    You have 2 mins to respond. If you aren't afk that's plenty of time.

    I'm sure I see more of these than anyone with all the fishing I do, so I've gotten really good at them!
    You're first offense only sends you to jail for a few mins. the more times you get caught the longer you have to stay. It will tell you what time you're allowed to leave jail. It's mostly automated.

    Ok. I made a mistake with the macro switch, i started the mining macro while I was with another character, then I forgot the macro On, but the miner was just mining an empty spot for 5 minutes or so. I checked him a bit worried because 5 minutes is enough time...and he was jailed. Ok.

    I did not gathered reasources without taking care of the weight and all the organization that comes with the ores and the distance from the Forge.
    Also I had ores around, strategically placed, to carry them back at the right time on my route. Unfortunately, the check system (that I like), made a classic robot mistake.

    My macro does not make char to move or smelt or nothing else, just mine the actual spot. I switch between the tamer, the crafter and the talker. This is not AFK obviusly, but can you call it Unattended?

    If it just happened you can usually page a gm and get released and the mark removed from your account. A good practice is to always make sure your any mining/lumber jacking/fishing macros are stopped before leaving the computer or switching to a different character. It's a small price to pay to keep bots from ruining our economy.

    One thing I can't understand is I get this gump like once per 3 hours of chopping trees...but mining, I get it seems 10-15 mins constantly.

    Every time you perform an action that will bring the gump (like each swing of an axe, each cast of a fishing pole, etc) you have a certain chance to get the gump. Mining goes faster than LJ, so you "roll the dice" more. Plus, like @Pirul said, RNG might just like you more when you mine.

    Id like to apologize to the server - I had no intention of GM'ing fishing, but life distracted me and I got a prison sentence. Ill be more careful next time!

    Really? I literally went to piss real quick, and when I got back I saw the transport to jail.

    It could have been a lot worse. You could have been in there with a 250lb guy named Tyrone and his pina colada!

    That was my "first offence" too. As others have said in the thread, you can possibly page a GM and explain, they might take it off your record for you. If not, it's not that big a deal, really unless you plan on doing lots of risky afk resource gathering further down the line.

    This system is well designed, it may backfire sometimes but Chris and his crew are very understanding about it, just explain yourself. They can read logs.
