      I don't like the Spinners.

      No, not the musical group. The people who just stand in one place and spin for hours at a time; sometimes all day long, they're there from the time I get up in the morning and still in the same place when I go to bed at night; sometimes they're still there the next morning.

      I used to just ignore them and go on my way. But I'm getting to the point in my pet collecting where I'm finding it difficult to randomly find people to hatch with who have a pet I don't already have. And when I do, its usually one of the spinners, who ignore my request to lend their pet. I have had a few spinners who responded, sometimes after a bit of a delay, so I want to at least ask. But its very frustrating to stand there and wait for an answer that never comes. The least the spinners could do is have the courtesy to go outside the hatchery to spin (And I do see a lot of spinners there) so that I will know not to even bother asking.

      Further, I usually avoid the overcrowded realms like Ambrose, Balestrom and Bartleby, etc. because the overloaded server slows down the game. But I have to go where the people are to find someone with whom to hatch, and in the evening those overcrowded realms are often Full and I can't go to them when I'm realm-hopping looking for a pet I don't have.

      I understand WHY they do it - so they don't have to go through the hassle of logging out and then back in every time they have to take a break, or so that they can be sure of staying in the same realm and don't have to worry about getting put in a different realm if its full when they log back in.

      So I understand WHY they do it, I just don't understand why they are ALLOWED to do it. Me, I take a short break to use the head or grab a quick snack, and when I come back just a few minutes later I've been "Disconnected due to Inactivity." They are AFK for hours, causing the realm to be full, and that's OK?

      Edit: You can call it what you will, I call it exploiting a glitch.

      Anyone else have a pet peeve about what other players do that they'd like to get off their chest?

      Re: I don't like the Spinners.

      I'd say I used to for the same exact reason back in the day when hatching pets through the hatchery was the main thing (pre-kiosk). And this was even considering the folks that simply didn't want to hatch with me in the first place, even worse they were both. Actually pretty often it was lol But not anymore because honestly, if I wanted to hatch, I would just ask my friends and this would work out. But it's not often I want a hatch for something since I'm laazzzzzzzzzyyyyyy.

      I usually ignore spinners too, their presence alone doesn't really do anything ultimately. Like they're just there and they're not trying to mess with anybody in any way. And sometimes, if they have friendly players turned on, they're actually helpful as I can teleport to their location through the friendly players tab rather than running around. Like the squatters in the bazaar, it's been a long time since I've gone through Ravenwood, the Commons, and the Shopping District because I can just port to my Ravenwood Dorm and teleport straight to a Bazaar squatter with Friendly Players turned on.

      The only thing that fascinates me is well... how do they do it in the first place. I mean like everytime I try to go to a different tab on my computer or exit the W101 screen in any way, I stop spinning and thus I'm vulnerable to being disconnected by inactivity. And like how does that not completely burn away their computer to keep a game running for hours on end. If anything, it would be easier for me to do anything else on my computer without the game running because then everything else is faster.

      At the end of the day, I don't really care about things I don't need to care about or be concerned/worry about things I really don't need to worry about. Something peace of mind something something

      Before they moved the arena, you could afk there all day standing still. Now there is just the Bazaar.

      Re: I don't like the Spinners.

      Spinners in the bazaar are just mildly distracting to me, as I'm always focusing on searches. Speaking of which, I'm not sure why spinning has persisted there, since simply staying in the bazaar interface will keep you logged in. (Not that I've ever done it for hours!)

      I'll sometimes switch realms to avoid spinners in other areas of the game.

      Spinners don't really bother me, since I am almost always trying to get tasks done and that is where my focus is, I barely see them. I can certainly see how the same one being in the same place time after time could get a bit creepy.

      What bothers me is when I get dumped in a Crowded Realm in The Commons and I have to see all of the trash talk get loaded in my chat box. Players who have nothing better to do than stand in The Commons making fun of someone else or begging for packs or membership like that irks me. I can't wait to harvest a garden or something to make that text go away.

      They may not know that it keeps them logged in. Honestly, I didn't know it until now. If I want to spin my wizard I try to do it off in a corner somewhere, but it's usually out in the spiral.

      The only spinners that bug me are the ones that do it right on sigils or right where a teleporter drops you in an area. Before they banned mounts in the pet pavilion people would spin on the game sigils on the HUGE mounts.

      hahaha I happen to be a spinner. But not all the time, only when I have to go do something like drop off my kids at school or make coffee and I really can't be bothered to log off and load the game again.
      If you have to ask, youíll never know. If you know, you need only ask.

      If you must, you must. But please do everyone else a favor and

      -Please don't stand ON the pet minigame sigil. When we click on the sigil its because we want to play the game, not to inspect you.

      -And please don't spin in the hatchery itself. Take it outside, so we know not to bother asking you for a lend.

      Thank you. Sadly, there are a lot of players who are not so considerate of their fellow players.
