Hey, TNT. I just wanted to know: how do you make a mall in the Marketplace? ~kittenmitten_1
In order for your shop to appear in the Marketplace, you need to keep upgrading your shop until it is large enough in shop size to appear on the map. If you mean more along the line of the graphics and links you often see in those shops, those are groups of players working cooperatively by linking their shops to form a "mall." If you have the funds or shop size to appear in the Marketplace, you can contact the players from your favourite mall to see if they have an opening. It's totally up to them, though. We have nothing to do with these "malls" and cannot force them to let you play along with them.

Just had to bring it up, because I was so amused by their disclamer... That they can't force the malls to let people "play" with them. tongue

But I'm curious... I wonder if the mention will make more people check out the marketplace this week? Should be interesting. *nods*

But then again, on second thought... It just might mean a whole lot more people will be spamming main mallers asking if they can join their malls. oh

Rofl, yeah. Actually, it may have helped spark interest in malling in general though... We've had some openings that have been a bit of a challenge to fill lately, and as of next weekend, both the main and mini UU malls will be filled again. Grin

And the new members seem far less nOObish than a couple of members. oh I mean hey, they even ACTUALLY read the rules on our petpage... No one does that. I have the whole system where you have a keyword people are supposed to include in their applications, proving that they've read... And our newest three people are, I believe some of only 5 or 6 people who've ever included that keyword...

Even if I tell the person three times to read the rules, I usually never see the keyword, as a general rule. oh

Hehe, yeah. But also, if they ever attacked mallers... Really, we're a driving force of the entire neopian economy... Mallers are some of the wealthiest players, they pull tons of items from the economy that might otherwise just sit, they pull np out of the economy by taking it away from stupid people... They send np into one of the largest np sinks that exists (shop sizes)...

If they didn't put up with mallers, I'd hazard a guess there would be some very visible effects in neopia...

No joke, I got at least five applicants in the last couple of days, and two for spots that almost NEVER get filled.
