We've had quite a few people requesting a whitelist recently. What if we set up a Google form or similar where people could ask to be whitelisted? That way, admins could be notified automatically.

Additionally, if you don't mind me asking, why was the server moved to a whitelist in the first place? It doesn't sound like there would be much of an advantage to having a whitelist over a greylist, as players still have to request that an admin un-greylist them. Having the server on a whitelist might also deter players who would otherwise play and make meaningful contributions to the server, but don't want to bother "applying" for the server here before actually seeing it.

We had a particular player who was evading bans. I had to not only ban their accounts but also their IPs. I'm likely exaggerating but I probably banned about 20 accounts and 10 IPs in 30 minutes before I just decided to move to a whitelist. It was pretty great, I'd ban the IP and then see the accounts they'd try to join with and ban those before they was able to switch to a new IP. Sometimes they'd join with the account I had just banned on the old IP from a new IP, and I'd ban that IP. Then they got smart and joined with a new account on a new IP.

While moving to a whitelist, the amount of interventions the moderators and admins have had to do has dropped considerably. Which has allowed them to focus more time on other endeavors, like Bed Wars and whatever else is going on.

I'm almost certain you are not exaggerating.
