    That is a good point, but some don't like to wait, like me. I started merching with only 20k and now I have 200k+ after only 3 days of merching.

    I concur. I think this would get sticky-ed almost immediately by STS.

    Even if it is a "good" friend. Make sure u know them in real life. U never know who someone is through the internet. You can never trust what they may do. So make sure it's ur real bff from ur real life!!!!

    Depending on how "into" the game u r. I don't think it would be a bad idea for all merchants to get a little platinum to buy the auction slots. Then they can blow the rest on some sets and gold. You don't really need platinum if u don't use it. Just to get the slots mainly.

    Great blog! This can really help new players out a lot. But, some thoughts.

    Realize that if this is for new players to make money fast, they don't have 1-4 million gold. They need to earn some money the hard way then start small (i.e. level 25 crystalline, onyx, etc.)

    Another thought to remember is that how long the 3 day up-link lasts. By the time the 3 day comes down, the price could have changed so much (either up, and no one wanted to buy your item, or down, and no one saw your item) that it was a waste. The easier way to go is the 23 hour or 11 hour because you can put it back up for an appropriate cost to the changing market.

    Just my suggestions on merching!
