Interesting I genuinely never knew that, how long do they keep the ignomony of the slash, is it lifted if they behave for a probationary period? Or is it like a numerical tatoo on prisoners? If so does toadying and or chocolate garner a laser treatment?:smile:

Bans can be temporary or permanent, depending on the reason for the ban.

No amount of chocolate can buy a member out of a ban.

@Yomama: well I'm sure she's diplomatic but I see no reason to doubt her assertion :smile:

@Evo: So if your banned and have a slash you can still post, probably not, or does it mean you are labouring under the assertion of the damned, until you prove your inherent worthiness before the mods?

EDIT: for future reference, not planning on getting banned :smile: j/k, it's seldom a positive - for some - experience, even if it does affirm your mistakes.

If you are banned permanently, it's unlikely you will ever be allowed back.

You cannot post while you are banned. The posts with the slashes were posts made before the ban.

Well, actually, we delete the bad stuff that gets them banned. But if they have other posts that were okay, it might start disrupting threads to delete everything they posted if others have replied to it, so we leave those up.
