Let me clarify some things. That seem to be confusing or miscommunicated by other admin. No offense other admin, but I'm just going to clear this up.
1. You can indeed grapple someone who is idle and take them to a safe place. We do not want people treating 'grapple' like it's a 'joke'. It's not three stoogies time and you grapple your friend for the yuck yucks, it can definitely be a violent act, especially during combat and we want players to see it as such. That does not prevent you from helping a friend. If your friend was staring at a war at a bar in real life you wouldn't just leave them there. If a stranger was staring at a bar in real life, you might leave them there, and in that case it's your decision if you wanna help get them to a safe place.
2. We are still figuring out where the disconnect cooldown fits into the game, that's why we haven't announced any major policy changes just yet. We want to see if/what problems it solves. Once we've seen it doing it's job for a bit and gotten some feedback, we will announce policy changes regarding sleepers.
It's my intention that after an hour, people should be free game. This leads me to my third point.
3. YOU are responsible for your connection to the game, in the same way you are responsible for your actions on the game. There is very little way for the admin, let alone another player, to know you are disconnected because of internet trouble, or disconnected because your internet or power went out. The disconnect timer is a way for us to let players know, via code, if they are OK to rob someone they find. It's up to YOU to get back on the game and get somewhere safe if you lose power or internet. In a day where so many people have cell phones, this shouldn't be the most difficult thing ever.
If you fall asleep at the keyboard, that's also on you. If you're then attacked or robbed, you need to take responsibility for going to sleep IRL when you need to. If there is an emergency, a real emergency, you can 'xhelp house is on fire please put me in the void', much as I did when my house was on fire.
In the end though, you are responsible for your character and their safety. We have taken measures to help ensure your safety during internet and power hiccups, but it is YOUR responsibility, and no other players. If something bad happens to your character, as much as that sucks, you gotta accept it and move forward.
Any other questions?
