Added ability to unban banned posters on your blog

Until today, you could permanently ban someone from posting on your blog. When you did, all their previous posts were deleted. Starting today, when you ban someone, only new posts are banned. Also, you can see who you've banned from posting in your blog - and unban them. When you unban them, new posts will show up.

i would also like the ability to ban someone from my blog, without them ever having posted in it, and not allow the banned person to read my blog, OR my profile.

there are members that visit all the time, and they do this only to upset me i am sure, because they are already blocked, and would know that i blocked them.. one very offensive person looks at my profile DAILY.. and he has sent me veiled threats...i feel like i am being stalked... but looking is not violating ToU, neither is "suggesting" so i am powerless to prevent this.

I've heard this request a few times recently - I'll bump up the project a bit on the list. Thanks.

I will never know why I would want to unban someone...

After all... you wouldn't ban them unless you had a good reason?

Hey, that's what I thought until I heard the complaints... there is often fights between bloggers that gets resolved.

Please, please, please!
I'd love the ability to post pics in my blog.
Using the [img src] tag would be a a huge improvement.
I have several blogs on other sites and all of them
allow the posting of pictures with the [img src] tag.
I do understand bandwidth issues as I have my own forum
that I run but maybe if you make it a paid member feature?

BTW, thanks for all the improvements so far!

Yah, I'm investigating allowing members to link to their album photos. We won't allow linking off site tho.

What I miss in your post is the fact that so far people were banning others WITHOUT KNOWING it because (unlike deletion of a comment) there was NO confirm 'box'.... if you got to the 'ban' link by accident, that was it, and all comments were gone.

It has happened to quite a few. And some may be surprised to see (like I was) that they have members banned they didn't know (I had three handles banned, handles that were supposedly 'unbanned' by peepz from the staff quite a while back). So, question is: if someone NOW unbans those that were wrongly banned earlier, will their comments be reinstated when a blogger asks for such a restoration?

Yah... I guess I could restore posts on a case by case basis... hopefully, there will not be any takers
