Description

5 years ago
When banning a user, an administrator should be able to specify a reason. The administrator should be able to choose from a list of violations or choose "Other".

This message could, for example, be provided in the list of banned users or provided to the user to explain why he was banned.

We have a "reason" field in the user ban interface. Do we need a select list of violations or is the free-form text field enough?

It would be nice to have a list, but it's not strictly necessary.

You know what? I sat down to come up with a list and realized there are too many potential nuances. For now, let's just leave it free-form.
My experience as an admin on Wikipedia: Firefox does a good job to propose past messages with its own form cache, and this acts as a list.

So a list is really not a requirement for now.
