I've just designed and built a plat shop that can sell items even when I'm offline, I'm testing out how well this works.
 
Mainly it's putting plat items inside public boxes, behind fee doors.
 
1 key element I had with the thanks of Madman's advice, is to add in is the use of TV switches. If you buy the items inside the rooms, TURN on the TV to signal you bought the item. So that other players visiting as potential customers, wont try to open fee doors just to find to their sadness the item is already gone!
 
Now, assuming you READ what I just said about responsibly using the TVs. Feel free to visit the shop at /tele platinum.

I hope this idea benefits 8 bit mmo players, I can already see benefits like for starters it might free up the game from 'merchants' spamming our chat with their "selling plat at tele blah blah blah" messages! XD

This sounds like a good idea!

also expensive though at least 6p of setup per item for sale

 

that being said i like the concept, though im still hopeful for an actual player to player shop function/block in the future

Is this idea troll-proof? This is a pretty good idea.

With input from Madman I already checked out potential avenues for trolling, and I had to redesign things a few times in order for it to work, but as it stands now, I can't find anymore exploits. So I'm waiting to see if any turn up.

Well tbh the seller could just put nothing in the box, or a buyer could intentionally or accidentally not switch the TV.
 
 
I think exchange boxes would be a good way to make this troll-proof.

Already suggested exchange boxes on suggestion box. Beta is no troll, so he will leave the item and if u use the fee door and find no item beta will refund.

His concerns are legit, after all, other players might build shops using the same design I'm showing now but with no intentions of selling any items to other players.

As for keeping myself trusted, I might consider putting a little more organisation into the running of platinum. I want to give other "shop_keepers" ways of working together to maintain the store integrity.

1st - Possibly having a safe in place, so that if some one DOES need a refund after paying at a fee door but getting no item (may ask player to upload screenshot of their inventory to prove it), and if the owner of the fee door is offline, but one of the other shop keepers is around, then they can refund the player. Might even consult some mods on whether they'd help with an idea like this.
2nd - I'm also considering if the shop became popular enough and starts to get crowded, I may do an "expand", and hand regions off to other shop keepers, turning a shop into a supermarket! Or a mall... Whichever looks more fitting X)

Sadly permanent citizenship is currently revoked.
 
Due to multiple accounts of thiefs stealing item's from other players rooms in the store.
 
I'm currently suspecting it is down to a citizen using his/her home stone to jump into rooms.
 
In the meanwhile, if you wish to trade inside this area, you will have to ask me, or a vice mayor. Bring your own fee doors as usual and if we're missing a box, you'll have to provide your own as well.
 
I only have thieves to blame for this. Until we can fix the integrity of platinum I need to minimize the potential damage players are taking as much as I can.

List of names I removed from platinum
xerp, sapphirecoyote, thedarknessfury, pygmypi, freeze54, blockbit, chris_ramos, value, adam567, setk, starmanfan, legobox, pikachu789

I'm sorry to many of you as I know you well enough to know you wouldn't be responsible for causing this. I'm just acting in impartial 'take no chances' mode.

Edit - Oh, and temporarily we are closing platinum to rebuild door setups, we're swapping from TV to chicken (get hurt by kittykat and then eat chicken to get over block on other side of door), that way we'll remove these cases of players NOT using the TV.

Any traders whose stuff is still in here, can you please remove it by Monday?

I think you could trust Value, Xerp, and Sapph, because they're mods and you must be very well trusted to be a mod. I wouldn't be too surprised if Blockbit did it since he has scammed b4, but you never know

I'm friends with all of those mods. Am i trustworthy xD? I think it was adam, freeze, or starman. those are the prime suspects for me.

What if you don't get hurt by the kittycat?

I'm considering calling a "vote", I will ask for "candidates" who WISH to become vice mayors of platinum.
 
Vice mayors are pretty much players we can count on to keep platinum running. I'd want them to be motivated and trustworthy by public eye.
If traders want to put items up for sale in platinum, they ask the vice mayors to temporarily add them as citizens to platinum so they can put their items on display, the vice will remove them after they've put up their display.
If items have sold they pick up the door and sign to free that room up for the next trader wishing to use that room. Trader gets the items put back in their inventory for later and can place the door down and open it to get their profit, no gold lost!
They also get a few other "odd jobs" from time to time that I may give them depending on what's going on or what needs doing to keep platinum running smoothly.
 
I've been happy with Black_Jack, ShadowOfLight and Madman's help so far, but I would like to start putting it up for all you players to decide for yourselves who you can trust as vice mayors in platinum, to me this is just an "experiment", I have to admit I'm usually very removed from talking to people and disinterested in running a shop! I'm only here long enough to make this design WORK! But I want to leave it into the hands of players willing and trustworthy to look after it.

How is this vote going to go? Is there going to be a separate thread, or is the vote going to be held here?

 

Also, I would like you to take into account the fact that integrity =/= popularity.

 

Anyway, feel free to add me to your polls when it starts!

 

I nominate Pikachu789 as a vice mayor because so far, I have never seen him do anything questionable so far. So far...

I would be willing to offer my services, as a vice. Also, you could have officials to just occasionally check up on things, and return items, if something has sold.



List of names I removed from platinum
xerp, sapphirecoyote, thedarknessfury,
pygmypi, freeze54, blockbit, chris_ramos, value, adam567, setk, starmanfan, legobox, pikachu789

 

From the list, I can say any mods would not be thieves. I would never steal. Pika doesn't seem like the stealing kind. Pyg is sarcastic and annoying alot of the time, but he wouldn't steal... I think.... Legobox may make useless posts, but he would not steal. Blockbit could possibly have scammed in the past, but there is no evidence, I don't think it was him. Dark is newer, but he seems good to me, I don't think he would've stolen. Starman seems very unlikely to have stolen from platinum, he is really friendly... Chris is often brash and likes to start fights.. I can't rule him out. Freeze54 and adam567 are complete wildcards, and the most likely to have stolen the items. I would say for one thing, no new player or player without any kind of record should be allowed to trade in platinum. That is the main precaution that needed to be considered when adding sellers. This was the major mistake, and most likely the reason the thefts occurred.


Never forget the friends you've made, and the memories you've had.
