    how long does an infraction appeal usually take?

    so i got an infraction yesterday for minor spam. i'm not going to go into the details here. however, i did appeal for the infraction to both Sunshine and Boubouille last night. am i just being impatient here and does it take longer than a day for infractions to be checked? or is it something else?
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    From the moment the admin you appealed to posts it in the Appeal Discussions forum, most cases are closed within a day. We don't close them faster in order to give mods from all timezones the opportunity to look into the thread and vote on the infraction.

    In rare cases where there is no consensus, discussion may take longer than the day stated above in order to reach a convincing majority for either reversing or keeping an infraction in place.

    That's correct. Once the moderation team comes to a consensus, you'll be informed of the outcome.

    the cases on which they change their mind are so low I don't even think it's worth it. After all it's only 3 days so wasting time on appeals isn't recommended. Good luck on it though

    The infraction lasts for three months. The ban is very different, and he wouldn't be posting in this forum if he were appealing that.

    I didn't know that was so...
    In that case though I'm waiting for a response to a similar case since 2011-07-11 :P

    I have two infractions against me, one that just says "Private" and one that I'd like to appeal. I can't seem to see a way to do so. Anyone?
    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.

    Pretty sure you have to PM Sunshine and she will open a thread in the appeal forum. (I'm not sure though, I've never appealed an infraction myself)
