A Google Image Search produces the following:


So ours would look about the same. I believe if the admin has chosen to enter a reason for the ban it would be displayed as well.

From experience or just via internet searching? If by experience, then there's your problem.

On one Minecraft server, I had some moderator powers. I intended to ban someone for 3 days, but it turned out to be 3 seconds. (Vanilla Minecraft doesn't give this option; if someone is banned, it has to manually be undone.)

Then there are the really short blocks on Wikipedia. If the admin blocks the wrong person by accident, it can be under a minute, but there was also a time (thought it was mentioned on either WP:STOCKS or WP:LAME, but it's not) where someone was blocked for 30 seconds intentionally.

I've been banned once, it just says "sorry you have been banned" or something like that with a reason.

Ask Colonel Jack O’Neill the next time he comes back to whine about what NPR thinks about urban freeways.

A lot of times the short (less than a few hours) blocks are intended as a wake-up call/emergency stop: "Hey, stop what you're doing and pay attention to what people are saying on your talk page".

The few times I blocked people on Wikipedia, I would always block the sillier vandals for 37 hours, both as a reference to The Price is Right and 1 day, 13 hours is a weird enough time period that the ban probably expires while they're sleeping, meaning they're less likely to be hanging around waiting for the ban to end so they can start causing problems again.

Ah yes I seem to recall he didn’t listen to Colonel O’Neill when he said not to follow him through the Stargate, the result was much more fitting.

I tried to put it here but it won't work : (  It's like the regular login page but right under "AJAX Chat" it says "User or IP is banned."

Can confirm this. The chat is more dangerous for newbies because it doesn't display who is a mod/admin and who isn't, unlike the main forum (learned that the hard way).  :spin:

Yes it does. Mod names show up in blue, admin names in red.

Chat is different. You get kicked if you are annoying. The length of the kick depends on how many kicks it takes for you to learn. General best practice: contribute to the conversation at hand, don't constantly change topics, don't make fun of people you don't know.

And how exactly would a newbie know that?
