Improved Item Exchange with Other Grids

Kitely is a Content-Filtered open grid. Unlike unfiltered open grids, Kitely enables content creators to decide whether the items they create may be taken to other grids, or will be treated as unexportable content. There are two ways that content creators can specify this preference. The first method is used only for items in Kitely Market: such items have an explicit “Export” flag, which determines whether they can be taken out of Kitely. This method hasn’t changed, and will not be discussed in this blog post. For any objects not acquired from Kitely Market, we use the following rule: if the object has Copy + Transfer (CT) permissions then it may be exported out of Kitely. Otherwise, it may not leave Kitely.
