Hey, I joined one of your servers and had a really great time. Unfortunately, members of the community found my skill at the game lacking, made fun of me and banned me from the server  Embarassed I don't want any trouble to come to me or the servers. Could I get unbanned please? I'm looking for a server that challenges me to be at my best. I hope you understand

Hickster

Edit: Also, while I was there, a middle eastern kid came onto the server. People on the server, some mods included, began chanting "Trump for President", "Get to the other side of the wall" and such. There seems to be an element of negativity towards minorities, or at least Muslims on the server. Thought I'd let you know.

Heya,

Good that you try to appeal this ban, nothing wrong with that. You got kicked off the server 2 times because you were trolling with teleporters. Multiple times people asked you to stop building exits on the wrong (troll) side of the map, all the way back to the first spawn, or next to a cliff which resulted in people falling off it.
On PL_Borneo, blu was attacking the first cap and you decided to build a tp exit (as red engie) at the last red spawn. Which resulted in alot of red players being scrambled all over the map. Even when people asked you to stop, you kept going to that place to build an exit.
The two reasons you give contradict with what I saw on the server, you got banned for trolling. The community was annoyed at you for ruining a fun match of tf2.

I confess, yes I was kinda trolling the match at the start. I was trying to act like a "noob" player and build my sentries and such at last point. I was using the teleporter to trick people but only when the game came to a stalemate, which made the Eureka Effect and pretty handy tool.
But at the time I was banned, I didn't intentionally move my teleporter to troll anyone. On Frontier, first point, I moved my tele exit opposite of RED first spawn(In that little building). I left it there and continued on. After we capped first, I put down and tele ent and made my way up the ramp to place dispenser, sentry. I seen (Madbits?) commenting on the "stupid teleporter". I had thought someone else took up what I was doing. I started making my way to 1st BLU spawn to set up Entrance back, cuz I like to be smart like that(?) Afterwards I was banned.
The two times I did purposely troll was on PL_Borneo and PL_Upward. I wasn't trying to use my tele for nefarious purposes on PL_Frontier. :)

Edit: I'm still very new to the server, I was on yesterday, I think.

One thing is to troll and just be a distraction (ask Big Daddy for advice, he is a professional at that Smile ), the other is to actively go against your team. It didn't seem you stopped with the teleporter when people constantly told you to and that plays a bigger role than just building a stupid teleporter.

Now that's a lie or a big misunderstanding of the situation. The majority doesn't take Trump seriously.

With regards to "Trump for President" That screams a particular person who tends to rage a lot and someone needs to tell that person to calm down

"Get to the other side of the wall"
If the context was a follow up to "Trump for President", then I think you have completely mis-interpret the mood of the conversation.  

"There seems to be an element of negativity towards minorities, or at least Muslims on the server"
I find this incredibly hard to believe which prompt me to make this post, with the past 2 years that I have been on THG I havent seen any of us swoop to that level.

Soooo, you were having fun trolling on 2 out of 3 maps? I'm fairly sure those on the receiving end were not having so much fun.

It's a payload, there is no stalemate, only a good defense.  It's not supposed to be a steamroll every (any) time.

I meant I had a great time playing. I didn't join purposefully to troll. I was there for an intense game of TF2. It was only in the lesser part of my time there did I do a little trolling. I didn't think it was that harmful to the gaming experience, I just found it a little funny, that's all.
Now I know. And knowing is half the battle.

Hickster, your ban length has been reduced from 'permanent' to one month. It's dated from when you were banned so will expire in approximately three weeks time (10-04-16 at 23:01).

Hopefully you'll use the opportunity to play co-operatively on the server, rather than trolling community members.

Although you're being given a second chance there won't be a third, so please bear this in mind when playing on the server.

A full month? That's totally excessive :(

Everyone else I seen in the bans section got off their bans immediately if they were small..

Everyone else? What bans are you referring to?

You seem to think that trolling community members on multiple maps is a trivial thing. We don't see it that way. It won't be tolerated and you need to understand that.

Rather than complaining about your ban length, you could be thankful that we've generously decided to reduce your ban length at all.

Nobody will mind if you decide to mess about on the server if it doesn't effect anyone else's game (going fist only heavy for example.)


But building teles at the other side of the map and forcing people to walk all the way back for a cheap laugh is not fair on them.

Yes Hickster, you will wait 5 more days, you were banned for a reason.

Please be patient, polite and we'll see you back on the servers soon.
Beware though, if you troll and annoy the regulars/admins again you probably won't get another chance!

Can the ban at least be shortened by a day? My ban will be up at the end of the weekend, and I may not have time to play during the week Sad
