Welcome to the Request a Pardon forum.
Here you may request a pardon from Sythe.org staff.
This forum is for users - banned or unbanned - to appeal for a pardon.
If you are already banned, you must admit to the offense that you were banned for. You do not seek to disprove evidence, for example, but are requiring a pardon from Sythe.org staff. If you are not banned, you may come forward to admit to an offense that the staff are not yet aware of.
It should be noted that the Sythe.org staff will not give out pardons lightly. The issuance of pardons is solely at the discretion of the staff. Pardons will be issued on a case by case basis, and only to those members whom we believe are of some value to the community, and whom are generally of good character and conscience, despite their previous misdeeds.
In order to request a pardon, you must:
- Be able to demonstrate reform of character and legitimate remorse and attempts to make restitution for previous misdeeds, through your recent (6 months worth of) sythe.org interactions.
- Be able to demonstrate good will toward the site without hostility, and be willing to accept the verdict of this pardon process without complaint or hostile reaction.
You will only receive a pardon if granted one by upper staff majority.
You may not appeal more than one offence every six months.
For all pardon requests posted after October 8, 2012, the following rules also apply:
- If the ban was for scamming, all victims must have been paid back, or at least contacted with an attempt at paying them back, before a pardon is considered. If any of the victims become active again, the ban will be reapplied until they are fully repaid.
- There is no longer any "conditional support" - (ie. "support, but with a permanent market ban/trade with caution/last chance usergroup") - staff supporting a pardon request must be fully confident that if the user returns, they are not going to be a further problem for the community, and that they truly deserve full reinstatement.
