Ban Appeal (Banned 22/02/18)

Recommended Posts

Foreword:

I’d like to apologise to the community and those directly affected by my actions that lead up to a just ban. I acknowledge the immaturity of my actions on the day of my ban. I do not play Garry’s Mod, at least not to the extent I used to. I put up this ban appeal in the hopes that I can make peace with those I’ve previously upset and occasionally visit the server that kickstarted my SWRP experience. Thank you for reading this thread.

Ban Details

(Insert a screenshot of the ban notice here)

814030862_HalfLifeSourceScreenshot2018_10.08-17_54_51_12.thumb.png.36fbde609fed2a5b6bd74e6ea264ad35.pngimage.thumb.png.e5fd709b43867893b6cf35a51365989d.png

How long was the ban for: Permanent

Which staff member banned you: Ridge banned me from the forums. I do not know who placed the ban for the server.

What date did the ban occur: February 22nd, 2018.

What was the reason for the ban:  “Advertising different server and attempt to poach players through PMs.”

Explain the situation in detail which led to you being banned: It was close to or the night in which Empire Gaming was released, & the forums were boiling over with tension. I inappropriately used Imperial Gaming’s Forum as a platform to push my agenda, through slandering the IG name and contacting my friend @Twinkie and asking if he would join Empire Gaming, a server which I had recently moved to from Imperial Gaming.

Why do you believe you deserve to be unbanned / given a second chance: I'm not sure I do. I fully understand my actions were out of line, and I feel the punishment appropriately fits the behaviours I displayed back in February. I'd like to be unbanned so I can occasionally join the server and say hello. One thing I can promise, you will see no more of the immature behaviour I displayed previously. I understand that my behaviours threatened the server in a pressing time, and it was selfish & inconsiderate.

it has been a while now and you do seem quite genuine with this appeal, it was a heated time I understand that even though i was away when it all happened and clearly you made some bad decisions. However in no way am i saying what you did was appropriate as it was a serious offense against the server and it's community but all in all i'm going to kick this appeal off with a +1 

Edit: clearly i don't know the full extent and from what people have been saying there was more to it, as i wasn't there at the time and i don't actually have a perspective i'm changing my response to a neutral so that it can be judged and a decision can be made by those that know more than me.

Gave away personal information on everyone in ISB back when I was in it. (You doxxed all of them, We cannot trust you after we gave you a position of trust, Which you broke?)

Advertised which is a basic rule not to be broken, which was a big arisen issue at the time.
I personally do not think you should be unbanned. I hope you can appreciate the reasoning behind this.

 

Thanks,

Welshy

-1 I have to agree with what @Welshy said.

To add to this when I was in ISB you also abused the trust we gave you by creating a copy of all ISB data and released it.

You're not wrong. I'd like to clarify though, to those who may not understand fully;

 

I was the secretary for ISB during 2017, in charge of basic administration of ISB & it's relevant regiments. ISB possessed a google document containing a plethora of files on tanks, weapons etc. In game, roleplay reports. (Made for fantastic reading). I shared the google docs specifically with the intent of giving friends (2 People) of mine (at the time) interesting in-game documents such as mission reports for SCAR. (In an OOC manner, though it could constitute failRP I suppose). I neglected to realise that I was also sharing personal information of users. I recieved a 3 day ban for this incident, and deleted all files in order to prevent member's information from being shared further.

There was no malicious intent behind this incident, I hope you can understand this. Thank you for commenting.

Apologies to @Katelyn @Pablo @Welshy @Jman1308 and any others that were affected by my actions last year.

I just want to point out, I don't know you, I'm glad I don't. This is because you were stupid enough to give a document with other peoples' information out to people who you didn't have your full trust in, and if you did, stupidly put your full trust into them.

I'll let you understand that quote on your own.

-1, What you have done is a disgusting. I don't wish to see you return to this community to plague it, no matter how genuine your apology is.

Yeah, that's wrong. No law against the accidental sharing of the email addresses, which is the only personal information I believe was shared.

You ruined your own image with your actions.

You're not wrong. However this was roughly 11 months ago, nearly a year. While that doesn't forgive what I did I think it's fair to say one changes a lot in such a time period.

That's true, I was indeed stupid enough 11 months ago to share files without first omitting the emails of those on the roster. Given that I gave it to Plutonic and Spin, 2 people I did have my full trust in and were fairly well trusted by the community it's fair to say I misplaced my trust.

I understood the quote well enough, it's a nice touch.

What I did was disgusting. I have apologized for it. Sometimes, all we can do is apologise and wait for time to heal old wounds. I don't think my return would be a plague to the community, such an incident would never happen again.

I may receive many downvotes for this, you may shake your head and dismiss what I have to say. I am simply taking the only actions I can to make amends for the mistakes of oneself close to a year ago.

Thank you all for your responses to my thread.

Just for you two, I'd like to clarify that this incident was 2 months (Correct if wrong management?) Before my permanent ban, and unrelated.

(Before you read just to let you guys know I am staff I just have not had my tag changed to Trail EM)

I knew you when you played on a different server. you were kind, fun and most of all my biggest influence I was gonna apply for EM on this server because of you. to think you dropped your EM tag just to get Forms mod was a big thing but

from what i have heard from everyone else though its a -1 from me

Hi Kix,
