    Apparantly this "Dr Ownage" guy decided to start evading today, so far I've banned two alts in KicksHAWAII and Vincent Pursuit. I'll have moderated registration on for a bit.

    67.87.52.160 - this IP came up on a registrant, and I found it on a couple proxy lists when Googling... except, when I double-checked the lists, the IP is gone. Does that mean it's not a proxy anymore? ?_?

    I just googled it and it came up on a bunch of proxy lists. I'm going to disapprove the user.

    Unbelievable, a day later and he's still going strong trying to get past moderated registrations...with the exact same IP...

    If it's the same tomorrow I'll assume it's static enough and just block him by IP.

    Have you tried IP banning him? If he keeps trying with the same IP he might not know how to use proxies.

    Edit: way to edit your post after I posted, now I look dumb

    lol double posting in the mod forum but if I just edited my post people wouldn't see

    Keep an eye out for this spiJirachi dude. He was an absolute fuckwad on NB, got banned a bazillion times, evaded some, and he's an absolute fuckwad on the forums as well because everything he ever posts ever is horrible and he deletes his retarded posts after people reply to them so he doesn't look as dumb. Trust me on this one, I know he was going to keep trolling as long as we left him unbanned.

    He's been dumb in the chat too. I'll give him a nice infraction.

    I.. think you might be a little too late for that.
    When I said keep an eye out for him I meant keep an eye out for alts, because I'm pretty sure he's going to make a shitload of them.

    lol

    EDIT: Also, um, question - why did you disapprove registrations before attempting an IP ban :/

    They aren't disapproved, just moderated. To answer the question though: mostly because I wanted to keep track of who was coming in more easily. Good thing too, I found him at least once on a slightly different IP.

    Also he had a completely different IP a while ago, though now I'm guessing he just changed ISPs.

    Moderating registrations doesnt mean disapproving everyone.

    Hazerider is right about SpiJirachi... I have a horrible history trying to exile that kid from the internet pokemon community... and I've been unsuccessful thus far.

    Turned it off for now after IP banning Dr Ownage's old IPs and not seeing any new Dr Ownage (though I'm tracking a user or two). Let's hope it keeps him out.
