Your Username: VVinterborne Punishment you have been given: One week ban for stealing Did you break this rule?: Yes Your defense: ...But the circumstances around this 'theft' was not malicious. This terracotta shop in the mall had a sign that said "open" and an unprotected chest that said "heres your stuff". I assumed that meant that you could "buy" from the shop in some way, I.E. bartering. The terracotta i took is still at home and i could have returned it and even paid money for the troubles I caused. I was not pmed about this situation, nor was I warned, and while I will take a punishment for my ignorance because I do understand I broke a rule regardless and I must have some sort of punishment (and ignorance is no excuse), one week is SO HARSH for a first offense, I've been in this server for two months and have never had any issue or caused one. I just want a lighter punishment because I feel a one week ban for a first offence that was really just me not understanding that a shop was, in fact, not open-- is far too severe. Thank you for understanding Any extra comments or supporting evidence: I am more than willing to return the goods I took and do everything I can to make this right, whatever that may be, as long as I get to get back in the server soon to do so.
