Appeal[edit source]

This page is nothing but player opinion. No one actually knows what makes a good appeal, in fact very little information about the appeal process has been released, except I believe it was said somewhere that appeals are rejected automatically if significant evidence of rule-breaking exists.

Delete Nominator. HNHBucket detail.pngrwojy 07:01, October 23, 2009 (UTC) Delete - Rwojy said it much better then I could. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 07:10, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Keep and rewrite - It's full of opinionated crap that needs to be deleted, but the appeal process is an important part of account management and deserves an article. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  10:34, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Delete - Per Nom. --Armadyl symbol.png Nightgunner Talk Illuminated Book of Law.png 14:02, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Delete or Rewrite - If someone could rewrite this well, then great, but otherwise: delete. This is the nightmare of RS:NPOV. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 14:05, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Delete or Rewrite - I suppose it could deserve an article, but this page tramps all over RS:NPOV. Just fix it or get rid of it... --

Rewrite - It could be good - but the only information would be based on logic, and comman sence. I will attempt to re-write it if it dosent get deleted  Woodcutting Benzeman talk contribsDragon hatchet.png  16:08, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - How can you vote to delete or rewrite at the same time.. that's contradictory. Andrew talk 16:18, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Delete - Jagex accepts and denies appeals pretty much at random. As such this article is wishful thinking. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:23, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

According to them they read every appeal, so who are we to call them liars? :s Andrew talk 16:33, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
I know from experience that the content of an appeal has nothing to do with its fate. Maybe they read it, but who's to say that makes a difference? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:44, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
You aren't the only one with these experiences. >_> They do not approve/deny appeals at random. Andrew talk 16:53, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
Maybe not at random but a well written appeal won't significantly improve your chances, that's for sure. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:11, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
No, it isn't "for sure" because that's a load of rubbish. I'm done debating this issue unless you're willing to be open-minded and quit assuming bad faith about Jagex. Andrew talk 17:16, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
I've got agree with Soldier here, there is absolutely no way you can know how JaGeX deals with appeals, unless you secretly work for them. --Aburnett(Talk) 17:20, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Rewrite - It's badly written, but it's needed. bad_fetustalk 17:35, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I'm going to attempt to rewrite it in a couple of hours (I have to go out now, so I'll write it when I'm back). Screw it, I'm no good at rewriting. I'll leave it to guys like Morian Smith. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  21:01, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Keep/rewrite-It's definitely needed although a rewrite wouldn't do any bad.Saradomin swordZorvarsingh [Talk] [Contribs] 16:52, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

Rewrite - I suppose a rewriting of the article may be preferable to simply deleting may have some helpful tips to certain players. Ralnon (talk) 18:21, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

Delete, bordering on rewrite. - I don't think player opinion is relevant for this subject. However, if the article is rewritten so that it is based on fact rather than player opinion then I'd be okay with this. Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 22:19, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - The whole guide thing needs to go. It's completely opinionated and nobody knows if writing a polite appeal even affects Jagex's decision. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  05:15, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

Keep but complete rewrite - Appeals are a significant detail of the mute/ban process and deserve an article. This article however needs a complete overhaul to be NPOV. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 23:57, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

Rewrite - I believe it should be rewritten to include fact, not player opinion. Rewrite with a NPOV in mind. Prgmbeta 00:04, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
