I've used the IP address tracking and the 'freeze member' tools from Scripts4Ning for about three years now, maybe longer. Ning stopped supporting S4N a long time ago, but allowed legacy users to keep it going. It was always understood that things wouldn't be supported and that over time things would keep breaking.
I knew this was coming some day, but I figured Ning would fill the void in time with higher security settings of its own before now.
IP tracking and the ability to freeze a member are two of the things my moderators use with pesky members, violators of our advertising policy, people in a fight, and potential spammers, etc.
I'm really bummed that we lost these tools that helped my moderators. Can I make a formal request to Ning that they put these things back in?
