    SO NOW THAT I AM UNBANNED, there is a small suggestion I would like to make.

    The other day, I made a post that got me banned for three days. No biggie. Thing is, I found it to be a completely unfair ban because it was an honest mistake, and was not something on purpose. I wanted to try appealing it, but, being banned from the forums, I had absolutely no way to contact any staff member on the forum about it. So, being unfairly banned because of an honest mistake, I had to wait three days just so I can talk it over and get my warning percentage removed with someone that can handle this. And no, I tried the email to the admin link that was available and never got a response.

    What my suggestion is, is that if you're banned, you can have a link that you can discuss with someone the ban you got, and if circumstances are fair, have the ban reversed.

    You were banned for 3 days and its over now. Let it go.

    Alternatively, permabans can be appealed at the IRC...IIRC. :unsure:

    But I still walk away with a 10% warning level. That I shouldn't have because of the fact it was an honest mistake.

    I do read forum rules and I do abide by them. I don't do stupid things like link to roms or whatever.

    I agree on that link thing. Some mods don't know how to handle their power.

    I'm not debating it in the open, I'm stating what happened, but I will now be taking it to a Global Mod. But it'd be nice if there was some kind of system to message someone even if you're in the middle of a ban.

    Just jump onto IRC if you want to talk to a mod, I am usually online as is Costello, TwinRetro, Fix94 and a few others.

    Yeah. I tried that, but never got a response.

    Edit: Actually, I'll take this part with a Global Mod too. No point in naming this mod because bad things may happen.

    There's a copy of that email in my sent folder at the moment. Unless it was blocked?

    Suggestion noted, I am discussing it with Costello as we speak. But to avoid people crying over past suspensions etc I will close this thread now.
