Default I have a question!

I have a question about the communal contest. If the goal is met, does everyone who signed up get the prize and secondly...what is to keep someone from signing up but never participating. Would appreciate an answer asap. Thank you in advance.

Well firstly, yes everyone who signs up will get a prize if the goal is met. Secondly, I don't quite understand your second question, If you wouldn't mind explaining.

Yes, if you simply sign up, and not even play, you will still be able to get a prize if the goal is reached. In my opinion, that's really sort of unfair, I mean, your having others do all the work for you.

And there is nothing that can keep someone from not signing up and then not participating, its step and step.

Thanks Ladybug and Stormy Panda. I love to play that game and today I reached level 8 and got a new tagline for my page. I have a hurt arm and if I play for long periods it really hurts so as I was playing, I thought what am I hurting myself for those people who sign up and do not do anything. You ansdwered my question. I don't need the kc, I have more than 3 million so I was basically doing it to help others. At least those who try to help themselves. Have a great day.

I meant Ilovepotatoes.

I meant to say ilovepotatoes. Thank you!

Does seem unfair doesn't it? I know my family has certainly put in it's time with this contest this weekend. I can usually give about 7500 points each time I play. They should make it to where you must play it at least once.

Your very welcome.
Your right, I really don't need any KC either, I have lots, mainly from gardening though, anyway; I usually only play the Communal Contest Game if I'm fairly good at it and I enjoy to play it. I think they should make you play at least once to get the prize after signing up.

Default Re: I have a question!

I agree with you guys. I even feel bad if it's a game I'm not great at, but then I make up for it with the games I'm really good at so I guess it evens out. I think it's on the honor system as far as signing up and not playing. Not cool and not good. I wonder if they could tell if you at least tried to play before you got the prize. I do think most of the participants have enjoyed them just for the fun. We all know we have either enough KC or are better at another game and can earn enough for the item faster than if we played the contest game, but what fun would that be? \

I do wish they'd throw in either a rare or an e-store item to keep the excitement going.

Default Re: I have a question!

As mentioned in another thread:

You may not like the rules, but because they are the rules it is fair.

At least the people who "only" vote have made an effort to participate in that way.
They have done as much as those who play a 2-second game.
[Better than the many who live in a democracy and can but don't vote.]
And you don't know why they didn't play:
some work on weekends
some may not have computer time - there are people without them at home
some may be sick

People who play get extra money and any trophies available.
So that is their bonus.

If no one voted, there would be no prize selected.

I'm glad Ganz took the noble road on this.
[Would appreciate a "better" non-WStore prize sometime though.]

Life seems better when you are generous and happy for others.
