Captain Ewok - an idea to help with moderation

Captain, could you create an option for moderators to be able to block or ban a particular member from a thread in the event that they are continuously and deliberately disregarding the TOS? This would be a better solution than simply locking the thread if such violations don't call for an outright suspension from the entire site.

Right now, it is quite easy to get a thread locked by just coming onto a thread and being disruptive, and currently the standard response from moderation is to give general warnings followed by locking the thread where it is taking place. However, the problem isn't with the thread itself but with a one or maybe a few members who derail an otherwise meaningful discussion.

now that would be a cool way to stop people from inappropriate personal attacks.

BTW, is that sig image really apporpriate for this site? people have been censured for use of the term "anchor baby" on this site before.

You should try reporting it. See what the mods think.

Intriguing idea. I will see if it is technically feasible to do.

Once again, we're encouraging technical solutions instead of social solutions. Wiktionary defines a moderator as "an arbitrator or mediator." How about we start encouraging more arbitration and mediation, and less button-pushing?

Sometimes the button pushing is the only way to stop them.

100% agreed. Indeed, *sometimes* the button-pushing is the only way. But not always. In fact, not in most cases. So why has button-pushing become the tool of first resort?

I'm pleased with the idea. :thumbs:

BUT I still think moderators need to be less trigger-happy.
