I'm a professional UX developer who has offered to code something better up for them in the past.

They never took me up on the offer, so we can only assume they are happy with their current tooling.
Or maybe they don't want you to put a dirty back door in

I don't think drop transfers cost the GMs any time at all. My understanding is they don't reimburse for lost items due to a drop transfer gone wrong.
They do, but shared bank would also alleviate more than just drop and pops, any kind of transfer would be aided by being able to use a shared bank versus seeking out another player to do these kind of moves

I get that a shared bank would be a major and glaring violation of classic principles and thus wont happen, but if you looked objectively at the principle involved it would be very consistent with many of the previous decisions made on this server and would definitely help with the backlog of GM petitions

Yeah or at the very least a guild bank...although maybe not at the rate guild drama occurs people might raid the guild bank

Sorry guild bank meaning full shared bank just to alleviate the annoyance of having a guild bank character, spell bank character, etc.

I just appreciate the P99 devs & GMs for all they do. It's ok if these reimbursements are delayed, I'll patiently wait.

Thanks for the update!

eesh - I really had no idea GM support was so thin. reading through this thread, I feel silly for requesting not one but two surname-wipes in the last two years [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

We'll do anything to not go -1 including give ourselves an 8-month backlog on dumbass fuck up correction

this is a completely reasonable strategy

frankly, why is dumbass fuck up correction even necessary?

they are the dumbasses who fucked up, why should the staff even bother weaving a safety net?

staff doesn't come rez you when you pull a bad train and wipe 2-3 groups

Pretty sure those are much much simpler to do than what they're talking about here. I've had surnames wiped a few times, and rotted corpses restored, and every time I just /petitioned in game and it was done within like 20 minutes.

I aint a scam artist or thief, but if it takes that long for them to respond, I feel like a person could sell fake MQs for big $$$. By the time they get around to even looking at the problem, both players probably gone [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
