Trading System

Recommended Posts

what if there is a better trading system in our forum that will make the customer convenient when selling or bidding?
a trading system that wont confuse the bidders, viewers, and the seller. here's how this system works.

1. seller starts a new trading system.
2. seller choose a trading category, selling, buying, or bidding.
3. pick a category(creature, item, avatar, etc.)
4. if picked category = creature, display want to (sell or buy or bid) creature info: name, age, tokens, heat stored, selling price, buying price, or bidding price.

that's my quick algorithm of trading system. I know it doesn't have enough information to elaborate but I showed you the logic on how will the system run.
this system is not like our forum trading system it has its own user interface in the forum. yeah it's kinda new level of trading system in the forum and let's talk about someday the secured in-game trading system.

The Logic is perfectly sound, But how does the system know when an ofer is "better" or not? people value different things differently.

The system works fine if people use it correctly.

I kinda like the idea... mostly because I don't think that the game should be played on the forum.

As for Chewett's reasoning about how to decide which offer is better, well that would be an easy fix. Allow the creator of the trading system the ability to reject offers and let others see that the offer has been rejected.

you are absolutely correct. we still can expand this idea that's why I post it here. what I want to happen is to suggest everyone's idea to expand this system into a more useful and easy to use system.

The other question would be what to extend this too. Are credits allowed to be traded because there is a large quantity of players who sell items via credits and then you have to have a way for people to say what kind of offer they are looking for.

there will be an option if they want to sell they're items via credits.

you go to forum create a thread for your offer then people will offer, bid, etc. then you go back to the trading system and find the customer or they will find you.

In my opinion, that trading system could have a voting function (similar to this forum's vote up or down function) which would help people in ranking each other (by offers they have for each other). This info shows how much good or bad offers someone gives generally. It's just an idea, further details can be added to it.

Oh, and it could be a 1-5 ranking instead of simply voting up/down. Edited by Prince Lewas

This would be a huge amount of work to create a function that replaces an existing, working system.

I'd rather see the effort go to improving/upgrading/filling out the game itself.
