Re: Going Away Party at the Ganz eStore, February 15th

How dare they create an exciting new WShop theme, then turn around and make parts of it available only in the eStore!!! Is this the tip of the iceberg and an acute indicator of things to come with all future WShop development? Throw us a few bones we can buy with KinzKash but if we want the complete set, we have to open our wallets? If this is their mindset, I can foresee more and more free themes being retired in favor of new themes which will end up costing big bucks en masse.
I am in agreement with your entire post but I edited for a few key points. This isn't the first new theme that they have done this with though. The Coffee Shop theme has had a few items that were only available in the e-store also. I chose to pass on those because I didn't believe that the $ they were asking for the items was justified. I've splurged for some of the E-store items but I have to really want them & think that they are worth the $$ they are asking for them. Some things I wait for until they have the 5000 point sales. It is very frustrating to be shown a new theme only to have some of the most desirable items only available via the e-store. I'm passing on the whole Spa theme because to me it isn't worth my $$. I've also resisted the e-store floors & wallpaper because I can make perfectly lovely rooms using the W-Shop items. I love the Snow Fort but I made the mistake of not grabbing the two pricier items, Siege Tower & Snowball Launcher, when they were available at a lower price for Deluxe members. I'm getting to the point where I will have to either stop buying the plush or stop buying e-store because it really adds up fast.
