Holdfast: Nations At War - Official Game Servers Ban Appeals
« on: October 22, 2017, 06:23:43 am »

Greetings Holdfast players! This topic will be for potential unbannings from the official servers, as we get an increasing amount of bans off the official servers it has become increasingly important these appeals are handled in a quick and efficient manner. Administrators may ask for more info regarding the circumstances of your ban, or comment on them, please make sure to respond promptly if possible.
 
This thread will have no relation to non-official servers and unban requests for those servers should be taken to their respective owners!
 
As an aside, being courteous and honest in your unban request will increase your chances of a shorter ban/unbanning, the flip side of this is also the case.


Do not message Administrators, Senior Administrators, or Developers on steam or any other medium in an attempt to revoke the ban.
Do not post regarding others unban requests.
Do not post multiple requests/spam the thread.
Do not post appeals on behalf of others.


Please read this format before posting! Applications not in this format will be ignored.

Name under which you were banned:Chazz Michael Michaels
Which official server(s) are you banned from?: Anvil Game Studios Official NA3 - Army Front
What was happening when you got banned: (Mute Appeal in chat and VOIP) i was never made clear on what caused this but I assume it was with the following, I read sections from both Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto, Said "Who here has the balls to drop a hard R in Chat" (this resulted in a warning from admin), and once I figured out who the admin was I said something along the lines lets throw shade at him. I was promptly muted in VOIP and started typing #freechazz or something similar in chat along with a fair amount of others. My chat was muted and a message from the admin said this was permanent and directed me here. (this was across the span of 2 - 3 matches)
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban?: I was warned to not have political discussions in Chat or VOIP
Time and date when the account was banned: Time: Unknown Date: 12/5/19
Timezone:ETC

Name under which you were banned: Richard
Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield: Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA2 - Army Front
What was happening when you got banned: All I was standing in front of a cannon, which prevented a player from shooting or aiming the cannon. I wasn't screaming or cussing, I was literally just standing in front of a cannon.
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
Time and date when the account was banned: It was around 8:20 P.M. on either January 2nd or 3rd
Timezone: Pacific Standard Time
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning)https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/765611
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): I don't know
Why should you be unbanned?: I think I should be unbanned because I don't think what I did was that serious but I do see that what I did was an a**hole move and the person that banned me did give me warnings to not do what I was doing. But, I didn't think that I would actually get banned for a small thing. I see what I did was wrong and I promise to never do that again, I learned my lesson.
Unbanned, make sure not to disrupt friendly artillery in the future.

Name under which you were banned: ManteauBlanc | Col Tigre Noir TS
Which official server(s) are you banned from? EU2 if not all?:
What was happening when you got banned: Chat ban, some person posted the worn out lame joke of "whitecoats, sounds racist" after I posted my recruit message. I responded to that by saying "nobody ever said "blackfish, sounds racist", goes to show something about racial propaganda" and then some other person said "only white people can be racist". That is political in nature but I did not know that would be breaking the no political discussions rule because I wasn't engaging in political discussion just responding to what they said by making an observation, because nobody ever did make the "sounds racist" joke about blackfish when they were still around in game but people always make that joke with white coats because coats are like robes and KKK wore white robes obviously.

I was almost instantly banned being told "due to 10 prior chat warnings". Wow, didn't know a log was kept like that but either way, any of those warnings are all from long ago and I wasn't even issued a final warning before this ban, just banned, how is that fair? If the admin simply said "that comment is political, no political chat, final warning or you will be chat muted" and that would be the end of it. I don't want to talk politics in game because it's stupid and accomplished nothing and nobody even knows what they're talking about anyway.

I can easily refrain from responding to peoples stupid bullshit, I'm here to play the game, and I can't play properly if I can't chat with my team mates to coordinate and strategize and all that.

Please revoke the ban, I will not need to be warned at all ever again because fuck that shit, I want to play the game properly which includes using the chat. If other people post political stuff I don't care, ignoring it.

Thanks for hearing me out.
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've been warned in the past on things obviously but it's all been worked out, I understand it all not I'm in line with the program, I had no idea that one little comment I made was in violation but I'm clear now.
Time and date when the account was banned: 1/9/2020 roughly 1:10 PM
Timezone: CST
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): steamcommunity.com/id/t-spin
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know):
Why should you be unbanned?: Because I'm clear now on what can't be said in game chat and intend to only use it for game purposes, working with the team, and especially recruiting. I recruit a lot of people so it really fucks me to not be able to do that, so the ban doesn't hurt just me it hurts my regiment. I will not use the in game chat for anything other than game talk as the rules outline, you have my word. It's not worth it saying anything that isn't directly about playing the game it doesn't do anything for anybody.
