Link to the source of punishment (report/post): http://steamcommunity.com/id/wyrlyr/ - At the current time, my previous VAC ban was exactly 744 days ago on Rust.
Why the verdict is not fair: It's not unfair. I was younger than I am now, the game's community and overall structure brought out the worst in me and it's something I've sworn to never do again.
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: Back when Rust was just over a year old, I bought the game in hopes of finding a new addiction and wasn't greatly disappointed as time progressed. The more hours I got on the game (I have 159 in total before I was issued a VAC ban for hacking), the more I got sick of it because of the horrible community and lack of hope there was in finding a working server with good admins and a solid playerbase. When I decided I didn't like the game anymore with it's community, admins and everyone else included, I took out my anger and hacked until I was no longer allowed on the game. It's been over two years since I've even touched a program to hack and I have never done it since. While I am not new to DayZ, it's a game that I have never thought about harming, cheating or whatever you may call it. I'm new to this community entirely and want to explore what DayZRP has to offer that no other game or community has and, if possible, I want to have a place here despite my ugly past full of stupidity, anger and regret that occured two years ago.
What would you like to achieve with this appeal: I want to have a clean name. I've never interacted with this community, I have never hacked on this game, I have never hacked on any other game besides the one I'm obviously convicted of in the profile link I've provided above.
What could you have done better?: At this day and time, I wish I would of kept a clear head and not let my emotions and hateful desire take control of my actions. I shouldn't of hacked on Rust, I shouldn't of even bothered looking up any cheat engines for the game. For what it is worth, I'm sorry.
If I somehow mess this up, let me know. If I don't have a place in this community despite my best efforts to explain my side of the story about a stupid thing I did two years ago, then I understand.
