Trade ChatFollow

I think most people are in agreement that finding items you need for both crafting higher level items and gear is near impossible. This could be best solved with either a retainer search, an auction house, or global trade chat. Two of these require intervention on SE's part, however the global trade chat is something we can do in-game right now with a little work.

I've had the idea since open beta of creating a linkshell and trying to invite as many people on the server as I can fit into it, for the purpose of buying/selling of crafting materials and finished products. The XIV LS system goes a long way towards making this a possibility, with the ability to equip multiple linkshells.

The problem I've had is that I can't seem to find enough people in-game who are interested, or a way to properly advertise for the linkshell inside of 85 characters. So I'm going to start here and see if I can get some traction for this idea inside the community.

Also if you like the sound of this and are on Rabanastre, hit me up and I'll work on getting a pearl to you.

Character name is in my signature.

Right now I have about 3 people, and 15 more I need to get pearls into their hands. It has been slow going so far, but I'm making everyone who joins a sackholder so that we can help spread the love.

This would be cool. I have a question though, how do u turn off the chat for a certain LS without dropping it?
If you select retire does that discard it or just make it in-active?

If i wanted to turn off the AH_Trade LS and just see normal stuff, how does one go about doing that?

I could see a LS with 1500+ folks selling stuff making my chatwindow explode.
I think its a good idea but wanna know how to toggle it on/off

I'd be interested in this, as I've been doing a lot crafting. Hit me up in-game when you get time, name's in my sig and I'm kinda stuck at Limsa Limosa right now due to lack of Anima.

edge, you can go to your configuration from the main menu, then chat filters, and disable any of the linkshells from 1-9 i think? not 100% how many it lets you join but thats where you can pick specific LS's and disable the chat :)

Awesome thank you... then yes this would be a great method to set up a trade channel.

You know you've been playing FFXI/XIV too long when your typing outside of game and wanna put "Thank You" and you type thank and push tab and find your cursor somewhere else.... Yes I just did this, and im not proud of it :-/

A friend of mine did this on Besaid. He called it the Crafter Consortium.

Other than in game LS system. Is there anyway we can set up an off-game system where people can post what they are selling? Break it down to Server/Item, and people can post on the individual item how much they are selling it for, name of retainer, which city and which marketing ward.

Something like FFXIAH.com would be really nice, but the problem is getting people in-game to use an out of game tool. It's much easier to advertise for an in-game linkshell than a website.

I'm a member of the Consortium, and with every person that joins, it just gets better.

Yup, something similar to FFIXAH. One thing good about it is I don't have to be online to respond to people if they need something I have. I can set up my retainer, post my items on the website and head to bed. Of cause, an in-game LS will be very useful too. I just have to ask, "Hey..I need this and that...anyone can make it?" :)
