Should banned accounts display a reason for the ban?
Posted 11/12/13
I don't think it discourages bad behavior because there's no knowing what their behavior was like when it happened.

Discuss.

If there was a "doesn't matter" option, I would choose that. People are only banned when they don't follow the forum rules, which there is a main topic about discussing them. If someone doesn't read them, it's their own fault for getting banned. Besides, if someone sees that someone got banned for reason X, that person won't do reason X, but that doesn't mean that person won't get banned for doing reason Y.

As curious as I am whenever I see BANNED ...I think it's best just keeping it between the moderators and the offenders. Like Koala said, there's a forum about rules so there's not much need to butt into another's business.

Maybe. In a way, it could help show others what not to do if the reason was stated on the person's profile on why they were banned.

I'm a very curious person, so whenever I see a banned account, I am always like "Oh, what did they do!? I want to know!! @[email protected]"
Plus, I think it's only fair to let others know why that person's account was banned. If it's all secretive, it seems.. suspicious.

I'd wanna know why they were banned because:

-I'd know not to do what they did, saves me reading rules and regulations
-I'm curious
-I'd like to see for myself whether I think they reason they are banned is fair

I dunno, when I see someone being banned with a lot of CR points...I automatically wonder. 'Cause it's obvious they're not new to the forums, so what could they have done? xD

I don't know. I'm curious but at the same time, it's not really our business.

As both moderator and member of CR and other forums and community sites I am absolutely against the public display of banning reasons.
If someone gets banned, either temporarily or permanently it is because they broke the rules, that is all you need to know.

The banned will nearly always see the reason why they were banned, and will always be able to PM any moderator about it.
If they do not agree with the reason they can always ask any mod for a second opinion.

In case someone's ban gets lifted you are always free to ask them for the reason, but keep in mind that they are completely at liberty to refuse to tell you.

The day any website or community I'm part of begins publicly shaming their members is the day I leave that community

Do note that this is my personal opinion, I do not speak this on behalf of my co-moderators as they may have their own opinions on this matter.
