Just curious -- what is a "bad action"? Can't Post

I see that some guests are listed are committing one.
Or maybe i/we doesn't want to know in public, o precious.

Where do you see that 'bad action' listing? [In reply to] Can't Post

Is it next to people's names in Who's Online, or on the discussion boards somewhere?

If you could take a clip of what you see and post it here, that'd be helpful in figuring out what's happening. :)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

It's in Who's Online [In reply to] Can't Post

Not the regular members, but the unnamed guests that are visiting the site. I just checked, and there are none there now, but more often than not, a few of the guests' locations are listed as 'bad action'. I've often wondered about this myself, so I'm curious to find out the answer. Smile

I suspect... [In reply to] Can't Post

those are bots rather than real people. They are probably trying to access things that don't exist or that aren't public access.


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.
