Reminder about IP checks and hacking
1stNov 24, 2013
- Just a reminder about a few things that have been coming up lately relating to IP checks and hacking.
1. Hunger Games and Stars – while we randomly check other games for multiple accounts, especially when reported by other users, these two kind of games are IP checked whenever a new one enrolls or when a moderator gets to it. If we see a user who either shares the same IP as another or who has logged in at the same device as another user then we will take action based on the rules in our profile and based on your previous offenses.
Please keep in mind that bans are cumulative. This means that even if you have never been banned for homophobic language, if you have been previously banned for racist comments, or harassments or anything of the likes, your first offense or continues offense may be higher. This applies to sharing IP, having multiple accounts or letting somebody into your account.
2. Hacking of the Hunger Games – We are banning for 7 days automatically if you are fighting yourself in The Hunger Games as a first offense. Ban time will be increased after the 1st offense up until the possibility of a permanent ban. Shooting arrows at yourself will result in a one week red nose and a one week blacklist as a first offense following with a ban after your first offense.
3. Doing other users’ challenges – if we catch you doing this you will receive an automatic ban based off of our previous rules. If you continue then your ban increases up until you face a permanent ban.
4. Proxy servers – there are not many reasons why anybody should be using a proxy server. If it shows up on your IP it is highly suspicious and we will act on it. We go based off of our IP checks and act according to it.
5. More than one account – we have the right to deny you the privilege of having your sibling, loved one or anybody else in your house hold play under your IP. If we see that you have previously been banned for having a multi, logging into other users’ accounts or sharing IP, then we will deny your request. If you have valid evidence that one user has lied about a sibling or loved one please contact us with solid proof.
6. Screen shots – when reporting something please include a full page screen shot through a browser that is not chrome. This is our best way to deal with it. It is not a perfect system but it is the best we can do.
In conclusion, please play fair. It is not fair towards other users who work hard at becoming the best they can be in games only to be dealing with users who cheat, let others do their challenges or find a way around the system. We will especially have no sympathy for users breaking the rules when they have been here for an extended period of time and are fully aware of the rules. We are asking randomize to also look deeper into IP checks dealing with the Hunger Games and cheating in general.
