What kind of ban are you appealing?
Lechery, EggyPoundcake, BrandDaddy
By your own understanding, why are you banned?
I was banned due to my using an X-Ray Resource Pack to try and find ores quickly.
Why should you be pardoned?
This is my first infraction since my joining Lord of the Craft, and to my own knowledge I've been nothing but friendly and cordial to my peers, and the staff of the server. After this infraction, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I'll repeat the same mistakes, as I've enjoyed my time and the friends I've made here.
What will you do to prevent similar circumstances that led to your ban?
Steering clear of the mines, and purchasing iron rather than digging it up myself should help. I never much cared for mining in the first place, and only did it out of pure necessity. Frustration caused me to break the rule, so I believe keeping away from mining is the best approach.
Discuss why you believe that following the Community Guidelines is important to promote a healthy community.
The Community Guidelines are oil to Lord of the Craft's machine, and ensure the smoothness of player to player interaction and stand to promote the enjoyment that the server brings to its participants. It is not unlike a code of etiquette for roleplay, and serves as a reminder to the players that while it's acceptable to become invested in the server, and in roleplay, that it still is only a game. It fosters a sense of reality in the players, and reminds them that distancing ones self from their character, or roleplay in general is entirely healthy, and even encouraged.
