Hello. I will keep this thread visible as no one was named yet, but will close comments. Such cases should not be appealed publicly as it quickly can lead to the mentioned witchhunting.
Please feel free to appeal the mute either via the Modmail bot on the official Discord server (https://discord.com/invite/mordhau), via the "Message a Mod" on this subreddit or via the [email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) e-mail. Please provide your PlayfabID (obtained with the "copyID 1" command in the console in-game) in relations to the mute and the unedited screenshots pertaining to the claims of moderator abuse.
I would like to make it clear that we do not mute or ban for playing as a bard. During the halloween event moderators were given some leniency with spawning moderator-only items to add to the spirit. This has since been toned down.
