Basically here's my hot take lmao.....
Too often I browse the characters in search of free characters, only for people to slap that label on a character thats UFT/S. Its. So. Annoying! It's dishonest and clogs the tag.
A suggestion would to be to prevent people from marking characters as 'free' if theyre already marked in any other sale category, because seriously. It's really ridiculous at this point, and SO annoying to have to sort through tons of characters that aren't even FREE. If I'm looking for characters, I don't want to have to continue to sort through ones that aren't free. (If you do this please consider stopping!)
+1. I look for free characters sometimes, and it always bugs me when characters are listed as free, only for me to go to the character page and have it say that the owner is looking for usd or DeviantArt points or something.
+1 to infinity, its just misleading and causes unnecessary conflict when people ask if a chara is free and get an angry response of "UM NO?? THEY'RE TRADE/60$/OTA ONLY!!!"
like ghgg there's.. other options for you to list your charas under too? just use the offer / ota option if you're unsure of what you want them to go for
I have a semi-completed blocklist of users who are abusing this feature.
This blocklist goes up to page 17 of characters marked as freebies.
This blocklist is also SUPER. DUPER. LONG.
I will not be using it myself, but it is here for those who do need it.
If your name is on this list and you feel it has been put her unrightfully so, message me and I will take it off!
Without further ado, the block list.
Why are there so many people doing this? It's unfair to those who are looking for free characters and overall false advertising and sneaky. :/
