you could introduce a "banned user" level which only differs from the non user level except where their issues are concerned
Probably best not to suggest measures that might require a wholesale rewrite of the forum software unless you're an expert PHP coder familiar with XenForo 2 internals and willing to donate time to the project.

I’m not sure if this is the exact thread for this, but I don’t think it warrants a thread of its own, so here goes.

WubbaLubbaDubDub, despite being permanently banned, is not tagged as being banned.

It was a difference in methodology, nothing less. The user is banned.

Don’t, like, answer for me, okay? I’m not opposed to getting ideas.

It's probably a minor issue compared to the others, but the date and time a ban will be lifted doesn't seem to respect time zone preference settings either. My recent three-day ban told me I can come back Jan 14 at 07:00... but I had no idea when that was meant to be, as I don't know what the server default time is.

The ban message also told me I was banned for 'Rules violations' without any reference on which rule that would be. A friend willing to take a screenshot for me showed me the moderator message along the lines of "take a few days off to think about this", but, well... if I didn't have someone willing to do that, I wouldn't even know what I'm supposed to be thinking about, if anything at all :p
