Your post made me laugh because I recognize the affliction :) It will probably get less acute over time.

I don't think it should be a problem if people automate some monastery access as long as there is no automatic voting. (I believe there is also some detection in place to get rid of those - not sure). But if the frequence is not too high, and as long as the aim is not solely to get XP, I would think such scripts are OK.

Having said that, if you're away for a few days it makes more sense to shut down any such processes; why load the server more than is necessary? (Hopefully not for those lousy 2 XP per day...)

[marioroy]: choroba++, Discipulus++. It depends on the type of module. Data-type "only" modules are likely multi-process safe, re: Hash::Ordered, Tie::IxHash.
[marioroy]: ... when shared via MCE::Share-> share(...)
[marioroy]: Net type modules are likely not multi-process safe unless stated in the documentation.
[marioroy]: The Prima author fixed his module to be both thread and multi-process safe. Thanks Dmitry.
[marioroy]: Of all the GUI-type modules, Prima was the worst regarding thread/multi- process safety. Now, it's the best for safety. ;-)
[marioroy]: Tk, Gtk2, Gtk3 requires extra care.
[marioroy]: I was unable to run parallel with Win32::Console. Fortunately, running parallel behind Win32::API is possible.
