I assume you are talking about the xPeke report? My apologies if you feel treated worse than the latter you mentioned, that was not my intention.
You have to realise that watching footage of almost 2 hours long is (how ridiculous it may sound) a pain to do. If you pinpoint the moments where the admin that'll handle the case should look at, it'll make the job a lot easier. After all, we should try to work together, right? Or at least try to work along so the process wouldn't have to take so long. Also, this is not the first time that people have been asked to pinpoint their proof, neither will it be the last time. This 'rule' does not only count for you, it counts for each and every individual that wants to report someone.
That said I don't quite get why you feel treated different than the others. I watched the demos and although xPeke broke the rules, nowhere was he warned or told not to do so (yeah, we know he knows the rules but it's standard procedure to warn regardless..). Either way, I decided to give him a warning for his behaviour because I did not find it justified to ban him, especially not seeing he wasn't the only one in-game that misbehaved. There were more than 10 people in-game and all were having fun despite the fact they were, one by one, breaking the rules.
If I would've had a harsh character by following the rules precisely on the dot, I could've ended up banning at least 7 of them. But that's not the way it works. They were having fun, it was late at night. No one was bothered apart from you. Now, if you would've let it be without doing anything
back, the credibility of your proof would have been so high, you would have empowered your demos by doing nothing but just warning/telling them to stop - that alone would have been enough for me to strike the guy. You however didn't do/try anything to stop him from breaking the rules. Some moments, it even came over as if you were feeding him. Provoking him in a way any person would get pissed off and cross the line (still, I'm not saying he was right because he wasn't!)
How can you expect me to ban someone, that is regardless of breaking some rules late at night which he is by now clearly warned for, when you were participating in that whole thing just as bad as anyone else? I might sound harsh, and that is not my intention at all but you'll have to realise that I can't just sit on the rules and ban everyone that comes along if they don't play by them. That would be ridiculous not to mention it would end up in us having a server with no more than a handful of people that all play by the rules which is least to say, quite boring and far from what we as a community aim for.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping/looking for, but I can't make it any nicer than this, I'm sorry.
