I had a debate with a friend about the rules on lending equipment to your alts via proxies and we ended up taking it to the Admins. The Admins very clearly seconded that the use of a proxy character (controlled by another player) as a medium for sharing items between your alts is strictly against the rules.

No it's not. It's quite clearly described in in <help rules>

Code: Select all

 Actions taken by one character that directly benefit or directly influence the fate of the other (if both are controlled by the same player) are illegal.

Weird that so many seem to do it then :s Probably due to to few wizzies to monitor it I'd suppose tho :o

It's a full time job x 10 to try to catch all the cheating and rule breaking players do.:) If you want to help out, either wiz and join the AoP team, or continue to report those who cheat. I have personally suspended players for exactly the thing you describe when I was AoP though. I am sure Mirandus does as well. But a big reason players get away with things is actually because quite often when we get these kinds of reports, the reporting player refuses to give out a name, not wanting to be "the snitch" I would assume. I wish more players dared to stand up against various forms of cheating and actually report the names of those who cheat, or refuse them entry / kick them from their guilds, and similar. That would be very helpful.

I know you often do report suspected bots Draugor, which is good, and some others also report things, but more often than not it's "Why arent you punishing people who do X?" And we ask who they mean? And then refuse to tell. That's not helping much.:) Report those who cheat, and quite soon the cheating will stop as people realize the risk of getting caught is too high.
