Are suspended users able to edit their profiles, or are they prohibited from doing so?


Yes and no. I just tested it with my sock puppet. I suspended it 'for science', and now it gets a 404 when trying to open the 'Edit profile and settings' tab on that site (this has been reported as a bug here):

However, it's possible to edit another profile on the network and have its changes apply everywhere, thereby bypassing this restriction. (This deleted answer which I discovered later, after @Martin linked to the question, mentions it as well.) So this could be considered another , though it's not particularly harmful.

  • It doesn't make much difference - the links and all are still disabled. And any content that might be offensive would be offensive all over SE, and can be removed elsewhere. – muru Aug 14 '19 at 5:32
  • Out of curiosity, what exactly did you do to get suspended? – Stormblessed Aug 14 '19 at 5:33

    @Stormblessed His test account got suspended instead, for science. – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Aug 14 '19 at 5:33

    @Sonic but I'm curious what he did to get that account suspended for science. – Stormblessed Aug 14 '19 at 5:34

    @Stormblessed He himself is a moderator there; he suspended his own test account. – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Aug 14 '19 at 5:34

    Worth noting that the 404 page behavior is considered a bug, but its fix has been delayed. – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Aug 14 '19 at 5:35
  • @Sonic ah-hah! Mod powers are nice. – Stormblessed Aug 14 '19 at 5:35
  • @Sonic oops I messed up: I edited in grace period what I meant to do, but didn't undo the bad part. – Stormblessed Aug 14 '19 at 5:38
