    Default users are exploiting glitches to prevent billboards from being used.

    Hello everyone, it has come to my attention that there is a new issue regarding the use of billboards in some worlds.

    As expected, with the community backlash against the use of the royal lock in popular trade worlds, the devs came out with the brilliant idea of the Billboard: a sign that floats next to a player that shows what items they are selling/buying! a perfect way to allow players to trade while preserving the use of the royal lock in other cases. This change was made through a large general consensus of the community as they felt that royal locks were harmful to the game as a whole in trading scenarios.

    And so it came to pass that the owners of some of these popular trade worlds have found a way to exploit around the use of these billboards to prevent their soul function. The exploit consists of filling the world up with signs/dark cave background that way the billboards do not appear whatsoever, meaning their function is completely disabled by force bringing us back to square one before the update.

    The main issue I have with this is that the owners of these worlds are knowingly exploiting this thinking they will not be punished because Ubisoft has not made a statement about it yet, which I (and many others) find is not only very toxic and harmful, but also violates the Growtopian code, to give every player a fair and favorable gaming experience. Having personally spoken to a few of these individuals themselves, they do not care about the community whatsoever, and feel that as long as Ubisoft doesn't flat out say something against the obvious exploit, they will continue to do so until an official statement has been made.

    Once again, this is not targeted to any one individual player/world, but the collective group of worlds that are KNOWINGLY exploiting this bug for their own personal gain to the detriment of the community because they feel they will not be punished for it.

    Anyways, go ahead and leave your opinions down below. Agree? Disagree? I am open to discussion on the matter but as far as I am concerned worlds like these and their owners are simply exploiting unintentional bugs to help themselves and hurt the community.

    I hope Ubisoft takes action against players and worlds like these in the future as they have continued to keep the problems we had with the royal lock for the past year alive despite Ubisoft trying to fix it.

    Punishment are obviously needed to prevent people from doing these sort of things

    Warning affects nothing and no one. A PUNISHMENT affect the person doing it and people doing them now are also the ones who are known to do these sort of things before through similar means . IT'S a exploit nonetheless aswell as harming players in other ways thus punishable without warning

    I agree

    Ubisoft should take in first time royal lock away from those players and in second time, whole world. Then they will learn.

    Ruining game by purpose is serious thing. Now they can't continue this "i don't want spammers in my world and that's why i use rl" bs. Don't know why anyone believed this lie. I knew whole time that it is all about profit, they does not care about spammers, cause they doesn't care about players in their world. They care only about wls. Can't still understand what makes people think that wls are more important than other human beings.

    As I've said before, I woulnd't mind royal lock being taken away or losing it's silence feature. Can't agree with the ban, nuke and world being taken away though.

    Using signs/vends in a world I own → misbehave. That desperately needs punishment indeed.

    I mean, with you being anti-social and all, a ban wouldn't really affect you?

    Are you asking for yourself to be banned? What was the point of even doing it in the first place if you are accepting punishment?

    the buy+ world owners are just so freakin toxic and wants profit,,, so whats new? all players already know that and that even doesnt help profit, no one buy expensive items from vends unless they are very very in need, but when it comes to mass items and seeds the players can wait the whole day because they can wait 2 weeks for project, so why not wait to find a seller in a muted world? mutes doesnt work in buy+ mass items/seeds such as buypurple or buycutaway
    but the owners still think they can profit from it, i really wish those toxic stupid kids gets banned

    You clearly have a tough time understanding sarcasm. Anti-social, that's a new one.

    I mean usually people work hard or get really lucky to get rare worlds, but i dont rly mind that. Just go to another better world to post on a bulletin board if you’re buying or selling the “item/block”, theres usually bulletin boards in some relative world to an item. I don't think this deserves punishment since it’s their world. But i still understand why it’s frustrating for some people
