Ban Appeals / Re: False Ban?
« Last post by Not pawky on September 21, 2022, 12:09:56 PM »
After reviewing the demos with another administrator it was deemed that there was not enough evidence of cheating. 

This appeal has been reviewed already and the users have been unbanned.

Ban Appeals / False Ban?
« Last post by Flam_Sauce(1 spoons) on September 16, 2022, 08:55:34 PM »
I believe that a group of friends and I have been falsely banned from a  cp_orange_gamerland_classic server. The ban had been on 09-14-22 21:46, for the reason of, "Cheating with a group of friends who were also cheating." The friends in question were, Skeeble Mc Dingdong, spongus grongus, and joelol. We had been playing with 2 other friends and they weren't banned, why is that? I do not understand how we could have been cheating. We had been using the in server shop system, nor had we been playing on the day of the ban. Please review this, we loved playing on that server and don't understand the ban.

When going through the process of punishing someone for breaking servers rules we will punish them through the removal of certain privileges before making on the decision of a permanent ban. You have passed the threshold (we have had to comban you 8+ times, along with several issue of harassment throughout your time on our servers) where we had to make that decision; resulting in your ban.

You have also failed to provide adequate information on your ban disabling us from considering your ban appeal. Before posting again I suggest reading what is provided on this link. http://tf2swapshop.com/forum/index.php?topic=390.0

"People change you know"

Absolutely correct people can change.  I've seen people change over the years from bad habits and bad decisions.  It is clear you have not changed whatsoever

"if the admins weren't harassing me over the years then we wouldn't have problems"
Even if this is true, what makes you think this is justified?  "They hurt me so I'll hurt them!".  This is perhaps the most childish thing to say, and yet the closest you've come to even admitting your fault in this.

"pawky has a known history of just out right banning people if he doesn't like them."
Ah yes, I ban people I don't like even though I'd given you multiple chances and temporary commblocks and a temporary ban only for you to return to do the exact same thing.

"when i was unbanned? like yesterday pawky was just spectating me while i was muted gagged and i couldn't use the shop and he was just watching me for 10 mins straight like as soon as i join the server he's just there to ban me even tho i didn't even do anything"

This was a sourcebans db issue where your ban was removed from the db and having seen you in the servers I reinstated it.  Since this was a technical issue and the ban wasn't for cheating, I would've normally opted to not reinstate the ban but given the circumstances and how recent the ban was I chose to reinstate it

"also pawky has been demoted before"
absolutely incorrect.  Of my time here administrating swapshop servers I have never been demoted. 

I'm just going to post my summary because I don't believe anything about this is genuine at all.
Your behavior on the servers is appalling and I'm now sounding like a broken record.


You haven't once admitted your fault or wrong and all you've done in your posts and over the weeks leading up to your initial permaban is blame other people, make excuses, lie, and attempt to coerce your way out of punishments

And another thing when i was unbanned? like yesterday pawky was just spectating me while i was muted gagged and i couldn't use the shop and he was just watching me for 10 mins straight like as soon as i join the server he's just there to ban me even tho i didn't even do anything also pawky has been demoted before so how come he's just allowed to go into like a rampage mode and no one does anything about it oh yeah right because the servers are hardly active any more so my question is how does pawky have enough hours to watch the server like 24/7 and as soon as i join a server he's just there just curious does he have nothing better to do then just watch me and then ban me even tho i'm not even doing anything plus if i'm chat banned gagged and shop banned what rules am i breaking?
