[Detailed Theory] Successfully Appealing an Offence

Recommended Posts

Hello members of Roat Pkz, I've seen many cases of appeals not getting accepted due to players not filling out the form and not giving the right information on the appeal or even having the right positive attitude when filling out the appeal information.. I'm going to somewhat give you some guidance on how to get your successfully appeal your wrongdoings if they're "appealable"..

 

I'm going to write a scenario below that many players that I've experienced seem to go through..

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

You log in on Roat Pkz  and your friend tells you to come to the duel arena so he could show you what he just won. You're interested so you decided to teleport to the Duel Arena and you meet your friend. Your friend tells you that he doesn't have enough room in his bank for the items or the coins that he may have won, so he asked you can you hold it for him temporarily until he has enough room in his bank to hold his winnings.. Being the good friend that you are you decide to hold some of his winnings. Now knowing that this is just a MMPORG and that everything is pixelated, you do have those members who value pixels over friendship any day of the week. So you end the talk with your friend and you log off for the day to conduct business in RL (Real life). You attempt to log into Roat  Pkz the next day and you see that your account has been disabled. Your "friend" thought you scammed him because you were actually busy with your business in your real world. But you don't know that,  At this moment your feelings are "Why the hell am I banned"? and "Who did this"?.. Or something along those lines, players are different.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

End of scenario.

 

Now most people will understand that you are currently raging in RL and confused on why you're banned. But, the one thing you must control is your attitude during the whole appealing process.  They're many staff members on Roat Pkz and I'm sure most of them didn't know that you were banned. Due to non-communication within the chain of command.  So don't assume that the staff member that chooses to deal with your case knows your situation as he is just doing his/her duty as staff member. If you approach the situation with the wrong attitude your whole mission to get unbanned will be a lot more difficult. Staff are trained to deal with all types of attitudes with appeals, they know the player is upset. But you (The appealer) must know that your actions can slow down the process or speed up the process so you may continue to play on Roat Pkz depending on your situation.

When filling out the appealing form, fill it out with a great attitude and be as cooperative and patient as possible.

 

Now on to the next, IF you are truly innocent of the punishment you have received, in this particular situation you must provide some sufficient proof of your innocence. This is where your integrity comes into play, be completely honest when you're doing this process as the truth will eventually come out. But in this situation you are innocent, so if you don't actually have any proof,  the staff who's dealing with this case would contact the person who banned you, and ask for the evidence that he had to ban the accused scammer. If that doesn't suffice, then that's where chat logs come into play. Now this process gets a little more deeper and the time may expand a little.

When appealing a process be completely honest, provide good proof, and if proof isn't available ask for an alternative.

 

One small thing that most players forget is to always keep good grammar when writing your appeal. You are mad so you don't care how your grammar looks, you're just trying to get your point across that you're banned for no reason. Remember calm down and breathe, and type your appeal legibly so any staff member can understand it.

 

Now let's continue on with this particular situation. The staff member dealing with your case finally has the chat logs that was said on that specific day and time. He reviews them and he understands that it was an agreement between you and your "friend". After he finds that, he then confronts the person who reported you for scamming. (Now most staff members won't go this far, but some good ones will) and ask him did he know that he was busy in RL? The reporter says yeah he knew but he didn't know that he was going to be gone for that long. To end this scenario with a conclusion, the good staff member explains to the reporter that his "friend" that he gave his winnings too was actually busy and had no intentions of taking any of it. The reporter than realizes that he had made a mistake and ask the staff member to unban the accused scammer..

 

 

The good friend got unbanned, and the reporter got his winnings back from him. The process may have took some time but the situation was handled very professionally by the accused scammer.

 

In any instance that you are banned or muted, etc. If you would like to have a chance of getting un-punished then you must be able to have resilience and be able to have the traits of a great attitude, patience, and understanding. With the addition of having some good grammar so that staff member can understand your plead.  If you can follow those simply traits then your appeal will most likely be approved and your punishment will be revoked. Of-course depending on your situation.

 

Now this is just theory that you can go by when going through the appealing process. You do not have to follow this exact theory, it's a option that you can come too when you don't know where else to go. I would like to thank anyone who have read through this theory and cheers to them for many years of success.

Nice guide, will help tons of players :D . Especially the ones that flame people calling them cunts and then realizing why they were muted/banned in the first place.

Great guide, you should have kept it short and simple because, if someone's been banned and they believe it's for no reason at all, they simply won't have the patience to read all of this before making an appeal.

Patience is a virtue young one. But they're others who want a quick response, if they do they can always contact me.

If they can't be bothered to use the correct format, trust me they won't have the patience to read all of that. Personally I think it's worth reading as it could help get them unbanned/unmuted, but I doubt anyone whose been punished without knowing the reason yet will.

This is just an example of the lazy bastards: http://prntscr.com/8adgrk

Cool guide. But honestly, if people just followed the format correctly the first time they'd have a higher chance of getting accepted. (depending on situation ofc)
