I do understand your point and personally I am also mad.
However, no matter how i think of it and regardless what people would say, it is not a player abuse because this is still my fault in the first place. This is something I still missed and the users could never of upgraded it to begin with if only I checked the script of the item beforehand. I simply assumed that there’s nothing wrong with it. Though I’m disappointed that other players did not report the bug to me instantly after finding it out.
Abuses or Exploits, are ofc easy to differentiate. There is no point to reward them.
I have a counter offer for bug finders, exploiters or abusers though. Soon enough I will provide a Custom Box to reward cash points for VALID Bug Reports. Those boxes will only be given to the first user to report the bug or exploits. As a veteran player myself, there are even abuses or exploits that I would never report to the gm as it wont benefit me either way. With this program, both sides will benefit and the server will be better as we progress.
