Background information: This is my second appeal and it'll differ from my one here: http://imperialgamingau.invisionzone.com/topic/3162-banned-for-no-reason/
Explain the situation in detail which led to you being banned: I had decided to log onto the server to have some fun and play for a bit (Before when I had played on the server, me and a somewhat friend from another server had seen each other on this server and eventually joined to same regiment). I walked around for a bit and acquainted myself with a few familiar names and then came across the particular person previously noted. In what I now know as a selfish and narcissistic act, I began to ask this person if he would like to hop back onto the old server with me. He declined with a nice manner saying he had switched which I took in but decided like a stupid person to proceed and ask again a few times. This went on for about half a minute, and then I took myself away and decided to mingle with others. However when I went to others I did not ask them to join to a different server or even talk about anything server related. I saw the same person I had persisted to ask before post in the comms that he was holding tryouts for Vader's Fist (No screenshot sorry). I decided what would soon be a huge mistake but also at the time a funny joke was to send him a !p message saying "Join back to SERVER" (SERVER meaning the other one we had played on together before, do not want to mention because it adds nothing) (See picture below). I was totally out of line and overstepped my boundaries when I sent this message and I want the person reading this to know that I understand what is wrong with this and why it won't be done again in the future on any server. I was swiftly picked up and taken to a sit with Grand Moff (See below). Straight up he came to me in a friendly manner and asked if I knew what advertising was. I replied with Yes and that I had not advertised. I said this believing that advertising would be posting a link or spamming chat/voice chat with links, names, servers ect. My naive self thought that my selfish acts didn't count as advertising, which I now see totally fits in with the reason to why I was banned. Whitey told me to wait patiently whist he went and talked to the person I !p'd. In their exchange I was randomly coloured blue with a tool gun and my game froze. I have no idea who coloured me but some supporting evidence is my Private message on discord to someone I saw playing on the server before (See below). Of course watching an accused person leave when faced with allegations of such acts looks extremely guilty so I was quickly banned for Advertising and Lying to Whitey about this situation.
Why do you believe you deserve to be unbanned / given a second chance: Since my last appeal I have thought about what I have done, Why I shouldn't of done it, and how I made the person I aimed my messages/chat towards. I understand the reason for the ban. I understand why acts such as this is completely not allowed and a bannable offence. Apart from being selfish/self centred, the only reason I thought this was remotely was okay was due to our previous encounters. I had not factored in his choices and preferences, and due to this overstepped and violated his personal choice. I'm inquiring about a ban update to a shorter ban or an unban and being on a behaviour type of list ( meaning if I make a mistake like getting warned or doing another bannable act I'll be banned straight away. If you have any questions or queries feel free to ask in the comment section below. Once again I apologies for my actions and have decided to take this in as a learning opportunity.
