[Imsxz] Matt_mdm - Banned by Admin Imsx

Title/subject: Banned by Admin Imsx

ie: ban evasion missunderstanding and killing I guess?

Post Content: I was banned for killing someone who looked like a cultist and calling me a racial slur.
Byond account and character name: Matt_mdm and Harris Verdun
Banning admin: Imsx
Ban type: Permanent
Ban reason and length: Killing "random" people while in a mech.
Time ban was placed (including time zone): Around 9 AM CDT, I was forced to log off.
Server you were playing when banned (Sybil or Bagil): Sybil
Your side of the story: I was just doing my job as a HoS during a Cult event, I found an abandoned mech and thought it'd be good to defend myself in it. I chased around one person thinking they were a cult member. I would have detained them if they didn't call me a Nigger on multiple accounts. They also looked like some kind of spirit or something, all pitch black and shadowy so I thought they were some cult thing. I've been here for less than a year and would speak to an admin directly about the matter.
Why you think you should be unbanned: I just want to do my job as HoS again, I'll gladly serve a week ban or something but permanent seems like a bit much. I logged off because I can only play this game for a certain amount of time at once, then I have to wait a few hours or until the next day to play again.

Actual ban reason:
Code: Select all
Banned from the server permanently - While no admins were online, seemingly went around killing people as the head of security for no immediately visible reason. Didn't respond to ahelps, and was logged off by the next round. Feel free to appeal if you have an excellent excuse for killing people with no prior combat logs regarding them.

Hi! The ban would have been much less severe if we were both online a the same time to discuss this, it was permanent because all I had to go off is that it was a "grief and log off scenario" according to the ahelps about you.

As a security officer, you're expected to stun and search before killing people if you're not sure they're an antagonist or not. Your logs showed primarily buckshot being fired along with drilling a guy with your mecha because he looked spooky.

If you can see the error of your actions, I'll be willing to reduce the server ban to one day instead of permanent, but I'd be applying a command/security ban for a week because those roles are reserved for more experienced players. You generally really don't want to play important roles like head of security or captain before you watch and learn how to act proper as an officer and know how to really identify cultists. Is that alright?

That seems fair, I do understand how my actions would have broken the rules now. Guess I was too paranoid as well to search or stun anyone. I'll take the sec ban for a week or even more but would love to keep playing on /TG/Station.
