Please update this topic with any related information about alt abuse situations discussed on the forum, provide just the links to avoid derailing the discussion.

I will start with this one. I put my comments there

(Udgards policy for the crafters on item creation, details how item creation that involves alts will be handled)

Regarding shared tools and same IP: http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/10750-a-little-question-regarding-tools-and-people-with-the-same-ip/

The purpose of this topic is to centralise everything about what means and what doesn't mean alt abuse for you and for me (because my opinion are clearly different from those of the majority). As a conclusion to this topic i will formulate a more compact rule and try to enforce it through interface restrictions so nobody will have doubts about it.

MD "rules" are increasingly scattered and with major concept changes they will become confusing even for the vets. This needs to be solved in stage 10, because stage 11 will brings its own sort of chaos.

Note: mods pls update the above list with links posted below, if the link is indeed relevant to the subject. Thank you.

Current ruling with regards to trading items

Ann. 1999 - [2011-08-23 06:25:02 - Stage 11]
No more item transfers between potential alts
Items can no longer be transfered between what MD considers to be "alts". I say it this way because not all accounts restricted by the altchecker are alts, some are different people accessing md from same network, others are accounts "borrowed" for active days keeping to friends (md tags them as alts then) others are not even that. This might be damaging for people that live in same place and can no longer exchange items in md, but the benefits of restricting alts from item/resources transfer are far more important. This should slow down (at least a bit) potential future abuses related to the shared tools acquiring and resource hoarding.
