I love the idea, but can you really "spam" posts without getting silenced? are created channels immune from auto silence and self appointed sherrifs reporting you?
I hope your trade channel takes off! I love the idea of a place for people to go if they're looking to buy/sell something, and I love that it should/could (hopefully will) remove this chatter from local and zone chat.
Cryptic, please help this person out! if auto silence or spam reporting would still be possible in their trade chat, PLEASE find a way to disable it! A dedicated trade channel is a GREAT IDEA!
Is this because it is a place to 'run to' if you can't find what you want on the exchange?
I hope it does well for you. Sad that there is not a way to reach the largest possible willing audience for all legitimate, in game type stuff like advertising of in game items and fleet recruitment. This is my first / only MMO -- I kind of thought that stuff is what ESD zone chat was for and that if you didn't want it you could turn off the channel but leave on the 'local' channel or something for RP?
Have you seen the sad state the exchange is in? Try searching for a stack of crafting materials and you will get pages upon pages of single samples for sell.
A bit self-serving, but for you - and anyone else searching for crafting materials - I always sell in stacks of 10-12 common for 8k. I sell rares individually for 8k. Based on what I've seen it's a very fair price, and now that you know the price range, should be easier for you to find them.
Sometimes I do specials and will put up to 18 in a stack or 2 rare, but it's always for 8k.
