1. Please DO NOT post in a ban contest thread unless you are:
    1. The person banned or posting a ban request.
    2. Staff.
    This is necessary to keep threads on-topic and uncluttered. Thank you.

    If you don't know why you were banned, you probably broke one of our server rules. Most bans are temporary except in the case of gross violations or repeated infractions.

  1. In-Game name: SmokingHotWood [SPG] (Will change to a VF4 tag if I get unbanned)
    Time of Ban: I do not know
    Date of Ban: November 11, 2012 (11/11/12)
    Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:57629006
    Reason for Ban: Evading ban rules set in place by admins.
    Additional Comments: Thank you for this opportunity to have a chance to get unbanned from my permanent ban. I know you guys replied to my thread about my question about my ban and I have good news for you all at VF4, fortunately. I won't be around VERY MUCH AT ALL anymore like I was on your servers everyday and having fun. But, I WILL NOT be playing on your servers except maybe around holidays, and even so, I got work to do. I've recently been working my butt off, rarely having time to have fun. I've been studying diligently and reading, doing math and science and all sorts of other stuff. In the summer, I won't be on for a period because of my summer trips to China during June-July months mostly. Plus, I dont have any computer installed with TF2 in my home currently. The reason I've been working so much recently is because I gotta earn money and be able to support myself mainly, which requires me to focus on work and studying, because without hard work everyday, I wouldn't be able to keep my job, which is working as an actuary! Plus, I'm more mature now anyways, after securing a job, finally, after my Dad and other helpful people helped me find and secure a job working as an actuary. Before, I was slacking off and not really doing anything good for my job. Now, after my Dad helped me realize the hard work and diligence and determination required to have a job, instead of having fun and playing games, has set my eyes on focusing on my work.

    Thank You!

    Given that your ban was instated AFTER the change to VF4, your ban will NOT be reversed. The rules apply only to those people who have bans in the system which were imported from FFN's sourcebans setup.

  3. WHAT?! That's crazy! You didn't state that in the Ban Contest guidelines!!! WTF?!
    You can't do anyone who got bans instated after VF4 switch?
    How come, man?
    Why don't you guys offer a unban on request for people who got their ban after the FFN to VF4 switch??
    That's like kinda not giving the bans after VF4 switch guys/gals a chance!

    The announcement for unban consideration states quite clearly that such an action was for members who were banned under FFN Staff, and are now being given a second chance with the switch to VaultF4 Staff. Your offenses in our servers were committed AFTER the switch, therefore you are not included in the second chance announcement. I'm sorry if you misread the announcement, however your ban shall remain in place.

    Ban contests are available to ANYONE. The option for a permanent ban overturn which is posted about only applies to people banned under FFN, as mentioned by LavaRed.

    You've previously submitted 4 ban contests (2 via sourcebans, 2 in the forums). All 4 have been denied, and so it should come as no surprise that this one is denied as well. You've had your chance(s), and blew them. (Probably more chances than some of the folks that were banned from FFN).

    Given that you do not seem to get the hint (and also like videos to prove points in ban contests), perhaps this will help:

    Ya right, what chances?
    Man you guys just can't state clearly anything. I got banned with no prior friggin notice at all!!!
    You people just can't state ANYTHING AT ALL more specific than a freaking "Ignoring Admins" or "You have evaded the ban rules set up by the admins. Therefore you are not welcome at VF4 anymore." That is freaking piece of garbage! You didn't SPECIFICALLY STATE what I did wrong, like "The admin said for you to stop mic spamming, but you continued so we have the right to issue a 4 hour ban you" or something like that. BUT, you guys with your damaged minds, simply decided to state Ignoring Admins. That's it, nothing specific! No description of WHAT I did that gave me the ban, like I described earlier, and what would be the improvement(s) I need to make. You guys should make bans more specific for reasons OTHER than hacking. You guys give people chance's not really even friggin chances, just some fuckin piece of BS on your SourceBans page that is WAY TOO GENERAL to be even called a reason!
    Therefore, I direct you to watch this:
