Right, well, this is the most likely problem you'll encounter
not so likely any longer, as EoP has settled the fuck down and now we no longer need to keep an itchy trigger finger on the banhammer (it's a complex mechanism, okay?), so chances are you'll only get banned if you're repeatedly acting like a tool or successfully antagonising the right people (i.e. ops, mods, etc. the usual suspects). Now, this MIGHT not be entirely your fault, so we do have an appeals process in case you were drunk / your account totally got hacked / you're actually sorry for being a jackass / you've been impersonated by lizard-men, etc.
The way to go about fixing this problem is to post in our ban-appeals subforum, here
- the reason you were banned would have been made clear to you before the ban itself, but if there's any confusion then PM either myself or null and ask.
Now (srs bsns), before you run off to make an appeal, take a moment to consider what you're going to say, and if you are sure you're ready - i.e. you've fixed whatever was the reason for your ban in the first place. Running there an hour after your ban was placed screaming "OMG OMG OMG UNBAN ME PLZ PLZ IM VERY SORRY K K K K K!?!?!?" is likely NOT to get your ban lifted, and a bad or unconvincing appeal can in fact hurt your chances of getting unbanned.
Understand that this isn't to be mean - it's because we hear a lot of excuses and half-hearted apologies from people and truth be told it's made us a bit jaded when it comes to this
are assholes (most probably). So take your time and make your case PROPERLY (basically just be level-headed and not a piece of shit, okay?)
