I just wanted to let everyone know that the underlying platform for 1Eyed Eel has just introduced IP address monitoring and banning.
This has a couple of implications. Firstly, I'll be able to identify if your using multiple profiles. Secondly, if you get suspended or banned it will be at an IP address level. Thirdly, if you make defamatory or threatening comments and someone wants to make an issue of it now, there's a good chance you'll be able to be tracked down.
I have no intention or time to go crawling through IP address trying to identify those people using multiple profiles and it's not something that particularly concerns me. HOWEVER, if I believe a profile is a fake and has simply been set-up for the purposes of harassment or other behaviour that contravenes the code of conduct, I do reserve the right to do an IP search. And do realise that if you are banned from here-on it, it is going to be far more difficult to get back in.
Secondly, if you make any comments that are defamatory in nature, and I get a request from the police or other such authority, then your IP address will be able to identified.
I'm going to add this to the Code of Conduct information, so as all people are aware because I think its important people realise that they may not be as anonymous as they were previously.
