After recent staff discussion, I'd like to publicize this a bit more. It's been mentioned in passing in a few places, but I will say so here to make it "official".
We've decided that with the new community, we now have a fresh start. As such, we feel that fresh starts are something we should also be considering for our members. Therefore, we are willing to give second chances to people that were banned from FFN servers for non-hacking reasons.
We will be handling these on a per-request basis. If you've been banned, please submit a ban contest in the appropriate section of the forums, and your ban will be reviewed/overturned.
Please note that while you will be unbanned, your previous bans will remain on record, and will be taken into consideration for ban length if further bannable offenses or violations of our server rules occur.
