Ban appeal for rule 10

#21
I feel the need to specify a few things:
1) I did use a friend's steam account to try to access the game.
2) I think having the ban on the "main account" is penalty enough because on the "alt" I do not have everything that I have on the main.
3) I don't think that "alting" is specified anywhere on the server rules https://starbystargaming.com/hogwartsrpc...ium/server.


Having that said I think I now understand rule 10 and how it works, after a warning and a ban I'm sure I will do nothing of the sort again.
I am also now aware of the alting rule.
I am deeply sorry for all the trouble I have caused.

Thank you.

Not sure if it's directly written down somewhere but I don't feel everything needs to be placed in writing some things are just kinda common sense. You don't need your hand held all the time. There are a few rules which are not written directly in stone which exist on the server (such as adults praying on minors which generally leads to a cban). We don't just let that happen because the compendium doesn't say "Please don't be a weird creepy fuck" 

Most every gmod server as well as most any other game that offers online services will ban alt accounts for using said accounts to bypass a ban. The ban is meant to restrict you use of that service for a limited time due to breaking the terms of use of said service. It doesn't really matter what the alt account does or does not have access to. You are accessing a service which you're supposed to be restricted from.

the only thing I take issue with is this: at the top of the rules is says the following

Quote:Please use common sense, if something doesn't seem logically correct, then it probably isn't!

That's why it's so painful to inform you of the attempt at circumventing ban through a family shared account rule, because it should come as common sense. Accounts don't get banned with the expectation of someone circumventing them to escape the punishment. Additionally, we could make the argument that it's technically not your alt account, but a friend's that you chose to play on server with that got flagged as an alt, but it's really an argument in semantics at that point. 

My vote on the first page is still the same- just stop digging holes for yourself

Hey Jerry, although I do appreciate the well written appeal and somewhat honesty (I wish you had added that another staff member had previously warned you for the exploited bug/not mentioning it to others) Attempting to play the game/alting on a friends account in the same day as the ban was placed is what's ultimately guiding my decision. Agreeing with what Joe had said, had you waited out the 24 hours to see where it would have led to or waiting it out would have been MUCH better than playing on a friends account. I understand you love and enjoy the server a lot, but breaking rules to bypass a punishment leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Therefore I will be denying this appeal. 


I'd also like to add for those who are unaware, for going against rule 10 - "10.) No exploiting or cheating of any kind" first offense is a warning and if caught again it is a automatic 1 week ban.

Appeal Denied.

Denied by Hannie. You'll have to wait out the rest of your ban, I'm sorry.
