Was chatting to someone on here recently who is now banned from the site. Are the bans permanent or temporary? Just curious so I don't step out of line lol

They're usually temporary except after repeated temp bans (resulting in a permaban) or if the user requests a permanent ban in Ask A Moderator.

Ah OK cheers, how long do the bans usually last if they are only temporary?

As a starting point I believe it's one week, but for rule breaking the length of the ban escalates depending on how many temp bans have been issued in the past.

For requested temp bans the duration is pretty much custom - again, anything from a week to about two years! Most people don't make it that long before they get withdrawal symptoms though.

Fair enough, thanks. I'll have a look next week to see if this person is still banned or not.

Cheers again.
