    My question is, how would they know the amnesty was offered?
    That was my intent, first blanket amnesty for all banned would never be done considering what some of them were banned for. Racism, White Supremist crap more than a few are socks, plus as you said how do you find them to ask them to come back.

    This will not work unfortunately

    You do need an email address to register as a member. Even if a member has been banned, admin still has access to that address, right?


    I do think that some of the bans were justifiable and others were not. Right now this place would be better off if a couple of people were sent packing, but you can't ban everyone.


    I think it can work.

    Did you go read the ban list ethereal, If so I suggest you go over it again and think why each was banned in the first place. Even the ones that would be considered to come back doesnt amount to a handful.

    I could see it on a case-by-case basis. I know in the past a banned person went to Admin and made his case and was let back in.

    If you want a real reason which explains why this forum is in decline, one needs to look no further than the fact that Crepitus would be called upon to be a any official position.

    If that person was banned from logging in to the site, how did they appeal to admin?
