Yesterday evening, I was playing on Webbcraft with my factionmates when I made a bad decision. I wanted to be cool. I wanted convenience. I wanted an elytra. The cheapest one I could find was $800+tax, and even though I knew I could get it in a few days if I just voted, I was selfish and decided to cheat to get them. Impulsively, I downloaded an xray texture pack and started to mine for gold. Gold ore sold for $4 in /warp shop, so I knew that a few stacks would be enough to get an elytra and some fireworks. So when everyone else in my faction was busy or offline, I would go deep into the mines underground and mine gold ore. After a while, I had enough, so I sold it, and bought an elytra. This is all I bought with the money, having only about $17 afterward, which I gave to my friend who was also thinking of buying an elytra. I did not tell anyone what I was doing, in fear of being snitched on, or copied. What I did was wrong. I thought that because I was selling to the server, I wasn't really "cheating" anybody out of their money, or scamming them, because I paid the ~$800 for the elytra, and it didn't cost any real money. But after I bought it, I felt no accomplishment. I knew that other people saved up, or were in the process of saving up their money to buy an elytra legitimately, and through all the guilt, I logged off shortly after making the purchase. An inventory wipe, a stat wipe, whatever it takes to show that I have learned my lesson will do, I just want to say sorry personally to Tsar. You went out of your way to help me when I was out of my faction, and reclaim some of my possessions. You put away some of your time to help a new player on the server, only to have that same person betray your trust and the rules. I know I cannot be fully forgiven.
I was banned between the hours of 11:30pm (November 16, 2019) and 1:00pm (November 17, 2019) Pacific Standard Time.
I really am sorry about what I did that day. I don't know how to get across the idea of how much regret I feel for everyone who has been affected by my actions. I don't know how I can help, or if I can even help with this situation anymore. I know the damage I have caused will never fully be reversed, because any solution would either be insufficient or just unfair to those I manipulated or cheated on the 17th. But I vow that I can and will make up for it by being a better person in the future, if and when I am given the opportunity to do so.
My friends from school play on this server, and every day I have to hear them talk about their plans for builds, or bases, or just exploration on the server. I miss playing Minecraft with them, and if I am given a second chance, I promise to not mess up like this again.
Sorry for the late reply, I was unable to log into the forums for the past few days
