Tip about shadow-banning from Usagiboy7

"I just want to explain further how the system works, because there are balances built in to prevent abuse. A very select few moderators have the ability to apply a temporary ban."

"Only a temporary ban.

"Any bans that become permanent are put into place by staff. All temporary bans are reviewed by staff, who are very thorough. If staff disagree with a temporary ban, they reinstate the account.

"So all bans that have taken place and stuck have been approved by staff. If staff disagree with a temporary ban, that moderator is contacted and the situation reviewed with them.

"If a moderator is found to be abusing their ability, they are stripped of their ring."

~ Usagiboy7

Hope this helped.

Summary: All bans that stick are staff bans. If you see moderator abuse happening, please send it to staff at Abuse@duolingo.com right away. Moderators do not receive nor process those emails. Staff have a vested interest in preventing abuse. It would negatively affect their business.

Had Usagi wanted that on the boards I imagine it would have been posted to the boards in the first place.

It was an activity stream event, but I managed to get the link:

[Link removed to remain respectful]

If those who participated in that stream convo give me permission here, I will re add it.

OK, I have a question and a very true statement.

  • The question: How do you get the links to the "events"? TELL ME YOUR SECRET. (XD lol)
  • The very true statement: That is awesome.

Is this your main account or your "drop" account? ;). I asked because your post peeked my curiosity.
