I want to explain myself here. My messages that I have sent to the player were meant to be interpreted as a rude joke (note: this joke was still about literal sex, it was not an euphemism) which can be understood by reading full context. I won’t defend my actions here, my actions were wrong - that’s a fact - and I want to apologize for them. I shouldn’t have joked about that since this was part of ERP which is against the rules. Why I did that I don’t know, I probably thought that this wouldn’t be severe enough to be counted as ERP and I didn’t think of asking admins for confirmation, hence my foolish decision. From now on I won’t make jokes about sex without asking an administrator if they are fine to be sent (like for instance your mother jokes) - in addition to that, I will be more careful with my words from now on in general. I ask for my ban duration to be shortened. If I may ask, is there a page with an extended section of the rules providing me with examples of circumstances of said rules being broken and of them being not so that I can inform myself further on the rules to avoid any incidents like those in the future? Thank you for taking your time reading my appeal, have a nice day.
If I may ask, why is my appeal taking so long to process? It’s been 3 days out of 7, making this appeal redundant on the 4th day tomorrow.
Hi, I apologize for the delay. We’ll make sure this is looked into as soon as we can.
Hello Ekcja I will be handling your ban appeal today.
I have gone and looked at the surrounding logs to the line for which you were banned, and I must say they do not help your case. For instance, the line for which you are banned is prefaced with you talking bout how prostitutes are humanity’s earliest profession.
You yourself have stated that what you said was not a euphemism and was about literal sex. In our rules it very clearly states, “Euphemisms that also have a sexual meaning are allowed in non-sexual contexts. Common terms or phrases like ‘Suck my dick’ are fine, as long as saying such is not a literal invitation or solicitation to do so.”
As this constitutes a semi-serious breach of one of our cardinal rules, I will be denying this appeal, in accordance with our internal ban procedures. Rule 1 offenses are a grave matter, resulting in substantial bans. Our community comprises numerous players under the age of 18, so please exercise greater caution in your choice of words upon your return.
