I'm curious to know if someone has been suspended/banned

    I'm wondering if there's anyway to tell without contacting that person or asking a moderator, or if I should just be content in my ignorance :eyebrow: ...

    search their display name and see if it says banned as their user title.

    Well, I can scratch off the banned possibility. No way to tell if they're suspended?

    I would be content in my ignorance, if I were you. :)

  5. Under their display name it says banned, and the only way I've known for how long is the moderator post underneath it. "See you in 3 days, _______" Or 2 years. So it should say something.

    If by suspended you mean temporarily banned, then no matter how long the duration of the suspension it will say banned below their username, provided that said person is in fact banned. Some just last longer than others.

    This is what I've noticed anyways.

    You could always just search their post history, I think you have to post something stupid to get banned, and usually a mod comments on it.

    If it's really bad or too inflamatory, they will often delete it and in many recent incidents, it seemed like the Mods did a great job of NOT advertising the fact that someone got the boot. Only the few who saw the posts before they were deleted knew what was gone and who's user ID to check. I also think in one case there was someone who was banned that you couldn't tell from the profile.

    Wow. I didn't think people actually got banned on here. I mean I havn't been on as long as some other people on here, but I've always seen civilized people here. Maybe it's something to do with the off-topic section...

    Have many people actually been banned on here? I mean call me a bit noobish, but I really do find this alittle amazing. I used to work as a moderator for a Runescape fansite (it's an MMORPG), and we'd always get people doing something stupid, but most of the people were teenagers, so that was understandable (I guess).

    Heh. I think I need to go to bed.
     
  11. Maybe all the uncivilized folk get banned?

    I'm surprised people haven't suspended me. Everyone here hates me.

    I hear ya brotha.
     
  15. In my time here I've only seen a select few banned from the site. Beyond that, the mods probably just take the other unciviled people out back to rough'em up so the rest of us don't see.

    Not me. I like your photo threads. Besides, you can't be banned because no one likes you.

    There have been periods where many people have been banned - the really serious trolls usually get wiped from the face of TB and it's usually only those on temporary bans who appear with "banned" instead of "registered user" or whatever...?

    There was a period of time where dozens of people came over from another forum in a kind of "forum war" attempt to disrupt TB and got wiped out eventually....
     
  19. I was banned once.








    No, wait. I was tanned once.
