    Do you still put banned on the profiles of members that have been banned or has that practice been stopped?

    That was changed a long time ago.
    Now there is no way to look at a members name and tell.

    Is that posted somewhere?
    If not I would like a mod to verify that is correct.

    Not that I know of.
    It's something I noticed months ago.

    I just looked up a banned member and got the message "This user's profile is not available".

    I don't know why I've never been banned.

    In the past, the software itself noted a member as banned, it wasn't something mods did and with the new software, I honestly don't know what members see.

    On many it says "Well known member" below their names, and appears just as it would if they were still here.

    If a member is now banned from HT, the software now changes their user name on postings by them from bolded blue font to a normal black type font with a line through the user name from what I have notice of the few ho have been banned since the current platform for the site was adopted.

    Can an example of that be shown?
    All the ones I'm seeing appear normal.

    Yeah, so am I. Maybe every banned member can post again?

    That's why I said that I wasn't sure what members saw, rather than answering as Shrek did. Mods see thread deletions, struck through in red and banned members, struck through in black.

    Your screenshot is not the same at all for me and the member's name is stuck. I'm sure the new program works very well for most groups but HT's unique history seems to require a bit more transparency.

    By default the software puts a line through the name of the person.
