    I completely agree! I think it is very unfair that I could get permanently banned from all public server without the chance getting unbanned, and it would carry over to not being able to play on private realms with friends? It just doesn’t make sense. The lack of an appeal process is very concerning

    The punishments are too harsh to players.

    I believe that the punishments are too harsh for players, if you get banned then you should only be banned from where you got banned from, not Minecraft as a whole and there should also be requests for unbans as players realize their mistakes and shouldn't be held accounted for something they've done years ago. There is also a bug with universal bans in which a lot of Playstation 4 players are getting banned for no apparent reason, including myself. Please Fix this and let us request and reason to have our accounts back because enforcing punishments this harsh with minimal offense is unfair.

    It’s way to harsh. I got banned for typing “YOU SHOULD HAVE DIED” in rage after dying as the murder in murder mystery. I got banned for THAT. typing in all caps is unnecessary to enforce this much.

    I am a person who got banned because I was swearing in my private realm chat with my friends. Now I can no longer do anything on minecraft but play alone. I think it is really dumb you get banned even if you are the owner of the realm you choose to swear on.

    I was Banned out of nowhere, I wasn't given a reason and they are saying its irreversible. I haven't even played Minecraft in weeks how could I get banned for now playing. We all payed for this app and getting banned with no warnings is ridiculous.

    We should at least get a warning about getting banned because I didn't even know bans where a thing and I talked to some of the people off discord and they said that saying a little joke is criminal offense and also why ban us from the whole game when it should just be the server.Also why can’t we get like 7 day bans instead of perm bans.

    I got banned for literally no reason and I currently have no way to appeal the ban or recover anything related to it. I think it's ridiculous that I've been banned with no reasoning, no warning, not even potential for an appeal, or a notification telling me I've been banned until I try to log in and I receive the message telling me I've been banned. It's nonsense that this is viewed as okay by Microsoft and I deserve my account and realms back because I thought about anything I could've possibly done to get banned and there's literally no reason for me to have been banned. This is ridiculous and I sure hope Microsoft fixes what they did or else more people are going to suffer the same way I did and there's no need for this INTENTIONAL feature where players can only be banned permanently with no appeal exists it's ridiculous and needs to be fixed.

    I honestly agree with this comment. I'm one of those people who have been banned for basically existing. I got bored of playing the game in early December, and haven't played since 12/21/20. I log into my Microsoft account, ban message. I really wish bans can be reverted and/or appealed for. I'm actually looking forward to playing this, but now Microsoft just made it way harder.

    I got no reason, I was just banned for logging on. I had just spent 100+ dollars of my own money getting minecraft for my friends for christmas, and I cant even play a private LAN? I have been playing minecraft since 2011 and have spent countless hours on this game. Please fix this.

    This shouldn't even apply to servers. What about anarchy servers or servers that intend for an older audience to play instead of kids? If someone said something offensive simply block them and move on with your day. Plus if the server owners are paying for the servers shouldn't they make their own rules?

    This is stupid. We should at least get a warning or only get banned for a certain amount of time. This is so unfair to us. Please fix this now.

    This whole ban system is stupid! I believe that server owners should do whatever they want and that  anarchy servers should be allowed. The thing Mojang doesn't realize is that the multiplayer community is more on the mature side of Minecraft. So what if someone called you a name, I wouldn't want to take revenge and scam them out of 30 bucks. That goes against my morals and I don't agree with it AT ALL. Plus if you're paying for a server/realm shouldn't you have the authority to do what you want. "No one can tell you what you can or cannot do"(Minecraft trailer 2011). 

    It gets worse, on top of that all the featured servers basically went by the same rules. So to young kids who only played featured servers they were COMPLETLEY SAFE before this. Now scummy servers like lifeboat which has been exposed for treating their staff members badly and shutting down ideas and Mineville city which re branded to a roleplay server to make a quick buck. CONGRADTULATIONS!!!!!! Now you can be SILENCED FOR SPEAKING OUT!!! These scummy servers make you pay for stuff you can get on Java servers and non featured servers. If you want to play prison go to a server vote website for bedrock instead of supporting these selfish companies which manipulate their young playerbase.

    I really doubt Mojang/Microsoft studios will ever see this. But if you are reading this Mojang please reconsider this system. Also crack down on Mineville city WHICH IS BREAKING THE EULA!!! I hope this community can be fixed.

    This is needed, and honestly, the fact that it exists makes me a little bit scared: does my dedicated server have a backdoor in it? And there is also the issue of private servers: if I have a server, but then a Minecraft moderator uses their backdoor to log onto it even without me allowing it and thinks someone has broken the rules, then you are banned from all servers, including playing privately with your friend.

    This also brings the issue of security: if there is a backdoor in EVERY Bedrock Edition server and client, don't you think someone will try to use it?

    VOTED!

    The universal ban that microsoft calls "safer" isn't making people feel safe, a lot of people feel unsafe about this, why would i get banned from the whole game if what i did was accidentally misspelled something and it became a bad word? why should i be banned for "cheating" in a server where cheating are specifically allowed by the servers rules? This whole microsoft moderation team is making the individual server moderators/owners look like the leader of a kids group who is watched by their parents.

    If microsoft insist to make the universal ban a real thing, they should allow negotiation, they should allow appeals from support.

    An idea is to have the server owners/moderators specify which rules they want to opt in and opt out, for example in anarchy servers the owners may not want hate speech, but want to allow cheating etc.

    Another idea is to make the universal bans temporary bans, for example lets say you broke the rules once, you get banned for a week, you broke the rules again after you were unbanned up that to a month, and for some reason you didnt learn your lesson and decide to break another rule, up that to half a year, and so on

    Well I would say that I want the bans to be temporary or permanent depending on the level of atrocity of the players' behavior.

    I was never banned because I behaved well in minecraft online, but I do say that banning players for nothing is stupid.
    I think they should change permanent bans to temporary bans of at least 14 days, but permanent bans continue to exist, what's more, I think they should permanently ban players depending on the atrocity of their behavior ...

    OH MY GOD YES. I got banned temporarily for hate speech when I usually never say anything in chat and it's never hateful. Now I have to play alone, like I used to

    I am very concerned about this as well. I need very clear communication from the devs on the matter and for Mojang to address these concerns. Not all Minecraft players are children. There needs to be a way for private players to be safe from chat censorship and global banning when hosting multiplayer.

    Ever since Microsoft purchased Mojang it has gone downhill as Microsoft has continued to remove power from the minecraft community and replace it with power in their own hands and systems highly flawed, which has led to the end of minecraft, Restore control to the community!!! Give us back our privacy and power!

    Instead of client-side stuff like this, it should instead be maybe a standard of rules on every server. Servers have been able to manage the community for years - why can't they keep the responsibility? 

    Bans like this is too harsh. Remember, WE PAID FOR THE GAME. It's like buying a pizza but then you have been given it for 1 second and then taken away. Wouldn't that make you file a complaint against the shop? Wouldn't that make you demand a refund?

    Isn’t it a breach of contract as when we buy game it doesn’t / did not say that you could get permanently banned from all multiplayer, but for 11 years servers have been moderated by the owners with great success and mojang has not done anything substantial to the Servers up until now with this update which no one wants.

    as a member of the java community we can police ourselves, we have done so for many years, each report NEEDS a defined reason, or this will end up being the worst decision to make and sales will fall like the walls of jericho

    Just one bad thing you do, and you can get permanently banned. And it makes no sense, and is really unfair. It won’t let you access servers, worlds, realms, or marketplace content. Imagine you bought stuff from the marketplace and you don’t even get refunded! I feel bad for other people who just want to have a fun time.

    The fact that Microsoft/Mojang actually implemented this shows how out of touch they really are with their playerbase, morality, and reality.
