That's not anything new, I've always been asked to give gold and items, I just say I don't have the gold/questing. (Which a lot of the time I actually do.) I don't think much of it, since it isn't all that frequent for me at least. Most just want the easy way out. I just politely turn them down, and move on.
I think people know how to earn Gold they're just lazy or impatient; they want their quested item right now instead of saving up over a period of time.
Personally, I find it more rewarding to know that I saved a certain amount of Gold for an item I was questing.
I haven't actually been contacted by people begging for Gold but, if I notice they are a new user, I just notify or guide them to how they can earn Gold themselves.
There'll always be people who try to take short cuts to get what they want, instead of earning it themselves. I just ignore those begging pms. If I'm in the mood to donate, I'll seek users out who I feel deserve it~3nodding
i'm always confused when people talk about this, because i've never gotten a begging pm once in my like, 6 years on here. i'm confused what beggars seem to target, cause some people complain all the time about getting pms, but some people i know have never gotten any.
Same... Although, it must not be too common of an occurrence, otherwise you'd imagine more of these "complaint" threads popping up all over the place cat_rolleyes
I haven't actually gotten a message like that for a while...but I'm not counting the ones begging for my Nice Suit for Work though. xd
The ones that I dislike the most are the Rally thug beggars asking for Lusty Scoundrel, Cloud, or Demonic Anklets...YEAH RIGHT AS IF I WOULD EVER WILLINGLY HELP FURTHER INCREASE YOUR POPULATION. scream
I had a friend outright ask for gold once...
it went some along the lines of, will u give me gold nice pplz, r else were no friends.
I was like... I don't want to reply, but I feel like I should... I didn't, but it bothered me because it was a friend I hadn't talked to in months!
but, there's a point to which you can horde your things, then giving some away is a nice feeling c:
Oh, oh. On the topic of friends asking for gold.
I have a friend who constantly manages to get banned ask to share an account
with me. I thought she meant this account at first and I literally shat a brick.
You think I would share this, which I have spent hundreds of rl money on,
with someone as sketchy as you? LOL Flesh and blood doesn't know
this password. So you are certainly not special enough for that.
I get asked if people can ghost my items all the time though. That is
actually ten times worse than being asked for gold. Like. Can I haz
borrow ur thea, pale, rainy day, and botns thnx.
I've had to restart account's from scratch 5 time's, Lost millions and item's worth millions. I've worked hard and im once again slowly but surely getting stuff back. Some people are to lazy to earn for themselves. I couldn't ask someone for gold , even if they put it in trade . I'm taking something someone else worked hard for , that to me is just wrong.
I've tipped you and forced my 5g on you. How do you feel about that? lol
Seeing that it's 25 gold lol , i just tipped you it back 3nodding
