Hopefully not, but at this point in time, nothing is certain. Since the items were distributed, it makes the matter that much worse. It will be difficult to track where the items went…
I think I got a chance to talk to you on Chatango, but once again we apologize for the inconvenience, but welcome to PMU, I hope you will have some fun on the forums and Chatango until the server is back up! ^^
A ban is supposed to be a consequence/punishment for an action that was committed, reinforcing the fact that it is against the rules. Its supposed to allow the person breaking the rules to think upon what they did, and hopefully be reformed by the time of their return. If the person is not ready by that point, their ban might be extended, made indefinite, or an alternate form of punishment might be used.
As for why glitch abusing is bad, there are a couple big reasons. It doesn’t matter what one’s intentions behind it were, glitch abusing is against the rules and is a bannable offense.
[ul][li]Glitch abusing break the economy. Handing out money and other items, will depreciate the value of everything. Things will cost more and things won’t be as rare anymore. [/li] One may believe that they are doing someone a favor by handing them 500k, but in reality, they won’t think of money as very important anymore. As for others, it is unfair for them.
[li]It makes the game’s goals less interesting.[/li]People work for items, people work for money. If they are just handed money/items, especially in PMU, they wont have that as a goal anymore. Making the game more boring.[/ul]
There are of course more reasons, but that’s what I have off the top of my head.
Anyways, this is a topic concerning the server being offline. Offtopic posts will likely be deleted, I just wanted that to be read by anyone who may have thought Glitch Abusing was okay.
If you have offtopic questions concerning the glitch, feel free to pm me or another staff member.
