Second High Pardon Request
Greetings Sythe! It's been quite a long time since I initially requested a "High Pardon", I would dig-up the original thread, but I seems I have to be registered to search the dispute forum archive. I'll start off by telling you a bit about myself. My name is Mark, I'm currently 17 years old, I had just turned 15 when I was banned on Sythe. I've grown a lot in maturity since the original date of my offense, and I would love to jump back into this great community, once more, and figured that since the two-year anniversary of my offense was approaching that I ought to try, one last time.
Moving on to what I did, and why I believe I deserve a second chance. I was banned, roughly two years ago (August or September 2010), for self-vouching on my account. I have solemnly regretted my decision for almost two years now. I have wanted desperately to get back into the community, this was my favorite forum! I was initially denied, and now I'm trying once again, two-years later, to recover my old account. I wish I could go back in time and stop myself from self-vouching.. it was a terrible idea, I already had a few legitimate vouches, I was just fairly new to exchanging services on the forum and wanted to get a boost of reputation so that people would be more inclined to try my services. I never scammed a soul, and while I was active on sythe I actually spent A LOT of time in the personal help section and used to contribute a lot to the community. I even donated $25 back when Spiyke handled the donations, but I was banned before I could ever receive that fancy Halloween mask donation rank. Bottom line is, I cannot change what I've done. But I'm in a completely different place than I was back then, I'll be a legal adult in a view months, I still love video games and this community, and I would absolutely love to delve back into the awesome online forum I once loved so dearly.
I'm not asking you all to forget what I've done. It's just been almost two years and I'm ready to try once again, to be a proud member of this community, one who is legitimate and honest in my trade. I was initially given my permanent ban for self-vouching by Spiyke before he himself was banned, I do believe, but after lurking I noticed a thread about the self-vouching rule amended, and hoped that maybe after two years Sythe would finally forgive me for self-vouching and I could move on, in a more positive direction on the site.
Thank you for your time, and consideration.
