Amnesty

Recommended Posts

Don't agree with having to pay for something like this but okay

Maybe $25 and no final warning? Or don't pay and you get final.

I'm not sure that paying will attract a lot of banned players, but I guess it's nice for those who are dedicated enough.

I think it's reasonable to pay 25€. I say that because if those banned were to join another community they would probably pay more than that to get 'perks' anyway. 

Those that truly want to return for the right reasons will pay it. Those that pay it for the wrong reasons are just pissing their money away because they'll get banned again.

All in all this way of doing the amnesty is fair. Before anyone slams it, let it run for a while then evaluate it. This way is fairer than just saying no.

For those who try to appeal for a return I wish you the best of luck.

Remove the one year thing tbh, 25€ is punishment enough.

Making someone pay almost 30 bucks to play on a dead server may not bring the banned ones back.

Server has been popping again at the moment, and if people are willing to pay 100-200 euros simple for cosmetics and TS channel perms people are willing to pay 25 to be able to play here again.

Agreed, 25 euros + being on final warning for a while is enough punishment

I'm taking at least 90% credit for this @Roland, unless it goes wrong.

Nice job though.

It's to avoid situations where someone gets rightfully banned and comes back the next day.

Right, I can see & understand that. What if it was 6 months instead of a year?

Also I assume this means there are now no longer any free unbans? In any circumstances? 

Referring to the fact that obviously people have been unbanned beforehand if their ban wasn't that serious and haven't had to pay.

It's business as usual, you would normally only be unbanned from a permanent ban if the points that lead to your ban were successfully appealed and reversed. But not like "The verdict was correct, I'm sorry" ban appeals, those will still not be accepted just like before. In the last year or so we have enforced a strict no permanent ban removals if the verdict was correct policy.

While I sympathize with those who can't afford the 25€ security deposit, I'm not opposed to it.  It's much better than the 100€ suggested last year.  

Like others, I wish the security deposit could be returned after a successful final warning appeal, however, I also understand why that is not going to happen.    

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.

It's better than just saying no to an amnesty and people have paid much more to get those shiny perks in this community and others.

It's simple, they will pay it or they won't, but before it's slammed let's first see if it'll work. If it doesn't then it can be amended. Time will tell.

That's not gonna happen, we love final warnings here and even if you did get unbanned and no final you'll still be treated as if you're on it.

Just FYI you should check with BIS about this, they only let people charge for access to their games with strict permission from them
