The Consequences of Bug Abuse (A Reminder)

1:12 am - Aurora Dior

Recently some of you have chosen to exploit a bug in which people who do not own the required item (Color Changing Ink) could manipulate their ink color anyway (By selling the item and continuing to use its functions). Some of you may feel that it is not a big deal because it did not involve the procuring of items or galleons that do not belong to you, however, it is STILL bug abuse.

To quote rule 14 of the site terms "Anyone found exploiting a bug to their advantage or to another users disadvantage will be expelled immediately. If you have knowledge of a bug, it is your responsibility to report it to the administration. Failing to do so in a timely manner (meaning the moment you realize there is a bug) will also be considered cheating."

All of these actions have been logged. Meaning that the staff knows not only exactly how many people exploited the bug, but the name of every single user.

I suggest that those of you who have gotten off with a warning this time take heed of this rule, and refrain from trying to get away with exploiting bugs, no matter how insignificant they may seem to you, in the future.
