    Ok, so I've noticed that people seem to not be trying very hard to get their guard applications and ban appeals look good. So I've decided to help all of you with guard applications and ban appeals. First off, let's start with some ground rules that you should follow if you want to get accepted.

    Guard Applications

    1: Do NOT say things like "I have noticed that guards are not doing very well in the server." or "There are not enough guards in the server." They make the guards on the server sound bad and will make it sound like you are telling the staff that they are bad at their job.

    2: Use proper grammar in your app. This I cannot stress enough. The Alphas and Wardens will read over your app and check various traits that make you fit for guard. Your grammar can say a lot about your age and your maturity.

    3: Make sure how you act in-game is fit for a guard. Acting immature and childish will make you look bad. Also in the rules, do not nag ANYBODY to read your app.

    4: Do not lie in your app. The Wardens have their ways of finding out your lies. If you lie about your age, the wardens will be able to tell by how you act in-game (I.e. swearing, jokes, skins, overall personality)

    5: Be mature about it. I cannot stress this rule enough either. The Wardens will not give a child guard because they asked for it. You have to be mature and take your job seriously. Always goofing off and not doing your job as a guard will get you a bad reputation.

    6: (This is not so much a rule, but more of information) The Alphas and Wardens will select guards by other things than just your application. You must be mature enough to handle guard. You must be active on the server. Your application must be of a good standard.

    Ban Appeals

    1: Do not spam your appeal. The Alpha/Warden that banned you will make the choice whether or not to unban you in their own time span. Do not repeatedly ask them to unban you or post your appeal again.

    2: Be mature about it. Same as guard, being mature is a big thing in ban appeals. If you make an appeal following like this "I was banned for false Xray" or "I was banned UNBAN ME NOW" You will be denied. The alpha/warden that banned you knows that their choice to ban you was not false. And I doubt they will unban somebody who is begging for it.

    3: Similar to the last rule, do not tell the alpha/warden that the ban was false unless you are positive that it was. They will almost definitely not unban you because they had a true reason to ban you. They would not ban you if it was false.

    4: Try to make it believable. Do not ask them to unban you, tell them that you are sorry and you have learned your lesson. (Just make sure that you are actually sorry. Also make sure you have your hacks uninstalled if you were hacking.)

    I will now give a demonstration application for both the ban appeal and guard application. These are just examples that you should try and use to make your app better.



    Guard Application

    1) Username: My username is _______
    2) Your age: (Do not lie here)
    3) How long have you been playing the server?(Minimum of 3 days) I have been playing on Convicted for ______ (Days, Months, Years)
    4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules? (Read the rules if you haven't already. There is some IMPORTANT stuff in there. Noakii said so)
    5) Any experience with the prison genre? (Yes if yes, No if no. Either one works)
    6) What is your time zone? My timezone is ______
    7) Why are you the best choice for guard? (1-2 paragraphs) Here is where you will get judged the most. Write a 1-2 paragraph summary of why you should be guard. Max is 4 if you want to put some effort into it. Make sure it is detailed and has good grammar and such. Do not lie here either.
    8) Do you understand that nagging Wardens in-game to read your app will result in immediate decline? All I can say here, is do not nag them.
    9) What is your current prison rank? Do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard?
    My current prison rank is (C, B, A, Elite, Free + Donor ranks) And then take a screenshot in-game incase you get accepted.

    Ban Appeal

    IGN: My username was ______
    Current rank on the server: My Current prison rank was (C, B, A, Elite, Free. Donations really don't matter here.)
    Reason you were banned: I was banned for ______
    Warden/Alpha that issued your ban: (N/A if you don't know) I was banned by (Warden/Alpha name/N/A)
    Approximate time of ban: (Include time zone) I was banned at (Time of ban. You may not know this, so just put an estimate of days/months) My time zone is (Timezone)
    Why you deserve to be unbanned: Make this area of the appeal a significant amount of length to show that you really do care about the server. Be mature and use proper grammar as well. Pour your heart out and make sure that you do not tell the server they falsely banned you or are horrible people for banning you.
    Any additional information: Tell them any additional information. Say sorry, tell them how you did it. Tell them that you will never do it again etc...

    These were meant for educational purposes and were teaching people how to properly write a ban appeal/guard application.

    Thank you.
    ~Ablakac


    I like it. :D Though might I suggest not putting donations in the What is your current rank? question on Guard Apps - some Wardens view it as you trying to buy Trainee and don't really care whether or not you've donated.

    Just the one suggestion I had, but it looks great overall. Good job abla. :3

    Nice job copying another players app. (Again) You've done this over 3 times, is it really that hard to think of your own? (The bolded parts are some that are copied) And pretty much your whole application is the same thing as Fusion's.

You should also let me be guard because I am a very experienced player I have been playing this server for 3 and a half years and I feel it's time that I should do something else in the server so I want to be a guard thank you for reading this application and I hope you accept!

    Quote from Ravensbrad59

    Guard Application:
    1) Username:Ravensbrad058

    2) Your age:22

    3) How long have you been playing the server? (Minimum of 3 days):A year and a half.
    4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules?:Yes I Have Read Over Them Many Many Many Times

    5) Any experience with the prison genre?:Yes I Do I've Played On Multiple Prison Servers And I Am Very Studoious toward the prison genre

    6) What is your time zone?:Eastern Time Zone

    7) Why are you the best choice for guard? (1-2 paragraphs):I think i will be a good guard because I want to clean up the prison and put the scum that think they can break our rules back in check . I will also have a lot more time now that I am out of school to be more active and really be there a lot to help the weaker prisoners stand a chance against the frees. I often see late in the night or early in the morning riots or just strong fights where often times its more than 1 person and there is only 1 guard and I sort of find it unfair that there is only one guard there to stand against that many people.

    I am good at pvp and i own opples and s4's and would be good in a fight vs a strong diamond set person. Ive read over the rules many times and would love to in force them on your server to the best of my abilities and get the pvpers and the people who think they can break our rules back in check. Also i have previous experience of guard on RoyalPrison and i know my responsibilities of guard and read the rules before and i would love to be Trainee, On RoyalPrison The Rules Are Very Similar. They have awarded me for being most active and best at pvp. But I love convicted and I think it is time to move on because I don't play that server that much convicted us the best and I want to be trainee. Thanks for considering me!


    8) Do you understand that nagging Wardens in-game to read your app will result in immediate decline?: I Do Understand Fully And The Last Thing I Want To Do Is Get A Deny On My App

    9) What is your current prison rank? Do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard?: I Am Currently Free Rank And When I Retire I Will Post A Picture Of My Current Rank. Noakii

    Quote from Ravensbrad

    1) Username: Ravensbrad058
    2) Your age: I am 14 and have alot of time to play in the morning and at night but night people need me more then in the morning.
    3) How long have you been playing the server? (Minimum of 3 days) I have played Convicted for over a year. I average around 5-6 hours a day. I have alot of freinds and no mortal enemies.
    4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules? Yes, I have read all three sets of rules and have seen them implemented by guards. A few days ago I noticed a new trainee who wasn’t moderating by the rules I was surprised he was accepted. He would hit anyone that came to close to him or would try and “arrest” people that killed him. I’m sure he knew the rules but just wasn’t implementing them. If I were a trainee I would know and understand the rules and also abide by them in game.
    5) Any experience with the prison genre? Other than my year on Convicted I’ve played on a few other servers, none of which I enjoyed as much as Convicted. I’ve seen people’s applications that can brag they’ve guarded for months, I can’t match their experience but I feel quite certain I can match them in dedication to this server. I’ve noticed trainees have been quitting because apparently it was not worth it, I would not quit for a long time.
    6) What is your time zone? Eastern Standard Time and I play 5-6 hours but if I was a guard I would dedicate alot of time like 7-8 hours.
    7) Why are you the best choice for guard? (1-2 paragraphs) I have several reasons why I would be the best choice for guard, here they are. I actually want to help the prison and am not just in it for the power or the BP. Some people believe that guarding or moderating isn’t fun and its more fun to riot but I disagree, I think that helping people is something fun and something Im good at I love the convicted community when I first joined alexisop was probably my best friend she showed me around and I think that's awesome but there's barely any guards on when there's about 30 people all rioting at C so I want to be the guard there to protect the C ranks that just want to get around. Also I won’t jail or kill someone just because I don’t like them, I will notice if they break a rule but I won’t jail them for walking like some guards do. I am very respectful. I also vote for the server everyday so that means something for me to go to your website and vote for convicted I just love the server so much!

    I am also really good at pvp I play lots of pvp servers out there. In trainee armor I will be very protected. My first action as a guard would be to go and try and defend the Cs from the never-ending freemen riot waves. I believe I would be a good guard and I hope everyone , even Noakii, will agree I was a good choice for guard.
    8) Do you understand that nagging Wardens in-game to read your app will result in immediate decline? Yes I understand that bugging a Warden in-game will result in immediate decline.
    9) What is your current prison rank? Do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard? My rank:free yes I understand but I'm not retiring anytime soon!

    Thanks for reading! I hope soon I’ll be able to say I’m a guard of Convicted!

    Guys, I've said this before on the server and I'll say it on here - REACH HACKS WERE PATCHED A LONG TIME AGO. Aimbot does NOT, nor CANNOT increase your attack range in regards to distance. It can allow you to hit people from behind, and to the side of you, but it cannot make it to where you can hit people 7-8 blocks away. That is attributed to lag, as was shown in Raged's first video.

    Quote from Beekeeper14


    1) Username: I3igMan.


    2) Your age: 15 but I turn 16 in July.


    3) How long have you been playing the server?( minimum of 3 days): I have been playing convicted 6 months.


    4) Have you read the server, prison, and guard rules?: Yes I have read all the server, prison, and guard rules many times.

      [*5]Any experience with the prison genre?: Yes convicted has inspired me to make a prison server too but I like convicted to much.

    6) What is your time zone?: My time zone is EST.


    7) Why are you the best choice for guard?: Firstly, why I think I would be a good choice for guard is that I would like to keep the killing of the newer players to a low. Because many c's are complaining that they are being killed just because they are defenseless against the frees. Many c's are quitting because they cant even get from the c bank to the c quarry without being killed. so I would like to prevent most of the c's from being killed. My second reason why I think I would be a good choice for guard is that I am good at pvp and I know the tricks of pvp.


    I also think I would be a good choice for guard is so I could protect the prisoners of c block from being killed or attacked and make sure that the killers/attackers are killed or punished. I also would like to make any prisoner like our server more and prevent them from wanting to quit. I personally think that prisoners quit because most guards do not pay attention to them if they are not free or have a title. but I will make sure that every prisoner gets the answer they want and I will not ignore them.


    Another reason I think I would be good for guard is that I want to make sure that the bad people are put in jail if they have been breaking rules and I will make sure that I report the news of a player on convicted breaking a server rule to Noakii or any other wardens. I don't like it when people break rules and I am sure no one else likes it either so I want to help keep people from making bad decisions.


    8) do you understand that nagging wardens in-game to read you app will result in a immediate decline? yes I am fully aware of this I am sure the wardens do not like it when there are too many people begging them to look at there app.


    9) what is your current prison rank? do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard? My current rank is free I have been free for 1 month. yes I understand that you will need a screenshot of this when/if I retire

    You did.

    Quote from kirosaka

    Thanks to all of the Alpha Guards and Wardens for taking a look at all of the recently and 5 days or older submitted ban appeals/Guard applications, your active service on this thread is doing every visitor a pleasure

    Jerky post about neglecting Wardens submitted
    Now we have to wait another 3 days


    Synonyms of neglect:
    disregard, ignore, pay no attention to, take no notice of, pay no heed to, overlook;
    disdain, scorn, spurn
    "don't neglect our advice"

    What I'm saying is that your assumption is incorrect; just because we don't reply to Guard Applications/Ban Appeals does not mean that we are neglecting them. There's an implied guideline that comes with the reposting rule: If 3 days have passed and it (your Guard Application/Ban Appeal) has not been accepted, you may consider it denied and repost it then.

    how do you get xp?


    Depends on what rank you are. A-Prisoners can easily get XP by using the Mob Farm (though I'm not sure if it has been fixed yet or not). Elites and Frees also use the Mob Farm for their XP needs a lot (non-Donors, since there is a Donor Mob Farm. All Donors may use this Mob Farm. Non-Donor Elites have access to Tunnel Quest, which is a parkour area where they may receive 30 levels upon completion. Frees have access to many more quests, and Donors more than Frees.

    Quote from King_Charles_

    1) Username: King_Charles_

    2) Your age: 15

    3) How long have you been playing the server? (Minimum of 3 days): I have played on this server for about eight months.

    4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules? Yes I have read the rules. Nokaii

    5) Any experience with the prison genre? I play on Savage Prison server in addition to Convicted

    6) What is your time zone? Eastern Standard time

    7) Why are you the best choice for guard?
    I believe that I would be the best guard for many reasons. Firstly Because I enjoy helping people. When I was new to the server everyone made me feel at home. SDAngel showed me around and helped me get started in the tree farm. No other server has ever made me feel so welcome. The first time I went on Savage Prison no one would acknowledge my existence. On Convicted it was like I was part of the family. I would enjoy welcoming new players the same way I was welcomed.
    I also think I would be good because I am a nice person. One of my favorite things about this server is how everyone is so nice. When I first started I was astounded at the admins on this server. Previous admins on other servers ignored me and even killed me for talking to them. Nope not on Convicted. The guards and players here are mostly friendly. I would like to be one of those guards so I could show the same kindness to others.
    I am pretty good at PVP. I play on servers such as Project Ares and Squadcraft a lot. I also play a lot of mini games such as The Survival Games or The Walls. These servers and games have helped me vastly improve my PVP. I believe I would be able to hold my own against most prisoners, especially if I had other guards to help.
    I think I would also be good as a guard because I am a trustworthy person. I try to be honest at all times. I will not abuse my power as guard.
    I am a dedicated and hard working person. I will stick with guarding, even if it becomes difficult. So don’t expect me to retire anytime soon.
    Now I would like to address some concerns that people may have about me being a guard. Many guards know me as a pest. I admit that I used to spawn fist and attack guards repeatedly. I assure you that I have matured and no longer spawn fist. Also another issue is inactivity. I will try to be active as much as possible. As a highschool freshman I might not be able to be on all the time, but I can be on for a good amount of time.

    9) What is your current rank? Do you understand that we will require PROOF of your rank when/if you retire from guard? My rank is Free. I understand that proof will be needed.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my application. I hope that I can soon join the ranks of Convicted Guards. If you have any criticisms please post. I need all the help I can get

    Metaphore for please look at the ban and guard appeals, the ban and guard appeals from the past WEEK are piling up.

    Or make a forum on the official MC convicted weebly site since it is alot easier to maintain Guard and ban appeals that way.


    Just because they were not replied to does not mean that they were ignored.

    Builder1028 have you reviewed my ban?


    Soon, however not quite yet.

    Edit: Yes, the ban was legitimate; your account was banned on July 15th. Perhaps you have a sibling/friend who has access to your account? Either way, your account was used to X-ray and was permanently banned as a result. If you have any other alternate Minecraft accounts, you may feel free to join Convicted on that.
