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!

Hey Jerry,

Considering you had a warn from me regarding bug exploiting 1 week ago it was really annoying to see you get banned for breaking the rule again.

You should know better to not do any exploits on the server.

You're a really great guy Jerry and I always enjoy talking to you but rules are there for a reason.

Neutral to a reduction.

-1 for unban.

I get he has been warned before but I think its completely absurd to be banned for 1 week. Jerry is always online having fun and is literally just a dog we all love Jerry and want him to be on this server. I know he will NOT do it again and should be unbanned for this or at least banned for 6 hours. 

+1 for unbanned

Hey Jerry, thanks for making the ban appeal. As Cofo stated, he did issue you a warning for bug exploiting and were told that if you were to find anymore to report it and not show others. I received video evidence of yourself and a few others experiencing the bug and talking about it. I will be leaving this open for 24 hours for community feedback.

neutral to +1 for unban, +1 for reduction

this glitch doesn't offer any significant advantage in RP. there are other graphical glitches which enable an advantage or break the game which would justify a 1 week duration or longer, but for the specific use of the glitch in this instance I think it doesn't need to stay at a full week for first punishment

the only thing is that since you were also discussing the glitch with others, this will wind up doing more harm than good, and you were warned about spreading exploits. last week. 

combined with prior knowledge of the warning, this warranted the 1 week duration.

other than these two offenses, you have a very clean history.

in this appeal you are apologetic and acknowledge wrongdoing and say you won't do it again (specifically, you won't be exploting bugs and sharing how to do it with other players). since you've realized the severity of this offense and won't do it again, and considering your history, I believe you won't return to doing this again and I'm +1 for reduction, with only slight reservations for an unban.

it would also be a good idea to use the bug report section in the future since you seem to come across them.

The alt accounting/sharing of an account is the worst thing you could have done, I am still supportive of my original decision but this really confounds the entire appeal. I wouldn't be surprised if both of you had to sit out the entire punishment.

In the future, try not to circumvent punishment, in other games and servers this in and of itself is a reason to permaban you.

You were warned only a few days ago for the exact same rule, and that time you also were telling others about it. So both times you weren't just breaking the rule, but you chose to go around and tell others about it as well, which is even worse.

However, you are apologetic and you admit wrongdoing, which is something I appreciate in a ban appeal, so I'll give you a +1 for reduction to a day or two.

  • No serious advantage in game
  • Had no ill intent, for fun over all.
  • Did break the rule guaranteed, will admit he should not have shared it with others.
  • Is lovely to be around on the server
  • Ban appeal is well done

-1 for alting and attempting to bypass the ban, something which really should have been known that a ban would have been given for doing so.
  • Damn Jerry, alting? Tis a shame I must say, really takes out any honesty in the appeal.
My vote stands though as Jerry most likely did it as he misses the server, sometimes people get lost in their anger and fun and lose sight that what they're doing is wrong.

Should the alt account not be treated as a seperate entity anyway? The ban was given on the alt and acts as the punishment for that account right?

After reconsidering and looking at your friends ban appeal, both of you should really be held accountable for the alting.

Considering he was warned once and continued to exploit and share information I do believe a ban is warranted. Despite this, I know Jerry and I definitely believe his apology is sincere. As long as he understands he cannot do this again I believe a reduction is fair.

+1 for reduction 

Neutral for unban

Edit: After finding out that Jerry went on an alt I don't think there should be any reduction in the ban.

Hey Jerry!

Its Sad to see you banned as you're always super lovely on the server. Your ban is well written and you definitely seem sincere, I believe that you genuinely wouldn't do something like this again. I get that finding exploits can be fun, however the rules are in place to stop people going overboard and constantly exploiting things. If you discover an exploit its usually best to report it to staff and not tell other people/show them how to do it. 

Because of how sincere you seem in your appeal I'm going to be
+1 for a reduction

After seeing that you've tried to access the server using another account I'll be changing my vote to -1 for any unban/reduction.

+1 for ban reduction.

Even though he did break the rule, there are no real advantage except for the fun, 1 week for something like that is absurd...

It would be 2-3 days max in my opinion.
