    This one is directly pointed to all the vet reg buyers that are doing it unattended (i.e. nearly everybody):

    http://uorforum.com/threads/anti-afk-gather-sell-system.486/

    "In order to combat the problem of unattended gathering and selling the Renaissance staff have created a system that will monitor these activities. Since no free shard can have staff online around the clock to respond to player complaints about unattended macro'ers an automated system was needed.

    Any player doing one of the activities listed below will have a chance to be presented with this gump ingame."
    .
    .
    .
    Gathering Items (Cotton, etc)
    .
    .
    .

    Here is my inquiry: Create AFK gumps for reg buying! People are doing it automated and unattended. I know it, because they arent reacting and it's pretty obvious. I also know, that this has been going on like forever, but there is no reason to not change it, even if it's roughly 3 years too late.

    Why change it at all? Because it's generation of ressources that usually are re-sold with a gain. This means de-facto automated wealth generation, which was supposed to be fought with the AFK-gump system. Additionally, there is no Feluccan way to stop the reg buyers from doing that as it's happening in guard zones and with NPCs around. You can't engage them properly.

    Don't get me wrong: I don't have anything against reg traders. I have something against unattended gameplay.

    2 poison fields and the NPCs are dead, you may even get the Reg Buyer as well... Just saying :)

    Regarding Regs, Just checked the amount of black pearl and blooodmoss in circulation .. 6.4m & 6.8m. That's JUST SITTING AROUND..... in piles in someone's house/bank or vendor.... Not sure if it considers Comm Deeds...

    Even if you shut down all Reg Selling NPCs, I think it would be sometime before those regs are used up

    Your not gathering a resource, your sinking gold.

    Sink it attended. Apart from that, many aren't sinking anything, they buy for re-selling. Unattended automation is my concern.

    Right. I'll put Vrak Seklu to use and eliminate Hydrox. But he represents a larger problem!

    xD Have openly welcomed an AFK gump to reg buying as I'm 99% present for purchasing.

    I only buy when I have coding work to do, leave it up on the 3rd monitor chill'n... If people left 20 Gold everytime they picked up a piece of cotton they can lose a gump too! :)

    Actually now I don't mind. Hydrox makes it possible for me to buy 999 stacks of regs rather than piles of twenty.
