    I have a commodity broker in New Mag Tram.

    For weeks now, someone is bidding for my spot, even though it is surrounded by 5, that's right, 5 open spots.

    WTH?!?

    Happened to me once, a long time ago. That's one reason why I won't bother with a stall again.

    Well that's just lameness!

    Perhaps try renting multiple spots spread throughout the island, this way they have to spend extra time and effort to grief you... that normally deters them from continuing

    Sounds like a waste of both time and gold to me; and not workable if you have only have one active account.

    What a Lameness Lamey Griefer! (Not you them)


    Might be worth the effort but if you don't have more then one account then it would't work.... Maybe we could suggest to Messyanna that unless ALL stalls on the island are filled then you cannot bid on a currently occupied one that has stock on it

    Excellent proposal. As long as there is an open stall available, no one should be able to bid on an already occupied one. More players might start using the stalls if the Devs implemented that suggestion.

    Suggestion emailed
    (And no one can complain about prime spots with the vendor search option) :)

    Ok...this might be stupid but. What are the stalls good for? Is there a link that shows what they can sell and do?

    Commodity brokers don't fall into vendor search, unfortunately. Maybe that is something that they need to implement as well.

    I doubt that will happen. They made it clear even before vendor search went live that it would not include the stalls at New Magincia.

    Maybe that's why there is basically nothing for sale on our shard...

    In the stalls? I think the price of doing business using the stalls is the main reason. That system has been a disappointment from the beginning. :(

    I gave up on the bazaar after no one used my banana vendor.

    Given that this is Ashlynn we are talking about, the poor fellow is probably STILL working for her.

    Just think of death as more of a transitional phase. A sort of short holiday if you will.

    Actually, you may be on to something. I rather like that idea... :)

    Well, my vendor was just renewed again, and sure enough, my Troll put in a new bid that I had to match.

    Maybe I should reconsider even having this guy at all, since it is basically just an extra bank for gold sharing.

    Dang. :( Maybe you'd be better off to just place a vendor in your house instead.
