Starting around the beginning of January, I have been losing IP almost everyday since there are seldom any of the required items in the Scrap Shop.

This is unusual and has almost never happened in the more than four years I have been on IcePets. I am not sure why this is happening now.

Any ideas, anyone? Thanks for any insights!

@JaniceRuth I was thinking that maybe people are seeing what is being asked for as soon as a new day starts then buying out the scrap shop and placing things in there shop to make a profit. Its a good idea but kinda poopie at the same time smile_tongue.gif

@JaniceRuth I've noticed all the tokens disappearing from the scrap shop too. I take things out of storage for Litlbit's shop when they turn up in the Collector's Quest and it really isn't paying off. If it isn't paying off I sell the items rather than trying to do the quest. Other days I'll buy needed items if the quest pays off and then enough to do maybe 5 quests a day.

Personally I think it - excuse me - sucks when some find out what items are needed and buy them all up out of the Scrap Shop. For quite a while, that's what happened with the elusive green and orange tokens - they wound up in user shops.

In short I just do the quests if it pays off even with having to buy the items - but ya can't buy the items if others buy them up for their shops. That takes the fun out of it for me, at least.smile_unsure.gif

@Lokki,

Thanks for your suggestions. You have been very helpful. It is a good idea to only do the quest if it makes money.

I think it is better to not finish the quest and have the collector mad at me than to finish it and lose lots of iP.

I agree with you that it is no fun to use items out of storage or your shop just to finish the quest. I think if someone buys out the Scrap shop because they are working on their storage or their collections, that is fine. But I agree with you, they shouldn't buy out the Scrap Shop just to increase their profit in their User Shop.

This is just my two cents!smile_laugh.gif

@JaniceRuth And I agree with you completely! Usually I try to check in with the site features to see if someone has done the Collector's Quest, and if they have it's great to know ahead of time. I'll always say to myself "thank you JaniceRuth" or who ever has checked out the quest first.

If I happen to brave the quest first and it's way too out of line affordable for me, I just let it go for the day. You're right - better to have the Collector mad for a day than to lose ip.

@Hamchung77 it just depends upon the items requested and if you have to buy all the items to complete the quest. lower priced items add up to not much ip in return - higher priced items can add up to good ip pay off IF you have one or more of the items on hand.

it's best just to look at the pay off - am i making anything here - if the answer is no, then let the Collector's Quest go for a particular day.

Ah, thanks! It’s actually a quote from one of my favourite musicals, but I agree to it fully, so I decided to use it as my signature smile_heart.gif

@Hamchung77 Ooohhh I love Hamilton too! I've listened to the soundtrack on repeat so many times. I really want to see it on Broadway but it is way too expensive for me.

Thank you! I love my city! It’s just very far from all those places I want to go to, and Hamilton is... "there you are an ocean away; do you have to be an ocean away?" Just a quote ^^

@Hamchung77 Oh wow Hong Kong! I guess it's even more expensive for you since you'd have to fly all the way to the US smile_shock.gif

@Hamchung77 Ohhh that's so exciting! Have you been to the US before? I'm considering buying tickets for my boyfriend and I to go for his graduation, but I'm not sure if I'll have enough money >__<

No, I’ve never been there! The furthest place I’ve went to was Australia.
