Due to recent events and the confusion caused, it is time to ask our community about this topic.

Do you have any other suggestion or miss a poll option? Post it here.

I think having Multi-boxing would be good for RP purposes, but as the poll suggestions, as long as it's not ruining the fun for others and being abused.

I have few questions about this poll. Why is every option allow. Also how exactly will we measure harm to others and server health.

I'd rather like a "No multiboxing" option.

The "No multibox" option is the third one. Obviously there's nothing wrong about using momentarily another account to enchant your character, trade something or filming an event.

Personally, I strongly recommend using 3-rd option since it's most healthy for the server with a lower population like Turtle WoW is for now. The thing about multiboxing wouldn't sound like abuse if Turtle WoW had a subscription fee.

PvE could suffer from multiboxing just as much as any other PvP server due to heavily changed economics and farmed items which would impact the flow of the levelling curve as well. How? Gold. So it is best if Devs would stick to the third option here.

Yes. With the only restriction - don't let them join battlegrounds in the future.

I'm of the opinion that "Multi-boxing" is where you use third party programs that allow multiple actions on multiple windows/instances of WoW, simultaneously with a single keystroke.
I have personally always lvl-ed with 2 accounts, the 2nd account being a toon on auto-follow. I've heard of this referred to as "Ghosting". Any action on the "ghost" toon would require the user to "Alt-tab" into the window and manually press buttons to perform actions.
No third party programs or scripts or screen splitters. This was never against the ToS in Vanilla retail.
I have stopped this activity atm until we come to a consensus as a community, and am happy to follow any rules.
Full-on multi-boxing i.e. getting hit by 5x Shaman (lightning bolt + earthshock x5 insta-kill) I am dead against. especially in BG's.
2 accounts to PVE and not bother anyone is my thing.
My 2 cents said.
Thanks
