Subj: Auctions and Bugs

Hi all!
As some of you might've noticed, I've had to reset the bidding on several of the auctions. It seems we had a player who, after finding a bug that gave him an unprecidented amount of gold, decided that instead of reporting it, he'd use it for his own advantage and wiped out bids across many of the auctions.
First off, to deal with the auctions, we've reset the bids on the auctions he had a winning bid on, and have extended the time remaining on all auctions by 24 hours. That should hopefully give everyone time to re-set their bids for their favorite items.
Secondly, as you can imagine, I've had to shrub the character who bid on the auctions with the bug-generated gold. I want to make it clear, though, that I did not shrub him for having a bug. I shrubbed him because he knowingly used the bug to his own advantage. Bugs will happen, there's nothing wrong with them happening to you. If, in the future, a bug happens, please, please bug it so that we can fix it. I know it can be tempting to run away with it, but it ruins the game for everybody.

Penned by my hand on the 12th of Wochem, in the year 55.
