    Smile Clarification on Bans/Post Removal

    I didn't see the message but I did notice a banned person was able to log in, is that still possible once you've been banned - or do we have a glitch?

    Default *Slight Thread-jack Clarification of Infractions/post removal

    *Slight thread-jack to clarify banning/removal of spam posts

    Forum members can *(note see PS below) give infractions/ban users, send notice about spam which goes to the mods but the mods have to actually remove the post. If a mod infracts/bans, she/he will removed the post at the same time.

    PS: Correction I got that wrong, forum members can't give infractions but can report a post. The report goes to the mods, so that they can deal with the problem. But it does mean a mod can give an infraction/ban user, but can't remove the post. Only mods from that forum can do that. Hence sometimes a delay in removal.

    They can only read the banned msg or view threads as a guest, once banned as in forever or any of the other short term (as in one week etc) bans, even if still on line, they can't post, if someone who is banned posted then there would have to be a glitch.

    So one mod bans someone, and another has to remove the message? If they are banned forever, wont all their posts be removed as well? Im so slow this morning!

    Default Clarification on Bans/Post Removal

    This Thread is in response to some questions about banning of users and post removals. I am moving the posts to this thread.

    Sometimes the delay in having spam posts removed must be confusing, but it is mainly due to a forum moderator either away, or the post may be posted while she or he is getting some 'beauty' sleep In some forums, we have mods from both hemispheres, so while one sleeps the other is active.

    PS: please see other threads of this title so you know what this is about at this point. I have requested Salome's help in joining the threads up. Sorry for the split at this point.

    It is possible for a mod from another forum to give a user a permanent ban infraction, but cannot remove the offending post, that has to be done by a mod of the forum in question.

    But a mod of a forum can do both if infractions are required in his or her forum.

    Because someone is banned it doesn't mean all their posts are removed automatically, they have to be removed by a mod, and a reason given for removal. You can't just go and remove posts for no reason. But of course generally a spammer has only posted spam in various forums, and it will eventually get removed.

    Hope I haven't confused you even more

    Hi mosaic, Sorry but I don't think general forum members can give infractions/ban users. Only send notice about spam, then the mods infract and remove posts.

    I think its silly that a mod cant remove posts cross forums, One thing when it is about a heated debate, another one when it is obvious spam or some nasty stuff... I find it slightly weird that mods dont have 'cross-forum' spam fighting rights.

    Anyway, you guys are doing a fab job, many thanks! I am way too lazy for smth like that... :
