Password stealing is when someone tries to talk you into telling them your
password, or tries to hack your character by guessing at the password
repeatedly. It is important that you do not give out your password to
anyone! If they know your password, they can take your character.
A 'password check' is when a player pretends to be an admin and tries to
get you to expose your password. Here is an example of a player trying
to scam people with a very stupid 'password check':
------------ EXAMPLE ------------
Devstore gossips, 'ok guys, we are doing a pwd check'
Devstore gossips, 'please type 'gossip echo pwd check your login name and pwd.'
Devstore gossips, 'please note if you dont type echo, your pwd will be passed everyone to gossip'
Devstore gossips, 'so be syure to type 'gossip echo''
---------- END EXAMPLE ----------
This is illegal and you can be deleted for doing this. It is like
yelling 'fire' in a crowded theater. It is not funny or even remotely
See the 'rules' command for more information.
