    i made a post to try and start like a shop promotion ring but nobody seemed interested. Just people helping to tell people about the shops at quarry in trade chat.

    Hey Rex, I saw that post and (I suppose this is mildly on-topic) remembered that Blast I think hired hired what he called "town-criers". Maybe it's worth having a chat with him?

    Town-Criers is a GREAT idea until or even after ad terminals. Gets the word out and gets some small money into the hands of some new people who may not have deposited yet.

    Ad screens will come soon, please be patient and understand that it's one of many things to come in the months ahead.

    You're going to hate me for saying this, but i really dislike the advertisements screens on calypso and hope they won't get implemented on arkadia.

    and i hate this new app they are working on to sell thorugh mobiles, working to make easier the work of pet accaount holders t, so i really wonder if i should have any faith in shops them
    we all hate so many things but you is not one of mine :), i dont even care if i like them or not or if they can be done better, they are effective and cheap way to advertise, specially very needed as the amaunt of tourist is high with so many planets and residents low

    Any other alternative is way more costly either in time/resources

    I really think the real solution is a Shop Terminal. One that lets you look at all items in shops on all planets like on auction but you can't buy it unless you goto the shop. It would basically just show you whats for sale what price and where.

    The whole auction order and shop interfaces really need an overhaul. They could make some serious changes that would have serious benefitial effects on the economy. Orders alone is a terrible system. Some people put in orders for stuff and dont even t hink that people will not fullfil them because the MU is so low and the quantiy is so low that with the 1 ped increments you can't even auction it for anything more then TT for it to go through the auction. You should be able to sell direct to a specific order and get to the PEC amount of markup. At least have it work that way for stackables.

    A shop terminal would make so much sense. People could search for there item like auction then be given a waypoint to go purchase it. Also Shop owners would be able to adjust prices on the fly from the terminal instead of going to each item in the shop finding it and adjusting it. Even better would be if you could do "online" buying from the terminal. where you bought it through the terminal but had to goto the shop to pick it up.

    Other then that my other big issue is that people overuse auction. I here ppl complain they can't find stuff in auction when there are tons of shops with it. They dont even try to talk to people anymore. I see so many orders for stuff and i'm like come on people just ask in trade at quarry i'd give it to you for half or no MU. I think as a community we need to incourage everyone to just start talking more. Get people going to the shops more. I'll try to think of it myself but when i'm selling something at quarry I'll try to remember to point people to the towns with shops to look for there stuff too. I really think we need to start an anti-auction campaign.

    I agree 'soon' is a vague term, had a lot of things to work on over the past months as I'm sure you appreciate. I can tell you we are working on an ad system currently for Arkadia, can't promise it will be in this coming update (Oct) but we'll try.

    I agree with Chilix here, they may not be the best design but they really are effective. When I place an ad on the screens on Calypso my shop gets 3 times the sales compared to months I do not place an ad.

    I also want ad terminals. Used one for the first time on RT after I opened my shop there and got a lot of footfall as a result. Its also an easy revenue stream for the PP I guess?

    Yes everything is awesome here in Australia. I'm glad you noticed. Arkadia development isn't done here but we are still awesome. However you raise a good point. Singapore should really consider joining the Fedaration. Spain also. There's always room for somwe more states.

    Lol no doubt we'll start seeing some Spanish some time soon mate, the way things are going for them up there...

    Chilix, if you came to Perth, Jim and I would give you a nice tour, show you round, teach you the accent etc... It would be fun.
