Reason for ban: banned for griefing Leif's base
1. setting a waypoint inside someone's base and lying to staff about it
2. fly abuse
Date banned: 1/21/2019
Reason for appeal: I would like to be unbanned from the server even if it is just for a few hours.
If you are unable to permanently unban me:
This server was a huge part of my life from 2016-to 2019 and on it, I made many friends and had a great time. I also made many large builds in various locations. I would like it if I can be unbanned for good, and in fact, that would be the desired outcome of this appeal. However, if you determine that it is not an option, I ask that I could be allowed to join the server for around an hour to take screenshots of my base and to record myself giving it one final tour. My main build, Gola-Dur is something that I put a huge amount of time into (~100hrs). Unfortunately, I have very few screenshots of the base and I would really appreciate it if I would be allowed to take some screenshots and possibly get a world download. I understand that due to my three previous infractions in 2019 and before that I may be unable to be forgiven, if this is the case I plead that I could be allowed to return briefly to document Gola-Dur, as well as my other various builds (Gola-Valbor Gola-Thin, Jungle Resort, and Rhundel mansion).
Why you should remove my perm-ban.
During my time away from the server, I have matured considerably. Looking back now, I realize how stupid it was to throw away my builds and friends on the server just to kill Leif and grief his base. I am sorry about what I did to Leif and I hope that one day he can forgive me. I also realized that often I was not a very positive member of the community. I was constantly asking staff for fly permission, world edit, and made a faction of outcasts that were generally disliked on the server. I would like to apologize for being so annoying in discord, public chat, and to the server moderators and admins. I believe I should be unbanned because I will be a positive contribution to The One Ring community in the future. As I said earlier, I have changed a lot in the three years I was away from the server. I was banned when I was 13 and am currently 16. Honestly, I just want to experience the same fun and sense of community that I got to experience back in the day. If I am unbanned, will not break the rules in the future and be more respectful towards the staff and community. Since my ban date, I have taken a more active leadership role in my Boy Scout troop. Being someone who is supposed to enforce rules during events has given me a greater respect for them that my 13-year-old self did not possess. I’ve also been working with a lot of volunteer groups such as the local soup kitchen and a local land trust. Both activities have forced me to be much more aware of rules dictated by my superiors. The soup kitchen has especially made me pay attention to the various rule and guidelines when it comes to preparing and cooking food. (If one of their volunteers is not following these guidelines the entire soup kitchen could have their license revoked.) Because of this, not listening to rules and guidelines when it comes to food prep can get you in serious trouble with the staff. Why am I saying all this? Earlier I said that I matured and have more respect for rules than I used to. These examples are just letting you know how and why I have matured and why I have more respect for rules. If you unban me, I will not try my best to not break the rules and try my best to not be toxic, I will not break the rules and I will not be toxic.
A final message to the reviewer.
This is a very long appeal and I thank you for taking the time to read all of it. Really, thank you for giving me enough of a chance to read it!!! If I am unredeemable in your opinion or were given my last chance three years ago I’m fine with that. Even if you won’t unban me temporarily, I’m fine with that too. Make no mistake about it, I do most profoundly hope that staff will pity me and unban me. Or if that is not possible perhaps to temporarily unban me. If both decisions are no, I’m not mad, and I get why those decisions would be made. If the last time I got to see Tor was 3 years ago, so be it; if the last time I get to see Tor was in a week once this appeal is reviewed, so be it, if the last time I get to see Tor will be 3 years from now, so be it. Thank you so much for reading my ban appeal. Everything stated above is true and I most sincerely believe. I would like to thank all of the staff and players who made my experience on the server so amazing. Enough so just the idea of getting it back is enough to motivate me to write this appeal.
Thank you so much again, everyone on the amazing server for all the good times,
Whatever your decision may be, as Marcus Aurelius said, amor fati.
