  1. Okay so I know this seems a little crazy but I really think the EMC community should consider this and hear me out.

    I think that banned players (after they have had an unsuccessful appeal) should have the right to buy their way back into the empire, "Buy a second chance". I think that to prove that they are sorry for what they did and to prove that they want to have a second chance, I think that players should be able to pay maybe $10 - $25 IRL dollars.

    Because I think if a person is willing to PAY to get themselves back into a server I think that it does show that they care and want another chance. But of course there are problems with this. What if there is someone who just keeps getting banned and buying their way back into the server? Well, you are only able to purchase 1 "second chance" every year.

    I think this would be a great money maker for EMC and would generate a little bit of extra money. I hope Aikar and the staff see this and maybe give it a trial run to see how it goes.

    Thanks everyone for your time!

  2. Erm, no.

    As far as I can see, if this was introduced, the only thing that buying an unban would actually prove would be the fact that they have a lot of money to burn and $15 would be nothing to them if it allows them back into EMC to cause more trouble.

    If they have failed their appeal it show they do not want another chance and shouldn't be allowed back into EMC

  3. I said that as a price EMC could decide on any price they wanted or thought was suitable?
  4. Also that is why you may only do it once a year.
  5. As far as I know alternate accounts are allowed in cases that are not major or repetitive. If people are willing to pay I think a second chance with a new name is probably better for them anyway. It seems easier than having a whole unban system set up, and it makes it seem less like EMC values a bit of money over their original decision not to unban an account for one reason or another. If there is a case where you can't use an alt, then really there is no reason they should be able to buy an unban for the original account in any case.

  6. Sorry this is not something we would add. As said above, they can buy a new account.
