Accounts

Every pet site handles accounts differently, whether it's straight up usernames, user ID numbers, multiple accounts, beta & alpha accounts, et cetera. This post details how Whimsy Bells plans on handling these aspects of accounts.

Every user will be limited to one account. The only exceptions that will be made will be for certain staff members who will inevitably get an upper-hand and not be able to play the game as it is intended to be played. Their secondary accounts may or may not be secret, as well. And again, this only applies to certain staff members - particular positions where they have to be stuffing their accounts with items to test things out. This will not be common whatsoever, and any staff member caught transferring items, et cetera, between their two accounts will probably be booted.

We're going to go by a user ID system, that way users can freely change their names and so on. However, elitism surrounding low ID numbers will be discouraged.

No user can sell their account. If you, for whatever reason, feel that you no longer need or want your account - maybe you're leaving the site, maybe you want to start fresh - then you must first contact the staff. I'm still working out the details, but in situations like these where the user absolutely does not ever want to use that account again, we are considering having Account Auctions. However, there a lot of complications involved in that, so it's more likely that they'll be converted into NPC accounts and the contents of the account will be auctioned instead. We'll see!

As far as beta and alpha accounts go, we'll probably have at least alpha. However, any alpha or beta testing will be free. It's silly to charge for that, and we don't plan on doing so. There will be a screening process, but your helpful testing will get you some perks (some permanent, some not) and your account will be classified as beta or alpha.
