About

Webunal? Webunal what?
The name Webunal is a simple mashup of the words "web" and "tribunal" (a court of justice). This describes what we do fairly well; we're an online court. What differentiates us from any other court is, like most of the internet, that the users reign supreme. Also, verdicts in the Webunal are not legally binding in any way. Alternately they put pressure on it's users to do whats right when exposed transparently in front of their social network. As the online world merges with our day to day lives we hope this can contribute to a more respectful and transparent environment both online as well as AFK.
