Greetings, everyone.

I've had the unfortunate experience today of having to permanently shrub one of our highest ranked characters. He was caught over the course of a week using an autobasher that went beyond the confines of the rules listed in HELP AUTOMATION.

I want to take this time to remind our players that automating any system to the point that continual input isn't necessary, whether it be a bashing system, a fishing system, or even an automated checker for things like the credit market, are prohibited in Midkemia. As a rule of thumb: if you can step away from the computer and continue to gain experience, gold, or anything else, it's probably against our rules. I encourage everyone to re-read HELP AUTOMATION and adjust systems to make sure that they comply. If you've got a question about specifics, you're free to ISSUE ME with them and we can get back to you with whether it is alright, or suggestions on how to make sure it doesn't break the rules.
