    Busy Sellers

    Hi Erorus,
    When did the Busy Sellers page appear - I don't recall seeing it yesterday but heck I miss things all the time.

    I'm pretty sure I was never really anonymous since I've don't even attempt to hide my main Banker but I flinched a little seeing my name up there (was kinda hoping it had been forgotten since the Top Sellers disappeared). Oh well, it's nice seeing all my competitors in one spot again.

    Thanks for the new feature

    That's what I'm afraid of! Losing the few tiny niches I have, but hopefully those items are too small potatoes for people

    On the other hand, I checked out all the names on the list and 7/13 are Glyph Sellers! (2 have similar names and only sell 4 classes each - you aren't on my realm are you Hiragana?).

    There are only 3 Gem sellers - 1 of which is raw gems only and one of which is mine. She came into the game late and is still cranking out both JC dailies so I will move out of the bottom spot eventually...

    There are 2 ore sellers which makes me sad since all their stock is gone now ...but they have real names so I might try contacting them to see if they farm regularily.

    And then there's my main Banker who has the distinction of selling a little bit of everything - lol

    Hmmm, my scribe is only 66 but nearly has a complete book. Of the 61 recipes left to learn only 12 are actually Glyphs and I could crank those out with BoGM but I don't think I want to step into that market. Especially looking at all the competition already there! ...but then again I like challenges (I think)

    yer i recognise a lot of the names from my realm to be either glyph sellers or ore sellers. Im guessing that makes sense since both my characters post over 100 different glyphs each multiple times a day.
    Haha and dont worry im on eu realms .
    Glyphs can be good for money on some servers but its a lot of hard work on others, i backed out of it for a while till i could make atleast 10 of every glyph, now i only have to post and collect the expired glyphs when i feel like it, no more cancelling which when your doing it a few times a day gets very annoying.

    Added it late yesterday. People missed Top Sellers, and I thought about giving it another shot. This time, each seller name has a tooltip, and the tooltip has a line at the bottom saying why they're on the Busy Sellers list. Right now, the only criteria are number of auctions posted in the past 24 hours, and number of different items posted in the past 24 hours. I did have the thought that, with just those criteria, the list is going to be just glyph sellers and ore/herb farmers. I used to include something like "most value currently posted" or something, but that's easy to game with a few 400,000g rocks.

    In the end, I thought, put it up, see what comes out of the forum.

    A potential problem Ive spotted with the Busy sellers... There is this one guy who camps AH for give or take 18 hours a day on my realm, reposting auctions approximately every 3 minutes. No sooner have you posted auctions than hes reposted.

    Wont this falsely populate the busy sellers list?

    @Cazmia Well, I would consider that person a really busy seller... or at least a very busy poster.

    18 hours a day, every day.

    On my realm there is one posting 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, reposts every 2-3 minutes. That's not boredom or a busy poster, that's china gold farm.

    Nice feature. It highlights some of my suspicions about bots or account sharing. Interestingly on my realm someone from The #1 raiding guild on our server is posting 24/7. Some days with not even 1 hour break. I'd have expected better from them.
