what would they be?

(only said 2 because i figured gem confirmation would blow everything else away)

oh, and i didn't phrase it right, but i meant eventually open up the boxes. i support TL's right to make money (although not by being mean to customers).

Re-release of past LTO's, delete neighbour invites that aren't answered, categorize neighbours (by star rating, last login time (to help figure out if they've quit, this is by far most important one), have all boxes open for limited time of 1 week from release day, so we can buy as much as we want from it directly, after that week, put everything back in the box for everyone that missed shopping during that time, and yes I think everyone wants some sort of a confirmation before we use gems.

If it doesn't, it'll prove that TL's been right all along, and that people really don't care what happens to their money, and will just keep handing it over no matter what's going on. I hope I'm wrong, but the pessimist in me is predicting that people will continue to focus too much on other game functions, and keep forgetting the fact that one of these issues involves real life cash... :\

I would have voted for gem confirm on the other 2 TL games I play - the only reason I didn't was because I haven't been gemtrapped on RS yet, so I voted for opening old boxes and new recipes.

My votes go to deleting neighbour invites and adding new recipes to non-main appliances. Can't devices be set to password confirm a purchase? I set my Android to.

Yes, absolutely. You can even turn off the ability to make purchases entirely. That's outside the games, though, and completely separate. In the games, you have to confirm nearly everything you do... unless it involves spending gems. The one element associated with peoples' real life money, is the only element that lacks confirmation.

The poll results are disturbing, but, sadly, not surprising. The "give me more reasons to give you money!" option is far ahead of the "stop taking my money without my consent!" option. Still not many votes yet, but... yeah it's gonna stay that way, I'd almost bet on it.

Hmm. I was going to say, IMHO, that the gem confirm option should have been left off, but on second thought... I have a feeling that after this survey's been up for a while, the results are going to be rather revealing. From a psychological viewpoint, this is actually quite fascinating...

They ARE hard to choose from, I gotta give ya that. Nice job! :cool:

see, my problem with the gem confirmation button really is more theoretical/moral, which is why i didn't vote for it. i think it makes TL decision makers bad people, but from a practical (and self-centered) standpoint, i knew what i was getting into when i paid for gems, and i only slipped up once in the game in which i did pay for them.

but the opening the boxes option is not really a "give me another reason to give you money" for me, it's actually me saving my money, because i spent so much trying to get a certain prize (fully aware of my own folly) that being able to just buy that particular prize would have saved both my money and frustration. which is also why i think it a good balance for TL to have boxes at first but then later open them up, because i eventually gave up on my desired prize - and TL lost a customer - but i would pay again if i knew i would get what i wanted.

and thank you! i really wish i could have put in more than 10 options though.

That makes sense, and I can see your point. But "give me another reason to give you money" came from my absolute refusal to have anything to do with boxes, because I won't spend gems unless I know what I'm getting, and the fact that if I could pick my prize, I'd probably be spending all of mine on box stuff. So it stands to reason that more people would be buying gems to get box stuff if they knew that they'd be getting exactly what they wanted out of it. So putting stuff out of the boxes will save some people money, but have others spending even more. They'll never see a dime out of me, but I could see box contents easily winning over a decent sized chunk of those who refuse to buy gems. :\

Looking at everything from the suggestion threads together in one concise little list like that... we've been begging for all that stuff for how long? Wow... says something about who really matters.

fortunately for me, i've been playing less than 6 months, so the frustration has not set in. this should be a new poll: is it better to
a) have the official word that your hoped-for change has been ruled out (sorry, people who wanted to move food to new counters)
b) have TL say they are working on your hoped-for change, but with no end date in sight (yes, i play dragon story on android)
c) have no announcement, and keep hope alive until you can't handle it anymore and have a nervous breakdown?

My vote go for gems confirm and open boxes so you can buy the prize that you want. It would be awesome if Team lava would make at least two changes based on this poll.

Can I vote twice for gem confirm? Lol

I voted once for gem confirm and once for delete unanswered pending neighbours.

I would also like a tip jar instead of tips on tables.

that would be awesome, but i never had any hope of it. i was just curious. didn't get a lot of results, but i was surprised--i thought deleting gifts from your inventory would do better for some reason, even though i didn't vote for it myself. anyway, too bad! would have liked to see what more people thought!

That's a really good idea, being able to pick up all the tips collectively, rather than tapping each and every one, I really hate the tipping system, it takes up way too much time, less time to actually enjoy the game itself.

Voted for the re-release of past LTOs and the open box options. I'm fond of buying LTO and decoration. :o Some of the past LTOs are so awesome looking. Too bad, I didn't have enough gems when it was first released. :(

If I could choose a 3rd vote, it will be for the pending friend invitation which are stuck in the request list for years. Darn! *Stares*

change 2 things hmm.....
I think well the catogorise neighbors deffently a yes... but other then I would love the option to stack iten in game so that we can build up some amazing looking restos... and but not last why not have the gues interact with gaming items or sit down in a sofa watch tv, so that should we say your resto are full, then instead of the guest getting angry they could go and play on something while they wait for free room for their meal :-D that could be funny and very helpful xx

I am exhausted, trying to get recipes cooked while working through the holidays. Trying to purchase windows that are available for like 12 more hours. And I did the same thing as yesterday ...as I'm playing and I'm drifting off to sleep... I accidentally spent my gems to cook the recipe, when I'm really trying to power cook... to accumulate gems. Ugh! WHY CANT THERE BE A CONFIRMATION BEFORE SWIPING MY GEMS?

New levels after 99 and recipes on basic appliances. These two would be real new content, while the ohters are just luxuries. Call me crazy, but it's kind of part of the game to have to look-out for gem-traps/buy stuff before it's removed in the first place IMO.

I have missed a lot over the past three years though:blue:
