    To those who have been suspended before...

    when your suspension period was over, were u using windower when u first logged back in? is it possible to implement windower detection (maybe from the recent patches)?[/i]

    A little worried are we?

    No, not possible to detect a Windower because it doesn't send anything to the servers that isn't already sent normally (ie it does things locally). The only way anyone can figure out you are using a Windower is to ask you, or you say you are; both of which are stupid things to answer yes to if you are worried.

    The only way its detectable is if you are using the TP plugin since in that case, you are downloading extra information from the server.

    Take that plugin out and you're fine as long as you don't blab.

    no, you're not. that information is sent to every client. it is just not shown on the client side. the windower does not make request from the FFXI servers for additional information that the client is not getting already.

    Actually, afaik, that plugin is using information that is already sent to you. It just interprets the data so its readable and puts it on screen. From what I've seen, the only way that one can be detected is from telling some guy in your party to use his TP even though he never mentioned what his TP was.

    (Milks) Use your TP, Frank
    (Frank) LOL HOW U NO I GOT TP
    (Milks) My windower plugin, of course!

    I was suspended once and I don't even use windower. Kinda the lesser MWM story, but they didn't permanently ban me, think it was 96 hours. '-'

    they didn't ban you because you were suspended once. MWM has been suspended before.

    I was more referring to being just reprimanded in general for treating a rude JP player as he/she deserved when if it were to another NA, the GM would've said to just blist me.
