    Banned from ArmA II Server - Unjust?

    Hi all!

    I got banned from arma 2 server today for using artillery gun glitch (D-30) against enemy in an actual AO...
    There was an admin online, he looked like a voted-gamer admin, not a regular one like IceRaiser used to be.
    He asked me, how can i use artillery guns, i explained him, then someone - that i suggest not him - banned me from server.
    Let's state some facts: I'm not a hacker, i'm not a cheater. I'm playing the game as it is, i have only sound and some retextured weapon mods but that's all. Arma II has many-many glitches, that i won't tell anybody, let's find them out or look after it on Google, there are many, believe me...
    As game glitches part of every game, it shouldn't be accused as cheating or hacking.
    I want to be unbanned, because of real good community and good server.
    There are many people can vouch me, like Tyrr, who knows i'm not a hacker, i probably got false reported by somebody after i did really mad game score by using artillery gun on AO.
    Try to rethink that... please.
    Regards.

    Just feel the need to point out that there are quite a few of us who have an admin password (and so who aren't bogstandard voted admins) but don't play on the server that often, so even if its not IceRaiser or someone else you know it might be a proper admin.
    RPS Arma 2 community server!

    The ingame voted admin's name was Richard Northen (maybe i spelled wrong, but it was like this).
    But as far as i know, voted admins can't ban, only who have adm. pass and shown as *Admin* in Serv. Control window.
    The thing maybe was some false accusing by that guy, and i think he just reported me here on forums or Steam then someone banned me by request.

    @Bodge: Will do, thanks in advance for looking after this case.

    Damnit Av3ng3r, stop haxxing! :D

    And give bodge your GUID(if you know how), or let one of us(admins) know on our Steamchat and we'll sort it out there.

    so.. what do you mean by "IceRaiser used to be"? :,(

    Right, I had a look at the logs.

    I have removed you from the banlist, you should be able to play again.

    THIS IS NOT ME CONDONING EXPLOITING BUGS.

    Please refrain from doing so again in the future.

    I meant that Richard guy had a single admin that only good for kick, and i meant you're a regular admin, not like him... sorry for my grammar faults, i have a pretty bad english. :D

    **

    So... thanks a lot Bodge, i mean it. I wont (ab)use those bugs again then. :)

    Upd.: Looks like i'm still banned, i can't connect in, server keeps autokicking me.

    Bodge: wait, what? :o
    Av3ng3r: sometimes it takes a while for the server to understand that it should recheck the log.. So just keep trying :)

    Bodge, I'll chat to you about this in a short while when I get back to my computer - but I was in steam chat when this occured, and I believe Harakka handed out the ban because Avenger has apparantly been using the glitch several times this week.

    He was banned in response to a complaint for the steam chat user "Ben" who came from the server to the ARPS chat to have a bit of a complain. Something to consider.

    Just to clarify.. i don't think that 2 or 3 times using that thing can be considered severe. Also this Ben or i don't know who it is guy maybe surprised about my score and/or because i rarely got killed in this situation. But most times i used the artillery drop, and with a decent view distance setting i shot out several infantry and armored units before they were have a chance to spot me, combining single binocular spotting and howitzer LoS aiming... Then i made almost 80 kills per AO.
    A guy named Daniel was with me almost all the times, he spotted me targets and asked how can i do this, i simply explained the same thing to him... simple as that, but if you like to, let's consider it again, i still don't think that counts cheating, especially not hacking.
    The bad thing is when there's no actual admin ingame, then -as the case itself shows- one guy takes a complaint about something on Steam chat, admins insta-ban the actual guy without any checking. Wonder how many of then would've been innocent? However, you can check the log, i think that says everything about this, i'm all for it.

    DW: I've allowed that "glitch" before so Av3ng3r's not at fault. Also Ben is a little b*tch :P
