A way to check whether account IPs match (NOT VIEW IPs)

    Although you said that is isn't viewing IP's, it still sounds like a sketchy suggestions. Plus most of the time, people use VPNs for their alts, so it wouldn't really work.

    This would be totally flawed by a situation such as public places / university dorms. Generally they all have a small amount of public IP addresses and everyone inside is behind those few address meaning that you could easily end up ID-ing someone as an alt of someone else when in reality, they are not.

    As TheDevFreak said this wouldn't really work with users sharing same places such as malls and universities. Not only that, but any account on the same IP is already forbidden from a server if one of them is banned on it

    For security reasons, this should never happen.

    There is always the AltDentifier bot for reasons like this. By letting owners see IP it jeopardizes the security of individual users.

    This is actually a good suggestion. If it doesn't show up IP it isn't sketchy. It could simply show something that says "this user also has these accounts and list off the other user IDs attached to the device/IP" it would help fight alts

    Literally the only bad thing about discord is this

    Even with my highly featured Moderation bot with global ban list. I still can't keep raiders out

    This is a standard Admin feature with TeamSpeak.  It's been available to admins for YEARS.  All it does, it tells you if an IP has been shared, then what Accounts on YOUR server have used it.

    If someone is at school with limited IP's....it doesn't matter.  It simply tells you who has shared IP's...and means nothing.  However, if you have a user that is being disruptive and you know they live nowhere near the person they are trying to hijack their identity, you as an admin will know.

    Yes, I'd like to know more about that.

    Yes me too.

    But I also want to know how to create a system where you can know who joined using whose invite (if this exists. If not, then it's a suggestion).

    This might also prevent alts.

    Apologies to Mystique for not catching the request.

    The clan I run has around 150 members.  A few years ago, we used Teamspeak and we had a member under the guise of "desktop support", use Teamviewer.   This member then learned the Teamspeak login of that member, and use his credentials  to impersonate that member...basically lurking and pretending to be AFK to listen.

    As admin of Teamspeak, I could look at the offending member activity and see his IP was used to log in as HIS account and the LURKING ACCOUNT.   Teamspeak said this IP has been used to log in as 2 accounts.

    If Discord had this same information, as admin I would be able to know Account A, B and C with 3 different user names are all the same person.  I wouldn't actually know their IP (Discord or Teamspeak would be the "escrow holder" of the IP address), I would only know which users are using the same IP..thus either the same person or Person A has compromised Person B's account.

    I had the same issue. A user was breaking rules one after the another and no one liked him which is why he was banned. But then he made another account and started trolling people as if he was someone else. Thank god I figured it out that it was him after others told me that he messaged them.

    Having alt accounts to talk with while banned or muted is illegal and there should be a way to prevent it. I know this sounds kind of impossible, but some steps can be taken. There should be an option to see users that don't have their accounts verified. Not sure if this can be done with bots, but there should be some sort of verification required when making a discord account, i.e. adding an email id or a phone number should be necessary to make an account.

    People know that they can just make an alt anytime so they aren't afraid of mutes/bans.
