Suggestion talk:20110807 Idling Notice
Discussion from DS

|Type: convenience/anti-zerging measure|
|Description: A lot of players who have been around have collected various alts and idle and unidle them regularly. One inconvenient detail is that we have to keep in mind where that alt has idled, and when exactly we have put it to sleep, in order to avoid getting too close with other alts.|
What I've been wondering about is, why use external means when the game could do it itself?
Just give the player an e-mail notice when the alt idles after the five day period, along with coordinates so that the player can check back where he has left his alt before he accidentally re-activates it too close to another alt. To avoid abuse, this notice would be delivered by the e-mail connected to that alt.

good idea, but personally i would not want any more spam in my mail box.-- bitch 13:47, 31 July 2011 (bst)
- There could simply be an option to opt out of the idling notice, in the same way you can opt out of game update mails. -- Spiderzed█ 13:55, 31 July 2011 (BST)
- that would work for me-- bitch 13:56, 31 July 2011 (bst)
- It would be the 5-day-period. The month period can be checked with the contacts list. -- Spiderzed█ 13:06, 7 August 2011 (BST)
- I'd send again at a month, just as a reminder. If you're worried about too many emails then you'd opt out of it already, so a second reminder would just help those who would use it anyway. 13:16, 7 August 2011 (BST)
I personally think this is a good idea, and I assume it only works for characters filed under the same e-mail, but I think it could simply be an optional part of the game screen. And by that I mean it could be a box stating the name, status and location opf all characters that share the same e-mail as the account you are using. (And this would obviouslyu have been a great comment to make if this suggestion was still developing.) But apart from that I can't think of any qualms. -- Rahrah has a signature that won't become obsolete. 13:58, 8 August 2011 (BST)
