A compromise for coupons
1: the value of a coupon
2: the versatility of roleplaying players have
3: the work the PR department has to do
Why not compromise?
It doesn't sound very unreasonable to me to have a week once a year, or maybe 3 days every 6 months where the PR department, would listen to people's reasons for changing their roleplaying situation and be willing to change their strings if the reason is good. This would allow for a compromise in points 2 and 3. However, the value of a coupon is then still in question. It seems to me that the coupon should not be a lifetime priviledge either, but yet it also seems to me that a strung item should have more inherent value than just a regular item and saying that it doesn't and that another whole coupon is need per strung item restring is wrong.
How about a compromise here as well. If one figures that a player has 21 slots... if all of these are strung and they have maybe 2 or 3 in inv that are strung as well then around 24 coupons.... how about a policy that would allow a person to change 6 strung items during this week or 3 day period for 1 coupon... that way during this period a player could obtain 4 coupons, have a good reason for roleplay change, get checked for appropriate string values, and get all their coupons changed. Everyone is then happy!
Hmm..maybe, maybe not, just a thought..
What im saying i guess, is that you have to see the issue from both sides, and you cant start putting out accusions left and right, unless you know what youre talking about.
mind the horrible spelling, raw telnet
