I'd like to announce that any accounts that were deleted or rank-stripped in the past will now be restored, and any assets or characters will be recovered to the best of our abilities.
This practice wasn't part of my vision for this site- I don't wish for any members to come back after a moderate absence, only to see their characters given away and their account stripped from them.
They all have worked hard for what they achieved here, and even in absence, they will keep that. (This is barring any bans. Their accounts will remain, but their assets will be taken away, as has always been the policy)
So if any of you know of anyone that this would apply to, please let them know that we will fix this error, and that we apologize profusely.
Any member that may have adopted a character from one of these individuals, please consider this. I can't make you give back a character due to complications and rules, but I do ask that you be aware of the situation and be considerate of those who were wrongfully stripped of their characters.
Thank you everyone, and I sincerely apologize for any conflict that this has caused you guys. I wish to correct it.
