If EA want to sell simoleans...

    ...it would be a good idea not to force players to hunt for them and just hope there is a lot open with one available. Shouldn't there be an EA-sponsored Welcome lot that is open all the time and easy to find, with an ATM on it? Specially as lot owners are not actually being rewarded for having them, and they are expemsive to buy. I mean, *if* EA actually want to encourage rather than discourage simolean buying.

    I see a lot of ATM's around EA Land. But yea I guess if someone was playing when no one else was on it would be hard to find one.

    I think they should choose a team of people who will volunteer to keep an official EA Welcome lot open round the clock and give them free (full-featured) accounts for doing so.

    I have an ATM at my store, and its generally open AFK, which seems to attract a lot of critisism.

    So i guess the moral of that story is, AFK stores are 'a bad idea' until you actually need one of course.

    edit - not getting at the poster in any way, just a general observation

    I don't have any problem about AFK stores! Most RL stores are pretty much AFK anyway these days [​IMG]

    Yeah my local Wal-Mart, Grocery stores, Clothing shops, Hardware stores, Dollar stores, Fast food joints, Hobby shops, 7-Eleven, Blockbuster, Starbucks, and Tim Hortons just to name a few are always away when I go into their places of business because I mean why the heck do staff need to be there if customers are going to spend money on them anyway?...god forbid they have to act like employers and employees in their business and answer questions, reply to comments, and maintain a healty social environment for customer satisfaction.
     
  8. So true Calvin lol... I guess what she meant was that more r.l. stores nowadays aren't doing the passive-aggressive 'power selling' tactic. Instead they'll tend to leave customers alone to browse, without being in their face pushing a sale on them from the moment they walk in. As a customer I can't stand that - I'd rather be left alone, but hope a salesperson would be available if I have questions... I don't mind afk stores - I'll just IM the owner/roomie if I have a question - but it's the afk stores with 10 people hiding that I can't stand lol...
