Hey there,

 

Title says it all. I'm creating this topic specifically for the Neocodex management team in order to request for members or at least advanced members, to be allowed to manually adjust item prices in the database. If this might cause too much of an issue with conflicting sources and people trolling, then perhaps we could create a topic board where certain members who are active on Neocodex still to be granted these useful admin powers.

 

I would like to nominate myself! Hahaha. In all seriousness, I am still active on Neocodex and am constantly having issues where the ABer purchases items that have far less value that reflected in the item database. I don't have an issue with items being priced under their actually profit; I'm not lazy and I can do the adjustments myself. Unfortunately, the ABer doesn't have an exclusion option to take out items that I don't want and the program is often found buying sets of 10 or more items that are actually way less profitable. My example will be the Blue Lupe Paw Lolly, listed in the item database as ~13k NP and in actuality, sells for maybe ~1.6k-1.9k if that. While I still gain a profit, it's rarity and market saturation are both such that it makes it quite difficult to sell and would prefer if the ABer does not buy said item.

 

What are your thoughts? Could we allow item database input powers to be given to a select few? Any mods/managers can comment on this?

I believe you need 500 posts to be able to adjust prices manually for items worth 100k+. As for items worth less than 100k, it is not possible to adjust those prices. I have repeatedly begged Waser Lave to be able to because of the issue you brought up, bu apparently the algorithm for pricing would be messed up if people started adjusting those. The price listed on the item database is not necessarily the lowest price, it's more of an average which is why there is a discrepancy.

I've been having issues with a full shop, so I've been increasing my profit margin to try to balance out purchases vs sales.

 

Also the whole UB concept might need a biiiiiit of an overhaul now that we can put stuff into our shops up to 999,999?

Keep the same system, but bump the 100K to 1 million to adjust for the Shop Wizard Changes.

Also the Shop pricer won't handle 100k+, but I might be okay with handling those ones manually anyway.....

I've offered to do this for years with no response or outright No from the higher ups

 

I stopped using abrosia because it's constantly grabbing horrible items from shops and hasn't been updated to deal with shop clears

Wow, it's really nice to see so many people still active on neocodex. I used to be so hyper on the forums, formulating buy lists for non-advanced members and what not. Hahaha.

Just wondering for those here; where do you AB nowadays? I'm tentatively trying to AB in battle magic and defense magic hoping that since Neopets has died down quite a bit, they are more lax there. Do any of u take risks in places like Battle Magic, Kauvara and Merrifoods nowadays?

:cop: lurkers know me :p

 

 

I think with anything the shop does not really matter its more about your neo presence i.e. do you post your big restocks on boards, do you immediately put your item in trades to sell so on and so on.  If yes to these you are bringing attention to yourself and that brings haters who like to report, which in turn then brings TNT to review things.

 

If you have your settings not to harsh i.e. not in humane speeds and keep a low profile then you should be able to go in any shop.  Dont get me wrong if you AB then you stand the chance of getting found out and iced but these days TNT it is "more" less likely.
