You wanna know a good way of not getting banned,
dont cheat???? If you were afraid of getting judged and all this other shit, you should've just played legit, regardless of your reasoning you knew what you were doing whenever you downloaded said cheat, so whether you feel bad about it now or not doesnt matter, because you've already used cheats; regardless if you've been banned man just be honest with us, trust me it makes it a lot less complicated for us and without the merry go round of bullshit we can get things done and have stuff dealt with a lot quicker.
We basically already know the moment you get banned because sourcebans tells us everything.
If you were banned for cheating should just be like "Damn I did cheat and I was using so and so and Im sorry"
Just telling us outright without trying to hide anything is the best possible solution. Also usually just being truthful from the start, def helps your chances.
Just because you were cheating doesnt always mean you dont have a chance to be welcomed back to our servers, you just have to be honest man. it goes a long way
Before I do anything I'd like more community input.
