    So I was wondering weather or not members who have not been banned could fill out and submit a ban appeal turns out you can

    lanekids40 - Ban Appeal

    so I was wondering if a new forum group could be made like supermod and helper but they wouldn't be staff and it would say "banned" because as someone who has never been banned I shouldn't be able to submit it and like staff applications you would need to meet some requirements to submit it. For example the "banned" tag .

    This wouldn't really work without a link between forums and in-game, and accessing ban information via forums is [probably] not the easiest thing to do. I think the staff would rather take the time to auto-deny ban appeals with no validity rather than the techs spending time developing a new link. They've got more important things to be doing. I'm a little more open about forum bans however, perhaps a bot or something of the sort could auto-deny invalid ban appeals? Just my two cents.

    Troll appeals are, fortunately, few and far between. This seems to be a scenario in which the effort required outweighs the benefit of it. Sure, it'd be an alright feature, but is there really reason to implement it ahead of other, more important features. Why cross a bridge before we come to it? There's already verification for submitting one regardless.

    There's no need for this, we can simply delete the thread and give the player warning points.

    The way ban appeals work, threads and messages on ban appeals are not visible to normal users until approved by a Supermod or higher. It takes 5 seconds or less to delete troll appeals using this system, meaning it works perfectly fine as it is already.

    u could have asked a staff member about this u know
    would have been easier rather than going through the trouble of making a fake ban appeal to test it out and then with the staff having to delete the thread

    I disagree with this. Techs have much more important things to do and spending hours coding something for banned players (people that aren't even allowed to play anymore) shouldn't be anywhere near the top of the priority list on the list of things to do.

    This suggestion has been denied, as the level-of-effort required to fix it outweighs the benefits. Thank you for making a suggestion, however, and please do not let this discourage you from making further (beneficial) suggestions.
