What my brother did was extremly mean, and I know he will not be getting his laptop back. I am extremly upset that this has happened.
I am truly sorry for all the trouble this has caused. As you said, "lifting it would grant whoever was on the account the ability to further leave harmful messages to other users." I think that he only did this to me, to be annoying. I don't think he'll do it anymore.
If you decide not to lift the ban, that is complelty fine, I was just wondering if it could be any sooner, since I really love chatting with other users.
I don't know what to say. that was such a stressful time for me of that massive vandal, i had to email the Fandom staff, the vandals kept coming, and i had no idea what to do. cath wasnt active that day so i was all alone. vpns where being used and i couldnt control it. i was prepared to block all fandom users from the wiki just to stop the vandals.
The full list. Of everything. I'm trying, I really am, to remember every single thing. I promise.
So, it all started with ALIEN. It was created to mess around with a few people, we really didn't want to hurt anyone. Luna took it a bit far, but overall that account/project* didn't really hurt anyone.
Luna called all of these vandalization plans "projects".
Then, Luna created Ana and Ruby and using two different devices she played each character to hurt people. I tried to stop her, but dismissed it after a while.
She then created Luna, and I made Lei. These were our main accounts, and I thought things would stop there. But they didn't. She created a batch of new accounts, and not very well, as they were all created around the same time, and created some dramas between the accounts and the admins. This was on both LCK and FFW. This I did end up trying to stop, but she threatened to blame it all on me, so I shut up to try and uphold an image. I know, quite dumb. But I was scared.
After that, I started to join in on the sockpuppeting, but at a much lower level. I felt really bad for ALIEN, so it was really hard for me to start vandalizing again. It really hurt me how much k was breaking other people. So I tried to make my accounts more passive. I really tried.
Now to explain the MagnoliaTree issue. I created her as a side account, as AvocadoBlossom was already getting some hate and things like that. She stayed behind Luna's back for a while, and then she found out. She told me that because I'd built this great rep with her, we could use her. I told her no, but she told me she would send screenshots of me sockpuppeting to the admins, so I listened. She told me to try to win Crystal, yourself, and MagicDaydreamer by being LGBT+. I told her how terrible this was. She used my account to do it.
She started bullying me, taking real friends away from me. Hurting me to the point of no return. She gave me anxiety. I hated her. I resented her. Yet I did nothing to stop her.
At this point, I was broken beyond belief. So I joined in. I took my pain out on others, I bit the hand that fed me.
At some point, I forced Luna to leave the wiki or I would tell. It worked. She's gone now.
