Having just banned 55 people for AFKing, I feel this announcement needs to be made yet again.
Flat out: AFKing is a BANNABLE OFFENSE. It is an exploit and exploiting incurs the following punishments - 7 day ban for 1st offense, PERMANENT for 2nd offense.
If you are caught AFKing or exploiting in ANY WAY, you will be banned for a week or even permanently banned if you have a prior history.
It's not worth it to get caught, get banned for a week and also miss out on getting paid out for the playtime (because, on top of getting banned for a week, we will also disqualify you from getting paid out). Play your hours legitimately and fairly! It's not that hard, folks.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
