1.14 About hacking of your adventurer
(see also: HELP PASSWORD) By hacking, we mean when someone steals, guesses, or otherwise obtains access to your adventurer's password or account. Failed Login Attempts --------------------- The message you get about failed login attempts is not always hacking: sometimes it's just someone who is curious, perhaps to see if a name is being used, or perhaps has even typoed the name. Nearly every adventurer sees this message a few times and it is usually nothing to worry about. In any event, when you see the message about failed login attempts, please don't immediately ISSUE! Just make sure your password is secure. See below for suggestions on how to help with that. Password Security ----------------- The security of your accounts for all of your adventurers is your concern and your sole responsibility. You choose the password, and it is your job to protect it! We don't want you to be hacked, or to lose your character, so here are a few ideas on how to reduce the chance of hacking and protect your passwords. 1) Never tell your password to anyone. 2) Don't write your password down where anybody else can find it. 3) Use a password that is difficult to guess. Use letters, numbers, AND special characters. Don't just use a name or common words.

If there is ever any problem with your account, you must be able to identify yourself. The only way to identify yourself is to give your real world name, birthdate, and email, with adventurer name. If you can't do that, then we won't be sure that you are the rightful owner of the adventurer. 6) In cases where failed login attempts happen more than a few times, you may wish to email your full, proper registration information to firstname.lastname@example.org, who can record it separately in case of a successful hack, and can record the internet addressing information of the failed login attempts.
