Release Notes


Group Ban

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.

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.

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.

  2. 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
