BYOND Key: coolbc2000
Total Ban Length: Perma
Banning staff member's Key: The Doc

Reason of Ban: Leaving as HoS after finishing off Antag, Extensive History
Reason for Appeal:

Well, lads, it's another year, perhaps even an early Christmas present. Let's get this started.

I've currently finished the exam period and have moved into my own House. This I felt was a good time to start an appeal.

-Reasons for me now Appealing: Stable Internet connection that won't random drop like a Campus Connection.

-Emergencys will still pop up there's no stopping that. But the frequency of which they will happen has drastically been cut, like, 50KG of the weight cut.

-General Acceptance of what happens and that of which the Consequences I'm able to take. I can understand that in said round it definitely seemed to be that I merely took the Antag out and left the Server. Of which I take responsibility for, the Admins can't know what's happening in my Private life, they can merely observe my actions. Although I will say I couldn't think that would be the only Antag on the Server at the time (I do believe the man in question was a meer Traitor) and that if I truly was just hunting Antags, I would not have stopped there.

I do ask one thing of any Mods or Admins currently looking at this post. I have been active for two years on the server prior to being banned. I had a terrible start racking up notes every day while not severe for bans, they served the purpose of easier warning collecting that's known to me. After one year of playing on the server, I had a severe slap on the wrist (From Abosh personally) and got my shit into gear. Reworking characters and changing my attitude drastically. I was on hanging on by a thread of which those prior warnings from the start of me playing on the Server was always going to be hanging above.

Here's to good news.

All of this applies to the incident you were directly banned for, and some incidents following up to it. Do not take this the wrong way, it is certainly a good thing that these issues have been improved, and that you accept responsibility for what seemingly happened. If this were the only issue which you were banned for, this may have been sufficient- but it's not, and the reasons this will not pass as is will be addressed below.

The issue with this claim is your extensive track record. You admit to it, yes, and claim to have at one point 'changed your attitude drastically', yet your record continued. At the time of your banning you had, as was mentioned in your first ban appeal (which I replied to and was forced to close out of lack of response from yourself, to note), 76 staff notes, 12 distinct warnings, and 17 distinct bans- all of which were gained at a relatively continuous rate, with no visible period of 'changing attitude' that I can notice. I am not shutting down any possibility of your unbanning, but as in your previous appeal I must ask; why, at this point, after this many warnings, notes, and bans, should we believe that your attitude has changed, and that issues will not continue, given this history? Why is this time the last time? What about this situation warrants your current ban not being the last?

Hey Doc,

Before I start, could perhaps you yourself or another Admin post the number of Notes, warnings and "Bans" I received in the year before I was banned? I would also like to point out the 17 distinct bans that I've played on here are due to Antag bans counting to total bans accounted for. I know for a fact I've never been temporarily banned 17 times, I do believe my only temp ban was an End of Round grief. So if another Admin could check that for me that would be brilliant.

I can't completely remember how many Warnings I received after my year of revision, I'm positive that in that year I received two warnings one for rushed execution as a Revolutionary Head of Staff and for disconnecting. How my mannerisms have changed simply come down to growing up. I've found a job as an IT System Admin and my experiences dealing with customers and especially hot-headed ones. These have changed my personality, period. My humble ending of University has also taught me patience and understanding. I'm not never sure what else I could say about myself without delving into my own personal life but those two things have definitely made me ten years older than I currently am.

I've never asked for a second chance before and always took my punishments straight. It has been my intention to get back into this Community again, I've made many friends here and even through all the bullshit I've done, I've always thought of myself as a friend to all.

Double-checking comes up with 13 warnings and 14 bans, excluding duplicates. I'm sure I checked for those the first time, so I'm not sure where my numbers went off, but the general impression is roughly the same regardless. You're free to confirm this with any other staff you see fit to ask, if they have the time to, or I can post your note log in full for reference in this appeal. I can assure you that you have far more than one single temporary ban.

That said, given the amount of time passed since the ban was first issued, your explanation of improvement in the time since, and the fact that this is indeed your first full permanent ban (despite the exhaustive track record of about every other ban), I'm willing to life this ban under the condition that this will be your last chance on the server. You've had warnings, job bans, and server bans for several of our basic rules, and plenty of opportunities to re-read and adjust your behavior to them each time; there won't be a next one. As long as you acknowledge this, I will be accepting this appeal and lifting the ban.

I'm fully aware of my mistakes and I understand the worry. I do also acknowledge this is my last life line.

Thank you again
