Hey Wolfhomies!

We wanted to make sure you were all in the loop on our new idle checking protocol. We understand it has been an issue lately based on this topic, and we have updated our policies to reflect a way to relieve some of the idle user issues that were raised. Administrators will now be checking idles more frequently. This will include admins being able to enter full rooms to idle check as long as they are not staying in that room or doing it for personal gain. The big heads up here is that anyone that is idle for 2+ hours may be kicked without warning as well.

Hopefully these changes will help! If you have any questions or concerns, or need a room checked, please feel free to contact any admin on chat, send in a problem ticket, or contact any of us via message.

Thanks for being awesome!
-The Wolfhome Administration Team

Just double checking - we are allowed to be as idle as we please in our own private rooms, correct?

Is there any harm in sharing the procedures with us in effort to be more transparent??

Life's a bitch, so if it's easy, you're doing it wrong.

That is the procedure? We'll be going in, asking if people are alive, and kicking them?
I guess I"m not sure what you're asking?

I thought that was how it had always been? What changed?

Admins were discouraged from entering full rooms to do idle kicks due to it seeming as an abuse of power and we generally would only check idles on request. We also would ask for a response, regardless of how long a user was idle.

I hope that clarifies!
