Bert's ban appeal

Recommended Posts

Editor's note: As I was told to post this on forums, I have removed the links to the documents I have made as most as still relevant in the server, and I do not want to interfere with players using them in any way by making them public. Management can feel free to let me know if they want the links. :)

Who banned you?
General Akrius/Stingel - 30/12/2020 @ 15:55

Length of the ban?
Permanent.

Reason of the ban?
"Attempting to inject cheats" - which I will address below, as it is a tad misconstrued.

Why should we unban you?
Realistically, I believe what I was doing, despite being wrong, was not as severe as it is made out to be with the cut-and-dry ban reason. I had a net logger active, as AT THE TIME been working with American mafiarp servers in terms of assisting them with some hotfixes, and was (as I realise now) ignorant in keeping that on while joining another server of which I had no permission to use it (i.e. the clone wars server). I realize that this is unacceptable, as I shouldn't be using a net logger that could react differently between servers on a server in which I am not a verified developer. And this was proven true, as the net logger freaked out when I opened it (which was my fault for opening it of course), sent too many netstrings and I was immediately disconnected by aProtect, and seemingly later banned.

My point here is as follows:
a) Yes, I have broken a rule of the server, and am not in opposition to punishment for it, but I believe it should be scaled down based on the circumstances (e.g. a perma ban on the CW server, and probationary period on Imperial, where I'm happy to be spectated and inspected 24/7). Alongside this, I believe if we can let people who have previously exploited on the server by teleporting players into the reactor etc back into the community, then I see no reason why I can't prove myself.
  i) I had not purposely taken malicious action to hurt the server (of which to my knowledge it remained 100% functional), which my motivation to instead help can be supported by my following points
b) I truly apologise, and hope to return to the community and focus even further on my RP, instead of development, which I have since deleted my tools for as to not allow this to happen again.
c) I'd personally believe I'm dedicated to, and a fan of the Imperial server, which can be seen through my various documents and operations within my time in Regional Government, leading it's ministry of information (which you can ask Tarkin or now Governor(?) Caesar as to my dedication and love of it), and my effort to help and interact with various people across the server, whether staff, EM or just regular players. I’m here to help make RP and have fun, not destroy the source of my gaming highlights.
  i) You can ask around to those who talk to me regularly in the gov ts and discord, I have no ill intentions towards the server and aim to enjoy it alongside people I'd consider mates.
  ii) A couple examples of the fair few documents I've authored/co-authored over the last two weeks or so for the server can be found below, and I've even given my templates to certain players as a sign of goodwill: (Any co-authors of these, I'd appreciate you vouching for me on this one)
       - I've assisted in templating and writing parts of an early ISB spy operation (which I am unsure if it is used currently or not)
       - Regional Government documents such as the handbook and procedures for IntOrg/Military Intelligence, NOPDAG Group (a reg gov political action group), working currently on a Joint Intelligence Clearance document
       - I assisted in setting up the discord and functions for the since deleted casino
       - There are more, but I'm sure people who I've written documents with on the above can vouch I'm invested in creating in-depth RP through this

Now, I understand this might all look like a sham, and I do get it, I used to own a big ImpRP server myself, but I'd hope management can put some faith in me and give me a second chance, as I believe I've learned from my mistake and acted on it, I actively try benefit the server and RP regiments I’m a part of and continue to harbor no ill-will towards it.

Ive known this man for a fair while now and he would never intentionally use anything maliciously against the server. He was largely involved with the roleplay of Reg Gov and while he has his senior moments, from what I can see, he genuinely wants to play on the server again.

Thanks for the response, much appreciated.
I definitely hope to hop right back into that RP, seems to be getting better by the day.

Seems like this was a genuine mistake considering you were playing seriously for a fair while solidifies this.  Slipups happen occassionaly and if you can ensure it won't happen again im sure you'll be unbanned in no time.

Thanks for the open mind, and I totally agree, I can bet on my right hand that it won't be an issue again.

It’s fairly easy to monitor the usage of 3rd party cheats and software. I’m sure there is no reason you can’t continue to play on the IMP server so long as you keep true to your work. If you choose however to muck up again, there is plenty enough evidence to keep you away for good.

100% with you on that one.

Accepted
Make sure you understand that in future sits or decisions of punishments, no leniency will be shown. Also, understand that harsher punishments will be merited if further and or similar threats are made against the server another member of the community.

Welcome back mate 🙂
