What: Gifting Game / 50k Give/Get http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/forga/1382096
Why: Did not read game rules, cluttered game thread, refused to hold up their end and give me a gift while still receiving gifts from others.
When: July 28th to July 30th
This revolves around the following forum game: http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/forga/1382096 Most specifically, Rule #4. “Please edit your claim in a timely manner. Don’t post and then leave for two hours, that’s just being rude.”
On page 1436, I was claimed in the game by user Noralu. At the bottom of the same page, I asked if they’d forgotten about me because it had been a few hours and I had no gift still. Noralu asked me to message them and I did so.
At that point, they informed me that they would “try to get your gift tomorrow”. Which, itself, is far, far beyond what the rules allow for.
After over a day passed…
I then sent them a more in-depth message about what was expected of them by participating in this game.
After still more PMs of them whining about being able to give me something “soon”, they sent me this PM: “And I’m trying to earn more money to gift you something and still have a bit left over.”
The point of the game thread is to have items or funds on hand and immediately [ie: in under 1-2 hours] buy and gift any item or items on the site valued at 50,000T or above. This person has ended up getting multiple gifts from other players in the thread [because they kept trying to respond to me in-thread, messing up the game itself as a whole] all while never sending one single thing to me. This has been a massive frustration and the person even said to me in another PM that they never even read the rules for the game, which only adds to my anger.
They’re now sending me message after message after message begging me not to contact FR because of this, which is now bordering on spam and harassment.
After yet more whining messages, Noralu tried to give me the gift they’d spent almost 44 hours “trying to get” for me. And it was a pile of valueless feathers, I kid you not. Feathers. When I was owed a gift worth no less than 50,000T.
The owner/creator of the game told me that FR mods directed them to stay out of players’ tiffs and to have them a) work it out between themselves [which obviously wasn’t working here…], or b) take it to FR Staff. Which I’ve done and am awaiting a response from. The thread’s owner/creator also gave me 50,000T out of their own pocket to make up for Noralu’s refusal to hold up their end of things.
