Full In-Game Name: sstari (ign changed to sstari4president) Ban Reason (As shown on the ban screen): Advertising other servers is not allowed, even over discord. Person Who Banned You: ABashfulBear Length of Ban: 1 Month Appeal: Hi, I am not appealing this ban I am simply asking for it to be reduced to the standard ban time for long time player advertisement. I know that I've been playing for just over two years as of now, but that shouldn't really make me different from anyone else who has been banned because everyone makes mistakes. It shouldn't matter how long I've played or how familiar with the rules I am. About the way I "advertised" it - I mentioned the IP in my own discord server of seven people, saying I was going to be building something on there related to the organisation I run (Mushroom Warp Spleef). I thought, "I've mentioned an IP before, mentioning another one shouldn't be much of a problem and I trust these people to not share the IP even further". This was the only place I shared the IP by the way. The staff team seem like I had intended to move players to this other server, although I had said that whatever I was doing on that server didn't need anyone else's input there. Also just because I mentioned a server IP doesn't mean I support the server. It's just another server I happened to be actively playing on at the time. Before this incident I haven’t had very many warnings, so I was never really given any chances before this. I'd also like to say I wasn't aware that Safe Survival could dictate what I could do outside of the main discord server and also what I could do in my own discord server. People would make the argument that I am a long time player and I should know the rules, but what goes on in my discord server is no business of the Safe Survival staff. I have been told by Schaum that I have had many past bans and warns, and should know the rules, but the truth is, I have only been banned once, and I've only received 4 warns this year, 3 that are actually justified. My past actions should not determine the way I currently act. I do see why I have been banned for advertising, but what I don't understand is the length of the ban. To begin with, I've seen long time players who had advertised banned for a significantly shorter amount. This time amount being 14 days. Everyone should be treated equally when it comes to long time players being banned. I admit I did advertise, but I should not be banned longer than any other player who had done the same thing. This was an honest mistake. You can clearly tell it is a mistake of mine because I am quite familiar with the rules. Hopefully I will be able to have my ban shortened by either 1 or 2 weeks. Thanks for reading.
