This app scans the database to detect members who have multiple accounts at your forum, and it will lists the results.
The detection method is being done in 3 ways.
1) Registration Method:
This method is based on scanning the members table for members who have registered more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member.
2) Posting Method.
This method is based on scanning the posts table for members who have posted from more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member as well as the posts and topics that they have posted.
3) Device Detection Method.
This is the most accurate method imo. Ipb adds a unique cookie to members devices when they log in to the forum. The cookie exparation date is set to one year and its unique string is associated with the users device and stored in the device table. This means if someone logs in to your forum, logs out and then logs in using another account, then it can tell that it was the same person. It means that person has to use same machine, same browser irrespective of the ip address he/she is using.
And last, but not least, this app adds an option to limit the number of registrations from the same ip.

This plugin will hide completely the contents of the ignored members. i.e. when a member ignores another member and selects the Posts options, the content of the posts and topics of the ignored member(s) will be hidden completely from the forum for that member. The same goes in the Activity Feed page, Search Results and ignored members profiles. Also, the name of the ignored member will not show as the last poster either in the topic listing or forum listing.
There are no settings for this plugin btw. After you install it, the hidden content of the ignored members will be done automatically.

This application will help the admins to run their forum in a calm and peaceful manner. Whenever you have a troublesome member at your forum, you can add his/her id on a global ignore list. If you enter more than one member id, you must separate them with commas. All posts and topics of the globally ignored members will be hidden completely from everyone, but the globally ignored members themselves so they do not have any idea of what is going on. Admins can select a certain group or groups that can view the hidden content.
Imo this is a great way to deal with your troublesome members. You let them talk to themselves rather than banning them outright.
The application also adds a new setting in the Moderator Panel where all ignored members are being showed. i.e. who is ignoring whom and what things are they ignoring.

This app will give your staff members (with the appropriate permissions) to block members from particular forums for either a certain periof of time of permanently. Banned members then will receive an inline notification informing them of the fact that they have been banned. Notification author is the member that does the banning. You can also have the option to that the author will show as guest, i.e. not recognisable.
As a precaution, you can protect groups from getting banned from forums.
There is also an optional feature, that you can send the reason to the member through a pm when you ban him/her. Banned members will not be able to see the posts from the forums that they have been from, at the Search or Activity pages.
Banning is done in the front end. To ban a member from a forum, go to the forum in question and you will see a new drop down menu added, called: Ban From Forum. There you can also view and manage banned members for that forum.
To set the permissions for groups that will be allwed to ban members from forums, go to your Admin Panel->Members->Forum Ban. There you can select the protected groups as well.

This plugin will allow the admins to limit the number of registrations from the same ip at their forums. Certain ip address(es) can be excluded from the limit.
Initially this was included in my [M.A.D] Multiple Accounts Detector app, but I decided to release this as a stand alone plugin as well.
