:Per our conversation on [[mh:m:IRC|IRC]], I am posting my rationale for using the <code>unblockself</code> permission. I believe the block was wrongly made and poorly justified. I had received messages of support from other crats in the hours before using the permission, and as such I felt comfortable in using it. If I had been alone in believing the block was wrong, I wouldn't have removed it, and instead elected to wait for another member of the community to remove the block. Void had also removed the hard-line restrictions, and as my edits were non-disruptive, there was no need for a block.

:: {{tq|I had received messages of support from other crats in the hours before using the permission}} Actually, no, you received [https://test.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:BrandonWM&action=history&offset=20220914235959&limit=3 no such messages] between [[special:redirect/logid/25100|being blocked]] and [[special:redirect/logid/25104|unblocking yourself]]. There were no messages of support from other crats when you decided on your own it was wrong and removed it. Even after the fact only one person agreed that it was OK for you to unblock yourself (not "other crats" plural) - with four users including a consul agreeing it was not OK.

:: {{tq|and as such I felt comfortable in using it}} You shouldn't have. It will never be OK for a user to unblock themself, especially as seen in this discussion. If it was really that bad someone else will. There's no need for you to remove it yourself.
