Please bring Meowington and Drakon in on this conversation.
So, I got banned 30 days or so ago I asked why I got the answer. I took blocks from a town that I thought was abandon. it had already been griefed with blocks placed everywhere and it looked like a Minecraft faction server. It’s not my fault they didn’t put a sign up or claim their plot. Players that’s username are MEOWINGTON and DRAKON can vouch for me. i specifically asked them if someone didn’t claim it or have a sign up or anything i could take it.
The conversation of the ban dispute went just like this:
Ok, I can give back every block I still have them but you didn’t have to ban me when I couldn’t defend myself. I’m sorry I thought the town was abandoned. it had already been griefed.
**MODERATORS SAID: **
Everything has been rolled back anyway, so there’s nothing to give back.
Yes, the town was mostly abandoned and there were other griefers (who got banned as well), but that doesn’t mean you can grief it. It’s very simple: Don’t touch any other players’ buildings without their permission.
And about the ban itself: Of course, we ban for something which is clearly against the rules. Why would we wait and allow further damage to be caused? The forum is the place to defend yourself, not in game.
That all being said, you said you followed every single rule and it is clearly stated in the rules that what you did is not allowed…
Modifying or destroying ( griefing ) another players structure without their explicit consent is not allowed and can lead to either a temporary ban (in case of a small violation) or a permanent ban.
So the way I see this ban is that they don’t care about the about how small the grief is your just banned for life. They give no second chances Ban you for life for the simplest things even if you volunteer to fix, replace or give back what you took.
also have another example of a player that has been baned for 3 years and whats that he never got a SECOND CHANCE
