...does this mean we'll have to get rid of the FREE MARTIN slogans from our sigs?


Btw

Everyone who was banned due to an altercation under the previous admin should be unbanned, but only after staff have been put in place. Some noteable exceptions are obvious, like Louis & Teepo. I am not too 100% on others who would need to be added to the exception list, but qwerty is a good poster as far as i am concerned.


Also, and no offence to anyone who had a run in with him before, but its an absolute sin Alex (AxM) isnt on these boards.

I've had my beef with AxM and other members in the past. But I'd be happy to see him come back.

I said it before and I'll say it again. Everyone should be unbanned 100% clean slate. Anyone that just wants to be a prick will be banned quickly soon again. Most bans where done years ago when people where kids.

True, it would be easy to re-ban those who begin to start trouble. It would be odd seeing all those old members back here, if they choose to come back.

Well on the subject, i'd like to see Dorian return. Sure, he was dripping with male PMS but he can strike a solid conversation and constructive argument from time to time.

I don't mind QWERTY or AxM personally, even though with AxM he just really needed to chill the hell out near the end. I still remember him, very early on, as a good guy.

It is a legitimate topic of discussion. I think this should be retitled "Unbanning/ return of members", and moved to website discussion. Yama has asked for names in another topic after all :nice!:

It would be an interesting precedent, but if that's to be done maybe a system for warnings and bannings should be set up. Maybe a points/percentage system where different things mount up, and should you hit 100% you get banned, you could even have warnings/infractions disappear over time so if you were banned they disappear after a year or so...

I doubt most would come back. And even so, the guys who left because of Ryudo know, like the rest of us, that all he's really doin is spendin a bit of time away from here. I honestly can't see his website takin off, so he'll either jump straight back on here or spend a little time trying to revive the Hazuki Dojo site, and then come back.

If that were to happen, it would be the end of the Shenmue Community in my eyes.
