    Exclamation The Royal Lock is a Problem

    Recently I've been seeing a ton of "quitting giveaways" or "giveaways" that go along the lines of "biggest donator gets to win the grand prize" and these scams are just heightened by the royal locks effects. The royal lock completely prevents players from warning other players about a scam and in my opinion, violates the Growtopia rule of "fair play".

    Just today I saw this scam happening with a royal lock. The sad thing is that these scams are a dime a dozen.

    The royal lock needs to be redesigned. It is completely unfair to restrict all players' speech within a world. Royal locks block trade, create scams, and make Growtopia less of a fun place.

    Could you guys upload any other grievances you have with the royal lock and your overall opinions on it? Hopefully we can get Ubidev's attention because I really hope this issue can be solved.

    get used to it because almost everyone (the rl owners, aka soulless 9 year old money thirsty scammers) here will disagree with your statement

    We are aware of the problems the Royal Lock is causing and we are looking into solutions regarding it. I cannot say what those may be, or when any changes will be released, but we do have something planned.

    Maybe you can remove silenting peasents option without adding something similiar to it and instead give rl owners benefits like new options on ban time other than normal 1 hour ban, making text bubble of owners and admins bigger than normal players and maybe you can add a similiar report function which sends a notification to admins and owners whenever you report a player in the world. So that way those trade world owners wouldnt have much excuse about em using rl to avoid spammers.

    Actually, these scams wouldn't really exist if they just removed the more harmful than beneficial message that pops up when somebody donates. But I agree, the silencing effect of the Royal Lock really takes away from the game's purpose and main aspect of socializing.

    Might as well sell my RL and buy another one at a later date once they drop.

    I feel like people should already know the dangers of scamming and scams like this. Maybe Ubisoft can create a test that we have to pass for us to actually be able to play Growtopia?

    How does one fix a scam? Scams aren't glitches that just need code edited.

    I agree that these scams are a pretty big problem in GT, but it's not the royal lock's fault. I use mine for giveaways and such (when spammers always come and scream CASINO IN -------) and when I buy things to prevent trade stealing. The main problem are the players who fall for this scam (it's literally common sense and the game warns you about this stuff) and the people hosting this. It's similar to how a knife is a tool, but also a weapon in the wrong hands.. get what I'm saying?

    I also just read complete's suggestion.. I would actually really enjoy that longer bantime, notify owner upon report, as well as a larger chat bubble... Those would be pretty darn useful
