    On one other forum I am in, If someone gets banned, there is a Tag (though I think it shows to the user himself when logged in) like - banned for Spamming or banned for Multiple Accounts or Temporarily banned till Dec 2099 :D... something like that.

    Is there a way BHW can implement such at tag around where we see the posters membership level in his /her post? I think it will help to put bans that come up in perspective. What do you think?

    On some occasions you can already see why they got banned :

    So you want to change the rules to satisfy your curiosity. Don't you think a big red BANNED under their name is enough

    Okay, you have to go to members list and actually search to find this. That's okay I guess....though I was thinking in the members post itself. Lot of folks won't really go to the members list to see this.....and in some cases, it just shows "Banned".

    Suggestions, suggestions, suggestions..... isn't that what this section is for? You can't tell good and bad suggestions apart except you hear them first. This might be a bad suggestion, it might be a good one, I don't know.. let others chime in. Nothing personal.

    There's already a reason given when a member is banned for posting a fake review in the marketplace, which I believe is the only time when it's necessary to know exactly why a member was banned:

    You can already see it if you check some banned profile.
    But yes it's better if we can see it directly with a banner.

    So methinks mate...

    Actually, its a private site and knowing why a person is banned is technically none of our business.....but when you consider that it is also a social medium where a lot of us spend quite some time and sometimes forge a certain level of bonding over time, its not a bad idea in helping with "closure" as it where. Just like you heard a close person died, in real life, the next thing you want to know is "what happened". Just suggesting it to mimic real life social interactions in a way.

    Thanks for shedding light.

    Sad to see some big rep members go. But I am sure it was justified.

    No red carpet treatment

    In many cases, it's not important for regular members to know why another member was banned, especially because many members are banned for multiple reasons (including repeatedly violating several different rules), not just one specific reason.

    The only benefit this I can think of off the top of my head that this would have is to prevent banned members from claiming that they were "banned for no reason", which I see come up a lot. However, members don't get banned for "no reason"; there's always a reason, and anyone can figure that out. Other than that, it would only serve to satisfy the curiosity of the nosy.

    However, as @Heiko and @seocrab have shown, when it is important for other members to know why another member was banned, we do let the community know in a variety of ways, either by changing their user title, leaving warnings in their sales threads (in the OP or at the end of the sales thread), in shit list threads, in their posts, etc.
    Of course, this could be more consistent, so perhaps I can run it by the other mods and admins to look into creating documentation for a more consistent process on which rule violations we can let other members know about.

    I'm leaving this open for the time being just in case anyone else has any other ideas or opinions on this.

    I support OP suggestion.
    Lot of times i wonder what would have these old members sometimes jr vip's done to get banned.
    Maybe by tagging the reason, other members can see and try avoid doing those things.

    Yes . I am think exactly same. If people see the reason directly. They will not do it. Atleast incident would be lesser.

    +1 on this, or at least make us able to see the profiles because a lot of the times the user posted something I am looking for

    Okay, I've got an update on this.

    We're working on finding the best way to implement this using features from Xenforo 2.0. I'm closing this thread in the meantime but will post a status update in it eventually.
