Two new Special Days:

No Player Drop Day
Like the DTF map drops, when a player dies, no items are dropped. Mobs drop DB normally.

Day of Hoarding
Similar to No Player Drop Day, except a player also can not place any items in a bag. During this day in order to remove items from your inventory you either have to store them, sell/trade them, or break them.

Bad day or a good day? :)

Neutral I'd say, has a down side (items stuck in inv) and up side (You don't drop items). Just don't use a gatherer with mobs that drop bones or have ess for bones to gold :P

Yep very good addition to #days, though tbh, good/bad days dont happen often enough, can we not get #day stones as special Invasion drops, or have like a 'Day Stone - creates a random good or bad day on use' - in which a bad day removal stone cant actually be used, a gamble. Or even have an NPC which offers good days for plats...

An early Poll was specifically lowered the chance for special days even after the days were weakened. Partially an over reaction to excessive special days on EL I think.

I like that idea, It's infinitely more interesting than having a set day stone.

Some of the initial polls that you can see the reactionary voting due to some of the crap that was happening in EL should probably be rerun, or involve at least some tweaking to account for the fact that they were overreacted to, but still keep the general spirit and reasoning at heart.

One word comes to mind. Adaptability.

If that comment is directed at mine, since it's a player poll that changed it I do not feel I am permitted to change it. That's why I mention it was a poll that changed it and it would require another poll to either increase it or release it back into my control.

Does anyone feel really strongly about allowing these two special days to go live the next time I'm making a code change update on Main?

FYI, the reason I was asking if anyone was really against it is unless I take extra steps, these two days will try real hard to go live with the next code update of Main. If someone is really against it, then I can work to make sure it doesn't happen and we can extend the discussion.

It's more content, no real downside, why not.

Its bad because you cannot put down items that you want to if bag harvesting.
Its good because people wouldn't be able to bag jump you.

A code update is going in to relax the Trade restrictions when overloaded. Currently you better have a spare or be able to use up enough to lower your emu.
