Many of us saw the unfortunate situation of a fren who lost a very nice gotchi due to fat fingering recently. While there may be some improvements we can do on the frontend UI to help prevent these issues, I’d also like to get the community’s input on another more permanent solution.
Idea: Add a two-minute window for all new listings in which they cannot be purchased, only cancelled by the listing creator.
The listings could appear in the Baazaar, or they could be hidden by default until the grace period has finished (except visible by the listing creator).
This would effectively prevent fat fingers, as the listing creator could see their mistake and react in time to remove the listing.
Potential side effect – those who manage baazaar bots could program their bots to purchase listings exactly when the grace period extends, essentially make it impossible for human participants to purchase undervalued listings in the baazaar.
What do you think frens?
