Someone recently made a lot of fake accounts on my FQ game from IP address 68.44.94.153 (a NJ Comcast DSL account).

I would like to suggest that the IP blocking functionality in FQ be enhanced to prevent multiple user creation from the same IP address, not just multiple logins per day from the same IP address.

Hmm, I agree.

Should be a simple thing to add. Thanks.

If indeed you will have more than one person playing from the same IP address, then you may find it helpful to look under Options > Server Setup and uncheck the box for "One Player Per IP Per Day". My original comment about enhancing the IP blocking functionality does not in any way affect your ability to allow everyone in your class to play from the same IP address.
