    Wow, you can get points from death robes. The way I die that could give me enough points for the dyes. Lol taking pictures during an event promises lots and lots of death robes. ;)

    I tossed a bunch of items the other day and didn't get the message about clean up points until maybe an hour later. Figured it was just a little hicup in the ole system.

    The House trash barrels have been bugged for quite some time. I never trust them to give accurate clean up points. I always go to Luna or brit to trash items that are worth clean up points.

    1) If a trash barrel contains unused commodity deeds the can will not empty.
    2) If your trash barrel was not secured the items probably decayed instead of deleted by the can for points. If you secure your trash barrel you can throw away more than 400 stones at a time.
    3) If you toss stuff in the trash barrel then leave that sub server when the items are deleted you will get the points at a later time when you are back on the subserver they were thrown away on.
    4) If you add items to a trash barrel 1 at a time when you get to 125 it will auto delete and you can continue filling the can without waiting for the timer to empty it.
    5) If you need to throw away a blessed item and it won't let you put it inside a container and throw away the container.

    I thought this too for a while. I eventually figured out, it is the 3 minute delay combined with the sub server you are on, when the trash barrel in your house finally does empty. As near as I can tell, you have to be on the same sub server when the home trash barrel empties, or you do not receive the message until the next time you log in on that sub server, or maybe the next time you log in and go to that sub server. It is something weird like that though.
