Configuring Banned and Suspect Sites

You can register certain IPs or hostnames as banned or suspect to block/alert you to problem players.

To learn more about how banned and suspect sites work and what other options you have, see the Dealing with Trolls tutorial.

Banned and Suspect Sites

To configure banned and suspect sites:

  1. Select Admin -> Setup
  2. Edit sites.yml.

Add IP addresses or host names to the banned or suspects list, one per line with dashes. For example:

- 123.45.678
- verizon.com

To make the list empty, enter empty brackets, like so: []

Findsite

The findsite command (help findsite) helps you to find the IP and host of a troublesome player so you can add their site to the banned or suspect lists.

Partial Matches

Only part of a site needs to match, so listing verizon.net would block 123.456.pool.verizon.net and 678.901.pool.verizon.net and so forth.

This is a ‘contains’ search, so wildcards (like *) are not supported.

Tip: Be wary of making the match too broad. You don’t want to block an entire region of the country.

Banning Proxy Sites

To enable the proxy site ban, set ban_proxies to true.
