Have you been banned from one of our servers? You might have deserved it but sometimes people get caught in the crossfire. Either way, you'll need to read this first, then register on the forums so you can post up in our banned forums and state your case.
See you in-game or on the forums and again, welcome to GC!

1) YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE DONE ANYTHING WRONG.
Sometimes we make mistakes. New admins push the wrong button and ban everyone including themselves. You can get caught up in a mass ban of voice spammers or TK'ers. It happens. We're sorry. Skip down to the bottom and hit the link to post up in our banned forums. Explain and it'll get taken care of.
2) YOU PROBABLY DID SOMETHING...
Some of the things that can get you banned include not changing your screen name when asked to. Yes, even if you think it's harmless we might not. Spamming the voice channel. TK'ing. Griefing in general. Rushing on our L4D2 server. General dickery. Racist language voice or text. Swearing voice or text. Occasionally people who do not understand how to play the L4D2 game type might get kicked. That's not a ban.
3) OK, YES. I DID SOMETHING. NOW WHAT?
Check our SourceBans page. Pull up your screen name. You can see the length of your ban there. If you believe it's too long or you wish to challenge a permanent ban, read on.
4) IT WAS A BAN FOR AN HOUR/DAY/WEEK/PERMANENT. I'M SORRY.
Own up. That helps a lot. If you post up in our banned forums telling us how wrong we are and that you should be able to use whatever language you like because it's an adult game and our server suxors and etc... Things will not go well for you. Many long standing members got banned (for real or inadvertently) on one of our servers but owned up, saw the value in our server standards, stuck around, and are still here years later. Maybe that's not you but then again, maybe it is...
5) I''M READY TO ASK TO BE UN-BANNED.
Groovy. Keep in mind. Sometimes the ban stays. You might have well and truly earned it. Read some of the other threads in the banned forum to get an idea of how it's going to go. Also, be sure to give the admins some time? They enjoy playing too and their first instinct after leveling a ban isn't to quit the game to wait for you to post in the banned forums. If there is no response after 24 hours give a yell. All good? Good luck!
