A staff member may appeal a punishment that they have received within 2 weeks of the punishment being issued, or, in extenuating circumstances, with the permission of a Community Team member.
In order to appeal a punishment, the user must post their appeal into the Appeals section on the forums, following the Punishment Appeal Template. The appeal will be voted on in the relevant meeting where the punishment was issued in order to reach a verdict.
The vote will take the form of a simple “yes” or “no” vote on whether to accept the appeal. A staff member of the relevant rank will respond to the appeal with the verdict and a reason. If the team vote to remove the punishment, it will be removed from the OneNote and, in the case of demotions, the user’s powers will be restored.
