    For now, you can consider it like a Russian prison tattoo.

    What if someone finds out that some other guy has multi accounts?
    There is a software that allows us to change our address called the "HotSpot Shield" or summat.These kind of haxxor are hard to be caught I think.

    If someone has many accounts they will be merged I think.
    Not sure how the catch people doing it though, I'm told using a VPN only works to fool a system but not a person who knows what he's doing will find the real IP.

    Typically we just ban multi accounts as far as I know, punishing the MAIN one (usually the first one that came to exist). The IP check method is not reliable because you could as well access certain accounts from certain places, or you could have friends log into their account from your computer, it is just something to consider.

    All this being said, if you go through trouble to use proxies just to multiaccount here... I'd say the staff would be more so flattered (but if found out, you'll still get punished).

    There are excuses for multi accounts AFAIR. If each person own different acc, they will not be punished.

    Requires AC tho.

    Could sincere repentance and good deeds for the Hive community, help remove it ? Everyone should be encouraged to wise up and grow up. This implies being able to leave his/her past behind at some point.

    ...in which case laser tattoo removal might be considered. :wink:

    Well, the issue is that what we're referring to isn't anything. If it's a warning, then it has no impact on you whatsoever. If it's an expired infraction, it has no impact on you whatsoever. If it is an infraction, then these rules come into play. It is extremely rare that a neverending infraction will be given without a sufficient reason.

    So these things are just in your UserCP at the moment. This will potentially be changed for Hive2.

    Depends...

    Warnings and infractions are designed to have some kind of psychological impact. It is *necessarily* something, be it expired or not, be it tangible or not.

    The color red should not remain forever, even (especially ?) in the privacy of a UserCP. It should not feel like some kind of scarlet letter.

    just a strange question to through out there.

    is there a place on the hive where you can publish fan fictions about warcraft?

    I see on fanfiction. com there are atleast 60 fan fictions about warcraft with nearly no one reading them. I feel hive would appreciate them more and as a minor benefit increase traffic to the hive.

    ok slight mistake, it's actually 60 000 different fan fictions just for warcraft.

    Guys, this thread is not Site Discussion, and not Staff Contact.
    This thread is strictly specified to general staff related questions: "e.g. site policies, site rules, and site management."

    Some of us do. It's not required, obviously. It's just easier to decide whose life to make radically more difficult in real time chat than it is via forum post (although you don't gain post-points on skype).

    Importantly, we also voice chat on our Discord server. You guys should check it out, it's pretty cool on there.
