    Ok in Fel we have ways to deal with scripters (ie OooOOOoo) but in Tram they pretty much get a free ride. But with a little coding they could give Theives the ability to steal resources only (ie wood,leather,ore) and lock it down to these items only (personally think gold would be nice to add as well but could see big headaches trying to implement this).

    The theif would attempt to steal resource and the target char should get a message that a steal attempt is being made if they move their char even 1 step say within 5secs the steal would fail this would allow non scripters to stop the steal but for those that run these auto scripts you should have time to steal their resources before they recall to next location.

    It would breath a little life back into the Theif profession and while it would not deter or stop the scripters it would make life a little harder on them and give those of us that get annoyed with scripters a way to get even.

    :bdh: hehe I can guarantee this idea wont be universally loved but just watch the people who yell the loudest are probably the same ones that would be effected by this change
