Help Tracking Down an Impersonator


I manage the discourse forum for a game. Recently, a player uncovered some exploits and revealed that they were possible to the general community, but did not say how to reproduce them. Someone then created an account impersonating our staff to try to solicit the reproduction steps.

We suspect that this impersonator is likely to be a player who is active on the forum, and want to find the IP address used by the impersonator to try to match it to an existing account. However, the impersonator very quickly deleted their account.

Does anyone know how we can get this information?

The IP address of the deleted account is likely in staff action logs (/admin/logs/staff_action_logs).



It was reported in the logs as a ‘delete user’ system action
