Permaban Appeal

You probably deserved it.
Forum rules
  1. Be respectful at ALL TIMES. You may be angry about your ban, but you need to remain CALM AND COMPOSED.
  2. Do NOT post in an appeal, if you are not contributing as a witness. If you are going to post as a character witness (for or against), keep it simple and easy to read.
  3. Bans take at minimum, 24 hours to be investigated and processed. Avoid appealing for a 24 hour or less ban.
  4. If your appeal is denied, you cannot post another appeal for 30 days.
  5. For screenshots, we recommend using ShareX or Greenshot for instant uploads to imgur.com.
  6. Make sure the ban reason is EXACTLY what it says when you try to log in.
  7. Do not message staff about if we've gotten to your ban/appeal. It will result in AUTOMATIC denial.
  8. Don't message staff about bans outside of the forums.

Permaban Appeal

Post by OldJoJ » 06 Dec 2017, 23:03

Your Byond ID: OldJoJ

Character Name: Chad Steel

Type Of Ban (Job-ban, Timed Ban, Permaban): Permaban

Admin who banned you (if known): unknown

Total Ban Duration: n/a

Remaining Duration: n/a

What other servers do you play on? n/a

Are you now or have you been banned on any servers? Which ones? I don't think so.

Reason for ban (If you have a Permaban, it should be the EXACT MESSAGE YOU GET WHEN YOU LOGIN with the Error code that looks like this: X##XXX##. If you do not provide this EXACTLY you can't be unbanned): Access Denied. Banned by host: O23AUG17 - Metacommer

Link to previous appeals for the same ban (if applicable): n/a

Your appeal, including evidence (screenshots, etc): I want to play the game. I have no desire for any further shenanigans as the negatives of being banned exceed the positives of fucking around. The reason I was banned for "metacomming" was the chad meme shit that another user - my friend - recently posted an appeal about. In his ban appeal it is referenced that I was the one dealing with the admin(presumed to be slc97). When I said "great minds think alike" I said it not understanding the frustration the admin was currently facing. If the chad meme and other memes are used often, dealing with it will obviously become tiresome. Oblivious to the cliche of the chad meme on this server, I thought the admin would be in lighter spirits and would have a laugh at the "great minds think alike". Sorry for the chad meme and for the uncourteous response. I do not know if we were metacomming. We were using a chatting service but not with any intent to gain an advantage over the aliens. If "Fuck off, let's go" gives us an advantage over the aliens then I suppose we were metacomming. Not much else was said in the chat except swears, slurs, and "watch this shit" often followed by more expletives. In my opinion a more honest and substantiated ban would be a ban for "memeing" or "breaking rp", for whatever amount of time applicable. I am not by any means telling the staff how to do their job, but I stand by my opinion that the permaban for metacomming was not fully correct. I think both me and my friend were more than ready to be banned for something, but metacomming was not at the top of our list.
Regardless of my opinion on the ban which I wanted to share; I am sorry for the shitty meme I engaged in, and the inconsiderate response to admins. I hope taking a look at this appeal isn't too depressing, especially since it is only recently you had to deal with my friend's appeal.

If you feel I should give further explanation of the situation that warranted the ban please let me know. Most of the admins involved should be familiar with the situation from my friend's previous post.

Dunno.

Not sure its a good idea to let two meta-coms back on together at once.

I was debating if I should wait a while instead of posting an appeal literally hours after my mate got unbanned. I would really like to play the game in the coming weeks so if we can find a solution to that problem, that would be great.

Leaning toward denied.

He had like, 4 notes total, 2 of which were about the ban and

You have a clear history of being a memer, and from the looks of your history, you were probably the one to instigate the chad thing.

I'm gonna need a REALLY GOOD REASON to not deny this.

You're going to need to give a good pitch on why we should consider letting you back into the server, as apop stated. You had five "meme" related bans/notes in under a month. The facts aren't on your side here.
Get back here Clark!

Being away from the server for 3 months has showed me how unique the server really is, and how much I enjoyed playing it. The shallowness of the playerbase in other games has made me come to realise how much I value the fun and interaction I had on the server. The experience with other players and the alien combat that I previously took for granted, will no longer go underappreciated. My notes are not good, but I hope to change my legacy on the server, and create an enjoyable experience. If I get frustrated or bored of the server, instead of fucking around and causing trouble, I'll do something else. For a while I will not squad up with my friend, and if we do use chat, I'll be conscious of what I am saying, and how it could affect the game.

Thanks for taking the time to consider the appeal so soon after my friend's.

The thing is, the reason we have such a good playerbase is we literally make an effort to keep people who just meme like you guys did out of the server.
