How long was the ban for:

What date did the ban occur:
Six or seven months ago, I'm not entirely sure.
What was the reason for the ban:
Explain the situation in detail which led to you being banned:
As some of you may know, I've had a long history with/on this server. Throughout the last two years, I've been many things both in roleplay and out of it, whether it be a staff member, user, donator and so forth. I can say for sure I've enjoyed almost all my time on Imperial Gaming, though my late actions show otherwise. I want to say that I first connected to the server with scripts near the end of Empire Gaming's first server, I joined the Death Troopers under Trigon as the DT CMDR and Lincoln as Director Krennic. I spent some time in this role (2 weeks?), my activity was off and on. I used everything from aimbot, ESP, b-hops and the ability to see admin commands somehow (didn't actually know that was a thing until later). None of which I tried to hide and was quite blatant with at the time. I eventually made it to MSGT in Death Troopers, soon after I was pulled into a management meeting (Wolf, Whitey, Ridge, Moose, and Guskywalker) where I was confronted about cheating on the server. I came clean to Wolf and admitted what types of cheats I was and was not using. After the meeting, I was banned from Teamspeak and I assume the Garry's Mod server upon the management's decision. During the next six to seven months I stayed quiet amongst the Star Wars RP community and took a needed break from the game. As of today, I logged onto the server expecting to be greeted by a ban message but instead, I successfully logged onto the server somehow. I spoke to @Shields about what the situation was and asked him to contact someone who could reach a member of management to see if this was purposeful or not. I was told it was accidental and I was meant to stay banned but I was given the opportunity to appeal by @Born and/or the management team.
Why do you believe you deserve to be unbanned/given a second chance
There's no excuse or reason that could justify or rationalize what I did. I understand I broke the server's rules, so the best I will try to do is explain what went through my mind at the time.
During the time where I was cheating on the server, I had become bored and frustrated with playing Garry's Mod as a whole. Because of this, I ended up taking it out on the server and some of its players. Because of my decision to minge around with my cheats without thinking of others, I may have ruined the experience for other people, and because of my actions, the community rightfully removed and banished me.
These past 6-7 months away from Garry's Mod, I have learned that it wasn't the game I was frustrated with, but the number of hours that I was devoting to it. But that doesn't excuse my actions. I know and understand why the rules are in place. I understand many players in this community may shun, reject or even hate me for what I did, which they have every right to do so. I disrespected the rules and players of this community by breaking them for my own personal gain. Please understand that I did not use these cheats maliciously as other users in the past have done. I did not use these to try to crash the server at any time. I have also been truthful with @Shields and the management team in my limited time on the server earlier, and that when I was interviewed, I didn't attempt to lie or sugar coat what I did. I wish to come back to this community through the correct procedures, not because of me being accidentally unbanned and then being accused in the future of evading my ban.
I understand that an immediate unban may look like a bad idea to some staff, so can I ask if I cannot return immediately to the community than to consider invoking a temporary 1x - 3x month ban instead? I do wish to return to playing with the community and return to see old friends online.
Finally, I'm going to end this off by apologizing to the community for all the negativity I have brought upon everybody and to the management team for blatantly disrespecting the rules they set in place for all players. If you have any questions about what I have posted, message me directly or post it down below.
Thank you for reading.
