Don't quote the OP pl0xDear all beggars, or other similar... creatures,Recently begging has been on a rise again. And it's annoying. And we don't like it. At all. Well, most of us. Today I'm going to let you into some amazing market secrets, as well as a few tips about why you shouldn't beg.Now before I start, let me just make something clear. I personally define begging as a few things. Asking repeatedly in chat for "donations for your new megamall" is begging. Asking once, although a bit iffy, isn't. Neither's have a little donation chest at your res, sitting their for passers by to donate to. Asking for "free items to help you build your next project" repeatedly in chat is too, but advertising your project on a thread in Community Creations and accepting donations isn't. There's a subtle difference. Now, to demonstrate a point, I'm going to let you inside a dark land, known as my /tells. Here's a little snippet of one earlier:W nameremoved: wanna be friendsW JackBiggin: I'm friends with everyone on EMC. W nameremoved: so pls can u help need red woolW JackBiggin: Try /v mystul W nameremoved: dont have shearsW JackBiggin: They're sold there W JackBiggin: And at 405W nameremoved: dont have moneyW JackBiggin: Vote for free rupees - empire.us/rupeesW nameremoved: nahW JackBiggin: Then don't come begging Did you spot the signs of begging? Well here's a few:W nameremoved: so pls can u help need red woolInnocent enough question. Sure, it comes across as a bit beggy so it could be interpreted in either way. If it'd been repeated, then yeah, maybe it would be begging. W nameremoved: dont have moneyW JackBiggin: Vote for free rupees - empire.us/rupeesW nameremoved: nahHowever this is showing that you're a beggar. You'd rather just leech off the work of others instead of earn things yourself. If you're not willing to do a job that you're offered, then you have absolutely no right to expect things from other people for free..So, here's that amazing market secret I agreed to tell you: if you beg, or even mention wanting donations in chat, then I'm much much much less likely to donate. However, if I see you've built a cool thing, and I see a donation chest on your res, then I will more than happily throw a few rupees your way.Begging is losing you rupees, not earning them! During the time you could spend mining, grinding, farming, or however else people earn rupees now-a-days, you're just sitting in chat, being a pain and annoying others.See all those rich people? AlexChance, Todd_Vinton, IcecreamCow Faithcaster? They earned their way up there - they didn't beg.Earning will make you a fortune. Begging will make you peanuts.9. Thou Shalt Not Be a Pain In The ChatDo not beg for items or residence permissions, and do not expect the staff or other players to answer all your questions; do not be demanding; do not ask to become a moderator, do not ask to be teleported, and do not advertise other servers in the chat. If you come on the server just to advertize another server you will be banned permanently without warning.
