6.39 Organisational Credit Sales
The Credit Sales system is a semi-automated system for cities, houses, and divine orders to run credit sales for the members of the organisation without requiring manual tracking or intervention. Credit sales are configured, by the mortal leader of an organisation, with a pool of credits available for sale, a default price per credit, and a default limit on how many bound or unbound credits each member can buy. This can be further refined with the definition of rules that can specify a different limit and price for bound or unbound credits based on permissions. Credit sales are intended to be transparent to the organisation as a whole and as such, all settings and rules will be visible to any member of the org. When a credit sale is opened or closed, there will be an announcement to all logged in members, as well as a message written to the organisation logs. The Pool -------- The pool is an allocation of credits that will be available for sale to members of the organisation. If the organisation does not have enough credits to cover the pool, the sale will not be able to be opened. If for any reason the organisation ceases to have enough credits to cover the pool (or the remaining amount once open) the sale will close automatically. The sale will also end automatically if the pool of credits is consumed. There is a hard set limit that a pool must be at least 200 credits and no more than 50% of the current amount of credits that the organisation holds. Allocating credits to the pool does not remove them from the organisation until they are actually sold. If you withdraw credits from the organisation outside of the sale and there are not enough left to fund the pool or the amount remaining to be sold, the sale will automatically close. Rules ----- Rules can be used to specify custom limits and prices based on permissions using the same permissions syntax as the library permission system (HELP PERMISSIONS). Rules are processed from the top down and the first match applies. If no matching rule is found, the default price and limit will be used. Rules can only be changed while the sale is in a closed state. To restrict people from buying any credits, simply add a rule for them with any non-zero price and a limit of 0. Purchasing bound or unbound credits adds up to the same total so having permission to purchase 10 bound or 10 unbound means you can buy 10 in total. There are two inherent rules that will always take precedence over any player-defined rules: you must be a member of the org running the sale and you must be averaging at least 5 hours per week of activity. It is important to remember when defining rules based on organisation rank that the permission is a check of *at least* the specified rank. This is where a leader needs to take care with the order of rules. e.g. RANK 5 OF MERCHANTS would match anyone in the Grand Merchant Collective who is House Rank 5 or higher.

Examples -------- Hashan wants to run a city credit sale with 250 credits where citizens can buy 10 credits at 5000 gold for bound or 7500 gold for unbound. Members of the Hashanite Legion clan will have an extra allocation so that those in the 'Corporals' position (6) will get 15 and those in the 'Captains' position (3) will get 20.
