Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.

You can lose your Status Community membership for different reasons. For example, a token-gated community can change the token requirements to join, or your behaviour breaks the community rules.

The community owner can permanently ban your account if you break the community rules. Respect the community rules and members, and don't spam people or promote scams or deceptive practices.

  • If you lose access to a community, you must request to join the community again.
  • For token-gated communities, you should hold the token requirements at all times.
  • When you lose access to a community, it does show up under the
    Joined
    tab on your Communities page.
  • In the notifications centre, your Membership notifications show when you have lost access to a community. You don't receive a notification when you're banned from a community.
info
Community Owners control who has access to their communities. Status can't kick you out or ban you from a community. Likewise, Status can't grant you access to a community or override the community owner's actions.

There are four reasons:
