It's time for an Amnesty Event, so if you are banned or have a friend that is banned you need to pay attention and read this topic very carefully! Failure to follow directions will cause you application to be denied. Amnesty is an event that is done for the benefit of players who have learned their lesson and want a second shot at having their accounts back. It is not a right, and you will make no such demands in your application. Before you apply, keep in mind that depending on your reason for being banned, you account or specific items on it may be deleted and wiped clean.
What is an Amnesty event?
The Amnesty event is a chance for banned players to be unbanned. It is not a guarantee and you should not assume just because you apply that you will be unbanned. If you have an IP ban, your accounts will remain banned but your IP ban may be removed. If you are unbanned and given a second chance on any of your accounts, ANY transgression will result in a permanent ban. It doesn't matter how minor the infraction is, you will be on a zero-tolerance policy for the rest of your RebirthRO playing career.
Who is not eligible?
- Paypal fraud (charge backs, trying to hide credits, etc)
- Repeated disrespect of other players or staff
- Having Amnesty granted in the past
How do I apply for Amnesty?
Please an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- At least 1 or 2 characters on the banned account (or accounts covered in an IP ban). Note : Post real characters, not Lv1 alts you're using to identify the account but hide who you are. (Related note : must be emailed from the email attached to the account if you can, this will greatly improve your odds of amnesty)
- Approximate date of the ban.
- A brief explanation of why you got banned. (Don't lie about this. That does not go over well).
- Why you want another chance and any other notes about what happened, how you feel you can still be an asset to the community, etc.
All requests for unbanning may be posting for the general forum public to see, so if you take issue with others knowing why you were banned or that you attempted to be unbanned, I suggest you do not take part in this Amnesty Event.
The event starts RIGHT NOW and ends at 23:59:59 sever time, on Sunday the 25th. Any emails after this deadline will not count. Amnesty will be granted no later than two weeks after the deadline, so rest assured this round will be done much quicker than in the past.
Questions can be asked here. Do not go to Help Desk to ask questions about Amnesty. Do not make individual forum threads to ask about Amnesty. Do not PM individual GMs in game or on the forums to ask about Amnesty. Doing any of the above may disqualify you. If you have a question, ask it in the thread.
On another note: complaining about the length of the amnesty event, asking when the next one will be, or otherwise complaining about not getting unbanned will severely lower your chances of getting unbanned in the next such event, if there is one, and will lower the chances of this kind of event being repeated. We take the time to do this, essentially, because we feel that some things could have been mistakes and that people can change--try not to convince us otherwise.
