iShoutbox + Chat4all Shout support and bugs / Re: Registering more than once
« Last post by Adonix on May 26, 2018, 01:25:13 AM »
Not having any confirmations is "user friendly", but does open the service up for abuse. For example:

- People registering without a valid e-mail address. E-mails are sent out, and get bounced because the address does not exist. And there is no way to get a password reset that way.

- People creating countless "clones" trying to troll other people. Requiring a valid e-mail address does not stop that, but does make it a bit more difficult.

I kinda figured that's what you'd say.  The old service was more lax about this, didn't have confirmations.  (You seem to have experienced a lot more abuse than they did.)

Well, that won't work for us.  We need to able to have embedded returns in a shout.

Also, I'm curious: Why use Ctrl-return rather than Shift-return or opiton-return as with other sites?

It (the dimensions) will be configurable from the adminpanel anyway, because some shoutboxes are small, while others are very wide. I have the basics of it running and working on my testing environment now, so at the next update it will be added.

You can register 2 shoutboxes with the same e-mail address (since each shoutbox is its own 'ecosystem'), but users inside a shoutbox can only use their e-mail address once. This was not always the case, but since it was abused on several shoutboxes a few years ago, I had to change it so that the e-mail address has to be valid (confirmed), and only used once.

The single line is just what it says "single line", so you cannot use any returns there. It is basically a html "input" field as opposed to the multiline "textarea".

Does single line field allow embedded returns (using say, Shift-return)?

Can I register with two user names associated with the same email address?

I'm asking a few long-term members what the max image size is for the shoutbox where we have been for the past 3 years.  So far, I've the answers I've seen 320x240 and 300x418.  Whatever it is, it's fairly small.

I don't think I have any restrictions on yahoo addresses for the shoutbox system. The restriction was added for the forum years ago due to countless spam accounts being created, originating from yahoo and hotmail addresses. I think a message like that is shown when you try to register using such address.
