Does anyone have a FAQ or help on trading or how to trade? It would make a good addition on here...

I suggest the exellent thread "on drinking" by platypus to be added to your list.

[size=10]Wyrmul, welcome to the forums. This thread however isn't exactly the right place to ask - you should have written a new post (thread) on the Tips & Tricks forum itself by clicking the "new topic"-button on the top of the screen, or done a search for previous messages about the same subject. Don't worry, these forums can be quite confusing at first. To answer your question: spinn has written two months ago here the following advice: Type "/help" (or "/h") for all slash commands.

Might I recommend adding the following to the list?

Puzzle Affectors

It's a good listing of things that increase scores and decrease scores for various puzzles. I know that it's helped me a few times by showing that things I thought were worth a lot were actually not that important.

I don't believe so. That doesn't stop someone from making one, though- if you want to request one though, you could always make a post asking "How do bid tickets work?"

I wish someone would talk about the art of foraging in one of these forums...
Currently I am sitting on an island to get me 3 units of butterfly weed. I can't get even a piece of stone. Does this mean that the island has run dry? or has someone already foraged the island quota.. is there a quota?

How often does each island renew it's comodities? or is my thinking all wrong?

Please help me by explaining this to me.

Islands do indeed renew their commodities. It is semi-random, but I suppose you could work out the general time at which you needed to forage still. The trick, if I remember correctly, is to forage only one to three times, and then stop. Wait a while. Forage again.

Of course, many people will have problems with you doing such things, as there's a lot of resentment to camping at the moment. Unfortunately, it's about the only way to forage anything that's rare.

Butterfly Weed isn't really all that rare- if you can't find it on one island, it may be better to try a different island that has it instead. I believe the specific island you are talking about (O'Reilly?) is heavily foraged in order to get papagoite. Try some island that doesn't have any rare rocks on it. Or ask someone else you find foraging there if they have any spare butterfly weed they don't want. ;)

O'Reilly is famous for it's Masuyite deposits, and that it looks like a camel. ;)

One island that doesn't spawn rare rocks, but does spawn butterfly weed is Lagniappe, in the Jet arch.

If you don't have charts to that island, I can help you, or anyone else listed in the memmorization assistance thread.
