Yes, it sound good. But how can you detect someone which make savefile-scumming ? I don't think you can, except with a special version with saved game on a server on Internet, or in a Telnet game. (like for Nethack competition)

IMHO you don't need to care about it, until it actually happens.

For example there ever were only a few attempts to forge Ladder dumps, and it's running from 2002. Also, peer review works. People tend to notice something is too good to be true.

...which means someone could turnoff disconnected stairs...? Perhaps we should have an ironman comp instead

Well, I guess it could be written into the competition rules. Or I guess it could be standard that that option shouldn't be changed. Any others? I'm inclined to think that autoscum should usually be turnable off and on at the player's peril.

Oh, definitely

Personally I think it should be at one setting for the life of the game... otherwise in a game like FA, I'd turn it off whenever traversing swamps

Too late, made the rules now

There's scope for comp-by-comp rules, anyway, and the rules can always change. Also, it's not an issue in V, because autoscum is now a birth option.

I was really intrigued by the smart_chest option you mention in the other thread - until I realised it was a typo

Maybe the chest would check to see if you were a mage and then give you Wrath of God.
