Every day I see people begging for rupees and items in town chat. I used to just ask them to stop and /report if they persisted. However, it's just getting out of hand. It's no longer a small minority of online players that are doing it. It's pretty much half of the server. I'm even seen diamond supporters doing it. It's not just town chat. I've been repeatedly /telled, asking for my rupees, items and on occasions my reses. I pay for diamond so I should get the perks. I don't think any random gold/diamond supporter that you PM will ever give you one of their reses. And quite frankly I think it's rude to ask. Actually, I think begging is rude in general. To the beggars: Stop begging. When you first join the Empire you're asked to read and acknowledge the guide. In the guide are 10 commandments (rules). Here is a reminder of the ninth one: Thou Shalt Not Be a Pain In The Chat Do not beg for items or residence permissions, and do not expect the staff or other players to answer all your questions; do not be demanding; do not ask to become a moderator, do not ask to be teleported, and do not advertise other servers in the chat. If you come on the server just to advertize another server you will be banned permanently without warning. See that bit in big, orange, bold, underlined writing? It says not to beg. By begging you are effectively breaking the rules which can be punished by the staff in a way that they see fit. Also, it's just plain rude and annoying to everyone else. We know you want rupees but you know all of those top players? They earned the right to be there; they didn't beg for it. Go to the wild and sell what you find or get a job. It's not that hard. What I consider begging: Please can I have some rupees? AHHHHH!!!! I'M POOOORR!!!!! Give me muniez Asking for 'donations in chat'. It's the same thing as begging. Hinting that they need money. Eg: 'I only have 100r...' To everyone else: Thanks for not being a pain in chat. Remember that the staff wont know someone's begging unless they're reported. Remember: warn, /report, /ignore; there's always the off-chance they don't mean to break the rules so it's worth giving them a chance to stop. If they persist then make sure they're reported so the mods can deal with them.
