    Default Growtopia and profiting off little kids [$$$$]

    Let's state the facts, this game is made for kids. Plain and simple. I would say a vast majority of Growtopians fall between 7-15 years old. This is realistically great for older players lets say 17+ who have mentally matured and are more knowledgeable when it comes to certain concepts than these little kids who dont have enough common sense to prevent being taken advantage of

    I for one, see how easy it is to convince little kids who have no idea about the economy of growtopia whatsoever to undersell items, overpay, etc and I use that to my advantage, that's nothing except business. The fact that these kids are kids, is what makes it so easy. It's not the same trying to rip off a 20 year old growtopian player who is intellectually more advanced than lets say an 8 year old who sees an item and says *oooh shiny*

    Let's be honest, they are very malleable and we older players take advantage of that. I'm not saying it's wrong or right, just bringing up the obvious truth.

    Any thoughts on this?

    I don't disagree, what I'm saying that this is obvious and a thread is unnecessary.

    You could look at it in that way, but shouldn't older, more experienced players, be able to take the responsibility to not do such things?
    I myself am 15 years of age (idk why you call 15 a kid, in my opinion you should be able to think clearly at the age of 11 already) and if I would do something like that, I'd feel extremely bad.
    If you just let those people enjoy the game it's all good. I would like to compare things to real life sometimes, a 20 year old man wouldn't betray an 8 year old boy in real life too if he's caring of some sort.

    This wasn't a message to the OP btw, just formal.

    You're right on this. A lot of young players fall victim to scam/ price manipulation easily, as they are influenced by the older players of growtopia. Plus i heard, there's no price world around anymore.

    That's why I've always wished for a centralised exchange system, which brings the whole market together for the growtopia economy. This means that the price of an item is not defined by 1 or 2 person managing the price world, but rather the price people are willing to pay for the item.

    Cool, I guess.

    Yeah, they can be easily manipulated. However, doesn't that technically count as "lying"?

    depends on how you manipulate.


    For example, If i see a person saying


    "buuy 200 pltferms fhor 2 wls"

    as opposed to

    "purchasing 200 platforms for 2 world locks"

    i'll know who is more likely to get taken advantage of


    but no thats not lying unless you mislead them purposely

    Um, what about No, due to the fact that YOU, even before you start the forums are about to mini-mod. And no, that's the bad type of Mini-mods.

    Oh, you edited it off.

    Uh... I think a more clear word to phrase that is "taking advantage of".

    Anyway, mini-mod is acting like a mod despite being one, that's what most people call them.

    1- you intelligent, genus, can run your brain, ugly
    2- what your database and are you using it well ?
    This important something, i was making my database for 1-3 months
    After that i used. It and BUMPED my wls from 50-150 wls
    Into 8 dls in 1 week ( just dont ask how because it was very complex )

    3- if you founded a golden idea , you will use it perfect use or just throw it away ?

    4- most important something is : who you can trust and how to be anti-scam

    Some learn, some don't.
    But it is entirely useless to stereotype the kids.
    Process of learning, boi.
    Edit: It's pretty obvious. This thread is pretty much useless but enh, quality entertainment.
