Recently, a lot of threads talking about members got banned. I wonder, what a banned member can do and cannot do during the banned period. Also permanently banned?

You are confused.

Once banned, aka nuked, a member is persona non gratis and can NEVER post here again.

Sure, they can lurk, but that's it.

Short of being banned, the mods can suspend someone, usually for three to fourteen days.

When suspended you cannot post, but once the suspension is over you are fully reinstated.

As for what the banned do, some congregate at other sites and discuss the goings on here; others flush it and move on.

Used to be said true they could receive PMs but not send them, but I don't think it's true. I think banned members can neither read, send, nor reply.

Just about nothing

No posting
No editing
No pms allowed with anyone including mods
No communication whatsoever

About the only thing possible is reading posts like any non-member

I don't understand why so many banned members log in everyday. Why not just view the forum without logging in if you can't post?

Most of the banned members simply set up a new account under another name. Many of the members on this forum have several user names using several different IPs. It's just like Facebook.

My guess:

When you are logged in, the system tracks what thread pages and posts you have already seen. When you click on a thread from a list (such as "Recent Threads") it takes you to where you stopped reading and there is a post you haven't seen before. On the assumption that this works for banned/suspended members as well, it at least saves time for someone who wants to read posts they haven't yet seen, even if they cannot post themselves.

I could be wrong but, contrary to what someone said above, a member in red can do two things.

1. They can receive and read PMs.
2. They can click on a.thread, and it will have kept their place, so they see the latest post they haven't read.

I think the second one is why they sign in.

I am 100% sure that's how it USED TO work.

If the new owners changed it, they didn't announce it.

Suspended and banned mean two different things. Has anyone ever been nuked and invited back? Sometimes suspended then unsuspended being overturned, but not banned and unbanned.

I should have put a smiley face on it, maybe, but I meant I would ban him, pm him, unban him 5 minutes later, and we'd both know for sure.

100% not a threat. Was asking for a volunteer. My apologies to speedycrap if he took it that way.

I was banned thru a misunderstanding, but Mike revoked it when someone intervened.

IIRC a sockpuppet or a few were made at the same time and may have had a similar IP address to that of Billryan's. He was banned because Mike or someone thought he was a sockpuppet, but really, he isn't.....or.....maybe he is?


Coincidence?

You can post at http://diversitytomorrow.com/
Many suspended members over there post here
That's why EB and AZ was posting here so much here lately, they got suspended at DT for insulting AMS
vice versa
You get suspended here, can post on DT
Its just a forum. Nothing here to get obsessed about.

Good point about the signature and the name being slightly different, which should have been a huge red flag, but people have been known to lose weight from the time of their picture to the present time. Especially since Fogel(Mclovin') is very young. It's easier to lose weight when you are in your teens/young adult rather than middle/elderly ages.
