Post Answered: DOUG RIP OFF????

So, I was about to trade with Doug. He was looking for two common gems. I had one of them but not the other, but he said that I didn't have the gems he needed. In the past, I have had only one of them and I still was able to trade with him. Is that a glitch?

At the beginning because he had a nasty habit of removing ALL of the extras you had of a specific gem, they were a bit more lax about it. I know I had a couple of the early trades where I had negative values in the gems.
Once that issue had been addressed all of the gems were restored to their rightful place and Doug has been taking only what is required, no less, no more.
I would have to say what we experienced in the beginning was more an exception to the norm.

I don't think it is a glitch. He usually will not trade unless you have both of the gems that he wants.....Sorry...

I think that the more you trade with him and the prizes go up in value he will ask for more. He often asks for more than one gem and if you don't have them both he won't trade.

I just started trading with him today...

On one account he took a Lemon Drop and gave me ice cream, on the other account he took 2 River Ripples for an ice cream.

I guess it all depends on what he wants at the moment...

huntsm is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Re: DOUG RIP OFF????

I had others tell me that it is a glitch if he does trade with you and you don't have the gems he wants. He's not supposed to trade with you unless you have all the gems he asks for.

So basically if you traded before and didn't have all the gems, you got lucky. I did too once before, but now he won't trade unless I have all the gems he asks for.

Ii think it' a glitch, and that you just got lucky. I mean that's like saying, give me two dimes and I will give you this piece of... I don't know... gum! 2 dimes=1 piece of gum. Then you only give me one dime, uhhh I'm not giving you the gum (Sorry!). I believe that you did encounter a glitch. Also remember that the more you trade with him, the more valuable gems he is going to want.

Sorry for the bad example... it was all I could think of!

Hi Ladywebkinz,
This is not a bug, glitch, or ripoff. The program is supposed to trade the requested gems for a prize. If you don't have the gems, there is no trade.

There was a bug in the beginning that allowed a person to make a trade on "credit". The balance of a gem went into the negative range. After the first few days this bug was partially fixed. Now the program checks (if number of a particular gem = 0, then no sale).

The people who had negative balances the first few days have still been able to trade on "credit". Ganz should check for the negative balances (if number of a particular gem <= 0, then no sale).

If you look in the gem hunt box in the Curios Shop (or a room) it does NOT display the negative numbers. It just shows 0, not -1. The only place the negative numbers show is when you are trading with Doug.

I suspect that Ganz will fix this bug soon. With all of the Webkinz Insiders testing the system, it will hopefully not be long. There may be differences between the various servers. They do not always update all the servers at the same time.
