So, I've noticed a LOT of people accidentally putting up items/lions for SB instead of GB or the other way around.
Would it not be helpful to have a little warning box that says something along the lines of 'Are you sure you want to put up this trade for 20SB?' Or 'Double-check your trade price before clicking OK!' Or a text box similar to the one you get when you make a transfer to another user.

It would save a lot of time and anguish when someone buys out your trade for (example) an interstellar clean piebald lioness for 50SB instead of 50GB (not accurate pricing but you get my drift).
It would also stop people from blaming the person who bought the trade, thinking they were getting a deal, only for them having to send it back or be harassed for the other person's mistake.

Cons:
- Takes too long to set up trades
- People being impatient and not wanting to double-check their trades
Pros:
- Less people being harassed
- More satisfied sellers
- Far more secure

Suggestions:
Little Mouse: " Just an idea though, maybe you could toggle the double check if you really didn't want it?"

Just pain: "It would help putting icons there (as its done for branches, that helps) but not yet another comfirmation."

Tacatto: "A simple 'Are you sure you want to put this trade up for 6 SILVER beetles" would be good! Not a '6 SB' but a '6 SILVER' because it would be easier to see a 'SILVER' and 'GOLD' then a 'SB' and 'GB'"


If you don't agree with this (I don't know why you wouldn't?) Please let me know with something constructive, and I'll jot it down in the cons.



This suggestion has 109 supports and 18 NO supports.

I’m definitely supporting! A few times I didn’t know I accidentally put something up for 200gb instead of sb until I actually saw it in the trade

Yeah I can understand the horror once you see your trade and wonder why it's not selling xD

I'll support, I can only imagine how frustrating these kinds of mix ups can be for everyone involved. Just an idea though, maybe you could toggle the double check if you really didn't want it?

Good idea, I'll pop it into suggestions :) Although, I can imagine the people who toggled it off would then complain about selling something for far lower than it should have been, but that's their problem I guess xD

To all the people not supporting, I'd like to hear your reasonings as to why, seeing as this literally benefits everyone.

Do you really think that people that can't even see what they're pricing theit stuff at are going to... read confirmation message?
It would help putting icons there (as its done for branches, that helps) but not yet another comfirmation.
TC is already frustrating as it is.
YOU HAVE NOT ENTERED ANYTHING TO TRADE
THIS LION HAS A ROLE FUCK YOU LMAO TRY AGAIN
which refreshes whole page every time too.
I don't want to deal with 100500 confirmation boxes personally.
Do you want to kill this lion? Do you want to breed? Do you want to use this item? Do you want to send a stud request. Double confirmation just to send my own side shit.
It's on YOU to make sure you're not making a mistake, if people cant read no confirmation will ever help them.

Just a thought as to something to add into the trading centre. A lot of people complain that it's the buyers fault for not seeing their mistake.
Personally, TC is piss easy for me to navigate, and I don't have any issues with 100,500 confirmation boxes.
The issue I've brought up has never effected me at all, however, I've seen countless people getting into arguments and becoming hostile with others, because the buyer didn't correct their mistake.
There's no confirmation boxes at all for putting an extremely expensive item nor an expensive lion up for sale. Maybe halting them in their tracks will make them think twice before shoving a double ebony clean female primal up for 100SB and not GB.
But thank you for the feedback, I'll put your suggestion up above :)

I personally support. I barely make this mistake but i do make that mistake because sometimes im in a rush and on mobile, probably because the class was about to be over and i was about to be in a hallway full of other people that is like 2 times bigger then me and can kill be with a simple breath, or because i sometime make big dumbie mistakes. A simple 'Are you sure you want to put this trade up for 6 SILVER beetles" would be good! Not a '6 SB' but a '6 SILVER' because it would be easier to see a 'SILVER' and 'GOLD' then a 'SB' and 'GB'

I have to agree with Pain. Do we really need a confirmation box for everything on the site? If people are so concerned about putting the wrong things in trades and other stuff, maybe they should, I don't know, double check before they confirm? It's not that hard to read over your information before confirming.

I personally hate when people use the 'staff don't need to code this' or 'staff don't need to waste time coding that into the site' excuse for not supporting something. But in this case, I don't see a need for it. If you can't take a minute to make sure your information is correct, then that's on you. I don't think staff should have to tweak little things like this just because people are too lazy to re-read their stuff to make sure it's correct. If you wanna be lazy, you're gonna pay for it.

Besides, as already stated, if people are too lazy to re-read their trade info and make sure it's right, are they really going to re-read it because a popup box tells them to? Most likely not.

Side note but I wish the transfer confirmation popups would be removed. They're pointless and annoying too. XD

True, but this would significantly lessen the amount of people being harassed for not giving back a valuable item just because the other person didn't price it right. I've seen a lot of people bombarding other users and ganging up on them, simply because they deem it as 'rude'. It then becomes a modbox issue - one that could easily be solved by ensuring people are FORCED to double check they're pricing their stuff correctly.
Sure, it may be annoying, but what if it happens to you one day, and you wish there was something stop you from making that mistake? But instead, you've now either got to deal with the user who bought your item for pennies and they refuse to give it back, I'm sure you wouldn't want to deal with that. And sure, you could just give up and let it slide and blame yourself, or, you know, there could be a check before you mess up?
Yes, personally I hate the transfer confirmation system too - but that has nothing to do with this, that's a separate issue.

I've had that idea for a while, but I kept forgetting about posting it. I don't think we need more notifications, simply put already existing icons before SB and GB options. Just like this:

Silver Beetles: ___
Gold Beetles: ___

It's an issue for both new and experienced players. The gap between both options is non-existent, so it's easy to mistake them when setting up dozens of trades at once.

Yup! That's already (sort of, same concept) one of the suggestions that someone has mentioned, I've put it in the post :) I agree that there isn't much of a gap between the currencies, so I completely understand that it's easy to get confused about it!

Full support. Ive made this mistake countless times, and although people may argue that the mistakes are 'on them,' it really shouldn't be. Not everyone brains/vision works the same and processes images the same. Me, for one easily swaps items for other items or opposites. Why? I really don't know, but I always realize my mistake way to late when somethings been bought out for 20sb over 20gb. And whoops! There goes all my hard earn gb considering some players often don't want to miss out on a bargain like that.This game itself is very 'grind' based with lots of buttons and choices you interact with daily. Most players do it at a fast speed to get their daily chores over quicker. Confirmation buttons is really just a necessity to ensure that mistakes don't happen. Sure I agree some confirmations are just unnecessary, but to others, its a necessity. Maybe you might find it not necessary to yourself because you may be able to acknowledge the differences, but I can ensure you that a lot of lioden players don't see or process things the same way. In this case, I feel like they should add something to both trades and branches to make it more apparent that "Hey! Your putting this for Sb not Gb!" Or vise versa. Not necessarily a confirmation, maybe a CLEAR symbol or bolded/colored words to catch these mistakes easier.
So yes, you got my support!
