    Hi,

    How to react to a spammer who change ip, for flood XenForo forums ?

    Ban IP is not efficiency because this user change ip and create multiple accounts (possibly with dynamic ip ? or vpn, proxy, etc.)

    Currently someone fun to remake itself accounts for us spammer.

    Do you have a solution against this type of person and action, a addons, other.. ?

    Kinds Regards,

    This is an old posting but much of it remains relevant:

    Is it a human doing the registering?

    XenForo does have an option to consult with "Stop Forum Spam" for new registrations:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Spam Management -> Stop Forum Spam

    That can help a lot, especially if the offender is attacking other forums as well in which case your detection will benefit from the reports of other forums.
