Sometimes if I'm browsing the forums and nothing really catches my eyes, I look at ban appeals just for the hell of it, to see why people were banned, and if they are given a chance to reedeem themselves. I have found that many of the bans were for trivial things, or even emotionally driven during times of war where tempers are flaring, and tension is devastating. I have also found that many of the bans were for multi's (and in most cases the appeal is denied rightfully so) but some of the multi's are just newbies (who seem to be more active then the frequent, create and leave newbies, considering they are appealing) that simply, out of force of habit from other annoyingly long ToS's did not read the rules, and therefore rerolled multiple times to get a good resource set. With all of this said, there are some bans that are well-earned and obviously do not deserve any form of a second chance, but among them there are those dedicated players that simply did not think before acting in times of aggression, or in personal feuds with other players, and even with that taken into account, most if not all of those cases are still denied. This troubles me, because as we know, CN has seen better days regarding player activity, especially with new nation building games popping up now and again. So I know this is a futile blog post for the intended purpose, but I would like to see admin slack the rules in those instances, where the player was in good standing, and is sincerely sorry for what he/she has done to get banned.
