The first being if someone is banned is it possible to be unbanned. I'm just wondering I'm not seriously considering a bannable offence.

The second being, why are bands rejected if you hear some songs composed by them? Isn't this proof that they exist? Or is it because you're not sure if they are off a demo or something? I'm asking this because to bands I submitted got rejected because of lack of evidence which is fine. I'm not really upset about it or anything, I'm just curious.

Thank you for your time.

1) people can be unbanned yes but only for good reasons: if they were good contributors and that we decide we can forgive them or if we were wrong when we banned them (ex: reviews and its original writers, using 2 different nicknames here and on other sites, if we 1st thought it was plagiarism)

2) only some mp3 posted on myspace or soundclick do not prove there exists a demo, physical release (tape, cdr, cd, etc) is needed

How do you provide concrete evidence that the band has actually released something? Do you need the cover art???

Nice scan of the whole demo and a myspace page can be considered proof enough, but almost never a myspace page alone.
That's how you should do it:

Tip: Do not concentrate on myspace only, go through the back issues of your favorite webzine, metal mag and I'm sure you'll find something submission worthy. And when on myspace, search for neutral info on a certain band elsewhere too.

I had a band rejected because it just listed a demo as existing on their myspace page. Later I added the band again when I found a revie of the demo as well and the band was accepted.
