If you are appealing or considering to appeal, please read all below. Assumptions about what we mean by something can become a big problem with an appeal. Why this Topic? Doing a single appeal takes time, talking via chat, replying and explaining stuff on the forums takes a lot of our time to deal with people's questions and sometimes their problematic behavior. Its the reason of this appeal tips topic, to undercut as many questions as possible that appeal applicants may have on our forums. Time we didn't have to spend to explain to every single individual how we work or why we doing things in a certain way, time we then can use to do actual research into the open appeals. When we see something that we didn't address yet here, we will add it. There are exceptions to this, mainly to our internal procedures and some of our info. 1. Be honest. Lying to an appeal admin will end up in the appeal being Instantly denied. Lets define lying: Factual lying. Intentionally omitting information (leaving out details that we would be interested in, or even directly asked for) Implying something else then the truth. Faking any form of evidence. Guessing about it. If you don't remember, SAY SO, better that then some that doesn't match what we found. This is often misunderstood. When we ask questions, we usually know the answers already. When answers mismatch with what we know, we investigate further and establish that you where lying or telling the truth. Any admin that does appeals has more then enough experience with countless people that lied to them, they really will find out. Don't dig yourself a hole you cant come out of, just tell the truth, its easier for both you and us. When we find out about just one lie, the appeal is already denied. A good portion of denied appeals is just about this, we found a lie. 2. Be straightforward. If the admin thinks you are hiding something, that will have a negative impact on your appeal. When questions are asked, answer them to the fullest of your knowledge. Even if you think its not relevant. Admins do NOT have the time to try to dig out every snippet of some information they want. Explain it to the closest detail you know, and tell everything. Do not assume anything, TELL it.
