- SCREENSHOT OF THE BAN MESSAGE OR THE TEXT OF THE MESSAGE DISPLAYED UPON ENTERING THE SERVER: N/A
- NAME OF THE ADMIN: Volcano
- APPROXIMATE DATE AND TIME OF THE BAN: Around December 2020
- THE SERVER YOU WERE ON WHEN YOU WERE BANNED: NAK #4 - Zeus
- ANY EXPLANATION OR JUSTIFICATION FOR WHY THE BAN SHOULD BE LIFTED: The reason for me being banned was a Misunderstanding of a Joke that I had said during a mission while I was Zeusing.
When I first looked into Arma as a game that I wanted to play and Zeusing to be my Hobby, I watched Liru the Lance Corporal on YouTube and took inspiration to mission building so much so that I did it as a pseudo job when Battlefield 4 was a major Milsim hub. Liru’s thing is that Goats are like his Idol on the missions when he portrays a god. (Warhammer 40k missions or spin off holidays ones). I fond those jokes funny, so I brought them here and the most I ever actually did was attach Goats to a player because he always asked for it and he enjoyed it.
The joke that I made was that “if anyone were to harm my children, I would rain down my wrath as the god Slanesh.” (A joke call back to Liru and some of the guys got it and we all had fun with it.)
I understand now that it was inappropriate to joke about something that is very clearly against the server rules but In my defense there was no intention to actually break the rule nor did I. When I made mission I filled in the time where most people didn’t want to make a mission or didn’t have one in mind and kept games going until people decided to get off. From the people I talked to about my missions there was really good feedback that it was going well and there was no major criticisms against my mission other than minute details.
On 4/10/22 I came back to the Zeus slot to see if I was still banned and I was able to play, I talked to Admin McNally who told me he didn’t see an issue with me Zeusing so I downloaded the mods and ran a mission later that Night and I had about 5-8 people playing and they all said that they had a ton of fun playing and that they would definitely do another one if they could.
The next day I was contacted by another Admin who’s name I don’t recall at this moment but he told me that I wasn’t supposed to be able to join and that it was a bug and to just not enter the slot and to file an Appeal towards my ban. I haven’t returned to the Zeus slot but have played among other missions since then.
Being able to freely Zeus on the Nak Server with a group of people who all wanted to do baseline misim events was probably my favorite time playing on Arma and on the Nak Servers. I do apologize for the inappropriate joke it wasn’t the place for me to make those and I can fully understand from an outside and out of context perspective what It may have seemed like but again I never meant or intended to break the rules, Just have fun with my players in my mission which I hope that I may be allowed to return to Zeusing once again in the Future on the Nak Server.
Thanks for the time to read over this Appeal. I patiently await a response.
