Sender: inspector arthur conan doyle Saved: Oct 15, 2005 - 15:10
give me your pass right now!!!

-----------------------------------------------

Wow, when you try to be helpful, this is the thanks you get...lol. Well, I received a messsage from "inspector arthur conan doyle," saying he made a false accusation, because he was given 2 different names of the murderer, so he went with one of the names given and accused the one with a real alibi. So, he sent me the first popup asking why this happened and if I'd explain the game, so I did. I must have sent him a dozen popups explaining the game, but he replied back, "Please give me your password so I can learn the game!" I was shocked by this reponse, so I politely explained why I wouldn't & continued to try & help him, but again, he replied by saying, that's funny & that he read it all, but "He wanted my password, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! Again, I told him I couldn't because it wouldn't help him any better to learn quicker by using my agent, however, the next message I got was "Are you going to give me your password or not?" At this time I was getting a bit distrubed with him, so again I said no way & why, but again he sent the last message above, at which time I blocked him from sending more, & came here to post this. I just couldn't believe someone would demand a password. Now, I'm hoping this is all a joke, & if so, the joke worked..hehe. I'm not mad at this person, and I'd still give any helpful information I can if he needs it. I wish him all the best here, & hope he understands that I wasn't being mean or ugly about not giving my password to an unsubscribbed agent or someone I don't even know whatsoever. I am sure everyone would back me up on this...Wow!:)

Yesterday, while Sleuth was down for repair, I checked out a few game sites & joined a couple of them, by registering & giving personal information required. One site asked for my real name, address, city, state, & zip code, or country if not from the US. I had to give a real email address, gender, married or single, birth date, plus credit card info, if needed to pay subscriptions or buy merchandise, if desired. I created a user name & password, then I read the “Terms & Conditions,“ which I had to agree to in order to submit the registration to join After I checked agree to the terms & conditions, & submitted it, I immediately received a combination of six (6) letters & numbers from them, requesting me to type the letters & numbers in the box, exactly as they were, then submit it. At this time I was told I would receive an email from them within a few minutes, & that I must click on the link provided to activate my account, & start playing the game. But, if I didn’t click on the link to verify it’s me & activate the account, then they would cancel it.

Below I’ve added some of the “Terms & Conditions,“ I had to accept in order to play at one of the game sites, which I thought would be a neat idea for Sleuth to start doing. This would be a way to prevent people from creating several agents and/or accounts, unless another agent is agreed by the Administration only. It would also keep out the trouble makers & probably bring in the serious players. Here are some of the terms I agreed to in order to join one of the game sites, as follows, to-wit:

You are personally responsible for all communications used by you, or any user using your agent or password. In order to make this game a good experience for everyone, it is necessary you agree to all the terms & conditions herein. You can not promote illegal content, or any strong sexual content. You are not allowed to harass, threatened or attack a member because of their race or use harmful, abusive, vulgar languag

PS: I think this has been discussed before, & so I don't know how hard it would be to add it & if a person's personal IP can be tracked to know if it's the same person trying to create several agents, but I would think by making it where you have to verify each time & send it in, that one would know it's the same person rejoining. Oh well, just an idea.(*__*)

oops, I typed this thread at "Microsoft Works Task," then copied it here, & I just noticed when reading back through it that the last paragraphs are missing. Sorry everybody, but I'll try to finish my thoughts.(*_*)

I wish we could just sum up all the fine print, like in order to create an agent one has to first click on a statement:

"I promise I'll try not to be a jerk."

In essence, isn't this all we are asking?

*sigh*

Amen Moonshh! Anyway,( con't ) .....there were several things mentioned in the terms and conditions, but only a few would do..lol, like you said Moonshh. Yesterday, I filled out the Registration form, then had to agree to the terms, then I submitted the Registration, after which I received a combination of six numbers & letters asking me to type them in the box exactally the same then submit same to the game site in order to verify it's me that joining. After this, they told me they were sending me an email, with a link to click on so I could verify again it's me, & to activate my account and start playing the game. When I opened my email I found this: "Welcome DaRu2u." Thank you for joining one of the best games on the internet. Please click on the link provided. This will verify you're the one who joined plus activate your account and you can start playing and enjoy the game. The email was entitled "Account Confirmation." I think this would be great if Sleuth members done this. It would discourage trouble makers and incourage serious players to join. I don't know how complicated it would be to add all this, but if it can be done it might be helpful.

I personally like the no strings attached way of joining sleuth. I don't join those complicated games-do they need that infor? Who is getting it? and who are the selling it to?

I think till now we've been handeling ok with the jerks and the stupids. I dont think there is a need to complicate registration or any need to panic. This people will continue to surface once in a while. It makes life intresting ;) then someone will report them or the mods will delete them and ben will ban their IP.
It will be quiet for a while, till a new one come.

Sleuth is one of the safest and nicest internet communities I ever saw. I dont think we need to change anything about that.
