Im not going to follow the format because im pretty sure my ban was unofficial.
I got banned by DeOutlaw and his message was "$5000", he banned me from wc discord and I cant dm anyone on wintercrest. The ban doesnt make sense, I said im selling villagers, and DeOutlaw said he will buy one, and I said "1000000$" and then I said "jk" and he just banned me all of a sudden.
The day before im writing this I was banned for being falsely accused of hacking but they found out that it was a mistake but then I got banned all of a sudden.
And outlaw if your reading this, this isnt even funny. And this is very unprofessional of you, fr why would you do this. And I know you banned me from discord, I dont know how it works but you definitely did a certain ban so I cant msg any of the people associated with the wc discord.
You were banned without an appeal for multiple reasons, that I will get into immediately.
You were banned yesterday under suspicion of exploiting in order to gain monetary advantage. You appealed claiming you had nothing to do with it, and that you were randomly given $5000 from a “rich player” in which you conveniently forgot the Username of. The admin team has been working very hard in investigating this situation, and we gave you the benefit of the doubt yesterday and unbanned you after checking the payment logs. But as our investigation is on-going, we found some more interesting information.
I talked to you today, in order to allow you to tell your story before making any decisions. And I would like to highlight some points in our conversation.
You were talking about how you wanted to quit because you were tired of making money. And players were trying to encourage you and help you stay.
Xondium > guys should I just quit?
Xondium > i give up making more money
Player 1 > You shouldnt give up on a server that you like just becaue of the economy reseting
Player 2 > money can't buy happiness
Xondium > in minecraft it can
People continue talking to you in hopes of cheering you up, and I join, in order to hear your side of the story, keeping in mind our admin team has already gone through the logs and we have the proof we need, I still wanted to give you a chance.
DeOutlaw > Xon how much money did you have before the wipe
Xondium > 500 something
DeOutlaw > Oh thats easy, You can gain that in no time?
Xondium > well i had 900 something earlier
Xondium > but because those dupers gave me money
Xondium > i used the money and the admins took the money from my acc
DeOutlaw > Yeah but? So you'd rather keep duped money instead of working hard for it?
Xondium > because i used the fake money which i didnt know
Player 1 > well cause it was bad money, like blood money but worse
Xondium > no thats not the problem
Xondium > i didnt care that i lost the blood money
Xondium > i didnt rly want it anyways
DeOutlaw > Then? o;
Xondium > i was going to donate most of it
DeOutlaw > Then why are you sad
Xondium > but they took money from my real money
To which I started asking questions, to understand why you handled things the way you did.
DeOutlaw > Why did you spend the 5000 then? You didnt find it sus that someone just gave you 5000?
Xondium > bruh if someone with a low amount of money gave me it
Xondium > id get suspicious
Xondium > but i checked his bal and i was like maybe this guy is leaving wintercrest so
Xondium > hes just giving away money
Xondium > ik that im an idiot
DeOutlaw > I mean? Did you thank him at least then? XD
DeOutlaw > You're not an idiot Please stop saying that <3
Xondium > i didnt realize he gave me the money like an hour later
Xondium > i checked my bal
Xondium > and i had 5000 something
Xondium > and i was like wtf
I took a moment to step away from the game to go recheck the logs we have in order to hopefully validate what you have just told me, let's look at what I found.

Nowhere in your logs does it state that you checked his bal, almost like you knew it already? In addition to that, checking the times of when you were paid, and when you noticed your bal was only seconds apart. You never questioned or thanked the player, and certainly never brought it up to staff.
Also, if you didn't notice the money until an hour later, how could you have gotten his username to check his balance and know that he was a “rich person”? Your story is not exactly lining up straight.
You were not given an appeal for a reason. We do not tolerate lying to our staff members, and especially not exploiting. Your actions were very suspicious from the start and you continued to lie about what happened. You lied to the Founder and her staff team, who decided to give you the benefit of the doubt at first, but after deeper digging, we found a lot more evidence pointing towards a connection between you and the exploiter.
Because of your use of exploitation and continuous lack of honesty, I do not believe that WinterCrest is the community for you and therefore will not be welcoming you back into the server. This appeal is Denied. I wish you luck finding another server.
