    I think you are probably misinterpreting the announcement. I suspect it simply means that the Medusa buyer will not have to pay rent in order to hold the properties, but if someone buys and uses one they will have to pay rent as usual.

    It's a typically vague statement which could use some clarification.

    of course it would be reasonable that all would be the same for all apartments.

    In dutch we say: "Everyone is same for the law" Meaning, what goes for one, should also go for another.

    It would be nice if those appartments are rent free, but then all should be. Or the opposite: all appartments pay rent, only in this case (part of) the rent would go to the island owner. Which would make a bid on those islands even more attractive.

    Without a doubt, get rid of the fees.

    It will provide a boost to shops, keep things fair and even,
    solve the problem of some shops being empty (at least, help a lot).

    I imagine any money ma/fpc earn from rents must be fairly low anyway, that
    could be offset by the economy picking up and more people shopping/selling.

    Even if these new shops were meant to have fees - I think this change is needed to help
    the economy.

    I think this would help everyone.

    yes, get rid of the fees please. Would actually help the economy massively I suspect as a lot of shops that are unused would now get some use.

    I agree with oleg, the statement made by MA/FPC is very vague and mis-understandable

    However if the plan IS to charge no fees on medusa, I totally agree with the majority in saying that everybodys fees should be abolished

    hmm I certainly like the idea of no shop fee... then again everyone who owns a booth in the current system is fucked. Basicaly a booth is a downgraded shop but its big + has allways been that they are tax free. Changing the system and thus nerfing the booth might create a bigger havoc than introducing something completely new without taxes because that will not affect previous booth/shop owners.

    Now, as a long term shop owner (and apartment owner) this really annoys me when a unilateral change can be made without taking in to account existing infrastructure. Basically, if these new shops and apartments are going to be RENT FREE then i believe that ALL existing shops and apartments should retrospectively be made RENT FREE from the same date as these new ones are opened up for public purchase, regardless of the number of item points they have.

    So, what are the thoughts of the rest of the community? please vote on the poll and/or post to let us (the community) and FPC know what you think about this. Please try to make your comments constructive.
