    About the player moving as i said you can just /msg him and you won't need to chase him.
    For 1, if the buyer is searching for a specific item, it would be dumb to show him everything the seller is selling.

    For 2, we'll let Ubisoft decide, though I encourage them to discard offers after the user leaves the world.

    The main point wasn't to avoid spamming, but to avoid greedy BUY+ owners.

    I was a bit lazy so skimmed through all the posts besides the first few.

    I like your idea, but it would COMPLETELY destroy BUY+ worlds(also,fyi, no I don't own any,so don't even be like "Oh, your saying that cause you own this or that). Sure, some of these rich people could have some toning down, but how about the poorer people who own BUY+ worlds? It will hurt them alot.

    Instead, there SHOULD have a slight tax, but not major enough to hurt anyone who wanta ro buy or sell stuff.


    My idea is adding a 100 gem tax for ever hour a single item is being advertised. This timer can be stacked up to 24 hours(paying 2400 gems). It will ensure alot less spam and still provide a good way of getting items.

    In addition, buyers should have a slight tax for accessing the marketplace. A monthly subscription-like service cause be bought in the store for 2000 gems. It would be a consumable that gives you access to the market place.

    Both buying or selling would require "access to the market place".

    Finally, two ways of search for items should be added.

    "Newest items"(the most recent item that is advertised will be put up)

    And

    "Search" (Same function as searching with the Growscan)













    Oh,also, another idea. To prevent spam even more IF it becomes a problem is to make every extra item posted cost +50 more gems per hour.

    Example:
    I post that I'm selling Bricks, 200/wl for 24 hrs (coting 2400 gems)

    I post that I'm also selling dirt for 1 wl each for 1 hour and my Brick advertisement is still up (costing 150 gems)

    I post I'm selling Rocks 50/wl while both brick and dirt advertisements are up for 2 hrs (costing 400 gems)


    I hope you get the idea.
    Let's make posts that count!

    And if what you meant by spam is spam posting offers, then for a given item, the user can only post 1 offer for it.
    And for one given world, only one item can be advertised (meaning a user can't create multiple accounts and put a million offer for chandelier in the same world), offers for other items can be posted by others tho.
    Such a system is meant to be an alternative. For richer players.

    Spamming offers is not the issue, spamming items to sell is the issue. Players have many, many items.

    And would it be that much of an issue? I mean, we're limiting the amount of offers one can post, and the offers do not appear on the front page, but are rather searched for by buyers.

    Default Sure it's a great idea to elminate BUY+ worlds

    Moving the primary way to trade to a single place is not a good idea. Sure Growtopians could go search for the item they desire but it ruins the bargaining aspect of trading. The main way people have been trading so far is through the trade system. Although it's not actually eliminating trading with other players, it basically is.
