We, as the new BF4DB plan to make appealing a ban as painless of an experience as possible for both sides. The overarching goal for both reporters and administrators / moderators is to limit the amount of confusion and disconnect between the appeal and the evidence provided.
Keep in mind that every ban appeal that does not match the given requirements will be denied and locked down without any warning!
After creating your ban appeal a BF4DB staff member will review your complaint and give a first response within 24 hours. If the thread author has not carried out the, by staff requested tasks, within 72 hours the appeal will be denied and locked down without mercy!
Appealing your Ban
Please use the following template for now until we can add it in a future update:
Adding a link to your BF4DB is mandatory and will significantly speed up the process
Copy / Paste both the banreason and the evidence that has been added by either an administrator or a BF4DB user into the ban appeal thread
Explain your situation and why you feel that the ban has been issued in an unfair manner. Add further information on why you think the ban should be lifted.
Be honest! If a staff member checking your ban appeal observes that you have been lying about the circumstances your appeal will be denied and locked down.
If you have been banned at BF4DB for a third party ban outgoing from fellow Anti-Cheat organisations such as GGC-Stream, PBBans and / or ACI you will have to appeal your ban there first. If they lift the ban we will do the same.
Staff may request a third person gameplay video if needed however further details on how the video has to be recorded are posted by the requesting staff member.
Add as much information proving your innocence as possible however the provided information has to be topic related.
If you have been banned by our sitebot or staff for the banreason 'Suspicious Stats' and the anomalies in your stats have been caused by Statpadding ( Flagrunning and / or Tradekilling) add a battlereport proving clear Statpadding related to the weapon statistics anomalies have been found in.
Please be aware that you can only appeal for your own account and that only once! If your appeal has been denied do NOT create a second appeal. If so the second appeal will be denied and locked down aswell. If thread / ban appeal spaming occurs we will permanently suspend your BF4DB user account without any warnings prior to that.
If you are not an official staff member of BF4DB do NOT post in any ban appeals that have not been opened by yourself. If you have information of any kind you think would help our staff team progressing on a pending ban appeal feel free to send a private message to the staff member that reviews the case with a link to the ban appeal you are submitting for and the information you would like to share with us.
Thanks for your attention,
