Default Item purchase rate limit and stack poof

Hello - I was buying some Star Ruby to carry around on monk for port tips today and buying them quickly.

The game booted me i guess as a protection feature but in the process also at the platinum spent and the stack of gems purchased and pre-existing that the new purchases were stacking onto.

[Fri Mar 22 12:02:31 2024] Sir Lishmin begins to cast a spell.
[Fri Mar 22 12:02:35 2024] Sir Arlin is surrounded by a divine aura.
[Fri Mar 22 12:02:45 2024] Zigg Flin scowls at you, ready to attack -- You could probably win this fight.
[Fri Mar 22 12:02:54 2024] You begin to sneak...
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:10 2024] You are thirsty.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:10 2024] You are out of drink.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:18 2024] You begin to sneak...
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:22 2024] Amber says 'Welcome to my shop Huns, you would probably find a Fine Steel Spear handy.'
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:28 2024] Amber tells you, 'That'll be 1 gold 7 copper per Underfoot Triple Bock.'
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:31 2024] Amber tells you, 'That'll be 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper per Star Ruby.'
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:34 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:34 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:35 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:35 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:35 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:36 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:36 2024] You give 66 platinum 3 gold 6 silver 6 copper to Amber.
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:36 2024] Amber tells you, 'You cannot afford the Star Ruby.'
[Fri Mar 22 12:03:36 2024] Thou hast been expelled by the gods!
[Fri Mar 22 12:06:04 2024] Welcome to EverQuest!
[Fri Mar 22 12:06:04 2024] You have entered North Freeport.

Pretty sure you are screwed here. As I understand it in the early days people 'rapid clicked' buying stacks which essentially allowed them to buy extra stacks they didn't have the money to buy. This lead to excess plat inflation in early server, bannings, etc. That is why they added the feature that boots you after rapid clicking a vendor for stacks of items.

As a protection feature, you get booted and some of the purchases may be lost.

As a staff policy, they never reimburse vendor transactions.

Yep not looking for reimbursement, mainly just reporting in case the item loss was unintended and maybe preventable with a fix

Just to clarify the issue: Instead of coding a proper backend solution, such as concurrent db transactions, they instead implemented a solution which punishes the player for simply the interacting with their game. Par for the course around here.

Tell us more about your EQemu coding prowess. How would you resolve this duplication issue?

Perhaps there is a complicated client issue causing a desync between client server that is difficult to fix and this is as good a solution as can be done for now.

Whiny entitled P99 keyboard warrior, par for the course around here.

What's even worse is that surely most of these people are now pushing 40 if not 50. You expect this from teenagers not grown men.

But nothing surprises me anymore.
