Reading various threads the last few days got me to wondering why there are so many empty shops around Sosaria these days. Granted, the population is down considerably from what it once was, but could lack of useful/exciting in-game shopping opportunities be part of the reason? Is it a bit of a vicious circle, i.e., fewer players leads to fewer shops, and then fewer shops leads to even fewer players, etc.? In any event, I put on my thinking cap and tried to remember all the different reasons I've heard in the last year or so that people (including myself) give for no longer running a shop and thought it might be interesting to see which ones are the most common culprits behind closed shops or shops that have nothing to sell. This poll is multiple choice, so pick whichever reasons fit your experience and definitely feel free to post your comments with additional reasons why you no longer bother with running a shop and/or are on the verge of closing one.
