[quote name='Fang Archbane' timestamp='1360547982' post='132402']
But back to the point. Some very important people have told me that playing on another account [b]while[/b] letting an "alt" get farmed is in bad taste.
[/quote]

It's the while (bolded) that's the key term. For some reason, when I go idle on an account, go to the main page, and click 'login' (to try and login with another account) it just automatically logs into the account that I set as idle. I thus have to logout of one account before logging in on another. Maybe this is [i]intentional[/i].

I'm sure that there are ways around this, however I don't use any of them. Maybe this is the 'bad taste' that the others were talking about?

Edit: Yes, I can see the thinking that FFS isn't benefiting Fang Archbane, at least not directly. However it removes the sacrifice of taking on a role. If you only logged onto one account at a time, then you'd have to choose how you spend your time - as a punching bag, or as a fighter. I think that this is intentional also.

It would deprive people of training.

That's your choice to make. Believe me, I quite like what you're doing, especially since I'm in skilldamage from unbalanced fights. It's very helpful, so thank you for your [b]time and effort[/b]. Mind you, this time and effort becomes a lot less when you can just idle away while having fun on other accounts.

Did awiiya play on another account at the exact same time as he was becoming a tree? If he did, and if others did similar things, then I guess I've greatly underestimated the sacrifices that some people here have made for their roles.

If your main issue with being a dummy is that you don't have fun while you're at it, you're doing it wrong. You need to be active, create your own fun, and talk to people, then the people who hit you talk back. Of course, if you're just an idle target anyway, nobody will bother to interact with you. That way you're just the punching bag in the gym, use it and forget it. That hardly even qualifies for a role, which is the one point that you try to make, but a sole farming alt.

No. He's just helping out and sacrificing his whole account for the Community.[/color][/font][font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400] So many fighters appreciate Fang, I've seen it myself.

He [b]wants[/b] to help the community, that is, he probably [b]likes[/b] helping the community. Therefore, helping the 'community', while it might be called selfless, is a selfish act. Also, does everyone like what he's doing? Maybe some people don't want people to have a punching bag, thus he's harming that part of the community by his actions. No one is stopping him from helping the 'community' by being a punching bag. Ironically, what you want to let him do is harm the 'community' by being a punching bag, and something else simultaneously.

So you're saying that rules should be bent around someone's selfish wish to help the 'community'? I sure hope that someone doesn't decide to help the community by trying to make people learn to fight for themselves (and using multiple accounts simultaneously to do so). Yes, it's arguable whether or not Fang setting a consistent ritual for people to practise against encourages people to learn how to fight. One could legitimately take the position that it doesn't help people learn.

One person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter.

1) Fang Archbane is not an "alt", he is my Main.
[color=#800080]If a player has multiple accounts, they're alts of each other, there's no "main" tag other than defined by ourselves. You have multiple accounts and so FA is an alt, just one that's used a lot[/color].

2) His very ROLE is to be farmed. He is my ONLY account that gets farmed.
[color=#800080]That it's the only account doing it, is mostly irrelevant. That it's the character's role, is rather hmm.[/color]

3) He does more good than bad. Yes, i hear it every day. "why supercharge the noobs if they learn nothing about fighting?"
[color=#800080]Depends upon perspective, to yours, and those using it, yes. To others, particularly those that had to work hard for their stats etc, it would probably be the opposite.[/color]


I would agree with Burns in that you shouldn't be purely there as a "punching bag" - if the sole use of that account is as such then you are bordering abuse, however if you were to interact with others through it and other things besides allowing others to attack you, to make a fuller role out of it, then it is more permissible I would imagine

Hi Change,

If one (Fang in this case) wants to do something for the community, then he should accept the consequences, good or bad.
In his case, he should play with just his main account: Fang Archbane.

There was a history on this exact subject with more ppl "selfless" helping each other with multiple alt accounts. He himself mentioned about it : "CrazyMikes in Maze".
Fang is just testing the ground and attempting to "win the community" in his wrong-doing.

Currently there is nothing I can do, nor I will (too soon), but as there is already an announcement about this exact activity, then he should have been punished on spot:
- jail for both accounts
- PM from council : choose account to be banned according to announcement ..(see above)

He has already a history in "mistakes" and he is always testing to see what other rule he can bend.
And worst of all, he is [b]again [/b]challenging the Council to act "against the good of community".

Fine, Change, let him do it. Lets see what he will become.

Also, do note :
[quote]As an MP7, he can not. Hed become the next Eon, and that is something he will never do.[/quote]
He is just [b]bored[/b] of his good-deeds.


Best regards,
No one


PS:
- We are not afraid of another Eon (there is no other with skill damage), even if he hates me and
- there are a few more ppl with HUGE stats ... I still wonder what were his true reasons for becoming MP7

If i put up an alt as a punching bag, would I be allowed to do it too? Tomorrow if tom, dick and harry request the same, would they be allowed too? And followed by them, every alternate player in MD asks for the same should they be allowed as well? There was a place where people used themselves and their alts as punching bags. It was known as GGG - Golden Globe Gazebo. Initially they didnt mind being boxed and kicked. Later on, All they wanted to do was to be tapped gently on their backs. And anyone who wanted to learn boxing or kickboxing was thrown out and banned from that place. And oh, since everybody thought that learning the hard way was bad for them, MD became empty. And very very few, less than a handful knew the basics of combat.

I understand what you are trying to do here fang. It is appreciated by many, disliked by the rest. But if the council makes an exception for you, they'd have to make an exception for every single player who asks for what you are asking.

P.S. - I doubt there can be another eon. People may end up as bits of him, but never a whole eon.

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]It would be a selfish act if he had he been gaining anything from it. I strongly disagree with your perception.[/color][/font]

Maybe some people don't want people to have a punching bag, thus he's harming that part of the community by his actions.

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]Definition of harm, since you CLEARLY do not know, is to deliberately inflict a physical injury. A book sitting there is very useful to those who want to make good use out of it. Is it harming those who don't want to read it? lol :))[/color][/font]

So you're saying that rules should be bent around someone's selfish wish to help the 'community'?

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]I never said that, nor should it happen. Please read my post again if you still don't understand.[/color][/font]

One person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter.

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]I can't agree more, honestly. But I must say, that is irrelevant to Fang's case. Neither is he a terrorist, nor is he fighting for freedom. Take advantage of him if you like, he doesn't mind that, but he's not the one attacking, we are.[/color][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]Allowing isn't the case her at all in my opinion. He's been doing it for a long time. Many of us have alts which we set up when MP3's, etc need them for losses/wins. Tell every single of those people to stop doing that, why just Fang?[/color][/font]

But if the council makes an exception for you, they'd have to make an exception for every single player who asks for what you are asking.

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#006400]Fang is already exceptional. The "every single player" you are mentioning isn't MP7, nor has an Illusionist's Meteor in his inventory. When they work hard enough to get those, feel free to ask Council for making an exception.[/color][/font]

As DD suggested , I hereby ask Council to take note on this matter and do the needful.

Also, as you the Council does take its time for it, I will proceed as Fang does: "I propose" .
So, [b]I propose the removal of his "MP7/Meteor" for use in alt abuse[/b].

Also [b]I propose warning DD for [/b][b]inciting to "[/b][b]alt abuse"[/b].

That would be like saying just because Azull is the King of Necrovion, he can get away with giving away every spoiler he can think of... The 'exception' to the rule. These rules are in place for a reason. And those who are in roles of power should be punished more harshly then those who aren't. Simply because when a King or Queen or who ever breaks rules and isn't judged harshly enough, their people are sure to follow in the footsteps and break these rules as well.

I'm guessing you googled 'harm definition'? Did you know that there are multiple uses for a word? [url="http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/harm"]Definition of harm according to Merriam-Webster. [/url]Harm does not have to be deliberate, nor does it have to be physical. It, in fact, like lots of English words, is very much conceptual.

All of this discussion is irrelevant anyways. It's not normally possible to log onto two accounts at the same time, thus one would assume that circumventing that game mechanic is against the rules. If it's not, then perhaps a thread should be started proposing that people should be easily allowed to log into multiple accounts at the same time.

@Change:

The game interface doesn't allow it itself but I wouldn't go so far as to say not normally possible means against the rules. Sort of like using the hotlink to the item tab to be able to transfer items by ITC on accounts that don't have an item already...

Click idle, open link, log in. This link is provided to us each time we log in normally.

[/quote]

Why do you admire and respect blind support? All of my best friends have the guts to stand up to me and tell me when i do wrong. I would argue that blind support is merely a group of yesmen urging you on without actually helping you and i feel real friends wouldnt do this. To me having a group of yesmen is merely good for the ego and nothing else. They cannot help you improve your ideas by offering suggestions becuase they will follow any plan blindly no matter how poor it is. You disagree?
