The way Mingo speaks about the situation makes it seem like he tested the scripts a lot for this friend.So as Mingos friend my opinion may fall under biased so take it into consideration or don't.
With regards to the scripting situation I don't believe that the ban should be revoked, only reduced, this is because in the 3 - 4 months since the initial incident Mingo has been nothing but an asset to the community, showing no signs of attempting to script on the server again(to my knowledge).
Additionally, over discord, I've seen more than enough evidence to convince me that Mingo made a genuine mistake when scripting back in May.
Because I believe the scripting to be a genuine mistake, I hope the staff team have a more human approach to the case, understanding that in the given context it was an easy mistake to make.
I don't believe for a second that he didn't know about this "streamer mode".
You also told me that it was a Counter-Strike Source script. Yet you later said that you decided to test it on GMOD. Some things you say dont add up.
Mingo, when admitting to me what you had done, you decided to mention how the server has "benefitted" from you since you hadn't been banned, referencing to you purchasing Jedi. Purchasing roles doesn't mean that rules dont apply to you, if anything, you have to follow even more rules.
