Its been an exciting day trying to clean up as much as we could resulting from the exploit mentioned in the previous news post. For obvious reasons I will not elaborate on what was done, but a player had seemingly discovered an exploit that allowed them to effectively create items illegitimately.
We will work on closing this exploit, while also monitoring the logs to make sure no one has or will do the same thing going forward. As far as we know, this is the first time this particular exploit has been used, and it required a level of clear intent to achieve it.
As a reminder, taking advantage of any exploit is strictly forbidden and results in a permanent ban.
Items of varying value and quantities were dumped into the Giving Tree and we have completed the process of manually removing the most concerning items. Certain items of less value and certain circumstances were exempted. For example, if you received an item in trade or as a gift, purchased an item in the stall, or already used the item, then in most cases it was left alone.
We feel satisfied that we cleaned up what was necessary and fair.
As of this post you can rest assured that any item you still have that you obtained as a result of the offending player's exploitation is now legitimate for you to do with as you wish.
Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding! Also, I want to give a big thanks to our staff who have worked so diligently!
