    That is price manipulation.
    We will have 1AUD at 201x 57 ped so ca 200 times higher as is normally 1 AUD and all future buyers and sellers will have it in auction history
    Well, it just compensates for earlier accidental 'manipulation' to the downside. So it'd correct the average if anything.

    Shares can be bought at the offer price, if that’s what someone has offered then that’s what they’ve stated they’re willing to pay.

    We’ve been round this 100’s of times though, the auction was not designed to deal with ‘zero’ ped items (mainly Deeds). Errors can occur on other stuff with high markup, but usually such items are sold as single items. It’s when multiple deeds are sold at once, mistakes often happen.

    I generally view it as the person that owns the deeds has likely deposited to buy them, those that trade in them are generally vultures hovering around looking for victims. I’ve often felt that EU promotes opportunists, invites them in at times. Such a lovely community we have.

    Anyway whatever. MA obviously do not want to create a system that “offers” market rate maybe because that implies such items have value, when the purpose of zero priced deed was to limit their business exposure to zero. In essence they have no capital value, only perceived value.

    Onwards and upwards.

    This petition has nothing to do with market rate, value, markup or real life value of anything.

    This petition's only purpose is to stop order zombies to capitalize on other people's mistakes, as simple as that. It is easy to do, easy to implement and makes perfect sense.

    The current system is responsible for many people cashing out and leaving, of which I know two cases in a personal way (one of them was my disciple).

    Crystal clear.

    Reading through this thread, it seems obvious who abuses the mechanic to snatch up CLDs on the cheap.

    The OP's idea is fantastic. I'll sign.

    If you put an order for 900 ped on a CLD, and someone accidently posts it for 190 instead of 1900. The system should force the 900 ped payment.

    Signed. This is like an open trap which should have been plugged already as soon as seen.

    What about the auction low opening bid warning? It still doesn't work properly for normal items, though it used to give more false positives. Does it do anything here?

    2. If you disagree, go to 1.

    Hmm months go by, not a word from anyone remotely official.

    I guess this thread will get forgotten until the next auction fuckup takes place.

    i disagree that orders should pay more than what was set as buyout value anyways.

    if it's not an order taking that BO but a quick person at auction, you can't rip the ped difference off his card either.

    we all know mistakes happen too often, so better triplecheck what you're doing and try not to be drunk when doing business. in case a mistake happens anyway, try to sort it out and hope for the best. but buyout means buyout, simple as that!

    as an alternative i can imagine the possibility to undo an auction for 1k ped, like you can restore an accidentially tt'ed item.

    Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations

    But this proposal is for orders, not for quick people.

    I didn't read further into your post.
