    Default Never Spam Your Items in Someone Else's World!

    Found a sneaky modus operandi. Sharing it for those who don't know it yet.


    I was selling Red Crystals in the muted world BUYCRYSTAL. A guy (lost his name as I swapped between accounts in an attempt to report him and his world) messaged me that he would like to buy my stuff.

    I was skeptic and wondered why would he want the transaction to occur there when we can just trade in BUYCRYSTAL, but I was curious so I went.

    When I got there, the World Lock was at default and not set to public, then the guy asked me to spam my crystal in his world.

    So I spammed... dirt seeds.

    And lo and behold! The seeds got planted! The guy banned me from his world (JHDDS) as soon as I foiled his trap.


    I wasn't able to explore much of the world, but I thought the scammer concealed a public huge lock somewhere near the white door.

    But I noticed something, quite odd. Upon inspection of the World Lock, there were no borders highlighting it, which would easily signify that another lock was present.

    The World Lock itself was showing that it's not public, yet I was able to plant seeds.

    At this point I'm confused if this guy was hacking/swapping textures, or he really was just exploiting glitches in the system, but that MO was the most bizarre MO I have seen so far in my Growtopian years.



    So yeah, if somebody asks you to come to their world... Don't. I'm pretty sure this is already a golden rule, but it doesn't hurt to remind.

    And don't spam your stuff in other people's worlds!!!

    Gonna bump this thread from time-to-time until I've forgotten this has existed.



    If you have friends in-game, warn them as well. Spread the message if you can.

    Tbh anything that is different sound seem suspicious, and usually going to someone else’s world is a huge red flag for me/a lot of others. Good you didn’t get scammed.
