Resolution Methods

  • Good Behavior Request - You may request an administrator review your forum behavior after being warned. If you are deemed to have exhibited good behavior, your warning points will be reset to zero (0). You can only request this after being warned, you have permanent warning points and it has been at least 30 days since being warned.
  • Ban Appeal - A ban appeal is an admission of guilt. You agree that you violated the rules and requesting the administrator reconsider their decision. You must explain why you deserve another chance and what you will do to prevent yourself from violating the rules again. If you believe that the staff member was wrong to ban you, you should post a staff complaint.
  • Staff Complaint - If you believe you were wrongfully banned, you can post a staff complaint against the staff member who banned you, or gave you the warning points. You may not post a staff complaint if you have been indefinitely community banned.

 

Unbans & Ban Overturns

  • If you have been unbanned or have had your ban overturned, your content will be moderated for the next 30 days. In the case of an overturned indefinite community ban, your content is moderated indefinitely.

 

Note: These rules may be updated without notice.
