What is this?

Chris -
I've notice something new in V8 on the "Investigate user, by IP address" screen. I see there is a 'Member banned:' and a 'Submitter banned:'. The "member banned" I think I understand, but could you explain what "submitter banned" is?

Thanks!

Steve

Bans them from submitting content. It's not a new feature, just it's been made available here for consistency (used to just be in action log IIRC).

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

When I was trying to figure out what it was for, I was seeing submitter (person), not action (submission).
