April Fools - Ban User

vB Version: 3.7.0 RC 1 Rating: (9 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 81
Released: 01 Apr 2008 Last Update: 01 Apr 2008 Downloads: 560
Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

A slight modification of an in house experiment described here.

Users are prompted with the option to ban any user they choose for a period within 3-30 days. Upon submitting, there is a half second pause, then the username switches with their own name followed with another half second pause, before the script finally submits. Don't worry -- the user input here is completely ignored.

The entered username is completely ignored, and the user submitting the form is banned for the period they entered.

Refer to attached screenshots for more info.

It's up to you to link to this file, and you can also view ban.php?do=view for a list of banned users.


... you may want to unban some of these users the next day. No pressure though.

So I just can't go an unban them all easily. I now have to get them to report to me that they were banned. :s which is a pain cos there are some hundred+ ppl

Is there something I am missing? How can I mass-unban everyone?
I am having the same issue and I don't remember even installing this mod. Any suggestions?

Nice... I made some edits... changed it actually ban from 10 to 120 MINUTES (although it still says "Days" so if someone bans someone for 30 days it really becomes 30 minutes... should keep anyone from being annoyed too much.

Even when the "fun" is over I think I'll keep it for people who feel the need to ban themselves, like a self imposed "cool off" period.

Thanks

Hey Joe... What did you change to make to minutes instead of days?

In the .php file find the line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

86400 is the number of seconds in 1 day (60 * 60 * 24)... Change it to the number of seconds in one minute (60) to make the ban in minutes rather than days.

Just keep in mind the scheduled task that unbans people I think runs only once every hour by default so a "5 minute" ban will last until the scheduled task runs after the ban is up.

I would absolutely love this if it could be updated for vBulletin 4.x.

Yes, I'm already planning how to screw with my users next year. I'm a mean-spirited guy, what can I say?

What if we were to move the user to a group that isn't a banned group? Would this still move them back when time's up or manually via the page?
