    I just want to make everyone aware of an issue I experienced with gold on my vendor in excess of one billion. The vendor expired and went to the house sign. When I tried to reclaim the vendor, the gold was deleted. I only received the items on the vendor but the gold itself did not go into my bank account. The vendor is no longer available to reclaim from the house sign either, as I did receive the items on the vendor just not the gold. I did some testing on TC and verified that cancelling a vendor with greater than one billion gold is the issue. I believe it is because we can only withdraw 999,999,999 gold at one time, so when the gold amount is greater than that and it is attempted to be retrieved all at once (as is the case with reclaiming a cancelled vendor) it is lost.

    I was successfully able to retrieve the gold a cancelled vendor who had less than a billion so this issue is only for vendors cancelled with greater than one billion.

    @Kyronix can you check this out?

    Tested this on TC, confirmed you do lose the gold/plat when you have a billion or over, that SUCKS!! Thanks for the heads up.
