Guide to the Tribunal
« on: February 19, 2011, 05:49:38 PM »
The Tribunal is a forum where you can appeal infractions that you feel are unjustified.

To Start an Appeal Against a Moderation Action
– Create a thread in the forum. Try to include the warning given to you and who gave it to you.
– Once the appeal has been posted, the case will begin.
– The Tribunes will decide whether or not to reverse your infraction, partially reverse it, or increase it.
– Once a decision has been reached, we will inform you of our decision and close the appeal.
– The person making an appeal can close the case at any point.

Guidelines
Don't be rude
If you're rude, we won't review your case and you'll end up getting an even worse infraction. Simple as that.
Post in your own thread/s
Do not post in any threads or appeals apart from your own. Any posts found in any thread (with the exception of this thread) that are not made by the Tribunes, Moderators, Admins or the appellant will be deleted and the offending user warned.
Be patient
We are all volunteers, Tribunes included. We may not be able to review your case immediately. Rest assured we will reivew your case as soon as we can.
Give a good defence
Be logical, and think about your case. Are we likely to reverse it? Is your case hopeless?
For example, if you posted this:
Quote from: Joe Blog
hi i'd like to appeal a warning for this post:
Quote
YOU ****************************************
It's clear that's going to be denied.

DO NOT APPEAL THE SAME INFRACTION TWICE
Once we pass a judgement, IT'S FINAL. Creating another appeal for the same infraction will get you into trouble.


The Terms of Service apply to posts within the Tribunal, and are the guidelines used for deciding on moderation appeals. Appellants and moderators should also be aware of the Penalties Bill, which dictates how bans may be given out based on a member's violation records, and the Tribunal Orders bill which gives the rules for seeking long ban times.

"Punishment" was the wrong word. I have edited it.

If you get infracted for insulting someone and it's denied, you can't appeal that infraction again. But if you insult someone again, you can appeal it because it is a different infraction. If that makes sense.

I'll ask Jubal or someone else to make an Archive forum, where old cases will go.

could you start a thread of what not to appeal as well
That's a good idea. I'll do that.
