people have reported that at least some of them are bound, and recently at that

Yeah, old ones weren't bound but any new ones are. Whatever is on the exchange now is gone once it's all bought and used.

Well, there's certainly a "can use"/"can't use" flag of some sort, can't they just give us a filter like that? Doesn't matter if it affects everything either, it could be a universal button for all things on the exchange.

Call me overly simplistic, but wouldn't all the headaches related to the absurdity of the exchange disappear by making Doffs (and Boffs) faction neutral?

I can see rank and title being a bit of an annoyance, but if that display is modified to show from the perspective of the player (IE: Klingon players would see Klingon ranks, Fed players would see Fed ranks, etc.) that wouldn't necessarily be an obstacle.

not looking forward to this in the least.
adding a faction filter for doffs would help, but the entire issue could be eliminated by having non-faction DOFFs jot show up in searches in the first place
as it turns out, an intrepid would lose a fight with a connie.
and thats canon.

I'm told that our Engineers are working on a fix for this, so that if an item (such as a Doff) is faction-restricted, it will no longer appear on the Exchange for a player that doesn't meet the item's requirements.

About-friggin time!!!

Was searching for an appropriate Bridge Officer Candidate on the Exchange (as FED) yesterday. First 3 pages (on Very Rare quality) were nothing BUT KDF officers. All for the low-low price of 10-20 Energy Credits each.

While your working on fixes for the Exchange, can you please make it so you can't post an item at a lower cost than "vendor value" ?

BOFFs don't have an EC vendor value though, same with tons of other sellable items

it's still an interesting idea though

Then the solution is to ADD an EC value to BOffs. I've noticed they do have a Dilithium value thou, but I have no idea how to sell them for Dilithium.
