Wikipedia wrote:A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.

VPN often used for people working from home to have access to company files. I use one for such, but there are some non-work uses within the house as well.

No, I certainly don't use one for FT though!

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network
it works by a remote server which gives you a random IP address and could potentially show you logging in from Timbuctu rather than from Reduce Speed, Kansas, then next login from Outer Mongolia

Lol. I don't need a VPN for that. My net provider uses a rotating (dynamic) IP system that does it automatically, whether i want it to or not. As I recall, it caused some fuss in the past with my own and another player's accounts overlapping. Since then, I have used a VPN on occasion when visiting "Kansas", as you put it, but not for any nefarious purposes. If using a VPN can really cause so many issues, I will PM you with a small bit of info that will be a task in itself, but may help.

Sharing Accounts

Sharing accounts has been an issue between us these years, and I've been in one. But it doesn't sound fair to jail a guy who shares his account with his siblings/best friends. Maybe it's against game rules but it's annoying to get your account jailed on this moment you get caught.

A person is able to make his own decision. So I thought you'd do the jailing (Punishment) in a different way.

Scenario

*Person shares account

*Account is now used by 2 different people in different IP Address/Same

*Account get shared in an enormous way/Both users of the account make problems

*Account gets jailed/Accounts gets jailed.


Maybe you used it in the past. Still don't understand you thought it was a bad idea. Most of the players got jailed either from "get shared in an enormous way/Both users of the account make problems"

And it worked perfectly. BUT, if an account gets shared by More Than 2 Players OR Makes a lot of problems, I think it's time to get it jailed.

And Thanks <3

I disagree and think any sharing should result in jailing. If someone grinds a character and lets even a close friend or family member grind while at work/school that's an unfair advantage. It's no different from sharing with someone else halfway across the globe that you've never met.

Sharing accounts with anyone is unfair no matter who it is. It gives one account an unfair advantage over others that don't share.
