Pfft whats point of blocking if they delete the charachters, my blocklist would be filled within a few days at the rate they are making new characters.
2nd; its not my duty to the GMs job, so I wont report them. idc about them to be honest, and it is not hard to IP ban someone.
New contest: catch a GM banning goldspammers in aven ch1 with a screenshot, I'll give you 1000g.(It will never happen anyway)
Yea, not hard to IP ban someone, however it's very easy to avoid IP bans these days. It's not an effective way of getting rid of spammers to be quite honest. Just 10 years ago, I knew someone who was avoiding IP bans very easily within a day (not on Aeria but another game). And that was 10 years ago, technology advances, and there will be always ways created to get through such protection. To think that an IP ban will do is only being naive.
I help out letting them know of gold spammers also, and report right away. The GM's don't have the man power to have someone sitting there in both servers and just deleting bots. They have other things to take care of, mainly tickets. Personally I think Aeria hosts too many games and don't have enough GM's per game to take care of it but that's another topic and I don't wish to derail the thread.
Yes it may not be your job per say to report bots, but every little bit helps to help make things more bearable then they are currently. Same kind of idea with the world and recycling. It's not your job to pick up other people's litter and mess that they toss on the side of the road, but if you want things to look nice everyone has to contribute a little bit in their own way to make it work.
Offering my 2 cents to the table.
