What kind of ban are you appealing?
Plagiarizing lore written by LotC players.
The Fire Mind
By your own understanding, why are you banned?
I was banned for pretending that I owned the lore of Anti-Magic, and tried to show it to another server's lore team, claiming that it was mine.
Why should you be pardoned?
I never not believe that I was in the wrong, it was just a stupid and childish thing that I'd done in the heat of the moment, and I have apologized to Bokratz themselves, and I am deeply sorry for the disturbance I've caused. I shan't do it again.
What will you do to prevent similar circumstances that led to your ban?
I'll avoid claiming lore as mine.

It's always been important that LotC had no 'protagonists' and that it was a universe that was unique, and where the world revolved around not a single character, but all of them, together. If 'winning' and 'losing' were to be concepts, the point of RP and combat would not to be RPing and enjoying the flow of the events, but to one-up the other and powergame while doing so. In terms of being helpful and encouraging, it's always been important to keep LotC, a server with around 200 players on average, new-player-friendly. People are required to be helpful, and be guiding in terms of new players, to avoid driving them off of the server. In terms of being detached, people are expected to not be their characters. This is especially important to prevent people from leaning over their characters, and going as far as taking OOC measures to prevent them from receiving harm, and practically ruining the immersion for everyone around them.
