We have over 3000 members now. We’re a tiny site compared to some of our other competitors. To make things worse, we have over 350 users banned and over 400 silenced. Many of the banned members want to get back in, and currently, we don’t allow ban reversals unless the infraction was small. Everyone keeps telling us to set up a victim fund to payout scorned users. We never wanted to have one, as we really don’t have many people who got burned, but we know that will change once the site picks up in activity.
So, my idea was to offer banned members a second chance to get back in, providing that they pay a non-refundable victim deposit in the amount of 100 USD. I want to know what do you think about it?
- Yes, it’s a fantastic idea.
- No, I don’t like it.
Not all banned members would be allowed to get back in, the heavy offenders such as:
- users selling hacked properties
- users charging back funds
- users using fake identities
would not be let back in. We’re talking simple offenses such as soliciting off-site, vulgarism, etc.
So, what do you think?
