Only relevant to:
Owner
TokenMaster
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.

Community Owners and TokenMasters can kick out or ban members who violate the community guidelines or behave in a toxic manner.

In the case of minor offences or annoyances, consider kicking the offender. For major violations of the community guidelines or repeated offences, you can use the ban option.

info
Banning or kicking a user on your Status contact list doesn't remove the contact. If you want to remove the user from your contact list, remove the contact or block the user.

The difference between a kick and a ban in Status Communities is that a kick is temporary, while a ban remains unless you unban the user.

When you kick a user from a community, they can request to join it again. When you ban the user, they can't search or see the community again, and can't request to join either. Community owners and TokenMasters can reverse the ban by inviting the user to the community again.

  • A user who has been kicked out of a community can ask to join the community again.
  • A user who has been banned can't see or search for the community. A banned user can only rejoin the community when you unban them and they request to join again.
  • Only community Owners can kick or ban TokenMasters.
  • Members receive a notification when they are kicked out but not when they are banned.
  • Users can see they have been kicked out or banned when they try to reaccess the community.
info
The community disappears from the user's navigation sidebar when they are kicked or banned.
