How to keep Hackers out-

1) if you see any old guy saying "Experienced GM looking for server i have years of service people love me on my server" This is one of the way hackers will advertise and once there in as a GM theres virtually no stopping them, theyll ban, jail, and all sortsa stuff to root admin and normal players (this may seem reversible, but still dangerous, as the hacker may hack the root admin's IP and get his hands on the database (I know it sounds crazy but this is exactly what happened on my last server I was a GM and i dont want it to happen to this, the best server in the world =]))

2) If you post and advertisement video, if someone PMs you saying "pls pls can I be a GM on your server" either decline, or tell chance and the others to ignore the application, risks are not a good idea when it comes to your computer and details =/

3) Decline any Applications made by people you havent seen on the server, know, or trust, if we dont know much about the it may as well be a Blizzard employee trying to get in and shut us down, or at least postpone the application until we see more of the person, ating too nice shows suspicion just so you know =)

*Precautions*

-Install an excellent Firewall on your computer, this will keep out any hacker programs
-Have two good Antivirus: Just in case the hacker may get past your firewall have two prepared in order to maximise detection chances.
-If you suspect anyone please tell one of the following:
-Chanceless
-Nyxe
-Silverxoder
-Taroth
-Fade
-Solitude

Do NOT tell any other GMs, not to be untrusting but you must be cautious of who you trust and dont trust =)

I will modify this post as more GMs are recruited, GMs with the consolidation of these current GMs I trust will be posted under the report suspection list, also people on this list should be trustworthy and so immune to suspection =)

I only take half credit for this, the top half is mine, the rest edited (down from the tips for chance) it is copied from MMowned that bit, I take credit for bothering to look it up? xD
