You have an appeal process available to you:
Members who wish to may fill out this form which will create a thread in the staff forums.
It is a one time use form that you cannot interact further with. The staff will collectively review and examine your appeal and reach a decision through general consensus. If your appeal is granted you will see your ban thread amended to read "Reinstated" or "Unbanned" as in this example.
You may be assessed a strike or two if you are reinstated.
If your appeal is denied, you will not be notified and nothing will be announced.
Here is a real example of a ban appeal we received that probably would not do your cause much good:
You are the perfect exemple of people who abuse of power , hell the system is so stupid bann me to your heart content i will create another email another account even changing my ip by phoning my internet provider.
THE only thing that will make me is nastier and someday i will retrieve you guys don care of i have to paid a plane ticket dont care if i will travel half the world.
I will retrieve you and pound you so much that my hand will be red and dont worry I am an ex-legionary killing is not a problem
(yes, it's real)
Read the Terms of Service , and the All Newbies Read This Before Posting thread, if it was a Chat Room incident read the chat rules as well.
If you do not find a ban notice posted in the 'Forum rules and strikes' section then it is possible that your username was deemed inappropriate.
Creating a new account will almost certainly mean you will not get your account reinstated; as multiple accounts are prohibited.
So think about what you want to say, but it is your appeal so do as you will.
If your account was banned but you cannot find a ban message, please examine your username. Inappropriate username accounts are banned without a public thread.
