How can I see members IP adress?

    Several spamfilters require an IP adress to register people/bots as spammers.

    How can I see my members IP in the dashboard?

    This would also be useful to delete some possible silent spambots too, since databases like Project Honeypot, require an IP to search. While names and emails don´t work.

    Default theme kakumei does print the IP of poster after the post if you are an administrator.

    If they has never posted they are not members.

    What kind of logic is this?

    WHen they´ve registered, they are members.

    The IP addresses are saved when users post something and not when they registrate (for obvious reasons.)

    You can delete “silent spam-bots” doing a simple query over bb_users. A user that hasn’t posted anything has the “inactive” status.

    How do I do this query?

    And even though your statement might be supported technically, it´s not true in my case.

    Some adult members on my forum have never posted anything, but read it every day. They just want to have an account. I know this because I communicate with some of them on email.

    Sometimes they decide to post. I had a user who made his first post just recently – after one and half years of being a member.

    If you have Akismet and Bozo Users installed, spam users will automatically be marked as bozos when they register. If you’re looking a way to check IPs in Project Honey Pot’s database, try my plugin Project Honey Pot for bbPress. For any silent spam bots registered before you install the plugin, skim through your user list. Spam bot usernames, websites, and email addresses are usually pretty noticeable.

    Ben L. I already use your Honey Pot. But I also use StopForumSpam, which has its own database of spammers. And they require IP to search, and will not accept additions to their database, solely on username and email.

    So I need these users IP adress.

    And Ben, your plugin is great. But I wish you made some way for me to scan my entire userlist for spam accounts. That´s the only way I will check already registered silent users. I just have too many users to do this one by one.

    Should be like this:

    1. Scan registered users list for spam accounts?

    2. Ok

    3. Scanning complete, found five spam accounts.

    5. Would you like to see these users statistics in Project Honeypots database?

    6. Would you like to delete these accounts? Or select manually which ones to delete?

    bbPress doesn’t store IP addresses of users when they register. The Project Honey Pot plugin will block the spammers from every page on your forum, including the login page, so there’s no reason to worry.

    Yeah but I like all my registered members to be real. I take this very seriously, so I can know for sure exactly how many humans have involved themselves in my community.
