    I don't know man, go talk to the numerous people who played in his giveaways that. Some of my friends participated and were banned after this guy raged. The alledged "hacker"'s reaction was genuine too, real surprise in being accused of one. If he was a hacker, then why wasn't he banned I wonder? I know a lot of people who know of his past sins such as phishing, what's your relation to him? I assure you, there's a lot more behind the "friendly" face of his.

His actions of taking my worldlocks was in Growtopia while my rant was on Instagram, 2 completely different platforms.

    Giving Fury's World Locks to a random person is totally a stupid idea. Doesn't mean that you can scam someone who made fun of you or ruining your reputation. That was really a dumb mistake. Content Creators should represent Growtopia in a positive way, not being hateful to the community, making rants and starting dramas.

    I haven't said anything about his other actions yet. Enough.

    Since my previous thread on this topic was deleted because of obvious censorship, let me put this here.

    For those of you unaware, OldGertie the content creator in question took 40wls from a guy for a pixel art commission, he then blocked the dude on Instagram and refused to give him back his wls/give him his pixel art.

    This is the Instagram post made by the dude who was scammed ^^ (there’s a few more on his page too check his recent posts)

    He claimed to give away his wls “as a lesson” which is completely stupid you can’t just steal something and not return it / give the product you suggested. He literally scammed this dudes 40wls and is trying to play it off like it’s no big deal.

    This guy is seriously unfit to be a member of the community and frankly should be banned for all of the recent atrocities he has committed, I really hope the only reason he hasn’t is that nekorei has been out of the office because this is absurd.

    I dont want to call him out because i only have heard rumours which i dont even know are true or not but he is a genuine nice guy and i came to the chest game a bit after the ‘hacker’ won, but hackers dont always get banned, they can change there names and hide from people or stop hacking. I am friends with him (not hacker) and hes been nice since the time i met him so...

    Wasn't this the guy who asked people to donate so he could get his ldrag? Anyways, was never a fan of him and in my opinion he is quite 'babied' by the Ubisoft team.

    This is why the less known youtubers should be featured as content creators. :/

    Uhm this could have been avoided by returning 40wls, but hey let’s give it away to a “random” person in start. Like he could have prevented ruining his already sketchy rep by returning the wls or completing the service fury paid for, but hey what do I know.

    All personal and irrelevant issues aside, the players who are featured as Growtopia’s top creators have the freedom to utilize the items they receive as a reward for their hard work in any way they would like. At least that’s my understanding. Now, some of the exploitations these creators are doing are not technically against the rules, but that still doesn’t make it right. Realistically, these players (the Growtopia creators) should serve as “role models” for the rest of the community. Unfortunately that isn’t the case, but most of them are nice, genuine players.

    To be honest, I feel as though this would just make the situation worse. If you think about it, the reason most “famous” Growtopians don’t scam is because they don’t want to ruin their reputation. Sure, some players who have experienced such game have fallen from grace in the form of scamming, but it really isn’t too common. So, by adding more unknown players, I believe these exploits will only worsen.
    You can contact me if you have any questions or concerns, whether it be in-game or via forums. I'm commonly occupied with creating worlds and socializing with players!

    They must do an extensive background check first (not just base it on connections and followers) before featuring them as content creator.
    Curious about what happened in the recent Growcon? Watch this!

    As I mentioned in a previous thread, this program is still new and we're still improving this based on community feedback and our observations of the current featured content creators. This is also why the batches only last for 3 months so that we can sort out who stays and who we will remove in the next batch.

    As for the content creator selection, this is just the first, they won't be there forever. For the upcoming batches we will be more choosy and picky in our selections. However, there are no guarantees that we will be able to completely find out their background. We only check their game history and a bit of their social media history then later on evaluate based on their performance at this point.

    Anyway, we're not disregarding the points provided in this thread and in the other threads pertaining to Content Creators and Community Hub esp. if the feedback given will actually help the program. However, I will be closing this thread down as it is become too personal.
