    As of now, any player that's banned by a mod can only be unbanned by said mod, and this is bad. Very bad.

    Why's this bad?

    - It gives one single moderator too much power
    Reasoning: The fate of your account will purely be depended on the moderator, and if he says no, that's a no

    - The mod that banned the player may not always be available
    Example: One player once told me that they sent a ban appeal, and the moderator happened to be on vacation, delaying his appeal application for days (About two weeks when it could just be a day or two)

    - Unfair choices
    Lag happens and some players may appear flying to the mod and they get banned (It's a visual glitch), let's say this gets unbanned,they are on their last chance even when it's a visual

    What could the moderations be changed to then?

    The appeal should be visible for every mod, and is no longer depending on one single mod but multiple mods
    The app would be rejected if it receives 3 denial, accepted if it receives 3 approval, and to make this process faster I think giving each app a one week voting period would be good. When the voting didn't meet 3 on either side and the time runs out, it takes the side with more votes or have the app be returned for tying


    Personally I do really find the "Only can be unbanned by person that banned you" principle is a very lazy solution from the server and if a mod doesn't like a certain someone, they are fucked
     
    Klepto and Ninja_VK like this.

    solution: Don't get banned

    Although yeah it sucks your ban depends on a single mod.
    Like you might have finally done making a ban appeal and the mod that banned you might have quit.(LOL)

    While we can't just flat out tell you how our system works just know the Moderators work together. We are also volunteers.

    As for lag or visual bugs, I can tell you for all but maybe four or five people flying ever don't just fly 50 blocks in the air it is extremely obvious when someone is cheating, especially when they go across the ocean at 80 blocks a second. Even if we do get it wrong, we admit it and it doesn't count against the player.

    Edit: Also the moderators work as a team. It isn't one persons decision usually. While one person is in charge of an appeal, they aren't the only person who makes decisions on it.

    This simply just gets passed on to another mod.

    Except to claim this you would need some proof and in which case there probably is more to the story than you know anyway.

    Pretty sure mod use a ticket system that make staff aware of a situation but no-one want to deal with others decisions, that can be abused by chosing who you want to talk to, and that mod will have a lot of work.
