The quieter they're dispatched from the forum with the minimum of fuss the better.
My reasoning is that alot of times, MB is the only method of communication between users, as not everyone knows each others' E-Mail addresses, IM's, etc. So if someone is banned for any period of time, they will be unable to give their friends on MB a heads up regarding their absence.

And if someone feels the need to validate themself by gaining some notoriety or attention from a banning on an internet, then I say give it them in this thread. I'd rather see it all in one post than scattered amongst a hundred mindless "Why did so-and-so get banned?!?!" threads.

There should be a way to differentiate between active and inactive member as well. Possibly putting some sort of label on a user's acount after 30 days of inactivity.

That's basically exactly what I suggested at the beginning of the thread and apparently nobody agrees. Like holy hell, this is the only way I communicate with everyone on here. Just tell me why they were banned and for how long. I'm just gonna pry until I get an answer anyways, I personally don't see the issue with posting it in their signature or even in their custom user title if that's possible. "Dirty: Banned for being a jackass for 3 days." Sounds to me like the privacy thing is way overblown, like telling the rest of the forum why a member is banned would be some sort of major violation of human rights

At the end of the day, I'm gonna find out anyways but it'd be simpler to just make it known from the beginning to save the 2 millions questions of "why was so and so banned!?!?!" But if the mods would rather have all those questions, that's of course up to them. This thread will most likely serve as a venue for people to ask why and for how long someone is banned, so I'm pretty happy with that.

My attitude won't come across well through text so I'll just say that it's not a huge deal to me, it just seems it'd be way easier to let everyone know when a regular gets a ban.

Nobody agrees? I've seen several people agree with that including myself.

Keep it like this and if anything that should be an incentive not to get banned right there.

well my bad jans, its been awhile since the beginning of the thread and i couldn't remember who agreed or disagreed and i just kind of assumed that since we are still having this discussion that nobody really agreed. if we can just use this thread or another thread for member ban questions that would work pretty well too i think.

Call it the "Penalty Box" and make it a sticky.
That would be okay, but only if we had a way of getting permission from the banned member to do so. Email I guess, but I don't want to be parading my email out to just anyone for that reason.

Question, because this is a vBulletin forum and I know what the standard settings are, but I'm not sure if this forum is on the standard settings..: Can banned users still send/receive PMs?

I don't think so, I just get a screen that says "You've been banned" and I can't view any part of the site.
