 +====== Law: Cheating ======
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Cheating on Dune is highly frowned upon,  and is the fastest way to reach   
 +  the esteemed level of BANISHMENT. Levels of punishment ​ come  in  various ​  
 +  forms. ​ If something gives you great amounts of exp, gexp, or money in no   
 +  time at all, it is probably an abuse and therefore a cheat! Don't do it!    ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Cheating on Dune takes on many forms, but is not limited to:                ​
 +  1) Abusing bugs for money and experience. ​                                  
 +  2) Using in and out combat tactics. ​                                        
 +  3) Abusing any bugs/​workarounds/​loopholes to retain "​unique"​ status items. ​
 +  4) Running scripts or using triggers that cause you to automatically attack ​
 +  monsters. ​ This is a particular pet peeve of the administration'​s,​ and is   
 +  likely to net you a very harsh penalty even on the first offense. ​ Unless ​  
 +  you enter the attack command yourself, it constitutes botting. ​             ​
 +  5) Idling in a room where an aggressive NPC spawns. ​ Because this forces ​   ​
 +  you into a combat while you are more than likely not at the keyboard, it    ​
 +  is against the rules as well.                                               
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Being caught cheating may result in one or more of the following actions, ​  
 +  or something worse, depending on the nature of the infraction: ​             ​
 +  1) Warning. ​ DON'T DO IT AGAIN. ​                                            
 +  2) Loss of stats/​exp/​levels/​quests,​ depending upon  the  situation. ​        
 +  3) Loss of character, and deletion of backups. ​                            
 +  4) And the fun one, SITE  BANISHMENT. ​  ​Not ​ only will you not be able to   
 +  return, you have made everyone from your site unable to login to Dune.      ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  In order to avoid this fate, REPORT ALL BUGS IMMEDIATELY. Failure ​ to  do   
 +  so  will  result ​ in  the label '​cheater'​ being applied to your persona. ​   ​
 +  Those who code are human, so  please report the accidental mistakes. ​ You   
 +  won't regret it.                                                            ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  If you spot someone cheating, please report it.  The wizard staff here will 
 +  take care of the situation. ​ Once caught cheating, do not attempt to plea   
 +  your case.  It is your fault, and you must serve the punishment. ​           ​
 +                                                                              ​
 +  Ignorance is not an excuse. ​                                                
 +                                                                              ​
 +  As this is not a  complete ​ list  of what constitutes '​cheating',​ you are   
 +  reminded that some situations that are not listed ​ in  these  rules  will   
 +  arise. ​  ​As ​ it  is the discretion of the wizards as to what cheating is,   
 +  you are expected to report anything that resembles cheating. ​               ​
 +                                                                              ​
