Manual bans are put in place for players that fail to follow our ruleset or behave poorly on our servers.
Server admins have the right to remove anyone whom they feel may be disruptive to game play or those who through present or past behaviour are not suited to our environment. We are under no obligation to justify the actions taken, nor will we engage in discussion on the kicks/bans imposed, with the exception of appeals or a simple clarification of any action taken.
All of the kicks/bans enforced on J4F are to protect the friendly environment that we strive hard to achieve.

Bans..... How do they work ?
The Squad game operates three automatic levels of player banning:
(We have no control or input into any of these.)
We monitor problem players on the OffWorld Industries discord, adding selected reports to the J4F ban list.
Anyone who accumulates three or more bans on Just4Fun will be banned permanently from all our servers.
The community ban list - https://communitybanlist.com/ is a service that collects bans from multiple game servers and allows server owners to set weights against these bans - Current, expired, nature of ban, length, age etc.
J4F will assign our own criteria to players who have been banned on different servers and we may withhold access to our game servers for players with multiple and/or serious bans.
The easiest way to remedy this is to visit https://communitybanlist.com find which servers you have been banned on and appeal the bans directly with the banning organisations. If you get your bans removed or reduced then there is a good chance that our weighting system will allow you to join J4F servers.
You can appeal directly to us, but this will be more involved and require you to get the banning organisation to provide us with the information regarding your ban(s). We will treat each case on merit.
To find out what bans you have recorded against you visit https://communitybanlist.com/banned and enter your Steam ID - that will tell you which organisations have banned you and the status of those bans.
