    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 I am writing today to hopefully have my ban shortened, or my advert permissions rescinded, instead of a full days ban.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.

    You have a history of abusing the /advert system and ontop of that you said the exact message I warned and muted you for in the advert. Appeal denied

    Personally Infamous, you are the exact staff I am referring to when I say you were clearly pissed off this morning for other reasons that don't include me and I think that played into you delivering a heavier ban. How is a day ban possibly justified when you have people like BusinessmanB0b getting banned for only an hour for staff disrespect and people like DurbarAkbar getting banned for only 30 minutes for cop logging, things that are arguably more serious. I don't understand how a day ban is justified, and I would really much prefer for a different staff member who doesn't have a grudge to address my case. I think you have a clear bias and have had a bad day and should rescind yourself from my case. I am asking for a reduction of the time, or a permanent ban on my use of advert. I don't see how those don't make sense, or how a permanent ban on my /advert wouldn't arguably be worse. I have one case of abusing /advert and my punishment history on the server is otherwise pretty clean, with only two warnings before today, none of which relate to advert. You muted me after I said a message only twice and you called it spam, when truly a message sent twice shouldn't even be considered spam. I acted impulsively in reaction to the mute and I apologize, but this still isn't worthy of a day tempban.

    In regards to the quote in black you posted, I do believe staff made a mistake here by delivering a heavier ban than deserved. Thanks for your time.

    Infamous muted you after telling the entire chat to stop spamming which you joined into and were muted as you ignored the warning and got muted for 5 minutes. then adverted unmute Jewbait which was the spam that was going on in main chat. Obviously there was intent there and you were only muted for 5 minutes but couldn't help yourself and continued on what you were muted for as well as abusing your advert. Your ban will be staying, if you feel this is unjust you can find another server to play.

    Man I love this server, I am not even asking to be unbanned as I understand the need for punishment, I am just asking for my ban to be shortened to be more in line with other punishments that are clearly worse, punishments that you yourself have delivered GoodChum. I mean look at a ban you just delivered hours ago against bxarr, he was demoted for kill aura and somehow that isn't even a day ban. It was clearly an impulsive and wrong decision and I understand that, but in what world is staff disrespect worth one hour and cop/combat logging worth 30 minutes and using Kill Aura worth 18 hours but circumventing a mute with an advert worthy of a day ban. I mean, in the rules on the forums block glitching is mentioned and I notice in the warnings section people have recieved ONLY WARNINGS for behavior like that. I feel like a day tempban is definitely extreme, and punishment against other players kind of supports my theory that there was some sort of bias that resulted in a heavier ban. This behavior will not occur again, and I am sorry again.
