    Nowadays scamming is being something usual.
    And guess what, only because of well know scammers are using new accounts here.

    Like Dfalt and his thousand of accounts, mr32 and his others accounts and im only talking about Ares.
    If we plus all the servers we got like 10 scams per day.

    I want to ask if there is a way for "normal" ppl to know if x account is related to y account.
    Or do we need an Admin/Mod help?

    You need admin help, and yet again.. if people are making new accounts, why are you trading with someone who doesn't have legit vouchers, has few posts, and just recently joined.. it's usually your own fault

    We can't do that. The reason why is because 95% of the users of this forum have a dynamic IP. That basically means every time they reboot their router or computer, their IP will change.

    Or you could think of a logical way to sort this,

    Server trades/char trades for each server section which can only be accessed by people who are GRANTED permission to access thouse forums.

    Just a thought - that way the banned accts cant look into them without getting another acct granted. )

    Before you trade ask the person if they are going to try scamming you.

    Tried that. Result was people were spamming the General and KO4Life sections to get enough posts to be able to use the market. We've analyzed it and, unfortunately, short of giving everyone IP search capabilities, there's not all that much we can do...

    Edit: Btw, change your signature. It's too large.

    Doubt we can restrict an account based on that. And even so, that will cause spamming. Don't know if you know this, but there are about 10,000 12 year old kids on this forum. (At least it seems that way most days)

    Disable new account creation. And encourage people to report when they get scammed or attempted to be scammed and ban the guy. It may eliminate new members but it will dramatically reduce scamming.

    ohh look at spitt hes got another account and selling once again
    can someone like bann IP rang or something ? bann his internet provider or something ?
    i think you should have a personal hacker for people like this. straight up fuck these dudes PC up and all

    im prety sure there is not 23k people on this forum. i bet there is over easily 1k accounts made by seperate people like people who been banned/people who scamm and make new account/people who been muted/ things like this

    i know you can say well hey theres still 22k people on there own have 1 account but come on :S people have made accounts and never logged them again

    @ iloveyou that is a good idea, be like that cafe geez site and make it like you got to invite people inorder for them to join. now when someone gets banned for scaming or something then this is what you do. look at what accounts he sent invitations to and terminate the account/ look into the account(s) and see if it is the same guy or something. yeah it would take long precious many many minutes of your time but maybe there can be some kind of certain admin that does this as his main job and nothing else

    Well when your trading an account and they ask to see yourr account
    ask to see the creditbility and if u are still unsure try this method

    Id : YourUserID
    Password : PaSsWoRd

    use an arrange of upper and lower case letters for your passowrd but just tell them

    its password and this means that they cant login the website to change anyinformation

    and means ONLY you will be able to login to the website.

    This method will probaly help people from getting scammed.
