Stop blaming people. Some people like myself are sick of this event and the payout one gets for all the time and effort and coins/cash spent on decorating or costuming. The voting process sucks. The chests and gem rewards largely suck. If I feel inspired for costumes I will dress up but am not going to spend more than I would otherwise if not the contest. Rooms--meh. I will keep using my now default symbol of gem>>>poop>bull in the center and meet the requirement as cheaply as possible: not for the gems BUT ONLY if I want the room for free.

Stop blaming the game players. If you want to blame someone FFS then blame BVG for making this event largely intolerable but locking in a few interesting new theme only in chests and then encouraging players to spend lots of YC to gamble on getting them.

None are taking from you except BVG. Design how you wish and let others do the same (at this intolerable point).

I'm not sure which of us you mean, but I disagree with someone purposely voting for the WORST entries. That DOES take away from me unless I just give up and do a crappy entry, too. I guess that's now what everyone should do???

Sorry, not quite awake and missed that half of it. I can see your point on that specifically. Nonetheless, I understand the sentiment of sabotage. Unless BVG wants to seriously listen to the criticism of the gem events and change things accordingly, I do understand (the sentiment of sabotage)--although yeah reading that half of it I missed, i can see it is detrimental to you and others who still take this event to heart and want the votes. Apologies. The rest of what I said stands though, maybe not to you in the case now but I have seen complaints from others on how many rooms now are half-assed when people go to vote.

Thanks & no problem. I don't have an issue with people voting all left or all right side, but seeking out the worst seems backwards to me. I'm pretty disgruntled with this current Gem event & the prizes, but I do wish everyone who still tries to get a good score, the best of luck. There's enough issues with the current voting system (I don't think it's fair in the least), and voting for the worst is equal to downvoting the best IMO. It doesn't seem how much we have complained about the voting glitches (missing avis / ginormous avis, items missing or mislayered in rooms, etc), those players are neither compensated nor are the glitches fixed. Then the bonus meter price has risen, and that's a whole new basket of unfairness.

Indeed.

(I am "Stargate" fan and it has recently been in syndication on Comcast stations so been rewatching :) If you have been a watcher then you know Teal'c and his "Indeed." So just using that a lot now and his voice in my head, love his voice. lol)

So sorry. That onesie is hideous! Btw, the new Tier 2 50 gem item is a ROLL OF SOD. So you have that to look forward to! ;)

Leeum, each Coin item is worth 0.01 of boost no matter the price, so you are better off buying just a lot of items that cost 500 YoCoins and hiding them somewhere. It is even much more cost effective than buying YoCash items. :thumbsup:

You're not alone with this, many of us are also doing this because we are tired of these events styled as they are. At first it was fun, all we asked was to be allowed to attach the rooms to our homes so they could be visited and seen by our friends. Instead of that we got saddled with a cash grab (as if we dont spend enough) and each time they roll it out the cost required is more blatant. No more using mixed theme items to get a unique and worthy room, just buy the stuff and you get a boost or else you wont win at all. now they eveb have theme items a part of the requirements. Some of us are angry and tired of being ignored. I spent more money before they started tying my hands!

Really didn't like decorating today's challenge room. Those rooms with the fences placed... Covered them with grass but lost interest when I realized I can't put just any item over them... Blank rooms should be completely empty... :(

Something that should come to your notice: NO ONE has started a "show off your room" topic for challenge 3! :dizzy: :sad: Why did you not listen?! Even dedicated entrants are sour and disgruntled now! :wailing:

i always do the same... its beyond a joke now how many times we've been reporting these glitches over the last however many events and yet not even a single reply about whats being done about it! thats why ive given up on them. i still vote though because i know quite a few who put a lot of effort in as we can see from the 'post your entry' threads :hug:

Seems like a simple thing to ask for BVG to fix their cash cow. :haha:

One of these days players will stop pumping money into it. I could not believe the rooms I've seen where they spent dozens of yo cash to shoot for the perfect bonus score. That is the trickiest form of marketing I've seen in a very long time. BVG plays off our pride and insecurities in our decorating skills, and converts that into sales. And Yo has been consuming it at an alarming volume. It is no wonder BVG won't give up on these gem events.

These gem events are dead to me now. If I get something cool I can use in a room, then I keep it. Otherwise all of it hits the AH within moments of hitting my inventory. And I will allow the resentment and bitterness to fester, coagulate, and infect my view of this game for as long as these things continue. I will poison every player I interact with and make them feel as guilty as I can for supporting this abuse. For I have also been a contributor to the problem by telling BVG it is ok. And it is not. It is everything besides ok.

We are being used and abused in the worst manner.

The recipe for success doesn't change............

1. Make good stuff.
2. Price it fairly.
3. Put it in the store.
