Ban Appeal Format Update: Electric Boogaloo

Postby bobbahbrown » Sat Aug 10, 2019 6:59 pm #507085

Hello,

I return again with an updated format for the ban appeals templates. The templates themselves can be seen below, as I recommend them, and I have included the raw post in the post following.

What does this accomplish?
This updated format serves to ensure that critical information is provided (namely correct BYOND accounts and ban reasons), as well as to reduce user error by providing more description of what each part should include where necessary.
I feel using codeblocks will improve end-user experience when writing appeals to ensure they don't include "post contents", or other formatting from the existing template. It also allows including formatting which should improve readability of the final appeal.




Please use one of the following templates when posting a ban appeal:
Copy these templates into your post. Replace the portions surrounded with <angle brackets> to complete your appeal.

SS13 Server Ban Template
Post Title/Subject:
Code: Select all
[GAME] [<Admin Name>] <Player Name>

Post Contents:
Code: Select all
[b]BYOND Account:[/b] <BYOND account>

[b]Ban Type:[/b] <Server/Role[s]/OOC/etc>
[b]Ban Length:[/b] <Permanent, 5 days, etc>
[b]Ban Reason:[/b] <Copy this from the server. If this is a server ban, attempt to connect. If it is not a server ban, view your notes with "View Admin Remarks" button under OOC tab in-game. An image is suitable, but do **not** paraphrase or otherwise modify the reason.>
[b]Time Ban Was Placed:[/b] <Try to get this from the server when you get the ban reason. If it was a note, the note has a timestamp. If it was a server ban, it will also have a timestamp. Both of these times are in UTC.>
[b]Server You Were Playing on When Banned:[/b] <Server name, eg, Bagil/Sybil/Terry/Event Hall>
[b]Round ID in Which Ban Was Placed:[/b] <Round ID, should be present in ban reason from server. Can be excluded if it cannot be found. Example: 101235>

[b]Why You Think You Should Be Unbanned:[/b] <Why should you get this opportunity to return, what value do you bring back to the community? Was your ban unfair? Justify it.>
[b]References of Good Conduct:[/b] <If serverbanned and **especially** if permabanned, have you played on other servers during the time you were banned? Name them here, in many cases good references of conduct and character can be crucial to a successful appeal. Otherwise, feel free to remove this portion.>

Post Contents:
Code: Select all
[b]Discord Username:[/b] <Discord username ***INCLUDING DISCRIMINATOR*** -- like Example#0001 or Test#1234>

[b]Banning Admin:[/b] <If you know who you were banned by, put it here. Otherwise, feel free to remove this portion.>
[b]Ban Reason:[/b] <If you know the reason why you were banned, summarize it here. Ideally have this provided to you by someone who can see it in the audit log on the discord server. Otherwise, feel free to remove this portion.>

I think this is very helpful and will make formatting the posts to be legible a lot easier. I also like the reference of good conduct section you've added.

said and done, ban appeal formats have been updated with minor changes (as in this Instead Of This Cause It Hurt Our Soul)
thank you very much for this contribution!
