Ban Date (YYYY/MM/DD/):
Ban evasion (after appeal, no chance to respond)
This qualifies more as a ruling disagreement, but since the admin closed the thread before I could respond, here is my reasoning towards why what I did didn’t deserve a permanent ban:
Let’s suppose I was intentionally ban evading:
Why would I use the same computer I’ve been logged using with both accounts? Why would I use an evading account with such a similar name? ( I was banned for supposedly evading with my account ‘diegobm7’ from a ban on ‘aptybm7’) Why wouldn’t I use a VPN to prevent the accounts from being linked? If I was actually intending to evade my ban, the utter lack of measures, taken to prevent myself from being caught and the useless nature of evading an appeal on forums ban ( since if I were aware of such a ban, I would appeal it and not risk a permanent ban) makes no sense, if I were intending to evade a ban and keep playing on here. However, if we examine this from a point of me not knowing I was banned on that account (on which I barely played on, since it was logged in at my father’s house, where I spend less time), this makes much more sense, since I kept playing on my account ‘diegobm7’ which I had been exclusively using since I was at my mother’s house.
I think there is a big difference between intentional and unintentional ban evasion, especially punishment-wise. When a person intentionally ban evades, they are trying to escape a punishment that they are aware was put in place, and willfully acting against what the administrators ruled would be their punishment. However, when the evasion is unintentional ( as is my case) the banned person in question is just playing the game normally, unaware they were banned, as is in my case, on a barely-used alt account. In the intentional evader’s case, I believe it is right to follow server policy and offer a permaban, but in the unintentional evader’s case the more appropriate thing to ban for would be multikeying, which I don’t believe deserves a permanent ban.
I am therefore asking for my permanent ban to be shortened to a temporary ban, the length of which is to be determined by the administrators based on what they believe is a fair punishment for the multikeying or even the unintentional evasion, I will appeal the ban that originated all of this if needed later.
About my original ban, this ban was applied a month after I actually did the bananable offence, since then and I believe a very short temp ban for some shittery I think my behavior has been completely by the rules and, in fact, I think I have grown quite a lot as a player. There are players who could vouch for my good behaviour if needed, although they might not remember me since I’ve been in the community for such a short period of time.
