Hello, I am appealing my ban on MilkyMC.

I was banned on 1/17/2021 for Rule 1D.
I understand my actions and I have some explaining to do.
Over my history on MilkyMC, I have been a jerk and I understand that. I was not intentionally being a jerk at all, more of trying to be "sarcastic" but I did not know I was being a jerk. Over the months of 2021, I believe that I've matured and understand my actions more than ever now.

I have quite a few reasons I would love to be unbanned.
1) MilkyMC was my only minecraft server I had ever gotten so far into survival in to. It was my first time fighting the wither, first time killing the ender dragon, etc. I have made so many memories on here and I want to make more with other people.
2) I had many acquaintances and friends on here that I had known and I would still love to play with them. Ever since I was banned, things have been quite dry when it came to socializing. I only knew people on MilkyMC and it was the perfect server for me. I loved everyone there to heart.
3) MilkyMC had an amazing owner and they would host some of the best events on there, including the community. I miss those events and just being able to have fun. Thank you for those events, staff team. :)

I owe not just the staff team but everyone an apology, I already tried to apologize to as many people as I could in DM's who played in milky way before I wrote this appeal. I am not apologizing just to get unbanned but I feel like I owe a genuine apology to everyone here.

I apologize for what I've done to you guys on Milky. I know my history is rough but I feel like the community on Milky can trust me again.

Thank you, everyone.

Its no news that you and I have had our differences in the past Kommon. I have gone over your appeal and feel you are coming from a genuine place, and I am willing to start fresh with you. I am hoping that I am not making a mistake, I however, do not make the final decision, but am voting to unban you. Hopefully, you have been able to get through to other members of staff and we can come to a decision. In saying this, I truly hope it is the last time we see you on this side of the forums. I've said my piece, its now in the hands of the others.

Good luck
Chunkk

After reading your appeal, I agree with chunkk, you appear to be coming from a genuine place and I too am willing to start fresh.

2 votes for unbanning is a great start, however, I would like more input from the rest of the staff team.

I can tell you really want to come back to Milky. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I believe you're actually sorry, or if you've learned anything. You've been banned/warned many times for various offenses. I believe, generally, that people deserve second chances... but you're on your 4th or 5th now. My vote is no.
If you do get enough votes, from the rest of staff, to be unbanned, I just hope you don't give us reason to regret it.
Good luck

I will vote for an unban, on the condition that your first and last punishment be permanent. As Cruel has said, the amount of chances you have had is laughable, but I like the appeal.

I know you as a jerk. Sure.
Somehow still I feel you belong here (being less of a jerk would make it a more pleasant experience though).
I have no specific reason for that but I can't deny it.
I am not in the position to make a strong statement as the others are but yeah, the thread is open so this is my opinion – a yes.

I think a proper apology and growth is simple and consists of a few steps:

You've already made a post asking for a space to be heard.

The second step is a sincere apology and letting others know that you hurt them, not some "I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings" bullshit, but actually taking accountability and looking at what you did and acknowledging where you went wrong. All I see is reasons why you want to play again but nothing about why you've been banned countless times before.

Third is to have a clear plan on how you want to right the situation. The apology is part of that and it leads into step 4.

Fourthly your apology should show how you won't let this won't happen again. If you don't know how to fix your behavior to stop something like this from happening then the apology is just an excuse. Without that we'll be here again...again

I think once those are addressed then your apology and appeal would be valid and then I'd be cool with the unban.

Hey 👋 I read thourghly thru your comment and I fully understand you. In your 4th statement, I saw that you think I didn't state that I don't want it to happen again and you are right. I tried to state that by saying about how I want the community of milky to trust me again but I was not clear about that in the statement.

I read thoroughly thru what you read and I want to respond to that.

For your 2nd and and 3rd step(s), I understood my actions and I believe that I 100% deserved all my bans thru out my history. I know some people don't like me and that's fine but I still want to change that. I know I use to be a jerk and I understand that and I take accountability for every single word I said, however I'm not a jerk anymore and I want that to be acknowledged. I want to let you know I wont let this happen again. I am going to take a few measures to not let any actions that could get me banned. For example, I will think before I speak. If I try to type something and think that it could get me banned and be hurtful to others, I won't say it. Or if I want to pull a "prank" on someone, I would think if they would be ok with the prank. ( I wouldn't pull a prank that could make someone lose their homes or all their items, something like a small prank, and I'd make sure I know them.)

For your 4th step, I want to prove to everyone that I mean my apology as sincerely as possible, not just some excuse to get unbanned. Like I stated in my appeal, "I owe not just the staff team but everyone an apology, I already tried to apologize to as many people as I could in DM's who played in milky way before I wrote this appeal. I am not apologizing just to get unbanned but I feel like I owe a genuine apology to everyone here." I mean it but I don't want to just apologize in an appeal or in chat at once, I already tried to reach out to as many people I knew on milky that I still had in my DM's to apologize sincerely. If I get unbanned and I am able to reach out to everyone on Milky that I knew, I was to DM them an apology. I am not just gonna copy and paste the apology, I want to write it different for each member.


Anyways, that is about all I got to say.

Thank you, Eibhy

Hey kommon, from my experiences with you in the past i recall a lot of trouble, especially in the gaming district. the problem wasn’t just not follow the server rules but also rules that people had at their games as well. there was a lot of trouble. however i do believe people can change and if what you are saying is serious and that you are changed and willing to stay well behaved and apologize to everyone then i am on board with willing to give you another chance.

I agree, I did cause trouble in the gaming district when it came to breaking game rules and building on someones plots (season 3)

This doesn't sit right with me. An apology, in part, is a commitment to repair damage you caused (if possible) and to make the changes needed to not repeat the actions that you are apologizing for. This line speaks of a desire for recognition. You want us to acknowledge that you aren't a jerk. That desire turns the apology into an act of performance, you want us to accept your apology so you feel better, wanting us to acknowledge that you are no longer a jerk is for your benefit.

An apology should come from the desire to provide service to those you hurt. To heal the damage you caused, regardless of any personal gain. It is an act of humility, in which you need to 'center' the people who were hurt, not yourself. In other words, you don't apologize to improve others opinions of you.

That being said, I do see that you are making some effort. So I think this can be a learning experience, which is the only reason I am still engaging.

In the end, actions speak louder than words. If the others vote to lift your ban, you'll get your chance to show us.

Hey Kommon,
You have caused some trouble, we can all agree on that. I can tell you really want to make a fresh start, I hope you genuinely want to change. I vote for an unban, I really hope I don't make a mistake on that. With that, I agree with yeli: you mess up one thing? Banned for good. I am really curious of how you will act if you are back, maybe we have only one way to find out if you are genuinely sorry: unban and see how you act on the server.

You'll have to make a clear plan and view of how you will act if you come back. If others vote for an unban, I hope you don't make us regret: stay out of the trouble.

I have had some disagreements with Kommon in the past, but I also made some great memories with him and I personally think he should be unbanned, but if he does get punished it should be perms to as some of the mods said. I hope you get unbanned Kommon
