Relatively ancient and inactive

Make it fair/predictable. I don't see why someone who checked the store at the right time gets it cheaply instantly, while someone else has to either pay more or wait for an extended period of time.

The reason for static prices is fairness. That for random is?

Also, you doodz promised other skins. What the hell.

There are other skins. You guys just can't see them yet, I guess. I've been stuck on Carbonite for over a month now.

Give a good reason why we should have a store with static items.

Read my post. I even boxed it with [encase] tags.

I'm with Aristo on all counts. The randomization is completely and totally worthless, as is the "stock" system.

Because then it's a gamble. Do you wait for the item to become even cheaper or do you buy now?
Gambling is a game, and minerals are a game. Generally it makes minerals less boring.

Give a good reason why we should have a store with static items.
Because it gives people a clear and focused goal. If the prices are randomized, then people are going to just wait for the cheapest deals, thus people won't be buying items nearly as often, and people have a less concise goal to achieve.

What gives more incentive to contribute to SEN: I need 200 minerals for a signature, and I want a signature!! or: I have 100 minerals and I want a signature; I'm going to wait until I can get a good deal at the store.

Since people are going to be waiting for the cheapest prices, the chances of being able to buy an item are cut in half, and the store's activity is thus going to be cut in half.

I say it would be more fun and meaningful to have all the available items static and in a large list, categorized by price or function -I don't care.

I like the stock idea for rare items like name color, custom smilie, Excaliban Trophy, etc.

People will still get them eventually, only delayed by a couple of days. Rarity should be restricted by a static price, not some PRNG's whim.

You used the {URL} code for that. What payne is saying is that posting a link without the URL tag posts it as a link anyway. That is not the case for links in [ENCASE} tags.

Whenever I try to post a News in the Portal News, I get a 404 error.

Can't seem to find the page you're looking for, sorry.

There are a few different ways this could've happened.

* You may have clicked on a bad link on another page. Maybe someone linked to a page that doesn't exist.
* Perhaps you mistyped the URL when entering it into your browser. You may have also edited the URL manually; some of our members seem to think they can find hidden pages on the site by doing that. Hah! As if.
* It could be some other weird error I can't even think of.

In any case, you can click here to go to SEN's home page. If you'd like to report the error, please do so at the forums; note, however, that you need an account to post there.

Oh didn't read your big post before, sorry.

The problem is you guys don't see it as a game. You're making this too serious. Like a business like amazon. Where everything has fixed prices, and is always in stock. Shopping via amazon is surely very fun... No it isn't. It's just convenient. 'Cause you buy things you actually have use for. Does a shoutbox color have a use? No. It's just for fun. (And before you say it: Even though avatar+ has a use it's still not changing anything you do at SEN. It's really just for fun.)
The SEN store is more comparable to a flea market where you stroll over every now and then and check for interesting things. Granted there's too few items right now to convey that feeling, but still that's the general idea. It's more fun to check the store every now and then and when you see a good deal you're happy and if not you just come back another day. It's not like it's gonna run away or like you really need the items offered.
Also working towards a goal would encourage spam. The idea is to just relax, post like you always do and when you get the opportunity you spend your wealth.

Of course, it's difficult for you to sound convincing, as someone with a custom smiley, name color, signature, title, and plentiful avatar/PM space, already possessing everything that is a part of your definition of "fun".

Like the fact that having the mineral system itself doesn't.

Why do I always have to either repeat myself or shoutbox spam to get a simple "yes, that is doable/we are working on it/it's listed for future plans", or "no, you're stupid"? Are quick, 15-second responses too much to ask? Honestly, you guys have time to debate over how the store works, but no time to tell me that it's either in planning, in execution, or not gonna happen at this time?

Oh yes, this reminds me of another glitch.

See the links in payne's post?

It tries to redirect you to the correct page and jump to the post in question. However, this thread has deleted posts. SEN doesn't consider the deleted posts as "nonexistent" when computing the page number to jump to. So if, say, around 40 posts were deleted, and you linked to a post on page 47, you would get redirected to page 49 instead. A problem when linking to posts in a large topic that was moderated.

I have said on several occasions that every item in use and in your inventory should have been deleted to have a fresh start for everyone. It may be difficult for you to believe but I earned all these items through helpful posting and with the same store and I was always happy when I could add another item to my collection. I was never bothered by fluctuating prices. On the contrary! I saw it as a chance to get my item earlier than with fixed prices which usually worked out. So I don't understand why you don't appreciate the chance to get items cheaper, too.

I think you missed my point. I wasn't saying that the SEN store is inconvenient, it's simply a different system. I still like the comparison with a flea market. Sure, it might be less convenient than going to a store and buying a vase for a fixed price when you know they have what you like, but you can't call a flea market where you're looking for something interesting inconvenient. Well, actually, I'm sure some do, but those simply do not belong there. Those people should just press on "disable fun" and get their free sig and be happy until the end of days. Unfortunately, despite quite a few voices demanding the return of "disable fun", there's no word if or when it will return. Still I'm sure it will, eventually.

Yes, we knew it would encourage some SENners to post more than they normally would, but we love minerals so we decided that by taking appropriate measures we can keep the spam to a minimum and maybe even encourage productivity. No reason to alter regulations in a way that could make people spam more.

I remember a bug about the number of posts displayed per page too.

PROTIP: [[b][/b]encase] = [encase]

Usability problem for Dev to fix!
On the Forum Index, the links in the "Last Post" column lead to the earliest unread post. In the actual subforum, the links in that column lead to the last post. (Also, the "Unread" icon on subforums is shoved waaay on the other side and made real small, so it's tricky to find.)

Perhaps textual links to the last post and the earliest unread post can both be shown at all times? Not sure, though, just thinking off the top of my head right now.

Devourer just has to upload the better smilie and that is fixed. Simple as that.

Eh I was in a hurry and didn't really care much at all about how it looked considering you guys still got the idea.

I'd like to say that I love the Recent Posts in the forum Portal <3

I also want to just throw some ideas out there.

Can Mods have the ability to mark questions in certain forums as
Solved inside brackets and Pendingin brackets also. It's just to keep things organized. I also think that creating wikis from asked questions would be a great idea, so that the first post can be updated with a link to the wiki article.
