PLEASE READ: Huge Gold Problem!

Postby Chris » Fri Feb 27, 2004 6:23 pm

You're probably all aware that high interest rates at the bank have made just about every member a millionaire.

Well, there is a slight problem.

Gold is an important part of the RPG system... everyone's got too much - and now that interest rates are lower, new members will never catch up!

What I propose is this: when the RPG mod is complete, everyone will have their gold and items removed. Afterwards, I will use a script that gives everyone the correct amount of gold based on their number of posts.

I will then ensure that Cyrus_Soulfire gets the Dual Blade back (as that is a key item in the forum RPG).


Are you all happy if I do this? Keeping millions of gold to yourself will just spoil the aim and point of the RPG (and the only reason I would need your items back is to make them equipable for battles).

:D

Eh. I didn't have much money to begin with... Just curious, though: Are you going to lower the cost of certain items then?

When the RPG system is installed, equippable items will appear and replace the old ones. The whole shop will be overhauled.

Is there a specific date at which you will reset the gold?

Don't worry! You'll get the amount of money you should have by the number of posts you have.

Basically, all I am doing is getting rid of the millions of gold that built up through high bank interest. That money wasn't worked for. :)

That makes sense. But just one question. What about all the lottery winners? Is that gold going to be paid back , or is that all gone as well?
Follow your dreams, you never know where they'll lead you.

Being defeated is only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanant.

I'm afraid we will, but multiple lottery ticket buying is allowed again.
