If you feel you have been wrongly punished, make an appeal on the appropriate ban forum on the site. Appeals may be denied.
** You may be unbanned based on amount of times you have been banned, severity of offence, number of previous violations, and quality of appeal submitted. If you feel a staff member has abused their position, please report to an S-Admin for further assistance with evidence. All players on the servers are responsible for knowing, understanding, and following these rules. Contact a staff member for more information if needed.
