Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

Could you put an alphabetic listing of members who are currently under 'ban' and on what date their ban would be lifted?

When a buddy is banned, it's impossible to tell if it's a 24-hour, a week, or a permanent ban.


Thanks for considering!

Re: Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

I think that would probably lead to a lot of conflict on the forum. Why was the ban to long/short.... How banned him/her. Not fair....

The list does exist for the mods to review and if a member has a specific question then you could always PM a mod and ask.

Although, you could do it under the basic premise that this is for information only and that no discussion will be entered into about reasons/length of time, etc.

And everyone will certainly adhere to that! ha ha

People speculate now, either openly or in PMs. People are gonna gripe no matter what.

Re: Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

Either than the obvious ones how do people usually get banned here? Sometimes I open a thread, read a good post and find the member banned

And then I go "come on, what happened?", hence I've always been curious too!

What will happen is the offending content is removed when the moderator bans them.

I've seen a few before the moderator could deal with the post and there are some doozies.

Or.....

Rather than do this, is there a way to just distinguish between someone who has been put in time out and someone who is gone for good?

Maybe listing them as "Banned" and "Permanently Banned" (or something to that effect) under their names? At least we would know the "Banned" would be returning (be it in a few days or a month). No details as to why, and no attribution to a specific mod.

Merely a thought.

She and I are in this together, no matter what happens ... two against the world .....

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

I really like this idea. Shoot, we can even put the moderator name on there...No shame here.

Nah, go with "Time out" for the temporary bans.

And FrenchFry, of course naming the mod would be no problem. I mean, who's gonna cross a mod??

The "Banned" term puzzled me for a while around here. One of the forums I was on for a long time had "Suspended" and "Banned." Suspended was a timeout, from days to weeks. Banned meant it was permanent.

I belonged to a forum where we used to "Gag" people for a certain period of time, rather than temporarily banning them. Semantics, I know, but I rather liked this term

Can you imagine seeing that under someone's name if they were regular in SIM?
