    Denied, spelling and grammar is terrible, you didn't finish the application, and your back story is a sentence at most. If you wish to come onto the server, you will need to work on spelling, etc. Just take a look at the other apps that have been accepted.

    Good luck if you decide to work on your application!

    BAN APPEAL APPLICATION:

    IGN: videot
    Alright, first things first, your ban was a temp ban issued by myself, thus not having a reason. The reason you were banned was because of a specific structure created by you. It was a scarecrow with a pumpkin head, on the back of the pumpkin there was a sign that read "I HATE WOMEN! -Ren" This is unacceptable, even as a joke. As for being a member for almost a year, Ravien opened October 14th, 2012, so you have been a member for 4-5 months max. I am sorry but, this ban appeal is not good enough to be accepted, and the ban will remain on your record, you may come back January 28th, 2013. Sorry, but the temp ban is final.

    BAN APPEAL APPLICATION:

    IGN: zJester

    Why where you banned?: X-raying

    Who banned you? I think it counts as an autoban..

    Why should we have you back on the server?
    Well in my own defense, I don't actually have xray on my own computer as it was on a friend's laptop from back home. I am now at college and have no access to xray again. However, I am not saying what I did was wrong. It was in fact a terrible act of doing so and I truly do feel bad that I gave in to the temptation of using it. I feel that it was definately a mistake that will forever blemish my image for the server. It was only my first experience with xray and I kind of went crazy with it. I mean, going from hours of mining with low yield to short periods of mining with incredible profit sounded great at the time. It was a one time thing however, and I have now learned my lesson. I do enjoy this server very much and feel that I greatly contribute to the community as a whole. Whether you choose to accept me or not is all up to the staff of this server and I will accept whatever punishment they deem necessary with maturity and respect. Even if the server chooses to deny me, I would like to stay friends with you all as I have come to appreciate the relationships I have made with you all. I would greatly appreciate a second chance and will take whatever precautions necessary to ensure that I can continue my experience with you all. Thank you for considering my appeal.
    Accepted, I'm glad you learned you lesson and I hope we do not have to go through this again, welcome back to Ravien!

    Open-Response-Questions
    Each question here must be answered with a minimum of one full paragraph, and detail the scene you are given in the way it would happen in roleplay. These questions should be answered in first person. Be detailed, not short.

    Upon entering the Mighty Human City of Arethor, you come across a shop-keeper calling out to sell his wares to passers-by. The shopkeeper is not a Human, he is a poor dwarf looking to make a living in a new city. What is your response?: I was walkin' through the city, bystanders gettin' in the way, I try to push my way through when I noticed a small shop sellin' wares, decently crafted I might add. I looked at the shop then walked in, only to notice that the shopkeeper was a dwarf, I noticed he didn't look so good, so I asked him "Lad, you 'right?" the dwarf simply responded with "Aye, just a bit sad, I want to get out of this city and start a new life. That's all." I then replied with, "Oi, lad, you look like you need a bit of coin, here." I handed a small bag of coins to the dwarf. "Thanks mister." Replied the dwarf, "Would you like anythin'?" I simply replied with, "No thank ye, lad. I best be goin', good luck with yer shop." I browsed through the store, then walked off.

    Youre wandering the Oren Road late at night, when a large Orc begins to threaten a nearby dwarf. There is no help nearby, and the situation looks like it will escalate into violence soon, what does your character do?: I was walkin' on Oren road, when I noticed somethin' out of the corner of my eye. A small dwarf, no taller than a longsword, gettin' in a rustle with an Orc. I yelled out "Oi! Leave the dwarf alone ye filthy piece o' ­!" Tim yells. The Orc noticing the man, turns to me and begins to run at him. I, not knowing what else to do stood in the way of the Orc, only to move out of the way at the last second. Lookin' to the dwarf, I yelled out "Run!" The dwarf stared at me for a good five seconds before runnin' off... I looked at the Orc and yelled out "C'mon ye slow ­, now catch me!" I ran off, as fast as I could before noticing that the Orc gave up chasin' me a long time ago. I turned around, catchin' my breath I said "That's what I thought..."

    Whilst walking down the road to Malinor, you stumble upon an old man. His walking stick , looks weak and frail, and just as you are about to ask something, the stick breaks, and the man falls to the ground. As he falls down, a bag of Minas falls to the ground, and splits open. As you watch the multiple coins spill out, you peer down at the defenceless man. What does your character do?: I was walkin' down to Malinor when I noticed a frail old man, probably older than the dirt he slept on, he was walking with a cane, well I should say a stick, he was walkin' with a stick, and I went up to him, askin' if he needed any help, when his cane broke and he fell down, as he fell, a sack ripped open and Minas came flyin' out the bag. I looked at the man, got down and asked, "Oi lad, you alright? You took a nasty fall, let me help you out." I sat the man up, grabbing his Minas and putting them back in the bag, I handed the man the bag, he grabbed it and said "Thank you." I responded with, "It's not a problem, lad." I fixed his "cane" and helped him up. When I got him up on his feet, the man looked at me, dug around in his pocket, pulling out the very sack I repaired, and said "Really... Thank you..." placing the sack of Minas in my hand I said "Huh... Thank ye, lad. Really, this is a great help." The man responded with "No, thank you. You could have easily taken my money and ran but, you decided to help me instead, you probably need the money more than I do so please, take it as a token of my gratitude." Then the man looked at me, smiled, then continued on his marry way.

    There i added it in, i was confused to weather i write that part out or someone else did my bad. I also changed my background in case you caught my in mid edit.

    Also, you have only have four choices for alliances, and three of them are not available, just saying.

    We know, and that is a problem, its just that DM hand picks their citizens, on request of their Lord. BH has a maxed out population, again on request of their Lord. KH is destroyed and for some reason we have yet to remove it from the alliance list. Sorry for the confusion and we understand that it may be causing some issues with the application process. Anyways, good luck with the application!

    Thank you! Also one more quetion before I try, sorry for the quetions if they are bothersome but I really want to give this a try, but to become a character like say I want to be an elf, would I have to be born from someone already on the server or make up my own family?

    This confused me a bit.

    (As a nexus of all universes, you can arrive in Ravien via death in another world, birth to someone in Ravien, creation via Demonology, etc.)

    No, you do not have to be born from another player's family, you can make up your own. As far as the Nexus thing, just say your character died in some epic way and ended up on Ravien. I don't understand why we still have it, it just seems to bother people, including me. So, if that is all your questions, good luck with the application process and we cannot wait to have you on the server.

    Hello,

    I am not new to minecraft but I am new to roleplaying on a server. I don't have any experiance really but I was wondering if I applied and tried it out, would I be allowed to play on the server? The idea of it is really interesting and I would like to give it a shot. This is also one of the only servers that I have read up on that seems to actually have roleplaying in it. Also If I end up messing up in any way could someone inform me of what I would be doing wrong or you could just tell me to leave if need be. Thank you for taking the time to read my question :) .

    Purplepanag

    We'd love for you to be able to have your first RP experience on our server but, you must be fair warned, not everyone likes to RP with people who are inexperienced. We will take note that it is your first time trying to get into RP and will make sure that you will have a good time trying to get into it. You'd still have to post an application and you will still expected to uphold the same standards and rules as everyone else. Again, we'd love to have your first RP experience on Ravien. Good luck with the application process!

    Can my town citizenship be switched from Keyhold Canyon to Broken Hill since it's an uninhabited crater currently?
    -Percy

    Broken Hill is currently maxed out as far as population, so you can switch to Trenma. If you'd like.

    It has been a day now.

    Can the ban be lifted for it was a one day ban?

    Sorry for the wait, you should be unbanned now.

    BAN APPEAL APPLICATION:

    (For all who appeal a ban, just know this is your one and only shot.
    If your appeal gets denied, then the ban is final and you cannot come
    back to the server.)

    IGN: Didlspower4evah

    Why where you banned?: I abused my access to the broadcast function to make comments about a giant bird abducting dwarves.

    Who banned you?: I agreed to accept the punishment after realizing I was being a total douche, I apologize sincerely for interrupting RP threads and cluttering the Global Chat.

    Why should we have you back on the server? Not really sure, This kind of thing has happened before and will probably happen again in the future. I can only promise that I will put effort into containing my silliness. I do enjoy being part of the community, despite the occasional rough patch, and enjoy the good times we have all had together.

    You're ban has already been pardoned. Welcome back to Ravien!

    I have a few questions regarding the app.

    1. What are the population statuses of Keyhold Canyon and Broken Hill?
    2. For the roleplay example, may I change "Your family is with you..." to "Your friend is with you..."?
    3. May I mention another potential player within my app, whom of which will be mentioned in the "Method of Arrival" section, the "Character Backstory" section, and the "Roleplay Example" section.

    Thank you, and I understand if you say no to any one of these.

    Key Hold is destroyed, Broken Hill has a large population.
    We would like it if you didn't change the app, only if completely needed.
    And the other said player would need to fill out their own application, but you can mention them.

    I have a suggestion. Lower the mob spawn rate at Broken Hill. It's like Night of the Living Dead out there.

    With Towny, you can get rid of the mob spawns completely. Broken Hill just needs the money to claim their city and the surrounding area.

    Why where you banned?: Left a dirt tower in the nether while trying to get back up after collecting some glowstone

    Who banned you?: MrCourtesyBear

    Why should we have you back on the server?
    (This needs to be more than just "Please!
    I wont do it again!" We want to know if
    you learned from whatever mistake it was
    that got you banned.): Wasn't thinking about the dirt tower, I was just focusing on getting the glow stone and blazes. I know not to leave dirt towers and to break any that I see.

    Accepted
    I am going to apologize now, from what I was told, I thought you were leaving dirt pillars in the over world randomly, hence the ban. Just be fair warned, if we feel you are doing anything that is breaking the rules, you will be perma-banned. Thank you for remaining mature during the banning process. Welcome back to Ravien!

    Sorry for leaving dirt pillar in the nether, forgot that wasn't allowed. But I'm always sure to break down pillars I see normally.

    Sorry for the confusion, but this isn't the proper format for ban appeals. I need to get the Owner to post this on the topic. Please use this format if you wish to be unbanned.
