You could always redirect them to one of my domains as well www.newsucks500.com It's even more nasty and less restricted then theybannedme.com

I would like to add to this to make it even better. Why fuss with users and make them think they were permanently banned? Why not trick them into thinking the sites down? Be creative.

first off in the header put this code


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

Create a new file and save it as updates.php

and in that file, well be creative but put this


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

upload that file to your forum root directory.

and walla! instant trick. OR!

you can fake a database error. that seems to work even better

How do you do this? It'd be nice to make them think there's always a database error. Thanks!

Read theybannedme.com's Home Page before you make it your redirect page.

This can kick your forum out of google or kill your ranking (meta refresh for guests)

perhaps no good idea

thanks

we used to use something like this. I called it "the gay". I made a new banned usergroup with the title "got the gay". only that usergroup would get the redirect and we sent them to one of those Last Measure shock sites that pops up a million popups of gay porn while a voice scream "hey everyone I'm looking at gay porn". we would only use it on people who were attacking the website as a way to attack back.

it was fun for the nonbanned users becasue when they'd see an ass causing trouble & then all the sudden their title changed to "got the gay" they all knew what the user was seeing / hearing.

I've since stopped using it since the laws changed and it's now illegal to blindly link or forward people into porn. wasn't worth the possible legal headaches.

I'd reinstate it if I had a good site to use.
