Ban Appeals Format Write the following out completely on your ban appeal: Please copy the questions into a new thread, and answer them. (Important!! Include the questions) It's not only the questions you need, you need the "username, date, timebanned" part too! EVERYTHING between the lines must be copy-pasted, REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THE QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!! Username: Date: Time banned (If known & timezone): 1. Reason for ban? (If known) 2. Who banned you? (If known) 3. Were you online or offline when you were banned? 4. What were you doing at the time? (If online) 5. Were there any players with a similar name? (If noticed) 6. Why should we un-ban you? 7. What will you do next time to prevent this from happening again? 8. What message is displayed when you try to log into the server? 9. Were there any witnesses to this who can testify? 10. Picture of when you attempt to login to AC. TIPS Be HONEST Be honest in your answers and about what has occurred. Being truthful and sincere will increase your chances of being un-banned. If you answer untruthfully and get found out your appeal will be denied. Be PATIENT This is very important, constant advertising of your appeal and spamming staff will not have your appeal looked at any sooner. %90 of the time you will be told to wait for the person who banned you to come forward and claim your appeal. Be RESPECTFUL Being respectful to staff will get you a lot further with your appeal then being rude. Keep your cool and deal with the situation maturely. Be Responsible Take responsibility of your actions. If you broke a rule don't blame it on someone else or make up an excuse. Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse take ownership of what you have done. If you show maturity and show that you will follow the rules your chances of being pardoned are much higher. Repeat offenders If your appeal is successful don't break the rules again, read the rules. If you are a repeat offender your ban appeals will most likely be denied. Learn from your mistakes. Temporary Bans If you have been temp banned for 2 days or less do not make an appeal. Wait out your ban time. The reason I say 2 days is because if you don't know who banned you, we tell you to wait 48 hours for the banner to claim the ban and you will be unbanned. If you're banned for 2 days or less to start with, there's no point. BOTTOM LINE. NO BAN APPEALS FOR TEMP BANS OF 2 DAYS OR UNDER. Xray = Perm Ban It has been said many times to not xray and there is no chance of you coming back if you are banned for that reason. If you make a ban appeal about xray it will be locked. If you continue you will be banned from the forums. Thanks to our new xray finder plugin we find you xrays easily now. There are no excuses for xraying now. All of you know the rules so follow them. Just remember, Xray = Perm Ban (This applies to ALL hacks) DO NOT Post On Ban Appeals As the Title suggests DO NOT post on ban appeals, unless you have new or pertinent information DIRECTLY related to the appeal. Reason? When I read a ban I want to get to the bottom of it as soon as possible. This goes for other staff as well, if it's not your ban, leave it alone unless you have proof or questions that could over rule the ban. Thanks.
