How do you plead?: I believe I am not guilty as I cant remember any instance I had advertised. Which leads me to believe it was inadvertant and I would like to be shown my offence so I can prevent it in the future.
Who banned you: Inspiredbypaddyy
Why should we unban you?: I have been respectfully playing wc since Dec. 2015 and have put a lot of real money into this server. Made a lot of good friends and not ready to let that go.
Why do you want to come back to WinterCrest: Ive been playing here for so long and have a lot of good friends still playing that I would like to see again.
Because of the behaviour of the players recently banned for misconduct, the server has adopted a zero tolerance policy about solicitations to their groups, discord or otherwise. You are banned because we knew you had been part of that group in the past. We let it slide since you weren't in the main group at the time of their bans.
Had you not solicited people to join that server, we would have just let it be. Now, however, we can confirm that you are in contact with and support a group of ex-players who have caused a great deal of upheaval on the server. We have dealt with them petitioning our players to leave, and received multiple attacks on the WinterCrest discord, the WinterCrest forums, the WinterCrest Minecraftforums and our main server and console. We do not condone this behaviour and do not want our player base to be exposed to people who believe that this is appropriate recourse when you dont get what you want.
In truth, we would like to unban you, but think at the moment that would be unwise on our part. You are welcome to appeal in a few months after the animosity of the ex-players dies down. In other words, this isn't a definitive, "no": it is a "have a think and get back to us later" "no." For the time being, the ban stands. Hopefully, we will see you in the future. Until then, I wish you luck finding another server.
