Effective date: 12th May 2009

Related Questions

Below are some related questions which may help you to further understand and follow this rule:


1. Why can't I ask for someone else's password?

This rule is in place to protect our players' accounts. Even if you genuinely only wanted to 'borrow' their account we obviously can't tell the difference between this and a malicious person stealing accounts. Asking other players for their password will be treated VERY seriously.

2. What if I try to get someone else's password but don't succeed? Have I still broken the rule?

Yes, you have still broken the rule - even if you aren't successful this will almost certainly result in a serious offence being placed on your account. You shouldn't even be trying to get someone else's password!

3. What if I ask in a different language?

The rules apply equally to all languages, therefore you will still be breaking the game rules.

4. Someone has asked me for my bank PIN or other security information such as the answers to my recovery questions. Is it all right if I tell them?

Asking for someone's bank PIN or other security information is just as serious as asking for an account password. It allows other players access to your bank space. Under no circumstances should you tell another player your password, PIN number or any other personal details of your account.

5. What does 'item scam' mean?

To 'item scam' means to cheat another player during a trade. Lying to other players for your own personal gain is not in the spirit of our games and will not be tolerated.

6. Is it a scam to claim an item is rare when it isn't?

Yes.

7. Is it a scam to switch items at the last second before pressing accept, and hoping the other player won't notice?

Yes.
