How do you plead?: Guilty/Not Guilty (If not guilty please provide your side and explain as to why you are not guilty below.) I'm not guilty and am not using any modified hacks of any kind. I'm sure I was banned for finding so many ores and diamonds very quickly, and I do so by mining two blocks above bedrock as I usually find diamonds there and more. I also listen for lava as it usually is a cave spawn which generates ores and usually diamonds on the walls of the lava also.
Who banned you: (This will be found on your ban message.) Wizkrys
Why should we unban you?: I'm not using x-ray or any hacks.
Why do you want to come back to WinterCrest: Favorite towny server to play on and I spend most of my Minecraft time on this server.
So I'll try to keep this as straightforward as possible - you say you weren't x-raying, but I have pretty solid proof to believe otherwise.
For starters, you excavated almost 50 diamond ore in very close proximity to each other, most of it in just under an hour. Maybe you were just insanely lucky and happened to find a lot of diamond ores by chance? I'd understand it more if you were strip mining, because then that would make sense - but you weren't. You were teleporting around to various locations in the world, working your way into caves and then on several occasions digging right to diamonds. Maybe you just had a really lucky hunch about the general location of diamonds? In your appeal, you state how you tend to mind close to bedrock and also keep an ear out for the sounds of lava, and while I will acknowledge that most of the diamonds you found were closer to bedrock, there were rarely any mines you had that were even remotely close to lava pools, making your defense only partially true. Let's actually take a look at some of your mines:
Pretty sporadic, isn't it? Random turns out of nowhere, arbitrary staircases, each eventually leading to diamond ore. Then in some cases, you just... stop. You mine the diamond ore, then turn around and go mine somewhere else instead of continuing on a somewhat normal mine. If you had any actual pattern or rhythm to your mining, then why would you be mining so inconsistently? The answer to that question is that you don't have a pattern, you don't have a set method. Unless you've got some otherworldly extraterrestrial super powers that the rest of the world has yet to discover and harness for their own uses, you were using an x-ray modification. Your mining is just too spot on for typical x-ray users for me to believe anything otherwise.
All of that being said, this appeal has been denied. I wish you luck in finding a server that will be a good fit for you.
