Appeal & Reporting Policy
As you are aware, we accept ban appeals, scam reports, and user reports. If any of these reports include personal or embarrassing information about a user that would make them feel uncomfortable and open, the post will be removed, and you will be warned. If it is continued on your behalf, infractions will be issued. Repeat offenders may have their permission revoked from the report categories or may have their forum account banned. Creating multiple threads after your appeal has been reviewed and dealt with will easily result in high infractions, revoking report access, or a forum ban.
