OMG Stop Running away! Note to all Bazaar usersFollow

Hi..

If you have a bazaar on your character and you see someone run up to you... do not run away, wait until that person leaves or takes way to long...

The person may have just stopped by you.. 1 min is a good amount of time if you are not sure..

The person's character view will be focused on you.

Normally I wouldn't think this was a problem, but 99% of people stop for a second, then run off.

Please just give people some time, most people are complaining about lag also, that may take longer.

I think SE should make some "your Bazaar is being viewed" notice...

Thanx...

They had one in FFXI and some people didn't like it.
I think the Japanese translation was supposed to be really creepy.

It was just the examine notice which was worded awkwardly, not the bazaar notice. It read "Player stares at you fixedly."

Anyway, no one minded when they had a bazaar up.

Edit: My biggest beef right now is that you can't run while examining a bazaar, wtf SE? 8 year old functionality, please let me have it.

Yeah, I wonder what the community would say if the message was "<char> glares intensely at your crotch"

If third-party widgets were allowed (because I know SE would never do it) I would suggest that someone make one that opens when you have a a bazaar up that simply lists players who are shopping with you at any given time.

Somtimes I prefer that you can't see people checking you, like in XI "(name) examines you" couldbe creepy at times, this is crappy low level gear! why do you need to see? but after you check a bazaar you should be able to buy no matter how far away you are, I'm always coming across people selling stuff i really want but can't buy because they don't klnow i'm even trying to...

This wouldn't be as big of a deal if you were allowed to walk while viewing a bazaar.

I don't know if it's been fixed, but I remember in OB, if you weren't close enough to the person, when you went to purchase the item, you would get the message "Unable to purchase item."

This happened to me too.
It was like:
"finally someone selling maple wands.. should i pay X amount"
*poof*
"What where'd they go!"
*runs around forever looking for them*
"Fine, I will just buy a Weathered one to start off my career... Oh there they are again! score!"
