    Just an example: It is forbidden to use the public IRC channels and public forums. But afaik it is not forbidden to PM people or scam them ingame.

    • Scamming
    • Players may not use the public community to advertise a scam, dishonest trade, or trap ingame.
    • Players may not use the public community to conduct a scam, dishonest trade, or trap ingame.
    • Players found to have been advertising or conducting these activities can lose their access to IRC or the Forums.
    • Scamming other players can easily fall under the discouraging gameplay policy.
    Examples of discouraging game play:

    • Excessive attempts to scam other players.


    So basically scamming is *not* a bannable offense but if one uses IRC or the forum to scam then they can be banned from IRC of the forum for it.
    Otherwise it appears scamming is tolerated within reason.

    And then again, consider the last point. A blank formulation enabling Staff to justify any jailings, bans etc. I really would ignore such vague rules like the last point until exact decisions are made by Staff that could be publicly discussed (hopefully without flame wars).

    Try making some posts here, I believe there are a few small guilds/groups of thieves running around still.

    5D was dismissed, mainly because of inactivity of its members. We had like 95% inactive thieves that even started to demand better treatment on their non-thief characters because they had some (unused) toon in 5D.

    Ultimately, all the remaining active thieves preferred to band together in another guild.

    However, that doesnt mean that 5D will never return. ;)

    Haha, the fate of all thief guilds. Seems the only way it works is when the members are all active and play together regularly, or a group where nobody pvp/pvm's really (like cA).

    You say that, but I guarantee if you go around scamming people you will be banned from the game. Might get away with it once or twice depending on how much staff likes you.

    Honestly I wouldn't know I'm just going by official statements.
