If any mod would please sticky this, it would be nice.

Post here if you found someone who let his or her popup sit for more than 15 metric minutes. Post the log and a link to the log so that someone else can easily confirm it. I or a mod will then edit the date (I think day will be enough) into this post so people can easily see who all used up their popup, and when they get a new freebie. I'd suggest every Game Admin, Viceroy, Mod or IRC Admin can confirm a "sighting". If you aren't one of the above, contact one and ask them to post a confirmation here, to avoid the transgression falling off the log before an admin can see it.

Is going without a answering a popup one time in one day considered an offense?  Or do there need to be multiple occasions on the same log?  Just wondering..

Rage, I'd assume that yes, the freebie counts for the day (otherwise you could use up all your 5 strikes within an hour). Goon has the last word though.

Tom, I'd assume that the "one freebie a month" thing is person-specific: if you get caught on the 31st, and then again on the 1st, I doubt that will count as two freebies. Instead, I would expect you to get another freebie 30 days after you get caught the last time.

And here is farmboy going for number #2, making him the first to test the new anti afk macroing laws!

(338-01-9) 4:31:43      Farmboy proved he was at his computer by answering his Annoying PopUp!
(338-01-9) 3:93:71      Farmboy got a server wide popup! FUN! (Odds: 100%)

Nah, you get fucked over because you had your MACRO running when you were afk. Nice try, that was fixed. Idle and refresh doesn't cause serverwide popups.

Wow, that's pretty bad. Why wouldn't you behave yourself, at least until you were off probation?

That's a lie. Refreshes don't make you get popups. You were afk macroing some silent skill such as hackling, and thought you could get away with it because it normally doesn't have popups.

I think hackling gives popups, doesn't it? I could swear I've gotten several of them.

But silent popups: they don't show up in your logs. Only once you answer them, at which point nobody can tell whether it took you a second or an hour.

The Viceroys probably already figured this out but...

If Farmboy is found guilty of AFK macroing twice in a month, per 14.2.4 the punishment is xp removal from the skill he was macroing at the time (presumably the skill being macroed during the 2nd offense) and item removal related to that skill. If no one knows what skill that was, what then? Do admins have logs that show what he was doing, even if it was silent?
