[Q1] Provide the Ban link or if none, the reason
I was banned from the Dark Gaming Discord for “continued harassment of other users” - continued through here when doing elsewhere. ID is 909143747651043358. The ID of said user that was targetted is 404493234241536007.
[Q2] Did you break the rules knowingly?
I broke the rules knowingly because of the fact that I was doing this to gain attention. I have broken the following rules, this will be quoted in step 2 of this appeal:
Discord Rule number 1 when referring to Discord rules.
At the start of this situation, I was being weird in VCs on Terraria Discord - this was by calling Alyxia multiple times repeatively - this annoyed her.
Then, I proceeded to go further into this rabbit hole, when the user mentioned “transgender”, I did not think on what I was typing. This caused me to get Banned from the Terraria official discord.
Than, my stalking behavior got into the situation. I figured out mutual users. This meant that I could spam-ping the user. This was harrasment.
So, I proceeded to do this Dyno Ping in the bot-n-spam channel and guess what happened? This accounted for the fact that Nescre reported me, causing me to be banned from the Dark Gaming Server. He had gathered evidence and reported me, the screenshots show me harrasing Alyxia.
What should I have done instead?
Think before talking & typing!
Read the rules for the servers you enter so you are fully aware of the rules!
Don’t discriminate users.
And of course, once you are banned, PLEASE don’t harrass the user more. This is taking it way too far!
[Q3] Do you think your Ban was fair? If not, please provide a reason.
Yes, It was fair. Continuous harassment of other users is not tolerated anywhere, regardless of what you are doing. This only escalated due to the fact that this was continued on this server. Harassment made the experience to the user “Alyxia” intolerable. I understand that this can make other users feel uncomfortable. I was initially given
the 12-hour mute, but I know that it was barely comparable to the ban. By being given the mute, I have started a conversation with Glasia - @GlasiaVD23 and figured out that being creepy and discrimitory results in instant bans if done on this server. I understand that harassing a user to the limit can be considered fair because let’s go in my shoes:
I am being harassed by a user, and he is discriminating me via gender. How do I feel as the user harrased me?
I would feel very offended by the user’s behavior. I would report this user immediately, and block them in my shoes.
[Q4] Why should we unban you? (from the discord)
I would like to be unbanned because I like to talk to people on the Discord. I am a regular member of this server and love this server overall. I talk on the Discord of this server more frequently than other small servers. By being a regular member of this server, I was also supporting it via Nitro Boosting.
Note - Banned account ID will be deleted when the appeal has been confirmed. This will be to prevent tracking of the past, and to forget about the past. This also means that I will be joining with a slightly different account with a fresh ID.
The new ID that will be taking over is 1051607176893976716.
I did that action because of my presisting behavior; for some reason whenever something bad happens, I just proceed to make things worse. This below was the initial ban in the Terraria Server:
However, I decided to make things worse by deciding to ping the user that I thought had banned me, 404493234241536007. By doing that, this caused the user to be notified. The user had blocked me, but I used Dyno’s get-around to go further. This was harrasment, causing me to get muted, than Nescre reporting me, than @Tru3thful finally banning me from the discord.
This action disturbed the community because it pinged user 404493234241536007, which had already blocked me. This was basically harrasment of the people over from the Terraria Discord moderators. This was also why Nescre reported me, because it was basically harrasment of another user which happens to moderate the server I was banned from.
I can prevent this action from happening again by:
Not doing it again, try not to let the presistent behavior get the best of me. Quoted in the appeal is what I should have done instead.
By re-reading the rules and memorizing them in my head, the warnings which occur can be prevented by thinking before typing. Most of these issues happened because I was not paying attention to what I was doing. By not doing things that are not suitable for the server (bad stuff, breaking various rules), I can account for these behaviors (and by not breaking any further rules after the ban)
Will you if ever unsure whether the planned action OK ask the staff before doing that? Will you make sure not to be impulsive when writing / speaking in VC? If you are confident in doing this and promise us you won’t cause anymore mischief, we can proceed.
