Avatar Overlays For The Damned Banned

I just saw a “robo-post” (so the explanation went) and clicked on his it’s name for other posts, and up came an unexpected notice that he it was banned. In the old forum, there was a darkened overlay on ALL banned-posters’ posts, to show a poster’s banned status. That was annoying as it was hard to read ANY of those posts, even ones that did not stray beyond the rules.

There isn’t any just visual status now. If there are plans to do such, how about an overlay only on the avatar? Here are a couple of examples that came to mind, beyond simple darkening. (The below .PNG uses transparency for ease of application and were put over the default avatar for sizing.)

Thanks! Such things don’t echo high on the Ritcher scale, but they keep

bouncing around the caverns of my mind .

Some more ideas (only on the avatars again) … angled “banned” stamp with stamp-edges showing /OR/ an “unperson” stamp in passport style (from bottom of this picture) /OR/ a Deathstar circle stamp w stars background /OR/ an Empire stamp (with Empire text):

(The examples above are from image searches & would need reworking to make them fit OriginalTrilogy forum motif.)

I must confess I had a good chuckle over the Orwell one. That might cause misconceptions about the site though. 😉

It was suggested a while back all new users have a generic Stormtrooper helmet avatar. A variation of that could work for those who are banned.
