Why would you want to know who got a temporary ban? As far as I'm concerned, that's something private between the user and the Mods.
By this, I can know potential shitty posters, unreliable guys, etc. Of course, forum users should be responsible on their judgemements on reliability, quality of others (they should spend their own time to find out), but if the forum can have a badge, which plays a role as early signal for newcomers, who don't have enough skills to do this, it might be great.

Recently, @Theymos has raised a badge 'contest' to find the most relevant for reporters.
Hence, I think it might be relevant to have a specific signal for temporary banned account, too.

But people can be banned for all sorts of reasons and some won't deserve to be tarnished by that forever and it could follow them around and effect people's opinion of them. I don't think theymos would implement that either out of fairness, just like trust isn't shown in irrelevant sections. Permabans are a different matter though and would be helpful for numerous reasons and most importantly would save staff and users time handling reports on users that are already banned.

...
Yes, I think about it too. A simple solution to make a status.  This will be a very useful function. Forum will get rid of using banned accounts and everyone will see banned accounts.

Or such a status option Jr. Member
I would go for this one as well...
It clearly shows that the user is permabanned and you can check what was his/her rank before he/she got banned.
Maybe you can make it red to be a bit more eye-catching, but this striked text is also good enough for me

This idea has been hashed to death.

Making a "Banned" group would increase the work for the administration team.

We used to have it and moved away when we had members in five digits - now we have seven digits.  :/

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

How so? It would be automatic and come along with the permabanning.

I don't know how much coding is required for this feautre, but it would worth the effort, that's for sure...
If I know well, people report copypasters, but you cannot decide if a post has already been reported or not. It could save some time and some report for the members who report these kind of stuff.

I agree that new rank - " banned" would be a lot more usefull than just a icon . This would allow to scrape these ranks and make statisctics.

I believe that I already red somewhere response from admin to this and it was that tagging accounts after banning would mean more work for them. Possibly it can be implemented automatically then it could be realistic.

Why administrators will not enter an icon for banned users? Many of them using account for airdrop and for other purposes. If icon will be they would not have had the opportunity use banned account.
slick greedy bounty hunters! Angry
so to avoid being reported by an active account, they used banned account to register airdrop

Adding "Banned" as a Rank makes it easy for scrapers too.
Making a "Banned" group would increase the work for the administration team.
how about a simple crossed rank or username? or red/grey colored username?
that wouldn't be so hard to code, just add a few lines to check banned status and put strike/color tag
