negative comments on ban
The issue has never been the ban. Please reread my responses.

Yes we do.

Not to peanut but I can back Wonk up on this- my notes were updated after me helping a new player was noticed, even after there being years of black marks and splotches. Goon is the #1 community in SS13 that actively notices rewards and incentivizes kind and constructive play.
Also a reminder that all player notes are entirely private unless an admin discloses them to you specifically.
To the peanut gallery, someone already came in to clarify that positive notes happen, please read the thread. I still don't play nearly as often as I should if I want to build a reputation beyond the occasional visit.

My issue remains that the round in question was inaccurately judged. If anything I'd appreciate Horse Horsington's input, as they're the person I allegedly freaked out at.

I still find it very bizarre that I'm known better for my notes than for all the medical and security I play when I do play, or anything else for that matter. I've been probably the most efficient doctor or officer in every round I play as them. I'm one of the few people to regularly use department radios and to actually respond back. I like to goof off occasionally but a majority of my rounds are cooperative. Why is it that despite being here since cog2 release that nobody has bothered to add a positive note? Probably because I don't play as often, post on the forums frequently, or engage with people on the discord. I know I'm not popular but I'm not a malicious freak.

I want the record set straight: The round in question did not feature a freakout. Me and Horse were fooling around, and then later I tried to reference a YT video that had explicit sexual language. I fully accept the ban for sexual language but entirely refuse to recognize the attached note and increased ban duration as being legitimate, as they were both wrongly inferred from logs without context.
Hi, I'm one of the previous observers / note-writers whose note might or might not have contributed to the "again" portion of the offending "freaks out again".

I'd like to address reputation and general behavior. Usually, in order for something subjective to make it into a player note, it needs to be a behavior that is so repetitive and obvious that it stands out as something to take note of, to take the step to quantify and record what is, by nature, ephemeral.

The reason I chose, months ago, to make a note of your behavior, was that I noticed an incessant trend of making mountains out of molehills. Seemingly many rounds in a row, one errant death or a slight inconvenience turned into minutes (and dozens of them) of complaints, re-explanations, re-telling of the same situation to the same people until those people caved and offered some platitudes- and failing that, escalation of complaining and insulting until someone had to step in to end the conversation. The case that set me off was one where you actually broke a cardinal in-game rule, it probably warranted a day ban at the least- but I decided instead to add a note, for the benefit of the doubt.

To my disappointment, I wasn't the first to note such a thing. Nor the last.
Unfortunately, I think this situation might be familiar, because what was a simple (and in my purely subjective opinion, justified) ban into a long and tedious back and forth of what is and is not justified.

The notes system exists purely for our benefit, so that the 40+ admins don't need to consult one another to determine whether errant behavior is spontaneous or systematic. We use them as we see fit, and consult them as we see fit. They're purely internal, as people mentioned. You can request a copy at any moment, of course.
This is one of many cases where a ban is escalated because of a previous "suspended" ban, a note specifying the need to redress further behavior.

I really don't think you're going to get a retraction, because it's not warranted- and frankly the insistence on discrediting notes and logs is probably reason enough.
