    taking away the ability for Permanent Bans for chan admins

    I have run into a problem and maybe someone could help. I'm trying to prevent permanent bans by Channel Admins. I feel its best left to Server Administrators to decide if a person is permanently banned. However, I do see the need where a Channel Admin would need to ban a person but i can also see where channel Admins can be ban happy or ban someone from the server simply because that person doesn't fit into the crowd which isn't a valid reason to ban. It seems though that when a Channel Admin bans the default is 0 which means permanent, I want to take this "0" or "permanent" away from Channel Admins and as stated leave it to the Server Admin to decide if a person should be permanently banned from the server. I wish their was an option for called "Ban from Channel" for Channel Admins this way the person can ban from the room but not from server. Anyway my question is is their anyway to remove the permanent ban away from the Channel Admins, in other words when they go to ban someone "0" or "permanent" isn't a valid option for them? So far the only way I know remedy the situation is to take away the ability to ban and the Channel Admins will have to password protect the room and kick the user as a method of banning. Actually now that i think of it an option to "ban from channel" this would definitely compliment the "kick from channel" that all admins currently have. I just hope an option to turn off "ban" which bans from server sometime soon but not "ban from channel" if it is added.

    There is no ban from channel option, although it's not a bad idea.

    The permission controlling ban times is i_client_ban_max_bantime. Set to -1 for permanent, any other value is probably seconds.

    Any help on this? It's a nonsense to have the power for permaban but not for banning from the own channel, same with kicks.

    I believe that if you set the time limit in channel admin group then they will not be able to permaban.
