    Default Note: Housing Directory Votes Only Last 30 Days



    Some may have noticed that votes on the recently released Housing Directory have been disappearing. First thing is first: It is not a bug. There is an explanation for that, which Free Realms Community Manager Pex has mentioned on the offiicial forums:

    "I asked the Dev team about this and currently the votes are not meant to be permanent. The votes are meant to expire after 30 days. Since the directory launched on Dec 16th, we're starting to see those early votes drop off.This is to prevent a few houses from permanently being at the top of the charts even if people stop visiting it or the player who made the house leaves the game. There needs to be some sort of decay on votes to make sure the list stays fresh.Yes, this should be conveyed to the players somehow so they know the votes are those cast in

    I don't have a problem with vote decay, but I feel that 30 days is a rather short time frame. I think members would be more understanding of this policy if they decay period could be extended to 90 days.

    The main issue I see with voting is that you have to remove your house from the directory to make any changes, resulting in a loss of all votes gained to that point. I guess if all votes over 30 days old will expire anyway, than this will be less of an issue.

    SOE is totally right but like Layla said, isn't 30 days a little too short?

    Wow... Everyone took the words out of My mouth XD But it's true.. It makes it more fair to newer builders and to older builders... Hahaha Although I wish you could decorate with the house in the housing directory.

    I agree with Layla! 30 days seems a little short.. but the concept is a good idea to keep those who need to update their houses in the voting loop, etc.

    30 days is rather short... I would go from 60 to 90 days. But I had been annoyed with the idea of not being able to decorate while it was in the Directory, and this does give people a chance to decorate!
