:) When Ronan let me write the paragraph about expanding the trading post, I kinda turned it into a wall of text.

Eh, I'm a verbose writer.

Almost complete....just have to make it so we can trade straight through the trading post. Tired of wasting my time finding a person and hopping to other worlds etc... There is no interaction other than a thank you or very little else said during these trades. Please make it so we can trade straight through and not have to meet the person, make our own prices and make it easier to sell little inexpensive items without standing around forever and wasting valuable game time. Put the scammers out of business!

I'm assuming pest control exp rates aren't back to normal since there was nothing on the announcement :(

No, the jobs off that poll haven't been launched yet. But that one's looking good for next week's update along with Christmas.

Sigh, a grand exchange? HOW ORIGINAL .


Since zbez already exists, there was no reason not to make an ingame version of it (basically). I think there's absolutely no reason to dislike this - if you don't want to use it, and I won't as an ironman anyway, it has no negative effect on your game.


I like the trading post, i dislike the grand exchange.

"Now it's here, we'll presently be polling additional features as expansions to it. We'd be happy to offer big changes, such as expanding it into a fully-featured Grand Exchange like RS3 has, if it looks like there's enough support for that."

They need to be careful with their wording. When they poll this stuff, they're also rooting for it to pass otherwise they would not poll it. The grand exchange was designed for a non-free trade system & it simply wouldn't work with the dynamic of oldschool.

What they needed to say was, we can offer something similar to a grand exchange, but not literally the actual Grand Exchange. It's 2007scape for a reason.

EDIT: and yes I know the grand exchange came out in 2007...

­­Should your POH butler remember the last request you made so you don't need to go through as much dialogue to make the same request again?­­
This one isn't out yet right? Can we expect it next week?
You will never get anything for free. Anyone claiming that is trying to scam, lure or hijack you.

^ This. It's not worth going through the trouble of selling inexpensive items as it stands now. I support Trading Post upgraded to Grand Exchange status 100%. (Also, Grand Exchange access in every bank!)

Pros:

1) Convenience – Enough said
2) Vastly Reduce Scammers
3) Potential for CoinShare

Cons:

1) Too much like RS3? (GE came out in 2007?)
2) Limits player interaction (“Thanks”)
3) Economic Fluctuations

Original message details are unavailable.
Alternatively we could offer more conservative changes, such as letting players send Trade requests through the post so you could use the old-school trade screens without having to meet up.

This sounds pretty awesome.
