This isn't NEW news, it has been happening for a least a decade, but it seems to be escalating and with the recent threads about MANY people losing thousands of items from their inventory at a gulp, it pretty much fits in. Today I went over to a venue that opens on the 9th to get a copy of goods to send to bloggers. I had checked and rechecked and RECHECKED my vendors (only two - one fatpack and one gacha) and sent items to an alt who doesn't have modify permissions to make sure things were correct. Like at least an hour worth of checking. The permissions had CHANGED. Both in the copy vendor AND in the gacha (oddly -- or not -- on the same items) HMMMMMM. I was particularly alert to the issues this month (hence checking ONCE AGAIN before grabbing for the group) because last month at the same venue my gacha machine had been replaced by and older version (sort of like a roleback but not of the sim as the correct gacha was brought over and placed) -- one without a script and one with -- again -- wrong permissions. I lost a lot of sales on the opening day and a half until a customer wrote. Yes, I should have checked but was overbooked and working elsewhere. I WILL BE MORE COGNIZANT in the future. So, since there is nothing we can DO about this (including checking several thousand items in stores -- so not going there) I wanted to at least warn merchants that this is happening -- and apparently at an escalated rate. It seems fairly logical to assume this has some connection to the other database issues talked about the last few weeks. Happily I didn't have any items that had become full perm. That's a relief anyway.
