Ban message appears to let you know when/if you’ve been channel banned
If you have been banned from using chat in a particular channel, you will now be shown a banner alerting you to your status when you attempt to chat. If you were banned at any point BEFORE this feature was introduced, you will see this message when you attempt to chat. Thus, this is not just for new bans.
Channel bans can only be lifted by the channel owner or moderator.
Channel Owners and Moderators: Your banned user list only shows up to 100 banned users. Thus, if you’ve banned more than that number of users, you will not be able to grab a whole list.
