    I'm glad to see that you are eager to start roleplaying again and that you ready to restart. Although, there's not much remorse to this apart from yeah, "Yeah I really shouldn't have said that... BUT...". I would really like to hear a truthful apology from having to deal with your malicious self during the climax of the uprising where admins had to take time away from the event in order to deal with your fit on the forums. I do not see much of an improvement just from this and I'd like to see you prove me wrong.

    god damn if you aren't one of the most annoying people in the world to argue with, but I think you've had plenty of time to think about your actions by now. as long as you're ready to stop being a knucklehead i dont see a problem with it

    i dished out the permaban on hl2 but idk who did the forums (or when, even), so i think i should atleast respond here


    now, i know caring about the opinions of strangers on the net is a great way to become a neurotic ball of stress, but look at it this way - if you're playing at tnb, you can't avoid interacting with the people that play there aswell. they're on the server as much as you may be, and they have as much of a right to be there as you might. rp is an effort that requires a minimum of two people - so even if you don't care about what people think about you, being courteous and respectful goes a long way with this sort of hobby. food for thought, i suppose.


    i'd almost argue otherwise. even if you don't mean it, you'd still put the effort into it that others haven't or wouldn't (look at horten copy-pasting his old appeal's text). you may not be able to tell whether an apology on the internet is really sincere, but you can definitely tell when it's insincere.


    with all that said, it's been a long time and i'm not expecting much but i don't see the point in keeping you banned any longer. if you go back to your old ways, you know where it'll end - but if you don't, and if you've really changed, i'll look forward to seeing you around.

    I've been forwarding these to Neuro. It looks like the call's been made, but he hasn't responded to me yet, so let's please leave this thread open in case he has something to say.

    I know this isn't your intention, but let's not conflate sincerity with effort. It's possible to be both contrite and concise. If you have some free time, you can scroll through the HL2 unban forums for both groveling and ass-kissing as well as straight, to-the-point apologies. It's easy to tell which ones are sincere.

    guy's a pretty decent roleplayer when he wants to, sometimes the memes and shitposting just take over him. he probably deserves a 2nd (maybe 3rd?) chance.

    i meme and shitpost with my friends a bit, it's a point brought up of hl2 admins getting away with mingery and shitposting while others cant and it's because of the timing of it and how malicious it is to others. mingery and shitposting is a-okay, just as long as you can control yourself on when to do it or not to because it'll infringe on others which is what ultimately led to his ban.

    heated gamer moments are not an excuse.

    there's a difference between late-night memery and outright disruption through meme'ing during roleplay
    neurotic kept doing the latter to the point of breaking people's immersion by screaming the n-word during uprising events and other shit, "guy's a pretty decent roleplayer" applies to many people who are banned permanently permanently from TnB

    I wanted to be the one who pulls the plug on neurotic because, I admit, he irritated me a lot with the lack of roleplaying on a roleplay server but I believe that this unban should be an actual thin ice unban. If you get unbanned and end up reverting to your behaviour, the next attempt at an unban should be when PHL2RP comes out, or even some time into it.
    Please relay at least this part to him.

    So to be clear, neuro, you're going to moderate your own behavior and not go overboard. I could elaborate on what constitutes 'going overboard' but I think you understand the kind of behavior that got you in trouble in the first place. Can you agree to that?

    I think you've had enough time to reflect on your actions at this point. Just remember that these sort of infractions pile up, and that the next one has a chance of being truly permanent.

    As long as you can cut the shit, there's no real reason not to let you back.

    He was banned for egregiously memeing and minging during IC situations. Everyone goofs off once in a while, we get it. But there's a point where it gets disruptive and even harmful to other people that we have to share this space with. I'm only asking that he doesn't go that far, but not minging and memeing around in the first place is a pretty safe strategy for staying out of trouble. Not everyone has a good sense for when they need to stop fucking around and get IC, so I can respect the descision to abstain from dicking around in the first place.
