    Why are some people who are banned only banned for a couple months whereas others are banned for 99 months "indefinitely"? What about "Once you hack you never come back"? Well, in 3 months they definitely do come back.

    I think its how good they have done their appeal, put a lot of thought into it etc. If they lied, they probably get perm banned.

    Hm. I just don't understand why someone who hacks the exact same way that someone else did gets an once finite ban while the other only gets a few months.
    Well it still happens even if both of them didn't even make an appeal :/

    If someone is banned and the Mod/admin doesn't specify a length of time or a date for unban then the default is 3 months.

    I believe it depends on the severity of the offence.

    Well then won't players who hack be able to come back and then cause havoc again on the server? Maybe they should increase the default to 1 year?

    And yeah It also depends on there appeal, but most appeals end in either no change or a shortened length, very few appeals result in instant unban

    Hackers probably get a specified time, I.e. Forever or 1 year

    So...are hackers supposed to be banned for the default 3 months, or are they supposed to be indefinite?

    The punishment depends on the offence, some things get longer bans than others, for example fly hacks in skywars would get a longer ban than say antiknockback in survival games. All depends on what they did and possibly how well written the appeal is.
