I have noticed some members have the word "banned" where the "tadpole, grouper, shark" etc is.

Have they gotten trouble for something? or have they changed something?

Any one know?

If it reads banned it will not allow that person to post until they are unbanned. Most of the time its due to SPAM sometimes they post or say in chat something that is inappropriate and the powers to be (ie Larry) deem it necessary to ban the person. Then there is the instance of when they Ban someone for SPAMMING sometimes they Ban the ip address and with non static IP that can create some issues. I hope this helps. The MOD on this board do not have the power to ban someone only an admin can.

I was just wondering, the person I saw that was banned has been on for a long time, and it just struck me as odd, than I thought I was reading it wrong.

How would one go about getting un-banned? Beg on their virtual knees? Is this banned thing kind of like a time out for kids?

It depends on the situation and how good of a mood Larry is in that day. Time out? Only if you act like a child. Just mind your manners and chances are you won't ever have to worry about it. :smiley20:

Send me $$$ and I'll get you unbanned. Can't say for how long but, I can make it happen for at least a minute. :)

I know I would. I do like the fact that this board is actively monitoring it's users and taking care of issues proactively.

he's already sending you lots of money buying stuff...


but then again, maybe his wife doesn't know about all of it.... so I'm thinking you could threaten to give her and call with his latest invoices.
That could squeeze a few more 'bills' out of him. :smilie39:

Mine is here with me now, but she doesn't know I'm lusting for a new tech dive computer, the Liquivision X1.

I have not noticed any posts that would even get anybody banned, or are they deleted by the Forum Moderators?

Usually, a user reports an inappropriate post via the red-and-white triangle icon to the left of the post. This flags it for the Mods who then take action.
