As part of the Minetown Revamp, we are also revamping the way appeals are handled, as well as the length of bans imposed. Ban lengths are now broken down into category, by the type of offense committed.

You will also see staff members that are Mod and up handling ban appeals. This does not mean you may post in this section, unless:

1. You are posting an appeal, or
2. You are asked to contribute.

If you do post when you're not permitted to do so, you will be temporarily banned for 48 hours. There are no exceptions to this.
