Lately I’ve noticed players commenting on ban or mute appeal threads that were not involved in the incident.
I believe only staff should be able to reply on appeal threads. Other players commenting only causes unnecessary drama and congestion on the thread. If other players think they have something else to add to the appeal, they should private message staff instead of posting it publicly on the player’s appeal thread.
You could either make it a rule that replying to other players’ appeal threads is not allowed, or automatically lock these threads to anyone but staff and the original poster after they are submitted.
