Please Note: The TotalFreedom Forum has now been put into a read-only mode. Total Freedom has now closed down and will not be returning in any way, shape or form. It has been a pleasure to lead this community and I wish you all the best for your futures.

    As the gravity of the fact the server's dead sets in, I've taken some time to reflect on the significance of this community.

    This server's been a major component of my life for nearly half of my existence - I joined in 2014 and managed to stick around for nearly a decade and now its gone. That sucks. I feel like throughout my existence here I cycled through every type of player: I went from being a shitty troll who used to crash the server with worldedit (and ultimately get permbanned for it) to becoming the Ban Manager, with file access and everything. This server is one reason I learned things I use in real life to advance my academic ambitions and future goals such as investigative work (such as dealing with raiders) and some computer stuff as well. At least I also made some good friends over the years which made this place more memorable such as videogamesm12 and DL108 who both got to go on epic adventures with me and do fun shit. I also now have epic memories of crazy stuff I did on TF such as crashing the Akefu Raiders and generating heatmaps of player locations. It sucks that TF is going to cease to exist and I guess I'll now be moving on to greener pastures.

    That's it and that's all. If there's anything else I feel I need to add, I'll edit this thread.

    If there is no chance that the server will be turning back on the least you guys could do is send me the files responsible for the corresponding worlds or the one's responsible for the server or possibly a couple download options so that I can play on my own time thank you guys it's been real I appreciate you guys

    Eventually, once the world files are determined to be not compromised by the attack, they'll be uploaded to the World Downloader Tool for people to download. You just need to wait and it'll probably be announced when that time comes.

    In light of recent events, the following users have been indefinitely banned from all TotalFreedom platforms for an indefinite duration, without appeal for participating in essentially a DDoS against the forums by using a bot to abuse the reactions system, causing the forums to go offline, violating the server rules in the process, and causing it to be locked down for several hours as a result. Ginlang and maniaplay had existing bans already for prior offences, but this ban, as it is Network-Wide and unappealable, takes priority.

    These users are now banned:

    • Ginlang (36562c76-e61b-4461-8e53-0dbaf7025f1b)
    • __veast (97f20616-9c7c-461f-a91e-c3ec6a6343f9)
    • maniaplay (f5ed01cd-3651-48af-99fc-d21a034583c7)

    I Object. Your general conduct recently has been quite shitty and you don't deserve to come back as a consequence. The bypassing incident and your behaviour during and after it reinforced the fact you are very unapologetic and insincere along with your conduct during the shutdown. You should wait out the ban and let it expire on its own.

    Still wondering why your ban mysteriously vanished from the indefinite bans file on the freedom server. Hopefully it wasn't any higher-up exec trying to get you to join the server so they can deny your appeal on purpose, right?

    If you're trying to accuse me of deliberately fucking up his ban to get him denied which is what I'm getting from this, that's really really pathetic because I wasn't even awake at the time of the incident and was made aware after the fact.

    After decyj145/ambyj145's increasingly poor conduct, blatant harassment and name-calling in response to their ban, the user(s) in question will be receiving a 6 month Network-Wide Long-Term ban which will take effect immediately and expire 6 months after existing sanctions expire. Ambyj145's Self-Request will take effect after this ban expires. The purpose of this ban is to reinforce the fact TotalFreedom is not a place for mental health support and the poor conduct demonstrated by the user(s) is further reinforcing the fact they need an extended break from this server for the betterment of their health.

    This post contains the instructions, guidelines and the template you must follow if you wish to appeal a Long-Term Ban. If you are not banned from the TotalFreedom Forum, you are required to post your ban appeal in the ban appeal section of the forum. You can access the Ban Appeals section of the form here. Before appealing your ban, it is important to make sure you meet all conditions of your ban (which are generally posted on the list of indefinitely banned players spreadsheet).

    E-Mail Appeal Instructions (if you are forum banned)

    If you are banned from the Total Freedom Forum, send your ban appeal by email to using the template provided at the bottom of this post.

    Self-Requested Ban Appeal Instructions

    As per the Self-Requested Long-Term Ban policy, there is no required template for these types of bans and they can be appealed at any time by simply contacting the Ban Manager and requesting for your Self-Requested ban to be removed.

    General Long-Term Ban Appeal Instructions

    When appealing your ban, it is recommended to verify that you have met all conditions of your ban such as a minimum duration of the ban before you are eligible to appeal, if applicable. In those conditions, if you appeal before your minimum time has elapsed or fail to meet the conditions of the ban determined by the Ban Manager when the request for your ban was approved before appealing, your appeal will automatically be denied. If you do not have a minimum duration of the ban applied, it is recommended to wait at least a minimum of 30 to 60 days before submitting an appeal unless you feel you have been banned wrongly and have concrete evidence to support this fact. If you do not wait the minimum time, you risk having your appeal being denied for it being too short of a duration you are banned.


    • Make sure you are actually banned before filing a long-term ban appeal. If you try to connect to the server and it states you're indefinitely banned, then file a long-term ban appeal. Otherwise, file a regular ban appeal in the forum or wait up to a day as regular bans generally last 24 hours. For admins who find themselves indefinitely banned for no cause (and still have admin perms on the forum), please post your appeals in the admin section of the forum.
    • If you're banned from the TotalFreedom Forums and you are found to be bypassing the ban using a VPN or any other means and you appeal your ban anyways, it will be considered invalid and automatically denied as you bypassed your original ban instead of normally appealing through the email address listed above.
    • In the event the long-term ban list gets corrupted for whatever reason or you find yourself unbanned without your appeal being processed and you decide to join the server, do not continue to play on the server and check the status of your appeal. If your appeal wasn't approved and you continue to play, you will be treated as a ban bypasser and your appeal will be denied and you will have to re-appeal your ban. To avoid this, either contact the ban manager or have someone else do so and report the incident.
    • Using any form of AI/ChatGPT to answer any part of your appeal, especially Question 4 will result in an automatic denial. That simply proves you are not sincere and ready to be unbanned.
    • If you are found to have undesirable conduct/name-calling/rudeness while you are appealing your ban, your appeal will likely be prematurely processed and rejected as you are demonstrating to the Ban Manager and other members of the community that you are not ready to return and have not learned your lesson.
    • If you bypass a Self-Requested ban, your offence will be treated as a normal ban bypass and you will be required to appeal via the template below and meet all the eligibility requirements while also risking being issued a normal long-term ban for your offence.
    • The Ban Manager holds the final decision on the status of your appeal regardless of votes.

    The template to be used when appealing a Long-Term Ban from the TotalFreedom server is located below. If approved for removal from the long-term ban list, the following conditions will apply:

    1. Except for those who were improperly placed on the indefinite ban list, those who get released from an indefinite ban are subject to being placed back on the indefinite ban list more easily than those who were never on the indefinite ban list.
    2. If your ban appeal is approved and you were also banned from the forum, you will be permitted access to the forum.
    3. If you were also banned from discord as part of the conditions of the ban, you are required to state this fact on Question 5 and if your ban appeal is approved, your discord ban will be removed alongside your in-game ban.
    4. If you were an admin, you can apply for reinstatement 30 days after release from the indefinite ban (or earlier if the Admin Officer approves) and you must note the circumstances of your indefinite ban in the reinstatement request.

    Long-Term Ban Appeal Voting Guidelines

    As part of the restructuring of the Long-Term Ban Appeal process, there are new changes to the voting procedure.

    Vouch/Object is not entirely forbidden but, people are going to have to actually provide some form of actual reasoning to their votes from now on which reflects a general change in voting procedures on the server. Votes will also no longer be the sole defining factor in getting someone unbanned as they are simply "suggestions" for convincing the Ban Manager to unban the player appealing the ban. Below are some tips for voting.

    • Votes with just "vouch/object" and no reasoning will be disregarded entirely.
    • Votes with "vouch he's cool", "vouch I guess", etc. will be disregarded entirely.
    • Votes found to be written with AI/ChatGPT will be disregarded entirely.
    • If objecting, it's often beneficial to include evidence of additional wrongdoings (if possible, but not required) or otherwise explain why they don't deserve to be unbanned (such as attitude, etc.)
