Admins and Moderators

One way to recognize staff is on their profile by role. If the role is not set as “player” or “NPC”, they are automatically site staff. You will also notice special badges on their profiles.

Like mentioned in the Terms of Use (Fair Play): We expect users to use some extent of “common sense” when playing the game. Don't try to find the borders, because there will be consequences.
