    shepherda's ban appeal

    IGN: shepherda

    Reason for ban: Not listening to staff

    Why should you be unbanned: I wanna start out by saying that this was not my best moment. Honestly, this was completely out of character for me, as people know I usually shut up when staff tell me too, and I look up to them. I want to apologize to Blackened_Dawn for not listening to her, and basically daring her to ban me. That was childish and immature of me. I want to apologize to 1Lysander for thinking and hoping I had changed and would stop when I didnt. I want to apologize to iwarriori for calling him out in front of everyone. I will not apologize for the behavior of Hollow_Dawn, as I did not ask him to go on there and say those things. I will let him apologize himself if he wants. I also want to apologize to the community for bringing drama and havoc to the server tonight. I hope I can get unbanned because this server actually does mean a lot to me. I was being immature, and I promise not to do anything like this again. I will say that iwarriori does say some mean things, but instead of bringing it up like I did tonight and not letting it go, I will ask him to stop, and if he doesn't I will ignore him. If he still does not stop, I will do what 1Lysander suggested. Take a screenshot and send it to a staff member. Again, I am so sorry that I let y'all down......again.

    Tell us a bit about yourself: I have played on CraftyMynes for a little less than a year now, and I still love to play on the server and make new friends. I think what makes this server so enjoyable for me is the family-friendly atmosphere. So much of the world is negative nowadays, so it's nice that we can have a place to play online that at least has a filter. The few things about the server that kind of dull my experience on there is that most of my friends left, sometimes the players can be a bit mean to each other, and I think I am on my 15th base now, because I keep getting raided. Other than those few things, this server is amazing!

    Strengths: I am pretty mature now, and know how to handle trolls, and misbehaving players. I still work at Arby's, and got another job in customer service at a movie theater, so I definitely know customer service and social skills. I am a lot less quick to anger, and like to look at all sides of the situation before coming to a conclusion. I am understanding, apologetic, and forgiving. I am also a great listener. If anyone ever needs anything, Minecraft related or not, I will always be here to help them.

    Weaknesses: I still have a tendency to talk back to people, but definitely not as much as before. Next year will be my senior year in high school, so I might be studying a lot more and looking for colleges. I ask too many questions sometimes and I guess that leads to annoying some people, but that is not my intention. I also over apologize which I do not mean to do.

    Why are you applying: I am applying because I would love to give back to the community who has helped me so much. I don't want anything in return for helping others, it's just in my nature and in my blood. I look up to a lot of the staff on here, and I would love to help them out and hopefully inspire someone else.

    Time Played on CraftyMynes: 14,286,686

    If you could pick one thing about yourself to change what would it be, why would you change it and how would you change it?: To be quite honest, I would change my outlook on negative situations. Instead of seeing all the bad and "testing" my friends and stuff like that I would try to find the positive. Like hey, at least I have friends. I would change this because I am letting my past control my future if I don't. I want to be in charge of my own future, and I want to finally be able to see the good in everything. I would change this by thinking about what to say before I say it, or what to do before I do it. It won't be easy, but nothing worth having ever is.

    Any Additional Information or notes: Thank you guys for always being there for me. And thank you for taking time to consider my application. I love y’all and this server so much! <3

    Timezone: EST/Southern US

    Strengths: I have been playing on CraftyMynes now for a while, and call this server my home. I know pretty much all of the long-time players, and get along with pretty much everyone who is nice. I am very helpful, and actually want to be a cop after I graduate high school. I am on a lot, when I am not I am probably in chemistry class, so I will be able to help those who need it very quickly. I am also very dependable. If anyone needs a friend to just sit and listen to them, I do that. I have a job at Arby’s, which has taught me a lot about customer service, and how to handle situations. So I will be very experienced when it comes to breaking up fights, or mean players. Overall, I think I would be a very nice, patient, and dependable helper.

    Weaknesses: I do have a bit of a temper as well. But I can be easily calmed down, and it takes a bit to get me to be angry. Also I am literally terrible at math and redstone. And pvp is just terrible. I suck at that.

    Why Am I Applying: I am applying for the helper position, because I love to help people. It makes me feel great when I help someone, and they return the favor and help others. I do not ask for anything in return for helping people, and will help them with issues outside of the server if it really is bugging them. Basically, I love this server, and the staff have done so much for me, and I would love to help keep the reputation of the server’s nice staff. I would also love to give back to the CraftyMynes community for not giving up on me, and helping them in return.

    Reason for ban:lying and creating unnecessary drama.
    I have already uploaded a ban appeal, and was supposed to be unbanned today. I tried to log on to the server, but it still says I am banned. Can someone please help me?

    Reason for ban: lying and creating drama
    Why I should be unbanned: I am here to tell the truth, finally. I lied, ok. Victoria was my alt. I am far from perfect, and my life is far from perfect. I lie sometimes just to get attention, and I always feel badly about it. I had originally made Victoria for trolling purposes. I just wanted to troll my friends on the server, but I did not want them to get mad at me. I have lots of trouble making and keeping friends, so an idea popped into my head. What if Victoria disobeys the rules and is mean to me so that I can see who my friends are. It worked, and lots of people came to my aid. I wasn't lying when I said something about me almost dying though. That is one of the reasons I decided to tell the truth. If I don't I am scared I will have a relapse. See, I was already out of it tonight, because my best friend is in the hospital for overdosing. It was a perfect opportunity for people to make me feel better. I should've talked to someone instead of lying. I am sorry I didn't. I don't think I will use Victoria anymore. Everyone knows now anyway. I didn't want to tell the truth because I knew I would lose friends. I have depression and anxiety and one of my big triggers for anxiety is losing friends and my big trigger for depression is feeling lonely. Like I said though, the moments I have had on this server cannot be found anywhere else. I love this server, and I am so so sooooooo sorry for what I did. I promise to never do it again, and I am sorry to all the friends I let down and lied to. I really do promise that this won't happen again, and I am sorry for wasting the staff's time. I hope that this is enough.

    Reason for ban: I don't know?
    Why I should be un-banned: I love this server, and I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone on here. The staff is very friendly, and willing to help you in any way they can. I was apparently banned for some admin thinking I was the same person as Victoria. This is not true. We apparently have the same ip address, and I don't know how those work. She is in the same house as me right now. She is connected to the same wifi as me right now. She uses one of my parents email addresses. This is because my parents took pity on her. She doesn't get to do much because her dad left. She lives in a one bedroom apartment with her single mother who drinks away her pain. My parents didn't know Victoria bullied me, because I never told them. I just kept quiet because I didn't want a relapse of suicidal thoughts and actions. She ended up coming on vacation to Tennessee with my family, because my parents wanted her to have at least one fun experience this Summer. They let her use their email address so she could have fun and talk to people. She doesn't get any of that. She isn't gonna play anymore, she's done. But I had so many fun times, and I honestly feel like banning me was a bit of an overreaction. I really do love this server, and I always try to play by the rules. I am sorry for all that has happened, and I promise it won't happen again. Please unban me.
    P.S. I feel like I let everyone down. Everyone was so inviting when I joined. Kat became my best friend, Phoenix was always there to listen to my rants about life, Ota always stood up for me, and rnc literally built me a house. It's little things like that that you can't find anywhere else. I'm thankful for the kindness these people and more have shown me, and I am sorry that I let y'all down.
