I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I had a simple recommendation.

I'm not looking for attention, I'm not doing this for anyone in particular, and I may be naive in my request, but I hope it will be considered all the same.

RPH has been seen by quite a few people as dying recently. I don't share this sentiment. All the same, I do think that at one point or another it might be in the best interest of the server to do this, and it will allow those who are doubting to put their concerns to rest, meanwhile returning more life to the server, and benefiting the view of the admin team amongst those who don't view them favorably (not saying I'm such a person).

I believe that perhaps a clean slate should be made, a fresh start in regards to those who have been banned in the past. I recommend that for all individuals who have been banned, with exception for those banned for spamming the forums, an unban of both RPH and forum accounts should be granted. This would allow them all a second chance to RP and bring their ideas and their passions back to this server.

Those who are misbehaved and continue to act disrespectful despite this second chance will earn their second ban. As far as I can see, no one loses if this is applied, and any loose ends will be tied up rather swiftly. It might require a short burst of work, and I don't know how tied up with work you guys (Dr3ad and Goudy) are IRL, but I still think it's an option to consider.

Thank you for your time.

I think the people who have been banned from RPH have probably moved on to other servers.

while that is a fair assumption, there's several who would jump at getting back onto the server. But the chances are, they'll repeat the same things that got them banned in the first place. this is why unbans seem to be increasingly rare when the requests are submitted.

The Ban Appeal section of the forums exists for a reason, in fact for that exact reason. Giving everyone a 'free slate' would make the server extremely interesting for a month. And when I mean extremely interesting, I mean absolutely terrible.

Personally I think this is a good idea. There should be exceptions for the malicious players (there were a fair couple who got banned for intentionally crashing the server and that kind of stuff) but for the most part a lot of the people who have been banned through the years got banned for not /that/ much. Although unlikely, a clean slate would be beneficial for all.

How do we know if they are not ban evading already?

I'm against the idea of this. Sure, some unbanned players might return and maybe few of them are decent. But the chance that a literal ruiner getting unbanned and return to what they did outweighs the chance that we get a decent player. Online amnesty doesn't work due to the anonymity nature of the internet.

As I said before, I'm not asking for anyone in particular to be unbanned. I wasn't close with Nortwin and whoever else was banned recently. I just think this would be a beneficial move for the server.

As for the idea that relapses may occur, I already addressed that issue - people who relapse into being disrespectful and banworthy will be banned as they were the first time. As Traius said, being banned once is enough to make someone tread softly.

Concerning individuals who were looking to intentionally crash the server, I agree that they should probably remain banned.

I think a large issue concerning the ban appeals section is that people stopped sending in appeals because they generally don't get accepted. Hence, why even try if it's just going to be rejected?

This is very true.

I do believe however that after a year, people generally tend to forget why they were malicious or angry and many of them can return and rejoin the server without there ever being an incident again. But when it comes to these things I think it's better people prevent rather than having to plead their case. Small rulebreaking is only punished with a temporary ban, once that's over you can automatically come back. But in order to get a permaban, you -really- have to stick your head out. And you do so knowing you may get permanently banned when you're caught. This is something that applies to life in general: Think twice. And if you do make an appeal to a permaban, make sure you wait a year and write it humble and respectfully. And expect to get denied from the beginning, that way it can only get better éh?

i mean, i think generally i can get behind this

 

it might create a bit of a 'community shitstorm' to a certain extent but its not like its going to completely destroy all remnants of the server

 

and yeah, if anyone decides to act out heavily, im sure they'll be rebanned faster than u can say '.rp ann looking for a private rp partner for some fun hehe uwu'

 

even still i dont think the admin team will go through with this

feeling quite skeptical about how this idea will work in practice considering how much russian hackers have been booted out of the server along with grieving oldfags who most likely wouldn't care getting back to their former bs they've left behind

 

this will either work (roughly) or fail to draw enough attention

Maybe unban the people who weren't banned for shit like crashing the server or intentionally setting out to ban evade/ruin phases.

 

Also don't unban people who were banned in the past 6 months, otherwise their reprimand is just pointless.
