Topic: Bug Exploitation by a player

This player using the planetary name uninhabited cannot be attacked after scanning.  He deliberately used a planet name to avoid getting hit. 

Administers - Please change his name.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

In the future, please do not post coords/planet + ruler names. It's better to send an email to them and they will take care of it.

Fixed title smile

I thought it was impossible to use uninhabited as a planet name, but apparently not

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

Weird. It should be and on the other hand the name shouldn't even affect the checks on if the planet can be attacked.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

He used the name unihabited last round too, but last round even with the rest of the mess, he still was able to be attacked, decidedly odd.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

I am still having problems with this particular planet called uninhabited.  I get this error message:

You can not launch an offensive attack against a target that is uncharted or uninhabited.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

Is that the guy named False of Uninhabited, the ruler of Exploding Sheep?  Just curious, because I was not aware that caused that, but I may check for myself later.

Note sorry for posting his name, but it really doesn't matter as anyone can look him up on alliance listings and find him as the leader.  And I am thinking this late in the round any competent alliance has him in their universe listings, not to mention the forums are fairly dead atm and no one really looks at them regularly anyway (another rant, sorry, gotta stop, just had a tough day at school; kids picking on me *whimpers*)

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

Is this bug going to fixed anytime soon - its rather critical although the time window for action has likely given False a big advantage.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

This bug is not fixed yet

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

If you had payed attention and read through the rest of this thread, you would notice that they had tried to fix it once and had sorta failed.  You would have also noticed the limited, basically none, amount of people on and listening to demands or needs.  You have to face that none of the dev team at the present cares right now enough to solve your petty problem.  Deal with it mate.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

Just in case admin is monitoring the forums, its probably time to delete False as he has flagrantly exploited this bug to prevent players from attacking him (I assure you that he would have long ago been kept in check).

The same remains true about this particular player. The player continues to use the planetary name of Uninhabited to avoid being attacked now in this present round making it the second round in a row. Deletion would probably best resolve this: it's been done before. This time do the easy and right thing- delete the account.

Remember to raise the bar but do not give into astonishment.

Account has been locked.  That should prevent anyone from using the ruler and planet name.  Deleting or renaming would just let them do it again.

Re: Bug Exploitation by a player

Hmmm, BUMP. Another player, leader of the Exploding sheep has chosen this as his planet name...

He is also using ' as his ruler name.
