10 seconds cool down needed
 
there needs to be a ten second cool down when posting things on the exchange to sell, i stupidly pressed the wrong button and sold 40 lock box keys for 1.3 million ec, they sold that fast it didnt even apper in my list of item for sale, there needs to be a ten second gap inbetween when you press sell and when it shows on the exchange so people have time to correct a mistake

That was an awsome buy! Thanks for the keys man.:D

well... If we have a small cooldown between searches, another small cooldown between posting and selling doesn't seems bad

The whole exchange needs an overhaul. As it stands the bloody thing is piles of bandages with a shattered skeleton under it.

That's because the exchange was made in china. :P

As much as I never miss a chance to malign the evils of Chinese industry, this criticism is not actually fair.

In fact I do know that it was a Chinese dev who fixed the problem with the doff commendation ranks (and I also know that he was only allowed to do so over the recalcitrance of the stateside staff who didn't want to admit they couldn't).

I also know that some of the more unsightly ships (e.g., the Chimera) were designed by Chinese artists recently hired on at the expense of Westerners. So if you want to blame them for anything, blame them for that.

But the exchange was written before PWE took control, by American devs. Nothing to do with underpaid labor from everyone's favorite military dictatorship.

Fwiw, I personally respect Chinese people and wish their country well. This is also why I hope they succeed in eventually overthrowing their evil government and replacing it with something that offers them a chance at a better future. The relationship of China to the West these days is one of mutual exploitation of both the Chinese and Western peoples for the benefit of a wealthy elite, and neither Western consumers or underpaid Chinese workers deserve blame for that.

Erm... the Chimera is very nearly identical to what an American artist submitted for the DTNE contest, and we do know which dev was responsible for the only touch Cryptic put on it (the moving parts), and he was with the game before PWE. It sure is ugly, but that's good old home grown certified organic ugly.

I would like to see the exchange go to an eBay type auction house. An item will stay for sale for seven days, then the owned can get offers from people. The only problem is a person send an offer for one EC. Should have a minimum reserve set by the owner. This also could allow trades. The money offered should be put in an limbo state unless retracted.

No, a million times no.

No, no, no, no no.

The exchange is fine the way it is.
