    ..while you are logged in?

    Just a little worried (paranoid?) Just finished doing a tok spawn with a group of people, and I had:

    ONLINE
    ONLINE

    MA ONLINE
    MA ONLINE
    MA ONLINE
    (several more)

    appear in my journal - apparently nobody else saw it in theirs, and "Ma" is a character of mine (which may be coincidence) so it had me a little nervous ;)

    Just never saw such a thing before =)

    That would freak me out a bit too, especially if I had a character by that name!

    If this happened you would get automatically disconnected. I used to get paranoid a lot when I got unexplained disconnections without any lag building up to them.

    do you remember the old global messages we used to get? for me, I think they were in red, I know it was a color that I don't normally use.... were they like that?

    just wondering if one of the new EMs hit a wrong key or something :)

    Mine was actually the same colour as my "party" messages, but I wasn't in a party at the time - my second thought after the paranoia eased a little was EM's too - so I went to see if he was in his new house, but wasnt =) I thought gloabl message too, but nobody else there saw it

    And thanks Hemisphere =)

    When someone logs in you get kicked off.

    I wouldn't be worried unless my char isn't where I left him.

    Dutty is Quite correct.... "if" someone logged into or hacked into your account while you were playing it....... YOU would be immediately logged out.... If it happened while you were on another account then your character may not be where you left them.....

    Maybe the game is just very enthusiastic about you being online?

    lol. But anyways, as said previously already, if someone logs into your account while you are on, you get booted. I tried logging into two characters on my one account once when I first started playing, so I know this for sure ;)

    you lose connection to your account if someone else logs in, which can lead to some funny situations if people share accounts and don't tell when they log in and kick each other out.
