    Trial Accounts - A Way to Appease the Impatient

    I'm here to address one thing: begging for faster application completions by Account Managers and etc.

    Sometimes the chat (and some threads) and influenced by "desperate" people, saying how they really want an account now and such.
    But most of the time, once new members get their accounts and create that new OP class that's just been released, they stop using the accounts and never come back.

    So I was thinking if there was a way to get these desperate people a trial account - one that is not permanent and can do anything with it (for a short period of time).
    Once they try it, they can decide if they want to get their own account, or just quit (usually 1 or 2 months later)

    Problems and Solutions:
    1) Hacking
    There's not really a solution to this besides the HackShield program and the infamous ban Nexon gives out. You have to hope the member doesn't do any of that stuff.

    2) Lie Detectors
    I'm pretty sure there's a section on the application that addresses some test of some sort.

    3) Having the Trial Account taken before its expiration
    The original owners of the account should make sure that the trial player is notified of its expiration. Main reason is due to having all items and mesos lost. This can be solved in which once the player receives his own account, he can transfer anything he can. Characters may be deleted depending on the next trial player.

    4) "Personal" Characters
    Usually players are cautious of others deleting their stuff or etc. It has happened before and such. This is why this is a trial account - where everything you do isn't permanent and is shared by others. The owners may advise the tryers to make new characters instead of replacing the old ones just for the sake of the server, but the main purpose of the trial account is for the trial of gameplay. Also, making a main on trial accounts wouldn't be advised.

    5) NX
    Seriously? Buying NX on an account that may be shared or given away at some point? Don't purchase NX on accounts that aren't purely yours (especially trial ones).

    6) "Personal" Items
    As mentioned before, there should be a given period a time to transfer anything a player can to his new personal account.

    7) The BIG Responsibility - the provider of the Trial Account
    No one wants to lend his or her account to some strangers that may not have such a good app. But there may be a few generous players who have the ability to create extra accounts on a Nexon ID. I'm not saying Trial Accounts should be incorporated, but the idea and consideration of them should be thought carefully about.

    Because it is a Trial Account, if there are any mishaps, most likely it would be the temporary users' fault that it happened. Since it is a Trial Account, there is nothing to be complained, with the exception of a ban.


    I would like to know the community's opinion on this idea of Trial Accounts. Take into consideration that this is not mandatory, and Trial Accounts would be available only if the temporary user receives his own account. There need not to be 15 Trial Accounts, but few - like 1 to 3 accounts. (I will be willing to provide one Trial Account on a shared Nexon ID, perhaps sometime in the future)

    How exactly would that work...? Unless the passwords were to be changed after X amount of time, EVERYONE would have access, and they wouldn't really need to apply... It's kinda a good thought, but really... just seems like quite a big hassle with quite a few issues...

    I was thinking that Trial Accounts were given after applications were sent. And yes, passwords would have to be changed probably at the least once every 3 new users.
    (PS if a PIC gets changed, the owner can reset it right?)

    EDIT: The most time I would give a user would be 1 week tops. Just so we can get the line moving. Minimum of 3 days, 1 day, if requested from the user (if he doesn't need it anymore)

    Sorry man, but this just seems like a HUGE hassle. Quite frankly, I think that patience should be needed to play Maple. We get enough idiots joining as it is, we might as well make sure they can at least submit a decent application and have a fair amount of patience before they get a chance to play.

    Problem: People WILL learn how to change the PiC and force us/people who provide trial accounts to have to reset it everytime.

    Problem: People who provide trial accounts can get banned if too many people fail LDs on their accounts. Your solution to Lie detectors is pretty flimsy, why would they learn how to pass LDs if it's not their own account?

    Problem: You do know how many people come here every day right? So who's going to give out trial accounts and change the PIC every day for hundreds of people every month? No one.

    Of course we can reset the PIC, but do you realize how much of a hassle that'll be?
    It's not worth pleasing the impatient for something like that.

    Why would we even want to appease to the impatient in the first place? We want intelligent, patient, and cool headed forum members.

    Sometimes I just wish that PICs for each character are different.

    Understandable, but that really doesn't help right now. Would maybe be doable of KMS was different, but it's not. KMS is KMS. Sorry.
