Member Name MrHabanero Ban appeals are for when we have made a mistake, or there has been a significant change in the circumstances. These are the only reasons a ban appeal would be accepted. Appeals for "apologies" or just admitting you did wrong will be instantly denied. In Game Name: MrHabanero Length of Ban: 1 Day Nature of ban(ie, mine craft temp banned or TS3 perm ban) : Temp Banned Staff who banned you : Infamous Staff who dealt with you : Infamous Staff who have warned you previously : Infamous Reason for ban on record : Evading Mute Why do you think you were banned?(what you think the admins thought) : I was muted and subsequently used advert to circumvent said mute. What is your explanation of this reason? I was acting impulsively and thinking I was being funny in the chat, which was stupid on my part. I also believe that the admin who banned me was not in the best mood due to dealing with problems in chat for the past hour, and personally I feel that played into me receiving a quicker and harsher punishment. The mute originally placed on me was for spam, but only after I had said a certain # twice, not more than that. However, I was acting out of hand and I apologize. Why should we unban you? Personally, I feel a day ban is unjust. Going through the ban logs, I see people doing worse things such as staff disrespect and receiving temp bans for one hour. Nowhere on the forums is it mentioned that evading a mute is worth a day temp ban, and If I had seen that in the rules section of the forums or /rules, I would've never done so. Personally, I have never seen anybody recieve a day tempban for evading a mute either. I was impulsively sticking up for my friend. In hindsight, I understand why I was muted in order to prevent spam coming from other players who would join in on the #. However, banning me for a full day for circumventing the mute and using advert is not just in my eyes when people get shorter bans for doing worse things. I understand this is only a day ban, and I normally would've just ridden it out, but this is also my first offense and it is a weekend, the only time I have free time during the day. I am writing today to hopefully have my ban shortened, or my advert permissions rescinded, instead of a full days ban. What measures will you take to prevent this from happening again? If I had known I would've received a full day ban, I would have never gone ahead and abused advert in such a manner. Due to now knowing the punishment, I can assure you I will never abuse advert again or circumvent a future mute, if one does occur, but I can promise it will not. How can we trust you again? Hopefully, after this occurrence, we can come to mutual understanding that I now recognize my mistakes and my impulsive actions and that we can move forward. This is my first ban, and I promise you it will be my last. What else would you like to say to the admins who will review this case? I again apologize for ignoring your directive to drop the topic, and If I had known a full day tempban would've been a result, I would've never abused my advert. I am looking for an alternative course of punishment, whether that be a lessening of my ban or a permanent ban from using /advert. Again, I just feel like a day ban is a bit extreme for what I did, but I understand some punishment needs to be given. Rules are still broken even if you don't know that rule or punishment from breaking that rule exists, but I hope my ban can be shortened or my advert perms rescinded instead. I am sorry for acting impulsively, and hope this is the first and last ban appeal I ever create.
