As designed  Banned members showed in 'Highest-Posting Members' while not counted in total members

XenForo does not count banned members in the 'Forum Statistics' on the main page, but they are showed in 'Highest-Posting Members' on the Members page. I think they should probably not show in the latter either? :)

It's actually intentional that we show them there - it generally follows from our idea of not making it particularly obvious when someone gets banned. If a banned member is one of the highest posting members, it's probably ok to show them there. :)

I see. Still, showing them there and not counting them as member elsewhere seems a bit contradictory to me. I guess I'll have to do a modification then.

Edit: found a simple solution, anyone with this 'issue': just change their status to 'Awaiting Approval'.
