Decorating-Designing Challenge Suggestions

Postby Dex Dexter (131354847) » Sat Dec 01, 2018 12:28 am

Most of us know there is a distinct problem with the Decorating challenges - the severe lack of people voting on actual rooms and not just rooms crammed with JUNK just to get the gems!

* What if, instead of the added items being static (and non-removable!!), we got one VERY good YC item with one of the rooms, which we got to keep - IF - our rooms placed at 5.0 or higher? It would serve as an incentive to put some thought into the room's design and not just toss in a lot of crap! It would also be an added incentive to those of us who already do our best. (After all, we get to keep the hair and extra items from the costumes!)

* Put a filter on the contest that restricts the Free Trunks and other flotsam people toss into the rooms just to up their score. If you can filter items in the Auction House and these Events are going to be a regular staple, it should not be that hard, right?

* Have the voters put in a little extra effort by checking off criteria boxes for each entry. For instance, if the room needs 1) Trees 2) Bushes 3) Teddy Bears - then the voter should have to check off these boxes before they can submit their vote. Yes, this is a little extra effort but for those serious about this event, this little extra effort shouldn't be that rough, right?

These are just a few ideas. I'm sure people have others! Oh, and let me stress again - PLEASE "release" the furniture items from the previous Design rooms! You can mark them as "restricted" to keep them from being resold (like the eyes, hair, and other things in the clothing challenges) but we should be able to use them in other places.

Thanks for listening!! :bye:

I don't understand why you want voters to check off items as those items are required for entry

Hey Dex. FYI, there's a thread going viral now that is right on your point.

Jess has weighed in a couple times there, so have a look...

To make sure they've at least looked at the room instead of just voted for the first room that comes up, the way some people have said they do.

Hey, that won't work. they will just tick without looking if they really didn't want to look.

I read the thread. The reason I posted this one was because I offered suggestions to fix the issue. Thank you, though, for drawing my attention to it. :thumbsup:
