Just curious if that star (*) by the word "members" (under someone's screen name) indicates a persons banned?

 

I'm out of the loop on a lot of stuff, but have been on forums long enough to know there's little clues and heads up planted  around (here and there) lol

 

And, one other question,  are there temporary bans here or just permanent bans? Just curious because both exist elsewhere but you can never be too sure, and I like to ask and not assume.

The asterisk next to a persons group means that they can log on and read, but cannot post.  These are designated as such in hopes that they will continue to learn.  We cannot go into why anyone has been designated as such.

 

Nothing on this site is permanent, though we may state they are.  We cannot know if God will change a person and they will be allowed back.

Thanks Onelight, yeah most sites don't discuss their moderation with posters, so I definitely wouldn't inquire of specifics, I was just curious how to read that sign (here). For example, at CF your light bulb goes out when your banned, and by that you are given to know (then) you must count down 30 days before you can talk to any person whose light bulb is out. So its good to know these little signs (at whichever board), because each board is different and you want to read those cues correctly.

 

But hey, over there I was old enough to have given birth to many of their moderators or even be their grandmother. So it was sorta cute getting a lecture there sometimes. Well, if you left out chapter verses and got reported for a verse of scripture and had to tell them where that was lol

 

That has happened.

 

Thanks for the heads up, just so I know
