Discouraged

Once again I clicked on a pattern to find it was 200 gcs. WHY... it wasn't even a good patten.  I thought this was suppose to be a teaching site?  It's very discouraging.

Some people think quite highly of their uploads.  There was another site I joined like this, set up with the same bbs system.  I left after a day because it was just too hard to get started in it.  Here, most of the time you can comment on stuff and get what you want.  There it was free stuff for newbs (mostly crap), and the other things you had to really work to get.  And it took forever to get just one point.  so I left.  Anyway, digressing there...

They had this rule.  NO pattern could be more than 50.  No free pattern found online could be more than 5.  That part was nice.  But the site made you work hard to get anything.

I don't think they think highly of their uploads, I think they are greedy. We work hard for our gold coins no matter what.  Post time 2017-6-10 22:28
And the two free charts I wanted were only available to the third tier and above. Free was supposed to be for newbs! =P  Post time 2016-12-28 00:42
I went back yesterday to see if I could understand stuff better. I couldn't comment on anything I could download cause those threads were too old, I couldn't reply to my OWN threads for the same.  Post time 2016-12-28 00:40
Been there, done that! Unfortunately the more popular they got the harder it became to earn gc. Just not worth it anymore ya know?  Post time 2016-12-28 00:30
It was all pink! Got credits to buy things fast, but was too low level to get anything. =P  Post time 2016-12-23 12:50
you were on the pink site! You wouldn't have liked it there:)  Post time 2016-12-23 08:10

It is quite unfortunate that there is no limit on the amount of gc charged. Because of that it is easy for members to over charge and in the end both the member posting and the member that desires it lose out which is sad. I always found that charging a more reasonable price for whatever I post will actually make more gc down the line.

Of course, there is the fact that I have enough patterns for things to last several lifetimes so what I'm doing getting more is insanity anyway.

I have more patterns than I could stitch in several lifetimes too :) But collecting patterns is a hobby in itself LOL  Post time 2016-12-28 03:07

200 for one pattern is too high ! I have a collection for patterns I want that are too expensive. I want one that is 200 for the pattern and another 120 to download because it is in 4 parts. I just refuse to spend that much for a basic pattern.

I totally agree with you. what pattern is it?  Post time 2017-6-10 22:29

I saw a 300g peacock cross-stitch one a couple days ago.  I actually wanted it, but there was no way I wanted to pay that much.  Eh, I have plenty to do!  I'll keep my 300g.

I wanted to make a Harry Potter for my grand daughter. Found a book but it is 450 for the chart and 270 to download it because it is in 9 small parts. So that's 720 GCs !! why??

I agree, there should be some kind of limit. I don't understand why people are so greedy.  Post time 2016-12-24 07:30
