Exactly why you shouldn’t be able to over plant your own projects

First of all, not everyone has access to this and second, why do we need a balanced like to plants ratio?

Just remove the ability to plant yourself

no offense but what does that prove?

That he is a scammer.

He has 141 plants.

Each plant is uhh 0.50.

He has 141 x 0.5 which is uhh 70 bucks around. Why spend that much??

True, but what if they spent it on 200 seeds ($9.99 each)?

you shouldn’t be able to plant yourself

Ik people may be abuzing the plant system, and its not the best thing to do, but it’ll happen no matter what. If you remove the ability to plant yourself, they can just make another account, get seeds on that one, and plant their other account.
With a system like this, there’s so many loopholes. And there’s no real way to stop them. The seeds are another way for THT to get money, and while it may not be fair to everyone with the tabs n all, removing the seeds altogether isn’t the best option for them, nor is putting into strict limitation on them… Taking down those tabs might be, but that won’t stop people from planting, y’know?

It’s less of a bug and more of an issue with the “misuse” of the tabs/planting abilities, and there’s already tons of topics on that.

Besides, calling one person out like that isn’t nice and isn’t fair to them, regardless of what they may or may not be doing. Just be mindful of that too :))

maybe tht should just make a general announcement like 'hey we know this is super exciting but plz don’t abuse it" and take down top gardens and most planted and just leave it at that?

4 Likes

cause I love seeds and I wanna see stickers added, as well as more badges and such, and gifting seeds, but I think the top gardens and top planted are just motivation to exploit.

We shouldn’t be able to plant ourselves or plant the same project twice

Why do you even need a leaderboard. They aren’t of any use at all
