Topic: userlist in this forum

Can someone make the userlist invisible to non logged in users?

I think that spammer signatures take advantage of the open approach to the user base.

No sense because private info hidden from user profile and bat easy can register on forums.

True but the search engines see it, so even when we ban a spammer, their signatures are still there doing their 'job'.

examples (check banned user: hunk888)

I have no problem with that. But is it not more work?

The admins will need to go through all banned members and delete them.

Probably wouldn't be too hard to write a query for mysql to delete all banned users?

It would make a good extension or mod to this/other forums.

Hi dimkalinux

I'm not sure what you mean.

But my main suggestion would be to remove all banned users from /forums/users/ and keep all bans in /forums/admin/bans.php

Not all banned users is spamers.
If user is spamer - delete it (remove user and all posts).

Hi dimkalinux

Moderators can not delete users so the job should fall either on admins or on moderators should the admins decide to give us such rights.
