Ban users by IP
Banning someone in a channel only bans that username, and does nothing to stop people from making new accounts, to then come back and continue to do the same thing.
An IP ban may make it more difficult for people to do this. There will always be ways around an IP ban, but it's more effort than simply creating a new account with a time-limited email.
IP ban should be limited to that channel, as it could obviously be abused. The streamer or their mods should also NOT be allowed to see the user's IP due to various reasons. It could be something simple like adding a new option to the user, so you'd have:
Ban by IP
please add ability to ip ban users from my channel
Please add this ability.
Definitely agree with this!
100% agree with this. Having an issue with this myself currently and getting fed up banning accounts.
