If you don't own a shop this post is not for you. :)

Many of you entrepreneurs out there have had some problems with stocking your shops using your usual methods. As of right now, things should be back to normal (or will be after the MUD reboots, or your shop reloads).

What's been happening is that items approved by automatic approval expressions are now, in fact, approved immediately. But! owners and helpers were not subject to approval expressions, so this led to a side effect where you couldn't put stock in your waiting list, because everything you sold was automatically approved; so now owners and helpers ARE subject to approval expressions. This can be toggled with the "expressions toggle exemptions" command.

A second side effect of all this is that nothing would ever go into the 'waiting' list anymore -- everything would go into the 'waiting unapproved' list. After talking with a few shop owners, the general consensus seems to be people like to use the 'waiting' list for items sold by the owners/helpers themselves and the 'waiting unapproved' list for items sold by customers. So this is now what happens.

tl;dr Shops should work how they used to, except that auto approval expressions should now work too
