We (GMs and admins) reserve the right to bend these rules depending on the current situation. You are expected to show common sense above all - this is what all these rules are about. Abuse our system and you will find much harsher penalties than the ones seen here.
In case you are banned, you are allowed ONE mail in which you can explain your situation and/or excuse yourself. Contact a GM to find out which of the GMs has banned you, then mail the one that has banned you once (and only once) with your explanation or apology. If the ban was given out wrongly or unjustly, we will apologise and you will gain the benefits outlined in section 3. In case the ban was correctly given, there is a small chance your duration will be lowered (if it is your first mistake) and a very small chance your ban will be lifted, depending on the GM's decision. Sending more than one mail will result in an increase of your punishment, even if the ban was not correctly given.
