Manamarket (Ya'll better !getback !money ASAP)

Post by wushin » 13 Apr 2016, 17:53

Manamarket currently has !add and !relist disabled. There is just too much garbage lingering in MM causing it to crash or get full or stuck constantly. It needs to either sellout out of or expire everything. We really need to cleanse it.

To be true, I didnt use ManaMarket for selling yet, but I think it is extraordinary compared to the other markets so it should be alive and working.. Additionally I am not a friend of funerals, too.

So I thought about whether it is an idea to put a Reset Deadline for ManaMarket (maybe a 1-week time limit for people to get back their stuff), after time expired everything left will be released in a drop party or just deleted.

Also, to avoid this problem in the future can there be implemented an obligatory time limit for the items to be sold? If they are not sold or taken back, they can be deleted or, if this is not somehow offensive, implemented in Game by giving players the chance to win the stuff (maybe it can be connected to the lottery...?)

Just some thoughts.

I am being asked now that manamarket is empty, when can we see manamarket reopened?

Well it's not empty. Some things are merely unlisted.

The next step is one of the admins has to take a ManaMarket snapshot of whats left. Make that into a nice spreadsheet so we know who had what in case they come looking later in time. Then log on as MM to the game and purge inventory so the script runs.

This all is merely delaying the inevitable. We need a better procedure than what MM provides.
