    "Squatters often claim rights over the spaces they have squatted by virtue of occupation, rather than ownership; in this sense, squatting is similar to (and potentially a necessary condition of) adverse possession, by which a possessor of real property without title may eventually gain legal title to the real property."

    Now keeping that description in mind do you ever think that there are some people that don't own Torn but have squatters rights? they always have cash but yet you are always broke, they win the lotto while you try scrape enough cash together for your next bet, they can go asleep at a decent time like 10 pm but you are up until 4am trying to recover your losses, don't you just hate them? that Beerstein one is a total squatter

    lol Beerstein is one of my best friends on here, that part was just a joke that I knew he'd get the jist of xD

    But anyway the point of the thread still stands, do you feel there are some people on Torn who, by virtue of torn age/level/wealth , feel they have inherently more rights than others? One example of a commonly used tactic being to use bounties to chase someone they dislike off the forums or a specific thread. Another being the whole "noob" thing, I've seen many times where someone will try argue that another persons points are invalid simply because their Torn age is lower. Those are both symptoms of a sense of entitlement that basically says "I've been here longer so I know better than you"

    lol thats exactly what I mean, I remember when I was still only a nipper on here there† was a lot of that on the forums and there was a group of about 10 members that genuinely thought they ran the forums and constantly bountied anyone who disagreed with them, the forums were very much a case of "Noobs shouldn't speak unless spoken to" , new people were literally afraid to post lol

    If Torn City is located in Texas as the travel agent map suggests, they're f**ked anyways.

    Texas don't take kindly to squatters.

    Besides, anyone over 5 digits really is a noob.

    tc play money is worth less than toilet paper. i havent bothered much with making tc play money over the past 4 or 5 years. i just make enough to have nerve and energy refills as well as buying 24 nerve bottles a day. i cant see the point in building a massive mountain of tc play money because i cant see anything exciting to do with it.

    there needs to be more stuff to spend our play money on.
    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    It's not nearly as bad now as it was in the past, one line always used in the old days was "Well you wouldn't know because you weren't here for the big crash",† I use to just laugh at people when they said that to me, once I responded "It was a server that went down not the titanic ya bunch of drama queens" and about 8 different people bountied the crap out of me for a few weeks for that xD

    I thought this was going to be more like if your spouse was inactive for a few years you can talk to a staff member and have it all transfered to you.

    But hmm Age/level/wealth well.
    With Age comes knowledge that can be past down to noobs so were like teachers so yes gives us alittle more rights then noobs especially when a 5 day old new player comes and and starts spouting suggestions without really even playing yet.

    Level to me means nothing there are lots of younger people who level whore if you can find the right targets i'm sure you can blast your way up to lvl 80 in a few months.

    Wealth they may feel entitled but money really isn't a big thing in this game (at least for me), just because they can bounty people for months without stop just makes them (insert swearwords).
