How can i suspend a member for xx days?

Does such feature exist?

Admin Area. Go to Users, find the User, click Suspend

As a Suspended member can’t log in, I guess it would be pointless to send them an explanation PM

How do they know they’ve been Suspended and for how long?
Do we care?

Sending preliminary warning PMs seems adequate enough IMHO


If you continue to violate Forum Policy your account will be Suspended for __ days

PMs to suspended members from Staff members still get mailed. No other PMs will however.

Assuming the user has not disabled all emails already…

So it would be possible for a Mod to go to the member’s Preferences, enable emails, Suspend, and then re-disable emails.

Sounds good enough to me.

I thought the OP was asking whether is was possible to suspend a user for n days

There’s no automated way to set a time period for the suspension right now, is there?

So to be clear, you would also have to un-suspend the user manually when desired. Right?

Automated? not that I know of.

But Suspensions do time out.

Of course if you Suspend for 999,999 days that’s effectively a permanent Ban

Nevermind… I should have looked before speaking…

The suspension UI does ask for a number of days for the suspension (so it will automatically end when its done).
