Default Delete thread, please.

So I know that begging is a bit of an annoyance, and eTO hasn't figured out a proper way to sort out the bad apples. Sometimes ignoring is difficult, too.
SOOOOO...
I thought maybe I should come up with funny ideas to confuse them. Should anyone else come up with other ideas, I'm open. But the idea isn't so much to troll, but to confuse them with your doings.
-------
  • "I'll give you 1m galder if you can give me your essence through your nose." Or any ridiculous thing that a person has on their body that they don't need. LIKE EAR WAX! 8D
  • Walk around the player, inspecting them, making sound effects as though you were looking them from the ground up. And then reply,"So, how shall I devour your soul? Whole, or in pieces? Maybe scrambled with my eggs and chocolate.."
  • Anything from the conversation in Metal Gear Solid 2 in which the main character's communication device begins to break down. THAT is good confusion material.
  • "Want to buy a magical Chia pet? It comes with super-sized hats for each ear."
  • "Time is a spiral, space is a curve; I know you get dizzy but, try not to lose your nerve."
  • "How many times do I have to tell you that drilling holes in your head will not relieve stress?"
  • Sing winter-time songs to them. This goes double in July, possibly somewhere hot like Tap or Para. And demand figgy pudding. LOTS of it.
  • Ask them to attend a Trickster funeral for your best friends' pants, or some other sort of clothing. MOURN THOSE PANTS, SON (in this case, copper/golden trunks)! Tell them they were a credit to clothing anywhere You could give them one galder for being a mourner a the funeral. At some point in time, people were actually paid to cry at funerals. If it makes its way to Event Garden, you have achieved greatness.
  • Tell them you're writing a fanfic and need advice on what not to say to the bunyip in Mermaid Palace.
  • *A bunyip is an mythological creature that lives in water and resembles what could be described as a hodge-podge of many creatures.
  • -Yes, there is no bunyip, but they most likely won't know.
  • "Do you think this makes my tail look big? Or is my head too small?"
  • You could say you're a beggar disguised as a rich person, and that you gave the original host's body to Stella because they were stupid. You know how she hates stupid people.

    If you're in a lush area with plant-type monsters, sit down with said beggar and ask if the plant monsters look like prep salads or jellyfish; press further to see if they will blend by putting them all under a drill. The measurement from said drilling should be 5-7 pounds of compost.

"Sorry, I'm poor."

Works just fine without making you look like an ass.

You mean when people ask you for money?

How about the simplest method: I never respond to them.

A response isn't always necessary nor desirable. For example, if someone flames or trolls you, you do NOT have to respond back and get baited into a cauldron of drama.

If someone asks for a trade or asks for money right away I reject and do not reply; if they chat first and ask in sort of a nice way later I do not mind giving 50k galders or so to make them happy.

I do not mind much beginners who ask for money; they tend to stop immediately after a rejection or some money given. More annoying for me are more experienced players who try "bartering" too much, and keep trying to get what they want for a longer period of time than beginners, like a few who try offering half to third market price on uniques or rare items and keep whispering you to accept the offer, even when you keep refusing their "offers".

To a certain degree, I admit being a jerkfish, as that's an annoyance; at roughly level 10-20-ish, the player should already know how to farm, and figure how much things cost that are relatively vital to them. With Jewelia and Fantasia, pricing differs.

Maybe something is quite expensive, and the player doesn't have enough. The answer to that is simple, though tedious, and it is to go farming/drilling for quests and use whatever coupons they find.
I'm stingy and cheap; I made my insignificant in-game currency by selling them at lower prices. Plus quests, hunting and the like. There's always that, "Crap, now I gotta find something to sell because I forgot the banks cost X amount," or,"Hey, could you help me get a job badge?" I can easily make up 50k, and so I have no problem giving it.
Being polite and concrete are rare things I see, and where it comes up, I got no problem with encouraging it. :/ *shrug* Happens in all MMOs, it seems. Such is life. If it's the "give nao plox", it tells me they don't have the patience or the pacing to go get it their affairs taken care of. I'm not saying grind/drill 24/7 for a game. But, y'know, when you have your free time, go help yourself. If that makes any sense. It's a hassle that seems to be the legit way of getting the needs met (by this, I'm trying to to tread too heavily into MyShop business).

But then you have those people that, even if you have all of your options set to "NO", and they still won't listen. They spam you while you're moving, so you're frozen. Luckily it can be recorded in chat logs, but party requests aren't. These people become very hard to ignore or get away from. I could argue "eye for an eye", but someone would just as quickly reply "you'll both be blind, why bother?".

And there doesn't seem to be a blacklist/mute button as far as I know.
Though, of course, the report button is fine too.

I empathize with you on the second part. Even though I had that happen to me once, it gripes me

I simply ignore the beggers. It's pretty easy when I usually keep my chatbox closed all the time. Means I don't have to say anything anyway.

When it's people that are in need of items that I have tons of anyway? Well, if they ask nice enough I tend to drop some on the ground for them.

Normally I would just say sorry I'm broke(or bankrupt) and then walk away till I lose them, or just simply cancel and straight away run away.

I just thought of this though, "You must sell your soul to me first"

I always have my trade off so that players don't randomly come trade me to beg for things.
I also ignore them by pretending to be afk (I'm usually 90% afk for real lols).

I suppose it is the way in which how askew my brain is, but there's a fine line between "Can I/May I" and "aggressive bargaining". By this, I mean continuing to badger you, even stalk you and open up a party bulletin to call you a scammer.

Though, never would it occur in my evilness to simply carry an abundance of PPDs with me. I thought you could only get them in the Fiesta Zone? I am a coward, and so I never venture there--the older Zone. Now I don't know what's going on with the inventory of any such store near in the new one.
Oh, if only I could simply throw mind-controlling comedic props at their characters in-game and force them to do my drilling..

I do not care about a few hundred K either way in anything, i have been on my accounts before and had to ask for money so i just could get to mega or use the bank, just 10k and a couple ppd's to satisfy that character or even 10k most of the time. half the people ignore me otherhalf just giv me what i ask for.

When i find a begger i tell them to go earn their own money. or if it looks like they need it I give them 50k-200k and a few ppd's


p.s oh i also sometimes ask why? why they need it? for pots? for a nice looking hat they want? for teliport services? find out this and respond accordingly.

I don't even have newbs begging or asking me for money. The only thing I ever seem to get is they stand next to me (usually when I have my guardian summoned) and send me a random friend request. When I reject, they follow me around the map, not saying a word. Just... little silent stalkers. They don't make it any less obvious they're stalking either. I could run off into a corner of the map where no one goes and they will stalk me there and stand next to me!

Ifff they ask really nicely and tell me for what they need it for I might give in, I did it a few times in the past, but random trading, not being able to ask properly (plz, pls, etc), I'd ignore/block them on the spot.

^ yeah I tend to give them what they want if they ask nicely too...even though I am poor myself.

Most of the time I ignore them, pretend to be afk or just tell them I am poor too ;_;
