In game name: Littlefear22204
Reason for your ban: Theft
How do you plead?: Not guilty. We were messing around because the the chest whenever we opened it said don’t take so I took wheat, leads, a crafting table, and a normal diamond sword. We were messing around and I was about to come back and put it back cause I wanted to see what happened also I didn’t even get a warning he only warned one person.
Who banned you: (This will be found on your ban message.) Excelsius_JP
Why should we unban you?: Because we were just messing around on stream and we have proof at we were fucking around. Also he is blaming lilfoxxy aka dazziboi and she wasn’t even apart of it and now she just got a warning for arguing for staff. This is kinda bs at this rate we will literally return it we were fucking around.
Why do you want to come back to WinterCrest: Because I love this server and the people and I play with my friends a lot on wintercrest. And we have a lot of progress. And if anything we should have all gotten a warning not one person.
This appeal will be addressing the bans of Littlefear22204, Cinder_SnowWolf, and KinoKat. However, due to how we handle appeals on this server, each player will have to make his or her own appeal to be unbanned. I will reference this appeal if Cinder_SnowWolf and KinoKat wish to appeal at a future date for convenience in order to make this process faster.
There are a lot of things that happened tonight that ultimately lead to this point, so feel free to ask if there's anything you're unsure about. The first thing I want to address is the reason why I banned you. Earlier in the day, KinoKat was caught stealing a stack of diamond blocks, but I decided to give them a chance to return them and avoid a ban. They did so without further incident and left. Later on I was alerted again and went back to see the three of you (Littlefear22204, Cinder_SnowWolf, and KinoKat) in the house. From my point of view, Kino invited the other 2 back and then proceeded to take and remove a bunch of items in quick succession. Staff get pinged every time you take and remove items out of those chests. Later on I saw Dazzaboii appear in the list so I asked them if they were tpa'd to that house (since I thought they were an innocent person who got dragged into the situation). Because of KinoKat's presence (from the earlier attempted theft) and the fact that the 3 of you were spamming the log data with all of your chest transactions, I took preemptive action and banned you all. The reason why Dazzaboii was not banned is because I assumed they did not understand what was happening (see reason above). This was a mistake on my part as I did not ask the four of you to leave beforehand, and for that I apologize.
After doing the math on everything, I came to the conclusion you in-fact did not steal. However that does not mean you guys were innocent. Although it doesn't not explicitly say in the /rules or at /warp rules, touching someone elses stuff is not allowed. There is no reason to remove things from someone's chest without their permission. It does not belong to you. Even as a joke, it's against the rules. In real life you wouldn't take money out of a cash register and then claim to put it back later as a joke would you? It's one step away from theft, and therefore we have to take these matters very seriously.
It wasn't until later that Dazzaboii told me in PMs the four of you were in Discord and that they were streaming the entire thing, which I personally find shocking. Especially since Daz claimed to not condone that behavior. Yet they participated in it nonetheless despite knowing the rule about grief. The reason why Daz was later warned is because they continued to argue against your bans for two messages after I told them nicely to stop (I'll include a pastebin of our chat logs at the bottom if you disagree). We have a process for handling bans and until all the evidence was gathered, we could not move forward.
While it may be amusing to see some of these messages pop up on your screen again and again:imgur.com/a/TCv2Q7N
They clearly state that what you were doing is wrong and that you could be banned for it. And because you continued to ignore these warnings, it demonstrates a lack of respect for our rules. While you did not steal, the evidence gathered shows that a ban was appropriate for this situation. In this case the reason would be Trolling. I will update this before unbanning anyone.
In the future I would highly advise you to take these matters more seriously. Do not touch anything that isn't yours. If this happens again, we may not be as forgiving. Please leave that house immediately upon returning and do not go back to it. Take any items you still have to /warp returns. If you have any grievances towards my ability as a Moderator, feel free to contact an Administrator about it. For Cinder_SnowWolf and KinoKat: Please appeal using your own words and accounts.
This appeal is approved and you have been unbanned Littlefear22204. Welcome back to WinterCrest.
