    Just wanted to say thanks to Siege. I spent a lot of time creating a crafter hoping to be of some use to someone. Well, I get to the level where I decide it's time to start making my character pay for himself.

    Wanna know what happens? Get insulted and implied I am stupid. Wow, awesome.

    Welcome to Siege! Welcome newcomers and want it to grow! We like to help newcomers!

    BS.

    Have fun telling each other how wealthy you are.

    Do not let the actions of one or two people stop you from enjoying a great shard. Please remember there are idiots everywhere. Don't let them win by going away!

    Don't let the rude attitude of some very few people here ruin your fun. Give it a little time and you will find one of the best player communities in all of UO.
    I saw you advertise your PoF sale yesterday. If it want to sell out quickly you might wanna consider lowering your price from 50k to 35-40k. You're competing with moongate vendors selling for 35k after all.

    You ran into someone having a very bad day who vented in game or someone may well have thought you were me with renamed characters and sounded off at you. I wanted to see the evil vile beast known as change come to Siege and permit me to bring my prodo deco to Siege from Chessie, didn't prove to be a popular idea, so I'm back to Chessie and dodging malware trying out free shards for the Siege-like experience. As a rule Siege people are, with very rare exception, very decent people. Very resistant to the idea of change, but very decent people. Crafters are needed on Siege, set up your shop and have fun. Just don't advocate <gasp!> change. :)

    Or better yet, don't advocate change that would entirely screw up the one economy that hasn't been screwed up through duping.

    I'm sorry I missed the GC drama, but you should really work on the thickness of your skin. If you can't take getting insulted from time to time (deserved or not) maybe Siege isn't for you.

    That being said, I hope you do stay.

    I'm still sure nonspawning deco would not ruin the economy, just make prices on this deco lower = more available to people. No effect on the price of gold itself.

    If you're going to tell the story, tell it right and mention names, like mine. All I said to you was 50k for pof was a little high and then you got all huffy puffy defensive and made a snide comment back to me that was really unwarranted. We could have had a civil conversation about the prices of your goods but instead you got immediately offended and defensive. And not once did I or anyone else refer to you as stupid or insult you.

    You also won't find another shard with more people willing to help new players here. There seems to be a pattern lately though of supposedly new players coming to Siege, something terrible happens to them, they quickly blame everyone on the shard and call us all liars for claiming we help people and then failing to do so, or insulting them in some way. You got mad in GC, and you disappeared without finishing a conversation which more than likely would have ended totally in your favor. Instead you rage log and run over to stratics to post your Goodbye Cruel Siege thread ???

    I guess if his wares sell, price is ok. I would not pay 50k each, then I rather do a littl BoDs, even when I hate it. I would however pay 25k and spare me the pain of doing BoDs.
    I refust to add 100k to the price for a weapon

    Supply vs demand.

    I will not let anyone else set the price of my goods, if something sells, then the price is correct, if it flies off the vendors, its too low.

    Crafters need to be able to get payed for thier goods - Including vendor fees!
    I will not feel sorry for trying to get Money for my goods, but if i put too high price, it wont sell, and i lose Money......

    So, im new with MY shop and prices will go up and down as a yo-yo , but i doubt someone will Yell at me for it :)

    I won't yell at you, but if i should reply in GC and say "that price might be a bit high", please don't be offended. Thats not an attempt to run you off of the shard. :)

    Maybe you should take your own advice and tell the story right as well.

    After you said they were too high, I said I was merely going off vendor search pricing. Instead of helping out a new player with more accurate pricing, you implied I was stupod by saying, they are on vendors because they are not selling. I am sorry for being new and therefore not having full knowledge of selling prices. Then to rub it in, you just had to tell me how poor I am because you have so many more than me. Which I find insulting.

    Do not decide for me what I find insulting.

    But you carry on being the awesome badass you are.

    Again, you're not telling it correctly. I said those items are on Vendor Search because they aren't selling, which they aren't. I didnt tell you how poor you are, or how rich I am, (which YOU SAID), in fact I'm one of the poorest gold holders on the shard. What I said was, I've bought over 100 pofs and I paid 30k for each and every one of them, you took it as insulting because you immediately went on the defensive when I told you your price was a tad high.

    You see it however you wish.

    When you tell someone who has struggled to get 10k, how you have spent 300k on something I have been working hard to get a couple of, yea, that doesn't come across as helpful.

    I never rage logged, or said I was leaving. I posted my own experience of first entering the marketplace. I tried to sell something, I got a reply I felt was condescending and insulting. Which is funny, because right after me, someone comes on, beg for stuff right off the bat and people are more than willing to help him for free, I actually put in the time and effort, I get treated in a way I find insulting.

    Take it as you will. I will continue to play for myself, others be damned.

    To be honest, no matter the tone or how you took it, the advise/comment was spot on. High priced items on Siege usually sit on vendors for a long time, or are pulled so the owner doesn't have to pay the high fees.

    If you don't like the 30k price, give 50k a try, but it could end up with you having a full vendor taking gold out of your bank every day instead of depositing it. :)

    Here's my final reply on this, do what you want with it. Don't hold the entire shard responsible for something that I said. If you were offended by any of my comments, my apologies for that, wasn't my intention at all. But lumping everyone into one giant group of evil a$$holes is a mistake. Put Garth Grey on ignore in GC if that will make it better, but don't distance yourself from the entire shard with comments like "others be damned".

    As stated, 50k was what I was asking. Instead of implying I am stupid for looking at vendor prices to figure out an asking price, maybe say, that is a tad high, they usually go for xx to xx amount. Or heck, even ask will you take xx amount.

    The players here comes for different cultures. Sometimes you need to ignore the way it is said, because what sounds as an insult to you, may not be meant that way. You may need to grow a little thicker skins.

    @Ole Kvaldsund I would gladly pay 50k for something that I need. Never fails, I need it and cant find it lol. We are a great group of people here and usually willing to help with anything we can. Tell us where your shop is and im sure you will get some business.

    Is it wrong that I hope that all of these strangely similar outrages are the work of some delusional goofball trying to create events to point back to and say "SEE, its not just me!"

    I'm gonna lol when in a year from now (after all his evil plots come to fruition and the shard is finally closed down) when it turns to to have been Kelmo all along.... Slow burn revenge for the years of deeply wounding, sheep jokes. :popcorn:

    1) I don't think 50k is really all that high. I would buy them at that price if I needed them, and I am generally very broke. (sub 500k) 30-40k will sell faster. I'd go 5k (within reason) under whatever you find on vendor search, that way others doing the same thing will find yours the cheapest.

    2) I think you did over react a bit here, but no big deal, I don't think he was trying to be nasty.

    Lets all let bygones be bygones, and welcome to the open market! :D

    Lots of dynamics involved in pricing and sometimes it's a crapshoot. A couple weeks ago I couldn't stock enough POF at 50k. At 30-35k it's not worth the time to me to dig shadow or dull and then use one of the sbods.

    Sometimes you have to walk away and focus on other items to sell. Good luck to ya if you decide to stick around.
