Member Name Spears 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: iSpears Length of Ban: Permanent Nature of ban(ie, mine craft temp banned or TS3 perm ban) : "DDos Threats" (Extended to permanent ban this map even though it happened last map) Staff who banned you : jrd3044 Staff who dealt with you : Staff who have warned you previously : Reason for ban on record : Ddos Threats Why do you think you were banned?(what you think the admins thought) : I was banned for saying "I'll give my friend your ip" while joking around with a guy in chat. What is your explanation of this reason? Last map, I was joking around with a guy in chat, and said: "I'll give my friend your IP". Glucose and another helper told me not to make jokes like that, then Lurnn permanently banned me. I was aware that making ddos threats against the server is bannable, but I honestly had no idea that I couldn't make any sort of "ip" joke no matter how obvious it is that I'm joking. This happened 1-2 weeks before the reset, then when the map reset jrd3044 permanently banned me for this map. Why should we unban you? I made an honest mistake and I understand and respect the punishment I received originally, however, I think it's unfair that I was banned for the entirety of this map. I talked to Lurnn about it, and he told me that to prevent people from breaking the rules at the end of the map knowing all bans reset when the map resets, some bans are extended even further than the 2 weeks post reset. Although I understand these bans, I don't think my ban extension corresponds to what I did. What measures will you take to prevent this from happening again? I've been taking steps to become less toxic, and I've learned that however funny I might find something, it is best not to make dark/threatening jokes when other people are around. In addition to those steps, I will DEFINITELY not mention anything related to IPs or DDOSing again. How can we trust you again? I spent all of last summer playing with (primarily) Chlustin (girlfriend) and liamft123 (one of my best friends) and a bit with my sisters. I bought the Summer Drug Pass (hyped for this summer woot woot), and I plan to continue investing a lot of time and money (unfortunately) into playing on this server if I were to be unbanned. I would like to make it clear that I have never had any intention of breaking the rules because as I have said before this has been my favourite server for over a year now. We are all going to University next year and won't have any time to play Minecraft together, so this summer really is our last "Hoorah" or whatever. I promise them and you (staff) that I will not do anything more to jeopardize our last "Minecraft Summer" together. What else would you like to say to the admins who will review this case? Thanks for taking the time to read this, and consider lifting this map's ban. If there's anything you need, pm me on discord @SPEARS#9662.
