hehLord - Griefing, continued use of bad character names

Ban reason: Griefing, continued use of bad character names
Length of ban: Appeal for removal
Events leading to the ban: I was playing as a Diona and had my name changed from a humorous and inoffensive human-sounding name to a more Diona-sounding name by an admin, who politely discussed it with me via adminhelp. A few hours later I changed my name to something that I thought was humorous and vaguely fit the form of Diona names (“X of Y”): J"im Davis Creator of Garfield". I believe this ban occurred after I signed off for the evening, since I don’t remember seeing any admin messages. If I missed any admin messages, my apologies. I started falling asleep at my desk, so I’m not exactly sure what happened. 

I don’t know what the griefing accusation is in reference to. I remember my last few rounds of the evening were fairly uneventful. The last round I remember, I set up both the atmos distro system and the TEG, and I’m not sure what else noteworthy happened. Earlier rounds included me as a syndicate operative failing to e-sword anyone to death since my hardsuit made me too slow for pursuit. I would like to know what I was accused of so that I can avoid doing it in the future. 

Reason the ban should be removed: I understand that name I had chosen isn’t a good fit for a RP server. Diona names should be more tree and nature themed. I’ve reviewed the server rules and will adhere to them more in the future. The name wasn’t offensive and a few other players reacted to it in a way that indicated they also thought it was funny. 

For the griefing accusation, I would need more information before I can fully defend myself. I don’t think I did anything intentionally, and I’m not sure how serious my actions were. I assume it’s a bit serious if it attracted the attention of admins. I don’t aim to ruin the experience of other players, so I am sorry if my actions made the game worse for anyone else. 

I would like to continue playing SS14 since it’s a great game and provides a lot of entertainment. I will adhere to the server rules to the best of my ability if I’m unbanned. I will keep my in-game names more appropriate for whatever I’m playing as. 

As an addendum, I’d like to mention that I’m sorry for any inconvenience that I may have caused other players and that I will go out of my way to avoid inconveniencing or otherwise disrupting the gameplay experience of other players in the future if I’m unbanned. I will avoid whatever behavior or actions were considered griefing, and I’m sorry for any disruption I caused by committing these acts. I want other players to have enjoyable and interesting experiences with SS14 so that they continue playing. Empty servers aren’t fun servers.
