I have been banned a couple of times in the forum (not proud of it) and the message the site gives you when trying to log on only show you the info regarding the time you have been banned and the time the ban ends.
So, a small suggestion for that matter: Could you add a link to the post the banned user has been banned for right in the same log message?
I'm not complaining about anything, this is just something that popped out in my head for absolutely no reason

That should actually be implemented because you DON'T actually know WHY you were banned in the first place until you return from it which annoys me ALOT.

What mods should be doing is checking to see if they have two warnings before issuing a third one. Instead of issuing a third warning which triggers an automatic ban, they should manually ban them for three days and write in the reason and post that did it.

On the flipside, you could always just ask a mod on some external communication site to ask. Or you could just not get three warnings in the first place ;)

It's still a fair thing to ask for, tbh.

just don't get three warnings

you'll see what post got you the final warning when you get unbanned anyway, why do you need to know it as soon as you get banned
(geno's idea is better though)

because if you know what you did wrong in first place you can use the banning time to reflect about what you did wrong and how to fix it

that's a very good point (idk how many people would do that for real but still)

nobody wants to make a twitter or install Skype just to ask a question like that but slack exists now so

i'll be the first to admit that i have NEVER checked to see if a user had 2 warnings already before warning them (and i've probably auto-banned a user for 3 days due to a warning that i've distributed) so i'll always check now and if they have 2 warnings i'll manually ban them for 3 days and write the reasoning behind it. that's a good idea.

but yeah really just don't get three warnings lol

i didn't say it was? i was just adding that onto the end of my post
if you don't get three warnings you wont get banned and you wont need to know why you were banned because you werent banned. simple, dude

i literally just said that from now on i'll check before i warn people and if it's gonna be the third warning i'll manually enter the ban and put the reasoning in. that's an answer to "why the f*** was i banned". i can't say every mod is gonna do this now but it's a good idea.
