    So today I'm sitting at Brit bank in TRAM doing nothing but watching a few guys have a pissing contest when suddenly I get the message "Guards can now be called on you". A few seconds later I get the message "Guards can no longer be called on you". Odd. Definitely NOT player text.
    A few seconds later, the same messages again, while still doing NOTHING. I run out of town when I get the messages AGAIN, seemingly stuck in a loop of "Guards can now be called on you" and "Guards can no longer be called on you" over and over again.
    I logged out then back in so wtf did this pub break??

    Perhaps you crafted a trapped chest that is being used for nefarious purposes elsewhere? :D

    (They may have changed this mechanic long ago, no idea)

    The criminal timer only lasting a few seconds sounds like you're not getting flagged as a criminal through any normal situation.

    Have you created any trapped chests? (I think those used to, or maybe still do, cause the crafter to get flagged when somebody is damaged by them... but I could be wrong)

    Do you have a pet/summon somewhere that might be attacking things without your knowledge?


    I'd page a GM about it if you can't find the cause on your own. If you get directed to a page that talks about normal criminal activity causing the flag, re-page giving more details (in a calm fashion - an angry request will just make it less likely that you'll get help).
    You might want to send in a bug report and e-mail Jeremy as well with whatever details you have.
     
  10. Have you left any poisoned food laying about?

    I was on my tamer, hadn't left any trapped boxes or poisoned food anywhere (in years), no pets out of the stable except the mare I was riding, no pets attacking anyone. I hadn't been logged on for but a few minutes and hadn't done anything beyond recalling into WBB and sitting there watching a conversation.
    No spells had been cast except for recall, hadn't touched anything except my runebook, hadn't gone into war mode, hadn't done anything.
    Weird.
    Logging out then back in again seemed to have fixed it for the moment tho.

    Will email Jeremy asap.

    invising people over and over when they are not asking to be invised is a form a griefing.
    people that invis others without being asked to do so should be punished.

    Not exactly, the definitions/situations I have read on griefing state the player must ask the person to stop. It is not griefing to invis a player bank sitting, it isn't even griefing to invis the person sitting there beating on a golem. The KB articles even go so far as to state the person must try to remove themselves from the area before it is considered griefing. So, someone invis you and you ask them to stop and they don't, you walk away and they follow to do it again then yes that is griefing.

    There was a guy that was standing on the turn in guy so someone invised him. He said if they did it again he was going to call a gm. Wouldn't standing on the turn in guy be a form of griefing too since it made it harder to turn in your stuff?
