i've also added instructions on how to appeal a ban to the automated notification emails. in the coming days i'll implement a mechanism so that each ban will have to be approved by multiple moderators.
*Due to increased bot signup, manual approval is required. Please write some applicable request text on signup with why you want to join. Submissions that fail to do so will be denied.*
