editing problem?

Postby bookworm » Thu Sep 22, 2011 11:18 am

Does anyone else have problems where editing a post makes you lose money? I mean when it shouldn’t?
Sometimes if I go and edit a post, not removing anything just changing some formatting, I lose random amounts of money. Sometimes rather large amounts.
It seems to only be certain posts, but I can’t narrow it down to any specific criteria.

Edit:

It just happened again!
I edited a post, adding words, so I should have gained money, and I lost $1.33 :x

Maybe in a specific sub-forum? I don't know. But that did happen to me once.... A long time ago.

Seemed like it at first, but it’s happened elsewhere now. I don’t remember all of them, but the two most recent were:
I edited my thread in Crestwood, adding something, and I lost quite a large amount.
I edited one of my posts in Odyssey 105, not adding or changing anything, just coloring some words, and lost a few dollars.
From now on I’ll keep track of every time it happens and see if there’s some common factor.

As you are a mod, does editing other peoples posts make you lose money?

It does not, but it does make the original poster gain and/or lose money. For example, if they post something that should be in a quote tag, and a mod edits in a quote tag, they will lose the appropriate amount of money for that text.

Lose money. Not loose! :mad: Lose is when something is taken away from you - loose is when something is the opposite of tight.

Sorry, that's one of my big grammar pet peeves. :P

I know the difference between loose and lose. :roll:
That would be a typo, not a grammatical error.
But actually loose is a verb meaning to release, so it still works.


It hasn’t happened since the last one I reported, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still happening because it’s only certain posts. Even when it was happening semi-regularly to me a few months ago it was still pretty rare.

Well, it's a typo you make frequently, so I just thought I'd point it out. \:D/

Indeed it is. I have trouble typing words that have double letters. (Or are similar to words that have double letters.)

Edit:

It just happened again.
I edited this post, obviously adding what is after ‘Edit’, removing nothing, and lost $3.56

That's happened to me a few times. But usually it was only about $1 or less. I think when I was in Crestwood I added text and it took $2 or $3 away, and even when I didn't add or remove words it did the same thing.

Yes, back when it was happening frequently I tried editing my Crestwood thread a few different ways, because that is definitely the thread that has done it the most, and one of the things I tried was submitting it without making any changes, and I actually lost a huge amount of money.

Edit:

Edited a post in Mafia 3, just removing one letter from a word, not even the whole word, and lost $10.32

Crestwood definitely seems to be the most common. I keep losing small amounts almost whenever I edit there, and one time lost about $80 if I remember correctly. I mean I just changed the words to center, and it swipes about $.39-to about $4-somthing! It drives me crazy. Especially since I am always editing my shop, updating the sales and specials and such. It sure can get on one's nerves, can't it, to add three sentences and loose $3. :x

I've had it happen a few times but I don't remember when and which forum.

Crestwood threads are definitely the main offenders. I don’t edit mine very often, but when I do it is almost a guarantee to do this. Perhaps the site has trouble figuring out how to assign cash for images, and having to frequently recalculate them when the posts are edited causes confusion.

atm I have [-$1.06] ' :| and I have no idea what happend
^AIOluver^

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.
