Well there was a time when Banned would appear on any of their past posts, but I haven't seen that in a long time.

Just wondering.

You mean you weren't informed yet? :laugh:

Actually, it's a good question. Even suspended. I contacted someone a few weeks ago to find out where they had been, and they informed me they were on an enforced vacation. No indication from their profile.

This is kind of complicated because I think the mods have different ways to ban. Once I was banned and clicked on my username and it said "This users profile not available" not to be confused with "This user has chosen to keep their profile hidden". The other time I was banned there was no indication at all that I was banned. I'm pretty sure though that if you get perma-banned then it says "This users profile not available" and that's permanent.

Yes, I have gotten into trouble a couple times drunk-posting but I've given up drinking. :)

We can see users that are banned with mod permissions at least.

Most of the time this information isn't relayed to the general public (you sorry sacks of... :p ). As @ Sneeky said, you may see the user's name struck out. Though I do wonder in some cases if that reflects over to users or not. I don't recall every seeing anyone's name struck out until I became a mod last week.

You could always stalk someone's profile you think is banned...easy way to tell is if they're last online time isn't changing and if their recent posts don't seem to jive with what you may or may not remember. Stalking on TPU isn't a recommended pattern, so if you do this, you do so under your own recognizance.

You could do what I did in some very select situations where I was involved in a situation, and a party may have been banned or infracted, I would then contact an admin, usually a higher up admin like Sneeky, Tatty or Erocker. If they feel it is okay to share information in regards to the situation, they'll respond. I cannot condone that as an officially supported method, but if it is something you feel it is important you know then make the effort to reach out to us and make your case.

Cool. Could you show that for us? Try banning yourself, please?

I could very easily make it possible for you if you would like. Also since the answer has solved the question, I am going to close up shop before this gets any more off topic.

@CAPSLOCKSTUCK you have a PM on this matter.

After further review, it appears only moderation will see the names as being struck out. Sorry @CAPSLOCKSTUCK

It appears there is no real way to tell if they have been banned by the majority of users. I would assume that unless @W1zzard wants to add functionality for users to see, I guess you cannot tell at all.
