who banned you: Excelsius_JP ban: Repeated use of X-ray plead: not guilty
Why should we unban you: I think you should unban me bacuse I got falsely banned. Me and dog created two strip mines once we got unbanned to regain our stuff and get ores and materials. You would have saw that if you looked at the mines. I don't understand how the usage of strip mines is X-ray.
Why do you want to come back to wintercrest: Because I was falsely banned for no reason and I want to come back to hangout with my friends.
Given the nature of your ban and suspected repeat offense, your mines will be investigated by our administrators. They will reply here when they come to a decision.
While we wait though, there's just one little thing about your mines that I find to be very fascinating and would like clarification on. While you claim to only be strip mining, there are a couple of spots where you and Dogdude719 randomly dig into the wall, extract diamonds, and then decide to fill in the holes with stone to try and conceal your mines. The stone has been rolled back, and this is what I discovered.
I took the liberty of marking these spots with big red circles. You can't miss em.
Care to explain why you went through the effort to fill these spots in with stone?

There were ores on the side of the mines sometimes. I mined them and sometimes since they were big deposits I continued down to see if there was anymore and sometimes there was. I filled them with stone to make it not have random tunnels in the strip mine and make it look nice, and also so mobs couldn't spawn in the tunnels. Those were not all diamonds, as on the sides of our mines there were only 2-3 that spawned on the side where we could see them. Most of the diamonds we found were through the stripmine itself.

I'm not one to judge, but I seriously doubt anyone cares about how a strip mine looks. To each his own.
...and also so mobs couldn't spawn in the tunnels
Three things I want to note here:
The chances of them spawning in those tiny tunnels compared to the main shaft are super negligible.
Notice the big green circles shown in the screenshot below. If what you said was true, all you would have to do is put one or two torches inside and there wouldn't be a problem.
I think you should be more worried about lighting up the main shaft over your itty bitty tunnels. Notice what's in the big red circle below. A big scary spider, and I don't like spiders
But wait, there's more!
There were ores on the side of the mines sometime
Those were not all diamonds, as on the sides of our mines there were only 2-3 that spawned on the side where we could see them.
Okay so according to your logic here, you mined in and magically found diamonds because you were originally digging out ores that were exposed on the main shaft wall and decided to continue digging to see if anything else was a little ways in? There's a few problems with your argument here.
Notice the spot marked by the big green circle (I know, it's so painfully obvious that I love abusing that big font). In this area, you mined solid stone, and continued to mine stone until you reached Diamond Ore marked by theBIG RED CIRCLE
I didn't notice this until after the fact, but what's up with the redstone and iron ore that actually is exposed in the main shaft? Just felt generous and left some goodies for the next lucky guy to somehow find his way into this mine?
TL;DR - I don't think you're very good at lying. I'd be very interested to hear what your excuses against these screenshots are, but to be frank we both know what's really going on here, and I think you need to re-evaluate your morals on cheating. If there's anything else you want to say, you're free to speak until an Admin announces their verdict.
Ok I'll admit I was cheating again. I tried stopping but once you start, it's really tempting to keep cheating because you get benefits. I'm still trying to stop cheating and it's hard. Even though I cannot defend myself over the second screenshot, I'll just say that I didn't know that mobs couldn't spawn in the tunnels, and that I have OCD so when there are random tunnels around it bothers me. I didn't mine the ores on the floors because we didn't need redstone and had enough iron. Well played Excel, and have a great day 😀
P.S- Can dog be unbanned because he wasn't X-raying. We were in a discord call and I told him where to mine and stuff. He wasn't xraying.
Since you know what happens next, I'll just say it and be done with this.
Your lack of respect for our rules is clear in your willingness to lie and continue cheating after I warned you in your previous appeal. While we strive to give each player a chance to show they can learn from their mistakes, X-ray is not an offense we give third chances for. For these reasons your appeal is denied. I understand that the temptation to take what you cannot easily have is strong, but that does not justify breaking our rules. I would advise searching for an anarchy server with rules far more lax than ours if you wish to cheat like this. I'm sorry to say, but WinterCrest just isn't the server for you.
In your friend's case, normally I would state they need to write their own appeal. However, while your friend was already banned for grief by Cas, I have discovered X-ray by them and sent an in-game mail warning them not to do it again or they would be permanently banned. The fact that he did not use an X-ray mod or client to gather diamonds illegally does not excuse him from punishment. It still classifies as cheating, and like you, they chose to ignore my warning and continue doing it.
You are permanently banned. Best of luck to you on finding a new server to play on.
