There are so many beggars in Wizard City now that you can't carry on a conversation with anyone without solicitations popping up over and over. It's gotten so bad it ruins the game for everyone else. Many are just trying to trick newcomers out of treasure cards only to port away without fulfilling the promise of help or trades. It's gotten out of hand and needs to be dealt with.

Are excessive and disruptive solicitations of goods from other players grounds for being reported? Shouldn't it be?

I know exactly what you mean -_-........When i was just strolling around in wc on my dragon mount, i had 5 noobs ask me to gift them a mount for their noob treasure cards. Why on earth would i give them a permanent mount that costs at least 50,000 when i already saved up 90,000 to get my own dragon mount? NO AMOUNT OF TREASURE CARDS IS WORTH 50,000 GOLD!!!! If i could save up that much gold then anyone else should be able to. Just find a boss you can easily kill and save the drops and sell them....its so easy -_-

I KNOW! I constantly get asked for stuff ALL the time. and i say "why?" and they say because i NEED it. and i said "earn your own like i did, sorry." i said it nice though. gosh, pan handlers in the game too, as if there were so many in real life as it is. i come to this game to get away from all of that. haha. i worked hard for the stuff i buy, whether i earn it in the game and sell things or in real life. hehe. :)

ALSO they see how much they cost, obviously they cannot afford to get one themselves, so what makes them think we would be able to go and just buy some random person an expensive item like so? if i did that for every begger on there, i would be in debt! haha.

I know what you mean people always beg me for a mount because they see me on my tiger mount they want one and say they will give me cards for a mount which is really annoying and if i say no they start to beg and beg and keep on following me until i have to port away i think something should be done about this i get asked to many times in one day!

My personal favorite is standing in the Bazaar and a level 3 wizard friend requests. Now what can THIS mean, I wonder. Well, it means that wizard wants cards, codes (which I don't have), crown items or help. I soloed my way through most of this game, as I am sure many grands did, and I did not stand somewhere, begging for money, cards, equipment or help. Suck it up, buy a minion card or two, and go forth to fight. I wish there was a moderator who could freeze players who beg non stop, but I guess it's up to the more mature players to deal with this.

That is always happening to me. there was a lvl1 (I am serious) who said if you give me a mount i will give you all my tresure cards and all he had (get redy for this) was a tiny little imp. it makes me angry that he tryed to report me for not agreeing to do the trade plz fix this.

Some beggars just won't give up! One day, a noob friend of mine asked for wings. I told her that I didn't have enough crowns. She asked if I could buy her some crowns. Do they think we're rich just because we have a cool mount? If you want wings so bad, buy or farm for one day wings.

I am not nice to beggars. Begging is rude,and I deal with it the same. We need member-only worlds,and that would drastically cut down on the beggars,and others who just like to cause problems.

I have NO idea why people keeps asking for mounts, why can't they fight rattlebones for 1 day mounts, that can at least make them stop asking for some

Like even if I buy one day mounts people go "OH PLEEEEEEEEESEEEEE" I did that one day just to SEE what would happen and people started asking for mega Snack Packs.

The most cruel thing happened to me yesterday. I was in the shopping district and i saw a guy with four other guys (all friends except the trader) they were all level one so they didnt know much about the game,The trader had said I WILL GIVE YOU CODES FOR YOUR TREASURE CARDS. Well they did but....guess wat the trader did? He ported and he also reported them! Why in the world would he do that?! I think its just sick that people would be so cruel as to do that to a level one(oh btw if your thinking they had weak cards your wrong,i was listening to them talk sometimes,mainly because one of them was my friend. They obviously just got a crown card ( no membership ) so of course they boust all those cards just to trade them to some guy. One word:Cruel
