    Default The sad thing about 'Rich People'

    I'm re writing this is there are a lot of misunderstandings going around.
    First of all, my main point is,I understand that people ignore others due to business.I totally
    agree with them doing so.What I do not agree to is the fact that some people start ignoring
    the public after getting 100 dls as they think they are above the lower echelons.

    There SerhanYoshi. Better?

    You're not allowed to single out people on the forums

    You won't actually know how much spam they get from 'newbies' on their account, unless you are on the account itself.
    I was on my account (SerhanYoshi), I barely get any spam. But, as soon I logged on my friends account, Coorect (Owner of 3VEND), I get A LOT of spammy messages. Especially, with vending world's, they get messages like 'sell rsp', 'omg owner', 'owner plz restock' etc.
    After a while, they get used to it and start 'ignoring' the messages as they are annoying.

    I agree with most of your points, but those factors have to be considered to.

    I know your feeling and yes it's really hard to replay to people when to much spam and sometimes it when we AFK we don't see chat or anything and not all rich peeps is like that there are some that is nice so stop talking like they don't care.

    This is so true. Some of the rich do not care about people poorer than them. They just want to get richer.

    It gets annoying after awhile. Even if I'm alone in a world with some random person chasing me around, I tend to ignore them, because they'll stereotypically beg for an add or donation. There's no real obligation to talk to anyone, whether you're rich or not, and maybe if they don't want to be social, they'll just ignore you. Maybe in a game of 50k there's 500 people that truly would make great friends, but you'll more likely than not never meet them or talk to them.

    Some people need to learn to suck it up. They ignore you, so what? It's not the end of the world. You don't need to make them the bad guy since you didn't get what you wanted.

    I swear there are many reasons why they don't hang out with random people. One. They are ignorant little bastards who jeers at your opinions. Two, I am sure you would rather talk to a friend than to a stranger. Some people just sickens me which is why I mainly talk to friends and forumers. "Rich" people get a lot of messages like Donate to them from the public btw

    I am a vend shop owner too. Running a vend shop is stressful. But if people kept asking to the owner some questions, it's really annoying. That's why she won't reply to you.

    I own SHOPN, you must've heard of it somewhere. Wouldn't call myself rich, but by some terms i might be. I do try to reply everyone who talks to me, I've held a conversation with 5 people simultaneously, all whom i've never met before. It's just that nowadays I afk or don't reply at all because all i get are:

    "change price pls"
    "this cheap?"
    "noob shop lol"
    "noob owner" [after seeing me floating on clouds with clothes more than their total worth]
    "owner don8 pls"
    "tarde"
    "owner restock"
    "donate plz"
    "can i have wl pls"
    "expensive shop"

    whilst continuously being bombarded with "sell rsp 70wls" "sell rsp 70wls" "sell rsp 70wls" "sell rsp 70wls" "sell rsp 70wls"

    Do you think I, or we would want to reply? There's this once I got a noob who asked me how to add and trade, I spent an hour teaching him how to play. Occasionally people come in ignoring my shop, my wls, everything but the fact that I'm a sociable player. And I spend minutes or hours talking to them. You think we don't want to reply to everyone? It's not easy and not everyone wants to spend time socialising in the first place, everyone's too caught up making money that doesn't matter in the end anyway.

    Rich or poor, anyone has a right to choose who to talk to. And if Growtopia is simply about socialising I wouldn't have bothered playing and just go find some social media that will cater to such need.

    Let me ask you this, why is it so sad or bothersome that people on top ignores you? Is it going to affect you negatively? Is it illegal? Isn't it normal not to interact much with people you're not close with?

    You don't know how it feels like to be showered with friend requests knowing that most of these people just want to use you. Only a few will be true to you so you can't blame the "rich/famous" if they're careful with the people they want to interact with.

    In my case, I just really don't want to be bothered especially when I'm almost always busy. Socialising is the least of my priority, and it's my choice to do so.

    No offense, but it's kinda like real life. Rich people interact with other rich people, they don't interact with poor people. It's their choice to speak with specific players, and you can't expect them to reply to everyone in the world am I right? Even if there are less people in their world, then they're just AFK or don't wish to speak to players. Remember, you can't control people's actions, everyone has the right to do his/her own things.

    This is a GAME, not social medias like Facebook, Twitter, Insta etc. If you wish to interact, you could just find people in those medias.

    It's not important whether people interact with you or not. If they don't, they don't. If they do, they do. There's not much else to it.

    Do you know (CENSORED)? She's the owner of (CENSORED). When vending machines were 'new', and when (CENSORED) was just opening, I was one of the

    There,SerhanYoshi. Better?
    Like Deadpool and DanielDD and IcyFrost (Bretz is not a snob)

    (Master snob skrubs)
    no, mineplox, you must understand. this game is for making friends and stuff.
    Snobs who ignore everybody around them shouldn't be accepted.
    I know a guy in GREEVIL and TENGHSUENFARM, there is this sort of breaking area — Deadpool and the other 2-3 admins, 2 of the admins are kind of wealthy, while Deadpool is very very rich, but the players help the other admin break even when he whips out his legendary dragon.

    I'm just speaking for myself right now (I'm luckily not crazy famous, like some people), but I own a world that brings a decent amount of messages every day and I almost always ignore them all. Mainly because it's just stupid spam messages or stuff that I have anwsered in bulletin boards in the world itself (if only the asker would bother to check...). I do although try to answer questions/messages from people, who seem reasonable. Can't although imagine what it's like for insanely well known people.

    My point is, these 'rich people' usually ignore your messages for a reason, or there's just too much to handle and they want some peace too.
    There are of course those people out there, who you described, too.

    I don't think it's that simple. Some one may choose not to talk to random people for a different reason other than them thinking your to poor and they are to good to talk to you.

    When you are rich people have high expectations of you all the sudden. They become very demanding. People look at you like an all day charity and walking book of growtopia knowledge that must always be on call to drop what ever going on and whoever they are talking to just to meet the expectations of some one that just pops in.

    I don't see rich people rolling into other people's worlds with a list of demands expecting you to fullfil them. It's actually the other way around. People are always coming at them with a list of demands or questions. If you understood that you would be one step closer to understanding them and maybe they would notice you giving them a little respect and I am sure at that point they could talk to you .

    You might think it's fun being popular with everybody wanting to know you but it's hard to carry on 5 conversations at once plus manage private messages on top of that.

    Now I myself don't think rich people should ignore the new players that look up to them but after getting a taste of wealth an popularity I can understand why they choose to not talk to people.

    There are a lot of players that are not wealthy that are great people and fun to talk to. Your overlooking the same people your accusing others of overlooking....

    I've known a few rich people that are about as interesting as a funeral. I don't think your missing out.

    Once people stop becoming so concerned with other people's wealth Growtopia will be a better experience for us all.

    People focus on whoever's a step ahead of them constantly at their heels and it's not because of who they are, it's because they want what they have. I happen to look past a person's wealth and try to get to know a person and you should too....
