Scratchers cannot ban each other

Often people think that Scratchers can ban each other. This is not true and this article should emphasize it. Also, if you ever read someone saying "so and so banned me", you should point out that only the Scratch Team decides this and blocks accounts based on evidence not on the claims of a specific person. --

Done... :) At the first part, it mentions that not everyone can ban users and lists who can, and in each section it says who can ban people there.

Wiki banning

It says only bureaucrats can ban people, but it says here that WeirdF (who was never a bureaucrat [1]) blocked someone. Is the article incorrect?

Yeah we used to be able to ban people, but then the evil bureaucrats took our powers away >:(

For safety reasons - hey, if they were fussed about security, they'd take away JSOadmin's powers; that account isn't needed anymore. :P
Wish I could ban :3

What are you saying "why" to?
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 23:29, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
I think it's to the ban power.

Do you have any specific reason to want to ban?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 04:11, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
well, psychologically people want to have power. banning is a power. he is a person, so ∴ he wants more power.

Exactly :3 :3 :3 (This is so silly xD) (Don't worry, I was just making a joke about the "wish i could ban" ;))

Are you sure?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 04:37, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
*reads this discussion and the one you linked to* Wow that fails >.> Well I'm certainly not interested in any of that stuff now, and I hope I wasn't interested in it before either.

Wiki ban link

Should I include a link to Special:Log/block, the ban list for the wiki. There aren't any vandals there, but still...

Well, Shouldn't We Update The Forum Ban Page? Good Thing I Made An Account On May 9 To Test The Signup System. This Is It.. We Could Ask Someone To Ban It.

sure, why not?

It's the list of banned users. There is a reason mods and ST don't talk about banning people in public.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 05:18, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
hmmm... good point. idk.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 05:22, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
The most recent account on the ban list was a messup btw — people might get confused :S
And yeahhh since the user list on the Scratch forums is hidden, I don't think we should publicize the ban list here either.

The Scratch Wiki is not the place to discuss yours, or anyone else's ban. Please contact the Scratch team from the link at the bottom of this page.

Splitting muting into its own article?

I think it may be worth making a new article about muting specifically (and linking it from here in the See Also section or something), as it has now become a topic that is fairly notable on its own and comes with a lot of controversy, and it is also significantly different from bans in that it's automatic and much shorter term while bans are manual and require an appeals process.

Yes Support: Support! Mutes and Bans are two separate levels, although the former tends to be a light form of punishment. If you want, I can start working on that page. 20:48, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Possible Clarification on How Some Bans are Unappealable?

I have recently read the new cited source; on its own it seems confusing. The Wiki states that main accounts can be used to send appeals, whereas the article explicitly states that users with unappelable bans should not contact the Scratch Team at all to appeal. In addition, IP bans aren't mentioned to be appealable or unappealable. Perhaps another source via the forums/comments (from a Scratch Team member) should be added to clarify these two claims?
dhfbei8987 (talk | contribs)

From how I read the article, the bans of alternate accounts are unappealable, but the ban on the main account is appealable (though upon successful appeal on the main account they may unban the alts). Alternate accounts are just one specific case of unappealable bans, they can happen for other reasons. I do not know about IP bans and appeals, which is why I did not add anything about them in that section.
