Everyone hunting to get jedi would have to be banned from this statement.

A lot of people check LUA's for the spawn locations & timers.

It may not be a DoS, but it's still highly disruptive harassment in the form of force closing ventrilo clients.

Not to mention how he joined IRC about 10 times through proxies spamming links to a questionable download that could very well be a malicious backdoor trojan, and then shouting highly offensive obscenities.

V
Then explain the following, is it not true?



^ This is the reason for a lot of the outrage, you were given special treatment, a name change. Who else gets a name change? If you did nothing wrong, as you say, then why apologize at all... why was a name change needed, and finally, why come in this thread and give more reason for those already pissed by your actions to protest more?

You have the potential to be a decent guy, I've seen it. You really need to work on anger issues though, and stop being so damned defensive when you know you're wrong.

My issue wasn't with you, it was with the decision to give special treatment, you just happened to be the recipient. Don't get that confused.
+3 Internets for you sir.

btw nice work putting a jedi trainer at the jedi ruins, was real hard to find.
A. I wasn't even online when an StK member unlocked, or even at the computer. I was at an appointment, I told this to kyle.

B. I wasn't responsible for the locations where the jedi trainers were. Dame was, and I did that ON PURPOSE so I wouldn't know where they were.

Nice try, but get your facts straight next time.

yeah its nice to play again, totally agree, loving it myself.

so it doesn't really matter to me if people get caught hacking.

its the ones who don't get caught that bother me.

and if a guy does get caught, tells us what he did and helps us fix it, then thats good for us all on that hallowed day that a full server goes live.

right?

why the fuss people?
If they doing it here they will be doing it on live. These people have been caught and allowed to cont. to do so now. They are friends with devs and gives them a get out ban free card. Enough said!

Forgive me, I'm new 'round these here sanddunes, but... are you folks seriously saying that you're upset about hacking and exploitation on a TEST server? In the real world of beta-testing, that just doesn't make sense.

Why on Earth would you be punishing people for exploiting, hacking, and otherwise helping to identify problems with the software on a TEST server? If this was a LIVE server, fine, but from what I've seen around this community, a lot of people need to get their heads out of their butts and understand that "TEST SERVER" means exactly what it says. If it was up to me, I'd do a mass-reset of the character DB once a month just to remind people that this isn't a live server, and they're no business expecting anything other than bug fixes and gameplay improvements.

Crap like this can only serve to help slow down development and demoralize the entire team, I'm sure.

... and I bet I just made myself a whole bunch of enemies. Welp, back to my day job! :P

About time someone with some power here steps in .... again ... damage control is needed.

Delete thread ... post a new one without the mentioning of Ashur ... and keep it under control.

I knew what you were doing. And i knew what you'd done.
Your life with me was ending. Your new life had begun.
But i was cursing your name. And i was cursing that room.
And i was praying for the strengh, to stop loveing you.

But to ensure that nobody does it on live, you need an exploit team devoted to actually finding and fixing exploits. You don't need people who have been banned multiple times for using exploits for their own purposes.
