Unread post Password bug
I set up game A to use password ( option H in T Edit, ] to set password to yes ) A user made an account and used enter not a password.
I checked T Edit ( u for user account ) shows his name, bbs name and password = no password. Having set password to yes am thinking there should be at least 1 character not including the enter key?

TW has always allowed a player to choose to skip the password by pressing enter. The game verifies that you want to skip the password, and it is the responsibility of the player if no password is provided.

I know there is some debate as to whether this is the best approach, but it isn't a bug, and it's been like that forever. I've always felt that this was a decision the player needed to make, not the gameop. And it was done this way at the request of some players.

If there are ways that this is being exploited, I would consider changing it. But I've never been a big fan of limiting people's choices to protect them from themselves.
