Is there a list of Post statuses?

I just noticed somebody with "Dream Suspended", but they don't seem to be actually suspended?

how can someone get banned? and if they're banned why can they still post? seems somewhat silly to me...why ban someone if they can still participate. just curious, i've tried searching for the answer ever since i started on this forum but have yet to find the answer, so thought i'd finally ask. thanks!

Forum members can get suspended if they violate the forum rules.

A ban is a lifetime suspension.

If someone is banned, they can no longer post.



If someone is dream suspended, they just can't post in their dreams.

You may be reading older threads in which banned members have posted in before their ban.

Yes, but talking about banned and suspended members is frowned upon 'round these parts.
