Usually if you want people to stop making tickets about an issue that you already know about you would make a thread about it no? It doesn't help having updated it without letting people know.

What the **** they have done to break the character transfer service? I have a character sold waiting for transfer since 30 hours ago and an incoming bought character in the same situation. The character bazar is stuck and the forum keeps going, we DESERVE a thread explaining more than just saying a date when they expect to fix the issue and upgrade it after that.

Issues with character transfers
reported by CCP Navigator | 2012-06-28T18:58:44Z

We have noticed issues with character transfers today, June 27, and have temporarily disabled this option until further notice. The resonsible developer team is working on restoring this service again, a solution can be expected not before Friday, June 29. We will keep you updated about the situation.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

was wantting to sale a toon was told you could use 2 plex to do transfer how is this done and is their a link for a step by step make sure to do it right ....thanks

That would also be my question

Do you need 2 Plex in the item hangar in the current station ?

An addition to the FAQ on how the plex payment actually works would be great.

Yes, the toon you are selling receives ISK.

The buyer sends you account name.

You start the transfer from the account management page.

So if I want to buy a toon. I'll need to send the ISK first witht my account name to the char I'm buying?

You need to make sure both yourself and the buyer are agreed on price first, you can't just send him ISK and hope :)

But if you've reached an agreement then you need to send the character that's being sold the ISK and the account name you want it transferred to.

Just asking if people could just randomly bid on things with nothing holding that toon to its bid.

They do it unfortunately. I've had to relist after accepting offers and waiting with no payment.

Scams are bannable so false bids should be included in that, however people will sometimes state "retracted" to let the seller know so we aren't hung out to dry when other legit buyers are excluded and perhaps buy a different character and now don't have the ISK for their first choice.

Happened to a different character already.

I was wondering if I get to change the name/appearance/gender of the toon if I buy one or am I stuck with what someone else made it?

Why there is nothing regarding character trade?

What is legit way to trade characters? I mean is it possible to trade character without moving any isk?

The character being sold must be in an NPC corporation at the time of posting.

If you are pricechecking, rather than selling, then the character need not be in NPC corp, am I correct?

So an offered is accepted, it may not be explicit on the Bazaar posting that this person bid this much and it is an agreed upon deal, but there are private Evemails discussing finer details, agreements, time, etc. Are these useful in the transaction process to prevent scam?

If GuyAWillScamYou is selling a toon, auction style, and GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx throws out an offer in Evemail because maybe he never used Character Bazaar and was trying to login through (example), GuyAWillScamYou accepts in an Evemail.

So GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx is all gitty over his new (maybe) toon, send a response Evemail, says, "Holy moly, gee willikers batman! That's super! I'll be on tomorrow, I'll send you the isk and we can make the exchange then!"

GuyAWillScamYou says "Uh, sure man, that sounds good." (Evemail)

*Le 24hrs later*

GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx and GuyAWillScamYou strike up a private convo, "o/" is exchanged, they reiterate the terms of the Evemail, both agree, GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx sends 10 billion isk, GuyAWillScamYou says "Thanks", totally pulls a YoaMingFace.jpg and bounces, never heard from again. GuyBBeenScammedHardBro is now devastated, has no isk, no toon, cries, files a petition.

Will CCP be able to help GuyBBeenScammedHardBro with this since most of the agreements were through Evemail? Or does the thread for the toon for sale have to say "GuyAWillScamYou is agreeing to sell GuyAWillScamYou to GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx for 10 billion isk" "GuyBPlzDontScamMeKThx accepts GuyAWillScamYou's generous offer."?

Thanks in advance!
