wow only 1mil? still 1mil to me is gold Biggrin i wouldnt mind saving 1mil but probably with a shop size over 600+ 1mil is pretty easy to get but a lot of hard work stocking up your shop.

Is it shallow to say 'Main Market = Status Symbol'?
Really, is anything 'worth it' on Neo? If it's fun to you, do it! If not, find something else you think is fun! And if nothing is fun? Well, you shouldn't be playing!

Market-wise (profits, sales, etc.) - it's not worth it Blum 3 The large amount you put into it, for the little output that it gives. But what we love is added account "coolness" and the fact that you "earn while you sleep" sounds good.

My point of view:

Ask yourself the question - Why did you start malling? And ask yourself are you still getting that from malling now? If yes, then malling is still worth it!

Here's mine:

Why did you start malling?
1. For fun!
2. For profits?

Yes! I'm still having fun! And Yes! I'm still making profits!!

Then yes, malling is still worth it for ME!

A nice idea would be that shops don't show up in the marketplace/huts if their account has been inactive for an arbitrary period of time (i.e. 6 months). But if that player logs onto their account, their shop automatically gets put back in. That way the marketplace is full of active shops, has lower requirements and nobody loses the millions of invested neopoints (even if they never play again) Smile

Just as Dimitri pointed out, it will cause more chaos than benefits.

Thus I still like the idea Smile
We need to shake things up every now and then!
Unfortunately, it's hard to monitor 'when was the last time the user put something in their shop, changed a price, etc'. That would require too much more tracking and effort.
How many MM shops got shut down in the Purge anyway? Did that shake things up at all?

The Purge? Sorry, I'm relatively new to malling so I'm not familiar with the history I-m so happy

But yeah, for me, I'm like Sales, if I didn't have a shop to run, I probably would have stopped playing neopets all together...
