A maintenance notice has been posted.

Hey everyone,

Unfortunately, a few people have willingly handed over their account name and password to people they do not know because they promised to put items on their accounts for them. I'm asking you to spread the word in-game that a) Never, ever give your account and password out to anyone, not even to your best friend, or even a Referee! And b) account security is your responsibility so if you willingly hand over your password and account name we may not be able to help you get your account back.

If someone is telling you that they can get you a special item but need your account information to do so, they are trying to take your account. Your account information should always stay private!

Please spread the word to those that are unable to read the forums too! Thanks.

Chief Referee Scarlet
