Hm, a 95.5% withdraw fee sounds good.

if you can cheat by taking out 31 at a time then it should just be removed

Well, it's current setting is ineffective. If you put money in overnight, you get 3% interest on it, and only lose 1.5% when you take it out. It doesn't really lock your money in. Plus, you can take it out in small quantities so you don't suffer the penalty.

Same thing if you increase it. It'll just make people take ore out in small quantities so they don't lose so much. All that will really do is annoying the people having to make their withdrawls in small quantities.

I guess since it's rather ineffective, it doesn't matter too much what happens with it. Although, it seems like it's a bit of an annoyance. Might as well just get rid of it.


Btw, it withdraw 500 ore, the fee is only 8 ore. Hardly significant.

Maybe if you limited the number of transactions that could be made in a month? Add service charges, put chains on the pens, etc. You might actually start earning a profit and attract some business. J/k  :P

But seriously, you could remember the rounding errors, so people can't cheat the withdrawl fee. Then there would be more point to it. You could also try adding a charge if they try to make more than a certain number of transactions per month. That would help keep money in it's place.

create an atm that lets you take out the ore asap.

thought the bank it takes a day to get out but you get 100% of it no fees

the am could have a withdraw fee for every 100 ore taken outt. call it a atm fee as your getting it asap like in real life at some banks.

my other idea for this is that we could have different withdwaing fees for the atm for how much ore you have in the bank.
ore               fee
0-1000   ---> 0.00%
1001-2000 ->1.00%
2001-3000 ->2.50%
3001-4000 ->3.00%
ect...

Generally fees go down as you have more in the bank. It kinda helps encourage people to keep there money in the bank. (Which seems to be the purpose of having a withdrawl fee).

i think the withdrawl fee should be removed and instead have an atm service charge which is capped. then, by the use of a credit card this fee is eliminated but the use of which introduces an APR system.

is that too much?
