First of all thank you for being honest in your appeal, although I wish you were as forthcoming when I asked you about this on the server earlier. If you had just admited to using x-ray, I would have let you kept playing at the cost of your one time allowed appeal. Instead, you opted to lie about never using x-ray, then changed your story when I confronted you with proof. You claimed to only have used it when you first joined, and this was also also a lie.
This mine was dug out 3 hours before I confronted you, and you've been on WinterCrest for almost 2 weeks. On top of messaging me saying that your "son" did it, actively begging to be unbanned, trying to rejoin Discord after your original account was banned, and having an overall lack of effort in this appeal, you've come across as very untrustworthy. Why should I believe you won't do this again? As Cas states in her post on writing ban appeals:
2. Use effort: Moderators want to unban you, but not unless you actually put some effort into trying to get unbanned. Write a detailed appeal explaining what you did wrong, why it was wrong, and what you should've done instead. Make us want to unban you. One or two sentences/no apology makes us want to deny your appeal.
As it stands, I cannot approve this appeal. If you have anything else to add to this, feel free to edit your post or reply below.
The problem isn't that you filled out your appeal incorrectly. It's because you didn't bother to put any effort into it. An appeal is your chance to show us that you understand why you were banned and why it's wrong to do what you did. This is especially true in the case of cheating. A ban appeal is not something you quickly fill out and throw on the forums expecting a free unban. It's a chance to apologize and to convince us that you CAN be a productive member of our community.
I have a very hard time believing this won't happen again if I were to unban you now, given your recent behavior and dishonesty. It's not because of a secret word/sentence count you didn't meet. You've shown that you simply do not care about our rules and are just looking for a quick and easy way to be unbanned with no remorse for what you've done.
For these reasons, your appeal is denied.
