Reason for Ban: Breaking rules after staff warnings
Why I should be unbanned:
CM is a place I've learned to call my second home, a community that brings joy, excitement, and help get's me through the day sometimes. To be honest, I don't play for Minecraft, I play for the people, who I've gotten to know very well and created strong friendships. I've been quite lonely this year as many of us during Covid, and being an extrovert it's been difficult. CM changed that. Last week it was my 18th birthday and I received so much love from the entire CM community and decided I wanted to give back.
Being a Christian myself, I have a lot of my items named after biblical verses to uplift me and give me encouraging reminders throughout the day and when I decided to give away my gear to the community who's given so much to me, I didn't think that would be a problem. A mod very respectfully asked me to stop putting the stuff at spawn chests which I did and instead thought it would be nice to personally give my loot packages to others to share the love I've received. Being so grateful to this community, my only intentions were to give back the love I was given as Christ has taught me. I hope you can see I only had good intentions, and am surprised by this outcome.
Now that I've given everything away, this won't be a re-occurring problem in the future. I've never been banned or even thought it would happen but now that I have a better awareness of the rules, I will find a better way to share encouragement, hope, and love with my fellow players.
Thanks again staff for your time, and for helping lead one of the best communities I've been a part of.
I really appreciate all of you, thanks for everything :)
