Preventing Vending Scam Idea

This isn't really the brightest idea, but what if the item you are buying and the price is bolded in the confirmation window so it makes it easier to see. I'm pretty sure there is some scientific knowledge that can back this up, I'm just too lazy to read.

    And players need to know one thing, wich is reading the stuff that is written above the YES and NO buttons. If players where more carefull, this tread would be considered useless

    I mean, this is a good idea, but it would only save your brain the .5 to 1.5 seconds needed to read the entire sentence. I'm not sure it's worth the time and effort to implement.

    The way it works is that the red catches the eye's attention before reading yes or no. If you know how much it costs, say 500c, and the owner puts 5000c, your eyes will see it first and your brain will stop your hand from clicking.

    That's not really how the process should work anyway.
    The hand should not automatically click pop-ups. The brain should not have to stop the hand from clicking pop-ups. The eyes should read, send the signal to the brain, and the brain tells the hand to proceed clicking.

    This suggestion makes it easier to read. Does it make Qbees WANT to read? Probably not.

    If people don't bother to read it now. Then they aint gonna read it no matter what font or size the words are written in.
    In related news I think there is a fix coming to vends soon that will make these lind of scams harder to do.
