    Then ask to leave it on there after the festival ends. Obviously, the hosts are putting in a lot of effort in trying to make it seem like something more than a greed fest. They want to have sort of a real "opening" to the festival and make it more of a community thing.

    Respect their wishes and hard work to make it something more than a farmer's market.

    I'll admit, I'd love to get rid of extra stuff too, but I never stock my vendor until I know its okay. If I can't be around the morning of the festival, I'll stock it the night before as late as possible. The stocking rule has been in place in every festival I've attended, although quite a few ignore it.

    What bugs me more than the stocking early, is those that stock items that aren't rare like haven barrel hoops, etc. I wish we could come up with a set of universal rules as well as a system to ban the items like the aforementioned. Perhaps the hosts keeping track of whose vendor is whose and they are messaged to remove the item and if they don't, than they are banned from having a vendor at the next one. Can they find a way around it? Sure, but I'd like it if at least we made an effort to protect the integrity of the rares community as a whole by publicly taking a stand against it. It really hurts our reputation and imposes the sense that the entire community is about greed more than education, safety and passion.

    "you can sell a few pieces, but PLEASE not the best or a lot. " I'm telling everyone the same thing." Quoted from Miss D on ICQ.

    But to be honest its not so much about greed, its most about actually making some gold to spend on the weekend. How many will xshard 2-3b to spend there when they have a lot of items to sell?

    I myself have over 450 pieces of Rubble a lot of good rubble aswell I moved it all there to have some for pre-sales aswell. I doubt I would be able to sell it all in 3 days.
    Else I might aswell just setup a vendor on a Atlantic and sell off there because it would be nearly the same and just keep the stuff thats really good for Rares Festival only. So the smaller collectors might not be able to get anything because most items will be the good and expensive stuff.

    I can understand that some people who first comes friday or thursday would feel sad if they missed out on some "bargains" or items they wanted during the week. But they cant expect the items to be for sale there anyway.

    Think outside of the box. Follow the rules and you can continue the sell after the festival is officially over :)

    All,

    I have begun giving out the vendors! If I have not yet contacted you via ICQ, feel free to reach out to me. Evenings between 8PM and 11PM EDT, and mornings just after server reset are the best times to reach me.


    To answer the question of stocking:

    I am expecting pre-sales of semi-rares, EM items, etc. We are having an opening, and I want to respect that folks who xshard may arrive on Thursday. I would not want them to spend the gold to xshard only to find that the item they wanted was sold already. Server Births and true rares should not be stocked until Thursday night.


    I look forward to meeting each of you soon!

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    For those of you struggling with putting gold on your vendor for upkeep, I'll share a nifty trick. Get a bod book and put a bod in it and price it for however much you want you to put on the vendor. Put the bod book on your vendor 'not for sale', open it and buy your bod. You can do this with the character that owns the vendor and it saves you some trips to the bank.

    Enjoy!

    There are 5 Registered Vendor Renters who have not yet responded to my ICQs. As the 2010 Pacific Rares & Events Fest opening ceremony is in 10 hours, and I have a wait list in case of cancellations, I feel the need to post a warning.

    If you are one of the 5 Registered Vendor Renters, and you don't reply to my ICQ or show up for your vendor by 3PM PDT on Friday April 16th, I will start to rent the remaining contracts to folks on the wait list.

    I hope that this warning reaches folks who still want their reserved vendor, and that you contact me within the next 17 hours!

    Thanks,
    Miss D
