Here are the top 3 things that have faded. Note: Dates are not really released and faded for time.
1. Treasure Card Robbing: Jan 2010- May 2010 Ever since Gifting came to the Spiral, people started scamming people for like a code for wings, homes, and more. On May 2010, scamming started to become less as scammers succeeded their job and flew away from robbed wizards.
2. Spam Chat: Apr 2009- Jan 2010 This was a major problem for people chatting in Ravenwood when someone advertises a party in the School Towers. It really annoyed many wizards when 1 of them spams the same thing. When they stopped Spam Chat, wizards can chat without getting annoyed
3. Tower Parties: Apr 2009- Oct 2009 Before Housing came, many wizards started parties in the school tower because they had no housing. This is how spam chat started. When Housing started they had no more Spam chat and tower parties
So those are the top 3 things that faded from Tower Parties - Spam Chat - Sacamming. This really helped Wizard101
Well, none of this is gone. Every once in a while somebody asks me for treasure cards because they were robbed.
This happened a while ago, to my baby Death wiz. Since I was new to gaming at the time, I had no idea that it was a problem and complied with the player's request to trade treasure cards (just two of mine for two of his), only to have him take them without giving me his in return. He had, however, added me as a friend, so I placed him on Ignore and was going to report him, but then I read Zeke's post...
Scamming is a form of cyber-bullying, and both are reportable offenses on all other sites... so why not here? Most of the victims of this deceit are new players or children, many of whom are inexperienced or aren't old enough to "know better", as KI expects us to. If the scammers are not dealt with, they can and will continue to rob wizards of not only items, but of a safe and enjoyable gaming experience; why KI continues to not only tolerate, but PERMIT this kind of behaviour is beyond me. Perhaps a Mod can offer a bit of insight into why these things continue to go unpunished.
