Banned Users question.


Well-known member
I have my user group permissions for banned users to be able to view only. In essence everything is set to No but View, which is set to Allow.

But even on my test account I get a message saying:

You have been banned. Your ban will be lifted on May 24, 2012.
What am I missing?

By default there is no banned group. But you can specify a banned group if you want to apply a different title or username markup to banned users.

I have that. They get sent to the Banned User group. But nothing I change there matters. No big deal. Not wasting too much time worrying about someone who couldn't follow the rules.
