What does it do?
This app will give your staff members (with the appropriate permissions) to ban members from either viewing particular forums or from posting and starting new topics in them. To set the permissions for groups that will be allowed to ban members from forums, go to your Admin Panel->Members->Forum Ban. There you can select the protected groups as well. 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. Members can be banned for a certain periof of time, or permanently. As a precaution, you can protect certain groups from getting banned from forums. When you ban a member from a certain forum, you can enter the reason as to why that member is banned from that forum. The reason will be sent to the banned member through a pm. You have the option to make the author of the ban pm to show as a guest, i.e. not recognisable. Members who have been banned from viewing a forum, will not be able to see the posts from that forum, at the Search or Activity pages.

What does it do?
This app will allow the admins to add fake members in the online list. When you add a fake member online, you can also add the number of minutes that you want that particular member to be online. A task will run every half hour to remove the expired fake sessions from the online list. This can be very useful for start up forums as well as for those forums where there is not much activity. It will make the forum look busy and it might attract new users and boost the activity.
To keep things real, fake members will appear to read random topics, which they are allowed to view permission wise. You can select a certain forum or forums, whose topics you do not want to be showed up as being read from the fake members in the online list.
You can view all fake members that have been added to the online list at the app 's log page.

Do you have important topics at your forum, and you want to be sure that your members and/or guests really read them? Then this app can come in handy as it will help you with that.
It will force your members as well as guests to read a particular topic and only then can they enter the forums and/or the other topics.
Setting a topic as must read can be done separately for members and guests. i.e. You can set one topic as must read for your members, and another one for your guests. Topics are hidden in the actifity and search pages for members/guests till they read the forced topics.
You can exclude certain groups and ip addresses from being forced to read topics. You can also enter a custom error message to be displayed to members/guests when informing them that they must read first the forced topic before they can read the rest of the topics.
All the options are set at the app 's settings page.
Each time a member/guest will read the topic that has been set as must read, the action will be logged and be available to the admins so they can keep track of things. For guests, their ip is logged. The members log can be searched for members and timeframe, whereas the guests log can be searched for ip addresses and time frame.
If you want a particular member to re-read the must read topic, all you can do is delete their forced topic entry from the logs. Or you can delete the whole log for a do over of forced readings again. The same goes for guests logs too.
Logs can be kept permanently or prunned after a certain amount of time.

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 scans the database to detect members who have rmultiple accounts at your forum, and it will list the results.
The detection method is being done in 4 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) Ip Login Method
This method is based on scanning members known ip addresses, i.e. their last used ips, during the login and if a member has logged in to different accounts from the same ip, the action will be logged and displayed. 4) 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 and a different ip address, 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. Search
All 4 multiple accounts detection methods have a quick search option where you can search the resuts based on members names. Mod CP
All 4 detection methods will be available at the Mod Cp area as well. This is group permission based. The Ip Login&Device methods can be enabled/disabled individually. You can exclude a member or members from showing up in these logs. This is if you do not want your staff members to have access to those particular logs. Automated Multiple Registrations Topics
Whenever someone registers more than once account using the same ip address, an automated topic will be posted at a forum of your choice listing all the previous accounts of that member. Ip Registrations Limit
And last, but not least, this app adds an option to limit the number of registrations from the same ip and from members last used ip addresses.

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.
