    Thank you for asking, no, absolutely not. These were only enjoying sitting in homes, chatting here and there, with no pet, in npc towns. I was trying to find some catalyst that pushed me out like, different towns, on my property on no property. It all seems random, with no rules commanding. The above example time frame was: Wharfs from approx.8am to 445pm no afk booting. Ported to Brit Estates, booted 10 min later. No pet, no exp spent or gained.

    I have considered that sometimes, it may be the free daily exp that seems to pop up randomly, but hard to prove from my angle, however, I have my doubts, because normally when I get booted after being afk for many hours, I do log back in right away, and try to stay in game afk again, but I get booted after multiple attempts, and normally give up and stay offline. And that free random experience only comes once a day.

    Maybe the oracle has gained a conscious AI, and once you port, she detects your presence, and when you try to afk again, she says, NOPE!

    At first when the new afk ruleset was in place, it was working well, then after some time, it was required to hunt randomly for a town that would not boot afk, but now, there are no safe towns, and the afk timer is brutal. Please help:)

    Copying over the testing thoughts from my inadvertent duplicate report:

    I've been testing this for a week or so and it definitely appears to be related to zoning (sometimes just a trip down to the basement will trigger it).

    Both my main character and alts experiencing this, on lots one of the accounts owns and all the others have co-owner access to.

    Thus far my testing is looking like:

    A "fresh" login onto the lot, with no zoning - thus far 100% will stay on for many hours
    Take a trip shopping to Novia Market, Silverdale, Crafters Town etc (I'm lazy and use a zone scroll to get there and recall back - walking between the towns) and when come back will very frequently get kicked
    Go mining / adventuring, when come back will often get kicked
    Sometimes just popping down to the basement and back seems to trigger it

    One more observation - when I said a "fresh" login above this means a full client restart - I have now observed it happening after previously being kicked then just logging straight back in without a full client restart.

    This seems fixed! I was able to leave my character standing in my house for over a half hour the other day. Previously I had been kicked within 15 minutes or so. Thank you!

    I've done some testing on this by doing the things that were triggering this and agreed it does appear fixed so far :)
