Suggesstion 1: Please remove your post from this thread. Let this thread be free from spamming/flaming/*censored*.

Yep i do remember ur mage, always had a soft corner for u. But u just vanished from the game. Guess may be for exams.

I lost my ID also coz of giving it to someone whom i considered as a friend. Well its 2 edged sword. But i dont feel bad coz i got so many good PROTECTORS friends, partly (but surely not entirely) because of the trust element that we showed to each other, by sharing IDs among others. This should not be construed as if u can get / show trust only by giving ur id. But well it surely helps. However u always run a chance of losing your ID and all it takes is just one jerk to fkk up ur ID. NEVER share your ID unless u r prepared to lose it.
6.In case you are hacked, report the case to guides, and make sure u bug them, coz otherwise they will not tell you what to do (my personal experience lol ). Remember your items, your stats, your last drops, your last crafting details, coz when you will report the hacking of your caracter, you will have to give these info as proofs that it was infact your id. Your last drops and last crafting plays a decicive role and can make a difference of getting your id back or not.
But i guess u may not have full details of your ID's activities coz by your post. Still if u really want ur ID back, start bugging Guides, BEG/PLEAD/ do anything, but dont lie. They have log of each of ur activities. So accept that u shared ur ID (which is against the rules of game). And reply to the mail that u might get from customer care people of A3/Sify.

Lastly i would say start a new caracter, may be hk or archer or warrior (and get them leeched to decent levels from your friends, if u r not really addicted to ur toon. Man who cares about toon, as far as i know u, u were also playing like me, just for having fun instead of lev up like addicts.

Too many hack words seen in forums in last few days. Time for some anti-hacking education :P.

Few recent innovations of hackers which needs to be curbed:

1.If you are using sify based internet at your home and same account for playing A3 india then you need to be extra careful. Talk to your sify admins for making password protection/change procedures extra secured.

2.Never share any personal or account identifiable material on forum personal messages (pms). Dont even store such information on your own forum ids. If a friend ever pms you a3 game id/password then note it and promptly delete the pm. All forum ids can be hacked (thats how i lost my game id as well).

3.Never ever share your account (lol how many times this should be said, but no this time its a bit new). If u share your a3 game id then ur sharer can hack your id, not only during the time its shared but even after 1 month 2 months or eternity. Its possible to get/change password for him, even after u change ur password, coz of a security lapse in sify policies and dont expect much changes in it coz a3 is only a small part of sify.

Hope this helps.
