A few months after deploying the beta version of Pardon411.com, our free form generating web app, we have decided to rethink the way it works. Over the time since the site was launched we had thousands of visitors and nearly 200 people go through the online system to complete their pardon application. We also collected a lot of feedback about the website, the idea, and most importantly how it made such an important task easy to do.
Carefully reviewing the data and responses we have collected we decided to completely change the format, goal, and presentation of the website. You will now find a lot more information and easier to follow instructions on how to apply for a pardon in the correct jurisdiction. The platform we chose to work with is MediaWiki, the same system that powers WikiPedia. Not only have we done a ton of research to provide visitors with all the information they will need to apply for pardons, we have opened up a way for people to discuss and ask questions.
We have taken down the form generation capabilities, as most people are comfortable completing a PDF form.
However we are planning on recycling the form generating system to another website, subscribe to our feed for further announcements. We have launched ApplyForPardon.com which has all the capabilities of the old Pardon411.com site
