This topic is absurd.
That you first believe that because the report was made from a retired staff that it had some sort of influence on us at all- that is not true at all. We look at all reports the same. Either if the case is crystal clear we apply the proper rules. As for this case, it's a rule 20 and required my involvement, and I agreed with the decision.
You might say otherwise, but your intentions with this wall was pretty clear, claiming it that close to spawn, that large of a claim, and also building a wall to prevent exploration. Not to mention the no-entry tag. Sure, we do have random teleport signs but a lot of the times people want to explore with the base location of spawn and see what's around, since that's a landmark they are familiar with. instead of going to a completely random location.
Your wall prevented that.
Not to mention your complaints about inactive players claiming a single chunk which blocks towns in a 4 chunk radius, by making this ridiculous size of a town you are directly making more chunks uninhabitable.
This is what you mention in your first post:
How many inexperienced staff gave their opinion? None. I did, and I'm not inexperienced
And I think this topic has had plenty of discussion, as per your request.
If you lost claim blocks due to a mistake and have not been given them back you can make a refund request. This also goes if you lost any important blocks, like machines.
