Quote from: Pariah on December 02, 2023, 12:08:14 PMSpells I don't know what is up with that one.But the contact one is one I bugged myself. If you were in combat with say a scrab, and you type Contact Pariah and I was online it would say "Not in combat" but if I was offline you'd get the normal fail message.So if you were looking for Pariah and wanted to see if he was online, you just had to get into a round or two of combat and type contact pariah to know if I was playing or logged off based on the way the code treated it.
Quote from: Kavrick on December 02, 2023, 02:07:58 PMI like removing the ability to meta-game using contact. But this will compound the issue with there being no mechanics in place to find people to interact with. I still think the game really needs an opt-in who list to help people with this issue.

Quote from: Aesira on December 02, 2023, 06:17:39 PMI prefer not to have discussions about how and why things like this have changed. It's not to be secretive. I don't feel that discussing code nuance is a good use of my time.
Quote from: Pariah on December 02, 2023, 08:53:04 PMI think she was basically saying while talking about bugs that don't exist anymore isn't against the rules, she doesn't prefer we talk about code like that. At least that's how I took it.
