Possible Solutions to Problems

Cinderella

If the only problem that everyone is having is with the bot, then it would be less complicated, but there are many issues that are happening in this game. Bots are just one of them.

Some solutions that I thought about:
Start the game over - Commend those that are where they are now. Write it down.

Eliminate the agencies - We would all work for Ben's Agency. We would be individual detectives in the agency each having our own page with our name and having it just to store gifts for ourselves and show the treasure that we won.

- This would eliminate boosting of any detectives.
- This would eliminate going into another detective agency just to help out for a treasure hunt.
- This would eliminate someone giving you extra money. You have so much money, so if you got an FA to pay off, you are on your own.
- The treasure hunts would be individual. - That way each individual would take responsibility for winning their own treasure hunts. More treasure hunts would have to be offered, but also you probably with have to compete with someone else, which is what the game is for anyway.
-If someone had more than I detective then that detective would be in an individual agency where cases could not be taken back and forth to boost, to give more money, to give gifts.
- It would make on less likely to cheat since they are not promoting their members in their agency.
- Ben at times could offer a group treasure hunts. You could sign up with other detectives that you would like to participate with.
- No need for case files, which I do love the case files, but this would mean that you do cases immediately or let them sit and lose time. This would not allow unsubscribed members and advantage.

I am not the creator of the game. Ben has a wonderful game, but it is taken advantage of and I know that Ben is a very busy man, and we could have this in place until these problems can be resolved with Ben's expertise. It would also give everyone a fresh new start.

Just some suggestions.

I am not a young person and I can't do as many games as the younger people as I am not fast enough, so that does put me at a disadvantage. With Cinderella I struggled to get where I was at. I was on alot. I practically lived on the site. I would do all nighters. I could not do a case while chatting with someone.

I am also left-handed and I use the mouse with my right hand because when I learned to type at a community college, the stations were set up for right handed people. But it is advantageous because I can write while I do use the mouse with my right hand.

A friend is a friend is a friend. It is nice to discuss things without someone disliking someone. We are all different and individuals so if you lose someone as your friend then I guess they were not a friend to begin with.

But I think that you are right. Someone is going to find ways to get around everything.

So may the games continue....

@ Joseph, spit it out, what are you trying to say. If it is for only one person, please do it in a pm or e-mail. It is very annoying. Every one can speak different languages, but they refain.

Whatever Joseph, I am too busy to play this type of a game. It is very nice that you can speak and write in several languages.

That's his native language. He uses it every day like I use Finnish. For us, as for many others here too, English is a foreign language, and really can't express our thoughts properly. So no game, but real life.

@Minick, I am at a disadvantage then as I can only speak and write English. So I guess basically it is meant for those that can understand what he is trying to say. I can look up some French or other words, but I am having difficulty trying to figure out what he is trying to say.

I am quite surprised because when Joseph would chat with me before, it never seemed like he had trouble expressing himself. So I will just think that this message is not for me and skip over it.

Thanks for explaining this to me.

You're welcome, Veronica. :)

Learning other languages and cultures is very useful and broadening. If you have a chance, do try it. The world expressed in two different languages is never the same. The problem with using a foreign language is that you tend to use it with the mindset of your own language, and hence what you try to express with it is not exactly what a native would think you express. As a native speaker, you have an advantage with other native speakers, because you are familiar with the mindset, but disadvantaged with a non-native speaker. And vice versa. The sad thing about it is that the speakers don't usually realise it themselves.
