Era's Money Problems

For the past few weeks, a small portion of Era's population has been abusing a glitch to spawn upwards of $30 million. Most of this money is now held by Era players, and not the spawners themselves.
  • One month ago, the sum of all of the money in Era's bank accounts was around $10 million. We had one millionaire.
  • One week ago, we had 4 millionaires. The sum of the money in Era's bank accounts was $26 million.
  • Today, there are 8 millionaires on Era. 5 of them have at least $1.5 million. There are 3 people with at least $2 million. There is (and no I am not joking) $45 million in Era's bank accounts.

We are considering several plans to help combat this huge spike of money in the economy.
Plan A: Slow return through the raising of prices and the auctioning dead items (like old guns)
This plan would likely take a long time for effects to be noticeable, even if started right away with an auction a day.

Plan B: Taxation
This plan would tax players on a curve based on the amount of money a player has in the bank. For example, anyone with more than $1 million may lose 40% of their money. Anyone over $700,000 may lose 30%. Anyone over $500,000 may lose 20%. Anyone over $100,000 may lose 10%. Everyone else may lose 5%. These percentages are just examples, and are not important right now.

Plan C: Slash bank accounts
This plan would simply divide every bank account by a factor (such as 1.5) in order to return prices to somewhat the way they were before.

Plan D: Do nothing
Don't do anything to remove money from the economy except the the things that are already being done (such as occasional auctions).

Please feel free to offer suggestions beside what is listed here as well.

I will allow anyone who does not have access to the forums to submit a support ticket to "Contact an Admin > Chris" with their post. I will then post their suggestions (word-for-word) on the forums.

Until a decision is made, bank accounts have been zeroed to prevent the obvious hiding of money that will occur.

Your bank account will be restored on Wednesday, February 3rd, around 8:00 PM EST. By this time we will have made a decision, coupled with the feedback here, on what to do (if anything). Any money you make between now and Wednesday will not be taxed or sliced, and will be added to your old balance. We will resume the MP5 Navy auction then, which will end Thursday at 8 PM.

We cannot fully reset right now as we would just have to do it again once the dev server is complete. It would be best if this thread stays away from issues about the dev server and focuses instead on the problems at hand.

You can't find a Fail solution. Reset or nothing are the only two fair options. People saved up their cash and just because some ****tard messed with it does not mean people who kept cash instead of buying guns should lose money.

A way to help the economy would be to give me 100million and label me the money czar and I pay people as fit.

Not spam.

Don't reset era until the dev server is complete!!

Why would you want the satisfaction to go to the kids who did this? So they think they reset era?? NO.
