    If Sunshine is unreachable, who do we contact for appeals?

    I recently got an infraction for a post in the rogues forum where I made a comparison involving the USA, which a mod didn't approve of since he thought the only possible reason for such a comparison was to bash the USA. I contacted Sunshine through PM to ask for an appeal since it wasn't my intent to bash the USA at all, but Sunshine hasn't come online in ages, and I think I got a pretty decent chance of a successful appeal.

    is there someone else who I can contact to appeal moderator decisions?

    Any moderator can and will lodge an appeal against the infraction for you.

    Sunshine is responsible for issues with specific moderator behavior.
    Infraction appeals can be sent to any moderator, who will then create the appeal thread for you and inform you when a decision is reached.

    Any idea when she will be back? I PM-ed her yesterday, but have no response yet. I have some serious complaints about moderation.

    Sunshine is around all the time, she's just often busy so her replies may not be quick.

    I know that while she definitely reads every PM and takes them seriously, it is possible that she might not send an individual response if it seems like you just want to voice concerns or ask her to look into an issue but are not actually asking a question or something.

    Yesterday i just wanted to inform her, but today i have an actual issue that only she can help me with. Thanks for the information. I am not in a hurry, just hope the issue gets looked into.

    Don't bother with appeals. They are useless. Same with sending sunshine a msg. Waste of everyones time.

    Well I made an appeal 3 days ago. My thread had 2 page views, both from me. Today around 1 pm my thread finally got visited by a Mod who copy pasted "we discussed bla bla your ban will not be appealed".

    Usually ban appeal threads get 9-20 page views when they are actually discussed. I am 99% certain that no one bothered reading my appeal.

    The ban appeal text is copied to an internal forum where a discussion thread is created. No one needs to view your thread unless they want to reply.

    Experience. No replies from her. Infractions for little things while others can do as they please. Reported posts not getting anything done with them.


    I've learned to just let things go here. Nothing will change so why bother.

    So why did they view these threads 5-6 months ago? Some appeals have 10+ views and only 1 reply.

    I'm honestly not sure. What chaud said is totally correct though; scrapbot reposts appeals in a special forum for mods where we can discuss.

    I rarely even go into the actual user appeals forum.

    The page views you're seeing are only page views on the public thread.

    EDIT: The 1 reply posts are usually spam bot appeals (yes, some spam bots post their spam in the appeals board, amusingly).

    I've had an infraction repealed, so it definitely does happen. You won't see the progress being made and only see the result, it will tell you in your infraction list if it was repealed.

    I've had my infractions appealed before. Some of the infractions I've gotten are silly but I've gotten at least one repealed. Just going *Nothing can be done, Woe is me* Will not help improve the system if you ask me.

    What you guys don't know is that there's a special ritual you have to do to lure Sunshine out, you can't just PM it and expect it to show up.
    If you think there's an 'e' in "ridiculous" or an 'a' in "definitely" I probably won't read the rest of your post.
