Ban Appeal

(1) What is your in-game name? - Lukas Blaze

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - STEAM_0:0:429434457

(3) What is the name of Admin/Staff who banned you? - @Ryte Lionheart

(4) How long were you banned for? - 4 weeks

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? - Maybe like twice, NLR and GY RAID

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? - No

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) - I was banned for 'N-word', 'Denying' and LTAP, The N-word bit, i was banned for saying, "Gato Negro is my favourite wine brand", from a PM as well. This is an actual wine brand also, this wasn't intended to be racist at all by the way, the Denying was legit, but i didn't really deny since it technically wasn't the N-word and i was legitimately talking about a Wine Brand, so i straight up said i didn't say the N-word, cause well i didn't.
The LTAP was a bit of unlucky timing, Ryte can check the logs from my disconnect, i didn't actually disconnect my internet cut at the certain time it happened, i know you guys might think that's bullshit but i'm being 100% honest in this appeal, the disconnect message would of same (Timed out) and not (Disconnect by User).

(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - 
Personal honesty, for the "N-word" bit, yes, that i most likely deserve, even know it is a Wine Brand i guess it's still saying it a bit, i was really thinking at the time when the PM came through but i won't make excuses. 
The Denying, well when he was talking to me and asked me i straight up said no i didn't say the N-word, because no i literally didn't.
L-Tapping: 100% No, that added another week onto my ban for my internet just playing up.

(9) Why should you be unbanned? - 
I think i should be unbanned because when playing the game i was having a lot of fun at the time when i said that, i wasn't fully thinking of what i was saying and i only noticed after that the sentence provided 'Negro', you guys will think i'm making that as an excuse which is fine as well, i have no intention to be racist on the server and towards anyone because i am not that type of person, i have never disrespected other people because of their race and colour of their skin, but just happens the word is 'Racist'.
Like i said i have no intention of doing it so why would i, i guess it was just a Silly Mistake, but 4 weeks for a word that isn't even the actual word is pretty harsh.
Also the Ltapping, 100% should at least have this reduced if the rest doesn't get appealed because my internet cut out and i didn't "L-tap".

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? - Well i know i JUST got banned but i made an appeal straight away since it was pretty unexpected and like i said i have no intention to be racist because that stuff is just really fucked up, but of course i would watch my sentences and words next time before copy pasta into OOC, just a really stupid mistake on my end of things.

(11) Provide a Screenshot of the message that appears when you try to join the server: -

For Question 3, you can also tag the Staff Member who banned you so they can receive an immediate notification. To do this, type the: "@" symbol and the name of the staff member after it. If you are not sure who the staff member is on the forums, just list their in-game name and Forum Staff/Server Staff will tag that staff member!

If you are telling the truth in this appeal, then I don't see you saying that with the intention of being racist in anyway, I googled it and it is a legit wine brand so I believe you are telling the truth with that. The denying, I do understand why an extension would have been added to your ban since you said you didn't say the n-word at all, although you did, but without the intention of it being racist or a racial slur in anyway, so I don't think this should have been extended. However with the LTAP unless evidence can be provided from the logs of the messages saying "timed out" instead of "Disconnected by user" I cannot really take your word on that, but it seems like your being honest about everything else so Ima +1 for a full unban or reduction to 1 week.

+1 for full unban
+1 for reduction to 1 week
Goodluck with your appeal!

I'll come back to this appeal later on once community has an input on this.

First though, the logs stated you disconnected, not timed out.

i'll go for a +1, i pm'ed you jokingly "Gato Negro is my favorite wine brand" since i just saw an add for it, then you copied the pm and said it in ooc and you got banned for it, so it's my fault you really got banned.

It 100% isn't your fault, i take responsibility for this because when i sent the message in OOC i didn't see the word 'Negro' in the sentence, stunned after i sent in OOC, but it is a stupid mistake on my end for just copy pasta from PMS.

Going to go with a +1 
Don't think you were trying to be racist at all, just looks like you didn't recognise the word or what it could look like to others. 
Be more careful g

+1 for full unban
  • If he indeed disconnected +1 for reduction
So basically Gato Negro is a wine brand
Gato means cat in Portuguese / Spanish etc
Negro doesnt always mean a racist word it can be used to describe a color and not a race or anything else. 

 So yes many people when they see the word negro think of racism but its not always like that.
(But be careful as this is an english server this word is mostly used for racism and will be understood as racism) 

yea 4 weeks seems really steep when he wasnt really being racist IMO

Yea it was rlly dumb to post that in ooc but it wasnt like he was spamming the N word or anything

Plus i mean, it is a genuinely a wine? Theres also a restaurant near me named "El Gato Negro" so it isnt even an uncommon phrase (it literally means the black cat)

Ill dismiss the "denial in sit" as that is obviously situational, but TBH if he also DC'd during the sit i guess he knew he was in the wrong. (plus lying on the appeal doesnt rlly help)

Yea he was in the wrong and shouldnt have been putting that in ooc, but 4 weeks seems slightly unfair

+1 for reduction to a week

I'm going with an +1 cuz he was legit talking about the wine brand, it wasn't racism. But yeah he could be more careful about that.
