Topic suggestion: How and who decides what things move to the depot? Do you look at the data and see how people use them? Or is it throwing a dart at a balloon (I know you don't really do this). It seems inconsistent and it seems like some of the most useful items are leaving. I know it seems like we don't need 400 different kinds of rocks or BEAMS! but we do. This is going to be important for us to understand if more things will be leaving.


Please don't change the visit chests yet. I don't have Dandi yet!

A lot of my friends and I have discussed this, but we would love sort of an "outfits tab" for rooms! So you could switch up the style for roleplays, your mood, the occasion ect. Would be awesome!! :heart: :heart: :heart: Could that happen any time soon?

Hi girls and boys. The new Bonus is not so good. The old was always a surprise. And we need more work. I have some Ideas. So your Buddy need help clean his House. That would be funny. Ore searching things. Stars, Hearts, worms what ever. In the stores ore on the street, in Friends Houses. I hope u understand what i mean. More challenges. Would be cool. What do u think about? Thanx for reading.

I have a question for the next broadcast. Is there any chance of showing if we already own an item before buying it, whether it be from the store or auction house? If there was a little box that said "You own ___ of this item" it would help to avoid buying duplicates of something you only need one of.

Remember the 15 the podcast ? You ate on that podcast . Eating is good materiel for a podcast . You should eat on the next episode , episode 15. Jacob also ate some chips on the 16th podcast if I remember correctly. Please put my suggestion under consideration. Thanks <3 :hug:

Also the 15 the podcast was Jess's first podcast you guys were short on microphones back then . It will probably be Amanda's first podcast on 15 .

That would be brilliant - especially for when a new theme comes out and one rushes to store to try to buy as much of it as I can afford.. and lose track of what I have purchased, it would save having to stop, check inventory etc :thumbsup:

May I say something about the chests? I can appreciate what you said about them regarding changing items, however, I feel it would be better to bring back the gift boxes and do away with chests. That way, we won't end up with a pile of either chests or keys that we are unable to use when the theme is changed. It may also (or maybe not) give BVG 2 things to create (box and contents) rather than 3 (chests, keys, contents)

Just a thought, I feel it would be much more advantageous

Thank you :)

I liked it when you did a written summary of the events. I prefer reading than listening.

Could you please provide the transcripts for podcasts. Text transcripts would help people who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as to people who don't understand English. Making Web services accessible for all users is very important and a best practice nowadays. Thank you.

I just got finished listening to the podcast and I have to say, I bet it is hard to try to make all of us Yos happy. So many suggestions and ideas we give you that we want to see...plus so many fixes and projects going on on your end to complete. Listening to you all explain these things made me see there is only so much someone...or people...can do at one time. It seems as if you all have your plate full over there at BVG. I honestly don't see how you do it.

Here is a big hug to you all! :hug:
