Something to tell you when your ban expires would be nice.
« on: August 28, 2011, 12:05:20 AM »
During my recent little vacay, I learned that it's a bit of a guess as to when your ban expires, and I don't really think that's a good thing.

So after waiting two + some-odd days, I decided I'd contact Onyx since he was the harbinger and ask him for an appeal, to which I learned my ban was about to expire in a couple hours(which he ended up repealing anyway that lovable oaf :3).

That made me think something on the ban page along the lines of "Your ban will expire on: *Date*" would be a handy little addition to the site, so I'm making a suggestion for it.

That was actually my fault.  I should have put in the reason as well as how long the ban was for.

There wasn't a reason attached at all. :lol:

In that case, having the forum automate it so if you do forget it'll still be there seems like it'd be helpful.

No, because if it's automated it's more likely never to be filled in or explained.

In that case, go beat up Onyx for me. :lol:

Is it possible to whip up a way to make it impossible to ban someone without a reason attached?
