    i took it out of context, he was talking about bralex/val. post was edited accordingly.
  2. Vallath - Fate

    hahah i dont think you needed to go that far i do have something to say that carries some importance, take it as you will. when you look at scammers/liars/etc today there's something really unique to how the community reacts to the different ways they accept/ostracize them. speaking completely objective of my actions in the past, there's really a few different ways this could have played out. 1. Scam/Lie was caught, and apology issued community will hate him, and he'll really be banned from some bots, guilds, etc while he looks like a wuss with his tail between his legs, but in time people will forgive but never forget although they might forgive so apologizing was useless. really you just can't know what this person's intentions are. 2. Scam/Lie was caught, apology issued, then scammed again, rinse, repeat community will hate him, and they become completely banned from every bot, he'll look like a moron and no one will have respect for him. these people are stupid. 3. Scam/Lie was caught, no apology, (optional - scam repeated.) community will hate him, but they know who theyre dealing with and what their intentions are and don't have to second guess anything. they won't hide behind apologies, false or not, or have to deal with knowing who is against them or the few who are not against them. In essence I can't see how you can have respect for him apologizing, you'll never ever trust fate again so what does it matter if he apologizes? let's try not to flame plz.

    Lol, just as zaer said I'm not breaking through you're front door. It may not have been a bag I took, but who did the bot belong to? A guild of programmers.
  5. spartan_warrior/onuris

    Yup, I think you'll find that the idea of holding victims responsible for transgressions made against them has a fairly long and dishonorable history going right the way back to the burning of witches. I'm sure social psychologists have a technical term for it, but the more commonly used ones are misguided, bizarre, illogical, ridiculous and ofc dumb. Nope! He's the well known owner of a marvelous magical chocolate factory. Yup. Burning someone to death at the stake and being so stupid as to allow yourself to get bagjumped are pretty similar if you ask me. In all my years of playing this game (on and off...) I have never once been bagjumped in this sense. Lost a few from dying whilst training in the past sure, but never whilst mixing or sitting at a resource. There is no possible reason for it to happen. There is no reason for anyone to have a large bag full of items anywhere; they are simply inviting trouble. Basically these people cannot break throught your front door and into your house. The only way they can get your stuff is if you leave it lying around for them. Looks to me like you're pretty much a goon if you do not take steps to prevent this happening. You're a funny one zaer. Hussam's post, however, should be post of the year. You're really being a hypocrite. You type an almost same post in most threads where people complain they were bagjumped/scammed or whatever. No one is arguing it's not the victim's fault for not being more careful. Also, how come you defend noobish outlaw behavior from people who keep pulling off the same old tricks over and over but you were against one of the most pr0 outlaw actions in EL history?

    Last thing I read in console was "You were booted by asgnnny," for the Onuris character. Please let me know when he will be unbanned because as I was booted the "No Spamming" rule was highlighted in red. Had I known spamming tradebots was against the rules I wouldn't have done so, I thought nothing of it and apologize for breaking the rule. I have no gripes, complaints, or excuses, merely a question as to when I will be unbanned please. Thanks

    Hello:) I've come back to request an item wipe and ip unbanned, and character unlocked please. I apologize for wasting the time of the administration.
  10. make HyperBags more safe

    When you lock an a previous one your contents are added to the bag. Hyperbags were never meant to be safe, they're not your storage. Don't expect them to be there when you get back. Once it's locked and closed it's not safe, and expect it to be stolen if you cant put it in a smart place.

    Thank you for your fair judgement in this matter Radu, and I appreciate that you try to make your rules as consistent as possible. Before my character is unbanned I would like to request one last namechange, from Onuris back to Spartan_Warrior please, paid of course. You mentioned a small exception to the ban offer, but I wasn't sure which part you meant, could you please clarify? As for my choice, I will think it over and decide in 1 month whether to return items or get a storage wipe. Sincerely, Spartan_Warrior
  12. Guild storage protocol/conduit proposal

    Would also like to point out that everything SW just suggested here was exactly what the LNX code geeks were talking about in GM when they were talking about writing a specific LNX sto bot code. No original SW ideas here. Like that's never happened before... ( http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leibniz_and_Newton_calculus_controversy?wasRedirected=true ) Another thing could be done where the bot gives value IDs to each item, and adds them up before the trade. No transactions over 100kgc. Umm, pr0 thieves by definition make a living from their activities and generally don't get caught, the best code crackers find a weakness and develop a proof of concept, they also don't get caught doing things that could get them in trouble (at least most of the time). Yea, the police even checked all their tradelogs across multiple IPs, lucky ducks got away with it...

    You know what, you're right but I felt that your reply wasn't satisfactory so I let my opinion take over.***EDIT*** and I apologize ***/EDIT*** Regarding helping newbies, there is no lesson of morals taught withthe tutorial npc, I felt the obligation to suggest such long hours of service to the community because recompensating LNX for only double the items I took would be a slap on the wrist.<edit> And in some way, I would begin to serve the community, in other words, giving back to the community. </edit> In this fashion, my life would be hell, and you wouldn't have to babysit daily, perhaps spend a half hour at the end of the 250 hours served. I would like to kindly ask that you take my punishment as a suggestion, and manipulate it however you see fit. Thank you for your kindness.
  14. Banned

    Your contradicting post yet again confuses me Ms. Aislinn, you said I do not get to suggest a punishment, yet you comment on different aspects of what I suggested and how they would work. The no alts rule is so that for the next 7 months I can't even touch my character. My time would be spent helping newbies and afaik, I've done a pretty good job of that, with the exception of 1 incident where I said "no" when someone asked for help and I was on an alt. Logs show that I was on channel 1 helping after my ban, but you didn't see that either. Then you say you wouldn't be willing to spend that much time checking my logs unless I paid you? Ok, let's say I paid you, for such a heinous punishment which outweighs most punishments i've seen, it would not be fun for me to play this game, yet I am willing to do it. "What happens to that stuff we haven't decided". - So what the heck does this mean? You'll be returning scammed items? Lastly, the way you answered my forum pm was the same way you've been reading most of my posts. I am not, FFS, complaining I got caught. I am not begging to be unbanned, and I'm not running around disrespecting you or your moderation team. Yet you feel the "obligation to talk to [me] like [i'm in] kindergarten?" For no reason other than I was caught scamming massive amounts of gc? I am not like "everyone else," and I even went so far as to explain to radu how the bot bug worked after I pulled off the scam. Whatever the outcome this next statement will always stand true, thank you for everything the moderation team has done for me, and for making this game a better place. You don't get recognized for that enough.

    please see ps So in the end I know I've pissed off many people, and many people would like to never see me return to this wonderful game. But if I may suggest a punishment that is not easy, or in my favor, I would like to return to the game one day. This is my peace offering of sorts, and perhaps a way of righting the multiplay rule I broke. I would be willing to serve a ban period of 90 days, with an IP ban lifted so I may enter game for the following reason. I would commit to serving 250 hours minimum of newbie help service on help channels and Isla Prima, and if I predict correctly, would only take me maybe 4 months. At the end of the 250 hours served helping on Isla Prima, there could be a review period, where the hours served of community service would be double checked. At this point, theoretically speaking, the bans would be lifted, and alts restriction clause (no alts rule) would become active with the character (Onuris). However, with the unbanning of the character there would be one very specific clause, and that would be to recompensate the LNX guild bot, via a third party, with all items that were multiplayed with, with the exception of the items taken during scam. So any items that were traded before scam would be returned. It could be easily argued that, that is not enough, so inn addition to that I would cover compensatory damages in the form of doubling every item from before scam within 4 months. These damages would be repayed within 6 months, or IP Ban would be reactivated. Is this a satisfactory punishment? ps: Aislinn, I spent the whole day reading your post, and deciding what I wanted to say to each one of your remarks regarding my ban and my actions. But posting what I wrote down on 2 pieces of paper would do nothing more than cause arguments and seem like excuses. With all due respect, my opinion is you're looking at my case in a very biased, opinionated form, and some of the comments might have been unnecessary from an objective point of view. However, I do not wish to cause such harm with my diction and sarcasm so I will refrain from addressing your post.
  16. Guild storage protocol/conduit proposal

    I could think of several failsafes that could possibly work, but no matter what you do someone will find a way to abuse the system. Nothing is perfect, and the only way is putting your neck on the line and your trust out there. You could make the bot only allow 50 S2E ings out at a time and to get 50 more s2e ings, you would need to put 50 s2e's in (if its joule/recycling). Less for hydro (10 at a time, more for FE (10k at a time). A couple other things could be done, if you wanted to be creative with your coding.

    Thank you. Always interesting to hear someone's reaction, however most of the congratulations were not public forum posts, so for that sir, you are brave.
  18. Pyromaniac

    No, pyro didn't give me anything of value. He sold it, then sold the gc, it was a favor.

    I would have never even traded with the bot had I not been given specific permission from Aislinn to partake inthe project. I could have taken everything in that bot with the old SW, and with the new SW. Is that not the same?

    Can I ask if this is accurate? It's just that I can only send 1 PM/#GM or line of chat per second, even if I use <ctrl> + <up arrows key> AFAIK this is hard coded into the client or is there a flag that can be set in the options? I only ask as a matter of personal interest. Mods if this is inappropriate in this thread please delete my post. I am writing and proofing a reply for aislinn but for now can confirm that afaik you can't spam gm/channel posts/local faster than once a second. With pm there is an exception.
  22. Banned

    This was discussed via forum pm with Aislinn at the time I bought the new character. Request:May I post the PM in it's entirety on this forum please. You and the people before you who posted have no relevant information(with the exception of Korrode) I am not the first, nor the last to scam a bot. No I was not warned to stop spamming the bots, however, I was in conversation with asgnny before he booted/banned me from the game. In addition to that, I was followed in demi-god mode by him whenever I made a mapchange, or moved out of his sight in game. I am not crying or whining, merely recanting the information. Request:Do I have permission to repost these PMs here? Yes, I locked your Onuris character. I don't think spamming bot owners and the server alike with (literally) thousands of rapid-fire PM's (often several per second) is in any way reasonable, nor within the confines of the spirit of the rules. It is my understanding that the gc and/or items you obtained from the Adarah bot were obtained only through your having broken an in-game rule. As such, I am considering those proceeds as "fruit of the poison tree". In other words, those items are ill-gotten. I would consider unlocking Onuris once these illegally obtained goods are returned to that bot. To clarify, I consider the items obtained as a result of misplaced trust (i.e. those from the LNX bot) were obtained legally. That's like asking Bernie Madoff if the SEC told him that securities fraud was illegal. This was obviously a deliberate attempt to breach a bug, possibly a server bug (not 100% certain as of the time of the lock), as it has been explained to me by a bot owner. While extra code could be added to double-check that the ID"s being sent from the server are not crossed at any point, this does should not exonerate anyone deliberately (paraphrasing from the rules:) exploiting and communicating the existence of any exploitable (one which grant the user unnatural or unintended benefits) bug. Assuming for a moment that the bug is in the bot code (mind you, Onuris is not currently locked for exploitation of a bug), that does not mitigate the fact that the server was deliberately spammed with thousands of messages over a relatively short period of time. I believe our friendly UObeyUOk bot was disabled for this same reason. If it's okay for one player to send thousands of messages in a short interval, is it not then acceptable for everyone else to be able to do the same? This situation is brought to the foreground as most bot owners have their bots set up to forward (via PM) the commands received by their bots. This feature is useful to catch abuse, as well as to provide real-time knowledge of which items are selling. For normal use, the end result is useful knowledge being passed to a bot owner about trades and commands sent to their bot. This is a valuable service, and I believe, is why I believe bot owners are willing to spend $100+ at the EL shop for their bots. Following is what I propose as the most expeditious, reasonable resolution to the issues at hand: 1) A complete review of the events which transpired, to determine which, if any, goods were obtained illegally. 2) Verification that no illegal multiplay has occurred. 3) Verification that no (server) bugs were exploited. 4) The return of any illegally obtained goods. 5) Onuris would be unlocked (assuming 2) & 3) check out). I am hopeful that this situation can be resolved quickly and fairly. edit: thanks radu... At the time I pm'd you, and I am paraphrasing, you said "I'd be the first to know if I broke a rule," yet I was not notified by you what rule I specifically broke to receive a ban/boot until radu decided to intervene. Along with that, I told you that radu knew how I manipulated the bot code, and I requested you talk to him. You took it upon yourself to tell me you'd talk to him in your own time, and so your sarcastic "thanks radu..." is ironic. Part 1: I was given permission to rejoin in the project that is correct, however, I could have done the same thing with my original character, could have taken the same FEs, bars, harvestables, so having the new character did not change my advantages/priveledges/opportunities in the bot/guild/project. Where did you see dragon armours and medallions being taken from trades?? If you're recalling Quesar's post you are mistaken as those things were borrowed for an instance and then returned the same day. If given permission to repost your forum PM, I would like to make clear that your statement specified something very specific. You said that my old storage must not come back to me, (paraphrasing). That sto was liquidated on the market, and the gc value estimated at 750kgc was sold to a third party. I do not have the right to disclose who that was sold to, but if you feel you must know you could check the logs, ask me specifically, or forum pm me. Which alts are "stocked up?" What were they "stocked up" with? And who did it come from? AFAIK all my alts are sto-less noobs with harvest 20 to join guilds. There is no "few other people" either, and again I would like to kindly request that this thread somehow be made specific so that I may disclose personal financial information and names that should remain anonymous. If I am allowed to repost my side of a forum PM, I will do so now. Does this look like a question one would ask who's trying to circumvent the rules? Just because you may think I know better, means nothing. Is it not enough to apply logic in my thoughts when we both have different opinions of what is Spamming. Spamming is an annoyance tactic used to disturb/irk someone, basically just really piss them off. And I will bring this up again when I address another part of your quote. Part 2: Let's go back to the forum PM please, my side of course, granted if I'm allowed to post it. The prior forum pm quote was the only "grilling" I did, and all I did was ask the same question twice, just wording it differently. Troublemaking was NOT my intention when I "wasted moderators time." The only thing that was done to waste moderator time was when I was being immature with the resale of a perk removal stone attempting to maximize my profits. When I found corpus had 5 hp, and couldnt kill him with a noob char, I found it very annoying that it was considered "spying" that I took my main char there after that. It really is common knowledge corpus has 5 hp, and either way corpus is a bot with no drops. I am sure there was one or two other things I did, and I would be more than happy to address them should you like to bring them up. Granted I did send you another PM after your reply, but you obviously didn't see that it was worth replying to, so I feel it's not worth mentioning. At the time of writing, it has been 50 minutes since my request to appeal this ban in a private medium, I posted 2 minutes after Aislinn so I thought she could throw in a quick yes or no before she left. So to the best of my ability I will discuss any matters regarding any of my trades with you here, and forum pm. I have paypal screenshots/logs, depending on how you prefer them. I have other requests aswell... With proper time and cool collected conversation I will attempt to show how the old SW character was sold, and his posessions were sold into the EL market for gc. That gc was then sold to a third party whom I disclosed in PM to a mod, and shared with you. I would like to also ask that the fact that I "wasted moderators time ever since I came back" be called with specific situations, dates, and the amount of times they occurred. If there is anything else the moderation team would like to, or could suggest, I would appreciate it. Hopefully this matter will be resolved swiftly. I have no problems/complaints with the EL Moderation staff, the time and hours they put in, or the game and it's community. I respect everything you do, and would like to motion for a more in depth look at the logs.

    Before I begin to ask for an appeal, I would like to petition this thread be discussed in a private medium so that I can disclose personal information. Is there anything that can be done for that.
  24. Idea for new potion

    Yes, technically 7500 gc is not destroyed, but you're sto is now worth 7500 gc less than what it was before the breakage.
  25. Idea for new potion

    Yes the gc is in the game, but the gc you had, your item had a value worth of gc at any given point. That value was destroyed, ergo, gc was destroyed.
