Why use Redirect Banned Users?

If you have banned users there is no reason for them to visit your site at all. So with this mod it will redirect them off site. You can send them to a friendly site such as google or you can send them to a nasty site. You can even send them to your competitors or rivals site, let them deal with the banned users.

The Lite version uses usergroup 8 as the banned usergroup, the Pro version you can choose which usergroups are the banned ones. In the Lite version banned users will be redirected to google.com.

There is another cool feature with this mod, lets say you don't want to ban a particular user, but you want to make his browsing experience less than desirable. With this mod you can torment these users by slowing down page rendering times on your site for them. Say setting it to 20 (seconds) each time they changes pages it will take a additional 20 seconds for the pages to load in their browser.

That is just a safe place to send them, with the pro version you can redirect them to any site, or page.

So with the pro version, I can redirect differing banned user groups to separate URLs? For instance, if I have the following banned groups, can I do this?:

trolls - user ID 10 - redirect URL xhttp://xyz.com
spammers - user ID 11 - redirect URL xhttp://12121212.com
ass-clowns - user group ID 12 - redirect URL xhttp://yoyo.com
etc.?

Please let me know. Thanks!

No, all the banned usergroups will be sent to the same url, you just have the option to send them to a url of your choosing.

To clarify, can I have one user group that will redirect to another URL using this mod, without redirecting every banned user there?

IE: One user group that is "Banned Users" (That simply get the stock vb "You have been banned" message,
and another usergroup that is "Redirected Banned Users" which will go to that URL?

If so, it's probably best to just have the one usergroup that is redirected to that one URL.

Creating multiple groups that would redirect to that same URL might just create confusion?
