So, this time I notice there is no 500 coin item which I can buy lots of in order to fill the boost bar. The cheapest item I found was the beer six pack at 750 coins! :grr :grr :grr :grr :grr :grr You guys BETTER not be using the numbers of items sold on this theme as real and true sales figures! You know full well they (the beer six packs in particular) are artificially inflated! What use do I have for 60plus six packs of beer?! :dizzy: :grr :grr To top it off I spent nearly 100K on my entry, and at most I expect a 4.5 rating WITH FULL BOOST IF LUCK FAVORS ME!!! :grr :grr :grr I did not buy the house though so this is my way of decorating the rooms! Just like last theme. I already got stung by a 50 gem bamboo bath mat which I spent 230 gems to acquire! :dizzy: :sad: The only reason I continue to participate in room challenges is for the sake of the challenge more than anything! (And I get to decorate the theme rooms to see if I want the house or not too. I have gone ahead and bought the house other events. Not last one though.) Item costs are going up, the amount of boost you get has gone down, (especially for yocash items) and I can't help but think you are using these events to show good sales figures to someone! :grr :dizzy: :grr

I agree with this 100%. And while I do hoard food and drink items just for my own use wherever, the prices have drastically increased for those little things. Then add in the yocash... :grr I think the highest score I've ever gotten was a 5.3 on a room (I will have to double check that) and that was with less effort and spending then on the really good ones I've done and just filling the bar with stuff I will use in my non-gem event houses. I can get really creative with the decorating events IF I'm buying things I'll use elsewhere when I tear the room up after the event's over, or if it's something I have an easy time decorating, but half the time I'm just doing the minimum requirement with some little creative bits no one cares about.

And then I spend my gems to open chests and get onesies and rompers and hideous masks. :nerd: But I've stayed strong and haven't purchased any gems in awhile, and haven't purchased anything for the events that I won't otherwise use at some point. I'm also getting better at just living without some of the items, whether I can afford to buy them or not. I just hate the gambling aspect of these and the fact that so much of the good content is in those gem tiers. I'd be more than happy to spend on these things in the store, but I will not spend a cent to gamble on gems. Sadly, it seems to be falling on deaf ears at BVG. I think they are mostly catering to the gambling crowd now. :sad:

So, has anyone mentioned that the icon should go away once you click on it, even if a person doesnt want to do the daily task? I doubt any one has, but I thought I would mention it. :D

We only have to do the visiting thing to get rid of it for good for the day. I just do that now and then I don't have to look at it anymore.

:rose: That still counts as gem event participation though! (And the lag is a torment at the event locations too!) :dizzy: :sad:

Exactly. I refuse to be a part of it at all. I will save money for another month I guess!

I didn't mind the gem events at first. If they were only once every few months it would make them more special. I don't necessarily mind new items being in the gem event. I do resent only the best quality themes that we've been begging for going into the gambling events when regular store themes suffer greatly in quality.

I'm tired of them now.

Hi. I am wondering why we have been given an outfit contest in the gem challenge, when we have only been given one outfit and one hair. You want us to mix modern and classic Aussie fashion with one very casual outfit? Please release some more options for us. :) tyvm

I was almost finished creating an outfit, just wanted to add a yober or something and my screen suddenly went white. I waited a bit but it still stayed white, so I finally had to refresh. I had gone back and forth checking what I needed to add and what I had for a boost so normally what I had already put on stays put, but when I came back everything was gone and I was back to square one.

I haven't been doing many of these challenges; mainly just the dress up ones because I enjoy them (which I notice have been reduced and the decorating ones are increasing). I only do the decor ones if I want the room. I spend the minimum amt for decor and for outfits and just dress or deco how I want for the events with my existing items. I never buy any extra gems and haven't even bought the ones for 1 YC for a long time.

There are far too many glitches that have gone unaddressed and voting is still completely biased in every way imaginable for me to spend money or put any time and effort into these challenges. I only do them when I feel like it and for free stuff, now.

Welcome to the forum, Mickie. How is the event not working for you? Do you not have the gem icon at all or is the dress up part not saving or what? I was able to do the challenge although I did get a white screen, had to refresh and start over.

Wow 230 gems for a pair of ugly slippers that don't even fit the feet properly. Thank goodness i am not spending money on this event, what a horrible prize, you guys really aren't even trying. I have stopped buying yc and am only living with what i get from my vip subscription and tbh i am even thinking of dumping that if things dont improve.
