    Ban appeal lasting entire ban durration

    It really seems to me that it defeats the purpose to have an appeal where it lasts the entire duration with zero response from the moderation team. This time it was over a week. If you guys are understaffed do you plan on bulking up with some fresh blood?

    You can apply to be a mod right now if you'd like.

    Could help if people didn't send in appeals on posts clearly in infraction territory.

    Technically, it takes 2-3 infractions to get banned in the first place. If the points don't accumulate, then infractions are essentially just spam PM's calling you bad.

    So if you're a good poster that doesn't break the rules but still gets an infraction, theoretically a week is long enough to remove an unwarranted infraction and you'll never face consequences anyway. If someone is getting 2-3 infractions within a week long span...then maybe taking the few days of ban is actually justified even if one of the infractions wasn't.

    The moderation on this site is a joke. Mocking MRA/Redpill points of view is all fine and dandy but as soon as you say something against immigrants or feminism or anything PC the mods jump you.

    My infractions beg to differ, stop crying about your persecution complex.

    I think the difference between infraction and not infraction is the difference between criticising immigration and criticising immigrants.

    Out of the 4 or 5 infractions I've got - only 1 was an error on the part of the mod, the other 4 were justifiable (even though I disagreed with the decision).

    As a comparison - I've been banned in other forums for:
    1. Talking about time travel in a Doctor Who discussion
    2. Talking about the notch in an iPhone X discussion
    3. Quoting too many people who later had their posts moderated.
    etc

    SO yeah - this forum is VERY lenient indeed.

    We always try our best to respond to appeals before the ban time is up. This week is Blizzcon, a lot of people were gone, it's unfortunately but not surprising appeals took longer. We don't like it, but there's only so much we can do. It's worth noting that it doesn't negate the value of the appeal: if the infraction is unjustified, us remedying it (a) helps us improve as mods going forward (b) removes active points from one's account which will shorten future bans.

    Mods are volunteers. We can't conjure more of them or force people to moderate when we're light on coverage. But yes, we can always use more people on the mod team, that's why we are always recruiting good candidates. We just need them to apply.
