Good Morning,

So, this has been weighing heavy on me for the last 24 hours, and while I would like to just shrug it off and say the heck with it, I find I can't do that.

Sometime in the last 50 hours or so, someone unknown, turned in a total of 8 tradepacks belonging to me. I had run these packs from Sandeep to Marianople and they were waiting for the run from Marianople to Gweonid, which net's 10.5 gold roughly. Of course, I have received the emails with my 20% in them, which is how I know they were turned in by someone else, in addition to the fact they are no longer around the house.

Now, you might be saying to yourself whats the big deal? Well, let's look at that. First off, I have tried my damndest to be as helpful to anyone and everyone who needs it. In the absence of our usual crafting crew, whose generosity knows no bounds, I have worked hard to fill the gap. I have spent a large quantity of time and personal funds to help everyone achieve success, and have tried to use game mechanics to recoup some of those funds. That is impossible to do if someone is taking, by intent or mistake, my tradepacks which cost me labor, and of course materials and time.

And of course, there is the other part, the common courtesy part. I see other folks tradepacks around the marianople house all the time..I don't touch them. In case you did not know this, if you pick up someone else tradepack by mistake and set it back down, it will then reflect by name that its yours, although the fee money for turn in will still be split between you and the maker. should be paying attention if your fee is split, you just turned in someone else pack.

So, this leaves me down some 80 gold or so, which is crucial in Archeage. It also impacts my game play as I now feel I can't just place tradepacks and build them up to then finish the run when Sandeep and Halcyona go to war. It's not a good spot to be in.

PLEASE take the time to ensure your NOT picking up someone else's packs by mistake. If it's not yours, and its on guild land, meaning anyone can access it, unless you have asked permission, leave it alone please.

Yesterday I was doing pack staging and I noticed there was ONE pack that was "unowned" on the back side of the house; the same side that I always place all my packs. I staged a few more packs and decided to turn in the left over pack only because a couple days earlier I got a mail that one of my packs were turned in by someone else. I figured someone realized they accidentally turned in my pack and left me one there? Not sure. Either way, if this was one of Vuldan's lost packs I will gladly reimburse him. It was only one pack though and I still have not received the money so I can't confirm if it was mine or someone else's.

Regarding the issue of opening resources to guild; we have a lot of people in this guild who don't actively participate in the sanddeep to gweonid trade run. It doesn't really make sense to have that house open to everyone since if something like this happens you have to look at 100 people instead of just 5-10. My 2 cents.
