Hello, community!I was reading through the wiki the other day and noticed a page that I found confusing- it was the page about our Empire's derelict timer. I didn't quite understand this page, so I've decided to write everyone a guide as to what happens.Section one: Derelict StatusWhen a player goes derelict, it means that he or she has not logged on for x amount of days. The Empire runs on a timer to track a player's derelict status. If a player joined 5 or less days ago, their derelict timer is at 5 days. If they don't join back after five days, they will have the risk of losing their residence.If a player has joined from 6-10 days ago, their derelict timer is extended to 15 days. If a player is over 30 days old, their timer is 30 days long.What happens when a player goes derelict?When a player goes derelict, they be at risk of losing their residence to another player- either overclaimed or given to a new player. The Empire wants enough space on all SMPs for people to be able to choose what SMP they wish to have a residence out.However, a player WILL NOT lose:Belongs in a player vaultHorses in a player stableVault/Stable countRupee balanceLocked chests in the wild (unless requested by another player)How do I prevent going derelict if I don't think that I can get on for a long period of time?There are multiple ways to prevent yourself from going derelict. Most have time to get on at least once in a month. You can:Purchase permanent derelict voucher- LinkYou will never go derelict again, all of your belongings are safe and sound Purchase supporter upgrade- LinkYour derelict status will be protected until your supporter status runs out. If you have supporter status, you can use the link above to check when it will expire. Vote daily- LinkIf you have below 7 votes, one vote will set your derelict status back seven. The cheapest way =)Place protection on your account- LinkIf you know you are going to be away for a long time, and you are worried you may not have internet access to either vote or log on, you can have protection placed on your account. Contact the Community Manager to have this figured out.Section two: BansOn the Empire, there are two types of bans: Temporary and permanent. Temporary bans are short-term bans, though some can last up to a month. Ban reasons can vary a lot. There is no specific list of things that a player is banned for. Permanent bans are long-term bans. When a player is permanently banned, they lose all of their things. One person even described, "It's like starting all over again." Rupees, residences, everything, *poof*.There is one way to get out of being banned- Appealing to prove that you are worthy to return to the Empire- LinkI hope that this guide helped you all. Any suggestions to add to this thread, as well as other guide suggestions can be PM'd to me- pm.emc.gs/_cTJ_.
