Proposed: Scripting Laws
Message 8 on ShadowMUD LAW DocketI believe it is well time to define an absolute law on scripting.
Proposal: Scripting Laws
1) If you are not at your keyboard, in the active mud window, your character should be doing nothing.
[This includes attacking monsters, gathering treasure, playing casino games or activating class abilities.]
2) Triggers and limited scripts are fine to help your character do menial tasks while you are active in the mud window and at the keyboard.
[If you want to define a complex script to kill a monster 30 different ways while you are active, there shouldnt be a problem with it. But, I think there is an issue (or should be an issue) when a mudclient becomes a player here instead of a person.]
Suggested punishments: Warnings for first offenses, removal of rewards from scripting are possible, continually offenses may require more stern punishments.
