Now on chat kicking just cuts connection from chat and the user can rejoin right away and bans are now timed should we use kicking as a warning, it will show the user we mean business when moderating chat. The other option is it is used as the second warning. I.E. 1st warning: the user is told on chat. 2nd warning: The user is kicked. 3rd warning: the user is banned --User:Brick bobby User talk: Brick bobby 18:12, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Woot, chat update :D!
No matter what happens with kicks and bans, please remember that both should only be used to prevent disruption. Kicks should happen /much/ more often than bans now that there is that option, so if someone is being disruptive and not listening to a warning then kicking would be in order. After that, short bans (one day I'd say) would be in order for most things.
FYI, CheckUsers can now see who connects to chat from what IP address in Special:Log/chatconnect. This has a few privacy issues since the log is permenant, but it will prevent lots of chat disruption. If someone is joining chat with multiple accounts now, contact a CheckUser. ajr 18:25, May 7, 2012 (UTC)
Umm, what happens if I click that link? Is it just a form which is safe to click, or is it a list of everyone's IPs? NightblazeSaber 23:33, May 7, 2012 (UTC)
List of everyone's IP when they join chat essentially. I don't understand why they did that rather than make it a check user-able action, but the list will be rather helpful for preventing repeat trolling. ajr 23:46, May 7, 2012 (UTC)
That's totally awesome that they added that CheckUser thing. Also, I would support your idea, BB (if we're supposed to be voting...) Drewlzoo
