Shoutbox ban possible?
« on: November 30, 2008, 11:08:14 AM »
Is there any modification out there or any way to ban on specific user from the shoutbox. He has been constantly spamming it with 50+ posts of dicks and it is tedious to delete these twice a day so everyone else can use the shoutbox.

I would ban him but I know him in real life as I do some of the other forum users who are my friends and if I ban him he'll start retarded drama that I don't want to deal with like he did when I banned him for the same thing a few months ago. He takes the internet way to seriously and I don't want to deal with that again.

Any suggestions?

create additional group and call it "Warnings" then ban that group from shoutbox. not ideal but you can give it a try

i know a few shout boxes use "/prune" to clear, and "/kick" to temporary ban a person out..

think it was on vB i saw that, a few years ago.. but maybe one of the great coders here could check it out..  :D

i already know this  ;)

i was reffering to the actual of being on the shout box at the time of ban, not the admin area..  :D

I don't have this feature in that menu... Are we using different TP versions. Mine is 0.9.8

Smoky is right, just double checked, it's the feature of the ultimate shoutbox

The permission you have is the feature on the ultimate shoutbox?

Where would I get this ultimate shoutbox if that is the case and I didn't misunderstand.

Edit: I just found it on smf. I'm gonna see if it works.
