Paradoxpanic(ss14) - .paradoxpanic(Discord) / Self-Antag for slipping the cap during nukie event

Ban reason: “Self Antag, Slipped and cuffed capt while nukies were chasing them”
Length of ban: 3 days
Events leading to the ban: I was playing my clown character “Mr. Pockets” and whenever I’m playing Mr. Pockets, my favorite bit to run is “Looking for Clown Wife”. This is where I take the Sexy Clown Mask and prowl around the station making friends until I slip someone, cuff them, and put the mask on them so I can declare to the station that they are my Clown Wife. So this round, I decided to take the clown’s locker out with me as another tool for my antics.

I also made a call using my banana phone, asking for the perfect clown wife, which I believe is what prompted the admin Repo to take notice and start following me around. As I was typing in the Common radio channel bantering with the crew about my plans for a clown wife, I noticed I was being pushed into my locker very slowly. I let it happen and suddenly my locker changed to a metal one, was welded and no matter how hard I wanted to get out, I was trapped. I was still having fun and it only lasted for a few minutes as the crew surrounded me trying to help me escape, only to find I was russian nesting dolled into multiple lockers. Eventually I escaped for a short while with someone who decided to be my body guard.

To make the story shorter, I was trapped with the body guard in another locker again, and this time was being shoved around the station as people laughed and had a generally good time, including the captain who had just shown up.

I was wearing a ghost outfit and shouted “BOO!” chasing the screaming captain down the hall, intending to take the captain as my clown wife for my bit. Little did I know, Nukies had stormed the station inside a camo box, which we didn’t see due to running around the halls very quickly. From my point of view, a nukie appeared out of thin air and began chasing us and the rest of the crew who were standing around, firing off shots in all directions. I had thought this was another Admeme and that the admin had spawned in as a nukie to help me complete my goal of obtaining my clown wife because I had asked for it with my Banana phone. The captain ran into the bridge and I chased her inside, seizing my moment and slipping her and handcuffing her. As I fumbled around in my bag, 3-5 nukie operatives stormed the bridge and killed the both of us within a second. Because they had the captain’s tools, they were able to take the nuke and arm it immediately. I was messaged about it and as I tried to explain myself, still confused that the admin was now no longer on my side, but before I could explain myself fully, I was banned and it was rightfully so given their point of view of the situation.
Reason the ban should be removed: It wasn’t until I watched the replay back that I had finally put the pieces together and realized my mistake. I had thought that the single blood red that I saw chasing us was in fact still the admin messing around with me because he had been doing it all round. Had I been paying attention and not focused on my silly bit, I would have realized what was happening and I wouldn’t have done that to the captain. I do feel bad about it and it pains me to see this stain on my record despite my heafty play time, especially since none of this would have happened if the nukies didn’t appear out of thin air because of the camo box. I wouldn’t have been confused and none of this would have transpired. Something like this will never happen again and I really want to try and get this whole mistunderstanding cleared up.
Sorry for the long story, but its got a lot of context, here’s the replay if you’d like to review it:

My ban time is up, so I guess its a moot point now, however I’ll keep the appeal up simply for postarity and to maintain my testimony as to what happened should this ever have to come up again in the future.

I have reviewed the appeal and the replay.

While you were part of a minor event during a time of relative calm pre-nukies welded locker trap, it was promptly stopped and all were opened fairly quickly, upon the nukies arriving on station.

The jump from “I am being put in magic lockers” to “the captain is to by my clown wife and nukies are here to help me” feels a little to extreme of a jump.
Events are much more thought out than this and would be much better explained or influenced.
Nukies were known to the station, a mere hallway away, firing at you and the captain, yet you decided to continue slipping/cuffing the captain and then attempting to put the mask on them while both are being shot at.

The ban is/was entirely justified.
This appeal is being denied.

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.
