Several updates just went in to make it easier to identify items that are registered to others, hopefully to clue you in to questionable purchases at the time. Forums formatting isn't great, but hopefully the examples are still clear.


APPRAISE now has a line if it's registered indicating whether it's yours or someone else's:

The funny blade looks to bear your familiar marks of registration. Unfamiliar marks of registration are evident on the blade.


REGISTER CHECK now has similar indications:

You take a moment to recall your registered items... ......1) 1/11/2013 a funny blade with wicked stuff ......X) A funny blade with wicked stuff is registered to someone else. Roundtime: 3 sec.


The ACCEPT verb now messages the person accepting an item -- whether it's a GIVE/ACCEPT, a BARTER exchanging two items (works both ways), or a BARTER exchanging an item + coins:

You accept Minime's offer and are now holding a funny blade with wicked stuff. You notice unfamiliar marks of registration upon it. ​ Minime's point of view of item+item barter: You accept Zadraes's offer and take a sad knife as you hand him a funny blade with wicked stuff. You notice unfamiliar marks of registration upon it.

Zadraes's point of view of item+item barter: Minime has accepted your offer and takes the sad knife as he hands you a funny blade with wicked stuff. You notice unfamiliar marks of registration upon it.


Lastly, Trader auction halls won't allow them to sell registered items. This may cause some short term pain, to which I apologize, but long term we need to shift the responsibility of making sure items are registered (or unregistered) by the right people. I'm holding off on market tables and shops in hopes that these other changes lead to better habits.


We're still keeping an eye on how the Lost and Found mechanics play out and may make additional tweaks to other mechanics if necessary. Hopefully these updates help make registration more visible, since otherwise people don't think about it unless they're in the office.

These updates are live everywhere EXCEPT for the APPRAISE verb in TF. TF's appraise verb will come with the woodworking/lumberjacking release.
