trading infrastructure deeds

Did the prohibition on the transfer of infrastructure deeds go through? --Barrister 15:55, 4 April 2006 (PDT)

Yes, it did. I am unable to transfer any of mine on Cobalt. There is no message, it just doesn't allow you to drop it into the trade box. However, it doesn't appear to have auto-reverted deeds back to governors that were already traded before the change. --Fannon 16:26, 4 April 2006 (PDT)
The change has been reversed on Ice. --Thunderbird 22:12, 19 April 2006 (PDT)

why dont i have a deed

I own an ironworks stall. i want to upgrade but i do not have the deed. why don't i have the deed and if possible where can i get my deed from

Stall owners do not get a deed no matter if its a deluxe stall or not, as they are renting space from a Bazaar. To get a deed, you need to own a shop which cost more money to own/operate.--Celiatr 14:25, 11 September 2007 (PDT)

ok thanks

Dormant Deed holders

What happens to deeds if the holder goes dormant or is deleted? I know, probably a different answer for ships and buildings.--Siriuskase 20:06, 10 January 2008 (PST)

Nothing happens with dormancy, the deed stays in the pirate's inventory (well, in the case of shoppes that have taxes to pay if nobody pays taxes then after a long time the building would probably dust and the deed would disappear). The ship deed and a deleted pirate case is covered in the article. I don't know that anyone has tested the deleted pirate thing with a shoppe deed. --Guppymomma 20:30, 10 January 2008 (PST)

Revert reasons

I reverted the last edit because it deleted all of the dates in the historical info, and my experience with locked ships and deleted owners directly contradicts what the edit stated. When several of the pirates in my Viridian crew got deleted for inactivity, their ships did not unlock until I stepped on board the ship. --Thunderbird 21:31, 23 March 2008 (PDT)

And attempting to test this has resulted in some weirdness. I tossed a deed to a locked ship to an alt, then deleted said alt. I'm not sure how deleted pirates are handled these days, but the pirate name resulted in "no such pirate" yet the ship remains locked. --Thunderbird 21:45, 23 March 2008 (PDT)
I think you need to wait 10 days for the name to free up. --Barrister 02:33, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
A /who results in "no such pirate." From past experience, this means the pirate is fully deleted. The alt was also freshly created for this purpose, I believe the extended deletion time only applies to pirates that have been around awhile. --Thunderbird 03:16, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
I recently recovered 15 deeds from ships, and some of them were locked until I stepped on board them. So yes, the information saying that the ship would be unlocked as soon as the pirate was deleted appears to be inaccurate. -- Vorky 02:43, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
The ship unlocked itself when I stepped on board just now. It was still locked on the dock screen. So it appears there might be a delay before the system registers a vessel owner as deleted. --Thunderbird 12:21, 24 March 2008 (PDT)

owner of housing deed not always the governor...

Specifically, I noticed tonight that BoomShackaLacka on Tigerleaf Mountain is owned by Crazysanta, while the governor of this island is Remorse. And those two pirates are not in the same flag.

Per the current wording of deeds for houses, a new governor supposedly gets all of those deeds automatically. Based on this observation (above), I'm wondering if this is actually the case for houses (and if so, then it would appear these deeds can be traded away, even out of one's flag), or if the auto-swap of deeds takes place only for "true" infrastructure buildings (i.e. bazaars and all government buildings).

Please advise. Thanks! -- Franklincain (t/c) 19:57, 27 June 2012 (PDT)

As a former governor, I can say with 100% certainty that housing deeds change hands when the governor changes. They're still tradable, however, which means the governor can almost instantly hand a deed off to someone else. --Fannon 20:07, 27 June 2012 (PDT)
