I oppose. There are no ways to prove this. It is safer to assume he is lying and let him wait it out. if anything, I think we should remove his ability to do anything on this wikia so even if he is hacked he can't do anything again.
Sponge, we have NO proof of him being hacked. This should not be a vote. There is no debate because there is no evidence for either side. The inference we should make as staff should (sadly) be the worst. He is lying. We can't take his word and we can't take any bias. So we have to be impartial. A VOTE is not impartial.
I know this thread is for a vote; but you also asked for evidence. NO ONE can give this. He has broken rules and must pay the price. Hacked or not. He claimed he has been hacked before on chat. Claimed he changed the password. Obviously that solution failed. Leave this discussion alone; it is concluded. Sorry if this sounds harsh but letting him go with a light punishment tells any new wikians that they can get away with stuff if they say they had been hacked. tHIS is NOT a way to run a wikia.
