LOL I am working on adding a Gallery to Ouch Too at the moment and bill log as QL soon. I think not able to post means QL can still read and banned is cant do ANYTHING lol. I will let you ban QL tomorrow and we can see what that looks like. only thing is is dont ban my ip or I wont be able to access the site as myself or Ouch Too Archive.

I hope you have a lovely evening  >hugs<

Just tried to give QL a full ban (to test if the forum becomes unreadable to QL) but for some reason it didn't save what I'd entered - on mum's PC at the mo, will try again at home without distractions!

Using the QL account now I can't post but I can read the board. I will go and look at the admin settings. Remember it is important that QL is not ip banned otherwise I wont be able to get in at all.

To test the system further I could ask my sister to join and ban her (she wont mind).

Kizzy you set the ban correctly (see screenshot), but it still lets me read the board.

When people have been banned on Aimoo I usually ban their ip too which we cant do with QL, so I will get my sister to join because she is far away up north and has a different ip.

Ah, so it did save my settings after all - phew!

Remember it is important that QL is not ip banned otherwise I wont be able to get in at all.

That'd be a good start, wouldn't it - me banning you  >doh< >yikes< >lol<

Look forward to practising on your sis - good idea, that  >biggrin<

 >lol< yes it would be funny but only for 5 minutes.

I really like the way we can determine so many settings eg we can put a time limit on a ban eg 2 days, which means the automated system takes care of the unbanning.

I will phone my sister soon and see when she is free to come and play.

Kizzy,

Please see Palindrome's thread for more info and then look at these screen shots. With my sister's help I was able to see there are two places we need to write the name when name banning. Please see arrows in screenshots below.
 >tah<

It is good to be able to work together to understand how and why  >thumbsup<

I am going offline for a bit I'll be back later.

ttfn  >rainbow<

This is part of a moderation test....

Nice one, Pink, now if someone else could report your post and announce they've done it.....

(if it was being done 'for real', of course, the reporting poster would remain anonymous to other posters like on the Beeb boards, I assume - only one way to find out  >biggrin<)

Thanks, Sherbs - it has just notified me (below the 'Hello' [name] at the top left-hand corner, 'there are currently (1) moderator reports open) so I don't even have to check PMs.  I am now going to use the 'Moderate' option to take action on the post...

- ooh, that's interesting.  I went to submit this post and a warning came up in a red box above the Subject line:

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.
