies. as cookie cleaners only delete the normal cookie file. I know several vB mods and other server programs that place a 2nd. non "normal" detectable cookie in other locations, so they are not deleted when the pc's cookies are deleated or removed.

This type of mod works great, we used to call it the token of death, not sure if that was a reference to a vb2 mod that was published or not.

This is a good suggestion, I would like to know if this can be done before I look for other options.

For all those that have tried banning members accounts and IPs only to have them resign up or use an ip changer, this is a good 3rd option. People shouldn't really know if they are banned by a cookie, it isn't a default vb banning option. Just ensure nothing gives that away and the mod is great.
