Or you can make it members only like I’ve done!.

@anon71964425 Sadly, That approach is not SEO friendly. All topics will be noindex then.

I know! that kinda saves me from the hassle of unnecessary exposure. If I want to publicize discussion, I’d create posts at my wordpress site and give engagement links over there to get users to the forum. Most industry leaders take this approach and I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.

TOR/VPN ------- YES
Proxy -------- NO


#6

Can you please specify a reason? Many many thanks in advanced.


#7

There are a lot of gold diggers on your forum LOL xD


#8

Because most of the IITs, NITs, State Govt. Colleges run behind Proxy server… …Hope you get this point


#9

Oh… no issues. There is a solution for it.

I will create a user friendly block page with option to report the issue.


#10

Don’t you think a spammer can also report a issue ??
then how you will verify ?


#11

All request will be reviewed in 3-5 days. Will spammer wait?


#12

I think yes… we cant know motive, is someone funding them to do so… I think you should block all VPN/PROxy/Tor…


#13

BTW can you do a automatic logout for user who is using those network ?


#14

The percentage of such users would be less. (Ref: Poll1). So, blocking shouldn’t be a problem.


#15

I can find a way.


#17

I am behind a college proxy :stuck_out_tongue: … I will be affected on 1st spot.
BTW no worries… Take action what ever you think appropriate :slight_smile:

Hope for best! :slight_smile:
