    Totally agree @RaquelCesar (GB1) I don't know how that post can be considered rude.

    Hey guys!

    the announcement already told you: The Bigfarm-Team invasion is starting :D

    My name is Pichu and I’m working as a developer in the Bigfarm-Team for around 4 years now! If you have any questions regarding technical issues or other problems feel free to contact me. I will also keep an eye open if something is not working as intended!

    In my free time I love to play other games like Overwatch or World of Warcraft and a lot of VR-Games. So in the end I am a typical nerd... :/

    If you want to know more things about me feel free to ask!

    Cheers,

    Pichu

    Welcome Pichu! It is very nice to have a staff member that can personally listen to as many people's opinions as possible. I'm sure everyone will appreciate to have you here to listen to your opinions.  :)

    One thing I would love to see in the future, if possible, is to have something similar to the organic market, but something the cooperative can work on together as a whole.

    Perhaps they can have tasks in steps like the weekly events. Just an idea.  :) 

    Welcome pichu  I love this game and have been a moderate gold spender here but after two years have decided no more gold spending due to no gold lock and I am not alone just joining an existing bandwagon.  While we have three players here who don't have a problem with this the VAST majority do.  I talk to players and a lot will not buy gold due to no safeguard. This is your biggest flaw to this game, one that the players feel they are being taken advantage of,  not listened to and unappreciated. Other games have safety checks on their cash product such as diamonds and by not doing it with this game players see it as GREED on part of GGS. If you want to change your image with the players this is the place to start.

    I am very disappointed in you that one of the staff members of this game is immediately being welcomed by an extremely rude attack on the Big Farm staff. I feel that it is fine to ask for a gold lock, but the manner in which you "demanded" it is extremely inappropriate and is not needed. The staff member is coming to listen to our opinions to help us enjoy the game more and you immediately flare up at him?

    Edit: This post is not meant to be any kind of personal attack towards Damaria3. This is just supposed to point out that we need to try our best to respect our staff members, since they are the ones responsible for the game and without them we wouldn't be playing this game today.

    @ninjahuman (AU1)  Yes you meant this as a personal attack but that is ok hope you feel better. No where in my post to Pichu was I attacking him or her, what was stated has been written here many times by other players. This game is in existence due to people willing to pay their hard earned money for gold.  It is free to play due to those of us who buy gold they do not offer this out of the kindness of their hearts it is a business. If people do not pay, the game no longer exists, with this in mind they want to increase their gold sales, to do this they need to safeguard peoples gold.  There is no DEMAND here it is commonsense and good business practice. This person is here to understand the needs of the players, promote goodwill with the company, not here to be stroked that is not going to help this game be here in a year or five years. I want this game here in five years so I give an honest straight forward message in the hopes that will happen.

    Very well said, @ninjahuman (AU1); I fully agree with you. That first post is downright offensive to a lot of players, GGS and the forum, and certainly not very welcoming to a staff member! There is no need to apologize whatsoever!

    Not sure why it is rude to ask for security of bought gold, your money that went to developers, not rude what so ever to ask for a security to make sure your gold doesn't  'disappear' by mistake.Lets face it, without our money there is no game so why find it rude when a person asks for a lock? Come off your high chair.
    It isn't rude to ask for one; it's rude because of how it was asked.

    Yes, I totally agree, for the safety of player's gold, something like a gold lock would be a priority. I just don't think it was okay the way Damaria3 asked for it.

    Anyway, we should probably just put this aside and rather focus on welcoming our developer to the forum.

    Hey Damaria3!

    The topic you mentioned is really well known for me and we are discussing a lot about this. Therefore I cannot promise you something yet and the answer from the Q&A is still valid. Maybe we will change something in the future.
