Thanks to the mods, my post was answered and I will be leaving it here for anyone who needs validation for the same reason. The comments where very helpful and thank you to all who have replied! -Kat I understand that there will always be people who are rude, but even then whats with the excessive muting? Almost all my friends have been muted for utterly stupid reasons and have been told that they cant even appeal for them! Example A: One of my friends got muted because she was calling one of her other friends, and i quote her exact words, "Stoopid". She did not even receive a warning first or anything! She was first muted for 13 hours, which in my opinion is suitable for server standards of chat, but then it was upped by a mod to a whole 7 days! For simply calling her friend "Stoopid" in a very obvious friend way! And sure I get that its a bit rude, even for buddy-buddy/friend talk, and I also get that the mods are just trying to keep chat clean which I very much appreciate, But for a whole 7 days? That seems way too much! For comparison I was muted a week and a half ago for filter bypass (which was honestly deserved, i had lost my cool) and had gotten a 7.3 day mute. I felt that it was a bit too much and i was going to first guess maybe 4-5 days tops but oh well on that one. My point here is that it seems unfair for someone like her who only had "bad chat behavior" to get a whole seven days compared to someone like me who filter bypassed! How are these ranked the same as far as how long you're muted for? Example B: This one is to explain why appealing wouldn't help. Problem A is: Most of my friends have tried to appealed for their mutes as they also felt it was too much, and have been told they needed an account. Why? I get that it's most likely to be for verification, but couldn't they just put their ign and report number into a slot without having an account? I feel as if this would be faster and help a lot more then having to go through the entire process of making a account. Problem B is: Even if they where to get the account. half the time they are denied appeal! even if it was a small reason that can be resolved by just explaining the situation. At least allow something that tells friends you're muted! people use to use /bc and animal tags to tell others they where muted but those are now taken away. I have literally lost friends because they thought i was ignoring them and had no way to say i was muted, Thanks Mineplex! And so, to put an end to this post, my base conclusion is this: Even if you do waste your time making an account and finally put your appeal in, its most likely to be denied. It would just be better to wait the mute out or just play on a different server for awhile until its over since being unable to talk makes communication between team mates and other players harder and renders playing on Mineplex a waste of time since most of their games are team games anyways!
