    To start off this thread I'ld like to speak for the people who banned for the same reason as me or lesser. If you do not agree with my opinions in the following text saying/thinking it's biased, a second appeal or exaggerated because i'm banned, it's your opinion not mine. So let's get into it.

    I strongly believe that every person on this planet deserves a second chance at whatever they do. Say you were trying out for an esports team or a soccer team, your first attempt/trial was rejected. So while the season is in progress you practice practice and practice, you consider what your mistakes were the first time and when the next season arrives you have fixed up your mistakes and you manage to make it into the team.

    I personally, was banned for raging and doing the wrong thing...instead of playing it off I started using hacks as an attempt to try and defeat a team. At the time I used these hacks to try defeat a team I had a streak of 40 losses. I have been banned for 3 months by now and have considered my mistakes and what I've done wrong which led me to my fate on this server.

    I do not intend on being unbanned soon or at all but if i still have a voice among this crowd, I will use it to express my opinions for other people to judge. The whole time I was writing this, all I wanted to do is make the bans on cubecraft less vicious and punishing for first time offenders. A permanent ban is too much for just a one time offence and people need a second chance at what they do. In my opinion, a 1 week ban for a first time offence, 1 month ban for a second and permanent for the third.

    I hope you agree on my opinions, this is all I have to say for now and thank you, for reading.

    Overhauling the ban system to give second chances is something I would like to work on and implement. Can't comment on whether it will happen or when it will if it does, but do know there are members of staff working on it :)

    I would say a 1 month ban for the first time someone gets banned. The reason why is that I think 1 week is not enough. It's long, but people really need to get the feeling that what they've done was bad. And I think 1 week is not very much. Although I do agree that 999 months for Anti-Knockback once is a bit too much...

    1 month is enough for the first time, but if the person is misusing the second chance they got in any way, they should be permanently banned.

    Agreed. Give them not a second chance. Then maybe everyone start hacking because they already have a 'second chance'. Hackers make the game for everyone not fun to play and decreases the others stats. Just don't start hacking because everyone knows it, someday you will get banned. Don't be stupid to say you didn't hack or you want an unban. It is your choice.

    It would be hard before banning someone, you have to go check if they have been banned before etc..
    Also, why would they be given a second chance? You know hacking is wrong!

    A second chance is something everyone deserves, I agree with that. The hacker probably knew that he was wrong. But maybe the ban of a month will teach him to put of his hacks forever. Or hack on a server where it is allowed. I agree to the fact that its stupid for the staff that they need to go look up who has been banned before and stuff. But maybe a program could be made for that (dont get mad at me for this, its just the idea). I think 50% of all banned people willl not hack again. And the 2nd chance system was made up for those 50%.

    Hacking is at your own risk imo. If you get banned it's your faul. Just read the rules and respect them. The rules are very clear. So ignoring the rules needs to be a permanent ban imo.

    If the ban reason is because you where hacking , then youre punishment should stay . hacking is something you do on purpose , those hacks did not go in youre minecraft folders themself.but if you are banned for something that is not that big a deal then you should get a second chance in my opinion

    I also think that hacking is selfish and shows that you are inconsiderate of others as you are having fun by intentionally making sure others don't. Same with griefers.


    Unless, of course, you're doing it on Mineplex. Then, it's okay :).
