Re: Ban appeals. Username:kaya Hello, I m the admin who banned you few months before, four months to be exact.

You did admit that you were cheating, that s nice. But actually, I have banned you for esp and no recoil too, but hey, that is an old, old ban, so you probably forget it! Here is the evidence:https://youtu.be/ve1iL00W5a4

The aloha community believe in second chance. But, that is not the first time that you get caught while cheating and that s not your first ban appeal : http://aloha.pk/index.php?topic=10979.0
In that previous appeal you said that you was sorry and that you won't do that again. And one year later, here we are. So, I m asking you, why should I trust you this time? How can I be sure that you won't cheat anymore? Difficult question hmm?

Let s get back in that actual appeal. You said that you was cheating cause:

1. The moderation isn t good on the server
2. There were 3 trusted hackers (!)

So I will answer you that you are totally wrong about those two things.

1) The staff do his best to protect the servers of cheaters, griefers, troll etc etc... We do it on a voluntary basis cause we like that game and we don t want to see bad person ruining the experience of other players. We can't be active 24/7, but I can assure you that the moderation is excellent and that we are doing our best to make players happy.
And by the way, I check the logs and you didn t even made a /admin. Calling the staff when you need help is pretty useful.

2) During that game, nobody was hacking, except you. About the "trusted hackers", we don t give that statut to anybody. The trusted players shown us that we can believe in them. They are trusted cause they are good and we want to protect them from votekicks.
I'm not saying that you will never see a trusted player cheat. Shit like that can happens. Just saying that I m on the staff since nearly 9 months, and I only see one trusted player cheat. And yes, that player is not trusted anymore.

An other little thing that you need to understand: If you see a cheater, call the staff and wait for them. The excuse of "other players were cheating so I m cheating too" is not fine. Just because other players cheat doesn't mean you have to do the same.

Before ending my response, I want to know two little things

1.How should I know that you won't cheat anymore?
2.Why did you take four months for making this ban appeal? And don t tell me that you haven t the time to do it. You been evading many times during these last four months.

Also please keep in mind that if you do evade your ban again, we will no longer tolerate it. That means perma ban with no chance for appealing as your appeals will all be DENIED.

I will wait for your answer. Thanks.

Re: Ban Appeal
I demand that another admin intervene and check the chat logs because part of my appeal was to complain about your professionalism in handling the ban in the first place. There is an inherent conflict of interest if you are the one handling the appeal.

each ban corresponds to the banning staff member, and the logs just proves laura's ban

<[RUSH] Debian> What?
<[RUSH] Debian> Why did you do that?
<[RUSH] Debian> I'm taking down enemy defensive positions. I always do this.
<[RUSH] Debian> Fuck this
[RUSH] Debian  disconnected
[RUSH] Debian  entered the game!
[RUSH] Debian running OpenSpades v0.1.3 on Linux
<[RUSH] Debian> Who the fuck is the admin?
* a disabled building for [RUSH] Debian
<[RUSH] Debian> Fuck you a
<[RUSH] Debian> Ban me bitch
<[RUSH] Debian> a is a tiny dicked pedo
<[RUSH] Debian> Ban me you fucking pussy

then you get banned

do you really consider this is asking?

Re: Ban Appeal
EDIT: And if it is the policy of Aloha to blindly issue moderation action to players without communicating with them first, Aloha does not deserve the player base it has either.

No, we don't and we reserve the right to only talk to you about the in's and outs by making an appeal. We give no warning before a ban for cheating as it interferes with how we do our job, any other action is warned before any action is taken. Unless the offense is bad enough to warrant an immediate action followed by a message explaining either in PM or Globally, at our discretion, explaining why. Further infractions of moderation actions taken, i.e. TB evasion, TK evasion etc, warrants a full ban for the medicated lengths depending on offense and/or severity.
