  1. Just trying to get a feel for what items people would like to see more of in the auction. More auctions of the same item will lead to lower prices for YOU, the buyer (high supply=>low demand=>low prices). I don't mind auctioning most regular items for below market value (most of the items in my store are already super cheap), so any way I can help, I'm glad to. Most of the items I listed in the poll are things I've seen auctioned a lot recently after going through many pages of old auctions, but most are at least a week or two apart.

    I'm not including promos or other rarer items in this (EMC specific mob drops, staff heads, etc) because most people don't have those, and the people that do usually tend to hold onto them, or sell them at higher than auction prices.
  2. Promos

  3. I'd love to see more promos as well, and there will always be a steady stream of them, but often not in the quantities and prices that the majority of EMC players would be willing to pay for
  4. this is true I myself hate paying retail prices for promos lol
  5. Getting diamonds back down to a reasonable price would be great. Oh, the days when 50r diamonds were expensive.

  6. I remember when diamonds where cheaper then that and orebusters where 20k or less
  7. I'm saying 50r was expensive, 40-45 was the norm.
  8. yeah that's true how old are you on the server?
  9. 879 Days and counting :)
  10. wow that's a lot im nearly at 2 years
  11. Let's try to stay on topic... ;)

    I would definitely like to see diamonds be cheaper, but I really want to see more glass. Paying 7k for a DC of glass in an auction is ridiculous.

  12. How do u know how old u are?
  13. Diamonds for sure, we need someone to flood the market with loads of diamonds and drop the price down a good 15-20r.

    I wish you could still get a DC of glass for 7k :(

  16. Double chest
  17. I clicked on this thread and saw the date... immediately I thought to myself, "who's the wonderful person who bumped this?"
  18. Well, we all make mistakes sometimes. This wasn't the best of bumps, agreed, but sometimes it works to re-use a thread.

    But yah: really pay close attention to the warning below. If it mentions something about the thread being really old then its usually best to leave it and start a new one.
