It's not necro-posting if it's related to the thread;"1. Digital Art - I recently got into doing digital art on Procreate. Mainly, I just (try to) draw realistic or semi-realistic portraits. I'd love to hear from and see the works of the other digital artists of CubTime!"
Appealing is always the most ideal way to get a punishment removed or shortened - if all else fails, of course, there's always Discord or even these forums that you can use to communicate.
And also, using signs to bypass your mute is punishable, so I definitely don't recommend it.
I hope all goes well and wish you luck on finding some other individuals for your base!
