Name under which you were banned: [QRR][3rd-Bat] Wagwan. Pope
Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield:Anvil Gaming Studios Official EU8
What was happening when you got banned: Playing Bobby Shmurda - Hot N*gga in voip at the start of the round, which i did get kicked for
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): The day previously I had been warned for attempting to constructing swastika and the nword. 
Time and date when the account was banned: 14/05/2020, around 10pm BST
Timezone:BST
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): https://steamcommunity.com/id/Ospray2k14/
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): I was informed by Peep but I think the ban was by Rewan
Why should you be unbanned?: Although I have no excuse for the prior offence which was a partial reason, I believe that the admin who kicked and then banned me acted on a somewhat incorrect assumption that I was playing the song by Gangsta Rap which constantly repeats the N word. I understand that playing the song was wrong however I was unaware of the exact details of the rule. I assumed that since the musician was black and the usage lacked any racist context or malicious intention (although I understand that the admin may not have known this intentions) the song, although voip, would simply lead to a verbal to stop voip spamming at worst. I apologise for this rule break and do not intend to either voip spam, or make racist symbolism out of sapper materials again.

Why should you be unbanned?: Although it's still my fault I was following someone's demonstration. Shortly after I managed to glitch out of the map I think I was automatically banned. I didn't take any advantage of the glitch as I was banned shortly after. I'm sorry and I learned my lesson.

Name under which you were banned: [ 1er GGR ] GdrV. Fireball

Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield: All NA Army Battlefield Servers.

What was happening when you got banned: I used a glitch to get on top of the world border on Canyon.

Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): No sir.

Time and date when the account was banned: May 28th, 2020. 2 PM (+/-)

Timezone: CST

Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198851932189/

Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): !PeeP

Why should you be unbanned?: I think I should be given a second chance because I received no warning before I was banned. If I was told to get down, I would've had no issue in doing so. I did not have any malintent when I was up there anyway, I wasn't spawn trapping or anything, I was just running around on the top of the map, and if I do get unbanned, I plan on never doing it again.

What was happening when you got banned: I found a glitch on the map Canyon, was showing one of my friends how you could walk on top of the world border on the map.
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): No sir.

Why should you be unbanned?: I found this glitch interesting, and wanted to show people some cool things to do with this, I meant no malintent while on the top of this map. I also wasn't given warning prior to my ban, and if I was given a warning, I would have gladly gotten down in order to avoid a ban to keep playing this game. If I do get unbanned, I promise I will not be using this glitch again, and will not show anyone else this glitch.

Name under which you were banned: AbatedFawn
Which official server(s) are you banned from? It appears to be all servers.
What was happening when you got banned: I was playing the game, an admin kept putting the red text on screen and I told him to shut up.
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): I used to play really loud music through my mic and screech with my friends.  I also made my ingamename admin sucks because I got kicked and than banned.
Time and date when the account was banned: September (14th?) 2019
Timezone:EST
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): https://steamcommunity.com/id/AbatedFawn/
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): I do not remember as it was almost a year ago now.
Why should you be unbanned?  I now that I need to be more respectful when talking with players, admins and developers in HoldFast.  I really loved the game back when I had good internet and wanted to see how far the game has come and because my friends asked if I wanted to play with them.  I promise if I get unbanned, I will think twice saying anything rude in the chat or in voice and no longer blast music through my mic or change my ingame ID into something rude.

(Mute not ban)

Name under which you were banned: NiKo
Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield: EU8 / NA8 (event servers)
What was happening when you got banned: Did not happen during an event
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): None
Time and date when the account was banned: 6/8/2020 at 12:47pm EDT

Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): http://steamcommunity.com/id/TheSilverNiko
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): PeeP sent it to me
Why should you be unbanned?: People of the Holdfast Community, I ask, no, I beg, that you listen to what I have to say.

I am writing today about something that some may consider trivial, others may be glad that it happened, and others may join me in my quest for justice. NiKo, hereafter referred to as I, was unjustly muted on the EU8 and NA8 Official Servers. I have absolutely zero warnings related to chatting on those servers. This, of course, should make no sense to everyone reading this.

   So why? Why would the developers and administrators of this fine game mute (both in text and voip) a law-abiding citizen? Because they claim that he has a connection to “allah”. “allah” may be known to some as a toxic individual that is very active in public linebattles. To me, he is the antithesis of all that I hold dear. I, unfortunately, have been condemned to live in the same home as him, and use the same PC as him.

   I am a Straight Cis White Christian Male and would never sully myself by using the name “allah”. For some reason, despite that, the developers and administrators believe that I and “allah” are the same person. I absolutely reject all of these allegations.

   When I had questions about my unjust muting, I was met with hostility from a man named “PeeP”. This man, who I believe holds a grudge against me, could simply be targeting me. He could be abusing his power to harm those who stand up to him. Regardless, this must also throw shade on the verdict that he hands down. This type of behaviour has been seen in countless dictatorships, and must be curbed. I hope that this will be reviewed consequently.
   
I ask for someone to explain why I, a Straight, Christian, Cis, White, Law-Abiding Male, would be accused of being “allah” who breaks rules regularly. I soundly reject this, and I hope all of you will too. I will end this with a quote about Justice, “it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer”. This quote, by Benjamin Franklin (a hero to all American’s and to the world) should remind you that there is doubt, as to allah’s identity, and that therefore I must walk free.

Why should you be unbanned?: I did not know the rule against glitching out of the map was against the rules as the rules are not listed in game. I should have realized that using the sapper to do these things is not acceptable, and I will not do it again in the future. I am number one rocketeer, I very much enjoy playing the game properly and would like to continue to do so on the NA server with all the cool players there which I am friends with.
