Global bans are formal restrictions placed on people to restrict their access to Miraheze services.
The community may vote to globally ban a user (usually through a Request for Comments). To do this, a vote is held in which community members vote on the proposal. If the proposal to globally ban a user passes, a Steward will enforce the outcome of the discussion by locking the user and all other related user accounts. Global bans by the community are generally done in extreme cases where the user has engaged in severe cross-wiki abuse, has persistently disrupted various Miraheze projects, and where remediation attempts to address any behavior deemed an issue have failed.
To appeal a ban by the community, a user should appeal through a community venue such as Request for Comments. To appeal a ban issued by Site Reliability Engineering or Trust and Safety, please email tsmiraheze.org. Please make sure to include any relevant information in your appeal.
