    Default New Event Idea!

    Hi,
    First of all, this is an idea so please don’t bash me if you don’t want it. Read till the end before replying to this thread.

    Basically, during this 1-week “event”, your own location and the locations of your friends will be public.

    Why? Growtopia interactivity and socialisation is fading away...

    Let me ask you, how many of your friends have their location set on public?... and how many have it set on private? Exactly. In my case, I can assuredly say that 90% of my friends have their location on private and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    Furthermore, when was the last time you properly had a good time with Growtopia friends? And no, I am not talking about 5-minute discussions about farmables, profit, and world locks.

    I know this isn’t a BIG and PROFITABLE event, which is what most growtopians would have wanted. But for the good of the community, make this a thing... or make something similar to this. It’s so simple.

    This event will most probably make some players keep their locations on public even after the event; and start enjoying the game again with friends instead of worrying about world locks all the time.

    What do you think? ;]

    Why would you need privacy in this game?
    Playing casino and betting?
    Scamming?

    fArMiNg? That’s the whole point of my suggestion. Stop worrying about world locks and if your friends warp to you when you’re “busy”... wait no why would you be busy? Exactly, “busy” in Growtopia means earning world locks in some way or another. The whole idea of my suggestion is to chillax about profiting, and actually start playing the game with friends again.

    I don’t wanna trigger people or anything, or be that type of closed-minded person, but if you bring “ I don’t want friends warping to me when I’m busy or doing something ‘important’ ” as an argument, you prioritize world locks and virtual items over actually playing the game. And personally I don’t think that’s what the original developers wanted Growtopia to be.

    I myself do not see any down sides to this idea. If you do, please leave a reply.

    there are some ppl who dont want to be visited for idk what reason lmao, and also its not a big issue tbh. what if there's something you want to do, for example a prank or a surprise? a secret world that you don't want to reveal? or maybe you just don't want to be disturbed even in the smallest ways (visiting)? world locks isnt the reason, sometimes you just gotta be lonely

    At first I thought you meant the actual location of the player, but then I realized you were talking about the world they're in lol. I personally don't understand what this will do, as you can always message your friend and ask where they are to hang out. Some people might just be playing for the fun of it, and some are for socializing. We all have our needs, and I feel that making people do something for a week to get a result that YOU think we need for our community, is a bit much.

    There are some very young kids who play this game that don't understand the whole community bonding type of thing, and they play because you know, it's "a game." And I completely understand what you're trying to say. We all want to make Growtopia a healthier space without the constant thought of wanting to be rich, and working together to remove that gap between the poor and the people who are able to afford anything they want. Since this is my opinion, you can take whatever you want from it and I don't mean to bash you! I just think this wouldn't do much, considering how much people there are... there should be something else that could connect us together.

    Hello There



    I also think it would be fun to hang out and warp my friends 24/7, but sometimes you need some privacy. Also if you are a YouTuber it can be frustrating when your friends wrap to you, while you are recording something If you ever need a friend with online warp status a lot you can add me

    Bad idea. If they really want to talk to you, they'll message you where they are. Sometimes people are in a private conversation with each other.

    I would rather there be a constant freedom of privacy, not saying that socializing is bad (I've never in my 5+ years of playing turned off my location), but for the people who value privacy this would not be helpful.
    this is my signature
    i can choose whatever i want to do here
    and you cant stop me

    i choose to do nothing

    Idk, working on a secret project, a big giveaway or something? I wouldn't want people finding me if I was making something big to be revealed later... But maybe that's just me.
    Also solving multi-world puzzles, you don't want your friend to just warp to you to the final world and effectively skipping the whole puzzle, possibly resulting in them taking the prize from people who actually deserve it. Or maybe you want your friends to spoil multi-world giveaways, who knows...
