Aye, easier said than done unfortunately

True. Some simple steps could be taken though. For example, to stop all the auto restockers in the main shops, they could change those "click the blumaroo" images around a bit. They could add more neopets to the image, for example, to fix the issue for a while. Even a captcha would work. I don't care if it would take longer to restock - it would take longer for everyone.

Then there's all those people autosending impossible scores for games. They could just monitor certain games like Meerca Chase and Maths Nightmare, and freeze the hell out of everyone who sent an impossible score.

Good Idea: Feeding stray kittens in the park.

It really depends on the whole "Impossible Score" thing; I've had a couple friends who have earned the top spot on the high score table and then gotten their account disabled for using a cheating device even when they did it themselves; A score cap that provides warnings without sufficient information causes problems.

Bad Idea: Feeding stray kittens in the park... to a bear.

I'm not talking about score caps (that's what review scores are for), but actual impossible scores. Some games have an actual max score that is impossible to go above. And for other games, the scoring works a certain way that every score has to be divisible by a certain number. That's how you can easily catch careless cheaters.

Looks like all of these 'fast pricing' shops may be using the NeoCodex NeonAP Shop Auto Pricer.
Wonder what they use as the purchasing agent.

Portal was mentioned in one of the threads too Lol
'Not to advertise other programs here, but the NeoMallers portal has a way to add up the total value of your shop by pasting your shop front into the program.'

Edit: Aha, probably 'Soul Stealers' Program Manager, as it comes with a User Shops Auto-Buyer and Auction Sniper.
I know the Auto Pricer earlier has support for 'items with the same name, such as maps', this AB likely does as well. I'd love to get my hands on the source code for their programs just to analyze program behavior (though there are MANY user set options, many things would still be 'set in stone'), but I'm sure they don't post it, and if they did, I'd rather not even make an account there Lol

Yea they could be the same person. And they could be using auto pricer. But unless TNT has evidence it will be hard to nail them. And lol why title must put Singapore shops... And is it true that some Americans think that Singapore is part of China??

Wait Singapore isn't in china? I've been being lied to all these years by my fellow Americans! (Sarcasm, hopefully you catch it.)
