    My first new thread on BHW 2.0 !

    Apologies if this has been raised already or if theres a better place to put notifications.

    Just spent half an hour reading through a few threads and noticed at least 5/6 well known banned members seem to have nothing beside there avatars that would suggest they are banned.

    So presume they can log back in again and get on with things or are there other blocks in place ?

    Anyway thought you would like to know. Apart from that it will take me a while to like the new theme but its hardly a major change. A lot of users seem to be changing there avatar pics which is a hassle for remembering people but apart from that all seems good.

    I think the admins know about but weren't trying to draw attention to it...

    Welcome @Duffers5000 what are you seeing when you mention "UnBanned" can you link to the members or the threads you mention so we can see please? If they have a line through the username that's the current ban look - will move back to the old Banned title in a bit.

    Hi Damien,

    I just scanned the first five pages of this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-reputation-system-has-been-removed.614637/

    From memory alone.

    Lietuvis002
    Swifty
    Artizhay
    Binary King
    Zso
    Nishat


    Most of those guys are harmless but one or two would capable of logging in and using theres aged accounts on a noob.

    Also a quick look through the shitlist will show perm banned guys that appear to still be alive (some still have vip status)

    Thats just a quick read. You will need someone to scrape the old banned database I think.

    Thanks for the shout Duffers but you will see all those members that are banned have a line through their name denoting them as banned.

    But it's a fair point, I'll dump an update this weekend that makes it clearer. No fear the ban list is as it was before.
