Inactive player shops

Post by Shade » Sun Jan 27, 2019 6:14 am

I have an idea but I honestly don't know if it'll work. It's regarding players that have been inactive for months or even years and the end result is not too great. The end result being decrepit and faulty shops where either the shop owner is out of stock, out of date with the price range of an object or out of money to buy items from customers. In return we are left with a scavenger hunt to find a shop that is not only active but satisfactory. So I propose a solution. A system in which if a player is not active for a set amount of time (3 months straight) then their public warp to the shop will be privatized, if the player returns they are given a notification to re publicize the warp and check their shop. This all in turn will clean the player shop list and make things easier for people overall.

just remove the offer from the player shops menu when the stock from the chest is 0?

idk how nice removing warps is as it will affect all public warps inside the same Region as the shopchest and sometimes player have several shopchests from which some may be still filled :morons:

also chests with a stock of 0 are currently not displayed in /shop :?:

soooo, privatising public warps after the Player got inactive for a longer amount of time seems quite reasonable to me, still happen to find blocked player shops of inactive players, which can be quite annoying sometimes, especially since there isnt a general solution to those either

(it would also prevent mass selling of rare items that become less rare due to recent updates, which could possibly consume a players entire money and stock :l )

I do not think this is a good idea. People like me who are inactive but log in once every 2months still want an opportunity to earn money while they are inactive.

It does not harm anybody if "old" shops are still active

Too detrimental a fix to something that's barely an issue
