Due to a recent issue in one of our Hardball Dynasty worlds, we want to be clear on a new policy moving forward:
If an owner fails to renew his franchise for an upcoming season and another owner subsequently takes ownership of said franchise, the previous owner will NOT be reinstated under any circumstances.
Previously, we had looked at these matters on an individual basis. If a world had not started its next season and the previous owner had committed a great deal of time with a franchise and there were no historical problems with the user and the world, we would reinstate the owner. Our thought process was owner A had invested a bunch of time and money on a franchise while owner B had invested no time and money, so let's reward the previous owner and forgive his forgetfulness. This will no longer be the case.
