The main site holiday events were fun. They actually put thought into them. There was a story that unfolded before your eyes and you played along. The prizes were great and you didn't need to spend real money to get them. You got to trick or treat through towns during Halloween and carol around during Christmas.
New items came out about once a week, the economy was such that your could afford most of them, there were no gold generators, and no one had heard of recolors.
I hate what this place has become. Almost all of my friends are gone, and the ones that are left I don't really talk to. There's nothing to unite us anymore. Can we please just go back to the way things were five years ago?
