First I want thanks who had made external script for find profile details like merit and banned user.

But question is why should we use external script to find out such as important thing like merit history and banned user. This is hard to implement or any other reason behind it ? Especially some times if we need merit data we have to use external script. People's are reporting plagiarism but they need external script for check user banned or not.


Regarding merit data, currently showing 120 days sent and received history. It's ok for by default. But how it will be it if you add a option for input from date and to date for search merit history? So there is not need extra scrip to find full merit data. We will able to find it on our profile.


I think more important to mark banned user. Like we can see green on profile or on post if some one is online. Like below picture,

(For active member)

If offline then showing offline on profile. So why not show Banned on current status for ban user? Reality is he has got ban, that means his current status is banned. Even banned user able come online but he can read only, he can't reply or can't send PM. So online or offline for a banned user is same for us.

I am not hater banned user but we should know it, for example send merit to a banned user is equal to dry merit although his post deserve it but there is no benefits. Plagiarism reporter could easily find who has got ban already without any external script. How it will be if banned user status like below picture ?


(For banned member)

I am not suggesting any thing new because I think it's was suggested multiple time. But my question is if we are able to find details by external script so is it not possible find directly from forum?

I will not believe that someone will use continue banned account for reading post only. Obviously they will create new account. So I don't see any major issue to mark them banned on their profile.

The rank should probably just be changed to banned or something for permabanned users, like it is on many other forums, or at least marked on their profile somewhere as it already is for staff, but I think theymos is against this for some reason. He should probably state so though and clarify because this is something many people have requested in the past. It actually has a purpose as users and staff often have to waste time on handling reports for users that are already banned.

Why should it matter if a user is banned? Do we really need to process such a useless piece of information here and take up the database of bitcointalk. All that matters is who is still here now...

I think vod added it because it wasn’t so hard to implement and he has to scrape the modlog anyway so why not just sort that?

I’d like for the return of user stats pages before or even if this gets considered to be implemented but I think both take a lot of unnecessary computing power.

Edit ahh hilarious I didn’t see your post earlier, why don’t offending posts get deleted once a user is banned though? It takes an extra bit of code and an extra space on the profiles for everyone (unless there’s something built in or personal text is changed or something).

or do you think there's a purpose in people pointlessly reporting already banned users time after time and staff having to waste countless hours on handling them?

Do you mean people reporting the pliagarized post which got the user banned or some other spam post of the user which is still available to the public?

If a banned users post is still public (which it often is, except the account get nuked), and it is a spam post, should it not still get reported and deleted if necessary?
It is visible to all, and other users can still comment on their threads, so they should be moderated as active members are.

Otherwise we’re allowinf users to leave behind a legacy

Yes, we do. Please actually read my post directly above you, or do you think there's a purpose in people pointlessly reporting already banned users time after time and staff having to waste countless hours on handling them? Also, please explain how it takes up space in the database. Staff can already see who is banned so making that available to the public changes nothing other than saving both staff and reporters time.

Matter I have mentioned already on OP and hilariousetc also explained you. There are many reporter reporting spam and plagiarism. If report banned user what is the benefits ? Only waste if time of mod and reporters. I don't think it will effect much on database since thousand of spam post making daily. Can we stop them ? Is it not effecting on database ? If we can see banned status on external source that means it's publically already. Or if admin want to keep it hid then he should not allow to make such as external script. So what's is different if show on forum itself ? It will save few merit from dry and time of reporters and mod. If banned user important wealth of forum forum don't want to expose them whither they are already exposed on external script.

Since theymos hasn't implemented a reason for a ban in the ban message,i doubt he'll yield to this as well,and both matters or suggestions are really of importance and if implemented would save most people's time and at least reduce unnecessary threads.
Most times banned users posts gets bumped up to the front page,such posts could be the plagiarised one or not, and it could get merits,merits that probably could have been handed to a genuine member to rank up,wasted/burned.(another reason why it should be implemented)
I really think this suggestion would be of help in here, and to spot easily those who aren't with us here anymore.

Great suggestion with solid backing (reasons why it should be implemented) and maybe the rank changing to banned suggested by hilariousetc could easily do the trick. I would love to add, how about giving the banned account a short period of time like weeks to appeal their ban (for the not so obvious offends) directly form that account instead of them creating an alt account to appeal their bans?.

Sometimes they do get removed and sometimes they don't. Depends on the mod. I used to remove them mostly but personally I like to leave them now because more often than not they ask for evidence and in the past I haven't been able to find it again. People have even disputed their ban once the posts have been deleted claiming they never even made them in the first place (which is always a lie). Leaving the one that was reported behind isn't much of an issue anyway because plagiarisers usually don't just plagiarise the once but many times so more often than not it's a different post that is reported.

Since theymos hasn't implemented a reason for a ban in the ban message,

He has changed the message recently. It now states something along the lines of you were probably banned for copy and pasting.

As above, it's both. Deleting the one post isn't going to make much of a difference, but other mods probably do delete the post, but it will be rare that that's the only one they've copied.

As pointed out, people who are banned for plagiarism very rarely only plagiarize once. If I come across a post I suspect of plagiarism, I might spend several minutes Googling parts of the post and running it through a plagiarism checker to see if I can find the source. If it comes back clean, but I really suspect it is plagiarized, then I'm now searching to see if it has been auto-translated and plagiarized from another language, or maybe I'm checking some of the other posts made by the user to see if they are easier to find a source for. This is a huge waste of time if the user is already banned, and could be better spent reporting other spammers/plagiarizers.

I'd be happy if theymos can add a weekly data dump for banned users. Or even if it's only once, that's enough to be able to keep an external list up to date using modlog.

Exactly that's the most important reason why I like to see ban indication on their profile. Few case might be happen like this that user already banned and we are searching him to find plagiarism. Sometimes we bother to report spam post, if user already banned then its really waste of time for both mod and us. So theymos should consider this option. If banned user is wealth for forum and not possible to exposed them then why should ban them ?

Really I don't see any problem if marked them on their profile like I explain him. I don't know what is on admin mind if there is any valid reason.

This has been discussed before, but I don't remember the outcome now.
I'd be happy to see if a banned user changes rank to 'Banned' or something similar.
I remember now (hopefully well) that this was discussed in a topic about reporting, because this could really help those who report a lot to check if a post is worth to be read and check or not.

If I remember well, there was another suggestion too, that if a post has been already reported and still waiting for the judgement of mods, the 'Report to moderator' button should be hidden to prevent double work and let the reporters job more efficient.

This has been discussed before, but I don't remember the outcome now.

With even a very cursory search, I've found three threads in the last 6 months discussing this. In every thread, it is generally considered to be a good idea, but theymos has not commented, so we can only assume he doesn't want to show banned accounts publicly for whatever reason. In that case, I would propose a simple alternative - everyone with over 1000/2000/5000/pick-a-number "good" reports gets to see which accounts are banned. These are the people who are doing the majority of the reporting and catching the majority of the plagiarizers, and these are the people whose time is being wasted the most by investigating users who are already banned. Since we know that banned accounts are already marked as such for staff, then it should be fairly easy to implement.

Correct is has been discussed also but I don't know why admin not reply like this important discussion. It could be safe reporter time so that he can report some other post.

Since we know that banned accounts are already marked as such for staff, then it should be fairly easy to implement.
You are right. If an account already banned then we don't need to report like plagiarism. So we can search some others.  

I'd be happy if theymos can add a weekly data dump for banned users. Or even if it's only once, that's enough to be able to keep an external list up to date using modlog.
May be at least it will be some helpful. But I don't see any problem if mark on profile. Do you believe that someone will use banned account continue except create new account ? I don't think so.

It's probably already a field in the database. If you're running a query to get the user's information anyways, it's not much to pull that extra field of information from the database anyways.

I did make an extension (w/ Vod's approval) for BPIP: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5038684.msg46208761#msg46208761
Eventually, the plan is to add a feature where-by the "Banned" red text will be added to a user's profile.

...
 I would propose a simple alternative - everyone with over 1000/2000/5000/pick-a-number "good" reports gets to see which accounts are banned. These are the people who are doing the majority of the reporting and catching the majority of the plagiarizers, and these are the people whose time is being wasted the most by investigating users who are already banned. Since we know that banned accounts are already marked as such for staff, then it should be fairly easy to implement.
I like this idea, would be just fine for the purpose.
If we are facing more and more spam, efficiency can be a key for the reporters...
BTW, I can understand that theymos don't want to show to the public that half of users of the Altcoin discussion is banned already Tongue

You have to read a lot of theymos old posts to understand the way he thinks, at least try to understand him. There are different aspects and points of view, that really changed the way I was looking at some things, like the email confirmation upon registration etc.. (this was a discussion with Satoshi back in the day, so theymos is keeping the old legacy)

What I would love to see is the number of banned accounts per thread, only for the Altcoin section. This can be good guideline for reporters Smiley

You don't have to take responsibility for who you ban if no one knows...

BITCOINTALK STAFF SELECTIVELY ENFORCE THE RULES IN AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE A CHILL EFFECT AND PERMANENTLY REMOVE ME AND OTHERS FROM THIS FORUM AS RETALIATION FOR SPEAKING OUT ABOUT THEIR ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR, AND THAT OF THEIR PERSONAL CLIQUES.

Didn't the forum have a load of red Xs in the coin section for banned users. I think that could be a better solution, as it shows the rank of the banned user.

I'm grateful to the members who care enough about the forum to create external sites and scripts. It frees Theymos to spend time on essential internal forum maintenance. It also allows him to read threads and posts to form an opinion of members.

The Jet Cash coffee lounge in the Ivory Tower has had some good relaxing chat recently, just what you would expect.
We need some girls to brighten the conversation though.
