Gold sink / sinks

    So people want less gold out in world well here are some gold sinks...

    1. Make gold Heavy again.
    10k no matter what your STR is. YES 10k THAT'S IT!

    2. A vendor that will take LARGE amounts of gold 10 1mil checks. Vendor name "The antiquities dealer", she will give you a ticket that when you double click will give you a Unique NEW rare DECOR ONLY item perhaps wearable.

    3. Tax the people that Collect vendor rent! Poor renters pay rent and tax on items in vendor! Might as well get those people that charge 300k rent a week!

    4. Make it so if you drop large amounts of money in a collection box it will fund something ingame... Rebuilding magincia

    5. Make a math equation with vendor pricing based of a players money on account. Vendors notice the guy walking to there shop in Amazing threads so they up there prices. Yet the guy that's scraping by they give a fair deal to.

    6. Make durability a little less (i know the crap i will get for this). With powder of fort i have yet to have 1 item even break and iv played for 10 years!

    7. Make real estate around a town (cough luna cough) or the tokuno town have a fixed tax for housing.

    Well that's lucky number 7 ill stop there. I know some people will totally hate these ideas, but i think it will be the 10% with the large amounts of money. I have a feeling if even 2 of any of these ideas where taking, you would see gold not running so rampant. An over all easier time for a new player just joining this world.

    I am personally not fond of any of these ideas.

    1.) People DUPE checks. This isn't going to stop the gold coming in game.
    2.) What? I guess I'm not totally clear about this idea. You'd drop 1 mil checks on an NPC and get some kind of 'rare' item?
    3.) People already pay tons in vendor fees (I probably pay 1 mil a week + placement fees).
    4.) That is already possible.
    5.) Again, what? Why should what I already have make my vendor fees go up? That doesn't even make sense.
    6.) No. POF is already expensive enough. I have broke several weapons and had other players who were fixing them ruin it. Just, no. I spend a lot on my weps as is.
    7.) As someone who lives in Tokuno, I can say that just because you have a Zento hous does not mean you make much of a profit. My buddy makes more gold in one week on his Luna Vendor than he has in 6 months on his Zento vendor, just because of location and lack of customers and says he's probably paid more in vendor fees than what he has made on that vendor (and these are very good items that are cheaper than Luna).

    Taxes = not fun = everyone quits = your MMO doesn't make enough money = your MMO goes bankrupt = you are out of a job.

    They will never add taxes to UO.
