Sticky Multiple Account Info uses a sophisticated system to find users, who are using your forum with multiple accounts, notifies you about that fact and keeps record about all multiple account to show that on different places.
The detection engine is unique from everything seen until now at any forum software and was inspired by the ideas of the famous, but very overloaded evercookie library to feature multiple cross-browser detection. It not only uses standard HTTP cookies, but also Flash Cookies (Local Shared Objects), a png picture with encrypted content, HTTP eTags, Web Cache, window.name caching, userData storage (IE only), HTML5 Session Storage, HTML5 Local Storage, HTML5 Global Storage (IE only) and HTML5 SQLite Database Storage. So, simply deleting cookies won't help your users to protect their accounts from being detected.
It has been coded for being as lightweight as possible and never trigger false positives or repeated positives.
The add-on itself keeps records on about which accounts are used by the same person (to be axactly: the same computers) and shows this information with each users account data to the admin in your XenForo Admin Control Panet (ACP).
It also features a new tab at all user profile pages where the multiple accounts of this user are listed. There is an option to allow the admin to specify which usergroups can see this tab and also if only the user himself can see it.
Of course there is a permission to allow the admin to protect usergroups or even single user accounts from being detected as a multiple user account. All such user groups or user accounts will be totally ignored by the detection engine. Please note that only the user account will be ignored and not the user himself. If a user has 3 accounts, and only one of them is protected (ignored) the 2 other accounts will still show up as multiple accounts if used with the same computer.
The options of this add-on allow you to setup a retention time after how many days not being used a user account will be removed from the list of multiple accounts. You cen also choose to never release any account.
You can opt to disallow registration of a new account if a user already has an account at your forum, to automatically moderate all accounts of users with multiple accounts (thus deactivating them).
If a multiple account has been found, you can setup to be reported either by private conversation, a thread in a specific forum or a user abuse report.
Sticky Multiple Account Info has been written with optimal performance (even at large sites) in mind while keeping an eye on reliability as well. It is a robust and well coded add-on intended for professional XenForo forums.
