    Im making a post since my comment was deleted and discarded without consideration.

    turmp joked around about using killaura, got banned and unbanned afterwards after explaining.
    I dont really see the difference in the two appeals.
    It comes off as some sort of "we are all equal but some more equal than others" type of thing aka bias and I wanted to see a staffs response on this.

    You aren't staff. You shouldn't be commenting on ban appeals if it isn't your appeal.

    If you read Trump's appeal you will notice that he understood what he had done and was apologetic for it.
    I was very clear about why he was banned and subsequently unbanned, and why it was such a serious issue.

    xporns appeal was entirely different, therefore it is not as such a simple comparison as you make it out to be.

    You know very well the rules about posting on other's ban appeals, do not do it again.

    yeah I realize that, which is why I made a separate post now.
    OK, I now understand that being apologetic in a ban appeal about joking about hacking is required to be accepted. thank you for responding and downvoting. I will make sure my faction never jokes about hacking again because the staff will ban us for it, have a nice day.

    It makes a major difference in how we deal with it when he insults our entire staff team in his appeal. Made him look like an asshole rather than actually sorry about what he did like Turmp was.

    Fair enough, might I suggest you change it from "
    Appeals for "apologies" or just admitting you did wrong will be instantly denied." to "Appeals for "apologies" or just admitting you did wrong will be denied unless we feel like accepting it." in order to clear up any further confusion?

    Obviously, admitting to hacks without it being obviously joke can waste the time of staff, and is confusing to the staff, and so it is bad to joke about hacks unless it is obvious that the admission isn't real. However, I still believe that the punishment for falsely admitting to hacks should be lesser than the punishment for actually having hacks. Having hacks is a much more serious offense in my opinion than wasting staff time, as wasting staff time has a minimal negative impact on the server, whereas hacking has a direct and big negative consequence, in that players might feel as though they've been cheated out of their gear if they died, or something along those lines.

    It is at our discretion, having a set in stone policy is idiotic. For the vast majority of appeals we instantly deny apologies, for what makes up 95%+ of our bans -eg. X-ray / PvP hacks there is never any chance of being accepted for an apology. This circumstance was exceptionally rare, only one other case comes to mind that we have accepted an apology.

    Just because your faction was affected, you're making a fuss. The player was toxic in their appeal, which we will begin extending bans for, from now on.

    Actually, my faction was not affected at all spalw. This person isn't in my faction and I don't know them, Good meme for you to think that. Not making a fuss, just wanted a staffs response on something.

    My mistake, I assumed that they were in your faction because the only other explanation is that you're just acting brain dead for fun, I should never have doubted you.

    Well, now you're just being a dick for no reason. I made this post to ask a question for staff feedback in regards to 2 ban appeals, not to receive toxicity from an owner. Please lock this thread to prevent further escalation from spalw

    That is not how this thread nor your respsonses came off at all.

    You had nothing to gain from this thread, and after we gave you an answer you replied with nothing helpful and were just ridiculing our response.

    It's hard to believe that you ever have good intentions, or are genuinely curious about any given topic considering how utterly toxic you are to everyone on the server and the lack of respect you have for staff.

    I apologise for mistaking the player for being in your faction. But this thread was entirely pointless and it only seemed like you were trying to make the staff look bad, when what you were saying wasn't a fair comparison.
