Its my understanding that the pkill ooc timer was designed so that
pkillers cant fight, then hide ooc, re-enter, etc... reload even...
Can we make it so that recall sets the pkill flag on? I recall people
from safe rooms, and then they just go ooc the moment they disappear,
and taunt or do whatever. Its sounds like an abuse of ooc to me.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Perhaps there should be some reconsideration of the role of the ooc
lounge in the light of pkok. I suspect that it will be abused more
often, not less.

Good idea, but if that's going to go in then I think recall would
also have to obey level restrictions, and there would be difficulties
with non-pk folk using recall on one another, necessary though it may
be in certain situations.

just use the befriend code again.. if somebody that isn't befriended
recalls you and he happens to be clanned, it sets off the timer, if
not, it doesn't.

Taking into account a certain popular area that requires recall
to exit the area ...
- (befriend idea) every clanned person on the run would have to
befriend the recaller if they were clanned?
- (level restrictions) given the wide level range on runs in
this area, there would need to be several recallers of
differing levels. I've seen this area run with a level 9
surgeon, so I'm not just talking about leeches.
- (ooc tick timer) I can see the reasons for wanting an ooc tick
timer when you've just spent mana recalling someone out of a
safe room. But a tick timer would also affect those who have
not been engaged in pkill activity, but who have merely been
on a run in this area, which isn't pk activity, and therefore
shouldn't be covered by the tick timer.
This is just one example of non-pk use of recall by pk-enabled chars.
There are other non-pk uses of recall, such as recalling to bank,
to get out of a tight spot in mobkill, etc. I don't see why the
use of recall for these activities should be subject to an ooc
tick timer. Mind you, if the system could take into account the
reason for the recall and impose a tick timer only when there is a
pk reason for the recall, I would have no objections.

how about a similar code as befriend that keeps a list of "enemies?"
for example, if char a has char b on his list of enemies, char a
recalling char b will set the ooc timer, if not, it won't. only
pke chars will be given this 'unfriendly' list. or, if it's too
bothersome, just use the gag list, and ppl recalling somebody on
their gaglist will set ooc timer if the recaller is enabled.
blatant misuse of this should be warned, of course, to circumvent
lotsa extra code, perhaps.
