hi all

So we did cair herald today and it seems like it got downed. Is this an official thing? I was thinking imms can just add coding into the herald that checks if you have done it and it will tell you to come back the next day.

I hate how people abuse a good thing and now its downed.

I wasn't aware of this, not being active for a few weeks. Although anything getting abused for qps and so on would get noticed.

It was discussed upstairs and I presume the change went in, though I was not around to see it.

We love Heralds. You love Heralds. Like, really love, they're great! Unfortunately though with the amount some people were completing them, it was just too many qps being gained in a short space of time, considering the nature of the effort required and risks associated.

We do hope people continue to use them and enjoy the feature, but the fear individuals going from rank 1 to rank 7 in 10-12 weeks doing nothing but smobbing was real, and we thought it best to address it.
