automated database and map tool
there is a link to an automated database and map tool in your forum. i won't use because it's forbidden but if i found it then others probably have too, so it would be a disadvantage to us 'honest' members not use it while others do. i imagine it would be hard to enforce and punish those who use it, and stuff like this is almost unavoidable for games like this. furthermore, the same information on an automated database is accessible by anyone who has countless hours of free time to search the whole servers and writing a database by hand. i believe external websites and programs are going to be impossible to control and such rather be embraced by the civony community much like tribalwars and twstats.
