I remember when even 20k was a lot, so I never was able to afford the pink retros!

I remember waiting for the 2009 Halloween things to be released since I love Halloween but the 08's were even too pricey for me at the time lol

My first "BIG" purchase was a 09 Medium Blue Bear for 35k and that was a big deal :haha:

Oh and the time when we could be out in YO and it would show us if someone was in our apt, I would have to go home and see because did not want to be rated down by some mean person :devil: :haha:

I kinda miss the old days but love how the game has evolved and now can make our avi's look more like our personalities :thumbsup:

my 1st big purchase was the green soda pop handheld.. I still own it to this day.

I miss those "innocent" days of the game.


Yep! There are still many of us around.

Lets not forget there was also lot of BS event spamming Way more trolls and racists groups.

On one hand more complaints about items,but thats also in accordance with the fact there are more items (whether they are items I want or not isnt important) So per percentage wise it seems about the same really.

Personally I prefer not having to bandy about with 10 idiots every time I go anywhere. Or having the boards flooded with groups spamming events.

I think I started on fb in July 09. I also played on MySpace and Tagged. I may have started on one of those first. I was logged into MySpace trying to move stuff to Facebook at the moment MySpace poofed. That was a bit surreal - got a 'refresh page' & suddenly the whole thing was no more.

I've played most of the time since, although I took a year off due to an accident around the time BVG was going to take over. I just didn't have the time or inclination to deal with whether or not the game would continue with other rl things going on.

My favorite thing was helping make the huge photo loops and 'whiteboard loop' for leveling up. I figured out if you put a hundred or so bait worms behind the whiteboard, you got max points with very little lag. I was quite into the social aspect of the game at the time, but these days I spend most of my time decorating.

Yep, and random players could easily find their way into people's apartments and rate each other. And then it was taken away because people complained of getting bad ratings. People were rating rooms based on whether they liked the person or not. I wouldn't mind some sort of room ratings coming back, but the way it was set up didn't really work.

yes i remember maybe if they did it so you could see who rated people wouldnt be so quick to vote down if they knew you could see it was them who did it .It was a good idea it encouraged socialising but flawed like you said :heart:

I remember the bulk lots of coin furniture in them and usually the person hosting would not let the auction go over the amount it would cost in store. There was more honest players than dishonest if you looked in the right spots. I also remember the monthly exclusives at least I think it was monthly I know it was long periods before we got a new release. It built up anticipation and everyone was always waiting around excited for it to hit stores. The furniture store was always crowded. I remember when they first made it so we could sit on the furniture chairs and sofas. Everyone was so amazed. :haha: We have come a long way from that. :haha: I miss the free gifts, I miss all the fun events yea we still see some from time to time but nothing like it use to be. I remember when yocash was like 500 coins to 1 or something along those lines. I remember getting sick of seeing all the red velvet items at every auction and sale because it was the it thing for the longest time. :haha:
thats how i saved to buy my first house, buying at actuions, then reselling for just a tiny bit more than i bid.. 15k for the house was a lot at the time.. when I made my 1st million , i thought i was rich... i still love the red velvet stuff. i dont own a single item but those and the mission line are classics.

1st million? I thought I was in high cotton when I made my first 20k. :haha: :haha: So you still love the red velvet huh? :D :angel:

I joined Facebook in June of 2009 & started playing YoVille in August... I've been around since then without taking any 'breaks.' I miss all the fun we had in the 3 maxing groups I was in back then. We had (or attended) maxing parties almost every night & loads of people would show up -- everyone had a blast. I also really miss the free hair that VIP's used to get with each new theme release & the other perks VIP's got back then. This is an old screenshot I saved from long ago... :)

Yes, but there are a lot of good things we didn't have before as well. I love wearing all of the items they allow us!! I also think we have more of a say with this company. The forums are run better. I am very glad the game did not close.
