I have searched high and low for this. I can't seem to find a way to prevent my users from making more than one account at a time. I appreciate your help.:unsure:

All user accounts require a unique email address.

Can you clarify what you mean by "prevent my users from making more than one account at a time"?

If you mean the same person is registering more than once using different email addresses and/or IP addresses, then there's very little that can be done as the software sees them as different users.

1 account per IP address, to be more specific. If they use a proxy to register a new account, then they win, but most my users don't know what a proxy is.

Do you mean something like this mod I have coded for vb?

If you would like to block users from using proxies to register at your forum, have a look at my mod.

I had changed the forum folder and forgot to update the link here. Thank you for the reminder :)
Installed and did a quick test.
Hidemyass did not allow log in with the message

virtualsurfer.net has no problem. :(

Any plan to make this more useful? like send Admin an alert when someone is detected of using proxy?
