# 1 Box Safeguards
08-07-2012, 11:58 PM
We need safeguards when it comes to lockboxes and reward boxes (like console boxes).

Last week when I was moving stuff within the bank, during the heavy server lag issues. Well somehow when I was moving one of these Console boxes (no double clicking, no right click - open), the box opened up. I contacted CSR and they refused to help.


This gave me reason to post here in asking Cryptic / PW NEEDS to make box safeguards that we don't open these things by moving them around in our inventory. Or accidentally opening with an inadvertant double click or like me, them opening up in high-lag situations. These reward boxes should open by a safer method like opening.

Heh. I feel your pain. My mouse turns a click into a double-click when its battery is dying, which once gave me a ground pet I didn't want.

On balance, though, I think a confirmation dialogue would be more annoying for more people than the very rare accidental opening.

I have a boxed D'Kora in my inventory. With my tremour, every time I touch it, I get horrified because I don;t want it and I'm trying to sell it.

I;d rather have the confirmation popup.

Of course now that I;ve weighed in, that probably means we won;t get it.

It's listed for 88m which is what I paid for it.

Only difference is, confirming when you don't need it to confirm doesn't hurt. Not confirming when you do need it does. So a confirmation would be nice.
