Appeals Process
An explanation into the appeal process

  • You can create either an apology or dispute, you choose this when creating the appeal.
  • You cannot dispute a punishment because you feel the length was unjust, this must be done via a staff complaint instead.
  • You can only dispute a punishment once, if you still disagree after it was denied then you should make a staff complaint.
  • If you create an apology then you accept you broke the rules and are apologizing for your actions, in hope for your punishment to be reviewed.​
  • If you create a dispute then you feel you haven't broken the rules and want to dispute the legitimacy of the punishment.​
  • You must include the staff member that issued your punishment, you can find this information on your ban here.​
  • A warning can only be disputed, they will never be removed through apology.​
  • A dispute must contain sufficient evidence such as a video of the situation or a demo with the relevant tick provided.​
  • If you're forum banned and want to create an appeal please use this alternative link. The appeal is sent for approval before going public.​
Reviewing Appeals

  • An apology can be dealt with by the staff member who issued the punishment, up to 6 months.
