Although maybe it doesn't count as BVG selling the items, and so players/fans having items, and even selling amongst ourselves, are kinda like souvenirs (it does help promote the movie in a way). Like if they pulled the movie so it couldn't be shown in theaters or online, they wouldn't take people's DVDs/blurays of the movie.

This is a fun wrestling match. :love:

We don't know how the license to sell the items was structured. Most of them are structured to provide the creator an up front fee to use the material and a royalty for everything sold. So the DD people got paid.

Now what gets fun is not just for DD, but for every item in Yo. We don't own anything per the terms of service. We own a "lease" to use the pixels as we choose. BVG can cancel the lease at any time at their sole discretion. It is what cuts the legs out from anyone trying to sue them if they get their account banned..........or BVG just decides something needs to come out of the game for ANY reason. Obviously BVG wouldn't want to upset us, but they reserve the right to empty our accounts if they choose.

My money is on the players getting to keep what they leased. The nuclear damage it would cause to customer good faith would be devastating for BVG.

yep makes sense what you and Serenity said :thumbsup:

Absolutely. I’m hoping they made enough money to make it worthwhile to do again. I’m worried, though, because other than NPCs, I doubt people bought or stockpiled more than usual...? A pink chair is a pink chair, ya know? It won’t be perceived as worth the effort if they make the same amount (or only a little less) on normal themes without the added work and expense. They may have even netted a lot less than a regular theme... again, because we hoard everything. Who knows.

Of course I understand if you don’t want to answer, but since you’ve been playing so long, I’m curious why you aren’t selling and rolling in coins like everyone else who’s been around for years. The YC rate has been so low, it would have been a great theme to buy YC for.

Gotcha. I would have been happy to sell it to you. Offer stands from now on, anyway. :)

If I was you I wouldn't buy specially those Yc dealers, I've seen people saying they got a ban after they bought yc from a yc dealer, Idk if that is true but I always err on the side of caution :bye:

Sami, I think you missed Chris' offer to sell you yc in the future. She wasn't suggesting you just buy from any yahoo.

:thumbsup: ... sami you can't get banned for swapping cash for coins or vice versa. say you needed 200yc... for example, we could trade and you give me 10m and i give you 200yc... assuming 50:1 is the going rate still

Going on about? For chatting like everyone does all day every day? We exchanged a total of four sentences. Julie's correct. I was offering to sell you some of mine because I felt bad that you missed things you wanted.

Is this misread everything Chris posts day or something? Why is someone jumping on me every time I try to do something nice today?
