7. Account Sharing

 

An account should be used by one person only. There are no cases or circumstances where another person is allowed to log into on your account. This goes for all types of accounts whether it is a level 3 scout for the wilderness, a shared account people used to Teleblock other players, or an account you would share with a friend. There is absolutely zero tolerance for account sharing in any way, shape, or form and people will be punished with a 48-hour ban, followed by a Permanent ban for both parties.

 

  • a. Any attempt to give an account away will not be tolerated on Alora. Offenders will receive a Permanent ban on the account being given away. 

 

 • b. Any form of services or progress made on a shared account (ex. Inferno Cape service, XP gained, PVMing or PKing) is strictly prohibited and will result in a Permanent ban for both parties.

 

 

Brief explanation: We acknowledge that Account Sharing is allowed in Old School Runescape. While we're not going to stop enforcing the rule, we are however reducing the bans on First Offenders who may be ignorant of the rule. Do keep in mind that we will continue to enforce the rules on those who attempt to gain an unfair advantage over other players via Account Sharing.

I have decided to interview our lovely dyslexic Administrator @hsoJ and the best PVMer in the game's history: @ragragrag46 ! I hope you enjoy hearing what they had to say.  ^_^ 

 

 

Greetings, @hsoJ .

 

 

King purple : What is your best memory on Alora ?

 

hsoJ: The best memory that I have that came from Alora was probably meeting Lowkey or Horror irl. (No homo)

 

 

King purple: In one sentence, how would you sum up the internet?

 

hsoJ: A wonder and forgiving place, Kinda like 4chan.

 

 

King purple: Who is a celebrity you admire and why?

 

hsoJ: I'd probably answer with this... Eminem. Because he's the goat and thats relatable.

 

 

King purple: How do you manage to get the same number of staff reports as you have forum awards? Whats the key to keep this balance? 

 

hsoJ: Honestly, its a grind. I try to be the best at everything I do. The record holder is at an unrealistically reachable amount as he was.. yeah. But, I keep balance by working hard and banning my way to the top. I will get there one day!!!!

 

 

King purple: Who was (or still is) your celebrity crush?

 

hsoJ: MADASFUK or ragragrag46. Next question.

 

 

King purple: What is your secret talent most people don't know about?

 

hsoJ: I am double jointed in all of my fingers?

 

 

King purple: What is your favourite pass-time outside of slaving on Alora?

 

hsoJ: Screaming at sports on my television set while being slightly inebriated with friends.

 

 

King purple: What is the most recent thing you've lied about?

 

hsoJ: I voted Not Hellish for best something on the community awards... :/

 

 

hsoJ: I just want to thank you for doing the newspaper this month so there was a 0% chance I would have to. Also, I will remember to unlike the "giveaway" post you use to choose the interviews next time instead of forgetting and ending up where we are now. I hate you.

 

King purple: Thank you sir....

 

____________________________________

 

Next on our list is ragragrag46!

 

 

Greetings, @ragragrag46 .

 

 

King purple: Which is your favorite Quote?

 

ragragrag46: "Get rich or die trying", I like it because it represents PKers in any game. They take risks to make bank and if they fail its all gone.

 

 

King purple: What is your favorite genre of music?

 

ragragrag46: To be honest it depends on what I am doing. Working out probably techno, but, when slapping ironmen I'll listen to Classic, because the PM's I get afterwards makes me want to relax.  :D

 

 

King purple: What is your relationship with ironmen at the moment ?

 

ragragrag46: Tough question, I like some ironmen because they don't cry after they die in the wilderness, they know it is a dangerous zone. And no matter how many times They tell me " 0 risk sad F***** PKer" I will still hit you, so I'd say I'm alright with some Ironmen.

 

 

King purple: Who would you let punch you directly in the face ?

 

ragragrag46: This one is easy, Inferno, because he is a bald 5'5 Ankou. (I've known him irl for like 18 years).

 

 

King purple: What got you into PVMing, since you are mainly a PKer?

 

ragragrag46: To be honest I have never hated pvming, it is fine and fun to do sometimes but I can't see myself logging in to this game to mainly pvm. I get more joy of killing people in wilderness because it takes skill to switch gear + prayers. Raids are good money tho. Ever since I got my scythe after a horrible grind, doing certain bosses is chill and easy so I tought why not.

 

 

King purple: What is your favorite thing about Alora?

 

ragragrag46: Absolutely the yell where I've gotten my mutes also. It winds up the game if you are bored, and, just overall good content. People take things too seriously and it makes it even better.

 

 

King purple: What is your favorite Pass-time outside of Alora?

 

ragragrag46: Working out and playing Soccer with my friends.

 

 

King purple: What is your biggest fear? 

 

ragragrag46: That one day I get so bored I might consider making an ironman.

 

Thank you for answering these questions, ragragrag46 !
