What a great point!

I don't really mind what the prize is, if it's storage I keep it, if it goes well in one of my rooms, I keep it, if not I sell it.

I don't understand how something can be deemed a rip-off, when you are getting something for free

This sounds like a good idea! The only problem I see is that there are still hackers who run up the points, and I'm sure they'd do it on this contest!

It can't really be a rip-off when we win exactly what was voted for -- and we choose whether or not to play. Besides, there have already been people on this thread who admit they play for just a "millisecond" or a minute or two. Why should they be able to get an exclusive? [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] is probably offering reasonable prizes, considering there are always going to be a lot of people who just play a couple minutes no matter how valuable the item.

Exactly! I don't think of it as just getting something for ME; my effort helps some younger kids get something they maybe can't afford easily. It's the spirit of the contest that's important.

Well think at it this way if you do the contests and get the items then sell the items you can save up to buy a rare item
Or here's another way if you are the number 1 player with the most points cumulitive you will get like an exclusive

Look, just sell the item. If you don't like any of the items that are being voted on as the price, then pick the most expensive one, and sell it if the goal is achieved. Or, if you do like one, you get it for free instead of needing to save up for it.

Default Re: Communal contest a rip off?

I think it is a good idea for 3 reasons:

1. Everyone works together
2. You get KC from playing
3. You get a prize that even if you don't like you can sell for a decent amount of KC.

And it's not like you pay KC (or real money ) to enter it. So I don't think it's a ripoff.

Default Re: Communal contest a rip off?

I like the communal contest! I think it is a great idea! Someone earlier mentioned the possibility of Ganz offering a rotation of 10 items that are not sold anywhere else as prizes. I rather like that idea. But since that doesn't happen, I'm content to vote on what is there, play to help the community, and if I win an item that I don't want, I'm free to sell it.

I'm glad for WI. It is nice to have a place to post our opinions and discuss ideas.
