Or if they charge more they come up with a new excuse why it's that high as with the latest yober pack.

lol I seen her explanation. :dizzy:


You should check the official thread again. It seems we're wearing them down and they may reconsider for future...

Can you point me in the right direction lol I read it, but im not sure what part you're referring too

Exactly. It is a common, new item.

Paranoid much? :haha: :haha:


Just screams excuse to me...



I don't really care if it is an excuse, I like the idea that those that bought ten thousand of them thinking they were in scalping paradise are now stuck with them all and those that bought them only to decorate don't have to worry about having them taken from them.

I didn't even notice the price glitch when I seen them this morning lol but after seeing there was a glitch on here, I still didn't buy any. That's a NO NO, and it breaks the economy, Theresa!! :haha:

I literally do not see why they couldn't of been left in there for 8 coins. Even 8,000 Coins.

We haven't had a coin seating option for years, would it really be so bad to have one (1) coin option?

I mean, they still got quite a good deal in the end – for just 8 coins each you can get 1600 points while leveling up a room, since they did change the price from 8 coins to 8 YoCash even on those that they made non tradable.

That is surely well worth to them even if in the end they can not sell them to others...



And on the record I do not think it is fair accusing those players who bought any amount of them of taking advantage of an exploit and breaking YoWorld's Terms of Service when in past there have been both items priced very low (like Theresa mentioned), or items where different variants (colors) of items costed different amounts of YoCash AND YoCoins – a variant (or two) were coins and the last one was YoCash or other way around. How could anybody know this is not what they intended to charge this time?

Someone sent me a gift this morning that turned out to be one of the coin seats. After hearing they were not tradeable I deleted it because I don’t want a problem down the road with it. I guess I just lost 8 coins.

Someone who bought just a few I can see being a legit buyer... but if you bought hundreds or more then you probably had a clue something was wrong. If they really thought it was what was intended there's no reason to buy that many at once unless they're planning to build a fairy stadium.

I remember back in old Zynga days this would happen all the time then players would run to forums and gloat of how they got 100's of a item that is priced differently within an hour and how they are going to price jack it. That is a prime example for price jacking, and which does screw the economy

I agree too. If a player who bought a item priced at a price that they could take advantage of players in the long run and karma comes in and changes that's on them who bought 1000's of the items. Maybe they will think how to play nice and not think how to take care advantage of the little guys. It's funny to think about it now. That some players took it soooooooo seriously to get rich in this game, like it's part of eating or bathing or showering.

Once again, some players get to profit from a glitch. I was here first thing yesterday morning and saw this thread and did not run and buy the items because they were clearly priced wrong. Even if the people who took advantage of the glitch, clearly against the TOS, cannot sell these items now they still get to keep them, which is completely unfair to those of us who do not get any. I would love a bunch of them to decorate with and cannot afford an 8 YC price tag.

Back when one of the designer's hairs were coming out of the boxes as all rares it was reported, here. Some people were buying loads and selling them for 2 million a piece. One person posted they bought 100. I had 1000 YC at the time and could have easily bought 100 to sell, too, but didn't even buy one as it is against the TOS to profit from a glitch. But nothing happened to those people who did.

And again, like those cash deals that were clearly wrong a couple of months back. People knew they were priced wrong but were buying them to try and get 1000 YC for $30 and complaining they should get that. They ended up not getting that amt of YC but got to keep the items that came with the deals that were netting them 3 million coins or more. No one ever gets items in $30 deals to sell for that much.

It seems every time there is a glitch, some people get to profit and others lose out. As one who is always on the losing end, it makes me wonder if I am playing wrong by always following the rules. It certainly has not got me rich in this game, even after spending thousands of dollars of my own money, while others don't spend a dime and profit from glitches; stealing others' items to sell; selling coins for real money; playing on and profiting from multiple accts and nothing happens to them
