    Gargoyle's Pickaxes I bought out a week ago on Siege are still listed.

    There are no bugs in this game Tanivar and you shouldn't complain about things that are working just not in the way you want. Need I remind you of your thread?

    Didn't call it a bug, just think it needs the update timer adjusted. I imagine it's working as intended, but in my 'opinion' it's to long. I'm not one to call things that don't work the way I'd like them to bugs if their not actually bugs. Wish others would behave like that. Folks who stop in to find out what UO is all about must get one heck of a bad impression of UO, rants about gadzillions of bugs all over the place in here. Yet I've played since fall of 2000 and somehow missed 99.99% of them.

    These "ghost" items on search result are not only annoying but also disappointing. They're really annoying especially when the item you're looking for is a common item sold in hundreds on vendors (POF's, low-end runics, etc.), need a lot of page flipping to find one that's actually available.
    Just a minor frustration though, I still appreciate vendor search and hope constant improvements made to it.

    Annoying to match a really low price and find out it sold a long time ago ;)

    On Balhae, I can still find in vendor search over 60 items that I removed from several vendors on January 30, 2015. I also dropped the vendors that day, after emptying them, and I let the house fall (July 1st) after I turned off the account that I traded the house to once I closed my shop. I notice today that when I try to get a map for those items, nothing happens. But then again, I can't get a map or even a message that the item is no longer for sale for anything else that shows up in vendor search on Balhae. For all I know every vendor on Balhae is empty or perhaps even deleted at this point! (And yes, I've got the classic client completely patched up and current.)

    The new items won't show up either unless they "refresh the database", the new gifts and such.
