Allow Moderators To Un-Ban

Post by Gasol_The_Great on October 23rd 2010, 4:52 am

Ok, this is something I have been wanting for awhile. If moderators are allowed to ban members, I believe they should be able to un-ban them as well.

I know its not "essential" but I think it would be nice feature to have just incase a situation would arise where it would be needed.

Basically, just add an option for "Un-Ban This Member" in the "Administrate This User" part of member's profiles available to Mods.

I think this would be a good feature, I've always found it weird that a moderator can ban someone but not unban them.

Alright, I just ran into a situation where I really needed this feature.

Today I banned a member, who moments later we discovered did not deserve a ban.

No Admin was online, and he the member has to wait to get back onto the site.

Please vote yes for this. We really need it.

I did find it annoying that I had to wait for an admin to log in to unban someone. Voted yes.

I vote YES would be some thing that all staff would like.

maybe it could be set for just some staff thou or you (the admin can pick what staff get the right ) that way you know who is unbanning them and it will come up in the admin page.

but would like this on my site

Ultimately, I would hope that Forumotion allows us to customize permissions/powers for staff. AKA: Limit powers to certain Administrators, and disallow certain staff (such as Packagers, Reviewers, etc.) from having ban permissions even though they may have moderator permissions in a certain forum.

Although that is probably some ways away at the moment...

Right now, I would just like to see an "un-ban" button in members' profiles that is visible to everyone with moderator powers. That would satisfy me at least for now...
