Comment(by apeatling):

 A few things for next time, hopefully this will help:

 Functions like bp_group_member_is_banned() should always echo. Each of
 those functions should have a get_() function
 bp_get_group_member_is_banned() that will always return.

 if ( !$id ) will validate false on zero values. No need for ( !$id || $id
 == 0 )

 The home template can be bypassed by adding <?php load_template(
 TEMPLATEPATH . '/index.php' ) ?> to that file in the child theme.

 Templates should always try and avoid using curly braces. Stick to the
 <?php if ( ) : else : endif; ?> as it's less daunting and easier to follow
 for non-programmers.

 Don't invoke actions in the template - so bp_core_delete_existing_avatar()
 shouldn't be called in the template. The URL should be checked in a screen
 function in the plugin, then that function run if needed.

 Translation functions won't work with variables. They might work at run-
 time, however to translate the application a script runs and pulls out the
 translation text from the files. If that translation text is a variable
 then this cannot happen, as the script is not running and that value is
 obviously varies.

 Hope that stuff helps, thanks for the patch.
