Suggestion: Blacklist and Whitelist

Post by DevilJin on Thu Apr 19, 2012 2:24 pm

Hello to all who is reading this suggesion. Cool [Introduce LIKE A BAWS]
Anyway,let me just get straight to the point.

I'd like to suggest blacklists and whitelists. It can quite help our security needs. Shocked
Why: It's because these past days,we have players who "hack" to become ops. It is quite... frustrating. pale
They lag the server,money cheat,etc etc etc. So I thought having blacklists and whitelists can help.
Automatically,new players can't instantly register to our server. They have to post an application to
play at the server. It can help get rid of instant-register-cheat-op people. If this suggestion is possible and accepted,
it's best if applied ASAP. Hackers find our server very easy to cheat on.

That's all folks,have a good day. Sleep I love you

P.S. Sorry for the long paragraph. Laughing Not really making a novel or something.

The whole point of IceGaming was not to have a whitelist at all, at least, that's what it was at the start (when I joined in August 2010).

I understand that a whitelist and blacklist would help immensely, but many players simply wish to get onto a server and play (myself included), without having to wait for an application process.
I'm sure you've noticed, it takes a while for new players to get Member, not because they don't apply, but because only a handful of people can approve the applications and of course, they have other commitments.

That's just my view on things. If we see an increase in the number of hacked ops then I agree we may need to step up our security a tad, but not to the level that we restrict the amount of players coming onto the server in the first place.

Also, we need bb back, and express clearly to players that if they build in the wilderness, it is very likely that someone will come along and obliterate it (as the moderators and admins did last week). Hopefully that'll get the message across.

Well, as of today, someone decided to login as Ucut, Who still has Owner rank. He banned at least my IP.
Luckily, I used a proxy to get back on, using a different name, and /stop the server.
Having these hackers and everything, I think we need to set a whitelist. At least for awhile until we can resolve the Permissions and the plugins.
Hopefully I can talk to Mobile about this.

Basically,we need to step up our gig. (You get what I mean right?) Every
disaster leads to another disaster and to another disaster. That's why it's
reasonable that we have whitelists and blacklists.

Firstly, we need not announce that xauth was reset -_-.

All accounts are secure, powers will be re-instated to admins/mods when they re-register their accounts.

Im considering whitelist, but for the moment, we will have to put up with the silly interruptions.

To be honest, It is more of a concern rather than a silly interruption. If these attacks keep on persisting and admins can't do anything about it, the server could take a great deal of damage to it.

I must speak with you the next time you are on teamspeak.
