How punishments are issued
If you break a rule, you will be punished by one of our Moderators, Administrators or MP Lead Developers.

All staff are informed extensively on how to moderate our channels and community, however, if you feel a punishment was unfair, you may appeal it at: https://forum.beammp.com/category/28/ban-appeal
Where every appeal is overlooked by Titch, and reviewed by our administrators.
If you have a complaint with a staff member, you may contact @Holyguaka#1895 on discord directly, or make a post on our forums.

If you’re caught breaking the same rule right after being warned, you’ll be directly tempmuted/tempbanned at staff discretion even if you don’t have 3 warnings.

These rules may be updated/changed in the future, make sure to read the updated versions too. You can see the changelog in the post below.
