How Do I Remove or Ban a Member From My Mighty Network?

A Host can remove or ban a member at any time. To remove or ban a member, you need to first navigate to the member's profile page when you're on the web. Click on the three-dot menu in the lower right corner > More and select the option that says "Remove from Network."

From there you'll see two options: Remove This Member and Ban This Member.

If the Global Member feature is not on for the Mighty Network, you can also remove or ban a member from the Member List by going to Network Settings > Members > Member List.

Remove a Member From Your Network

If you choose to remove a member, this will only remove their membership, not their contributions or posts. They can always re-join in the future.

When a removed member returns, their previous posts will have been saved as well as their Profile introduction, "About You", Saved Drafts, followed members and their chat messages.

They will lose their Member Category, any Saved Posts, and access to Spaces (unless they come in on a Plan that offers them access to the same Spaces).

Remove a Member From a Space

For Public, Private, or Secret Spaces:

  1. Navigate to the Member List of the Space.
  2. Find the member you want to remove, hover over their name, and click the three-dot menu.
  3. Select "More" and then choose "Remove from Space".

For Plan Access:

  • Simply removing a member from a Plan Access Space does not affect their access; they will still be part of the Space.
  • To completely remove their access, you need to remove them from the Plan:
  1. Go to the plan's "Members" tab. 
  2. Hover over the name of the member you want to remove, click the three-dot menu, then select "More" and "Remove from Plan".
  3. You will have the option to remove the member immediately or at the end of their current billing period.

Ban a Member From Your Network

Selecting the option to ban a member will permanently ban them and remove all of their content and activity from your Mighty Network. They cannot re-join with the same email address.

Please note that you will not retain information within your Network regarding removed or banned members. As such, we encourage you to regularly back up your member data in the best ways and systems for you to keep track of members who have been banned or removed.

After Removal or Ban

When a member is removed or banned, they are not notified. They'll only realize they've been removed or banned if they try to log back in:

When a member is removed from a Secret Network, they need an invitation from the Host again to rejoin the Mighty Network. Additionally, a member removed from a Private Network must Request to Join the Mighty Network again.

Table of Contents' Progress is retained if a removed member rejoins the same Space that contains the Table of Contents with the same login information.
