hey so, i just want to migrate this discussion over to this new section! Basically, i've had a few griefers on the Worst Server Ever that can easily evade their /banip simply by waiting out their IP expiry/reassignment period. Just wondering if any among us has any ideas for mitigating this issue. Obviously, we don't enjoy the security of a paid account type system like PC Minecraft - so banning usernames is USELESS. banning IP addresses is effective in many cases (most cases i've come across actually) but those with dynamic IP addresses can easily get around this (often without any knowledge as to why, which is kinda hilarious) i've thought of this as a potential solution. i think it would be workable in some instances, as long as we could approve a specific IP within that subnet, so at least we could green light someone on a static IP within that range... admittedly, i'm not 100% certain on how that works, what the protocols and limitations are for dynamic ips, subnets and such actually are. out of the 6 or 7 griefers with dynamic ips that i've had to deal with, 1 of them did share a subnet with a perfectly legitimate player, according to my console logs. so 1/6 .... 16% - not terrible odds, but also not very great... especially not for those who get blacklisted for no apparent reason. however, if that 1 person's IP was static, we'd just ban the entire subnet, and approve their ip within that range. it might be worth some further investigation, maybe there are clearer patterns for dynamic ips or some other means of recognizing it.
