True, but if my memory is correct you were close to receiving a temp ban as you were also involved last time he was caught trolling users on the TS, so this isn't a first time for either or you and as the ban reason states - "You should know better."
We appreciate the addons you have contributed to the server however you must understand that this kind of behaviour is not tolerated within the community whatsoever, and if can't control your immaturity you will be punished, and when people ask why you're not a developer - I guess this will shed a little bit of light on why you're not apart of the team, you can't control yourself and you need to prove your maturity. (Assuming if you were even interested in the position)
Your (Appo) ban will be reduced to a 12 hour ban which is lenient considering this is not the first time we've had problems with you trolling, and obviously if it happens again your punishment will be more severe.
As for BK, he has only very recently came off a permanent ban for trolling/shittalking the community and has shown complete lack of respect and maturity since being unbanned, just by looking at his content history you can see that he can't help but make troll posts on the forums for attention and loves to waste people's time.
Evidence 1: See this thread for you reporting a random video for 'Nudity' and when asked why you reported it decide to respond with some complete troll answer which is wasting the forum staff's time
Evidence 2: Posting on this ban appeal for no reason claiming that the user was banned for 'hacking', despite knowing nothing of the situation and blatantly breaking the ban appeal reply rules mentioned here.
Evidence 3: This post where you decide it will be funny to shitpost on a thread which is discussing actual features that regiments would like to see and new ideas that Appo had made.
Then obviously the situation with tonight where you decided it would be funny to sit in the community owner's waiting room and upon being dragged into the channel then yell into your mic like a complete idiot along with Appo, and then joining the support channels where Frank and I joined and you two claimed to have donated $200 to join Navy and that you hadn't received your ranks, before then claiming that you thought this was another community and were 'on the wrong Teamspeak server'.
See this pastebin for logs.
But it didn't just stop there, Frank got off and you rejoined with new names, this time claiming to be map developers who want to make an improved version of the current RishiMoon map with better optimization, I play along and say that you need to get permission from the map creator on the workshop, not us. You then say that you can get permission from him but you want to know if we would pay you for the edits to the map, I ask you to provide some kind of proof of your work and you link me to a German steam account who hadn't been online in ~12 hours, not to mention your IPs were pointing to Australia and France, so I ask for proof that it's your account, you send me picture of a photoshopped/element inspector added button of 'Edit profile' on the account, I say that I require ACTUAL proof, make the account private temporarily and I'll see for myself, at this point you then realise you're beat and say that you guys no longer want to work with us as you see potential problems in the future and disconnect from the Teamspeak, meanwhile I ask Ridge for server admin on the TS3 so I can check your IP's with the guys who were messing with Martibo/Frank earlier to see if it's the same people - and sure enough it was. I then give the IP's to Ridge and he runs them through the forums, where they lead to both your accounts.
See this pastebin for logs.
You (BK) will not be unbanned, you can reappeal the ban in 1 month and try get unbanned then.
The ban was on behalf of myself, Ridge & Martibo, it was labeled as my ban as I provided the evidence/dealt with the situation - I also think it would be beneficial in the future if you wouldn't just assume everything and would stick to your own business if you weren't involved, this has caused issues in the past where you have (intentionally or not) spread lies about certain situations because you decided to get involved with something you had nothing to do with - getting factual information is fine, spreading mis-information publicly because you don't understand a situation helps nobody and only creates problems.
You should pay more attention to the ban appeal in the future, it was a ban appeal written for two different users who acted together, Appo was given a 3 day ban and BK was (re)permanently banned for the continued trolling since being unbanned and his past.
I don't see how you can respond to a ban appeal which you have barely even read with something like "You don't deserve a perma ban" when you haven't even given a chance for both sides of the story to be put forward, as a staff member this should be a priority when dealing with he said-she said situations.
