Player Ban Won't Work [URGENT]

Player.ban doesn’t seem to work, I don’t get kicked out of the game. It prints in the console: Writing cfg/banned_user.cfg. and that’s it. I’m using my custom admin mod I made. I’m using it properly - v:Ban([time], [reason]) but still to no avail. How do I fix this? Thanks. (Also note I can’t change it to sandbox and test it because the adminmod hooks on to the cl_init.lua using netlib), I can’t post this myself because I was banned from facepunch for shitty posts (lol)

ban doesn’t kick

kick them after you ban them

ply:Kick( reason )
