    ***This also includes any other arguments/disputes in chat that staff members deem worthy of punishment. In arguments the oppressor will be banned. For example, in a racial argument the player(s) being hateful towards the race will be banned. However the player(s) defending the race will not.

    Idk. I think the ban period should be longer than 1 day but not a perm ban. They might even learn their lesson afterwards and not do it again. We can't assume anything just yet. And the reason I say this is because if we allow them to come back after their ban, its like giving them another chance. If they do however use an inappropriate skin again, I think it should end in a perm ban, because at that point everyone can see that they are intent and clearly doing it purposefully.

    Chargeback is whenever you purchase an item, take back your money yet keep whatever you bought. It’s pretty much stealing.

    Targeting is like.. avoiding everyone else and going for one user specifically - like in oitc or other games regarding this rule. qwq

    I think some bans could be more severe:

    Innappropriate skins and links: A lot of kids play this game, and these skins can be really shocking or disturbing for them. Everyone knows this is not ok, it's common sense. If they do this, they just do it on purpose.
    A 1-day ban is not enough. People can easily stop playing for one day, and they won't even notice the ban. 7 days is fair enough, if you ask me.

    Abusing/Bullying: For most common toxic behaviors, 7 days is fine. Those typical, "you're a noob", "coward", or even insults like "f*ck you", "f*ggot", etc.
    But sometimes, players can cross the line and say things like "kill yourself". This is when it crosses the line, I think when suicide is involved, bans should be way more severe. Like 30 days or a permanent ban. Suicide is not a joke.

    Teaming / cross teaming: This is not as big of a deal as the two I mentioned above. Yet I think a 2-days ban is too little. As I said above, people can just stop playing for 1-2 days without even noticing the ban, or they can just say to their team "don't worry man, it's only a two-day ban". We can team up again, later.
    2 days doesn't even feel like a punishment. 4 or 5 days would be fine.

    Those were just examples of the most minor toxic behaviors, I said those things are not a big deal compared to saying things like "kill yourself", which in my opinion should be punished more severely.

    Teaming is not the worst thing, but is clearly unfair, and I find the punishment kind of, kind of nothing. 2 days is practically no punishment at all. Imagine 2 players playing in this server every two days, for them, the ban would just mean nothing. It's a matter of fact that it is against the rules, on most servers is not allowed.
    The ban is just barely noticeable. If you ban people for only two days, they won't learn the lesson. They will just pretend nothing happened and team up again whenever they want, ruining other players games.
    That's why I think 4 or 5 days is fair enough to encourage players not to team up.
