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.

I'm already in my previous post doing example:

temporary ban
permanent ban



Maybe you should do something like this

As other people have already suggested, having their ranks changed in to banned would be great, we have the right to know who is banned and who is not banned. @admin, please show us the banned members by changing their rank: Banned. that's all we are asking.

Yes, it should be really useful. Sometimes I find some copy-pasters spammers and I report and report them ´till I get exhausted. To take a look at the modlog page is kind of messy. So, yes, in fact, it should be interesting to be able to know who is already banned and who is not, so we can decide if we continue reporting them or if it is time to stop...

There used to be 5 red crosses for scammers, but I haven't seen any of those lately.
I remember that, as I was lurking here at the time.  By the time I created an account, all that scammer tag stuff was gone.  I think it'd be very useful to have a "banned" tag but I think this was discussed a while back and nothing came of it.

It would be interesting to go back and look at some older threads in sections like Bitcoin Discussion to see how many members have gotten banned.  Bet there would be a lot.

Edit:  OP, I think those symbols you came up with are silly, however.  They don't tell anyone what's going on--you have to know what the symbols mean, and there should be a big "BANNED" label right under the avatar.  The same thing drives me nuts on smartphones, where there are icons that could mean anything, and you just have to know what they stand for.  It might look pretty, but I think it's a stupid concept.

Absolutely, but it can be really useful to be able to see if our reports are being considered, though. I was thinking about if there is some way to know the banned stats in order to get a clear reference of how many users are banned per month, year, or even per day.
I`m curious.

Interesting to know this one.
I joined the forum months ago in 2017, so I did not witness the feature.
Moreover, specific signals for locked accounts should be considered and implemented too.
I think specific icon for locked account might have much help.


In a nutshell, different signals for scammers, banned, and locked accounts should be discussed more.

I would also like to see a special tag for banned or temporarily banned users, if only to make it easier to avoid redundantly reporting spam posts.

As pointed out by The Pharmacist it probably makes sense to just use something amongst the lines of a straightforward "BANNED" label though. Alternatively I think a prohibited sign could make sense as an icon, but that might be just me.

I vote to keep temporary bans private.

This would be my favourite (I've mentioned it before, this time with edited screenshot):

Adding "Banned" as a Rank makes it easy for scrapers too.

Well I like this one more than what OP's suggested badges  Cheesy

I think we really need to show banned users to other members, temporary or not. But of course, the ban sign should define whether the account is temporary banned or permanently banned. It is much better this way than seeing a lot of users complaining about their banned account and asking if they're Temp-Banned or Per-Banned. I know there's already a sign that signifies if a account were banned but the user is the only one who can be able to see it (but I think admin can also see it) and as we can see, these users still can't found out the status of their account.

Besides that, showing if a account is banned will save a lot of time to reporters. I know that it is still necessary to report a spam posts although the user is already banned but it will really save time if we just ignore banned accounts and focus more on existing spammers Smiley

I support this. It's a waste of time for both staff and users when we have to handle reports on members that are in fact already banned.

There used to be 5 red crosses for scammers, but I haven't seen any of those lately.

I forgot about this. This is exactly what I think should be shown for banned users, or just 'BANNED' is shown under their username or rank. We don't have to show temporary bans, but I think perma bans certainly should be.

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

Sometimes I find some copy-pasters spammers and I report and report them ´till I get exhausted. To take a look at the modlog page is kind of messy.

Any Idea, How many days data modlog.php contain? I am trying to find a reported user there but I did not find it in modlog.
User is also inactive for last 2 days.

I like your idea but here are some improvements:
Maybe it would be nice to remove color from user's name and make it inactive
And also remove his rank because of it doesn't have any sense anymore




And as an experiment, I added a ghost icon instead of the rank medals

Nice initiative, @LoyceV.
Nevertheless, I think this potential icon should only apply for temporary banned accounts.
For permanently banned accounts, I suggest to nuke or delete them forever (of course, only do this months after the locking day without support tickets, complaints from locked-accounts' owners).

I believe that @Theymos and other forum staffs can create a bot to do this.

Idea is good. But I think admin don't want to expose them. As you suggest for temporary ban use a icon, it can be implement. Admin can consider it. For parmanent ban that means he can't use any more his/her account. It can't be delete because there is chance for appeal. On the other hand if delete parmanetly from server, banned people can create an account using previous email. That's prohibited by forum rule. You are not allow to create other account if you ban ( unless you need appeal).

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.

Quote

Not all banned accounts are spammers, some have made useful posts in the past. Deleting those posts disrupts existing discussions, and doesn't do the forum any good.
If all posts are spam, a Mod sometimes goes through the post history and deletes hundreds of posts (example).
