Family shared account.

(1) What is your in-game name? - Avacyn Markov

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - STEAM_0:1:90720278 / STEAM_0:0:70995759

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

(4) How long were you banned for? - ~a week

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? - No

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

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) - I wasn't aware of the family shared account ban. I shared my account with Jerry Pumpkins and let him use it, knowing he was banned. I knew he loved the game and hated to see him upset with his ban and inability to play so I allowed him on my account to play while I was away. I was then notified that I was also banned upon him attempting to join the game. 

(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - I don't think so.

(9) Why should you be unbanned? - I didn't know about the family shared account ban rule. I was just trying to help my friend enjoy a game he loves.
Edit: I have, since posting, unlinked my account from Jerry's. I am new to the game, so I only knew about the game rules that are shown when you load into the game. 

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? - Of course.

(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!

Hey Avacyn,

This is upsetting to see from both of you. You both are very lovely individuals, but alt accounting to bypass a ban, and helping your friend alt account to bypass a ban is simply not right. Your unban is dependent on the state of jerry's appeal, but after this, I do not think it is looking too well.

Alt accounting is against the rules on our server, and in regards to your answer on question 8 and 9, just because you didn't know about a rule doesn't mean you don't deserve to be punished for breaking it. Even if we didn't have the automatic system in place for cases like this, it still wouldn't have been allowed and your account would have been instantly banned by a staff member, because a banned player is using it to avoid their ban. Whether it was you on the account or not, you're appealing for the account, and a rule break happened on it. You're also responsible as well because you allowed him to go on.

Either way, since your accounts are now connected, there is no way to unban your account without unbanning his as well. Whatever the result of his ban appeal is, you will also have to take, whether it's the full week, a reduction, or an unban.

Edit: I'll handle this appeal

Good gesture on your hand, however rules are rules and said person needs to wait out said ban.

So I've thought on this appeal, and after our chats in PMs, I've decided to accept it and give you a full unban.

It does bother me slightly that you answer that you don't deserve the ban in your appeal, you most certain do because you were just as much a part of the alt accounting situation as the banned player was. He couldn't get onto your account without your permission. I've already explained this to you though.

The reason I am accepting your appeal is because you have been 100% honest with us and I appreciate that a lot. You could have chosen to lie about how your account got banned, but you didn't and you told the truth to us. That's not something we get super often in appeals. And for the not agreeing that you deserve it, you've already served almost a day so I feel that was enough punishment that you won't do it again.

Appeal accepted
