Admins et al: Is this cheating or just evil??? (in General)
February 11 2005 5:40 PM EST
I was just wondering if the following strategy would be grounds for banning or just considered extremely poor style. Note that this is just a thought and I don't actually plan on doing it...
If one camper were to transfer 14000 arrows and 10 pieces of junk armor into another camper's inventory to fill his quota, would that be cheating? As far as I know, there are no rules against xfering items to others accounts.
Just an interesting scenario to ponder about.
It's a little cheap but other than that, I haven't seen anything to say that it's banned.

When Jon talks about those with naturally devious minds...

Assuming the "victim" wasn't an Idiot, they would probably Thank you for the free cash to sell that junk back to the store.

Assuming you didnt get in trouble for camping the store to get the junk in the first place.
meh. send pebbles, arrows = expensive.

chicken, definitely pebbles, whips, and wooden shields

Just occurred to me that if LOAN all the items, the recipient wouldn't be able to get rid of it.
no, but he could just move it around to other characters. Plus I'm fairly certain that repeated instances could be classified as harrassment.

the 'victim' could just sell them back to store and make a nice 'profit' out of them...
wish someone would do it to me once in a while :P

I dont think you can sell something that is loaned to you.

If there was no public record of a loan agreement and the camper who received the "loaned" items complained then I would look on it as foul play.
I'd help the devious/evil camper avoid a similar fate by reducing his own personal stack of camped goodies. I'd send an appropriate amount of equipment (or money) from his character to Central_Bank just to keep him aware that this sort of practice would be frowned upon.

Isn't this on the verge of store farming?

Just to expand on this, what if 175 non campers decided to loan for week a 'few' items to a variety of campers, would that be wrong?
I think the general idea is that acting like a pain won't go over well with the admins. If you make trouble for someone else, don't be surprised if the admins make trouble for you.

Fishead, You can't farm (see here)
stores on CB2 as purchases no longer have anything to do with refreshes.

Jib, items that you've loaned out count toward your own maximum item cap as well.
