Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

We haven't asked since then. It would've been nice if they'd let people know that they changed policy, though, since we've been told for years now that banks are being preserved in case of future releases that required them.

Time for Midnight to become bank-free?

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

Yeah, we've been told that the Ringers (or maybe just Cleaver) have something in mind for the banks something like four times longer than we had banks. Or rather, we were told once, and then nothing.

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

 
 
Just a note on the bank, Cold Steel has asked repeatedly for the bank on Wrasse to be removed, to no avail. I hope you are more successful.

That's interesting! The official policy page (http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Official:Policy#Dusting_Buildings:) says that banks may be dusted when requested through a petition, and "you may be asked why you want to dust it".

I will just have to try!

(Edit to add: I note that the policy about dusting banks was only added on 6th August 2010, by Artemis. If you asked before then, it is probably worth asking again!)


Thank you for pointing this out. We'll try again. I think the answer to why? on a blue ocean would be that they are useless.

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

I think having a Dev remove a bank is more complicated than just, "Because they are useless on blue oceans." You have to give them a reason why you want it removed, and what you intend to place there. If you are intending to place another shoppe, I hope they tell you get bent. But if there is a reason like building a bazaar so that no other buildings can be placed on the island, cool.

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

It seems harsh to penalize islands that had banks placed when they were required, but reward islands that were colonized after the Universal purse was instituted. The only reason for their existance on any ocean is the cash box for the Dubloon exchange. Put said cash box in the palace/fort and be done with it.

Or just leave one bank open at the capital of each arch, since you know someday OOO will find something to do with the banks. Hey...make them a poe transfer between blue/blue oceans. :P Put 200k in on Cobalt, and get 180k on Midnight. Deal!!!

Oh please no! Not that I care for a bank on each island (it's fine if Cleos bank goes) but when I started playing there was no use for the banks and I see them like remains of an old time when I wasn't around ;)

And coming from games where banks were used I poked around a while trying to stash away my stuff and figure out that secret use that I was sure was there :P

I think you can access the dubloon exchance from your profile anyway :)

..so Harrjm not that far off..

I do not see anyway to get to either my sub account or buy dubs account thru My Profile?
Nor do I see a sub route from the client by clicking on your name In YE.
On dub oceans you can easily get to your account to purchase Dubs with real money at any time.

On sub oceans it it a trip frought with obstacles, no map and with a starting point surrounded by 3 and a half walls of cement.

..Until ye unsubbed then ye get the button..


Edit : to add.. and On Crimson for the Dub Club You cannot purchase another till the first one runs out. so mine runs out on the 23rd of the month.. and I cannot renew it till it officially runs out.. I can buy more dubs separately.. just not renew or continue .. or purchase another package.
A main bank for each arch on the capital.. would be awesome if it gave you access to your Billing Accounts and special deals/dub purchases on sub oceans.

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

Tinga has not had a bank since late 2007 or early 2008. Papaya doesn't have one either. How come nobody noticed?

Re: Intent for Cleopatra's Pearls

Don just a FYI

I did ask for the bank removing on cleo, to build housing, as it only has the 10k homes. (I thought this might attract more ppl to live on the island) This was 3-5 months ago I was declined as they said they may want to do something with the banks.

Yer welcome! The new bazaar should be finished soon. And Trixy, as Anaplian noted, the policy on banks appears to have been updated last August, probably just after you asked. This time, the request was honored. :D
