TC Bulletin and Policy Change 10/15/09
 
Hi Everyone,

We'd like to note a policy change in our Test Center Rules and Policies.

We will now be responding to hacking, exploiting, cheating and duping with a Zero-Tolerance policy. This means your account will be perma-banned for ANY and ALL exploiting, hacking or duping when proven beyond a reasonable doubt, either by hard evidence or by activites witnessed by staff. Staff do have the right to view users inventories, statistics, credits and activites without their knowledge, as is expressed in our newly published Privacy Policy.

A number of players from the community were also perma-banned for continued hacking, exploiting, cheating and griefing. All future individuals who intentionally and maliciously attempt similar activities will be met with zero-tolerance. Individuals or associations involved WILL NOT be discussed with the community. Please respect this.

We are also investigating turning off the Speed-hacking detection software (rubber banding). This post will be edited with an update on that when a decision is reached.

Behavior from the community, and sadly, even staff,will no longer be tolerated when it is designed to undermine the project or community.

If in doubt - please contact us or post here. We'll endeavour to respond to your questions, as long as they're civil.

Regards,

so....a number of people were banned for, among other things, griefing. i really hope that means something truly bad and not people complaining about a good old fashioned 3 cap lol

They have the ability of appeal. It is pretty hard to intentionally speed hack, however. Anyone who finds an item dupe or exploitable bug should report it ASAP.

So, I guess the question is, does there need to be intent?

I have managed to dupe a couple hundred thousand credits, simply because I was sending them between alts just before the server went down (alt as a sales-mule, there wasn't a 'shutting down in 30 seconds' message). I made a good, unintended profit because of a bug, but it wasn't my intention to abuse the system.

Should players be worried about getting banned because bugs affect them, or does there need to be clear INTENT on gaining from exploiting a bug?

That explains it I guess.
