Tattoo Rentals Idea (in General)

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] December 9 2005 4:42 PM EST

I know people have given this thought about bringing Tattoo's back into rentals, but what about this idea?

Make it so tattoos can be rented again via Rentals, but make it so the tattoo owner cant get a gain out of it (Except the obvious money). Make it so when the tattoo is rented, its level's will not go up. This way only the rentee will get the gain by being able to use it. And when someone goes into rentals, they will only be able to see what is ever below their max tattoo.

What are your thoughts on this?

interesting...but unlikely...

I wouldn't do that, because if I'm going to rent my tattoo, i want the level to go up.
If i ever decide to loan out my tattoo, it will probably be for the cost of transfers + x amount (whatever I feel is appropriate) - y amount(cash back incentive based upon how much the tattoo level is raised for me)
Maybe make it a two-option thing, rent the tattoo for money or rent the tattoo for experience?

Renting it out for experience, the renter's max tattoo would have to be a minimum of the tattoo's level...although for nameds, that would be 104% of it, so maybe 105% of the tattoo's level, and the renter doesn't get any money.

Renting it out for money, the tattoo gains no experience, but the renter gets money for it.

Maybe also, different listing fees for each option, or something.

I remember when we first had tattoos, it was kinda fun, everyone was talking to everyone else about it all the time, and being able to rent them out to newbies promoted some interaction between people for some benefit. I miss those days.

Been asked for in the past.

Thats not what that thread is about, if you'd read it again you'd find out that its about losing lvl's on the tattoo when unequipping it.

"And when someone goes into rentals, they will only be able to see what is ever below their max tattoo. "

Why does this need to be in place? Since tattoos only function up to the MTL and only add PR up to the MTL, what would it matter if someone rented an oversized tattoo?

Ok, scratch that line then.

why dont ya just make a thread, that people can put their tatoos that they have for rent on, and people can cm them if they want, and then they can negotiate price..... since we cant have it on rentals.... this seems like a possible solution......right?

only problem with that is the xfer fees, especially without disounted xfer fee.

With my discount fee sending my 400k lvl tattoo, the xfer cost is $60k. I couldn't even begin to imagine an 800k lvl tattoo, without discounted xfer fees.

well then have the xfer fee's be reduced for rental purposes, or rent for such long periods of time that the persons paying of the xfer fee is worth it

Mikel December 10 2005 2:55 PM EST

I think the x-fer fee is Level / 10 for Tattoo's, and loaning them costs even more, cause it was put there to discourage people from loaning them out.
