Garry's birthday is like free season for us, we come out of hibernation to begin our yearly cull
rilez; 20th of May, 2015[1]

Garry's Birthday is on the 20th of May - it is Facepunch tradition to unban everybody on this day, the unbanning however was absent until 2013 when a grand total of 13,188 members were unbanned.[2]

Some criticism to this is opening the floodgates back open for terrible users.[3]

In 2015, 10,321 accounts were unbanned for Garry's Birthday. [4]

The unbanning did not occur in 2016 nor in 2017, as Garry shifted his focus towards the next forum update.
