Oops ... Accidentally sent too much

It seems to be the case that a lot more players then I expected are sending out too much or too little as a tip, maybe this should be a bigger priority? I don't know but I'm hoping stake 2.0 will include this because I feel that it's really essential to have a setting like this where it confirms that you are sending. Who else has experienced tipping too much out to a player?

agree its good to have such setting , not only to double confirm on the tipping amount also on the type of coins you send .

I never experience that but if ever I will that user will send back the excess since most of whom I tip to have good reputation on stake. Although there was a time a user mistipped me and I didn’t know about it until rack pmed me about what happened, so I sent it back after. Lol. 

Always double check everything now before sending :)

with me happened the opposite, friend sent me a value of 100k and actually was to be 10k, as was a known person I asked in particular if he was right, he said he sent it wrong and then I came back the rest to him. Complicated this situation because sometimes people are not reliable, some are honest and we can trust.

 if someone sends me by mistake a good amount, I will double it on dice and send them back lol xD 

I would suggest you to not do that and send the amount back since you have a chance to bust that balance.

I have rarely face a mistipped amount because of typing wrongly so far... for now. This can be rather dangerous indeed if it was sent to a total stranger who does not intend to return it even if it is known a mistake had be made!

I think these types of mistakes can easily happen if you are hosting trivia, and you are sending a lot of people tips at once. In this situation, I think you are likely to make a mistake once in a while, unless you double check before sending.

Ahhh yes, I did this once myself.  I intended to send 75k satosh and accidentally sent 750k satosh! lol

I pm'ed my giftee right away and apologized, asked for the remainder to be sent back. Which he did immediately. 

Sorry to hear that the person you sent to did not ever send back to you - bad form on their part, for certain!

Well when you say trivia it has happened once to me instead of sending 10k I sent 20k once but the person did return it back tho so thats good ;)

I've had this happen to me alot of times but I didn't really lose anything much, they were just small mistakes of tipping 10k sats instead of 1k for btc, and I always try double checking what I am tipping before I confirm it, so something like this doesn't happen to me again in the future :)

haha i did lot of times sis... but to tip in excess is not the worse i did... the worse is to bet a lot of 100k and when you want to reduce, you forget a zero there and you start to bet 750k in automatic...and you know what use to happen hahaha... that is the worse error in amounts i use to do...

I think they could add an option to ask for a "second confirmation" to clarify if you really want to send a tip if the amount exceeds 0.001 or something! :)

I have done this so many times but I am blessed to have honest good friends that have returned it right away or as soon as they notice a large amount they will question it.  The best way to resolve is in pm but sometimes people don't always notice they have a pm.  If all else fails and it doesn't get returned  then at least I've made someone a little happier I guess lol.

No I haven't in the sense that I accidentally sent 10x what I wanted to, as I always double check before clicking the big button. However I've definitely done that while betting, aka betting 10x what I wanted to, which was ironically just shy of my entire balance (it's funny how if it was just a slightly higher number I would've been unable to bet as it'd exceed my bankroll forcing me to check) and of course I lost xd Thankfully I've only done that twice so far... *knock on wood*

However, I HAVE sent tips to the wrong people before, on accident I guess, e.g. those who don't deserve it imo. I usually tip once or twice before basically saying the word never again. Having a mental list of those who deserve tips helps, and having basic judgement means very few people go on that list helps as well.

Yesterday, I was tipped 40k sats by a player and there was a small issue, this player was trying to send it to Darko but sent it to me. I happily got in touch will him saying if he wants his funds back, and I was told that I could keep it because "I'm sure you deserve it" - I always make sure someone is comfortable, but he did say he was most likely going to bust it, so at least I asked. I had no issue in returning it but he told me not to so I understood that.

I think the only time I have ever done that was tipping from my bank to myself but never to another player.  When sending a tip don't rush doing it and double check what you do typos happen very easily to most people all the time, at least for me lol. I would rather second guess myself then make a mistake. I agree a second confirmation above 100k sats would be nice tho.
