Listing number of bans

Listing number of bans

Short, concise description of the idea
I suggest that the number of times a user has been banned should show in userinfo.

Full description of the idea
My idea is to display how many times a user has been banned on their UserInfo page. This would allow you to kind of do a background check before you add someone to an exclusive filter, for instance. If someone has 27 friends but 10 bans, that could tell you that this person tends to be a troublemaker...or at least has a penchant for pissing people off. :)

An ordered list of benefits

  • 1. Would allow users to get an idea of what kind of person another user is before giving them trust.
  • 2. Would provide incentive to 'play nice' with the threat of getting a bad reputation, leading to possible social isolation.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • 1. Could result in 'ban wars'. I.e., get pissed at someone, ban them and get all your friends to ban them or use a bunch of codes to create new users to ban them.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I don't know any of the technicalities involved, but obviously the UserInfo page would need to be changed.
