  1. The title is pretty self-explanatory. Though I am not sure it is possible... I think this could be useful if the staff wanted promos that people only got for the money, and instead for the holiday it's for. Like the veterans day rose, you add this too it so people can't trade it, sell it, mail it, or buy it. I think this would be very neat.
  2. That sounds like a great idea but i wonder how difficult this is to code.

  3. Very difficult as there are many ways, most mentioned in the OP, but there's Access Chests for one.
  4. You can't stop capitalism......;)
  5. You can now! :p

  6. In this case, you could, but it would be very costly.

  7. Do we really have to make it a rule that it should be kept as something to honor all those who have served in the armed forces, living and dead? I am behind this idea, as I would like them to be held on to, but it might just be too hard to code.

    Frankly, the fact that it has to be suggested for something such as the Remembrance Poppy is sad, and all those who profited financially from the promo should be ashamed of themselves.

  8. Not just for that, but they could use it for many other things

  9. "Everyone who doesn't think like me should be ashamed of who they are."

    For me, buying and selling these promos doesn't relate to any feelings of disrespect toward veterans any country who fought for the safety of their friends and families.

    I bought more than one of the poppies off players who live in countries where there is no Remembrance Day or Veteran's Day. Some probably live in countries where their military history is best forgotten. Players like me just don't attach a great deal of sentiment to a virtual item representing real world soldiers. For some people Veteran's Day isn't a sad or serious holiday at all as they have living veterans in their house or heck, maybe they're hardcore anti-military.

    -1 to the suggestion...because it's an economy server. Also it sounds almost impossible to implement. The item would have to be incapable of entering the inventory of anyone but the owner, but would you be able to leave it in a random chest in the wastelands? Would that chest be unbreakable?
    I wouldn't mind seeing vouchers that can't be resold as EMC giveaways, though.
  10. Why? The soldiers who gave up their lives were protecting our freedoms, correct? If so, would it not be contradicting to create a ban on selling this item, which in turn would be an intrusion on one's economic freedom?
  11. You guys are getting the wrong idea. The poppies are not a promo for personal profits and are a symbol of remembrance. Therefore they should not be sold/bought in any circumstances. You do not need to hoard a bundle of them to show respect.

  12. Nor do i need to stop hoarding them to show respect. Freedom, bro.

    My grandfather fought in World War 2. My grandmother served on the rationing board while he was away. Both of them passed recently and I took time out to remember them while I spent Veteran's Day at a military base with my brother who was graduating boot camp.
    I'm not very patriotic, to be fair, but I don't think my grandparents would have cared what I did with these poppies. They would probably tell me to stop playing video games.

  13. I should not have to be told how I can use my rupees or resources. In fact, I seriously believe that putting restrictions on an item that symbolizes the fight for freedom is more disrespectful than selling or buying it.
  14. The only way this seems possible is if when the promo item is obtained from the chest or shop it is assigned to only you... so other people may not pick it up or interact with it...

    I don't think this 'should' be added however, as this is an 'economy' server... which should allow everything to be bought at least once.
  15. I can't imagine what would happen if you put it in a chest though. It would probably have to be limited to your vault or inventory, which could get annoying for people who have to pay to vault things.
  16. It remembers the living. Memorial Day is to remember. It's still bad. Selling the reminder to honor the veterans is, in my opinion, very wrong. "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." - Matthew 19:24

  17. What about the promo for Easter and Christmas? I assume you are a believer. Aren't those holidays of even greater significance? Can I not sell my "Magical Eggcellent Wand?" What about Labor Day? Are we all disrespecting teachers and nurses? Laborers risk their lives every day for us.

    Like I said, not everyone on this server lives in a country with a good military history. Not everyone does respect the military. Not everyone feels what you feel when they see the poppy, and that should be ok too.
    It's good that you use it as a reminder to feel something good, but the rest of us should be allowed to feel differently without being "ashamed of ourselves."

    Anyway, I don't want promos from EMC that I can't buy or sell. It is a game after all and I don't want a pile of sentimental goods of no particular use or meaning to me.
    I could see this being useful on something like voter's gear or the supporter vouchers dropped at events like the PPP, but I'll leave it to people who know more than me to explain how impossible it likely is.
