Hey,
How come the treasury I just got is only good for two day where other treasuries are good for 3 days? Makes no sense to me!

I'm officially asking the admin why this happens. This isn't the first time.

It's randomly assigned... I think the idea is that all the treasuries won't expire at once. :)

The treasury time limit is random, so that they expire at different times. It is just the way it is and has been for a while now. Not too big a deal, really.

I get 2 days and 3 days. It's random.

Admin has answered this before: random timing ensures that a billions lists don't all expire at the same time.

The problem with the "random" concept is that we all work hard to put together our treasuries and when they end up smack dab in the middle of already existing listings they get lost in the mix and do not get viewed as much as the ones at the beginning.

I see no reason why they shouldn't be listed in the order that the titles are created. Just my opinion.

because then they would expire at the same time.
