    I think those 3 you listed all have different objectives within the game. Clearly the store owners are in it for my my arent you an excellent sim by getting into the top 10 league of not-really-playing-but-still-a-necessity-to-the-game groupies, afk skillers are taking a nap or watching the latest episode of American Idol because well everyone knows skilling is about as much fun as American Idol anyway. Jammers, they can make more money going out of their rl home, walking down the street and picking the discarded pennies from the ground and using that in a jar collection to pay for their monthly subscription compared to the current slap in the face payouts...so whats the point in hanging around the pixel table?

    So all in all I guess AFK is awesomely acceptable because I mean who wants to play a bug infested, going downhill, promise-lacking game for longer in the day then they really need to?

    I could be wrong on all that though [​IMG]

    store owners - makin money
    skillers - gettin skills (more payouts workin money objects)
    jammers / gnomers - makin money

    so they all might be distreacted with seinfeld .......
    why less bad wth one or the other

    I thought the issue was that it was annoying when store owners were afk because sims coming to the store might need to ask them for something? like, prices on something or to buy something that isnt stocked? Of course, they can go elsewhere, but it's a much better service when the store people are there to help you. I don't really mind them being afk myself, i just go soemwhere else if i need to.
    So i think that's how it's different from skillers or people doing money objects being afk- afk store people cause annoyance/inconvenience to some people, while they make a profit, while skillers and money object uses afk-ness doesn't impact anyone else.

    correction AFK skillers impact me, anyone who has seen me in the skill houses over past few days will already know i like to be the center of attention ROFL and i dont like talking to myself [​IMG]
    but if you ever need somone to skill with who is not afk then send meh a message i will talk to the cows come home lol
    probably best to send to Nodster and not Noddy Bond had a bit of a name change when i come back [​IMG]
    I prided myself on having the only store in DG to never be open it was great but i opened it for when people asked and if i was being lazy i sent them to the Garage because i knew Ms Nito was always open and never afk [​IMG]
