- ANY EXPLANATION OR JUSTIFICATION FOR WHY THE BAN SHOULD BE LIFTED:
I apologise. NAK Tac was in it’s infancy and other members not happy with it progress left, I included.
Having access to the email roster for NakTac I was persuaded by others to reach out for recruiting efforts.
That decision ended up in a permanent ban. I decided to not poke the bear and just leave it be.
Since then those that have left have either returned to NAK or have dispersed across the community into other units some european like !!! !!! !!! !!! ny !!! !!! !!! !!! ng and myself a larger Milsim unit (200+ members).
Essentially, it’s been several years, I apologise, and there wouldn’t be access to any tools to recruit because I wouldn’t have a mailing list and no need to do it in a gaming server which is also closely monitored in game chat via RCON software. I also have no intention to rejoin NAK as a member that would afford me any avenues to do recruiting, just access to the server for play.
The only purpose of the ban removal was to fly or shoot along side my unit !!! !!! !!! during downtime or non zeus days.
Thank you for your consideration.
Like many other thriving communities and groups, NAK relies on its player base to populate the servers and support the efforts that are taking place in order to succeed. Written, universal rules that may not have been in place during the early stages of the community development were deemed to be a necessity so that everyone could play on the same terms, know what to expect even before joining the server, and know that enforcement will be handled in a similar fashion by the admins. Players have been provided with several ways to leave feedback (forums, ban appeal, TeamSpeak, etc.), whether to express gratitude or if they do not like what is taking place.
Like many new ideas that are implemented to improve player’s enjoyment on NAK servers, each are evaluated based on trial and error and community feedback to determine what the needs of the community are and where improvements can be made. NAK Tac, being an element of the overall NAK community was one of those implemented ideas. As part of this restricted group, players were provided with sensitive information and held to a certain level of trust to have access to that.
By using this information for recruitment purposes and to intentionally draw people away from NAK, is to reduce the player base on our servers and in our community. When trust is broken, it is difficult to recover from. NAK has seen many successes over the past several years and to allow a player back into the community who has violated that trust seems counterproductive. We do not like to limit player access to our servers and the community, but sometimes pruning is needed for NAK’s overall health and survivability.
Although we appreciate the mature approach and openness you have displayed in submitting this ban appeal, we will not be reversing the permanent ban that was put in place. I hope you can understand this decision at an organizational level. One suggestion to make here is to reach out to the other Arma groups you play with and communicate your concerns with them in hopes of promoting change and improving your level of enjoyment before taking other actions that may be regretted. We wish you the best of luck.
