Ban
R2D:A Discord Ban Guide
For Chat Moderators+



This page will be used as a guide when a user on the Discord has appeared to have broken the rules. Note, however, some rules may not be included within this list. Chat Moderators+ will, based upon the incident, decide on the block time. The amount of time one is blocked depend on how severe their actions were. In the case of repeated offences by a user, for example, being banned for swearing several separate times, the ban will be longer than what is stated on the broken rule.


A ban can be revoked by a Chat Head Moderator & Above if this requirement is not met.

#mod-call and #bug-report have a different set of rules. Read the pinned messages before posting.


If a given reason does not appear here, an appeal can be proposed; but can also be listed if needed.


Green = Low Tier Offense Rating
Yellow = Mid Tier Offense Rating
Red = High Tier Offense Rating
Black = Max Tier Offense Rating (Permanent Block)

If a user has not broken any further green/yellow rules after 1 week within their initial warning, Moderators are required to give another warning if that user breaks another rule. There are exceptions.

If you're also asking about in-appropriate things in chat, for example mentioning an inappropriate word to ask Chat-Moderators, please ask it in their DMs. Asking in general will result in punishment.



If a user has lost trusted 3 times in total, they are no longer welcomed to get trusted. (Removal of trusted is counted from 04/07/2018)

If a user attacks a staff member through DMs about the punishment they recieved, the user receives double punishment time, or a + warn. (Does not apply in game, if you think a mod did something wrong, DM a Chat head Moderator or above)


Users cannot be unbanned on discord, unless the ban reason was false, or lack of proof.


Mute

Staff members will start to use the mute command when a user has reached the qualifications for a ban ONCE, AKA: warnings already given, depends on the severity. It acts as a buffer before the ban applies. As always, there are exceptions.
