Alert to national IP address account creation


(Jason Stevan Hill) #1

I have a problem user. He creates new accounts from different IPs. Thankfully, he’s from a relatively small country.

Is there any way that I can set up Discourse to give me an alert whenever someone from an IP address associated with a given country creates an account? At least then I could keep an eye on those new people and prevent this jackass from causing any more havoc.

If he’s that bad you should ban him at the kernel level with iptables. If he’s the only one from his country, ban the country. Sounds drastic but with how your tone carries here you’re at your wit’s end.

You can ban IP ranges via Admin, Logs, Screened IPs. Use either asterisk wildcard or traditional IP notation.
