How can a user be banned?

The admin has 2 ways to ban a user:

Through Jobster > User Ban > All Users > Ban 

He will be redirected to Users Ban page where he should complete it as shown below.

2.Through Dashboard > Users > Ban > And completing the same field as we did in the first way. 

NOTE: The ‘’Violations Record” field is not Mandatory to complete when banning a user. However, it can also be user without need to ban someone. It can simply be taken into consideration as it were notes where you can write a user’s bad behavior. 

When a user is banned, he is redirect to withdrawal page (in case he has some money to withdrawal it) with access only to user settings and withdrawal pages
Besides the above mentioned ways, you can also see banned users in Dashboard > Users > Banned 

How to unban a user?

1.Also through Dashboard > Users > Unban (independently if the ban was temporarily or permanently)

2.Through Jobster > User Ban

2.1 All Users: Unban (independently if the ban was temporarily or permanently)

2.2 User Banned by Account: Unban (only if the user has been banned by account)

2.3 User Banned by IP: Unban ( only if the user has been by IP )

Whenever a user is banned, he receives a mail where is he informed that he has banned (the reason, the kind of ban and until when he is banned). 

Also, when a user has been unbanned, he receives an e-mail where he is informed of it.
