A large scale website like Lawless Roleplay is an extremely complex site and the logistics of upgrading such a site from 2013 to 2020 code in an already established website like ours with high client demand is already an extremely difficult challenge. This challenge is then tripled considering the scale of the website. However, we have mitigated most of that complexity by pre-planning and pre-testing before deploying to the community. But as expected with any projects of this scale, there will be teething problems.

Below you will find a live changelog as we fix some of these teething problems. This topic is read-only so please discuss anything in our global announcement thread instead.

Ban appeals have fully migrated to our new ticket system which can be found here. This is a beta and if we deem that it doesn't meet our requirements we will revert back to form and thread system. Legacy ban appeal forums are visible for administrators only.

Current pending ban appeals have been migrated to our ticket system.
