Ban Appeal

Ban reason: “Metacommunications with JeffBesooos”

Length of ban: appeal only

Events leading to the ban: Me and a friend were playing together on Leviathan and the Admin contacted us after a while. We should stop metacommunications… we didnt. That basically led to the ban.

Reason the ban should be removed: I learned my lesson and i admit that the ban was nothing more than a correct consequence for the actions i did. I will strictly follow the ruleset of the servers in the future.

I can see you have very little hours in the game, we have strong rules regarding meta-communications as it provides a unfair advantage in game. 

Here are the rules surrounding it: https://wiki.spacestation14.io/wiki/Server_Rules#Do_not_use_external_means_to_communicate_with_other_players_[Metacomming]

If you are just trying to pick up some more of the game mechanics there is the guidebook in game Numpad 0, the wiki and some explainer videos here:

If your playing with a friend make sure all your communication is via in game chat so it doesn’t provide an unfair advantage. plus if you are chatting in game there are more opportunities for other interactions with other players enhancing your experience.

I’ll remove the ban now, just be aware a stricter ban will be applied if we see it still ongoing.

To enable speedy review of all appeals, appeals that meet certain requirements may bypass the standard, often lengthy, review process. Our banning policy requires appeals which are denied using the speedy review process have this notice placed on them. Any of the following criteria typically make an appeal eligible for the speedy review process:

  • the ban length is less than or equal to 14 days,
  • the appeal is older than 7 days, or
  • the result of the appeal is obvious.

In some cases, the banning admin may process the appeal. The banning admin cannot process the appeal if:

  • the facts that led to the ban are disputed,
  • the appeal makes a claim that the admin who placed it was biased, or
  • the ban was not within the ban guidelines.

You may contact a head game admin if you believe this appeal was handled improperly, but should be aware that this will typically only result in a review of the processing of the appeal itself, with the appeal being re-opened if an issue is found. An appeal is considered to have been processed improperly if the criteria to use the speedy review process was not met, or if the facts which the processing admin relied on to process the appeal were incorrect. You must concisely describe why you believe the appeal was handled improperly. If no issue is found with the processing of the appeal, the appeal itself will not be re-reviewed. If, in bad faith, you claim that an appeal was handled improperly, the reviewing head admin may decide to extend the time you must wait before you appeal and/or extend your ban duration. You can find a full list of staff, including head game admins at the staff directory.
