    Default Growtopian life... life ain't fair, but may it be possible?

    I have made this thread to talk about things that are annoying me and if you can, provide the reason why people do this and if it is a scam, fall for it! THX!

    1- "trade"
    Everyone knows what I'm talking about! Random- usually newbie- person enters you world, says "trade" until you either ban them or you trade with them.

    Now it splits into 5 branches:

    A: You ban the person and he spams you with "N00B!! U SUCH A !@$#ING N0000B!!! MY DAD= @SETH!! HE WILL BAN YOU OR CHANGE UR NAME TO BULL@#$%!!!!" or anything else that is hurtful until you /ignore them.

    B: You ban the person, he leaves you alone (probably never gonna happen)

    C: You trade with him, he doesn't know how the stock market works and offers 100 dirt seeds for your crystal seed #derp

    D: You trade with him, he leaves his slots blank, you ask him what he/she is selling, person says "offer" without showing you what he is selling, if you ban him, refer to A, if he eventually does show you, he either makes a fair trade or you can refer to E.
    Or..

    E: Give you an offer you do not want, and when you eventually see a good offer. But, if you cannot afford, refer to step A but put the banning part last.

    2- Sb spams

    Although this is something that normally happens, it still annoys the heck out of me. I don't need an explanation for this because I already know why people do this. I call sb spamming "Semi-scamming"

    Semi-scamming- verb

    The act of scamming(tricking) in a non-illegal way. Basically, you're doing something illegal without breaking the law.
    Gt example: Sb spamming, griefing
    IRL example: Finding a loop-hole to escape a law-suit.

    3-Donation scams

    "Best donator wins ice dragon!!" That isn't even donating any more... it's called buying at a reduced price with a 99.99(infinite 9)% chance you'll get scammed. Why not just buy it from someone?

    4-"Pay"

    No, not for a pair of rippers, not to enter a casino but to do the most ridiculous things ever. Like, if you have a small locked world you only use to clear land for rock and lava seeds, why should you pay a wl to get it back? take your small lock and LEAVE!! Go to another world with a similar name! Instead of ROCKYJROCKY, change it to ROCKYJROCK and start over!
    I understand that people do this to make profits but why would you pay!? someone says "Ban me." Scammer_123 says "Pay"
    DA Frequently Asked Questions?

    Okay, moving on...
    5-"Breaking piñatas"

    Why do you even go there? All you're doing is feeding the flame of the burning fire that is greed! They aren't going to give you the fiesta hats or the hibiscus hair anyway!! They probably won't even remember how many people were there! What is the point of showing up? I'm not being greedy myself. I am asking why do people go if they know they aren't going to get anything? Heck, I've seen owners BAN people and remove all their admins after piñata parties!



    I hope you can help me answer some of these confusing things!! Thx!

    I only have to disagree with one of your statement. Breaking Piñatas is what some players are willing to do. If you wear the Lucky Piñata hat at least the great Burrito will award you something. In any case players most likely will go to a piñata party for enjoyment.

    Exactly what I was about to say. All you have to do to get FREE ITEMS are:
    1) Wear lucky hat
    2) Find a world that are blowing whistles
    3) Get free items
    4) Sell your items that you got for free for WLS
    5) Profit

    I've gained 250 WLS from this. Took me 2 days. .-.

    I think this is kinda like, "Look on the good side, my friend, because it'll be better if you do!" Like the concept, haven't seen it in a while (or have I?).

    The only thing I wanna talk about is the piñata party's,Let's see...there's rarely people who will give the people items (like me)and I give it to all of them,this is kinda a bump XD.You can trust me with my whistles(when it's back I don't wanna waste my whistles yet)And those owners are kinda greedy,I'd say they're meanbags!

    Like my post, want to give me a kudos, or just do something for the fun of it?

    I understand the piñata concept but what about "trade" and "pay"? I know it's just a game and it just works like this but WHY does it work like that?

    Ok here goes.

    SB spams. People that are either famous or want to be famous and spend their parents money on gems sb spam. Face it, half of the sb spammers NEVER farm. They just buy tons of gems.

    SB blocks on purpose.

    THE MOST ANNOYING THING IN THE WORLD! Some kid thinks it's funny to simply spam #sbblock after someone broadcasting something so half of the /gos go to the sb spammer. Why sb block people who earned their gems fair and square. Oh it's ok for you mr spammy. You have enough gems to sb the entire bloody bible for crying out loud, one word per sb!

    Sure. I don't mind if I'm unfortunate enough to sb right before someone else. But if someone is sb spamming and I get sb blocked by them expect a rage and a half. I rarely sb for that reason. And the fact that I'm nervous about super broadcasting. For my own reasons of course...

    Fake mod broadcasts/messages.
    It's became more common recently. People attempt to broadcast something short then do a 'fake broadcast' making it look like a mod/dev broadcasted there. The worst part? It looks real if done right, until you read what's above or by the side of the sb. *[Super broadcast from Sbspammer in (SPAM) ** lol [Super broadcast] from @Seth in (SPAM) Best world ever lol I'm Seth.

    and that's something that really grinds my gears... People should be punished for purposely sb blocking.

    You can actually get punished for faking a mod broadcast or pretending that a mod is in your world.

    The thing that grinds my gears is that they just say "@Seth" so technically they didn't lie about anything. They just said a name.

    Some fake a broadcast from him. Others bypass the rule by just saying the name Seth. It somehow drives people into their world...
