I hope this will help understand why we have come to this decision. Besides our will to step up against hackers, this will benefit everyone in the long run.
So are you actually saying he is not allowed back on Test Center and that he will only be allowed on the private test server to be able to further investigate these exploits?

If that is true, then I think alot of people would understand and not be so against what is happening right now.

Just to make things clear. He is already back on the server.
And that is about just right if we believe the latest evidence concerning his ban. The real deal here is the whole QA position business.

Sigh. This really is a huge mistake.

That really does sadden me. I hope it gets corrected and he is put back on some kind of punishment. It really doesn't seem fair he is able to freely roam around on the TC when he can just as easily help you guys on the private server.

But doing it on a private server would only be half as fun.

This isn't about him having fun. It's about him being punished and having to work back to respect for what he did. If he shows remorse and gains trust back with working on the private servers, then maybe slowly let him back. Don't give him his jedi back and let him freely run around to cause more grief and hacks.

i think most of you people just want something to ***** and moan about. if its not ashur its going to be something else, like why isnt creature handler in or why dont we have swoops where our player housing etc etc etc. in the past week no one has thought of anything but themselves and jedi. not one post has been constructive, just simple petty attacks on a guy that made a mistake that hes been dealt with and seems everyone is power hungry to have a say in something thats entirely none of there buisness. serious people get a friggin new idea and direct the energy toward that instead of constant banter about ashur

So wait wait wait wait....
-Ashur + Storm hacks & exploits (recorded being caught and admitting it, in both audio and in-game)

-Ashur + Storm gets banned

-We are TOLD by the staff that ALL hacker's, and Ashur characters, were DELETED and BANNED.

-We now are told, his toons were never deleted and he's now been given a staff position?


So, the gist of it is. You can hack all you want until you're caught, and then all you need to do is apologize and "promise" to never do it again. Ashur has been unbanned, his toons never deleted (one or many of which he's exploited MASSIVELY and hacked on to get jedi). Ashur has been given a staff position. Storm, the largest exploiters AND hackers on the Emu project, are back and reformed.

AND, to top it all off Kyle went behind all the other staff's backs and changed the policy.

This will not go without a LARGE portion of the dev team & community leaving the project entirely, how could you think you'll get away with this ?!

PS: I'm going to be saddened when the donations for next month only reach about 400-500ish instead of 2grand this month.

[edit]:

He was caught cheating TWICE, banned TWICE. How will a THIRD time be ANY different, let alone public knowledge this time hmmm?
