A blog about....well about....something. Really.
To Those Who "Bump And Run"
Dear Aquarium Folks Who "Bump And Run" -

- and by that I mean when you bump a glow and don't actually play it and don't mention if you're capped or anything -

- Please don't think we don't know you're not playing. We know.

That glow last night? That ended with one player? That one player was me on my mule. (Yeah, Gaia, go ahead and slap my wrists for playing my own tank. The 648 gold my mule earned is going to make SUCH a difference in your new economy.)

So yeah. Those bumps? At least mention you're only bumping because you're capped. Even if you're lying, at least you won't make my feel like my tank is good enough to get Guild Credit For Bumping In Whatever Guild You're Trying To Earn Free Fish From, but nowhere near good enough for you to bring up and let sit there for 500 lousy gold while you go get a cup of coffee or take a restroom break or yell at your cat.

    I often agree with many of your posts but this one just sounded whiny / bitchy.
    A person bumping your glow thread during a glow is still helping you to promote your tank. You should be thanking them for it instead of bitching and whining.

    Have you ever stopped to consider that maybe it was a user with slow internet?
    Or a user who has already maxed out their play for the day?
    Or a user who for some other reason doesn't have time to play?
    But... still wanted to take the time to help you promote your tank?
    Or that possibly the user actually tried to play your game but for some reason the game failed to load?

    Back when I was on dial up I bumped a lot of tanks I didn't play. Loading a game often took several minutes and/or would sometimes hang up. But I could still help out by bumping the glow. Many tank owners thanked me for it rather than getting all upset over it.

    I really don't see cause for you to feel all victimized because someone was kind enough to bump your glow but did not play.
