With the Changes/Updates to Forum Rules and Guidelines, I feel like there is a missing element within the new guidelines in which we are meant to interact.
Why is there still no method in which someone could appeal a ban or other moderation decision within the community?
As it stands, there is not a single method or way in which one could reasonably go about requesting reconsideration of moderation decisions within any areas in which the community interacts officially. Many other communities have clear guidelines about processes that come following a ban or other extensive moderation decision, such as guidelines on how long someone should wait to appeal; such as 6 months, a year, etc. Within this space, you are heavily left in the dark as to how someone could move through a request to reconsider. From what I have gathered in conversation with users who have been banned, it has lead to a rather negative perception that could have easily been avoided, and can be avoided in future.
I am not presenting this suggestion as a selfish method, but instead as something that could be beneficial going forward for transparency in moderation, as well as reducing the negative effects one could feel in decisions that one would feel unfair, and heavily reducing the actions taken that make actions worse on both sides.
