I do not condone hacking although I think curiosity got the better of you. I believe you wanted to check out what would happen with a bunch of buffs but you were able to show restraint & did not abuse your buffs. You deserve another chance & I believe the mod that banned you should definitely question their judgement. Those screenshots should have been responded with a warning rather than a ban. It’s sad to see you leave after something so trivial. It all came down on you in just a few days.
Hello, it is nice to hear your opinion. However the rule (S5#1) states this:
As having 40 of the same buff for 9940 hours is deviating the gameplay functionality from normal Terraria and was accomplished using a 3rd party program, it is a violation of S5#1 and is according to the rules punished with an immediate ban.
This rule applies even when you are just entering the server and not doing anything with those illegal buffs.
There was earlier a system to warn hackers but due to the experience of that only one of the many hackers ever listened, the rules state since then that every hack is punishable by an immediate ban.
