Fan in action

I was just wondering why the user below is not reporting their full IP and where are they on the site?
Nobody has got in that I can see and many have tried to spam. Just wondering what this is telling me?

"Other" typically refers to a non-page (i.e. some other ocPortal script). Most commonly, the RSS feed.

"*" isn't actually the user doing anything. The users online screen is really a view on what active sessions there are and by default ocPortal will allow sessions to operate from anything under the same network, so puts a star on the end. If you go through to probe that IP I think it will tell you what specific IPs were seen on the sessions.

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
