Default [SOLVED] Why are things different when a member gets banned?

I am really sorry if starting this thread breaks any rules, but I just have been wondering this for a while now. Why is it that when some people get banned, you can see their posts and gifts, but others you can not? Just wondering. I am posting a pic so you can see what I mean.

I think some people ask to have their account deleted so they have nothing that shows up.

Hmm.. good topic to bring up!I think it's because they specifically asked to have their account deleted. It's so sad to see members go.. it makes me upset. =(By the way, what happened to Mikki? I can remember talking with her over the summer yet she seems to have been banned, sadly. Hopefully it was of her own free will... she was an awesome individual!Thanks,Sarah

I assure you, if someone's name says "banned" it was not of their free will, it was a conscious choice by the staff to "lock them out".

When it says "posts: n/a", they have asked for their account to be deleted.

indeed. some people run out of time, lose grades, etc., and quit due to this. others.... well, let us just say mikki and runxawaysmile being banned was not due to them accidentally stepping on someone's toe...

Users are banned for various reasons, and it's really between the staff and the user as to why. Believe me, in all cases, it is warranted, and not something we take lightly.

If Justin will forgive me for chiming in I'd like to add that no one gets banned without knowing why, and without a pretty good idea that it's coming. People sometimes think that if they make the smallest mistake, we ban them, and that's just not true.

I can attest to this. I have been a member for a while, and have seen members get banned. It is never out of the blue. The WI staff, from what I can see, tries to be extremely forgiving and I have seen for myself that some members that end up getting banned have been given multiple warnings. is full of wonderfully kind, helpful people, and the staff does a great job of keeping it that way! Thanks guys!
