  2. Yup, I get that question a lot. We're just launching, but here is the concept.

    "CO-OP" is just short for cooperative - a jointly operated commercial enterprise that produces and distributes goods.

    CO-OP is a good idea. We know that some ppl like to mine / farm / hunt different things. CO-OP allows us to pool the collective talents of our neighbors and concentrate it upon one focal point.

    For example: if you saw what kilmannan is doing at SMP7 with his Arab Marketplace, you can compare it to that in that there are several players actually participating simultaneously in the selling of goods at the shop.

    Difference: 3883 does not charge for spots at the shop. Our interest is not in profit or recovery of any initial investment in the shop. It is, rather, to provide a wide spread of goods, and to ensure supply levels remain high as consistantly as the Empire Shop;).

    Participants: This is most important to understanding the operation - participant vendors are not just suppliers or workers. They stock, they set their own prices, and they negotiate sales/deals entirely of their own accord. Also, they are not selling through the shop and they aren't expected to "share" any of their profits with shop owners. This means that they own their chests. They receive payment from sales directly, just as they would on their own plot. All participants in the CO-OP are free to come and go at will. We do screen new participants, only to ensure the right "mix" of goods is maintained. This screening is based upon (1) space available (2) what a player intends to provide the shop, and (3) the ability to maintain stock levels.

  3. Is there people who have different levels?
  4. I have to say this is one of my favorite and go-to shops on smp2.

  5. absolutely not. this would be against the spirit and core concept of the project. Nobody takes precedence over any other shop owner. In fact, in the CO-OP's interest, if any one participant were to demonstrate clearly and consistently that they could remain stocked better than any other participant for an item, we would negotiate amongst one another to see that the participant who can best supply the shop would have the spot or a spot selling that item.

    This doesn't necessarily mean exclusion. If, in this circumstance, somebody turns over/swaps shops, they would continue on with whatever other shops they have but just sell items to the other shop, see? As an equal partnership, it is in the best interest of everybody for me or any other participant to give up a spot in favor of the better supplier. That goes for everybody... I'm not personally holding shops on items I don't regularly supply either.
