    Default On a serious note regarding Auto-Farmers.

    Even after the announcement that auto-farmers will take serious consequences, the number of auto-farmers has not decreased, however increased. People know, truth is you won't even be found auto-farming as there are thousands more of people doing the same. This is a very serious issue as not only does this brings inflation to the amount of gems (meaning gem prices drop), but also inflation to farmables. Our economy is at stake and it seems that the growtopia team is well aware of it, but no 'crackdown' on auto-farmers have really happened.

    Has the growtopia team come up with a way to detect and find these auto farmers? Maybe a system that will logs people who are punching/building in repeated sequences, or maybe moderators that are specifically designed to monitor BFG worlds and the system logs.

    Also a question to all you people, how many percent of the growtopia community do you think auto-farms? Also what are possible solutions and ideas you might have, on finding these auto-farmers? Opinions on this thread too.

    An algorithm will always be mistaken. Possible solutions? Be more active in banning them, that's it.

    A mouse has X and Y positions. And an autofarmer will always click on the same X and Y.
    1. Try to detect repeated patterns of clicks
    2. Just ban people whose mouse movementd are super speedy (cuz they use fast mouse movements to save time)

    Will I get auto-punished for clicking extremely fast?

    I'm pretty sure they run a script that spams the block placing whilst also spamming Spacebar. (spacebar to punch) Which is hard to detect (in fact, the system probably isn't programmed to, yet.)

    It's really easy to create a macro script like these. Just like how those spam bots are used.

    Cool

    Ubisoft should just add useful moderators to the game.
