I'm making this thread because I've noticed lately, ban appeals have been far too messy.
This thread will serve as a reference to all of those who are going to appeal a ban.
Some information for all types of appeal:
Make sure the title has "Ban Appeal" in it and your player name.
Put everything you need to say in one comment instead of a hundred.
Never say "I didn't do it" because 9.9 time out of 10 you did.
24 Hour Bans
If you have only a 24 hour ban, an appeal is normally pointless as you generally get auto unbanned before your
appeal has either been noticed or finished, then its just a waste of forum space. If you only have a 24 hour I recommend just waiting
it out instead of starting a thread that in the end will have been pointless.
Typically, if you have received a perm ban, it means you were banned for a major offence or for multiple offences after
already being banned before. If you are in the rare group of people who are given a "Perm until appeal" ban then here's some guidelines:
Don't say you didn't do it, because if you didn't then you wouldn't have been banned in the first place.
Don't ever blame it on a friend or a sibling. It's YOUR account, therefor it's YOUR responsibility for anything that happens to it.
If you are in the group of people that have a general ban i.e. Over 24 hours & not a permanent ban then this is for you.
When appealing, always use the format provided here:
[Format] Ban Appeals, Server reports
Make sure to use proper grammar and spelling so staff can understand your appeal.
Never include the following or anything similar:
"It was my friend/sibling"
"I love the server/the mod/Doctor Who"
"I donated/have an item in the mod"
"My friends know I didn't"
"pls pls pls pls"
