Group Ban FAQ

  • What does group ban do?
    • The group ban feature allows certain group members to specify that certain avatars cannot join the group. When an existing group member is banned, they are also automatically ejected from the group.
  • Who can ban somebody from a group?
    • Only group members with the new “Manage ban list” ability can add or remove avatars from the ban list. By default, only group members in the “Owners” role have the Manage ban list” ability, although this ability may be granted to other group roles.
    • A group role with “Manage ban list” ability will also automatically have “Eject Members from this Group” and “Remove Members from Roles” abilities, as the latter abilities are required in order to ban a group member.
  • What are the limitations of group ban?
    • Group members belonging to the “Owners” role cannot be banned from the group (the same rule applies to ejection).
    • A group may have up to 500 avatars in its ban list. When a group hits this limit, some avatars must be removed from the ban list before others may be added.
    • Group bans are only enforced on simulators which support group ban. During the server RC phase, avatars banned from groups will still be able to join them from non-group-ban simulators (although such users may be ejected from the group at any time).
  • How do I ban somebody from my group?
    1. Login with a viewer that supports group ban
    2. Go to a region that supports group ban
    3. Ensure that you have “Manage ban list” ability
      • This information is found in the group info floater, under ‘Roles’ -> ‘ROLES’ -> ‘Allowed Abilities’ panel -> ‘Group Ban’ section
    4. To ban via the group member list,
      1. Open the group info floater’
      2. Open ‘Roles’ -> ‘MEMBERS’, and select the group members you wish to ban
      3. Hit the ‘Ban Member(s)’ button
      4. The selected group members will be ejected from the group and added to the ban list
    5. To ban any user from your group (a member or not)
      1. Open the group info floater
      2. Open ‘Roles’ -> ‘BANNNED AGENTS’
      3. Hit the ‘Ban Resident(s)’ button
      4. Using the people picker floater, find the avatars you wish to ban
      5. Hit the ‘Ban Residents’ button
      6. The avatars will be added to the ban list. If they were group members, they will also be ejected from the group.
  • How do I unban somebody from my group?
    1. Login with a viewer that supports group ban
    2. Go to a region that supports group ban
    3. Ensure that you have “Manage ban list” ability
    4. Open the group info floater
    5. Open ‘Roles’ -> ‘BANNNED AGENTS’
    6. Select the banned agents you wish to unbar
    7. Hit the ‘Remove Ban(s)’ button
  • Where can I test group ban?
    • Sims which support group ban will soon be available on parts of Aditi, and test viewers will be made available. Stay tuned for updates.

Known issues for group ban

  • MAINT-3341 When a group member loses his 'Eject members from this group' ability and the member attempts to ban another group member, the "You ejected user from group" message incorrectly appears, in addition to the correct message stating that ejection failed due to insufficient permissions.
  • MAINT-3420 When banning a group member who has already left the group (unbeknownst to the viewer), the "You ejected user from group" message incorrectly appears, in addition to the correct message stating that ejection failed because the target is not a member.
  • MAINT-3424 Viewer Ban date doesn't display it in SL time (Pacific Standard Time) - instead, it shows the date in UTC (viewer UI)
