Permanently Block Open Proxy

Discission about the future of Aardvark Topsites PHP.

Permanently Block Open Proxy

Postby WebMasterJorge » 2006-07-04 02:04 pm

I know I've talked about this before and opened up a topic about it, where we all added some ideas on how to put a stop to it. Go here to read up on that if you want.

Here I'm going to talk about how to permanently block Proxy voting. It was recently come to my attention that a Mod was created to Block Open Proxy Registrants to forums powered by phpBB, just like this forum. Go to...

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=248252

To read more about the Mod and download it, I also found another Top Sites List software company that offers Proxy server check as a method of Cheat Protection. Here's a link to that...

http://www.jmbsoft.com/software/arphp/

Just scroll almost all the way down, and you'll see it under the list of Cheat Protection features.

Now! Don't get me wrong, I love the Aardvark Topsites PHP software, and I'm not suggesting to go with that other company, all I'm asking is for Jeremy to study that Mod that was made for the phpbb forums and try to see if he could also get his hands on that Proxy server check that was made for that other company.

Before we use to think that the only way to stop it is to simply just start blocking IP addresses, but now we know that people have actually made Mods and software programs that actually put a complete stop to it by permanently blocking open proxy.

So does that just stop spam or does it actually block open proxys? Setbb has just added a mod to my forum that blocks over 3000 proxys from using the forum to stopped banned members re-entering.Not sure which one they used though,ill try to find out.

Can somebody at least answer and let us know what is going on here as people are still cheating like mad on Top 100 proxy voters.......i mean Top 100 Psychopathic. :P

Im starting to wonder if anyone is going to do anything about this or even cares.Since this topic started i have bought a new server,transfered my site along with over 100 tracks and 12 albums for download,I have set up a full shop/store and am now holding a competition.Can somebody explain why it has taken so long to install an already made php script? :?

You have no idea how annoying it is to spend your money on a huge server only to be beaten by free forums that have 30 members out of which 7 of em have posted in their forum. :evil:

Im not trying to be a tosser here,I simply want this stupidity to stop :!:

at this point it's up to the owner of the list to use a third-party solution like this: http://www.homelandstupidity.us/software/bad-behavior/

i can't speak for the owner of a specific topsites list of course. you'll have to ask them about it.

That would be me! BV is talking about my top sites list, Top 100 Psychopathic Sites (http://www.top100psychosites.com). And the link that you provided stops spam bots, but we are not talking about stopping spam bots. We are talking about stopping people from voting multiple times by using an Open Proxy, thus the IP address is always changing.

Go to: http://www.ozzu.com/ftopic31433.html

And please read that message board post and see what we are talking about.
