John Smith Appeal (Complete)

Post by JohnMSmith » Tue Jul 30, 2019 3:48 am

Hello! I have an appeal on AStats, but unfortunately the process is going slow. My first appeal was created in 2016, after that AStats forum has been broken and I had to start a new appeal. Here it is - ... hp?tid=299 .

Discord: John Smith#4290

There were a great number of games with cheated achievements. For cheating two programs have been used - SAM and Artmoney.
Before 2013-2014 I was not the only one user of my account. We discovered for ourselves SAM and started to unlock achievements in every game we could. Back then I didn't know about AStats and similar services with stats and leaderboards for achievement hunters, so cheating achievements wasn't such a big deal to us because of absence of value of them. Later I relocked cheated achievements because it looked stupid - all achievements unlocked at the same time = obviously cheated. Sometimes I was using SAM and Artmoney to unlock achievements that were broken or tedious to get. In 2016 I discovered AStats and achievements finally started to have some value. The problem was I had been banned. So I started to looking for cheated achievements. I relocked as much as I could, but mods on AStats said that it wasnt enought - there was more find. It was problematic - as I have mentioned above I wasn't the only one user of my account for some time. Mods advised me to relock every achievements that I'm not sure of - I did it. I have relocked achiements, was mistaken a couple of times - relocked even those I achieved myself. I believe I have no cheated achiements left. Looking forward to be a full member of 100Pals and AStats.

Bioshock Infinite, Unreal Tournament 3, Alan Wake, Alan Wake American Nightmare, Alien Breed (1,2,3), Worms, Metro 2033, Metro Last Light, Saints Row 3, Saints Row 4, South park The Stick of Truth, Garry's Mod, Left 4 Dead (1,2), Portal, Surgeon Simulator, Team Fortress 2, Batman Arkham (Asylum, City, Origins, Origins Blackgate), Audiosurf, Circuits, Lucius, Magicka, Postal, Postal 2, Slender The Arrival, The Stanley Parable, Universe Sandbox, World of Goo, Bad Rats, Defy Gravity, F1 2013, Pixel Puzzles 2 Anime.

Hi John,

Everything looks all good to me. I'm gonna go ahead and verify you on Discord.

Unfortunately we can't unmark you on Astats, but hopefully they will get back to your thread soon, and feel free to reference this thread there - you are unmarked now on 100Pals/SH/MGS, so please update your profiles/games there.
