2. Not sure I understand. Who would set the tag? The person who bots? Me?Alisa wrote: 1: People doing scripts are okay according to rules. Getting called away can happen, no way to determine if it is on purpose or by accident.
My solution, change in the bottest... if you script one area, and not respond untill area finished it is okay. If you script multiple areas without response it is not okay.
2:Allow people to bot, with a tag! So when you bot, you set the tag Botting, and become free target for others. Roleplaying wise, we could make it an event with for instance the darklings from Emerald have figured out a way to braincontrol people, and uses them for their own dark purposes. It gives the botters quite a challenge, and the rest of the players are still subject to the bottest
3: Use the wizard resources other places, and only check those reported to bot. And when Irk answers he isn't botting...(Sorry Irk, couldn't resist considering how many claimed you bot, and the wizzes had to actually write you were cleared)
4:If LD is acceptable for 2 hours, why is idlebotting not? People do LD, because then they can't get attacked... There is even a thread about making the LD period longer. I suggest same as i did in that one... If you are LD, idle-botting(either same room or only move/health commands) for 1 hour or such.... All your items are teleported to the racks of your guild(you should be able to set which guild)
5: Have fun..
4. Good question. It would be very simple to get around such a teleportation of weapons thing though... But it is kinda odd that you can be LD basically unlimited as long as you log in once every 2 hours, and in theory hold your EQ until armageddon strikes, but you cant idle with EQ. LD does come with a clear risk though, as you can forget to log back in, or lose connection, and you'll probably have to sleep at some point. When idling you dont have to do anything, just set up a trigger. So... thats probably a rule we'd need to keep. Although I think it might be good to specify a time limit. Obviously it's okay to take a bathroom break without LDing and/or dropping your stuff in a rack. Perhaps it would make sense to set the idling limit to 2 hours as well, since its the LD limit... hmm.
