    • Added a new group ability, “Manage ban list”
      • By default, only the Owners role has this ability
      • Roles which are granted this ability are also granted the “Eject Members from this Group” and “Remove Members from Roles” abilities
    • Added ability to ban users from groups
      • Group members with the “Manage ban list” ability will be able to add or remove other users to and from the group ban list
      • A user who is banned from a group cannot join it either directly or through an invitation
      • When a group member is banned from the group, they are automatically ejected
      • Group Owners cannot be banned
      • The ban list for a group can store a maximum of 500 entries
  • Usage notes
    • Use the GroupBan project viewer for the following operations:
      • Managing the “Manage ban list” ability for various group roles
      • Viewing the group ban list
      • Adding or removing avatars from the group ban list
    • Prior the group ban project's deployment to all server channels, group bans will only be enforced by simulators which support the feature.
      • For example, when group ban is only supported on LeTigre RC and Second Life Server channels, a user who was banned from a group may still be able to join a group while in a region on the ‘Second Life RC Magnum’ channel
    • When a user is banned from a group, their viewer version does not matter; they will be unable to join the group while in a simulator that supports group ban.
    • Other details about using the group ban feature can be found here.
