April 2, 2013 has arrived, and we have begun the first phase of Magic Box Shutdown. As of today, Merchants are no longer able to list unlimited-quantity items for L$10 or less using Magic Boxes. By noon PT tomorrow, April 3, 2013, any active, unlimited-quantity listings for L$10 or less using Magic Boxes will be unlisted. Note that the following will still be allowed:
- Magic Box listings priced at L$11 or higher.
- All Magic Box listings with limited quantity items, regardless of price.
Note that the second deadline is fast approaching. On April 16th, 2013:
- Merchants will no longer be able to list unlimited-quantity items using Magic Boxes, regardless of price.
- Any remaining active, unlimited-quantity listings using Magic Boxes will be unlisted, regardless of price.
For the time being, limited-quantity items can continue to use Magic Boxes and will not be affected. “Limited-quantity” refers to items that the Merchant does not have rights to copy (such as breedable animals that are “no copy” for the seller).
