    Ok, so im decoring my new keep moving chests etc...guess what?I forgot to lock a chest down...45 heritage tokens and 76 7th yr tokens *poof* gone...figured i would share that for my friends and foes...

    You do the math...

    Needless to say when i saw a gap where a chest should be my balls scrunched up so tight they was as big as marbles...

    It's easily done, and I think we've all been there, though not with quite such expensive consequences. :(
    There's a line of dialogue in Terry's golf game that comes to mind. After a particularly bad shot the commentator says 'You'd want a hug from your mommy after that one'

    :eek:

    That is truly painful...sorry that happened to you.

    I am so totally paranoid about that...whenever I rearrange my own house or am working on someone else's house before I will log out I go over every container twice and check lockdown/security no matter how tedious it is.

    It is so easy to miss something. It would be nice if there were some way to be notified in your own house when something is not secured before you leave it.

    On Chesapeake once I knew a woman was moving, hid in her house for 2 days, playing almost 24/7 and made away with about 150m in items, back when gold was 12$/per. You got off light.
     
  14. If I'm at all concerned about that I enter customize mode. Anything that isn't locked down deposits under the house sign and I scoop it up.

    Well...there are 2 big problems with that.

    1.) You can't enter customize mode without elven furniture, fountains of life, etc. first being removed. That can often be a bigger pain and risk of loss than simply carefully going over your recently changed area. Also, if you have spent hours using goza mats and chopped add-ons, simply entering custom mode can push all those items into the moving crate.

    2.) Anyone passing by can scoop up what is pushed under the house sign

    Ouch man, I feel your pain.

    I can't count how many times I have wished this game had a rewind button or prayed for a server crash/revert...

    Karma baby... Just go be your usual self and get ahold of Shakaja's account or whatever it is you KOC's do. youll have tons more in no time. =-]. Karma ppl, lovely Karma. And for a final shot, dont tell me about your honest mistakes... Stick to the usual drama. Trying to make yourself look more like a real human instead of your lacky self is just sickening.

    I lost items a long time ago because the server reverted. Now I only use secured chests that have locked down though a server maintenance. It takes 2 days to move stuff but I know that a chest isn't going to decay with my items in it.

    Remember the days when there was no such thing as locking down items or item decay?

    You could drop something behind a tree in the woods and come back a week later and get it.
