Scan for multis when a new player joins

Postby maxfaraday on Thu Jan 05, 2012 2:58 am

Concise description:
    When a new acount is created, the site should automatically check if it's a multi (or suspicious).

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Easy to do
    The MHs must be so exhausted
    Someone tell me why this hasn't be suggseted before please

It actually has been, and it's sitting somewhere in Rejected. But you have to take into account that there are families on here. Why should a wife and husband be kicked off for multi's since they play from the same IP address? Same thing for siblings or friends or school networks.

I don't think they need to be busted right off the bat. But being flagged, watched, or questioned would help weed out the super obvious.

I don't know how MHs perform their checks, but I have to believe if it was as easy as "do it automatically", that's how it would work now.

There are already in place (and have been for years) routine scans which augment reports that come in both from the C&A Forum and E-tickets, and our Hunters have access to these scans. :D I don't think we've seen any unusual uptick in the scans missing anything, but I'll look into it.
