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

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.

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).
