Buy a picture, set price.

    My suggestion is related to the babetrader platform. And i hope it is a new idead.

    So after i buyed a new picture it is very difficult to set the price fast and easy. Maybe someone could buy my new babe before i even can set a price :eek:. I read about sorting functions under 'My pics', but it would be even better if we can set the price on the After-Buy-Screen. Maybe just add the sell price option under the "You currently own this pic"-text.

    Best Regards

    I'm not 100% sure that setting a price should even be allowed. It results in everyone pricing their pictures unreasonably high and kills any back and forth trading (or fighting) over pictures.

    I think it's good you hunt for your favorite babes, maybe an option would be to makes some pics exclusive through auctions or so....
    Or you have to make a game level :). For example you could gain something like experience for being active, the you level like paragon in Diablo 3. And each level you gain +1 slot for an image where you can set the price. So the user can set it for gaining more points or still owning the picture.

    Totally agree. One option is to limit the number of pictures one can own. That will encourage more trading.

    No limiting is never good that would abort all motivation after some time i like my idea with the leveling aspect more.

    I've noticed that the game might be called babe trader but it is really babe hoarder. Some set the prices for every picture they have in the multimillion range. This definitely inhibits trading. I keep most of mine in the 150 - 250 range with a few exceptions for the ones I have that are high-gainers.

    Yes that is why originally you couldn't set the price. It just went a percentage over the bought price, so that people could buy it away from you. There were complaints about it in this thread. People wanted to set the sell price which led to the hording. That's why I put in the auction, so for a limited time, pictures could be traded the way they were originally traded. Personally, I would rather go back to the old system and not have people set their prices.

    A ceiling price could be set but some may complain that it's restricting them. I enjoy the game regardless. I had my knee replaced last summer and was stuck at home for 10 weeks. The game helped to pass the time. By the way, I got my money. Thank you. It seems odd being in 58th place after being in the top 5 for the past couple months.

    After reading through all these threads I can understand all the viewpoints.

    Having a quicker way to set the price would be ideal. There's been many times I've purchased a picture, scrolled through all my pictures to find it and set the price, only to find that has been taken by someone else for 15 BTP.

    Because of the very high prices being set on pictures (thereby inhibiting any trading), it seems the best way to make points is to have a lot of pictures. One gets one point for each view and I find that 90% of my pictures are in the zero views section (at the bottom) so one can only depend on gaining points from the top 10%.

    I use Facebook to promote my pictures but they are a pain in the ass. When I first started using them I would post one picture to about 6 groups and then would be hit with a 24-hour restriction from posting for "spamming". That finally stopped for a while and I was able to post freely. A couple weeks ago I was hit with another restriction for "posting too rapidly". Now every time I want to post a picture I have to fill out one of those CAPTCHA things for each and every post.
