    But you was there, so how could you be afk then? :confused2: If you have 2 Screens and you look on the second one but do on the first one Gates what is wrong with that? I guess you can't do both at the same time ... so have you done both at the same time? If then he was right, if not then ... args i am confused now. :eek:

    Advisors usually try to talk to the person for about 5 minutes asking them things like "are you there" "what are you doing" etc. If the person still doesn't answer they put them in jail for doing stuff afk. It mainly applies to things like training a skill, mining, gating to vendors and stuff like that. What the advisor told you is correct, that has become part of their job.

    I was in Luna on chessy casting evil omen on my horse over and over for about 10 minutes..no attempt at communication was made..I was just brought to Buc's scripting room. The advisor then said oh nice to see you attending good day..I was like ok cool! Now I get to use one of the stupid moongates and run all the way back to the bank since I was on a new character with no runes. I WANT HIM FIRED!! I had to actually walk somewhere!!! UNACCEPTABLE! Long story short (macro in your house) or somewhere hidden.

    Just so you're aware of what an Advisor can or cannot do. I was unaware that they had the ability to put you in jail, maybe more clarification would be nice :)

    All it states in that announcement:

    Advisors can move monsters that spawn out of reach, move corpses that die in out of reach locations, help new and returning players with information about the game that they don’t know or might have forgotten, and direct players to information sites that might be helpful.

    Maybe they have gotten more powers over time but there has been no announcement made as such.

    As far as I know, it has not been published anywhere. I learned about it by asking an Advisor on Atlantic after I watched them do what I described asking the person if they were there and all that. When the person didn't respond the Advisor said something along the lines of "last chance to respond before I put you in jail" and when the person still did not respond, they went poof. When I asked them about it the Advisor explained that since GM's are too busy lately to look for people doing things afk the Advisors were given permission to do it.

    I'm not sure how it works on other shards, but I have seen 2 different Atlantic Advisors remove people from Luna bank for afk training skills in the last couple weeks.

    an advisor pulled my macroing character to a graveyard and got me killed from the liches and other spawn there. even jail would have been a much safer alternative. if i had high end uninsured items lost when i died from being looted i probably would have quit the game at least for a while.

    If an advisor took you to jail or to a grave yard then email me their names. But yes they are putting people into the Macro box after trying to communicate with players without a response.

    jail
    macro box

    is there a difference?

    i actually think its a grand idea.
    if you cant answer a simple hello asked 5 times you are obviously not attending and we all know the rules about not attending.
    the graveyard is a little harsh, funny, but harsh.
