Since I have heard that there is a certain agency here at Sleuthsville that is signing on brand new characters for the sole purpose of joining other agencies to come in and steal four expensive pieces of equipment, I have setforth a brand new rule in our agency to check out newbies before bringing them in, and this is the new rules made at LONE WOLF DETECTIVE AGENCY, as follows, to-wit:
The agent trying to join must send me an email by using their real email that they sign on with to play Sleuth here, and to verify that they are who they say their character is, they must give me the following information:
1) Character name
2) Time Zone-State or Country
3) First Initial and last name
4) Contact (Banker, Shoe Maker, Barber, or Tailor)
5) Experience points, and skills
6) What they do for a living
7) What time of the day they will be signing on.
And anyother information that will help, that way, if there was a problem with this person, we can give the info to Ben and/or Sunny, so he can follow-up on our request, to take care of the problem at hand. I feel, if the person is honest and their intentions are straightforward, then they will not mind to give the information requested in order to join an agency that will protect them in return. I hope others will consider what we've decided to do.
I just have to say, that DaRu, you really kick ass! Jstkdn and I really appreciate your support in this and these ideas are ones that I think we should begin to implement at Demons Deeds. It's such a shame that in a game where we PAY to subscribe, and therefore obviously care about and enjoy playing, we need to have these discussions. The unfortunate fact is that there really are few fool-proof ways of protecting our investments in this game. However, I hope that what's happened to us with the past two (actually three) bad apples has served to make us more careful.
Again, thanks and, as directors, we should all be sticking together to dissuade thieves from joining our agencies.
