Other than that...love it. Bought myself a bunch of stuff on the zen-store which would have taken me 2-3 times as long a few months ago.
The only point to having more than the current winning-bid price displayed for each side is to get a sense of which way the preponderance of supply is nudging the market.

I'm just about out of C-store stuff that I really want to buy. I mean, I cold probably casually grind up a Vesta set in this dil economy, but I don't want one. Maybe start another KDF char and use the Nausicaan ships or Orion ones...

Or someone with lots of money and little time. Incidentally that is the kind of customer that F2P MMOs love to have. Someone who places a high value on their free time and is not adverse to spending lavishly on their hobbies. Not to mention the appreciation they deservedly get from their fleet if they dump it all into the starbase.

Sadly, players that are neither whales not zero cash F2P'ers are the ones that will be unsatisfied with the current system. Because value is relative and they find themselves on teh wrong side of a constantly moving curve. To all such players the only advice anyone can give you is to transition to full F2P mode and simply accept the game offers too little value to YOU for what you used to pay... but its still a GREAT value if you aren't paying for it at all.

I think the better solution would be for you to get over the fact that the lines of supply and demand determine the price of Zen here!
They don't

A group of speculators (numbering in the dozens not the thousands) are scamming the hell out of the exchange

This is why it needs to be FIXED
iron clad and locked down

OR auto convert any stockpile of Dilith over 1 million into zen at the going rate and any stockpile of Zen over 20,000 into dilith at the going rate


OR allow a person to EITHER buy or sell zen in any 48 hour period

or both such options

or perhaps a 20% tax on profits

Its a bad thing to do, and without any proof.

What would this 20% tax on Profits be used for after it's collected?

Can this tax be payed once for all annual profits? So that if we take a loss at some point we will be able to write said losses off?

No. That defeats the purpose.

The prices wouldn't be where they are if people weren't buying at those prices. If its too expensive for you, just don't buy. When enough people stop buying, supply goes up and dilithium value drops.
