Who bought out all my corn?

Yesterday someone bought out my corn. I had almost a whole chest full. The price was 8 corn for 1 gold ingot and by the end there was around 350 gold in the chest.

If anyone knows anything now is the time to speak up.

EDIT: 355 gold to be exact.

Wouldn't it be really helpful if there was a vendor mod that you can see purchase logs with and ban players from buying from it?

:P

Yes it would be, but one that doesn't look three or four years out of date. ;-)

Judging from your reaction, should I be adding you to my list of suspects?

I'm talking about the appearance of the mod as per the screenshots. The formspecs have that dull black background from the days before "default.gui_bg" and friends where widely used (I still think this should be handled in the Minetest core but that's another matter) and the textures bear some stylistic resemblance to the old chest and vending machine textures (and feature harder lines and bolder colors also more common in older textures) rather than the newer "cleaner" textures found in more recent mods.

That aside, I don't think this mod is a suitable replacement for this server. Conceptually it is quite different from the current vending machines (note that it appears that in this mod vending machines have their own inventory rather than getting items from chests) and the configuration looks more complicated than the current vending machines.

That's not to say that the mod is bad, I will reserve judgement on that until such time as I actually try it out. But from an aesthetic point of view I feel that it looks outdated.
