Vanilla is interesting.

You can post in categories & filter by them, but by default everyone sees posts from every category (that they have permission for) in one big list, or they can sort by category regular forum style.

It logs IP addresses, but you can only see the latest IP address, and since it's registration only, spoofing shouldn't be a problem. Interestingly, there is an option to change your name, and I don't think old posts by you automatically switch to your new name, and your new nickname becomes your new login, which is strange. I don't think I've ever seen a site where you can change your login before. For all I know, once you change your name, someone else could snatch it up, and there's nothing I, the Administrator, could do about it without going in to the database.

I'll turn that feature off.

I may port my site forum over to this software, but I'd have to turn "invite only" off and manage who sees what with permissions, or simply install another instance of the software.

Oh, I think it does change all posts. It certainly changed the "invited by" bit.

I've always thought we should migrate CoT to Vanilla.

That's because you're a retard.  It's horrible.

Btw, the title of the thread is an oxymoron.

There is a mod that allows you track a user's IP history.

+1 to not changing CoT to Vanilla.

I thought most of us had dynamic IP's.

with one person per geographical region, it wouldn't be hard to stereotype ranges very quickly. How many Portugese IP numbers post here?

In fact, a smart enough module could guess which user is which from the IP range alone.

How many posters from East Coast or the UK or the Netherlands do we have?
