AddOn to ban users?

    Hello,

    we came from vBulletin where moderators can ban users immediately. We don't like to give warnings because this feels like being in school. But we ban a user, if he is the wrong person for our community.

    Is there any addon to reactivate the function that moderators can ban directly? We also like the vBulletin user notices which are now longer available in XenForo. We use it write down negative behaviour for further usage and possible banning decisions.

    Kind regards & thank you in advance
    Frank

    Thank you.

    Do moderators need access to the administrative area to use this tool?

    no, you give their usergroup permission through acp..then they will have access to it from here

    Moderators can ban from the front end without add-ons. This is done using warning actions.

    Below is an example of how I did this. This example is for a temporary 1 week ban but it can easily be changed to a permanent ban.

    Set up a warning in the ACP:

    Set up a warning action in the ACP:

    Moderators can now, via the Warning link on any post or profile, apply this warning ban and the member will then be banned.

    How does the user get the information that he is banned and why?

    They will see that they are banned and the reason for this when they visit the forum:

    Note that ban reasons can only be given when banning via the ACP.

    Bans awarded through a warning action do not have the ability to add a custom message/reason.

    Not so good, this will always involve admin activity. :oops:

    Problem: I configured 30 points = 3 day banning, which should be the 22th. But the user is shown an end of banning at the 26th january. What's this?? :eek:

    Maybe they have accrued more than 30 points?

    Also make sure you have set the ban period correctly in the warning action (there's one there as well which controls the time for the action as a time period in the warning itself which is for how long the points will last for).

    Thank you!

    Is it possible to ban an administrator?
    How can it be prevented? In vBulletin we have had unchangeable users.

    if you try to ban an administrator or moderator you'll get this error:

    Thank you.

    But generally, is there a way to make (important) users (admins, mods) unchangeable?
