MOD name: Troll MOD
MOD description: The Troll MOD allows administrators to mark users as trolls. These trolls will have a big problem. They will be logged out, recieve an error, long loading times, file not found messages most of the time. Better than banning :twisted:

You might as well get it from SVN :D:

Code: Select all

This would really make me mad if I was "trolled" and getting long load times etc. yet really funny to have people posting reporting the stuff and you just saying "I'll look into that" way more entertaining than banning people!

I've also said this in the phpBB.com topic, the way i see it this MOD should not be used for entertainment, and it should not be an alternative way to ban somebody. It should be used if banning doesn't work, if the user has a dynamic IP and keeps reregistering.

But of course admins will always use it for what they want to use it for, i may be a person who is a little shy with the banstick.

Over at StarTrekGuide.com Highway of Life made a comment to me lol that my Borg Powers would not stand against the Troll MOD.

I asked him what it was and he didn't reply and now I found this topic and now I do so I cannot stop laughing now. :lol:

Yes, I understand this and I would only plan on using it if banning didn't work or an alternative to banning however people still may not get what is going on and still post issues about stuff.

What does it recognize the user by if they have a dynamic IP and change usernames?

A user just can't change their name unless they have permissions, unless you mean by re-registering.

Well, if they are going to go through the trouble of changing IP's, of course they will re-register.

There's always limitations to banning somebody, this also applies to the troll MOD. My MOD will basically work the same way as banning, by entering the user id into a table and checking it on login. It will however also set a cookie, so it will still work when the user logs out and even when his IP changes. If he clears his cookies via the link at the bottom of the board, the troll cookie will not be removed. So unless a user clears his cookies (many users do not know about this or don't think about it), he will remain a troll.

There is a reason this MOD is still in alpha stage, i have some plans for it. One of them is the so-called troll-virus. This is a setting that will infect any accounts that are registered with a troll cookie. Currently it will not do that, and i intend to keep that optional.

Ummm...

Forgive a user and untroll him, to end his pain.


I recommend changing that language entry to be gender-neutral later on, sometime. ;)

The first part is singular, the second is plural. That just doesn't look right :lol:. But i'll make it gender-neutral just for you. Thanks! :D

Contrary to this anti sexist crap that is going on, the masculine (he, him, etc.) was the accepted gender neutral form. But now, it is more proper to refer to someone as plural, which makes absolutely no sense.

Uhhh...I think "them" is both singular and plural... Hmmm....ought to look it up...later.

Anyways, tested the MOD out earlier on a friend...they got a tad angry at me. :lol:

I love this MOD.

Them refers to a group of people, therefore plural.
