I'm really glad that Cyan has come through on letting people express their creativity through the HoI and FH bevins. It goes to show you that they really are willing to put some trust into the player community, a trust which will hopefully continue into open source. It also shows that they're willing to put some guidelines in as a framework for that creativity, which I think will also be needed when open source arrives.

But as for the current situation with HoI and FH, we should enjoy these as much as we can between now and whenever open source happens. I say this because one of the first things the community should focus on, when open source happens, is finding and closing the exploits which make these hacks possible (assuming that the server code is also open-sourced). Open source will (hopefully) mean a larger, more active player base, which means more black hats, which means more inconvenient hacks.

On the other hand, one solution might be to keep the exploits in place, but cover them over with sanity checks that can be disabled for individual bevins, ages, instances, etc., at the owner's/creator's request, to let people have this kind of fun. Might be tricky to implement, though.

Guess I'll stop there before we get too far into the details, since that would be kind of off-topic for this forum (and if my whole post isn't really appropriate for this forum, I heartily thank and encourage a mod to put it somewhere better), but I am interested in hearing what other people have to say about how these hacks should be handled once some time (such as from the players) can be devoted to updating the software.

Security is hard and often an endless chase of wasted cycles as the good guys try to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. Instead, top priority will be fixing the "Bevin" problem, I'm sure. It is noteworthy that RAWA used the word 'hood' fourteen times in his announcement, including the title, while using 'bevin' not at all. :P
