    By me, so don't go slagging Kelmo
    Here's why.
    Naming someone as a scripter is a personal attack and not allowed.
    A picture of someone dead in Heartwood merely proves you killed someone in Heartwood. I've died there myself. The quest gump obscures much of the screen, making it hard to see danger coming. I've more to say but I have to go afk a minute.

    If you want to prove you killed someone in Heartwood, sure. If you want to claim that someone was a scripter, no.

    I'll give you an example of why that rule exists, and existed before the example took place, but sadly when Europa board was without an active moderator.
    Some years ago, before I became Stratics staff, I was denounced on Europa board not only as a scripter, but also a hypocrite and a liar, because I have always spoken against cheating and scripting.
    There was 'proof' in the form of a character named 'Petra Fyde' by an obvious scripter house with chests on the steps etc.
    Was it me? Heck no! my Petra Fyde is a swordswoman and always has been, and while people who actually knew me spoke up for me, many others were perfectly willing to believe it and pillary me on the boards.

    i understand where your coming from but this unnamed gentleman is a self professed scripter and the whole shard knows it but we shall keep him "Nameless"....
    Sorry for the missunderstanding.

    :) Most people can't understand how hurt I was by that incident. I had a reputation as an honest and trustworthy player which meant a lot to me, I was seeing it be destroyed, and there was no moderator around to stop the attack. I did, eventually, find out who made that scripter char. He thought it was a tremendous joke.
    I'm sure you remember, too, incidents at Brit Forge where scammers made duplicates of trusted smiths to steal weapons and armour, leading to the real smiths being called out on boards as scammers.

    I'm sure if the exploits of said 'nameless' gentleman become sufficiently widely known that the results of his labours are either stolen by thieves or looted from his dead body he will eventually come to realise that scripting on Siege is a bad idea.

    On a lighter note, I'll tell you how I came to die in there.
    I had promised, on these boards, to attempt to obtain a certain smith recipe for a regular poster. I therefore set out with loaded beetle to keep that promise. Shortly afterward a stealthing character with homicidal intentions appeared at my side and I made my way in greyscale to the healer. Once rezed I stopped to check the boards before returning for my beetle. I found I had a private message from the poster I was helping. It said 'Can you tell me your character name so that I don't kill you'. I sent back the reply 'You just did :D'.
    He was kind enough to return my kit and apologise, and yes, I did get him the recipe that I'd promised.
