Org Credits

Written by: Dec

Historically, credits have been treated as an OOC thing and not within the realm of HELP SECONDS. After all, it's generally cheaper to buy on one character and distribute to your other ones.

This generally works well, but we've been having more issues with the credits obtained from organizational purchases. There are many people that do not feel it is proper to buy org credits with one player and transfer them to an alt that is not in the same organization. Rules wise this starts to get into a grey area, but unlike gold, we have not flat out banned credit transfers between alts, even those not purchased via the website.

We have considered different alternatives to this issue, and are considering making it so all org credits become bound after being transferred. This seems to be the most in line with what people expect, but I would like to know your thoughts. If no one says anything, I plan to implement this later this month. (As if no one will say anything)

Please note that if you're inclined to suggest something else, it really needs to be simple and mechanical. The number one thing that slows down development is contested issues, and adding a new source of them is not in the cards.
