Clearly, I have been advised of a player (who destroyed my logd server... the jerk) named brandon... who travels about and makes a fair deal of trouble.

He's from the UK, and I have his IP address logged.  I've also been told he's been banned from this site as well.  Are there any other safeguards I can take, aside from IP banning him, to keep him as far as humanly possible from my game?

And, on an outside question... am I the only one he has wreaked havok upon?

Well, he had spammed my server, trying to get me to set up an LotGD on the server space that he had stolen from someone else.

Basically, you can only IP ban him, and to go a bit further, you can ban him entirely from your server, but that would take a bit more scripting. (This is if you have something other than LotGD on your server. You can have that one IP logged, and if $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] is equal to it, bring them to a new page.)

Looks like hes making his rounds heh.

Simplest way imo:
If you have root access on the server and its a linux box just edit:

/etc/hosts.deny

Add:
ALL:195.173.16.65

I believe this particular twit also goes under the name of Bogey, as was the name of a player who popped up on my server some time ago and did pretty much the same thing as Arune had reported. 100+ petitions, 40+ VERY vulgar YOM's  and some BS excuse about his dog dying.

He strikes me as the type who got stuffed into lockers repeatedly in his youth.

I banned him via an addition to my  .htaccess file using this blurb:
Code:
order allow,deny
deny from 195.173.16.65
allow from all

Yeah..

Sounds like this guy really knows how to rub people wrong. I'm just glad there aren't a ton more people that know that this petition thing is available. I hope in the next Pre-Release we will be able to talk Kendaer into a posting restriction implementation.

Just be aware that he makes names up at random, and is now changing his IP address.  Stay vigilant!

He showed up on logd.dragoncat.net today submitting 220+ petitions in a 3 minute period.  His IP is now banned at my firewall rather than just my game, and an email went out to hotmail.com (since he was using a hotmail email account) and to hostmaster@demon.co.uk which is the ISP that owns that IP address.  Hopefully he'll be shut down in short order.  If he returns to dragoncat, he will be handled again by my calling up demon.co.uk and demanding that they terminate his account.

Probably wouldn't hurt if everyone else who has had problems with him contacted demon.net as well.  Particularly the one whose server he tried to steal...

I can tell you we had a player named Branden / Brendan on our server inviting all players to become ADMINs on his server... The first ten players that register...

We set up an permanent ID and IP ban for him...

If he appears again, we should think again about informing hotmail...

If he was only german... hehe.. what he did to other servers can easily be punished with two years jail... Don't know, how other countries handle that...

Wow.  I guess I'm just glad I'm not the only one.  Ick.

Yes, I will keep my eyes peeled... should he attemed to make his rounds BACK to my server, I will promptly post his new IP.

In regards to scripting that addon to the .htmaccess file...  I'm going to have to look into doing that, if he keeps petitioning me.

Oh my! This guy has been bugging me for a long time! I thought it was just me, now I don't feel so special. Grin

He is also using cragiboy as well as brandon on my server. Looks like it is time to put the smack down on him.
