Hi :wavey:

I was just wondering...Sometimes I see that someone gets banned and then is back on the board in a week or so...But sometimes people get banned and you don't ever see them back...Are there different kind of bans or something like that?

Also...How do you make sure the banned person doesn't make a new account? Do you block his/her IP address or something?

Thanks! :)

Sometimes people get sent to their rooms rather than thrown out of the house. Sometimes people get second chances, too.

There are ways around even IP bans (which we try to avoid unless someone's using a fixed IP), so there's not much you can do to prevent someone from trying to come back under another username if they're really determined and have nothing better to do than get banned over and over again. You just have to ban them over and over again. Some people are addicted to message boards, some people seem addicted to getting kicked off of them ;)
