    Appeal description:
    Essentially, I have to make a new appeal because I appealed on the wrong account and have waited a year to get that answer. :\
    Anyways I was tricked into impersonating Bottiger by a friend who was running some scam where he did "auctions," where he would take the victims items for an auction, then run away. I, not aware at the time, was on my alt because he asked to add me on it. Then, he just said "Hey, can you do me a favor and I might be able to get you an unusual?" so I, the desperate man, took up his offer. He just told me to change my name to Bottiger and chill in his server (I assume this is because my picture was already the penguin). Flashforward a week and he let me in on his scheme. He was using me as a pawn to trick people into falling for the auction scam, as a "trusted community admin" would be in the server to watch over. He then asked of me to go around servers spamming the IP for the "unusual auctions." I told him I wasn't up for scamming, then I changed my name to Generic. To be honest, I'd appreciate a speedy appeal process because I waited a year before I was told I made the appeal on the "wrong account."
    Also I will provide proof that I haven't scammed tomorrow, as I do not have time right now. If you wish to see the proof now, you can refer to the appeal made on Hugh Neutron, my "alt" account.​

    As I told you, archiving this one, and linked this one from the old appeal so you do not lose your place in the queue.
