As far as I know, site moderators can give at most a month long review ban manually via their tools.

Is this possible somehow to give a longer review ban?

    I'm sure it's possible. – Taryn May 19 '15 at 16:26

    "I think, sometimes it could be needed to give a longer time" You must surely have an exact example? Otherwise is this just a "maybe we'll need it one day" question? – James May 19 '15 at 16:49

    @peterh using different wording, you can make this a neutral support question e.g. simple "Is it possible to have a review ban longer than a month?" without throwing CM's and personal opinions into this (which I believe is why you get so many downvotes). I considered editing myself, but that would radically change this question so letting you decide. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard May 19 '15 at 20:15
  • @ShadowWizard No problem, I intended to make exactly a neutral support question. Do it - and thank you very much. – peterh - Reinstate Monica May 19 '15 at 20:57

Is it theoretically possible? Sure. It's just a date field in a database table, we could set it to December 31, 9999 if there was a need for that.

So far, there hasn't been a pressing need for that. I would strongly encourage you to avoid creating one.

  • Right - in most cases, it would be more expedient to just suspend the poor reviewer entirely. – Shog9 May 19 '15 at 17:21

    Can a moderator "extend" existing review ban while it's still active? That would pretty much give the OP what he's asking for, no? – Shadow 10 Years Wizard May 19 '15 at 21:00

    it sounds like you have a Y9999 problem – gnat May 19 '15 at 21:51
  • As implied, the end-date is stored - so it could be kept perpetually 30 days out. @Sha – Shog9 May 19 '15 at 21:56
