    Default Selling GrowIDs Should NOT Be Illegal

    There is no reason for selling them to be illegal. It's just the name, not the account. You can't even sell names anymore thanks to people that use it to scam. So why punish everyone else?
    GrowID: Noceda
    World: NOCEDA


    Yes, I changed my name.

    It goes down like this.

    Guy 1 wants to buy Guy 2's ID.

    Guy 2 gets a midman

    Guy 3 (ze midman) gets birth certs and the payment from Guy 2 and Guy 1 then changes his name.

    Guy 2 changes his name to Guy 1's name

    Guy 3 gives the payment to Guy 1 and boom finished.

    NOW HIT THAT TH11 IN WAR or your getting the boot astig.

    Selling Growid or changing your Growid is not illegal, But buying and selling accounts are.

    if the name was changed by a mod, that accounts name is still counted as the first name in growtopia's database

    (sorry if that's confusing)

    I suggest a way for that to make the Grow ID trades safer. It should be somewhere in suggestion box

    Behind the scenes possible scenarios:

    Scenario 1:
    Guy 1 asks his friends, or gets alts to scam the name and he gets dls back from the midman, this way he technically bought the name for half price.

    Scenario 2:
    Guy 2 asks his friends, or gets alts to scam back his own name, this way he will get half the dls and keep his name.

    Scenario 3:
    Guy 3 (yes, the midman) asks his friends, or gets alts to scam the name, then he gets a name for free and splits dls between the buyer and seller so he keeps his "trusted" status.

    This is why buying names is so difficult. All 3 parties can decide to scam the name and no one would know anything since there is no proof and then they will put the blame on some random "hacker" that just happened to know when the name was being changed so he can steal it.

    I would personally advise to never ever buy a grow ID from someone. Just create you own name and make it your identity, never change it and stick to it as your identity that represents you and you only.
    Only trust people with what you're willing to lose.

    Stay safe, don't get scammed, and have a good day!
