The standard offer It's simple: Wait six months, without sockpuppetry or block evasion. Promise to avoid the behavior that led to the block/ban. Don't create any extraordinary reasons to object to a return.

How does it work? After you have waited six months, contact a willing administrator or experienced editor (via your user talk page, email, #wikipedia-en-unblock connect or WP:UTRS) (list of administrators). If they agree a review is appropriate, they'll open a thread at an administrative noticeboard (WP:AN or WP:ANI). Discussion usually takes a few days. Apologies aren't necessary, just basic courtesy and a willingness to move forward productively. This is not a get-out-of-jail-free card, and administrators are not forced to unblock you, especially if you have not provided any reason why you should be unblocked other than your avoidance of Wikipedia for six months. You should still provide a clear reason why you should be unblocked. Banned users may request that they go through the {{2nd chance}} procedure, to show their ability to edit and improve articles according to Wikipedia's policies.

Eligibility The standard offer applies to community-based indefinite blocks and bans in situations where things just didn't work out: normal people, short fuses, etc. It doesn't extend to extremes, and it is ultimately up to the administrative community (on a case-by-case basis) whether the blocked or banned editor is eligible at all. Generally speaking, if law enforcement could have become involved then this offer doesn't apply. Bans placed by the Arbitration Committee and/or by the Wikimedia Foundation are not eligible for the standard offer.

Variations The six-month threshold can be adjustable under special circumstances. If an editor shows an unusually good insight into the circumstances that led to the block, and sets out a credible proposal for how they will deal with those issues in future, then a return might be considered sooner. On the other hand, if the indefinitely blocked/banned user continues to be especially disruptive, or has engaged in particularly serious misconduct, then some administrators may become unwilling to consider a return for a much longer time or, quite possibly, ever. Banned users seeking a return are well-advised to make significant and useful contributions to other WMF projects prior to requesting a return to English Wikipedia per this 'offer'. Many unban requests have been declined due to the banned user simply waiting the six months out, without making any contributions to other projects.
