    Which server were you banned on? Survival

    Why were you banned from this server? I was giving the address of a server I am leaving to show someone how I can build and assist. It was done in private messages, not in the public, and -not- to advertise.

    Why do you think you deserve another chance on the server? I am looking to move to this server and to play here. I even recently donated to show those feelings.

    To quote Sica, who quoted another staff:
    "As one of the other staff put it recently, why would you go into Burger King and yell "McDonalds!!" Advertising is mentioning another server in anyway, be it in PM or in public chat. This is pretty much a universal rule on any server you play because it lures valuable players away from the server which damages it. Can you please explain why you deserve to be let back on other than you would like to play with your friend? You have 24 hours to reply."

    Good afternoon,

    I appreciate your reply. As I stated, I was not trying to lure anyone away from any server. If this is considered the case, then I am the one getting lured away to here from where I play. As I stated, where I went to show him was a server and a town I spent over a year on that will soon be gone. I, honestly, have no friends here on this server. I am new, waited and played to get Trusted, and then once I began to feel comfortable even donated only moments before the incident. If I had any ill ideas against this server, then frankly, I wouldn't begin to upgrade my status here and donate.

    I do not play this to hop servers, annoy others, and so on. This is a relaxing game that I prefer to play with others, not in single-player. After trying out this server since registering last week, I felt this will be a good place to start. I am a fan of towny and building with it; which is what brought it here after reading reviews about servers.

    Again, there was no wanting to pull a member from AEM, especially in the messages before (if I was able to log it before a sudden kick), it would state to show that I wanted to display to someone I just met (this was not a friend of mine - I was attempting to meet others) the ability I have in building and managing towns, and to simply show him what I have done in the past and what I would prefer to do here. He, at the time, was helping me locate a shoreline to begin this as well, after congratulating me in my donations to the server.

    I am looking for a new "home" to build on. I would prefer to make AEM Survival that home.

    Thank you for your time,
    -Dennis ("MrStauf")

    I appreciate your well thought out reply. I will grant you access again to the survival server and make sure you're cleared. I have a lot going on in chat a lot of times and am in the process of helping many people at once. Console warned me of your posting an ip address in chat and I immediately banned you as per our rules. I understand your situation and don't feel it was malicious. We take this matter very seriously and it's always an instant ban so don't feel singled out. Take care and remember don't post any more ips of any servers unless it's for AEM. Have fun!
