Not sure, but I do not think so. It think it adds a little icon that says they are suspended though.
Megalomaniak Kojack That's related to another fun thing when Oculus changed their forum software, ban status didn't port over.
Funny you should say that...
Yeah, we sort of had the same issue. Banned user statuses were not ported, their accounts were just not added at all, but this presents its own issues since theoretically there was nothing stopping them from making new accounts. Like with Oculus, the majority are just spam bots.
I looked through the old forum data manually and applied as many bans as I could that way. It is not perfect, but I was able to apply bans to roughly 80% of previously banned accounts.
Edit: Though to be fair, with bans previously there was theoretically nothing stopping them from making new accounts either. 😅
Banning/Moderation enforcing is difficult because it's easy to change IPs (via VPNs) or use different emails. We do have better moderation tools now though, including some more automation to help reduce some of the manual work.
