Gaia - Unfair, or Overprotective
I have recently come accost a forum, and it struck my interest. It was about Mr.Snuggles- and his banning. I'm NOT saying if he did it or not, I'm just saying it inspired me. That brings my to the main topic, is Gaia unjust? Or is Gaia just overprotective?
Banning: a sign of punishment, brought to those who don't follow the rules.
Botting: "Refreshing" or "Useing a program to play the games for you"
Botted gold?: (I bet alot of you have not heard this one) The gold raised from people who "bot". Items bought with this gold become "Botted items" If you ever sell an item on the marketplace and someone buys it with "botted gold" you are banned. If you trade and item for "botted gold" you are banned. If someone gives you an item bought with "botted gold" You are again, banned.
It's not safe to buy anything- nor sell anything on Gaia anymore! Why is that? Has Gaia become to serious about all of this??
"You can fix all of the problems of the world- But in time it will create more problems" I'm sure that when gaia came up with the Botted gold thing it was useful! Because, many people are smart about it, and send the money- item etc. To their main from a mule. So this would stop that, It would ban the main AND the mule. But what about the person who the items were bought from? They get banned as well? But they did nothing!! They were merely a victim. Unjust?
(Gaian Seen unjust banning; It is were a large group of people believe firmly that this Gaian is innocent and was wrongfully changed.)
Back to the banning,In an example of "gaian Seen unjust banning" Is x Mr Snuggle x ; I'm sure most of you have heard of him, he was the number 1 fisher for a long time.. until what? Well he got banned for botting. Many people claim that he would never do something like that- and Gaia just thinks that since he is doubling his score every month for fishing it has to be botting.I myself do not know if he was botting or if he was not, hey! It could have just been that he bought a botted item, or if he sold something and got botted gold, or that he botted himself. At first Gaia was just doing what they normally do, ban the botters, but because of so many people strongly believing in his innocence it has become a huge matter. I believe that Gaia should look at this more closely, and not just assume anymore. But it is not just with this case that they should look closely at, it is ever case of botting,scamming. Every time someone gets banned they should look for the motive of it all. If they were merely the victim or the full blown criminal.
Thinking about all of this, it brings me back to when everyone was talking about the 2% tax, How gaia was not paying attention to the people who are the most important- the players. By leaving us in the dark about important decisions, people start to lose the fun in gaia. They become afraid of being banned/scammed/ignored. So they quite. gaia is losing an average of every 3/8 people every day! Just from them not having fun anymore. Gaia has become so serious like a real community, the biggest reason for people to join gaia is to get away from that! Get away from the stress and et away from the hard times. They just want some peace!
I, myself have become so frustrated trying to play gaia- but I'm not going to give up. Why not? cause I know I can change it, with help of course. I want gaia to be fun again! Like when I had just joined. But now.. Now I just feel like a little 7 year old being forced to grow up- to take care of his/her family because their parents had pasted away. You have no more time for fun- it's all work, all you see is that hardships. I want to look to the bright side! I want to be positive! I want to live through my childhood! I want to have fun again.
