We have been made aware of accusations concerning the moderation on Guild Wars Legacy, that we would support item scammers.
It should speak for itself that as players and members of the Guild Wars community we do not support item scamming and item scammers. Nor should anyone else.
Guild Wars Legacy is NOT the Guild Wars Police - we are not able to police anything related to the game itself, only what happens on the Guild Wars Legacy Forum and within the Guild Wars Legacy Rules.
What Guild Wars Legacy does is provides a platform for you, the community, to use for Guild Wars related activity - you can post your collections here, buy/sell things and so many others. This platform is moderated by us, according to our Forum Rules that are clearly laid out on https://guildwarslegacy.com/rules/.
We can only moderate based on what is occurring on our platform.
The topic of scams/scammers has created a lot of discussion on our team chat and we have been discussing how to handle this and similar things in the future.
However, this isn't quite as simple as it seems: if Guild Wars Legacy needs to have an area where known scammers can be listed this would lead to the question: what is enough proof of being a scammer?
These aren't easy questions to answer, especially since Guild Wars Legacy does not have a way to verify things in-game. Screenshots and images can be forged. We want to avoid a hostile environment filled with drama.
At present Guild Wars Legacy simply does not allow anything like this but some discussions are ongoing.
Breaking Guild Wars Legacy Rules will result in actions taken on Guild Wars Legacy.
- We're not the Guild Wars police.
- We only can take action on Guild Wars Legacy and will hand out punishments based upon that.
If you have questions about the choices made by us, you can always mail us on [email protected] or to me personally on [email protected] - I'm always available for questions (though my responses can take a few days).
