Please don't derail the thread. This is about the policy review, not being banned from chat. Also, only chat moderators can ban. Since your only contributions in chat were trolling, I believe the ban was fair. If you don't believe it's fair, you may request to be unbanned in ESB:Chat ban reviews but derailing a thread to talk about that will only make it worse.
The News Team coming back intrigues me and I'm excited to see who will win the contest.
