    To me, most complaints are not objective wrongs by Aimster. Yes, the world containing racial slurs should not have won because it originally violated the Growtopian Code. The miscommunication is a gray area; on one hand, accessibility for a younger player base should be paramount if the event is to be taken seriously, but on the other hand, this is a player-run event, and they should be able to choose where information is made available.

    I have no problem with Aimster judging her own contest. While the premise was meant to be community-based, it cannot be ignored that most people have zero faith in the community’s scruples, and it was apparent why within a few days after the contest was announced. Altering the way the competition was judged was completely justified to avoid some shady dealings.

    That said, having a moderator, who has no incentives to practice favoritism, choose the worlds to host races for her own event, does not seem like a problem. If anything, it seems like a perfectly justifiable decision. These criticisms are personal opinions, as mentioned in the OP, but they are not stringent wrongdoings.

    Just finished transcribing this…deliberating on whether or not to torture myself by adapting it into Growtopia.

    This. This has upset me the most out of everything else, tbh.

    And I would write something up about this matter, but I don't have very much time at hand. Maybe in a few hours...

    Let's be honest. If you're being offered a Mint Julep for helping her make a list (which takes quite some time to be fair), you're not going to walk out of that. EVERYONE would've done that. You just sound annoyed that you weren't in his place. Aimster already said she was going to give away as many as possible to decrease the insane price.

    Second of all, this is not an official Growtopia event. This is a personal giveaway which means it's her rules and her communication.
    Please do support my quest to justice:

    You could give something else other than a julep for that? Instead of giving somebody something that took certain builders weeks to obtain by doing a simple task in a couple of minutes - builders should've been awarded with more

    Not only you seem to attack me personally on that, and when I see so many builders that have struggled to build something original only to see their work devalued by doing something ridiculous in comparison it is silly as pointed in my original post, and lastly:

    this is not an official Growtopia event. This is a personal giveaway which means it's her rules and her communication.
    You can't expect it not to be treated as a semi-official growtopia event, not only developers are intentionally spawning in items for her but her rank also allow her to host those events (which is why I think ubisoft themselves should just do it, to avoid disasters like these) - AND the item is also restricted to this event only. That said, upmost standards are expected, and nearly every single part of the contest failed at that.

    I’m sorry but personally I didn’t like greenhillderby. Yeah it was a visually pleasing world but looks aren’t everything. Half of the time I was confused on where to go and if I made one accidental jump then I got sent up half the course. It just was a sub-par track in my opinion.

    I agree you at this point.By the race of two minutes of pressing buttons & wandering around a world is giving the same prize as the world contest which takes weeks for players to build.Spesifically developers are spawning a whole mess of expensive items.Therefore this poorly organized event is not only ridiculous,it harms economy by giving away 18 Blue Gem Locks worth of Juleps for building contest & 180 Blue Gem Locks worth of Juleps for the "Race".

    this wasnt meant to ‘harm’ the economy, aimster wanted to release enough juleps to drop the price of it. but apparently the economy didnt want that, and now the juleps are nearly the same. the world builders got 2 juleps because their worlds got to the finals. Kyderby isnt actually about world building, its about the race, so giving a julep for the winners is a reasonable prize, the world builders knew they had a chance of not winning, and frankly they should have built the world for the enjoyment and accomplsihment of having people race in their world

    I started to run out of words after seeing the perspective of some casts.

    I agree with this. I built my world not for the juleps, but for the honor of calling it a KYDERBY contest winner. In fact, I even gave away one of my juleps to my close friend because we made a pact years ago. The other is sitting in my world as a “medal” of sorts. People shouldn’t be building this stuff purely for world locks, it’s a pretty low blow imo.

    can we make it so only master sorcerers can votes in the player’s choice?

    that is an actual good suggestion, or at least over a specific amount of posts, say 700+ or something
