    Yeah everyone wants to earn a bit too much money here. If everyone stopped asking for ridiculous prices for a somewhat cheap pixel thing, yeah then maybe it could be somewhat stabilized. You couldn't really force a price on things.

    I guess things will be even in a due time, but yeah people are not gonna buy them for overprices either unless they have like extreme art skills or have stuff themself to sell.

    I mean if you're paying viritual currency for a virtual pixel collectible. It's worth whatever people want to pay. There's no such thing as a "too expensive" collectible. If anything, collectible prices have plummeted. ;-;

    Exactly this. You can either let your collectibles go for realistic prices and make tbt or you can be stubborn and have no buyers. Jacob's collectible thread is a good example of this.

    Literally the only reason I have so much TBT is because there's nothing I want to buy.

    I only ever buy stuff if it's a one-time thing (like the flea).

    Prices ARE dropping for collectibles, just not as fast as some would want.

    Speaking on rarer collectibles, as someone who sells as well as own a few, it's not really being "stubborn" in my case. I love all the collectibles I have now and if I don't get the price I value it for, then I'm absolutely fine with keeping it. Forum bells can only buy so much nowadays, it's not like in the past where the TBT marketplace was bustling with activity and different collectibles. Before, my thread would be on page 4 or 5 by the end of the day but now my thread will stay on the first page despite not even bumping it.

    For older collectibles, there's even less in circulation than before due to so many inactive members. So as much as the "old prices" shouldn't be written in stone, people should also be realistic with their offers. It wasn't easy for us earn bells to get these collectibles either, either through acnl cycling, art, participating in fairs, or just straight playing the market by buying low and selling high. Everyone who has those collectibles that people are whining is too expensive, spent time and effort to get it.

    On another note, I don't really see any way to fix the economy here without pissing someone off but I think the staff has done a good job by releasing so many new collectibles in the past 2 years so that everyone has a chance of getting something without breaking the bank.

    Yeah it is, unless you can do massive things to earn like 30k tbt at a whim(unless you have like old collectibles), like having art shops or stuff and people are buying. I mean you can't expect people to buy things for too much, then you'd have to bump your thread til you die.

    (i guess you are a bit bias with that opinion, but yeah...)

    I have to say that in order to save the marketplace, we need to come up with more spending opportunities. Somehow, collectibles aren't enough (even newer collectibles).

    Some ideas I have:

    - Purchasable themes. We can finally have the Woods Theme year-round, but you'll need to pay 1,000 TBT per new theme.
    - Customizable rooms on profile. Everyone gets their own virtual room accessed through their profile. You can buy rights to a furniture series or a set from the TBT shop, and it's tradeable. You can also have your favorite villagers in your room.
    - Customizable character. May appear in room and on profile.

    Of course, the staff can make certain objects limited stock.

    Thanks to Bowie for avatar and twins for signature.

    Have a feeling this would require quite some more server space, hosting, and the costs for those as well, even if I like your idea.

    I guess re-releasing more of the old pixels or making more of the current ones could be a solution(like having more restock, old fair collectible raffles etc.), but yeah then those who have them from the start or bought them expensive will flip :^)

    I guess stubborn doesn't apply to everyone. I wasn't specifically targeting anyone, but I'm just saying to be willing to negotiate is all. And even you yourself acknowledge it, it isn't easy to earn tbt so it's not just sellers who had put in effort, it's the buyers as well? It isn't exactly whining when that's the reality? Most people here aren't trying to lowball if they can help it I would think, but certain prices are no longer amounts that most people here can afford.
