    Default Corpuscle.

    Plat Farmer Spam is an irritant and detracts from the game play of DDO.

    Proposal: Alter the "Report Gold Farmer Spam", increasing its potency. When three persons report an account as "gold farmer spam" that account is prevented from sending any tells for three days and the GMs are immediately notified.

    To combat abuse by players who simply wish to do ill to others, a dialogue box would pop up saying "WARNING: Using this feature improperly will result in a 3 day ban of this account. Repeated improper use will result in a permanent ban. Do you still wish to report this person as a gold farmer?"

    As this would require three seperate people to each be willing to risk a three day ban in order to stop someone from sending tells until the GM was made aware, the likelihood of abuse is small.

    The result of this would be that although some spam will get through it will get through to only a few people, rather than the entire server, requiring gold farmers to constantly change accounts to even get through to a small number of people.

    Plat farmers enhance my gaming experience. I like to report them between throwing heals in Vision...it livens the quest up a bit.

    Yeah, I'm Sure the Plat farmers(or anyone for that matter) who are on temp accounts would really be concerned about a 3 day ban....

    Any banning MUST be handles by a live person.. Not some automated system.. WAY to easy to screw stuff up....

    Report and Move on......

    Exposed?

    You didn't expose anything to anyone, in fact, you protected them from exposure, because we still don't know who they are.

    What's your point?

    All you've shown us, is that there is a coin farmer playing on your server.

    Thanks for the news flash. I'm sure there are plenty of players who had no idea there were coin farmers playing DDO.

    In this world economy I would love to be able to have a job playing a game, making 5-10 times more than if I was working in a dirty, dangerous factory job. A factory that has chemicals, cancer-causing agents, and any other number of dangerous elements that arent regulated by a government laws.

    I can't blame him for his decision, but I can blame anyone who buys his services.

    Just dont spend real life $$$ on plat!

    Well unfortunately it would be against the code of conduct for him to have included the other player's name. If Turbine wants to know who it is, then they can find out quite easily by either asking him or looking at the chat logs.

    I was nervous when I first saw this thinking that someone posted nekkid pics of a plat farmer. Thankfully it was just text.

    You are aware that there are more jobs in this world than just "dirty, dangerous factory jobs", right?

    And yet do not presume to think "more jobs" are accessible or available to those in other societies outside of US borders.

    I think he's making the assumption that China has a lot of dirty, unpleasant factory jobs which make this sort of job perferable.

    And he's correct.

    I believe you are reading the quotes out of order. First was:

    then was:

    I was responding to the second.

    I agree with both you and mtmouse3. I believe the second quote makes the assumption that it is easy to choose not work in such factories.
