Because many people registered multiple accounts in this forum (perhaps as a way to circumvent warning points), we have decided to stop auto-acceptance of forum account registration. As best as we could, we will check applications for forum membership and if you have already been registered, new applications from you will not be validated.

 

If you wished for quick approval, please post your forum name + request for validation at the Playtrickster Facebook group  https://www.facebook...ps/officialRTO/.

 

You may also post your request to Playtrickster official Facebook https://www.facebook...ricksterforever.

 

Thank you.

Hello Aran, will older accounts need to be validated as well? If so, would there be* another method besides facebook to send the mods the informatiou regarding the accounts? (as for me, I do not have a facebook account, which end up kind of pushing me back)

Once you have an account validated, no other accounts need to be validated anymore. Regarding Facebook as the means for communication, this community uses Facebook a lot. There's no other network or media we used other than Facebook and forum.

We give out warning points because people don't like to listen and behave.  <_<

--Some of my friends in game they think it is little complicated to register the forum, and then they give up registering forum account.

--Maybe we can link the game account with the forum account together(one forum account can only link with one forum account,so this will also decrease multiple same forum accounts), thats make player easier to access the forum and not creat forum account easily( make sure every1 can access the forum easily) and staff can manage accounts easier.

--This rule may just restrict people communicate in the forum and make them feel not good about communication, and is similar to lock-up the forum.

--The rule is good for forum member to participate and manage the forum, but maybe some1 dont have facebook, its hard for them to join in the forum. And this may not good to attract new players to come to play. 

--The private server rTO is almost same as the 'official ' server now,

Communication is very important for the game( Aran already did good job reply every thread and help members to solve their problem with patience)

And whithout this restriction(validating account), the rTO can advertise more, because more people will join in the forum and spread information of the forum. 

--why we give such restrication to players to communicate?

If some1 spam in the forum, manager can ban the IP.

 

Have a good day~

1. Validation is needed because if there is no validation, the forum will be overrun with spam advertising products from shoes to clothes to porn. We have faced this problem in the past when validation is automatic.

 

2. I don't know if it is possible to link forum to game accounts. Even TO forum in ggftw is not linked to the official TO game.

 

3. IP ban is quite limited in term of usage because there are many players who use VPN (virtual private network), therefore their IP keeps changing. In the official TO, VPN usage was banned; players whose IP changed were banned from playing. In rTO, we don't ban players for using VPN.  

 

4. We do IP ban in the forum for spammers and for players who accumulate 15 warning points. If they used VPN, and if their VPN happens to be the same as some players' VPN, then those players will also no longer be able to access the forum.

 

5. For validation, we check for name, email & IP. We don't want forum members to have the same name. And if we found 2 or more members using the same email or IP, we will validate only the first one registered.

 

So, I want players to take note of this: If there are more than just you residing in your house who also play this game and want to register in the forum as well (say a brother, sister, husband, wife, child), please PM me if their forum accounts are not validated. Inform me who they are in relation to you. Thank you.

You are already a member of the forum. Your newbie status is because you have not posted a lot. Your title will change based on number of posts you have made.
