Discussion about what is Jail


Recommended Posts

If you have any questions about the nature of Jail, feel free to ask them.

 

The most recent announcement (https://magicduel.com/page/Announcement/view/3739) brings into line what Mur and I have been working on with Jail, to MD officially.

 

The most important part of this change is that Jail is not just a punishment.

Is it possible that a player could help finish the puzzle in jail?

 

I don't see what could prevent that from happening.. screenshots and out of MD communicating

 

As for what Jail is:

- a damp and dark place to rot for a while in, after wronging someone, no?

- definitely not the equivalent of a ban

- could use some visiting hours.. but make sure to thoroughly check us for magical escape pins, or the likes *cough* :p

Yes potentially. But I need to review it.

 

Just as a "quick" recap on what jail is/has been, here are all the announcements that relate to Jail's functionality and role (note: Not the posts that are just about someone being sent to/released from jail unless it also has relevant information). Note that there are a lot of other instances of Jail being involved in events that are not in the announcements.

 

Thanks for the list, please remember all that some of these announcements are old and therefore wrong.
