As is, it's pretty useless. PM's are flying around my ears because we have a lot of couples that are using the forum from one computer.

Every time they switch user account, a PM is send to me.

I would like an option to mark an account as "ok", so I don't get any more multiple account notifies from "ok" users.

I would also really prefer to move this over to control panel, including statistics on how often a certain duo is spotted.

Could get really freaky with a multiple couple roommate situation... Lol... We had 3 couples living in one apartment for a while; so that's 6 people, could be kind of entertaining if they all belonged to one forum with a multiple id detector :x...

all in all, I had fun today with the multiple ID detector, I will probably run it for a day or so and throw it out the window or rebuild it to something useful.

The way of reporting, the repetition of the reporting, the inability to exclude "known multiples". It pretty much makes the stock version useless for our community.

It would be much better if the script wrote a note in the user profiles... who cares if they are using the same account if they do not create problems?

It would be nice that when you notice a problem you can check the profile and see is there are multiple ID's in the notes.

Dumb question, but I have a client who is trying to enable this feature in 7.5.5... and I can't find it. Where is this feature turned on and configured?

This feature works to well in my case.
I have some members that share a pc at work so I get notified of multi accounts.
It would be nice though to have a flag to ignore those cases.
