    Sebastian_420 Ban Appeal

    My Ban Appeal

    Hi, everyone. I was banned yesterday because I was offering Middle-man services?

    Banned Account: Sebastian_420

    First of all, I had no idea that a middle-man service wasn't allowed. I was not informed of any middle-man requirement or anything related to "MPGH official middle-man" I'm a dedicated contributor to the DayZ section, and I have a lot of people confused as to why I'm banned. I donated towards MPGH and would probably donate again... why not

    I made a thread in the "User Services" section called "Middle-man Services" because I thought it'd help a lot of people out, with scams going on, etc. But then the next day, I have a perma ban on my account...

    I'd appreciate it a lot if I could be unbanned, I've contributed so much to this community and I'd like to contribute even more.
    I would like to be unbanned because I'll never make the same mistake again, I'll read the correct rules in the section before posting (Every time) and I'll be more careful when posting in sections where I've never posted before.

    Warm regards, Sebastian_420

    Read before opening a dispute

    "Do not open a dispute for:
    • Not knowing / being ignorant of a rule. It's your job to read the rules, and it's our job to enforce them."

    Someone didn't read the forum rules:

    Code:
    Marketplace Rules
    - No trading using a non-official middleman. (Permanent Ban)
    - No middle manning unless being an official middleman of MPGH. (Permanent Ban)
    - No scamming of any kind. (Permanent Ban)

    Just because you donated to MPGH, it doesn't mean you should have a special treatment, at all. Also, are you trying to bribe staff, (lol)? Because if so, it won't work.

    There was a time when the usage of Unofficial Middlemen was allowed but since such a thing resulted in users being scammed, now the usage of Unofficial Middlemen is strictly forbidden. Anyways, just recently the Staff Administrator, Liz, opened applications for MM. Two new Official Middlemen, ([MPGH]Hugo Boss and [MPGH]DarkLordXYZ), were picked, and even if there was any need for more Official Middlemen, they would be picked through applications, not by making "Middle-man Services" threads.

    No I am not "bribing" Staff or attempting to cash my way back in.
    All that I'm saying is that I did the wrong thing, I understand that. There's not much I can do about what I did wrong.

    IMO I don't deserve to be banned, I've seen a lot worse situations and they get away free.
    You don't understand that I'm the good-guy, I made a civil mistake. We're humans lol.
    I apologize from my mistake, I've learnt from my mistake.

    All I was trying to do was give back something to community and this happens.
    Try to see it from my point of view.

    Given the amount of user input and opinions regarding disputes that have NOTHING to do with them, we are pushed to enforced rules similar to requests.


    Also:

    Unless you are filing the dispute, or have some form of evidence or statements that directly affect that specific dispute, you have NO business here. Staff and the disputers themselves are the only ones allowed to post. All others will be deleted, and possibly banned if repeat offenders.

    I know people can make mistakes. By the way: "Just because they did it, and didn't get caught, doesn't mean you won't. It's also not a valid defense, a dispute is about you, don't bring another party into this, use the report button instead and serve out your ban."

    True, I am not a staff member and I probably shouldn't even be posting in this thread, I'll give you that, but since you opened a dispute because you weren't aware of a rule: "Do not open a dispute for:
    Not knowing / being ignorant of a rule. It's your job to read the rules, and it's our job to enforce them.
    ", your "counter-argument" doesn't really make much sense but alright, I won't post on this thread again.

    Ignorantia juris non excusat. Being ignorant about something does not mean you are innocent. You broke a rule, and that's that.
