We begin rolling out a new set of features on Simracing.gp which fall under the banner “active driver management”. These are features which will allow admins to have greater control over managing attendance and who is racing in their communities.
The first feature in this collection of new tools is driver bans. Before today, the only option for removing drivers from a community was to do just that, remove them entirely. In many cases this was not only too extreme but also flawed as drivers could rejoin the community and sign up to events.
We listened to the community owners and have implemented a new tool which gives admins the option to add drivers to a ban list meaning they remain in the community but can’t sign up for events. This is perfect for when you need to give a driver a bit of time to chill out and calm down.
Some examples of where an owner may ban a driver include poor driving standards, not showing up to events, poor behaviour on and off track or even in some cases being too quick!. It’s up to you as admins how you use this tool but it’s designed to give admins more control over their communities.
I have made a short video explaining how to use the new Ban List system.
