Link to the source of punishment (report/post):
there is no such thing. i was banned for playing on a server (the german server, time was late wednesday evening 2015-02-11, i didn't record the time properly, but it should have been around 23:00 CET) and getting kicked for bad RP name and rejoining the server without changing my name.
if there is a thread or message for this, i'm afraid i don't know how to find it - and i have not seen it. it says here: http://www.dayzrp.com/t-ingame-names that bad name bans are temporary. when i asked in the helpdesk via teamspeak, i was told i would have to create a ban appeal,.
my name was "Jolly Swagman". it's now changed to "Duman Orujov"
Why the verdict is not fair:
i had no understanding of the context and no proper understanding of the kicked message in and of itself - nor did i receive any information about this my during or after creating my application. after understanding what actually happened - i changed my name in game straight away. of course, the verdict wasn't really unfair in any way at the time.
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view:
my application was accepted to the whitelist and i didn't receive any complaints about my name at the time. there was not enough information available to me (eg: "admin: change your name") - and i prioritized getting back in game to continue the role play with players in my vicinity. after the fact - i also changed my name.
i simply introduced myself to others under the name of "jolly". i believe no one checked my pulse, even though i cant be 100% sure of this as a fact, since i had quite a bit of interaction with others. how ever, i tried backing off as soon as anyone came too close, in accordance with the suspicious and careful nature of my character.
i now understand you need a proper name, nicknames are not acceptable, even if you've written your character around it. from now on, i'll always use a proper name.
i have learned my lesson and will always investigate any kicked messages properly before trying to rejoin a server again.
What would you like to achieve with this appeal:
getting unbanned so i can continue to play on the german server - or at least getting an estimate on how long the temp ban will last.
What could you have done better?:
several things. i made stupid mistakes. i didn't pay proper attention to the kicked message at the time and just assumed it was some random battle eye bug. i didn't even google it - which was terrible judgement on my part. i was too anxious to get back on the server as soon as possible to avoid ruining the experience for anyone in my proximity.
i could have picked a better name - even though the name i choose was very fitting for my character. i understand why it may have been perceived as bad, especially if you don't have knowledge of what a "swagman" actually is. reference for your convenience, if you're curious: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swagman
i hope i didn't post this in the wrong place or manner and that i've included all the relevant information. i'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for my stupidity. thank you.
