TAGGED SHOULD TAKE ALL THE GHOST PETS THAT ARE ON THE SITE AND REMOVE THE STATS FROM THEM AND JUST LEAVE THE VALUE AND CASH DISPLAYED.
WITH THE GHOST PETS WITH ALL THE STATS DISPLAYED BECOMES CONFUSING TO OTHERS NOT KNOWING IF IT IS A REAL GHOST OR SOMEONE THAT IS USING A GHOST PHOTO TO PLAY THE GAME.
THE ONLY WAY TO CHECK AND SEE IF IT IS A REAL GHOST IS TO CLICK ON THE VIEW PROFILE AND IT WILL DISPLAY THIS PROFILE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
PLEASE SIMPLIFY THE VERIFICATION OF A REAL GHOST AND FROM SOMEONE USING THE PHOTO TO PLAY THE GAME.
"PLEASE REMOVE EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE VALUE AND CASH OF A REAL GHOST."
Tagged need to offer Silver Exchange along with there Gold Exchange at a Lesser Exchange and Cost this would allow the ones who can't afford to buy allot of gold a chance to buy Silver at Less Cost and Less Exchange
many pets players are happy with their owners and/or situation and banner up as "no buy" pets to avoid being taken out of these situations... the reasons are various but usually because good friends wish to stay together... there is currently no method a player can have limited and mutual agreed protection against other players who wish to split up these arrangements.. in the etiquette of the game buying a "no buy" pet is considered harassment
A solution would be to put a "NO BUY PETS PADLOCK" on our pet pages to prevent these potential harassments / bullying... put a padlock icon.... open and closed... when a pet AND it's owner BOTH mutally agree and click on the lock icon then the pet becomes "unavailable" to sell and it's buy button is dimmed.... something along these lines would make a real difference in player satisfaction with the game... all other issues and contraversies aside... it would give players some limited control over their ownership and prevent pets game harassment... not only is it an easy thing to do... it is the RIGHT thing to do..
how hard is it to get tagged to pay any attention to our repeated request for this feature.. why is that?
each pet would have a lil padlock icon.. or something similar... on it's page next to the pic somewhere... it has two positions... open and closed.... when it is open... that means that pet is AVAILABLE for sale.... period.... when it is closed... that means BOTH the owner and the pet have clicked on the icon to indicate the pet is LOCKED / UNAVAILABLE...
it takes a MUTUAL agreement between both pet and owner to activate the NO BUY padlock... once activated... EITHER ONE of the owner - pet pair can UNLOCK the pet by clicking the icon again... two in agreement can lock it and it takes BOTH OWNER AND PET TO DO THAT... to deactivate the palock... it only takes ONE... EITHER the owner or the pet to unlock it....
the programming construct is far simpler than most any other feature on the pet page... it's a simple logical field insertion...
OWNER CLICKS THE PET PADLOCK *AND* THE OWNED PET CLICKS PADLOCK = TRUE = PET UNAVAILABLE...
EITHER ONE OF THE OWNER *OR* PET DOES NOT / UNCHECKS PADLOCK = FALSE = PET AVAILABLE
easiest thing in the world to do... easier than instant grits... we are talking minor minor stuff that a decent coder could knock out in a couple hours here ppl.... it would make a HUGE diff in the game...
1) no more puttin "no buy" in banners... so there is more room for other stuff
2) ppl can tell right away whether it's a for real "no buy" situation or something else
3) no more rewarding no buy snatchers to harass other pet players
4) allows responsible player control over alternates
5) keeps profiles "married up" in a worry free environment
6) PREVENTS PETS GAME CYBER BULLYING
7) keeps newbs and stoopid people from making the worst play in the game
8) adds to the fame and fortune of boxing kitty as a problem solver
ok.. forget 1-7... just do it for number 8
UPDATE 4/17 = i'm going to keep adding more thoughts to this thread as time passes... during the the time this thread has "under consideration" status... more thoughts for tagged and all to consider....
One of the best ways for Tagged to increase its revenues is to sell gold to it's users... gold that can be converted to pet cash... and help a player clean up mistakes or increase value and standing in the game... whether you are a pets game purist and think it a short cut or not... (same is true with other games where gold can be converted).... it is tagged's right as a business to conduct business as they see fit... and selling cyber gold is a money maker... it's just the way it is...
So one might think Tagged would be interested in allowing users a way to increase the security of the profiles in which they could invest.... a player would almost CERTAINLY feel more CONFIDENT about purchasing gold and converting it to pet cash IF they had some way to know that his/her profile were protected by a NO BUY PADLOCK... as normally the case when a pet is bought in violation of no buy.. there results a lot of anger... frustration... and in most cases... a profile is abandonned or "DUMPED" in retaliation to the NO BUY VIOLATION...
I for one have ZERO interest in buying gold to build a profile knowing i have ZERO chance to protect and preserve when i have it placed with a friend or a good owner... i am sure there are others who would INVEST MORE WITH GOLD AND DO SO WITH CONFIDENCE were we given something as simple as this modest level of protection...
So not only is the NO BUY PETS PADLOCK a simple and easy mechanism to put in place... it would also end a lot of drama and needless hassles... close the window of opportunity for online harassment (we can block a user with privacy settings but not from buying our profiles in pets game... leaving that vulnerability open is like putting a screen door on a submarine)... AND it would be good for Tagged's profitablity by encouraging people to invest MORE in their profiles....(tagged can do this by BUILDING SECURITY AND VALUE into the profiles obviously)
From any and all perspectives... the NO BUY PETS PADLOCK is a win for everyone
well it has happened to your old pal BK.... after being split up from my GF and pets game partner 8 times in the last 5 months... i've decided the ongoing hassle just isn't worth it and will be withdrawing my primary profile from the pets game... after playing pets daily going on 3 years... it will seem odd.... and sure i'm just a little player in the grand scheme of things.... maybe one has to be 100 times my value to gain anyone's attention to the NO BUY PADLOCK idea... i've no delusions there... and yet i wonder... how many other members of tugged have withdrawn / opted out / abandonned profiles due to a hostile take over?...
in my case there is no doubt.. the person behind the chain pets and splitting up our married profiles has a long sad history on tagged for harassment, issuing threats and using pets game to intimidate... it's a shame that a friendly game can be abused by a few for such purposes.. this fellow has been deleted by tagged in the past and somehow always manages to get re-instated.... go figure
if i were a tagged admin or a programmer and responsible for creating a fun and friendly environment for this SOCIAL networking game... it would be a high priority to build in simple safe guards that prevent online cyber bullying.... if i were a suit in tagged's management structure... i would look to find ways to increase profitability and drive a design the ENCOURAGES investment in member profiles... more visits, more ad hits, more gold sales, etc... the NO BUY PETS PADLOCK just makes good business sense from all perspectives.. you'd think business savvy execs would see this simple solution incorporated ASAP...
if nothing else... the NO BUY PETS PADLOCK could also limit tagged's exposure to liability from being named co-defendant in any type of civil suit over cyber-bullying as a result of negligence... negligent means being aware that you've created a condition or environment that is conducive to unlawful or harmful activity, being aware that such coniditions exist and then failing to effect a rememdy... just FYI... new laws around this issue are being written every day... and if i were a big wheel at tagged... i'd be paying better attention and taking prompt action to limit this exposure to potential litigation.... especially since Pets Game is tagged's number one product
i've read over some of the comments posted... and i do appreciate what ppl are saying even though they may not agree.... so i'll respectfully respond to a couple of them ... i think the two biggest objections to the padlock idea are as follows....
1) one player wrote..."the object of the game is to buy and sell pets.. a padlock would be an impediment to that...."
response = if you as a pet or an owner do not wish to be or own "No Buy" pets... then the padlock would not change how you wish to play... it is an OPTION available to players that would require BOTH the owner and the pet's consent before the padlock is set... therefore if you do not wish to keep a pet then you simply do not set the padlock... same if you are an owned pet... other players can buy and sell as usual.... the padlock would only be activated by mutual consent... after those that wish do so activate the padlock... there still would be no shortage of good pets to buy and sell... simply having the option wouldn't change anyone's game except for people who buy "no buy" pets as a habit
2) another pets player wrote .. " I make it a point to buy "no buy" pets because i know they will be bought back and i make a quick profit"....
response = i cannot caution new players enough against adopting this strategy... it may work sometimes but the odds are against you... many more times than not you will be stuck with an abandonned pet that will drain its cash and migrate to a different profile.. it's a good way to throw away your pet cash... true... there are no "official" rulles against buying a "no buy" pet and there is no mechanism in the game to prevent that..... however it is consdiered in the etiquette of the game to be a "hostile" action which violates the wishes of the pet and it's owner... it's a matter of respect... when a player snatches a "no buy" pet.. there is no obligation for the person to play or maintain that profile any longer... for this reason it is not the wisest of strategies to employ... the end result is usually making people mad / causing drama...
snatching of no buy pets usually forces someone to abandon a profile that they have enjoyed and developed over time (years in some cases)... and it is a HUGE hassle for the NO BUY pet to move friends, other content, etc... not to mention that the profile loses wishers and position in other games they may be playing... snatching a "no buy" pet is the most disruptive play one can make in the game... it is received badly 99.9 percent of the time and will not make one many friends in the game that way...
some commenters have said "i buy "nobuy" pets on purpose"... but in fairness what these commenters are NOT saying is they know it's an extremely risky manuever with really no genuine desire to OWN the pet they are buying... rather they are looking for quck profit from a buy back.... this is why our "nobuy" pets wind up in dumps and on pets with insulting pics and banners, etc..... the violators of "no buy" do so usually because they know it's a big risk, utterly disruptive and rarely keep the "no buy" pet onto their primary pet page..... worse yet and often... the buyer of a no buy pet begins a campaign of bullying and treats against the pet if it does not play, if the original owner does not buy back or otherwise get sold..... if this is not how harrassment in pets game is conducted then i don't know what is...
one thing that i'm hoping TAGGED and pets players will understand is that our pet is just part of the larger profile... we have worked not only to build our pet page but our status/ranking in other games as well... we have customized our profiles and put work into building friends lists and other content.... in other words... our profiles are VALUABLE to us and tagged should help us protect that which we value... when a player snatches a no buy pet.. sometimes years of work and development go down the drain in an instant... just two clicks by someone else can make a valuable profile worthless to it's owner...
tagged should give us some way to prevent that kind of damage
i'm reading the comments and i appreciate the support.. if nothing else i hope this thread will educate others about the whole "NO BUY" concept.... there are lots of good reasons why a player would not want to have others take the pets from their page... sometimes it's a pet that is won in a key race... sometimes it's a "stacker"... sometimes and prolly most the time its a friend.... but if this thread can at least save botht the owners and buyers of "NO BUY" pets from some unnecessary drama... then i'll take what victory i can from keeping this convo going...
and i'm not blasting or flaming any one for being honest and expressing their opinion... that is what makes the discussion more valuable and meaningful.... so please bear that in mind when you read thru comments...
one other theme that runs thru the dissenting opinion...ppl are saying "ok.. if you don't want to be bought then instead of "no buy" .... you should just "opt out"... i can see where ppl think that all is fair game... and perhaps without official "rules" and a padlock mechanism... for the time being... opting out would be one way to tell other players "do not buy me"... right?... i get it.... however...i think the idea here is to ENCOURAGE ppl to play pets in a way that is fun and enjoyable... is it not better to bring people INTO the game rather than driving them OUT of the game?... buying a no buy pet tends to have the later effect...it causes people to leave the game or at least to abandon the jacked profile / pet... that's not what any of us want i don't think.. including tagged...
on the other hand... i should mention in all of this... that if one takes the time to talk to ppl you see on the playground... make friends and enjoy a social networking game together... that IF YOU ASK b4 you buy... some NO BUY pets will be the best pets you'll own... most long time players would agree they just want some small degree of control... it's a good fit when the player and owner have a mutual desire to be in the arrangement... and yes... ppl do have to be raised which requires ppl to trade and flip pets...
so here's a tip from your ole pal BK... make friends and ask first.... you'll find most pets players are a good lot for the most part... but about the fastest way i know to get on ppl's bad sides is to snatch their "no buy" pets without some previous arrangement...
it's a social networking game most of all... play nice... be good company... that's the best advice i can give ya...
was talking to a friend who does not play pets... she had opted out as many have suggested a player do... and yet even though she had opted out of pets game... as soon as she comes online then pets players buy her and flip her anyway... she has told me she has no interest in playing pets game ... finds it "distasteful" that ppl put values on others... and does not appreciate the hostility she's encountered from ppl that expect to her play pets game since they have bought her...... in other words.... opting out does not always work.... and ok... i explain to her that it is just a game... like trading baseball cards at one level and not take things personally... but here's an interesting angle on why we need the NO BUY PETS PADLOCK... i'm sure there are other members of tagged / hi5 who have no interest and would rather NOT be involved at all...
another friend and posters here have commented about winning k pets and owning non-playing profiles which are bannered "no buy" and are set free from their owners once they have built enough pet cash to do so... these profiles are obviously ownerless... bannered no buy... there is no intent to maintain or play them as a normal profile... and yet other players still buy them and expect a response and the pet to be maintained so it will sell...
therefore another option with the NO BUY PADLOCK would be if a pet is OWNERLESS for whatever reason.. either a set free has occured... an owner quits the game and ghosts... whatever... if a pet is ownerless then it could set the Padlock to lock it in as a "no buy"... any attempt to buy the pet/profile at that point would return a "Pet is unavailable for sale" condition...
this would make sure that members with no desire to play pets and that repsonsible players have a way to set a profile so that it cannot be "pulled" back into the game again...
if you really consider all the reasons for the PADLOCK... i'm hoping everyone will see how useful this feature could be and benefit everyone
just had a lil thought to throw in here.... i see pet players all the time saying "i show up everyday... i play well and buy pets.. i have good numbers in value, cash and assets.... and still.. no one will buy and raise me".... right?...
i wonder how many players like that would be helped if more established players were not required to re-invest all the profit in buiding their own profiles because as it is now... the only defense against being snatched by a "NO BUY" pet buyer is to raise your value to such an amount that it's prohibitive... and in some cases... even not then... the padlock would be one thing that allows ppl to concentrate on helping others up in the game rather than always having to play on the defense.... does that make sense?...
FURTHER UPDATES AND EXPLORATION OF OP CAN BE FOUND IN THREAD COMMENTS due to size limitations in the TOPIC / OP ...Please read on and add your KUDO if you agree... thanks
YES...NEW RANKINGS. I KNEW BEFORE HAND THE REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO BE HIGHER, TOO EASY TO MAINTAIN 10-15% CASH...HOWEVER LOL I NEVER BUY A PET THAT ONLY HAS 10-15% CASH, CASH OVER VALUE IS A BIGGER SELLER...THE BIG KNOWN CHEATERS ARE STILL IN THE RANKINGS ALONG WITH THEIR FAKE DUMMY PETS AND FAKE WISHES, LOL LESS VIEWS THAN WISHES A MINOR DETAIL OVER LOOKED BY ONE (lol) ALSO THEY SELL WISHES 10000 WISHES FOR $50...WATCH THEM BUILD UP A FAKE PET AND SELL IT THEN DRAIN THE CASH INTO ONE OF THEIR FAKE ACCOUNTS, DUMB PLAYERS GIVE THEM REAL CASH AND PROFILES LOADED IN GOAL...THEY HAVE TRIED TO TAKE MY CASH BUT IM NOT THAT DUMB...RUNNING A BUSINESS AND MAKING A VERY GOOD INCOME....NEW RANKINGS NEEDS A NEW REQUIREMENTS
HOWEVER THANK YOU TAGGED FOR THE NEW RANKINGS I LOVE THE IDEA BUT THE REQUIRMENTS ARE NOT NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO STOP THE BIG KNOWN CHEATERS
This idea its been for long time here on tagged and its final time to be listen by Tagged.
One thing is clear if you block some one it means you don't want any contact with that person what it means you don't want to be bought in the pets game. So because many of us only play pets game we all need this issue to be listen by tagged and this option to be added as soon as possible
there are 2 more topic like this and 1 more what is similar to all this is called PADLOCK
So why now because of the reason we all get frustrated from some players behavior well known NO BUY buyers like Bluedan and his 50 accounts
and most important because of the people who been busting out our key runs with that crazy program...
I hope tagged will listen to us and I hope you will go here up left corner and give KUDOS to this and to other 3 over there
Love & Respect (for one who deserve it)
Hello,was thinking what if tagged will charge us with a small fee for keeping SL here???? I will pay a small amount and many others will just so not to lose everything we got in this game,we invested so much time and money,please think about this ideea tagged !!!
As is now blocking a user does not stop them from buying you or harrassing you, sure no more messages yet they still can get to you by buying you in pets, please make it so if a person is blocked they cannot buy you, thank you!! please give kudos if you agree with me on this
If we can't be No Buys then we don't need to buy Gold...If all No Buys stop buying gold that will get tagged attention...We can do something about a No Buys Rights as past and future gold buyers, Vip's etc...THINK if you are a No Buy and cheaters keep buying you and you want to be COV, then buying gold is really paying to be bought
There have been many complaints filed with a lot of people not receiving their GOLD after doing the following:
Emailing RadiumOne directly at email@example.com and having to jump through hoops and still not receiving the gold as via their offer.
When a ticket is submitted to Tagged on these issues as I have seen many have done so with the complaints on the forums, it seems that there is favorable amount of people still not getting their GOLD.
Can tagged solicit for another more reputable Third Party to offer GOLD, or can Tagged just be the one to make the offers to Earn Gold?
It would be less aggravating for everyone that is having the same problems with RadiumOne as being the Third Party for Earning Gold.
This is a Petition to ask Tagged to put a block button in place to prevent players from being bought when they do not want to be....
TAGGED IF YOU ALLOW PLAYERS THE OPTION TO BLOCK FRIENDS OR MESSAGES, WHY CAN'T YOU INSTALL A BLOCK BUTTON TO PREVENT US FROM BEING BOUGHT IF WE DON'T WANT TO BE BOUGHT BY SOMEONE?
I would like to be able change the position of my Pets to give myself the best chance at selling them.Sometimes I make a bad purchase and it is stuck there on the front page.Prospective buyers get bored looking through the pages, so I would like to be able to position the first fifty or even the first twenty.Thank you for this wonderful game.
I would like to see Tagged give Gold every month and or make a program for the BIG SPENDERS here on the tagged pets game. There are a lot of us that invest hundreds and possibly thousands a month for gold. The VIP program is great for those who want to spend 20 bucks a month and receive the VIP emblem, 25,000 in gold and who's viewing you. But for all of us that spend the hundreds of dollars a month would like to see a BIGGER and GREATER Incentive "GOLD"/PROGRAM for us. I'm sure there are many who would agree with me on this matter. We spend our hard earned money or even our kids inheritance on the game we enjoy to play.
Tagged, you must act on this. Either delete profiles of No Buy pet players or give them the No Buy padlock. There really is only 2 solutions to this. The pets game is just turning into grief for players. I am a long time player, even though my pet stats say 150 days in a row, missed days signing in. I am sick of this! I also do not understand how come if a person is blocked from messaging you that they can still get to you in the games. That is wrong too Tagged and you know it is. Do something Tagged, to stop this grief going around.
Please give Kudos to this no matter which way you feel about it. If you feel Tagged needs to do something, please give Kudos to this topic and reply with your point of view on this, Thank You!!
Tagged there are some things you can do to resolve this...
1. Edit your code and put in "if" statements not allowing anyone to put No Buy, N/B etc... into their display names.
(also be a good idea to deny in the code display names that are namecalling, rude and offensive too!)
2. Give No Buy pet players the padlock at very high cost (at least $150) so everyone wont padlock themselves.
3. Start deleting the abusive No Buy pet players.
4. Publicly announce again that everyone can be bought! (Even though we already know this because everyone who plays the pets game has a buy button underneath them)
Added this here too... ---> 5. Add the blocking a user feature properly making it so if an individual who has been blocked (abusive through messaging) that the blocked person cannot buy you in pets. A person ought to not have to stop playing because someone ended up being abusive towards them and the abuser is buying them.
---> After some thought on this, the only way this can be abused is by blocking every other single pet player out there and that is impossible to do! This has nothing to do with not wanting to be bought by just anyone, This has nothing to do with the padlock proposed. it has something to do with not wanting to have someone own you that you blocked because that person became abusive. Again... Add the blocking a user feature properly making it so if an individual who has been blocked (abusive through messaging) that the blocked person cannot buy you in pets.
And so forth... there are ways to stop the abuse and grief and I can think of even more ideas, for now will leave it at this. Which way are you going to decide Tagged?
And I use to accept all friend requests. I use to allow everyone to message me.
If you do not want to be abused or be a part of the grief/drama going around, add only just a few friends and in your settings, allow only friends to message you. So everyone who wants to can't harass or abuse you!
--->We all like to make new friends and meet people on Tagged yet not allowing new people or everyone to message you is the only way to go right now until Tagged takes some action on this.
Here is how I see it:
First off I disagree with the Padlock idea, I have been on another game trying to be like tagged and they have the padlock on their profiles. It amazes me that when you search for a pet run EVERYONE HAS A PADLOCK! There is no one to buy, so the game is boring and i left.
So doing this PADLOCK would ruin the game and everyone will complain that they can't find pet runs or pets to buy. Is this truely what you want?
SOLUTION: TAGGED CAN UPGRADE THE BLOCK BUTTON FEATURE TO ALSO INCLUDE THE PETS PAGE TO WHERE THE PERSON WHO BLOCKED SOMEONE CANNOT BUY THEM BUT REVIEW THE PETS PAGE TO BUY PETS.
This way there is No type of communication or harassment from a person you blocked....
THIS UPGRADED BLOCK FEATURE CAN ONLY BE USED WHEN A PERSON HAS BEEN IN CONTACT WITH YOU AND YOU WANT THEM BLOCKED. THEY MAY COME TO YOUR PAGE IF A PET OF YOURS IS SEEN ON A RUN BUT YOUR INFORMATION/PIC ON THE PETS PAGE IS BLOCKED FROM THEM TO SEE, BUT THEY CAN STILL BUY YOUR PETS AND NOT YOU..
Are you ever going to update the Pets Achievement levels since over a year ago? The highest ranked player is almost on the Nonillion level in assets ($795 Octillion), which is 10 million times greater than the highest achievement level ($100 Sextillion) which Pets has set up now. This game is becoming stagnant and unchallenging when we have no new levels to reach.
I don't need anymore chips as I have earned those. Even if the amount was low like 500 why can't we be rewarded with gold? If the amounts are low and maybe get a little higher as we progress through the levels I do not see why Tagged cannot still make money with people buying gold and maybe more players would buy it out of appreciation of getting it as a reward for moving especially to the higher levels. Also when they get another 5 or more levels they can be rewarded with a little more gold on up the line.
I THINK TAGGED SHOULD ADD A FILTER IN THE BROWSE SECTION OF PETS TO STATE
"ACTIVITY OF PETS" AND HAVE A DROP DOWN TO STATE WITHIN IT:
2. ACTIVE A WEEK AGO
3. ACTIVE 2 WEEKS AGO
4. ACTIVE OVER A MONTH AGO
5. ACTIVE OVER 3 MONTHS AGO
OR SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE...
JUST SOMETHING TO SIMPLIFY THE SEARCHES FOR BUYING ACTIVE PETS. INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH EVERY PAGE SEARCHING....
