Banning is the outmost action a moderator can take if a member violates the gameplay or forum rules. Usually members/players should talk to each other in a civil way and discuss their problems beforehand. If you need the help of a moderator when dealing with another member you can also use the mediations subforum.
Examples for being banned
A banned user can try to convince the moderators to take back the ban. The eMail address unbanme['at']obsrv['dot'].org has been created solely for this purpose. The earliest chance is 4 weeks after the ban has been set. Moderators will review the ban and vote on it. Then banned user will be informed about the result.
