The MGC Chatbox Evo is really easy to use

You can :
  1. Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*
  5. Edit your chats (or others chats) : the edition of a chat can be done by a simple double-click on it.*
  6. Use specific commands : some commands can be accessible in the chatbox depending on the will of the administrator(s) of your forum. These commands let you execute specific actions of formatting, management, etc... You will herebelow the information on the command which are accessible to you. You must notice that you are not forced to use the command prefixes (/command_name) when you use them in the channel they are attached to (except in the general channel).*
* : Depending on the settings chosen by the administrator(s) of the forum, you might not have access to all these features.

    What can be done about internet harassment if I have the individual's IP address?

    I recently helped a friend of mine who was diagnosed with cancer set up an online blog to document his battle. He is a pretty well known college athlete so it has gotten a lot of traffic.

    However, in the past week, someone has posted numerous harassing comments -- basically death threats, ranging from the simple "I can't wait until you die" to posts that contain much more profane language.

    The posts all come from one IP address, so I know the individual's approximate location as well as internet service provider.

    What is the best thing to do from here? I don't think there is any real danger, but it's harassment. Is it best to contact the police, or do they have no jurisdiction since it's the internet? Or would it be best to contact the person's internet service provider and let them know that their service is being used inappropriately?
    Also, we have already banned the IP address so the person cannot make future postings. We are just wondering how to turn the individual over to the authorities.

    You can also do what is called a whois lookup on the IP. It will tell you the ISP. Contact them and complain.

    With just an ip address a normal person can trace it back to the corresponding ISP using sites like Ip-details.com .But even then chances are there for that person to use VPN and other IP hiders for such activity.So best is contacting the police autorities.They have permission to greater extent hence they will be able to catch the hackers sooner.
