Deathnerd117 permaban by MrHardDrive

Post by thehdmicord » July 12th, 2019, 7:06 am

CKey: Deathnerd117
Character Name: Doc Highlander
Banning admin: MrHardDrive
Ban Date and Round: 2019/6/17, round ID 41215
Ban Reason: metagaming
Ban Type: Permanent
Ban Length: Permanent
Why I should be unbanned: I was banned for metagaming in the first place, but I wasn't even metagaming, a guy I met was teaching me how to be robust. In the ban log, the admin also said that, since I played this station in 2017, I should know all the rules, but I'd only played Hippie once every few months up until the ban.

Define "teaching me how to be robust" first.

He was teaching me how to be a good chemist, with mixing and chemnades. He taught me how to make the best drugs like meth and fentanyl.

In my humble mentor opinion:

Although the appeal was pretty short, it seems sincere to me. I don't know the full story, and I haven't seen the logs, but if the guy was learning chemistry from another person, I can see it being possible to appear as though they were metagaming. I know it's frowned upon (and outright against the rules), but I do believe in second chances.

I'd give a +1 in favor of being unbanned.

Well, first off I'd like to hear from the banning admin to see if there's more to the story than you're letting on. In the past we've allowed people to teach their friends how to play, if they gave us a heads up in ahelps first. Assuming that everything happened the way you said it happened, I have no real issue with you being unbanned.

I'd like to hear from MrHardDrive too, but if you've played any ss13 before you should know better than to collaborate with other players outside of in game comms.

As far as I can remember he was teaching me in-game.

Appeal is quite short though...

Honestly I'd give it a +1 but I want to know what MrHardDrive says about that

Gassed his fellow gang members with meth. When asked why, said: "Reply PM from-Deathnerd117/(Doc Highlander): yeah, I did. I had two chemnades left and my friend was leaving so I threw them on the ground so I could kill myself. turns out i just gave myself brain damage".

This was the real ban reason. You're telling me you weren't metagaming? I find that hard to believe.

Checked that and MrHardDrive's right.

Lying in your ban appeals will 100% get it denied, keep that in mind if you wish to appeal sometime later.
Don't do dumb shit like that and ESPECIALLY don't metagame.
