Hello, peeps! I'm back!

You might remember me as _TheRedX, but now I go by _TheRedex because of Microsoft account nonsense.
I was suspended around 2 years ago (there's a post on the old forums of this here), and I wanted to make a formal apology for my actions.

At the time, my mental state wasn't exactly at its highest, and so therefore I was vulnerable. I managed to get manipulated, essentially peer pressured into leaking admin chat, messing around with the staff members (on a serious matter I shall add) just because "haha funny", being an accomplice to the forum attacks, and eventually getting myself indefinitely suspended because of it. I want to say that I did not participate in the active attack against the forums (Denial of Service), but I was an accomplice and therefore got myself punished accordingly. I am terribly sorry to everyone that was hurt because of it, and I can't express it enough.

I've since regained mental stability and I'm significantly much more stable now, I run a few servers of my own and I'm working on a few projects that may just succeed, which I've been working on for a long time by now.

About the pedophile accusations: if you are not aware, I was accused of being a pedophile back on the original TF, because the same people who attacked the forums started practically sending pornography to minors on TotalFreedom. I wasn't aware of this as this was going on, I was never told about it by the offenders, and upon receiving information of such occurrences, I immediately cut contact with the offenders in question. I want to make it clear, that I am NOT a pedophile, and that I am deeply sorry for everyone that was harmed in the process. This shit is disgusting and I can't believe I actually was friends with these people at some point.

I've been on the server for a very long time now (original TF), and, of course, I'm also still here on TFR. I think I may have been here since... 2015 maybe? Possibly a bit later, maybe earlier, but either way, it's quite a bit.

While TF may be a bit of an odd community, it's one I admire. I've been on here for a while, and I'm glad to be back.

I have intentions of reapplying for Admin eventually, and I want to be back on the team, as I think I could be a good addition to the staff team. If my brain is not mistaken, some people told me back then that they genuinely miss me being on the staff team, and honestly, I'd be glad to be back there too.

Also, since then, I have an english name now - you can call me Red like usual, however, you can also call me Matthew or Matt, for short.

Anyways, happy to be back! Let me know your thoughts on this, I'm fully willing to answer any questions you may have.
~ Matt

as someone who was vocal about your involvement back in the day, i personally say welcome back.

i'm not gonna pretend as if we agree on everything, but you speak out and i value that.

Good luck with your reinstatement
 
Welcome back. You've been here for a while but your official welcome back post is nice. Good luck with reinstating for admin.
 
I won't object to your reinstatement. It's clear you were manipulated, and I've been a victim of that in the past. Though I don't know how to feel about you as of right now, I do forgive you and I'm glad you're in a better place.
 
Given no real concerns were raised throughout this week (and a bit), your suspension has been lifted.

You're free to post a reinstatement thread on the forum.
