No! TRP is in no way affiliated with Twitch.tv.
Sometimes applications are approved the day they are sent in. Sometimes it takes months. We look at different things when approving people. If a game server is full for a certain time slot, then we will be looking at applications from a certain timezone. If a server is completely full during all time slots then we will not be approving any applications until we see a drop in population. This is to ensure a healthy population at all times, and to prevent super massive queues. We do whitelist people that have zero RP experience. Everyone has to start somewhere! However
Our ban process typically involves a person being banned on our servers. Once banned the Admin team will reach out to discuss the situation. If your ban is found to be permanent we do have an appeal process. You can send in an appeal message by using our report form. Typically we ask that you wait at least one month before doing this.
