Well, today's the day. The past year and a half have been a wild ride, but I'm proud of the work I've done here. To all my staff friends, don't burn the place down while I'm gone. To all the community, thank you for offering me the chance and I hope I've done well by you all, even if we didn't always agree.
After a second review, the staff team has decided to alter your punishment.
We'd like to start by making it clear that the intended use of the notes mod is to further roleplay in meaningful ways, not to be used for character spam, memes, or otherwise pointless jokes. That being said, we acknowledge that the note you wrote was not the end-all-be-all of immersion breaking or BadRP, so a full 5 day 10 point sentence is a tad harsh. You're right that not everyone will be a dark and grim individual at all times, but we'd like to remind you that the appropriate way to express those moments of happiness or jest isn't through what effectively boils down to keyboard spam or memey phrases written in notes.
With that said,
Warning adjusted. 2 days served during the appeal process, 5 warning points.

I see no harm in adding a rule clarification or what @Jamie has suggested. What might be obvious to staff might not be to community members, so if there's confusion I don't think clearing it up is a bad thing.
