I haven't appealed my infinite block ever, so I've made alts to edit pages. All the time. Most of them were 'legitimately' editing pages but not vandalizing or some shit.
I'm going to get right in to all of this.
Contents[show] A (mostly) unbiased point of view of why I got blocked in the first place
I did one of the worst things you could possibly do, and released 'someone's address. Did they do anything to me? No. Did I even hate them? No. But, I went along anyway.
I made a video on 'how' to get an address from JPEG metadata, which is more like how I got this person's address. In the video I used some ToU words and didn't even act like this was bad at all. I even went into Google Maps and showed their location. I am very sure they felt extremely uncomfortable, angry, and unsafe. I mean, what if someone leaked MY address? Anyway.
This was just on my YT channel. I didn't post it to LMR at all, but someone else did. Suddenly, it got a ton of views and I got an instant one-year block from Supereggy5 (I think that's his username, I really don't remember), which, keep in mind, I did something similar to this with them in a GoFundMe that basically had a shitty photoshopped image of his profile with a stock photo of a guy holding a middle finger. The GoFundMe was named "Kill Supereggy", but that's something else for another time.
Anyway, afterwards, my brother created an account but it got instantly blocked because it was thought that it was my account.
Then, I got an infinite block. This happened on March 9th - March 11th of this year, I think.
Why in the ASS would I ever do this?
Again, I was the same person making, basically just a death threat. An inside joke, yes, but it was still a death threat.
And this was the last straw.
To be completely honest, I have no idea what I was thinking to that day. I had plenty of time to edit the video and showed one of my friends me editing it (oh jesus christ what the fuck was I thinking), so there was enough time to prevent this and a lot of other things. Nevertheless, I posted it on to YT.
I really don't know. If I would've had the chance to block MYSELF, I know I fuckin' would!
But I was really cancer back in the day. I mean, even look at my Mii. Just screams cancer. An immature child that frankly could be the biggest idiot you've ever seen. I was smart, but not in the way I would be today.
Fuck you, past Arian. Really. I mean, I was really getting into Filthy Frank. I had Filthy Frank videos scattered across my desktop-- my Macf** desktop, of course.
I was so into Filthy Frank that I started quoting it.. in school. Yes, school. I used kys a lot, which got me into a lot of trouble.
I don't use kys today. I find it as disgusting (and hilarious and original) as the rest of you do.
Why should I be unblocked? How have I changed?
Again, you can also tell how I've changed by my Mii.
thincc But, here's also the many other ways I've changed.
For one, I've become smarter, of course. A lot of people have mistaken me for being a lot older than I really am, ask Banama Club (yes, that cancer, which I will explain)
I've hit 'that point' where I'm out of this huge phase that I was in, saying stuff like kys.
I've grew more mature, and you could tell that by how I write now as opposed to how I really wrote in the past. I wrote childish, and now I'm writing a little more maturely.
I'm certainly a lot smarter and have quite some common sense, and let me explain: (inb4 "arian? common sense? lollololololol")
PF2M has actually played a huge role in my life. I have someone to talk to, who I can learn how to speak better from, and someone that has great ideas.
It was his idea to packet sniff Miiverse, for example. And then, I made accessing console Miiverse via PC a reality. He had a lot of ideas that I made come to life, and this is with me as well. I can gladly say that he changed my life in a huge way and made me a better person. I mean, look at my edits on LMR in early 2016. Now look at me now.
I also really know better than to leak someone's fucking address in a video that threatens them at the same time, and to threaten a MODERATOR. I know better than to tell just anyone 'kys'. I know better than to do anything like what I just did, and I definetely learned from not only my block, but also the stuff I've pulled in school.. just, no.
Again, look at me a year ago or in early 2016, and look at me now. Want proof? Ask some people.
Of course, I have my flaws, but not as major as this.
I don't believe you.
Okay, ask PF2M. Ask people I've spent time with. PF2M is a good assessment as he's seen a lot of things I've done, and he knows how I act in exact ways. Sure, he'll tell you my flaws, but not anything like that psychopathic shit I pulled back then. He (barely) knew me back then, but he did and he might even know how I acted at that time.
What will unblocking you do for, well, yourself?
Oh man, there are a lot of things.
First, I will be available on LMR again, yay. This means people can actually contact me through there.
:oooooooo no shit sherlock
While I'm very sure at least most of us can agree that LMR's community features are nearly dead, the informational aspect of LMR is really a reason to stay on there.
Yeah, the forums are dead, I still have a nice and kind of updated page.
Kind of. That's because I have to either rely on other people, or other people will have to use their knowledge of what happened instead of my firsthand knowledge to update my page. For example, PF2M didn't do all the Miiverse hax, and my page is inaccurate in spots.
Also, updating PF2M's page itself would be neat. They're both protected, and I can't just make new accounts to edit them every single time, especially since they're protected.
Again, firsthand knowledge of this.
What will it do for me or the rest of LMR?
Ah, this is one of the biggest reasons.
Again again again, firsthand knowledge. I'm very informed about Miiverse and therefore have a lot of 'insider' information on it. Also, since I have access to more things, I could provide screenshots! A lot know that I can provide high quality and accurate screenshots, take my Mii for example, or the hyperban error messages, or my Miiverse screenshots.
LMR is missing (most of) my knowledge, really, and my abilities. The Miiverse API page is super wrong about literally everything, but I can't fix it. I'd love to make a Miiverse versions page as well to compare console and mobile Miiverse while also giving great screenshots.
I can replace screenshots on pages with great ones too, since this is from Miiverse users, and that's another thing: they only have their knowledge to work with. Take the Miiverse Glitches page, for example. At the bottom, nobody seems to know that the Miiverse strange interface glitch is due to CSS being missing, and Wii U Miiverse/3DS Miiverse's navigation mechanism.
The point of all of this is that I have a lot of knowledge and can certainly improve pages/screenshots/whatnot. I could benefit LMR a lot. I can't just be missing (well, I am, lol), since, well, all of this.
I think that's enough to drive the point that LMR could benefit if I had access once again.
I forgot what else I was going to mention.
I'm sure I left a lot of stuff out and I forgot some stuff to mention, so feel completely free to critize things, tell me about a mistake I made, give me more questions, tell me some things, whatever.
That's pretty much it. I don't feel like writing a conclusion, but you may have already got the point by now.
Also, the section above this.
That's it for this appeal (so far), see you when I'm still not unblocked because everyone can find some ammo.
I DON'T BELIEVE YOU IDIOT YOU'RE NOT GETTING UNBLOCKED EVER EVER EVER *proceeds to post meme in comments*
K, I'll keep making alts to edit every page I'd like.
In all seriousness, I'd just like another chance at this. If no mod is giving me one for their own reasons or nobody considers me a person anymore, OK, but good luck obliviously blocking everything. You'll live with the knowledge that I'm still on LMR, then.
