If some day, your account get banned (temporary or permanent), you will get a message that highlighted in Red. The message of ban reasons and guide steps will be different from case-to-case.
There is one of them (that I took from one of ban appeal topic)
Quote
Sorry A, you are banned from posting or sending personal messages on this forum.
You have been banned by a forum moderator. You may appeal here: banappeals-w6pquw43@theymos.e4ward.com.

So, if it is your case, and it is your bad day, what should you do?

Please do it with following steps:
  • Reading forum rules & remembering your past posts
  • Self-checking your past posts for plagiarism
  • Creating ban appeal topic & Avoiding ban evasion
  • Bumping that topic periodically

1. Reading forum rules & Remembering your past posts
Remember that when you get banned, it is obviously that you most likely made something wrong, and violated forum rules. Your ban mostly come from your rule violations, so the first step you should do is finding and reading forum rules!

Please don't do anything else, except this step.
Unofficial list of (official) Bitcointalk.org rules, guidelines, FAQ
Reading all rules carefully, reading repeatedly to really understand them; then try to remember whatever things you made in the past likely violated one of those rules.
If you actually remembered you did something wrong, it's good. Now, the second step to come.


2. Self-checking your past posts for plagiarism
You should do this before moving to the third step. Because it is your case, so you have a responsibility to self-check all of your past posts to find out that you actually plagiarised or not. If the self-check results show you actually plagiarsised, and if you did not contribute anything to the forum in the past, your story should stop in the second step.
Please copying and pasting each of your past posts into Search Box of Google Search, then enter. You finally will find your plagiarism in the past.
It might take you half of a day to finish your self-check.

3. Creating ban appeal topic & avoiding ban evasion
Creating an account with a name like: A-banappeal / A-meta, something like this. With A is your account name.
Then, using the account to create a topic in Meta board, and create a good title.
Something like:
Quote
Ban Appeal: My account (A) got temporary / permanent ban. Please check!
Then posting your banned account. Someone tend to hide their banned account, they create ban appeal topic without account name, and link to account profile. It is one of the worst thing to do, because you need help, but you actually let others have to ask you for more details, and wait for your replies. I don't think they (staffs, and forum members) will feel comfortable with that.


Warning!
  • Create only one account, with good title, and present as detailed information of your ban (in the OP) as possible.
  • Don't hide anything because you need help. So, if you actually remembered you did something wrong, please post link to bad posts that likely caused your ban (in your perspective). It will save a lot of time of forum staffs, and members.
  • Only do all your appeal efforts with one account, and in only one topic. Open multi topics or using multi accounts to do this will result in ban evasion.



Avoiding ban evasion
Yeah, we understand you... But please, warn your brothers, and friends that you've used this account to report your case in Meta, and that they can never use this account on the other boards anymore... Thank you...

25. Ban evasion (using or creating accounts while one of your accounts is banned) is not allowed.[e]

25. If you get banned (temporarily or permanently) and create a new account to continue posting / sending PMs, it's considered ban evasion. The only exception is creating a thread in Meta about your ban.

He has several accounts all banned for ban evasion. It seems that the underlying offense which caused him to initially get into trouble (and often the thing which causes his alts to get noticed) is excessive multi-posting. But when he was warned and/or temporarily banned for this minor thing, he kept evading his bans. This forum cannot operate unless its few rules are followed, so ignoring the warnings and temporary bans that you receive and continuing to do the same stuff is unacceptable. People who do so are not welcome here.

His bans will not automatically expire, and any future alts we see from him will be permabanned. I may manually reconsider his ban if he promises to actually try not to break forum rules. The rules are not meant to silence anyone, but to keep the forum usable and fair. When someone multi-posts excessively, it monopolizes a thread in a way which harms everyone else's ability to communicate. Based on his posts in this thread, I think that he will just continue to break rules if unbanned, so I will not unban him at this time.

4. Bumping periodically to get attention
You already have the attention of a Global Mod (hilariousetc).  Unblocking your ban is something only Admin can do.  All you can really do is send an email to the address you have for ban appeals, bump this thread periodically and hope for the best.
However, you should (again) pay your attention to not break another rule by pumping your ban appeal topic. It means users have rights to bump each topic once per 24 hours, but they have to delete previous bump before start a new pump each day. Personally, I don't support the idea to bump topic each day, maybe 3 or 7 day per bump is enough to catch attention.
13. Bumps, "updates" are limited to once per 24 hours.[2]

21. Old bumps should be deleted. [2]

Quote
4. Bumps are limited to once per day (24 hours), yes this includes "updates", that's what the edit button is for. Old bumps should be deleted as they serve no purpose, and only clutter up topics and make it more annoying to read.


Prevention is better than ban appeal
Paying attention on your daily deleted shitposts. If your shitposts deleted, and you received delete message, please seriously consider about your posting habits, and change it to avoid bans.
These are shitposts, and probably contributed to why this account got banned. I'm not saying that's the only reason, but I'm sure it didn't help their case. Here's another one:
Quote
Opps thats awesome post , full of information.


These types of posts are deleted on a daily basis, and if the user didn't take this as a warning and continued to post these sort of responses then they could of been banned for it. Generally, these types of posters normally copy and paste at some point too, but you'll have to wait for a response from a moderator to find out the exact reason.


Some thing else
Ownership of orignal posts:
It was probably banned for copy and pasting. People obviously shouldn't be banned for sharing their own original articles but it should probably be noted that you originally posted it elsewhere and provide the source. Are your articles 100% original? Seem to get a few hits on google from other sources:

A few people have their bans removed for numerous reasons. It's not plagiarism if it's your own work and if you can prove that then the ban should be lifted in those cases.

I unbanned it. Please make sure you leave a note and source at the top or bottom that it has been published elsewhere in future.

By the way, I would like to remind you that if you do ban evasion, you might appear there:
[Report] Ban Evasion [Requesting Admin/mod to check those and ban]
I don't think you have interests to be there.

Perhaps it would also be good to stress that bans are really very rarely reversed.

Short temporal bans are probably better to let them run through, and make the best of the time understanding the motives and reflecting upon how to avoid recurring in the future. I’ve barely seen any temporal ban appeals – perhaps an odd couple recently related to the frozen Yobit campaign.

I’ve seen a few permanent bans reversed (two or three at most in a year), and those were under the aurora of either extremely compelling evidence (a setup case) or old-timer net positive accounts that got their account unbanned, but retaining a signature ban over an extended period of time.

What does happen time and time again, is that appeals crop-up on Meta, with a sheep’s skin disguise, only to be unmasked time and time again by forum members that provide evidence of the account’s wrong doing, being that more often than not plagiarism or alt accounts breaking the rules of participation.

Those permanent bans with years of signature disabled mostly come from theymos.
My account has been banned....
Quote
The fact that you got sig banned as well probably means that it was theymos who issued the ban. You could try PMing him I guess - not much the rest of us can do here. As for the plagiarised post, it seems to have already been deleted (either by redsn0w as he claims or by theymos).

There's been no policy change. redsn0w wasn't permanently banned due to several factors which made me think that permabanning him would be a net negative for the forum. Nobody is banned strictly because of "the rules"; it's always handled case-by-case, but almost always, plagiarists deserve to be permabanned.

If you think that a ban should be ended, make your case in a new topic from a "good for the forum as a whole" perspective.

This forum has many non-official rules but only two of them are taken very seriously and I dont think it should be that hard to remember them. Dont spam and post off topic replies and dont copy and paste. It really is that simple, dont copy and paste! And if for some reason you need to copy something always provide the source or at least make it clear from your post that you saw or read the copied part somewhere and it is not yours.

Bump
This Can be considered as spamming you already made a great post and it would be viewed so there is no need bumping the thread again it's only going to rise the wrong suspicion

I don't think so instead your post could be the one to be considered as spam or off topic reply since it has nothing to do with the topic of discussion on this thread. Bumping isn't against the forum rule, it's only recommended to bump once every 24hrs and delete your previous bump post. If you would had read the OP you would had seen this. The bump post is coming 24hrs after OP waa posted so no issue here.

Back to topic: Just as DdmrDdmr have said, I don't see a  point appealing your ban especially when you know you're at fault for either commiting plagiarism, spamming the forum or ban evasion. The moderators are 99.9% of the time never wrong. You appealing your permanent bans is just waste of time especially when you're not been framed. Not knowing the forum rules isn't an excuse.

Bump

To be honest your post would be consider as a spam like CryptopreneurBrainboss already said. Bumping thread on every 24 hours isn't spam or against forum rules. Just need to be careful about previous bump and previous bump should be deleted.

However, I have not seen very much ban appeal that successfully resolved. Although few special case solved by moderators and admin. I believe moderators are handling ban issue very carefully and there is very less chances for mistakes. If moderators ban by mistake then there is chance for unban successfully. Otherwise there very low chances for remove ban.

So prevention is better than cure. We should know forum rules and should be follow. That's the way how could we avoid ban form forum. But you can appeal since forum gives you oppurtunity, but don't expect unban if you aren't legit enough.

Today, I added this part into OP. Please read and remember don't do ban evasion. Only open a single topic for your Ban Appeal in Meta board, and stick with only one topic to aks for investigation, and appeal.
By the way, I would like to remind you that if you do ban evasion, you might appear there:
[Report] Ban Evasion [Requesting Admin/mod to check those and ban]
I don't think you have interests to be there.

Due to loads of Ban Appeals in Meta board recent days, I updated OP with this part:
2. Self-checking your past posts for plagiarism
You should do this before moving to the third step. Because it is your case, so you have a responsibility to self-check all of your past posts to find out that you actually plagiarised or not. If the self-check results show you actually plagiarsised, and if you did not contribute anything to the forum in the past, your story should stop in the second step.
Please copying and pasting each of your past posts into Search Box of Google Search, then enter. You finally will find your plagiarism in the past.
It might take you half of a day to finish your self-check.

I would like to leave a note that to make your appeals right, please notice to make your appeals' titles right. There is official ban message of bitcointalk.org forum (that is shown in the below quote block). Recent days, I have seen many threads with titles like [UNBAN APPEAL], that is somehow distracted from official guide of forum.
I would like to suggest users how want to make appeals, please use the title as "[Ban Appeal] xxxxx".

After creating your ban appeal, you can post link to your ban appeal topic here: ✅[BAN APPEAL] Total list + Unban process (Need feedback from Global mods); and please remember to follow the guide and application form presented in the OP of that topic.
