Poll: What is your opinion on no_selling?

OK, the discussion on no_selling is getting kind of heated, and there is some question as to whether people out there really like it or not. So, maybe if we get a definitive opinion on it, we can stop speculating on that and actually say "See? That's what people really think." Or not. If nothing else, we can amuse ourselves pushing the little voting buttons.

Yeah, thats missing :-)

My reaction when it first came up was that that was the option I had been waiting for, for like forever. No question if I would like it, I knew I would. I would like it even if gold drops did not increase.

However I still go back and forth between them, because both versions might need debugging (but answered that I only play no selling, because that's were I am in spirit )

Best response to this is: Well, what are you waiting for?

I have played the no selling option only once thought it was intresting but haven't played a variant that has it since then but will say it should be a birth option and not choice that you can change mid game

Is it not a birth option in V? It definetly should be.
I voted for the 1st choice, but I have occationally switched back, just not often enough to warrent voting #3.

As a developer I voted for option #1. As a player I was tempted to vote for option #3 because selling can be fun in a flavorful kind of way.

I voted the same way as d_m. I like the collection aspect of the selling game to some extent, but not necessarily the actual selling part. Maybe if the player had to find certain items to support the research of Steamband-style enhancements...
