I have made the observation, that under the current rules and admin procedures that many players receive bans until appeal. Not only that, but bans in general are handed out like candy. I know that my opinion on the matter may not be entirely unbiased, as a player of the server and recipient of a number of bans that were well deserved. However, it is my opinion that under these rules we reduce the number of players that could make productive members of our community. I, for one have received outright bans until appeal even before I was finished speaking to an admin, regardless of explaining exactly what I did wrong, what rule I broke, and what to do in the future. I understand that players need to understand the rules, but I do think that admins should have to acknowledge that the other party is finished making their points, and then process a ban if it is required at that time. But, before a ban and the conclusion of a ticket can proceed I do think that the following should be given to the accused. Exactly what they did wrong, what rule it violated, and what to do in the future. Barring creating too much of a hassle, it might even be prudent to remove the rule violation part, but at the very least they should be told what to do in the future. Most especially, this new procedure would enable new players from the hub, and just the normal trickle we get to remain here, without bans until appeal. Furthermore, as an extension of this proposal, I do think that bans until appeal need to be narrowed in their scope and acceptability with regards to what exactly qualifies as such. This is just a suggestion, but I do think that it will lessen the toxicity that arises during some administrative tickets, and enable players to become fruitful and productive members of our community.
