Common Questions:

Q: How can I find out what is bannable and not?

A: Yostar's Terms of Service can be found here.

Q: Is using an emulator a bannable offense?

A: No.

Q: Is using macros for farming a bannable offense?

A: Yes.

Q: Is having a second account (aka clue slave) a bannable offense?

A: Technically, yes, though personally I have doubts that they would ban you for a few extra accounts.  Most likely their concerns are mass account creators who intend to sell.  But keep in mind, it is technically bannable.
