    FAQ about bans + Steps for ban appeal

    Post  thek826 on Sun Sep 11, 2011 2:07 am

    If you were banned, here are some steps you should take:

    Step 1: Were you really banned? If you are banned, it will ALWAYS give you a message, "You were banned by [insert moderator/admin name here]. Reason: [Insert reason here]"
    Step2: Are you actually signed into minecraft.net? The normal launcher's way of logging you in is really crappy unfortunately, and often takes 2-15 tries to log in to minecraft.net If you click on "Play offline" you will ALWAYS get this message:
    "You were banned. Reason: Undefined"
    Step 3: If you are signed in properly, then post a topic here on Ban Appeal.
    Step 4: Post your IGN, name of moderator who banned you, and reason for banning
    Step 5: BEG BEG BEG BEG BEG BEG
    Step 6: Wait for a moderator to approve or decline your ban appeal

    Still have questions? Post a reply and I'll be happy to answer them! Very Happy

    FAQ about bans

    Post  thek826 on Sun Sep 11, 2011 2:14 am

    Q:I got a Java error message, was I banned?
    A: No

    Q: I keep getting errors that aren't Java messages that say stuff like: "You are already logged in!" Or "End of Stream". Was I banned
    A:NO you will get the message: "You were banned by [insert moderator/admin name here]. Reason: [Insert reason here]" if you are banned! You are likely lagging out because you have an internet browser open, and if you don't know what a browser is, then GOD HELP YOU because your using one right now!

    Q: How do I know if I was unbanned?
    A: A moderator will approve your ban appeal on the forums by replying with "Approved."

    Q: I was banned for no rea--
    A: NO YOU WEREN'T! The staff has reasons for banning people! If you don't know why you were banned, just say, "I'd like to know why I was banned" in your ban appeal!

    Q: What is griefing? I was banned for griefing!
    A: Destroying some else's blocks without permission from the owner of that block/a staff member
