After taking a look at the Unique's thread, and observing many year's of wotmud behavior, I have always wondered what the point of having multiple uniques across multiple alts was...

Logically speaking, if the hope is that uniques are active and always in play, then having 1 character have multiple uniques across a number of alts makes that impossible.

To that end, I suggest IMM's implement a rule to restrict the number of unique's a player can have to only 1 alt. The more of them that are in play, the better it is in my opinion.
You are asking:
1: Someone to pay attention, constantly, to the location of the uniques.
2: To then conduct intrusive character tracing on every player who has a unique.
3: Pull the rent files on every single one of those characters (and bear in mind that some people have more than 30 alts) and check they don't have more than one.
4: To put people in Unique Jail, with all of the bad feeling and harrumphing *that* typically causes, just to remove it.

That is an insane amount of work for very little practical benefit. Elysia has said she's not doing it. I'm not doing it, and I highly doubt Vampa will want to do it either.
