New Ban Appeal Process

    We have a new ban appeal process. As long as you follow our rules and are a good Sandlot citizen, you shouldn't ever have to worry about anything in this post. If you happen to find yourself banned, read on.

    Ban appeals now require a forum account. We want every player who plays on The Sandlot to have a forum account.

    If you are banned, and you do not currently have a forum account, you must first register on our website. There are instructions how to do that here: http://www.sandlotminecraft.com/thr...-questions-read-this-first.23541/#post-165749

    It will seem odd that you have to apply for the whitelist when you are already a player, but just state in your application that you already have whitelist access and are simply requesting to create a forum account.

    When loading the Appeal a Ban page, it will automatically fill in your username and email address from your logged in account. This will prevent typos that can sometimes delay ban pardons. If you are a parent or guardian appealing a ban for a child, you need to log out from your own account and log in with their forum account to appeal the ban.

    You can find the Appeal a Ban page in the Help menu at the top of the page, as well as on the forums under the Sandlot Support section. The direct link is here: http://www.sandlotminecraft.com/appeal-ban

    If you have any difficulties or feedback on this new process, please let me know.

    Thanks c0wg0d. I don't think I'll have to use this, but it's extremely useful information. :)

    Thanks c0wbellie! ;)

    Comment: When you go to the Help section of the forums, at the top of the screen, in the light blue header (under the larger dark blue header), there are two subtitles of Appeal a Ban. The first one (left) is the previous ban appeal forum; the second one (right) is this current forum. You can access both.

    Question: Is it possible to make a note on asking who is filling out the ban appeal and who is responsible for being banned? What I mean by this is to have a small side message that asks/reminds (I don't mean for stating who is responsible for doing what a necessity, but maybe recommended?) to state who is filling out the ban appeal (e.g. parent/guardian, the player banned) and who got banned (e.g. child, the player banned). Thoughts?

    Thanks for your continued work on The Sandlot!

    I think this might only be true for helpers and moderators. Can all of you see two entries for Appeal a Ban?

    I can see two entries, but they looked like the info requested would cover who is filling vs banned.
    Glad I looked as ChanCe67T wants a forum account and is wanting to try to chat more. Might need it:rolleyes: but hope not!

    We rarely ban anyone from the forums. If we do, it means we will not consider an appeal from that person anyway.

    It's not required, so it's up to him and your parents/guardians. If you are under 13, you must sign up with your parent or guardian.

    I had to do that, and because I'm under 13, in order for it to have my correct age, I set my status to male, 10, from mars
