    subscriber bans

    I would like everyone to know that the subscriber bans indeed work. That is all.

    hi5!

    Pretty soon you guys can choose who can participate in the threads you create. And I say that is pretty sweet.

    Trolls are a thing of the past.

    My only issue is that doesnt it turn everyone into an option to use the banhammer?

    If someone disagrees with you, you can just remove them....isnt that like following the 'other forum'?

    No. Only subscribing members and only in threads that they create at the time of creation.

    No.

    Because not everyone has the power and it isn't available in every thread. It will also force users to respect thread creators and not crap all over their threads.

    It also gives users more power of their own. They do not need to rely on anyone else.

    Oh, and also, users who are removed from the thread are displayed publicly. No secret silencing like the "other forum" does.

    so what about the case where velos and active went at it? Velos could ban active from the thread? Or like you mean when you create the thread you can choose who can and cannot post in it?

    Velos could ban active from the thread at the time of thread creation only.

    Let's say we have a Shiv and Terry situation. Well, Shiv could ban Terry and Terry could ban Shiv from their product release threads so they don't get dumped on by competitors.

    But if you create a thread about their products both can participate. Get it?

    Exactly. It's of use if people troll your threads or if you are a vendor. That, or if you have a high profile build thread and don't want fanboys who have a competing product dumping on it for example.

    I will also likely expand it so that if you get a certain number of neg reps depending on your rep power you are removed from the thread automatically. Talk about self-moderation...

    hm thats true. I could see how it would help, but I always like to see positive debates, separating the nonsense troll bull$#@! vs someone having a good factual debate, the other person gets butthurt and removes them from the thread.

    Like I said, you can only specify this during thread creation not once the thread is already underway.

    gotcha. SO you have to be mindful of who you select when you start. But it also makes the end user decide to either believe a one sided story that is portrayed, or take knowledge from everywhere and draw their own conclusions, and will minimize the drama associated.

    Well I only use Sticky2 and Sticky3 for testing, not posting. Since those accounts are not admins, yes, you can ban them.

    You can't ban me since I'm the admin. You can't delete my posts either.

    I wasn't literally saying I was him. I was joking. He's actually already frozen in that pic.

    Nope, again dead. With a fake nose this time, so even worse.
    Exclude on thread start would only be handy indeed if someone is actively trolling all the threads you make.
    This feature might even get SLS AMG back here on the forum... The horror...

    Or if you are a vendor. Or if you know someone will only say something negative. Regardless, it's a nice feature.

    It is sort of an aggressive setting though.
    Mow you are totally banned from the thread.
    So you can not read at all what's in it.
    It would be more subtle if you would be allowed to view, but not to react/post in the thread.

    But this option is only available for vendors?

    If all that happens for being a prick is you just can't post in one thread that is not much of a punishment. I could change it but I like removing someone from the thread completely. This way they don't quote a post and just go start a new thread.
