I think it would be appriciated if there would be a forum ban list, something like the removed players list, with the names of members who got a forum ban.
With information like:
- where they got that ban for. (bad language, threatening, etc)
- for how long the are banned. (3 days, a week, etc)
- who (moderator) banned them.
It's just an idea to get a better view for all the members to see why someone is banned, etc.
I don't know if dragging it out in the open is a good idea. Quite likely it would result in a lot of discussions by people who haven't even seen what happened. I also don't like the idea to put players on display as "criminals", especially considering how easily bans are given. The players who get a ban should get an explanation (and they shouldn't get a ban unless they have been warned), and they should be told who banned them. Besides that, I think there should be something in the FAQ about bans (it's a system I haven't seen used in any other forums), and maybe there should be information on how many players are on a ban at a given time.
Belgianfreak proposed something similar a while ago, and we had some discussion about it, but I don't remember exactly when, what the thread was called or even in which forum it was, so looking for it sounds rather hopeless.
Edit: D'oh, I am slow.
