Moral of the story here kids, is; Don't buy anything off the GTN at 2 am when you're dead tired

Oh well, back to grinding dailies
Nothing good happens after 2am.

I've learned to never ever ever mess with the GTN once I get tired.

I must say...I'm impressed.

Usually forum posts like this go along the lines of "waaah someone had something overpriced on the GTN. BW give me back my money!"

I've learned that one should never list/buy/vendor or manage files after midnight or early in the morning.

A while ago when the Hydra set was selling for around a million I accidentally listed one at default price late at night. Another time I accidentally sold my two Dread Master [augmented] implants from my tank set (I was wearing my DPS set) while cleaning out some of my inventory. And another time early in the morning after installing a new harddrive I decided to copy my old files to the new one and then reformat the old harddrive. Well I copied my game installations over, but not my collection of class story videos which contained half the class story of my Sniper and Shadow. Those last two hit right in the gut.

Thankfully for my implants the CS rep restored them within a couple days. They even restored them with the augments in them, as well as the two augment kits I had used on them. Funny thing if you take a closer look at what I just wrote, the implants I got were not augmented, however they came with the augments already in them. Unaugmented augmented implants.

For the files, I'm fortunate enough that I didn't put anything on the new drive before realizing my mistake, and was able to recover all of my files using a free program called recuva. I only had trouble with one file which lost its indexing but a little bit of work with virtualdub and it worked just fine again.

*phew*

yup... I've seen this tactic a few times. First time was on my Jedi Covenant armomech, where I'm far from rich, and I needed 2 more kit parts for another kit slot. Went to the GTN., clicked on the unit price once or twice, it looked the lowest, but it wasnt, the item was red (not enough credits). Taking a closer look, what it seemed decimals were actually thousand separator
I think the trick is actually putting the highest price, so when you click a few times to get the lowest one, the item is at the top and it seems ok because of the decimal thing..... pretty low tactic..

That's why I've gotten in the habit to click on the price column and toggle it so the lowest prices show first. Quoting from Admiral Ackbar - "It's A Trap!"

Ouch.
I got a harsh lesson in not paying attention that time I accidentally deleted my main character.
Ever since then I'm always extra cautious when doing anything like spending money when I'm tired.

How did you even manage that? You have to type down the name before deleting it.

You just have to type "delete". You might be thinking of another game.
