Ban Appeal

Post by frostwav » Fri Dec 28, 2012 4:35 pm

Okay, so before I was still considered legally blind and was not able to make an account due to the confirmation code thingy when you create an account on this website. After a while of getting bored of some of my games on Steam, I stopped playing them and got a new laptop from a visual rehabilitation center nearby. I also got surgery as well that corrected my vision ultimately to what an average person who can see perfectly.

Now - I am here to make my unban appeal 'cause after my surgery, I forgot all about trying to make an account.

Now - I did have someone hack my account however many years ago but this thing that says "Disconnect: You are listed on the KAC Global Ban List. See www.kigenac.com for more information."

I would like to find out why I am banned and if I can get this fixed since I had a hacker on my account during a LONG time and finally got it fixed?

Also, I do not know/remember how to find my Steam ID, so any help would be appreciated. I believe I did not make it to the time limit that I was supposed to on a ban appeal as I just now checked... but I was having serious issues with a hacker and visual problems that limited me from making an account here. Any questions are welome.

Please provide your Steam ID #
Without this information it is impossible to proceed.
Your Steam account, your responsibility... no excuses!


How to get your Steam ID:

in Counter-Strike Source (CSS)
go to Options/Keyboard/Advanced
Click the box to Enable Developer Console ~

return out of CSS menu system.

in game, while you are in a server.
type the ~ key, this will invoke the console.
type status and then your enter key.
you will see a list of all players in game.

find your player name in the list.
you will see you STEAM ID listed.

Or:

Locate your steam directory on your hard drive.
usually C:\Program Files\Steam or C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam
find steam.log file
open steam.log with notepad.

Look for lines such as:
CsComm ConnectionPool Nov-30-2007 00:43:19.632 [3136] Did not find an existing connection, attempting new connection 1,69.28.153.90:27030 for 0:0:1234567
The last few numbers is your steam id, ie: 0:0:1234567

depending on when you purchased Counter-Strike Source.
you may see a more or less numbers in your Steam ID,
but it's in this format.
STEAM_0:0:12345
STEAM_0:0:123456
STEAM_0:0:1234567
STEAM_0:0:12345678

Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:19507220

This happens on a few different games I own but I have no idea why.

And I might have misunderstood you but you said "Your Steam account... your responsobility." If someone hacks my account - how is it my responsibility when I do not have knowledge of what they do or how to get the account back (took me a while to figure it out, of course I got it back though.)

Any more information for proof and such - I can provide.

STEAM_0:0:19507220

Checking 'STEAM_0:0:19507220'...
Steam ID is on the banlist.

Invoked on 06/14/10 21:29
KAC: ConVar r_drawothermodels violation

A valid KAC ban is not overturned.

Okay, do you mind explaining what happened or why I can not get unbanned from such servers such as KAC? That does not make any sense when I did not have my Steam account at the time (like I said, it was hacked - just ask the Steam Support people).

The reply to your protest is not any indictment of you personally.
The Steam account in question was caught by KAC & legitimately banned for cheating.
KAC: ConVar r_drawothermodels violation is a valid ban.

Proof of Steam account possession is irrelevant.
Requesting that we contact Steam support is irrelevant.

The Steam account is banned on the global KAC ban list.
