I do agree that outdated information is a bit annoying. All these threads that you get linked for getting information should actively be updated but that isn't the case.If it's not used anymore the rank page needs to be updated then, something I mention further back in this thread.CuriousGalaxy91 wrote:It may have been changed. A permanent is ban is currently a ban to a certain date in 2552. It's a bit tricky to find some perma banned (in theory long temporary ban) users as a good example of official ban duration.Look at the very last rank you can get. If people are permanently banned, why aren't they given this rank.CuriousGalaxy91 wrote:I don't know why there is no clear way to see who is banned on the forums or not. I think a perma banned used should be detected much more easily on the forums. There is nothing that says if user A is forum banned or not when you search on the forums. Maybe there forum rank should change to red letters written as "BANNED" and the image should change. There forum signature should also be changed in my opinion so you can see if the user has a temporary or permanent ban with red letters instead of nothing.
This is the official profile ban duration for a perma banned user.

A forum ban in approximately 500 years to the time when the Halo story do take place. This is the message for 2 different users for reference so you can see the official ban duration is the same.Quote:USER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL 10/29/2552 5:00 PM PST DUE TO CREATING MULTIPLE OR ALTERNATE ACCOUNTS
A user profile that is perma banned has no clear way that you can see if he is prema banned or not without reading behind the lines in the text that says why the ban was given and how long it will stay on that account.
