Auction House Cleanup

Post by Icon » Wed Sep 27, 2017 3:31 pm

We are going to do away with the unlimited auction house listings and move toward a two week expiration. Starting with the first couple of weeks when the server was opened we will gradually expire all listings that are older than 2 weeks. People with hundreds or thousands of items on the AH will need to check their delivery box regularly once this process begins.

We will be deleting items that sit in delivery boxes for longer than 2 days that are expired from the auction house. For this reason it is highly recommended that you completely empty your receive delivery box before this process begins.

The only item that will not be deleted from delivery boxes is gil. Gil will be transferred to characters inventory if it is left in the receive delivery box.

The expiration process will start no later than November 1st, 2017. We will bump this post or create a new post if this date changes.

(Will most likely start Saturday, October 28th, 2017.)

Players have requested further clarification on the expiration process:

The catch up process will last approximately 4-8 months? Depends on the speed at which we decide to expire items. We haven't decided yet.

The updates that will expire new waves of items will only take place once a week max (during a maintenance.)

The script that will delete items from dboxes will be run two days after the expiration maintenance. If you were to send someone an item to their dbox and they already had 17+ items in their dbox the item you send will be deleted as well.

Once the catch up process is complete we will probably just limit players abilities to send to a dbox with a certain number of items.

Reminder: You have one week to clean your delivery boxes. Deleted items will not be recovered.

The process has begun. All items listed before March 1, 2017 have been expired. We will probably expire a new set of items every week so please continue to check your dboxes. dboxes will be cleaned to prevent huge inventories on Tuesdays.
