Can my whole account be banned by breaking the forum rules?
Technically, yes. Although this is highly unlikely and will only occur in "extreme" situations. Only the RV Team are able to issue account bans, forum moderators are not.
Appealing a forum ban
Forum ban appeals are only possible by sending a private message to one of the RV Team members.
When a player breaks any of the rules above or when a post is offensive to you in any way, you may report the post by clicking on the "Report" button on the bottom of the post.
You can recognize the moderation team by the black or blue background color of their post. Black posts are from the RV Team members and blue posts are from the forum moderation team members.
These rules may be updated at any time, even without your notice. By using the forums you acknowledge that you agree to these rules and you will obey them.
