“From Q&A Sims: It is not the admins job to reverse IC business deals. ”
That is exactly what is happening though. The ones that camp broke a rule, they knew it was wrong yet did it anyway. And you are about to reward them for it. The person who bought them (and I am sure it is more then 1% over a 60 day period) are the ones that will be punished. If you are going to take items from players that did nothing wrong, you should at the very least punish those who broke the rules. It is no different then making a multi to gain income. It is a rule violation that brought in an insane amount of credits from little to no work at all.
“For the 1% of people getting supposedly screwed by this, would you prefer everyone who was following the rules and waiting to bid on auctions that never happened to be screwed? ”
There is nothing guaranteeing those people would have won a legit auction anyway... so wouldnt they be the 1%? I am sure more people bought items from campers then those that would have won an auction. Besides, those people are going to have an opportunity to get to bid on these items.
So once again, the only people getting punished here are the ones that followed the rules, and bought something that was made to look like a legit sale. There is NOTHING
in place atm that will protect the innocent. Other then a scammer list that hurts no one.
