Will a /gift from a dubscribed account protect from the purge? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Well, having browsed the forums for a while, I've gotten a few things I think are correct.

1) Dubscribing does not protect from the purge.

2) A /gift will.

3) Any person can have more than one account, although 3 is the recommended maximum.

If all that is correct, then what if someone does this:

Dubscribes a second account with two months.
/gifts his/her main account 1 month.

Is this allowed? And if it is would it protect the main account from a purge?

1. Doubscribing does protect from the purge.

2. Subscribing by /gift appears to protect from the purge, but I keep forgetting to run the experiment meself.

3. There is no maximum number of accounts. There is a maximum of 3 unpaid accounts. You can have unlimited paid accounts.

Your scenario I find a bit weirdly pointless, probably because it assumes doubscribing doesn't protect an account, which is incorrect.

The following actions are known NOT to protect the pirates on an account:
Buying doubloons from the doubloon exchange
Coinscribing does not protect an account from purging

I have gifted many many of my alts and I get this when my time has run out:

Whether ye continue to play as a lowly freeloader or nay, yer Pirate will be safe and sound should ye decide to subscribe again in the future. We look forward to your return!

It doesn't seem to be able to distinguish gift from sub. Once, two years went by and none of my gifted alts were purged.

Am OM responded here BUT - I still get the same e-mail and have never had a gifted pirate purge.

Be aware that the yppedia is mostly written by players and has known problems. In particular, that text you quoted was mostly written by me based on claims made by OMs/developer statements. I could be mis-interpreting what they said, they could be incorrect about how the program actually works (aka bugs), things could have changed between the time the ringers posted stuff and now, etc.

As Seatexan mentions, she is testing this stuff to make sure the yppedia is accurate and has found some strange/conflicting info.
