Default A little bit disappointed..SUGGESTION

Everyone knows about the Contests and Prizes galore.


WELL, its only available to Gifted and Gift Gurus. Well that seems a little unfair, correct?

Well, what if, instead of that rule we did the following rules:

To host a contest you must have:

  • A member for at least 2 months
  • Have at least 2 lime rep bars
  • Have over at least your rainbow stars

Because lots of people want to host contests but sometimes, do not get accepted through the gift trainee process.

I think they have that rule to protect members who may not know the value of their items, and may want to just give them away. I understand how you feel, though.

If you really want to host a contest, you have two options:
Become Gifted and make it in Contest and Prizes and Galore or host a PSF contest.
This is the only way that it works, and it's not about to change. People would start making even more spam posts for rainbows, and beg for rep. That = not fun.
So no, I don't think this is a good idea.

Yep. Same thing with the "OMM LOLZ, GEIF REP!!!".

The rules are fine the way they are. It's up to admins to decide, users posting here can't really change anything.

The reason that it is restricted to members of that status is that we have earned it. It is one of the "perks" that comes with Gifted/Guru status.
Posts may be spam posts, rep may be spam rep.
However, gifteds/gurus have truly earned it.

I don't think that Webkinzgurl23's suggestion was to try to gain or earn anything for herself. I think her intention was to be generous. There are many members here that don't have the same perks, but they have not gained rep with spam. Not everyone likes to trade, and chose not to be 'gifted'. That has nothing to do with how polite, helpful or kind someone is.

The Contests Galore rules are in place because experience has taught us that they are necessary. There were bad experiences which we don't want to see repeated.

All the various types of contest can be done as Contests For Foods. Some have multiple rounds, some get quite complex. They are very entertaining, fun for both the host and contestants. The only difference is in the prize.

What you are suggesting is that this should be based off of REP and spamming just to get to rainbow stars. It makes no difference if a member has 1 box of REP or 10. REP abuse would be more prevalent just so members could get the 2 lime bars and that is not the intent of REP at all.
rainbow stars: Why have at least 5,000 posts? The member could join, and post all over the game section and that is it.
Hosts are Gifted/Gift Guru because they will send the prizes. If they fail to send out the prizes they risk their membership here. There is the members contest for food and there is the disclaimer on there about the sending of the prizes. Some do not send psfs. Once a member is gifted, it is something to look forward to, to host a contest other than food. All members can enter the contests though.
