As if it is, I would like to stop wasting my time on this leaderboard. Thanks

Nah we’ve been discussing it in another thread and that leaderboard is going to change. Also note there is no Peen for it yet.

KYOUBAI IS SUPER-SERIOUS BUSINESS

Evil Trout Posted:

Hey there.

We discussed this at our meeting and we decided unfortunately that the raffle is not allowed.

I agree that it’s not a direct transfer of BP for Flezz, but I also think that for auctions that are “Raffle Eligable”, you will earn more money as a result.

Even with the Buy it Now stipulation, you will still sell more auctions that otherwise would have failed.

So indirectly, you are still buying Flezz for BP, and we can’t allow it. Also, allowing this kind of contest would open the floodgates for other raffle-style things, and I just want to keep it simple around here.

Fair enough. Thanks for reviewing it.

Now, what about a promotion that had ‘No Purchase Necessary’, but was designed to increase traffic to my ‘StoreFront’ thread, such as my ‘Sign The Guestbook’ promotion?

Acid Flux Posted:

Sign the Guest Book

Pending Crotch Zombie’s deliberation on Kyoubai policies, I’m designing a method to increase traffic to my Storefont Thread, which will hopefully increase traffic to my Auctions. However, no purchase at all is necessary for this promotion. Please note that this (and any other promotion) will only be officially offered so long as they are deemed not to break any rules set by Crotch Zombie.

This ‘Guest Book’ is simply a link to another thread in the Contest Forum. In that thread, you would be required to complete two tasks. First, you must send me a friend request (I’m going for the Miss Popularity E-Peen, and this is a creative way to do it). Second, you must ‘Sign the Guest Book’, but you must do so in a specific way, which would be explained here in this thread.

In other words, to know the right way to ‘sign’ in that thread, you have to first read this thread… or at least the first post.

And the proper way to sign will be different for each person, so you can’t just copy what everyone else is doing in the Contest thread. You have to actually determine it here first, and then you can Sign the Guest Book and thereby enter the Contest.

A prize of Brownie Points would then be given to a random person that signed the Guest Book properly, once I achieve the E-Peen. After that, I would continue to run the Contest as a promotional Event at different times.

Absolutely NO PURCHASE is required for this contest. You are simply ‘browsing’ in the store and then Signing the Guest Book.

This is simply a ‘Miss Popularity’ thread (which has been done before), but with a small twist. And again, no purchase of anything is necessary. All that’s necessary is to simply view my Storefront thread and find the hidden ‘keyword’ that allows you to properly sign up in the actual Contest thread.

Can Johnny and I get special peens? Or do I have to suffer horrible Tubmail lag for just a few thousand Flezz?

EDIT: That’s not an invitation to simply remove all my several thousand “[One Million Porno Pbumwords] Auction Win!” Tubmails or anything like that.

KYOUBAI IS SUPER-SERIOUS BUSINESS

I’m wondering if there will also be a Leaderboard for ‘Total Auction Winnings’ & ‘Total Auction Purchases’, as in total amount of Flezz, not just total number of sales.

Can we give gifts through Kyoubai? For example, can I make a contest where the winner is selected randomly (possibly by a mod) and the prize is   transfered through Kyoubai? With a random selection by an impartial 3rd party and sufficient time for all players who would be interested to join, it would be impossible to rig the contest to transfer   between collaborating parties or perform other prohibited acts.

...wait, what?

Smells like it’s either some lowlife begging for Flezz or a TRANSFER.

4 forum visits per day just aint enough, but purchasing MORE of them is an ILLEGAL enhancement.. And yet when i try saving them up i only get up to like, 12. It’s a pain, really.

All that needs to happen is for another Headset to enter the market.

But my guess is that CZ’s concern is getting a reign on what they perceive as illegal flezz tampering before introducing another such item.

Evil Trout Posted:

A bunch of people have found ways to use Kyoubai to transfer Flezz.

While we appreciate people finding exploits, anyone who abuses exploits will find themselves penalized. The best thing to do if you find something wrong with Kyoubai (or any other aspect of Forumwarz, really) is to report it to us and help us fix it.

Thanks!

I thought the point of Kyoubai was to exchange flezz for items? Isn’t that the same thing?

BritishSevenfold Posted:

Nope. The problem is as follows.

Player A wishes to transfer flezz to Player B, which is not allowed.

Player B creates an auction for a Marble, valued at  1.

Player A bids  1,000,000 for that Marble.

Auction finishes, and Player A has effectively given Player B  1,000,000 by abusing the Kyoubai system.

It’s much more difficult to do this now, with the current rules. And anyone discovering a loophole or workaround is supposed to report it as an exploit, but not to actually use the exploit themselves.

And that right there is the “joys” of creating a game. They gotta make sure there isn’t loop holes or people will exploit them. I’m glad I don’t make games for a living. Log in to see images!

I put a raffle ticket for 72 hours up in kyoubai last week knowing I’ll be gone till the weekend.When I logged in yesterday I realized it was confiscated.

I demand my raffle ticket back, or the equivalent amount of flezz which was offered for it. This is ridiculous.
