At the moment I'm seeing an option to remove members from a group.

If a user is removed and keeps rejoining the group you might want to consider:
- asking the person nicely not to rejoin
- switching to invite only or approval-based memberships temporarily,
- if the situation persists contact a moderator to enforce this.

it's not ideal but it's a solution at least? I hope it doesn't come to that.

- This will definitely not always work.
- I'd rather not make a group invite only or approval only, and the theoretical member could rejoin easily after that
- I guess, but eh.
I still think implementing a "ban user from group" feature would be good.

I can easily see why this may be a need for a ban/block function, especially for Stealphie in particular considering they own a particular group that's sure to attract some less than savory types. I get why the hesitance to add such a feature might be there in the case of less inherently controversial groups, but I don't really want one of the more pleasant groups I'm in to turn into a debate club by people who just want to be assholes.

If there is a black list applied to the group, it is really good.
Those who reapply after rejection, is definitely a harassment

Also, can the messages, group membership request from xxxxxx, be moved back to notification, instead of Conversations?? those messages are not really conversation I believe
There is actually no scope for discussion there. (I've got about 10 messages for applying a day, so many)

  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    @BigOnYa Godreborn sadly went crazy. I didn't spoke a lot with him, but on Discord he messaged me for some weeks before he left. Not sure if I may share his personal situation, but honestly it's nothing he didn't made clear over here. I'll try to be brief: He was having a bad time due to bipolarity. And he was messaging me that he wasn't feeling good emotionally speaking.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Then something happened between Chary and him, again, nothing he didn't made publicly already, but if curious you should check his last threads.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Then, after that last thread, sone users began to mock him. I tried to mock him because he was giving me over 80 notifications per day about his "jokes", but I just stopped replying. I think he took personal the whole situation of me not replying to his same jokes repeated over and over and his personal thingy with Chary was the drop that spilled the glass or whatever. So he got banned fir his behavior towards Chary or something.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Really can't tell much as the last thing he wrote me via Discord was: "you hurt me really bad with your last joke" (He joked I sucked hus BaNaNa all day and I told him that Chary wouldn't even touch him with her bat whilst his mom sucked my BaNaNa every night) and I think he took it really personal. Mind you, that was my first response after 3 months of constant "Juan sucks my BaNaNa" jokes every day.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Oh yeah forgot about the entire Chary thing lol
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    And then he went even crazier and began blaming everyone for his situation (be aware that he's bipolar and I personally live with a bipolar person) so I immediately knew something was gonna get awfully wrong, even Flame and I talked a bit about that, and I warned Flame something like this would happen soon.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    But yeah, basically that... Godreborn couldn't take a joke when he was the one that started it all. Again... not justifying my one joke... but it kinda got me tired. Hehe. So... there...
