another gifter etc. Brilliant. I have said I like to gift and receive gifts. Where did I say that I forced any amount on anybody? Your interpretation. I said in my experience everybody I dealt with liked gifts and I receive loads of gifts from people I gifted earlier. Perhaps there is some basic mi...

Nope. It relies on a part of the game that goes away after your 4th is built.

But at 4 cities you could max out a market pretty easily. :D

Explain! Did I give you something, did I harass you? You posted a view opposed to mine in this forum. Subsequently, I pointed out that your view was opposed to mine. If dissension is too much for you to bear, perhaps you shouldn't post. What does that mean, is giving people stuff a crime? I don't b...

Erm...umm...but they don't live in the desert....at least not for long.

If we're basing on history or real facts, the monkeys are most likely from Punt or the Mediterranean.

But I did one thing differently: I asked first. "Would you like a small welcome package?" He answered that he would, so I loaded up the boats and clicked Send. That's great Jim. If everyone was like you, the problem would be solved for me. The anti-gifts crowd would do well to recognize that gifter...

Hey deano, don't give up on the trade wall. You may have hit the wall at a slow time, but if you're patient, and try various times throughout you day, I'm sure you'll find someone willing to trade with you.

If gifters would stop selfishly forcing their 'kindness' on people who don't ask for it, it would solve the problem. Why can't the gifters, who claim to be doing something nice, actually do something nice and offer help instead of forcing it on people who don't want it. bevus has a nice approach, he...

My solution has been to put the unwanted gifts on the market at .1 bread. It reduces the impact of thousands of goods to hundreds of bread, which imho is much easier to ignore, and makes someone else happy at the same time, which was the gifters original intent.

You are correct in your assumption. You might appreciate this link.

Yes, some people do trade scarabs for goods. Check on the trade wall, and be patient. The scarab traders will turn up eventually.

Repeating that message helps. Agreed. However, I am convinced the conversation has a point. Interesting how rules have evolved. Clearly Nile Online is a social game and to a certain extent you police each other. Like what a 'fair trade is', or what is right or wrong. ... So....looks like the commun...

Sure josh, but if we all have to keep repeating ourselves for your benefit, the conversation will go nowhere. Perhaps reading less would allow you to retain more. I imagine that many people do like receiving gifts and unsolicited donations. I don't. I restarted in Sabah because all the gifts had tak...

When I saw Mark's post a couple of days ago I started to reply and then stopped myself. While I am guilty of chatting on the Trade wall in Sabah, and was forming an argument regarding why this was okay, I realized that there was some merit in his post. I've been on the trade wall in Sabah, by myself...

I imagine that many people do like receiving gifts and unsolicited donations. I don't. I restarted in Sabah because all the gifts had taken much of the enjoyment out of playing the game. Nobody asked if I would like help, they just sent it. With only 10 ships to my name sending back thousands in uns...
