What kind of ban are you appealing?
griefing with evil intent
By your own understanding, why are you banned?
I placed two buildings I paid for with RL money in a land I owned. I was kicked out of said land while i was away in exam season, so I got no notice of me being evicted. I come back and I start tearing these builds down. Im allowed one but I destroyed the two of em
Why should you be pardoned?
Because I'm not going to do it again. I'm not placing my beloved builds in the server any more. I did not do it out of spite, I just wished to conserve my moneys worth.
What will you do to prevent similar circumstances that led to your ban?
I will not place any more builds that I've paid or hold dear in this server.
Discuss why you believe that following the Community Guidelines is important to promote a healthy community.
I think the community guidelines are a pretty illusion, satirical almost because I don't see many staff adhering to them, and many staff openly bash the whole staff atmosphere they volunteer in. That said, they are nicely worded, and they assume a more caring, open community that would follow them and thus become cohesive via conduct, adhering to the same social conduct leading to a more enjoyable experience. It'd be nice if we all sat down and reviewed what type of community we are, because it feels sometimes there's a disconnect between what it is and what we want it to be. And perhaps that whole deal means we're pulling the wagon's wheel off, steering off into unknown territory, while we could just assist each other into getting into the right destination, reaching what we can be, our potential as a community. I see a lot of passive toxicity flung around in an attempt to circumvent the guidelines, which goes to show just how irrelevant they've become, that they're only walls that some people dance around to continue acting as they are. I don't think harsher guidelines or punishments could fix it, so I think there's other alternatives, mainly given that most of the communtiy is made up of now grown adults over the age of 16.
Otherwise, community guidelines are real good for setting the staff expectations of the community, and thus laying out what the staff expects of the community, and help shape it to that state.
