It has the detriment of costing way too damn much and can't be used on already created thread.



Tomorrow it will be launched so it can be added to an already created thread.


Great. Doesn't solve the main problem.

your not the only one since I have to deal with spammers and assholes =w= So thanks for playing!


-pull a switch to have her drop into trap door-


-Floats there, as Bunneh can fly.- Welcome to the GCD. You post an opinion thread, you better be open to ALL opinions. Dropping people out makes you look like an jerk. And in my case, is likely to be ignored. stare


BACK ON TOPIC:

Look, to be honest, the feature caters to the "LOOK AT MEEEE!" posters out there.

So...the CB, the GD, and to a limited extent, the exchange and charity forums.

It is a bad call for discussion forums.

lol well I'm not going to use it, I never make threads.

100gc is hilariously overpriced either way. Maybe if, like, you could use your own images and logos to make things pretty. Even then... even then.

And who's to say it won't backfire magnificently in artshops- as in oh god look at that douchenozzle with their pimped post, they must not be that hard up for gold if they're paying for trifles like that

Which could be used on two of the birthday items in the cash shop, and either kept or sold for gold.

The thread pimping does nothing.

You can get a lot better things than a shitty preset art flob for a dollar.

Like a snickers bar, or an ebook, or a tube of toothpaste.

Or a Bunnihilation.

I don't know, Catena. Some of us like their threads to look as special as they feel. Ehehahaha...

I can see how it would be useful to some trying to stand-out in event forums, and how it would pull in some revenue to the site, but I don't expect it to make a decent profit purely because of how annoying it seems to be to others and how much it costs to change a simple header. Heck, I've only seen 2 promoted posts in the GCD since the release... and from what I've seen, user feedback on the feature is largely negative.
Though my feedback is biased because I am not a supporter of the feature, and in fact loath it.

Adblock is my refuge.

Some of us want to promote said threads not so much to draw others, but to annoy the tar out of others.

I find the pursuit of irritation well worth the investment, personally.

I don't think I like it. I think they should make it more expensive. Otherwise, the forums are going to be full of "pretty threads", and that will just be ugly, not to mention it would defeat the purpose.
Y'know it is a little strange that there have been colored posts and gaudy flobs that people waste time/money on for years now and this is the final straw

I mean besides the lack of customization it isn't really that ridiculous of a ploy

If they had just implemented some sort of emotelike thing
It would actually fit in pretty well with the entire "create your own world" deal
