I believe we can agree, that one parameter for success for a Planet is a healthy economy. It really baffles and dissapoints me to see people trying to take advantage of the Auction system on the planets. I am a crafter and the other day I was looking for some simple stones (lyst & iron) in auction. Of course I looked for auctions from Next Island, since that would be most natural - and I want to support people on the planet I'm on before elsewhere + the auction fee is horrible. I did find lyst ... more than 50% overpriced compared to lyst bought on Calypso. It made me look around in auction, and besides a few reasonable sales - most of the things in auction from NI was overpriced. My own needs for stones concerned, I bought them from Calypso, because even with a horrible auction fee it was still cheaper. This really doesn't make sense, and I ask people who are on NI or any other planet for that sake, kindly to be more reasonable when they put items in auction. The markup should not rise the normal markup. In the end people wont buy the goods in the auction on NI, but go back to calypso to buy everything cheaper - and the question is: will they be back up? Crafting is one of the things that makes the economy running. Being able to buy crafting material is a must as a crafter. To make crafters interested in staying on NI is through the ability to buy material directly from the planet citizens. We teach crafters (and others) to use the auction by selling our items in there and for a 'normal' price. Using the auctions will make things easier for all of us - not all of us can stand around and try to sell to the little amount of people on NI all the time. If this unfortunate trend to sell oveprice on auction is not stopped, the economy on some planets will fail - because people will kill it with greed... and that would be stupid, misunderstood and such a shame, really.
