    A few in game questions

    I remember that you once mentioned that there might be a couple of images of phemes put into the games at some point. Is Y2 going to have some?

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    The importer is the last thing to be worked on, because it needs to know exactly how to convert data from Y1, which is only possible when everything in Y2 is already known. Rhialto, you should know that a lot of of Y2's details are being kept secret from us. They don't want to give extra details away. Suffice to say, Y2 is playable. I imagine most of the work remaining on it, is filling out tables, and maybe some touching up of the artwork and UI. I expect editing of the writing continues as well. The text has got to be the easiest part of the game, (though due to the large amount of text calling it easy is surely an understatement) The reason why they refuse to give out the class list is because in Y1 they cut out potions at the last second. They don't want to disappoint us by having to backtrack if that happens again for another class.

    Legate, what is the most controversial of the existing legal Gates items that is public knowledge?

    I thought that name was familiar... A relative of Durand? It is spelled a little differently... Is that a typo or a different name? If it is the same, I guess that would explain why he has knowledge of all sorts of obscure magics, even if he is only so-so at casting. Is this fairly well known in the present day? Would Durand comment on it if he was asked? Another question that probably should be asked, is about how many students at the Academagia have multiple members of their family that attended the school? Would it be easier to list the students who were the first in their family to attend?

    These are 2 questions that got lost in the shuffle last time.

    How effective can you be in getting passwords to wards that way? and are countermeasures available? Say if I had a 2 password system, and if they only knew the first, it would let them in, but not out?

    Spamming Problem

    Well, this upgrade is not too bad and so far nothing. The change to the login forum probably threw off their hacking software. I think that did it for now, but let's wait and see what happens in a few days.

    Spamming Problem

    Well, I don't like it, but it's better than being hacked. Fingers crossed it does the job.

    Spamming Problem

    my 5th email also states that. Ir's probable though, that whoever is doing this has a network of zombie PCs around the world. I wouldn't immediately assume that the person is actually reading us just yet. Edit: It's more likely that this second IP is designed to partially circumvent the ip ban so that more brute force can be applied to the password guessing.

    Spamming Problem

    It was a temporary ban. The emails even say " you can safely ignore this email and you will be able to sign in again at xxxxxx" if it was you. By the way I'm on 4 emails now.The bans aren't even a full day long. The most recent email I received at 10:25 AM and it said that the ban would be lifted on 4:24 PM the same day. So it's only a 6 hour ban. Legate, I do believe that the urgency on stopping this jerk is just a tad bit higher now.. Edit: What's even more worrying is that by comparing emails, each attempt is right after the last temporary ban expires,

    Spamming Problem

    Yup. I don't see them cracking mine that way either. I just don't want to get warning emails for the next 100 years, is all.

    Spamming Problem

    Now I have 3 email denoting this. It is getting annoying. Fortunately my password was assigned by the forum as is a complete mess of randomness, so no dictionary hack will get it. Even so, I don't want to get emails for eternity waiting for these jerks to get lucky. The law of averages state that eventually they'll get lucky with some already created account that was given a really simple password. Really, I hope that you can get those folks behind the forum to do something about it, legate.

    Spamming Problem

    Oh, boy. I can just see it now. Our accounts hacked in order to spam the forum. It's almost like we have to combat Mastery mages! haha. But Rhialto, I don't think you need to change your password. only 5 attempts is not a lot of attempts when dealing with a brute force hack. I have a crap ton of passwords these days. So many I can't possibly remember them, so I have them all in a special place. If one gets compromised, I don't have to worry about others, and I'll deal with it then.

    I experienced that scummy thing too.

    We have had this discussion on binding spirits before. For some reason Schwarzbart, you seem very fixated on Mastery being used in the binding but the legate has already confirmed that isn't so. For 'Taming' you can use Mastery but that also isn't required. Rhialto's understanding is essentially correct.
