    have the number of griefers in TT declined some? Being completely serious, I have noticed less stinking and seemingly intentional attempts at being rude. Not just towards me but overall. Of course, I noticed this shortly after the "! Report" button was added. Perhaps those who like to be trouble makers are behaving better now or TT is actually taking action against those who have demonstrated that their idea of fun is to be mean/nasty towards other players...

    I hadn't noticed less stinking, but then I was never stunk all that much to begin with. I have been playing a lot more in Nutty River, which seems to weed out a lot of the more casual players and kids who don't know any better.

    Yes.. just you.. just kidding..

    From watching little one and her friends - they just don't have time to get into trouble right now! When they can go online, they actually have a time limit and less time to get into trouble. That helps a bit. But, the ones that do enjoy causing trouble - they do it in a much bigger way. The group she plays with are all harmless but they do know who are the grieffers. (pardon my spelling)

    Also, most of them are deathly afraid of the report button! It's funny really. I'm sure that has helped out quite a lot. Now, that's just saying it's only the kids. Maybe the adults also have a few more responsibilies and have realized that to get anything done, you must either be nice or be ignored. This game relies heavily on cooperation and I'm sure it would be much more difficult without friends :)

    I'm sorry, Wolfman. I've been slacking. I'll do better and stink you more often. Thank you for pointing out the error of my ways.
  6. I have noticed less as far as river goes, but not with noobs.

    I'm referring to those who are most likely adults and who do things intentionally to cause problems for others. Noobs aren't griefers, they're just inexperienced.

    I haven't seen that family trio that used to grief in the VP. They would throw their bodies on the VP when he was stunned to unstun him. We won that vp even with their griefing but I would have loved to have that report button back then. I ran into the same trio on the back 9 one day. They were trying to kill off toons that way and succeeded quite a few times. Rumor had it that it was a mom, dad, and daughter working together. Haven't seen those 3 in a while so maybe that report button is good for something!
  9. When I was working Anita Goh in cash, I got stunk ALL the time in the CFo and the mints. Stinky Phorts on the other hand, hasnt been griefed as much. Granted he still has 42 more CFOs to go until hes maxxed.

    I hadn't been stunk in a while until this week when I got on really early to do a quick VP with a friend, in River, and didn't have much time. This TF of mine is a Name Dropper and there were quite a few Short Changers there, which I didn't have a problem with. But the shuffling began when another Hollywood walked in, apparently with the Short Changers wanting to get the 2 HW's on. It went on long enough, that both my friend and I gave it up so I could get to work, and the You Stinks flew! I just replied "Likewise I'm sure" and laughed.

    I usually have limited time to play now, so I mostly have TFs, but it seems to me I only get them when I won't play, rather than when I do. Although I was tempted yesterday when I was in the bullion and let the randoms I was with run ahead to the part where the pads are moving over the green slime because I've been pushed before when 3 try to jump at the same time. Sure enough, one fell in, I'm going, and they run up to jump with me, and pushed ME in!! Sigh and shake of the head.
  11. I have noticed less greif since school started. But I still get the stinky when I turn off my friends request. It's like they don't believe that my list is actually full. How do they think I got to 119 laff? Ooh thats right I kept one spot open just for that 44 laff toon that ran up to me in an area that they shouldn't even be in cause they don't have the experience to play yet.

    MY BAD!
