    I'm not sure how many people there are or what goes on. その名に恥じず is difficult, but the name is well recognised due to his/her reputation, and this is its negation like 'not to'. Not a good Japanese sentence but..

    As your reputation shows―the longer* you do neglect play, if things go on more fully, that will be very comfortable (to whom? to me?).
    *'better' might be better.

    I'm almost scared to ask, but are you talking about AFK play in a status-raising game with macro/bots? or is this another adult material? Needs more context.

    to frequency-san,
    その名に恥じない is often translated as "~worthy of its(his/her) name(reputation)"

    Yes, but see this 'worthy', an adjective. In that sentence, sb does the play その名に恥じないほど、その名に恥じないように, an adverbial. So I arranged a bit.

    I mean, I'm afraid その名 is referring to 放置プレイ here instead of "you". But it all depends on context, which isn't clear.
