User:D/List of banned users (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. It's a very very bad idea of a page. This page only serves to encourage trolls. A lot of these users, who are trolls, should be forgotten in the depths of the Chicken Coop/Chicken Coop lite*cough* All things in moderation archives and be an afterthought in casual discussion, not be part of a hall of notoriety. I've strictly advised against its maintenance years ago, but now I'm seeing users trying to do exactly that. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:27, 30 April 2023 (UTC)
    Isn't it more like a "Hall of Shame"? Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 19:27, 30 April 2023 (UTC)
    Nobody should be editing it anyway because it's in a private user space. Any edits not made by that user should be removed.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 07:51, 1 May 2023 (UTC)
  2. At the very least, this list should not be here, a hard-to-find stub of a user who abused their tech rights and was permabanned (and who ironically is not in the current list of banned users, showing the problem of irregular maintenance.) That aside, I also agree with LGM that this sort of thing feeds trolls, so I lean toward it being wiped than moved. BobJohnson (talk) 19:11, 30 April 2023 (UTC)
  3. This is dumb, and the user who made it is long gone. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 04:45, 1 May 2023 (UTC)


  1. I dunno if we need this thing specifically — we don't need to feed trolls — but we should have some resource for sysops (particularly new sysops) to be able to recognize the signs of chronically returning anti-productive users so they can be dealt with as efficiently as possible.

    That's what chicken coop archives are for. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:58, 30 April 2023 (UTC)
    I often find it difficult to recognize recurring banned users. This list however is no help. I don't find the coop archives useful either. A guide might help if someone is up to the task. Bongolian (talk) 04:57, 1 May 2023 (UTC)
    A guide is essentially what I had in mind. Like, say, what are the patterns that indicate an account or edit being made by Ken, Kamen Rider, Mikemikemev, etc.? Luigifan18 (talk) 20:26, 3 May 2023 (UTC)
  2. Community standards says: "An editor's user page, and other pages in their user space, is their personal space and they are free to do with it what they want (with common-sense-exceptions, such as patently offensive material, copyright violations or spam)." It's in a user's space and I seriously doubt that anybody is going to find it easily. If it were a regular "article" I would vote for removal.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 19:30, 30 April 2023 (UTC)
