You could as well argue that the first trade (the borrowing) was already a "final trade" and the stuff was rightfully theirs. The "giving back" only occured due to a mistake and should never happen, hence they reverted the trades.when vu10 came they were unbanned and could log in.. they traded back the items they had loaned(not their own) b4 getting locked again and then MA moved the items they traded back to them again even though they were still borrowed
all trades are final my ass
Well, you could've made a new thread if it bothers you that much, no?DAMNED RIGHT I DID!!
It doesn't bother anybody that an avatar banned SIX FUCKING YEARS AGO still "owns" 4 Land Areas?
Reason being a legal battle in progressWell, you could've made a new thread if it bothers you that much, no?
As for the LAs, it's been like that forever.
Apparently there is a reason why MA does not claim them back or delete them altogether - i think they will do as soon as it is safe fro a legal point of view - after all, nostrop and hunterz could still file law suits against their bans.
It's not your lost tax, so why do you worry? They were apparently banned for a good reason...

Legal discussion then? I know they went to court once and that did nothing and that several agreements were proposed (ask them if you want the full story I guess) but basicly they could sell their stuff if MA got a slice of the cake(was on of them)
What legal battle?
Any pending litigation must be mentioned in financial reports as per the full disclosure principle of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles).
Also, see post above by jenny ferr about inquiring with Swedish civil courts for any pending litigation involving MindArk.
I don't recall the day from when VU10 came, but it was said that due to a bug they were able to sneak in right after cryengine VU which could have reset the "timer", so something should happen soon.So in that case it can be reclaimed. I would expect it to be the same for a banned player as eventually the account would be unused for that period
Welp, seeing as nothing was done before (and I am fairly sure the accounts were past purge date thus deleting the Land Deeds), I doubt anything will happen still.Yes, it was hunting bots.
Well, the issue still stands, so i don't see why not.
The purge date, is inactivity for a period of time. I believe the reason their accounts havent been purged is cause they can still log in on the website and still keep their accounts active.Welp, seeing as nothing was done before (and I am fairly sure the accounts were past purge date thus deleting the Land Deeds), I doubt anything will happen still.
Without the Land Deeds (asusming they were included in the purge) I don't think anyone will be able to claim the LAs, which means the LAs will stay in their past owner's names.
If that's the case (which I expected to be more likely), the LAs/Land Deeds can't really be taken from them.The purge date, is inactivity for a period of time. I believe the reason their accounts havent been purged is cause they can still log in on the website and still keep their accounts active.
So no purging yet afaik
That's fine, but you know that there are forum rules that do not allow such necro bumps?One of the reasons I resurrected this thread is I consider it an example of MindArk's policy towards certain problems: ignore and hope people will forget.
There may be debate about whether this necro was pointless or not, however, I do highly recommend making a new thread about this. Get the most current info (if anyone has any) into it and go from there.Forum Rules said:3.5 - Necroposting
Pointlessly bumping of dormant, inactive threads causes confusion for other members and visitors who may not notice the original thread post date. A thread is considered inactive if there have been no replies in the last four (4) months. Posting in an inactive thread is strongly discouraged, unless there is a very good reason for reactivating the thread. If you feel an issue or topic from an inactive thread deserves renewed discussion, please create a new thread in the appropriate forum or subforum.
