Littlesuker - I spammed the n word

Ban reason: Racist, spammed nword
Length of ban: Until I appeal
Events leading to the ban: Last night, (12/30/2023), I was playing SS14 while under the influence of alcohol, which substantially impacted my judgment. My first error was playing the game while under the influence, which impaired my ability to make sound decisions. I had a talk with another participant during the game. I was playing as a bartender that round when I got jailed for shooting the clown with beanbag slugs for jumping the counter and breaking a glass. This irritated me since I didn’t damage the clown; instead, I shot him with beanbag slugs. I started cursing and suppressing the n word with “*”. The detaining officer began daring me to use the word without censorship, continuously encouraging me with expressions like “go ahead, really say it, I dare you.” At first i resisted. However, under the combined influence of alcohol and the persistent goading, I unfortunately succumbed to the pressure and uttered the word.

Reason the ban should be removed: Since the ban, I’ve given much thought to my actions and their influence on the community. I recognize that words have power, and that what I said, regardless of context or provocation, was detrimental and violated the game’s community’s ideals. What I’d want to emphasize as a cause for lifting the ban is my previous positive record and commitment to the community. This slip in judgment was unusual for me and occurred in unusual circumstances. I’ve been a member of this community for over a year and have made positive and useful contributions. Furthermore, I have taken real efforts to ensure that such an incident never happens again. Personal obligations such as not playing the game when under the influence of alcohol and consciously avoiding bad encounters in game chat are examples of this. Everyone, in my opinion, deserves the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. The lessons I’ve gained from this experience have been significant, and I’m determined to use them not only in gaming but in all facets of my behavior. Not only would restoring my access allow me to rejoin and actively contribute to the community, but it would also serve as a monument to the principles of understanding, education, and second chances.

Due to your attempt to evade your ban, you are banned indefinitely. You may appeal your ban, but only at least 6 months after your last ban evasion attempt, and only with a voucher of good behavior from another SS13/SS14 server.

A voucher of good behavior should be obtained from a well-known or decently active SS13/SS14 server. If it is a mainstream server, we recommend using that server’s admin-help to ask for a voucher from one of the administrators explaining that you are trying to appeal a ban on SS14’s Wizard’s Den and want to show you have been a problem-free player during your playtime on the server. A voucher should be indicative of at least a few months of play. If the voucher is not from a mainstream server, let us know and we will figure out a way to verify it.
