    Default Is Growstocks considered illegal?

    The site called "Growstocks" which is used to check prices for growtopia items has a system in which if you edit 100 item prices, you will receive a reward of 5wls. This is practically selling a service outside of the game (checking & changing item prices) for growtopia currency which is bannable. Theres no reason that it wouldn't be considered as trading ingame items for anything outside of the game. I myself think that Growstocks is great but I feel that if other people get banned for trading ingame items for something thats outside of the game, then shouldn't Ubisoft also take action against Growstocks for paying people for outside of the game services in world locks?

    Thats just my opinion, if I said something wrong pls correct

    This wouldn't be illegal because they are basically paying you for work. You aren't giving the any REAL/In Game items, so shouldn't be any problems.

    It's not real life money though and if this were illegal, then fan arts for wls should be illegal.

    We're reaching two years old and haven't been shot down yet. The admins and mods know about it so I would assume it's 100% in the rules.

    The owners of the site can just rephrase the wording of it and it could sound like a giveaway type of thing and it should be fine imo

    Or just the guy above said it's an act of appreciation and not a paid service

    I'm pretty sure it falls in the gray area, which means it isn't illegal but support can't help in case of an issue.

    We still stand by our stance that trading in-game items for anything outside of the game and vice versa is discouraged. Therefore, you will not receive any kind of assistance from the Customer Support Team in case any participating account loses items, get compromised, or in any other way get impacted by this kind of transaction. Taking part in this kind of exchange risks both your items' and account's security as we have no way to guarantee a safe environment for this trade.
