In earlier days a Gift Born creature was a creature that was gotten only and only if someone gifted enough people. This resulted in gifting behaviour that wasn't quite so nice. I.e., gifting is supposed to be such that you give someone else something, because you want to give that to said person. The Gift Borns caused it that gifting started to feel like gifting to get the Gift Born, that is, to gain something yourself instead of giving unto others. This is why there is not a creature, a Gift Born, that is rewarded based on how many people anyone gifts or how many gifts they give. :italian: Creatures line the House Muris, gotten under the tree are a gift from the MS team to everyone regardless of their gifting behaviour. ^_^

There was also a problem with people setting up side accounts only to get the gift borns, then after the event, "gifting" the gift born to themself to sell.

It's nice to hear a clarification that the gifts from MS staff aren't the same as giftborns. I was always confused on that myself, thanks for explaining, everyone. Shame it had to be ruined. D:

Anyway, Winter Solstice and the Halloween event are always my favorites. If anyone here wants to look in my Others and Holiday Sales tabs and pick out a few things as a pre-gift of what they're missing, feel free. Just PM me.


What happened? I don't remember why GBs stopped being a thing...

In addition to what others have said, people would, and still do, grab any common they can out of the stream and stuff people's stockings with them, all so they can get their quota, neither caring about stopping others from gifting to people's wishlists, nor clogging up people's trees and Keeps with something they probably had a dozen of. And still others would defend the behavior. Which is why I have a few ppl on my ignore list, tbh.

In fact, I've gotten to the point I'll PM folks to trade them stuff on their lists, all so I don't clog up a tree and they can hopefully have a better chance of stuff they want. Though most of us are happy just to get gifts, of course.

So, as I said, thanks to some folks ruining it for everyone.

Ah, well. The gifting remains AND the MS staff gift themselves, so the best parts still remain. Six of one, half dozen of the other now, really.

Anyone can look in my Keep and ask for bred babies of past creatures for free. I just ask that you don't have one before you ask. I don't do shards, but you can borrow donations.

I totally agree, it was the last years not funny, if you made a wish list, to help people you like and they like you to find anything you like to gift you and you gift them back. you are fulled with 25 gift-boxes and if you open them, the halb boxes are random stream stuff you don't need/want/already have over 100~200 each etc i don't know why people gift random stream stuff away instead of to freeze them. i also see this point as a scam, it would be very great, if i could add them to a blacklist and they wont be able to gift me something in the future then. i have someone who gift me each years random stream stuff and i'll block this person to gift me something more in the future :orly:
