    Rats. Now all the previously banned posters have the same new avatar. It was much more helpful when they still had the old CC avatar.

    @jym626 look again. The dearly departed have a different atatar than say...mine.

    It’s now...but not the same as everyone who is active!

    ? On the full site, I see the old avatar. But on mobile, it's the new one.
    (I mean for banned posters.)

    I have only been here since 2009 but I really have never really understood the jail bars or the banned.
    I guess it is time I asked--even though I feel silly--!?

    Jail bars are given for either one very serious violation of the Terms of Service, or several more minor violations that add up. There's a point system for it. The moderators didn't design it!

    We ban posters if their very first post is a TOS violation (usually it's spamming). It takes several violations for someone to be banned, typically. Or sometimes a user will respond very abusively to a moderator, and that's a bannable offense. It takes a LOT for a long-time user to be banned - we give second and third chances! It still happens, though.

    If you have further questions about moderation, you can send me a PM. :)

    Hmmm. on both mobile and laptop, I see the new avatar for banned posters, whether they were banned this morning or years ago. Weird.

    Who cares about banned posters if they've already been banned?

    @doschicos sometimes it’s nice to know if a poster is amongst the departed...so I don’t write a response to them.

    @Semere You need to have 15 posts before you can send a private message to someone. However, you can receive them and reply back sooner.

    If you're on desktop, you might be able to hover over the picture on their profile and it'll say "username (Banned)". At least if they haven't changed it in the update. Not sure how to do it on mobile.

    @thumper1, that new avatar for banned members (the one that includes a bullseye) is the same icon that appears at the top of the entire revamped website when viewed on a PC or on my iPhone. I've tried raising the issue a few times (including through DM), to no avail.

    It's still not clear to me if it's intentional or a mistake, but it seems odd that they'd intentionally choose the same icon to connote both "Welcome!" and "banned."

    @LucieTheLakie I totally missed that subtle distinction of the bullseye. You are correct. Tagging @CCadmin_Sorin

    Folks...I totally agree...it’s weird that the welcome and the boot are the same icon...

    Maybe they goofed.

    The easiest way to fix this...get rid of the bullseye on the welcome spot. Just use the grad cap.

    I wish there is a way to cancel a draft. Right now I have to write ............ or deleted or 10 chars and post. Or to save the draft and can only delete it a couple days later.

    @coolweather

    Is this a recent thing? I’ve been able to delete saved drafts within minutes of saving them.

    Once you POST a post, you can no longer delete it...you can only edit...and would need to write “post deleted” or something like that.

    But a draft? That can be deleted.

    ETA....I just did a response here and saved it as a draft...and I also just deleted it...no problem.

    I can delete the draft now. I was not able to delete the saved drafts right away in the past. Thanks.
