Granted, this would be another opportunity for Mineplex to earn money (there's no denying that), but it's something that just won't work out in the end, really. If people are facing permanent bans/mutes, that could easily prove their sheer negligence of the rules that they agreed to since joining Mineplex. I know some people may be less mindful of the rules where they may say something that would be difficult to interpret as punishable on Mineplex because (1) someone may behave a certain way that's not punishable on one server, which Mineplex does not condone on their server, and (2) everyone makes decisions for different reasons, but that leads me to my point on why appeals exist. Over the years, these threads have been around, and the reason I haven't been in agreement with this idea is that it would defeat the purpose of appealing your punishments. If you believe that you deserve another chance, that means you came to the conclusion that you've learned from your wrongdoings and are willing to improve. Bribing Mineplex to remove your punishment doesn't tell the staff why you think you deserve another chance - instead, that only says you want your punishment to be removed. Appeals aren't about why you want your punishment to be removed, they're about why your punishment should be removed. If you were punished for something that now you're remorseful of, how will the staff know that you'll not behave like that again? There are some replies saying that it would violate the EULA (which I don't know too much about at the moment), but I don't think having a payment option would counter the hacker situation on Mineplex. The reason the hacker situation is multiplying is that they're using alternate accounts to continue hacking on the server. I've heard people suggest IP bans for a while, which would definitely reduce the number of hackers that are currently infesting the server, but that's a topic of its own.
