IP logging?

Postby Innes » 2004-11-17 03:03 pm

I am currently noticing unusual levels of voting on my top sites list, there are a few sites I suspect for cheating.

I would like to know if there is any IP logging system where I can see which IP addresses voted for which site and at what time.

if there is no such function may I suggest it as a feature on the next version?

two possible ways i know of:
small iframe, so unique pvs would also be unique hits in
proxy servers
the first can be stopped with the gateway page. the second can't be stopped. neither is related to ip addresses.

ok well I have the gateway page already, how can I detect the 2nd way?
I dont even understand what proxy servers are :roll:
If I could detect cheating sites then I could remove/suspend them.

you would have to analyze the ip logs and see if there were patterns... like the same ip addresses voting every single day.
