Please answer the threads about Gem Event code?

It required DD2019 code...

Is that right, or is it mistake?

TIA! :heart:

Hey Everyone,

As I'm sure most of you noticed, there was an error in the theme requirement code last night. Rather than requiring, YI2019 items, it was asking for DD2019. This was fixed after an hour or so.

As an apology for our error, we will be granting everybody a 50 gem reward.

We're sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused, and thank you for your understanding.

Thanks for the gesture, but it doesn't really help those of us who submitted a room that is now not really in keeping with the theme, as voters will find it strange to see DD2019 items in rooms. We will probably lose votes over it. Also what about filling the bonus bar as I did, but unfortunately that may not count now so may lose the extra points which could in turn have cost us the 25 YoCash reward ...... or will the bonus still show as if we'd filled the bar with the correct coded items ? Sorry to sound so negative but it's so disappointing to follow your guidelines, only for you to move the goalposts (so to speak) after we've submitted.

The bonus that you earned will not be changed at all. If you had a .8 bonus with the DD2019 items, you will still have that .8 bonus.

The gem reward we are giving out is because there will inevitably be people that don't have their room voted for because it doesn't match the theme. The 50 gems is compensation for those people (even though it will be issued to everyone).

I'm hoping people will be aware of this dilemma & will be more lenient with voting. I sure will :hug: (hug is for Aimee Lou)

I don't know how everyone else fared, but this month's event SUCKED as far as "prizes" go. Hats and more hats, a few pairs of shoes and a bunch of junk. And then to top it off, a the end of the month, instead of getting a cool pet (as you've done in the past months), we get a MASK????? Where the heck were all the "legendary" prizes? I sure didn't get any. I hung in till the bitter end thinking that we'd at least get a new pet. C'mon, BVG, you can do MUCH better than this!! Grrrr!

That was a whole lot of work for the final prize at the end to just be a piece of wall art. You guys couldn't put any effort into a final prize that people put effort in many challenges to get to? Please make it proportional to the effort people put in in future ones. There are quite a few of us who put a lot of effort into those challenges to work towards the final prize so to get just a picture was disappointing. I'm also curious about calling it sweater weather which suggests nice cozy fall items. I hope maybe there is a theme next month that fits what that title suggested. Actual sweater weather items would have been very nice.

What I would like to know is what "chest" can we purchase to ensure we get say the ese2019 items vs. old out of store blah items. Are they just random? Where did the "pop" hairs come from, and the "deco" hairs. The best I got was a whole outfit. I too think that judging needs to be rated differently maybe extended. Maybe we could vote on 1-5 because some of them you can see are just for the gems, and others deserve a higher rating. I personally really try to stick to theme and event. I hate to see alll of these "complaints". I like that the gem reminder is there! I enjoy doing the gem events, and the "prizes", although some are greater than others. I'm glad I didn't miss much not scoring high! lol This is a nifty thing to do, and has kept me logging in daily all month. If we have nothing nice to say, maybe we should say nothing, before we ruin it for others that enjoy the event, although not perfect. Thanks! (I probably wasted 60 yc opening boxes, and I was disappointed, but can't always get what we want. If anyone could answer my questions that would be mega helpful for the next event!

I got Pip the pet snake, and Twig the chameleon? I was hoping for the hairs! :D

Hi Shelley. The 230 gem chest gives ONLY the current GE theme items, but they could either be from the 50 gem chest or the 150 gem chest. The Hair packs are always in the 150 gem chests, but if you open those, you risk the chance of getting other "filler" in-store items. There is a thread here (current one is ESE2019 Tiers) that Lyndy Plush posts. She shows all the items that are available when each Tier is opened. That's helpful to know what prizes are where.
