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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


I can find a way.


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:

Thanks for the all feedback. Glad to see nobody hide IP. Huge respect for it.

It appears these two polls reveals some solution.
