This was one of the best improvement ever made here, but I would like to suggest just a little thing, the removal of the green mark to bands that were whitelisted BUT blacklisted again.

For example: Band "Abominable Hamburguer" was whitelisted for a proper re-evaluation in the queue, but also, was blacklisted again for not being predominately metal based. Nevertheless, the band figures with green check mark in band appeals section even if the band was accepted or not in the queue.

My request is pointing to avoid confusion, many users may think that a green check mark is synonym of approval, and thus, an automatically accepted band in the queue, so, to avoid this misunderstood, wouldn't be feasible to leave those blacklisted bands with red mark again so the new inexperienced users don't get messy?

It's not like it's explicitly written in the rules, I dunno.

IMPORTANT NOTE: An approved appeal does not mean a band will be added to MA. It only means you can resubmit it.
