very cool plug -- some room for improvement? (4 posts)

    i really like ecSTATic, and especially some of the features like Maleagents and Sequential and the ability to quickly determine who should be 'killed'

    req: for the Maleagents (or perhaps every where a 'kill' score of 10 is listed), i think it would be very worthwhile to display why a request was killed rather than having to look at the details individually

    maybe just add another row (or append to an existing row)...

    IP: 111.111...
    UA: ie
    REF: this/pg
    KILL: [blank IP|login attempts|WTF|etc...]

    Since every hit gets a score, and for space constraints, the score breakdowns are in little boxes that pop up when you hover your mouse over the individual scores.

    If you're not getting the popup scores, there may be a javascript issue.

    the pop-ups are working

    considering your reply and after further playing around, i think what i'm missing most is a visual indicator on the visitor/feed/bot/sequential pages that an entry for a host exists on the WNKS list (and with what flag(s))

    for instance i have this host added to the list with flags NL and BOT:

    ID#: 2.3   Name: Panopta (x10 logging)   IP:   Domain: monitorengine.com   Pages: 432
    UA: Panopta v1.1
    Referrer: http://checks.panopta.com ◊

    the 'problem' is that, on any other page but the detail page, i'm not seeing any indication that it was added to the WNKS list

    since the host is still visible on all other pages, what is preventing one from re-adding it (which i've found myself doing a couple times already)?

    i'm also not sure why it's still listed at all on any pages other than the WNKS pg. since i have the NL flag set? i guess that isn't retroactive?

    Gotcha. I've been thinking about how to do that for a while. When I get some other stuff done, I'll look at it.

    Yes, it is possible to add things more than once, though the program will not duplicate tokens. The Near IPs tab will show overlapping or adjacent IP ranges that are already in the WNKS list, and the heading block on the Details page shows the other flags, but I agree, a visual on the main pages would help.

    And, no, none of the flags are retroactive.
