April Fools - Ban User

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.

I recommend an announcement of some sort... but email works I suppose.

Be creative.

Dear (Joe),

We have noticed you have been a good guy lately, we want to award you with something. <snip>
