  1. Obviously didn't comment on the first two paragraphs that Bowen sent because they weren't questions... Any comments on anything but a question would not help the situation. Through this ban appeal I have tried to emphasize that the rule that I "broke" is extremely unclear, and justify why I did whatever I did in the video ( and why I thought it was okay to do it). Anyone that has carefully read through my responses/initial unban appeal responses can see that. I fully understand what you want me to say. I can see why so many bans could be a problem in an admins POV. But yet again, I've said that no such action will be repeated and I will try to the best of my ability to stay within the rules and have a good time without breaking them. Another ban would most likely be my last one for quite some time so the best choice I have is to be careful, should another chance be given here. I hate repeating myself and a 5-paragraph-long apology would not help the situation. Everything I could say to defend myself has already been stated. Before you take any actions (whether that is a ban or an unban) please understand that I comprehend why so many bans aren't acceptable and please read through some of my responses again. That is all that I can say without repeating myself, If you have any other questions that have not been stated in this thread, I'd be happy to answer them.
  2. I'll not be replying to the first two paragraphs, even if there is a lot to comment on them I feel like it will stretch the appeal out and waste more of our time. I'll address the 3rd paragraph which actually is substantial. As I said previously, I've been playing very actively for more than 4 years, getting my self in hostile situations with my group that can always end one way or another, depending on the person that I'm roleplaying with. You responded to this by saying that the vast majority hasn't broken rules in the same amount of time, and my response to that is that there is another huge percentage of this community that has broken even more, therefore not being here now. 4 years is a lot of time for a person to make mistakes and correct them. The question shouldn't be "how many bans do you have" but "how are you willing to move forward from this point", and I've already replied, I can promise you that it will not be repeated. If I had trouble sticking with the rules, I'd be gone from the first two years. Even though the rules are vague, I've tried to follow them in the best of my ability and will continue doing so, slip ups will happen if you engage in 100 scenarios in a day. With that being said I'd like to repeat myself yet another time, my actions that lead to this ban will not be repeated and if they do then you may simply quote this sentence right here and permanently ban me. Again, thank you for your time and effort and hope that I've responded to your questions.
  3. To be fair, yes I do. From my first days in RPUK I've seen white-listed factions abuse the VDM Animation and spam "Shift-R". When you see the majority of people in the server, including those factions zip-tie or taze players in the VDM script, you are obviously going to follow along. I've never seen anyone report another player for taking advantage of the vdm animation (in the way that you claim I took advantage of it). And please do explain how is the staff member here "dealing with the issue at hand" rather than poking holes in my ban record? How is a reminder of my ban record relevant to the issue here. As I said, it is the administration that knows when enough is enough, not me. And since I'll have to repeat it again, now that I know that initiating while someone is VDM'd it will not happen again. I am now aware, me and my group will not be taking advantage of it, but we will be reporting factions and players that are, I think it's time this rule is enforced and made known to the average player playing on your server. Once again, thank you very much for your time. I am more than happy to answer any further questions you may have that are of course relevant to the subject.
  4. Well, taking into consideration that the last rule I broke was made up mid-conversation in Teamspeak, and my last ban was extremely unfair since the roleplay standard of the person that reported me was way worse than mine, I think it is safe to say that 7 of them are valid.. Bear in mind that all of these bans are over a course of 4+ years. 4 years of consistent gameplay on a single server gets you into a lot of different scenarios and situations in which you may or may not make a mistake. With that being said, I can not give you a number that defines how many bans are enough, but I can tell you that the same offense will not be repeated again. It is up to the administration of the server to judge when enough is enough, but I'd say that being banned for something that I wasn't aware of nor is stated clearly within the rules of the server should not be my last ban/chance. Hope I answered your question while emphasizing the fact that rules should be stated clearly and this ban should not be upheld as ones interpretation of 'Common Sense' is different to another's which creates a lot of ambiguity around ones decision to enforce the rule and uncertainty to the players that can not clearly define it.
  5. 76561198154073559 Apologies, this should be the correct one.
  6. Unban Appeal for AndreasM In-game Name: Andre Server: Malden Life Steam ID: 76561198154073552 Ban ID: I dont know how to find this.. Reason given for your ban: C1.7 In your own words, please type why you think you were banned.: I was banned because I took advantage of a player being in the VDM script and initiated on him, giving him no time to initiate back/defend himself during the initiation. Why should we unban you ?: Well to start off, I was initially banned for VDM (1.1), which shows that the admin that banned me took little to no time to examine the evidence that lead to my ban. After hopping on teamspeak and talking about it, the evidence was examined once again and my ban suddenly changed to C1.7 Common Sense. Even when i explained that I was not aware that I am not able to initiate on a player thats in the VDM "animation", the admin's response was that "we usually dont initiate on players that are on the ground, we give them time to get up" The VDM was not my fault therefore i thought it was okay to initiate. Since it clearly isn't, I will not be doing it again. After all, that's the point of a ban. The Common Sense rule is so unclear and vague, so even though i did not get banned for the reason i was initially reported for, an admin came in and banned me for something that is not even stated in the rules. Not much else to say here, simply a "rulebreak" which i was not aware of, and wont be repeated again. Please confirm that you have read the unban appeal process and rules: Yes
  7. Hello Benjamin and thank you for taking the time to report me. It is honestly quite funny that a (role)player like you tries to report me considering your roleplay standard is this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IonyX407B0Q In every single roleplay scenario that we've seen you participate in, you get extremely frustrated and toxic towards other players for no actual or substantial reason. Now about my roleplay, throughout the situation you were speaking over me therefore making it hard for you to hear what I'm actually saying. You were warned many times to not leave the area but to place your hands above your head. Not only did you not do that, you attempted to get back in one of the two vehicles then you simply face me, alt-tab from the game, and finally get shot due to you not complying after being given plenty of time to. Your communication with your friend was awful, and because of it you could not hear anything I was saying. Yet again at the end you got mad, did not try to resolve the situation in any way shape or form and finally disconnected without even waiting to bleed out right after you said this (bottom left of the picture): Now to start naming your mistakes in this roleplay scenario, since there are a lot of them : A) (1.8) Threats to report / disputes / Breaking RP in Voice. There are so many people on the server with all different points of view and disputes and disagreements are all part of the game, however please do not discuss them in-game also do not break RP in voice. For example if someone has RDM’ed you discussing this on the server or saying “I am going to report you” is not allowed. Please use the forums or teamspeak to report or discuss only. Exception: You may contact someone using the text system if they are not on teamspeak or on the forums. Please only attempt to make this contact in effort to resolve the issue, not to antagonise the other player/users/members. B) If you skip to 3:40 in YOUR video you can hear yourself saying "Shoot him, shoot him". Obviously that would lead to RDM as there was no proper initiation nor roleplaying from your part on me. Therefore, encouraging your friend to RDM. (C1.8) Forcing or encouraging another member of the community to break a rule. C) You were speaking to your friend and never hot-mic'd anything in game, breaking 2.5. (2.5) You must hot-mic all communications that have been made over teamspeak when they are relevant to influencing the course of roleplay. This means that if you are communicating to fellow team members via Teamspeak and you are in audio proximity range of another player (they can hear you), you must hot mic any commands given so the rival player can overhear. This rule does not apply if both sides are engaged in a gunfight together. And finally, since you just figured that Alt-F4ing was your best option and did not even wait to be revived/bleed out while in an active gunfight, combat logging/rage-quitting: 1.5) Combat logging at any point during RP is exploiting. Some examples of this include: logging out during a firefight, being chased by the police, arrested by the police, while dead awaiting a medic, logging out in order to save gear, rage-quitting, logging out whilst restrained/detained. Punishment is a permanent ban. Staff can make an informed decision depending on if you’ve made an attempt to resolve the issue. We do suggest you attempt to rejoin the server and continue the roleplay (try messaging them with the mobile system first). Thank you again for your report, I'd be more than happy to help you resolve this, as it will be more of a problem to you, than it will be to me. Message me via the forums or in-game if you wish to speak about it in Teamspeak.
  8. Fam Wilco could not be arsed to even speak to his own community, asking for a speech is too much.
  9. Crimz my g, I think it's time to accept that the management/devs do not want to deal with Altis Life any more. They gave up on the server a long time ago.
  10. The moment FiveM launched, it killed Altis.
  11. Absolutely agree with this, but I think it everyone likes seeing a server peaking at 30 people, rather than 5 per day. Vulcan definitely helped with that. We left man. Two of us got banned for some days and got pissed off because us and another rival gang (you already know which one I mean) kept the server alive. When you don't appreciate your player base, there is no reason for you to have one.
  12. Yeah tbf locking threads isn't the most friendly thing to do. Y'all were sayin?
  13. (1.2) Random Deathmatch (also known as RDM) - Shooting at someone without engaging in any form of quality role play is considered RDM. (eg. Giving enough time for them to comply with your order. Count downs are not considered quality roleplay, please at least attempt to create an interesting roleplay story before considering shooting.) Go over the rules will ya, cuz this aint allowed :
  14. No counter initiation either, straight up shot. What can you say, volatile gonna be volatile
