Use the format! Ban appeals that don't provide the information in the format will automatically be closed - you don't want that!
Check your appeal often! If no response is given in a week (maybe?) then it will be closed and you'll have to reapply again.
Make sure you read and respond to all the questions! The questions being asked are to help us come to a decision; what we're asking for is relevant and important.
Be courteous and respectful during your appeal! We promise to provide you with respect so we expect the same. Also, it doesn't help if you start your appeal using vulgar words you wouldn't even say to your momma.
