Edited by: Sturmwolke on 14/12/2010 09:47:37Problem case :
At the moment we have a sort of semi-regulation in the form of the character bazaar rules whenever a player buy/sell a character. However, due to the nature of forum posts, details whether transfers had actually occured cannot be fully confirmed by any neutral party observers. In addition, sorting through the voluminous posts trying to follow the paper trail can be both exhaustive and frustrating.(Tentative) Proposal :
Create an attribute tag for each character that lists its (buy/sell) transfer history (I have a feeling that this is probably already available via the API but not set to public).
Create a query front on Eve-O that allows any
3rd party to do a name search for the transfer history.Game Pros :
Makes character background checks easier and more accurate.
Tools given to players to expose a convoluted net of character transfers. Additional anti-macrobots hunting benefits.
Clears the cloak & dagger atmosphere (a little) for more constructive corp/alliance building.Game Cons :
Makes it harder to plant a spy in corps/alliances (but not impossible).
Edit: modified the title for more oomph
Edit2: added extra colours for even more oomph.
