    At the moment, the Messages (PM) section is a bit hard to get to - even if you get a notification that you got a new PM, there isn't a one-click way to view the message; you need to travel through the Account > Messages menu option. It would be nice if there was an button/icon around the chat window that linked to the Messages section in a single click. Maybe positioned next to the Friends button at the top of the chat section? And a notification icon (like a red dot) for unread messages on the button/icon would be a nice quality of life enhancement too, since it's rather easy to miss unread messages right now.

    A world without money

    Allright fellas. This is a topic that is running through my head for a really long time. I even brought it to chat recently. Important: Please only participate on this topic and discussion if you fully read my text and kind of understand the basics. This is highly controversial, politic, ethic and philosophical. Don't ruin it, thats the only thing I'm asking you for! Focus on the text, accept what I say, even imagine it. Thats necessary! I want to take you on a journey... In our modern world we life, walk, work and even dream. But everything is related to the fact that money rules you. Money defines who you are and what kind of privileges you get. The middle-class/working class/most of you work for a living. Literally. You get up everyday in the morning, do a "9 to 5" job. Some of us even get enough money to life and buy some cool stuff or going to a restaurant more than one time in a month. We accept that fact, because we work hard to do so. But there are also people who can't work or are unemployed. They have no opportunity on spending money on stuff you just don't need. But there are also wealthy people. They will also have the best food and drinks. Are healthy to the end. Have nice and expensive vacations with everything you can imagine. Not just two weeks with limited money. Some of us will never achieve such a status. You get born into one of these three classes and have a tough time to become more. Usually you just do the same as your parents did. The middle-class will never really worry about it. Never complain that a wealthy person probably have no limitations on anything. Because with money you can buy everything. The middle-class dreams of being wealthy. No worries about the next month or even day. Not keeping an eye on the cost of a product in the grocery store. The lower-class has some more trouble. I'm in it right now. I'm not struggling to survive. I get some decent money bc I had a job that gave me a good income and I have a social system that catches me. But thats not the case in every nation of our 196 nations in the world. Even here low-class means you are worth not a cent. These are the ones who have to compare every price (doesn't matter if its just two cents). These are the ones who don't know if they're able to bring food to the table or able to pay the rent next month. This is the world we life in. This is in what we believe. This is good enough. Theres another thing about our so beloved system. Capitalism knows only one way: Upwards. It will climb this way like there is no end. But in fact: Theres is an end. Thats when a financial depression kicks in. When nothing is worth anything. We had this several times in the past 100 years. We produce more than we need, because some people of the earths population want to get more and more and more money on the shoulders of the working class. Which leads to one point: In this world on class carries the other and is also depending on it. The wealthy need the working class to sustain the wealth. Then there is the middle-class.. they don't want to lose their status. To do so, they need the low-class, that will almost do every shitty job that there is. Allright. Enough of that. Lets get to the part of a world without money. I think that the four words "a world without money" sets off some strange thoughts in anyone of you. Some cannot imagine it. Due to politics, due to the world we know. For this I'd like to add a quote from Matrix: Think about this quote.. aren't we doing exactly that? Protecting our ruling system without any doubt and without even questioning why we should? Well.. another interesting quote from the movie fight club (thanks to blablubb reminding me of it): What if.. that all wouldn't be necessary, because our system is totally fair? Making us full equal and not just a member of a species that got lucky in some point of evolution? That for I will go on with an example to make you understand how a world without money would work: Imagine a poor country. So called "Third world". The people there are poor, we know that. So there is one guy who got some goats. To survive this harsh surrounding, he sells milk from the goats. This works perfectly fine for him. Even make him some kind of wealthy for their standards. Thats good for him. Thats good for the nation somehow. But right now we see, that its the same model we life in... with the exception that some of us are living in a gifted first world. There comes the trouble: So a businessman of an imaginary country of your choosing has a company that has some knowledge of creating milkpowder. Just add some water and you got some shitty milk, that could be good enough for some people. So this businessman decides to expand. He wants more money. So he starts to look for an easy target and he finds it. In a nation that he never heard of, never been to and never will be there. Bad thing for our Goatman. The businessman starts to sell the cheap milkpowder in the Goatmans region. Very fast all the people in that small village of that Goatman understand that this milkpowder is more affordable and start to buy that instead of the regional product from the Goatman. The Goatman is in trouble now. Well kiddos.. this is a true story. A European-Businessman started to sell milkpowder in an African nation and destroyed literally everyone who sold milk for a living. Now you might say: Well.. if the businessman can do that, its his right. Yes. Its his damn right, there is nothing to discuss about it. The Businessman will go on vacation, have nice dinners, beautiful women (or men, who knows right?) around him. Never worry about getting anything he wants. The poor Goatman could only dream of it, even when he could sell his milk. So lets come to the tasty part. What if the world wasn't about money? How would this story look like? Money makes us doing one thing: Ignorant and always "me FIRST!". So. We still have our Goatman.. gifting people with free milk. Because there is no need to have money. We still have our businessman who works with milkpowder. So the businessman sees that harsh situation in that poor nation and thinks "lets help them" (thats what he probably had also in mind, but he wouldn't do it without winning anything). The businessman starts to bring the milkpowder down there. The Goatmen then has nothing to do suddenly. Well here comes the thinking part: There is a businessman that cares about people in a nation he never heard of, never been to and so on. Selfless. Because he don't need to make money, because there is none. He helps those people without putting a threat to someone who lives from people not doing exactly that. Okay. The Goatman got nothing to do, then just caring about his lovely and some kind of funny and cute little Goats. But he dreams. He even is very smart. He decides to leave for good and study. For free. So he does that and soon will become an engineer with a doctor-degree. He starts to use his knowledge, to probably help people on the other site of the world, without getting anything from it. Because there is no money. So what is the conclusion of all this? In a world where is no money. No benefit being someone having much of something. Everyone becomes equal. Everyone could go on vacation. Everyone could become what he ever dreamt of. You can do what you want. For some its just opening a bar. For someone else maybe just a Goatfarmer. Some are dedicating themselves to the human species and do something for the progress. May it be baking bread for everyone or developing new technology EVERYONE can profit of. In a world where money doesn't define you, you can really do what you love and want. Because you don't have to worry about anything. The whole population on earth is self supporting. If one region runs out of bread.. no problem. Another region takes in and covers that without expecting any form of value for it. Actually no one would have to worry, because we got everything. And we can focus on our progress and real problems. United as one big nation. Borders would become obsolete because there wouldn't be any competition any longer. Some of you might say "people will always start to fight and such". Yes, humans are emotional, someone will always break the nose of somebody else. But if there is no border or something, there is no need to rage war against each other, because its not about being better as the other one. But in the end we still have to wonder... why don't we just make it so? Its hard. Thats not the world we are living in. Thats not a world everyone can imagine. To get to this point there might be a need of a "hardreset" or event that makes us unite and focus on more important things than money. But I leave this rest out for discussion. I'd like to talk with you about this whole topic. If you've read so far, you know what I'm talking about and you know what I'm expecting. Thanks for reading anyway ❀️

    I like this concept on how the Teams and the Races will work. βœ”πŸ’― No drama, has initiation process, more challenges for the team members. If this materializes soon, this will be a boom right here in forums. Not to mention we got new faces on the block, they'll be the active ones in terms of the activities. Great one @Kargai! 😊 Agreed Bojana. I thank you for the appreciation. 😘 As an ALA member, I am honored. This is where I started my forum life.. Started as a noob.. Shared some thoughts and became and Enthusiast.. Participated some more and leveled up to a Hero. Shared ideas and talked to people and became a Master. Posted silly stuff and had fun with the others and became Guru. And now.. Knew some people who has great contents and I ascended as a Forum Super Saiyan. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Seriously, I am thankful. Forum for me is another place to relieve stress. The Forum Races was something for me, not to only earn extra sats, but to witness true team work and effort.

    I would just like to add that having a tag doesn't change anything much Was crediting giveaway yesterday, and got a ton of PMs while doing it, no matter I am a support member and can actually mute for begging in PMs... (didn't mute anyone, just btw, warned them all 1st and pointed them to the Chat Rules). I like the πŸ’§ next to the name when you rain, love the 🌟 when you send a n individual tip, all of those give certain amount of soul* to the chat and mark players more noticeable Some of them should be instant, such as those two I just mentioned, some are temp such as Forum Hero πŸ’™ and High Roller fire πŸ”₯, also a great choice to make them time-limited, and some are not used anymore for a reason, such as VIP tags, since they were permanent and the legitimate glue for the beggars Community should be a unity and feel equal, no matter how much someone wagers at certain point - just my 2 cents! ☺️

    Why not making smaller teams of people who are already active on forum ? Like 2 teams of 10-12 people + 1 gΓ©nΓ©ral (support) + 1 captain (mod) I believe the best way to motivate others to participate and join the groups is to let them see that we enjoy doing the races and winning some satoshis in the process. Than they'll have to postulate to one of the teams (like a thread to post their candidature with why they want to join the team, why they'll be a good fit). And they'll have to make a specific task on their first week in, to proove they can be an asset (baptism by fire). Like that it's on each of the participants to do the work to join and not the leaders to spend time to push everyone. And no more drama. We will not ask to everyone to be uber active every week on a constant basis but after 2-3 times of doing no jobs people could be replaced by someone else waiting in the purgatory. Or if both teams find a new candidate the number of participants in each could increase (14 instead of 12, than 15, etc.) Or we could add a team, etc. There is still the creative aspect which is by default subjective. There will always be issues with that, that's ne nature of it, each will judge it according to what he feel and if the judges don't understand a certain type of creation ... the creator will always have a hard time making them feel what he did. So maybe 3 judges who change each time ? Like having 6-7 judges and taking 3 differents one at each race, mixing them with time ? Mixing judges, mixing tasks, ... dunno what we could do more... (but still thinking at it)

    A world without money

    I agree about the fact lots of things would improve without money : less stress, less jealousy, more "real" interactions (i will do that for you and you give me that), more people will do a work they are good and love to do instead of a paycheck one, less ressources will be used to make the money people need to buy ressources, things will be less global and more local, ... But I don't believe it will stop war & co. The monetary reason will just be replace by something else like to have the power over others. This is inherent to humans, they want to be better/stronger than others. Wars and fights existed way before money. Same with the family time. Back in the days people tend to go to work in the fields, mines, hunting or so on and spend all day long to work, seeing only their family few moments a day. That wasn't rare that mans where not with their family for days, weeks or months. Actually I believe we can spend more time with our family nowadays ... but we spend that time in devices (smartphones, computers, television, ...), going out with friends, ... instead of being present with our relatives (back in the days they don't have a lot to do except staying home with the fam). So it's mostly a choice people don't make today, in most of the countries the number of hours you can work a week is limited, in early ages you worked as much as you can.

    I'd really love to see this races coming back to life. I almost would say I'd join the jury.. even if I'd like to "fight" with my brothers and sisters again. We had a lot of fun and spirit and organized ourselves a lot. If there is anything I could do to bring that back, even if I had to step back.. I'd probably do that.

    well as for me, any multiplier below 1.5x is a deathwish lol i do use 1.55 sometimes and it helps but i still bust in the end :(.. ive seen loads of HR's rolling 1.1 and below with high base and its awful to see how huge their losses after quite a few rolls.. no multiplier is safe.. yet good for you that you have recovered your losses lol

    Thank you for your input and interest, people, it is highly appreciated! Lack of sport spirit that some team-members had was out of my comprehension, simply couldn't grasp why something nice done with and for the community could have been so flipped by creating unhealthy rivalry and War (initial idea was to name them Forum Wars, but sounded too hostile, so gave up on that) instead of fun and way to earn via Pay-per-Post and actually weekly giveaway rewards. Not to mention at one point I was accused of rigging the competition for my team to win, cause I was the one organizing it (!)... that is why nothing can be done until the results can be automatized, third party for the judges is found and some kind of consistency reached in this sense. I was lucky to have a team of people that didn't need to be pushed, most of the times I would wake up and topics were covered, they organized among themselves and played fair all the way; respect is important among the members of the team as well as among the rivals #ALAFORLIFE πŸ‘ So in case of a continuation, no, I would not like to step off, or anything, the idea was mine and Noah's mostly, so this is something I would love to play on Have received the ton on applications for new members, but we stopped at 75, so if continuing, guess the pool can be open to reach 100 now, no? Kargai has some nice ideas that can be implemented, and yes, it should be about quality, not the quantity... unfortunately, due to the lack of the jury, the quantity was the only measure that could have been used to determine winners in the previous three Races

    Because the price drop happened you should be able to buy some at the lower price and then play with that or if you fell you are wasting too much then just hodl the coins like me.

    Bc its a pain in the ass. You might celebrate you hit something big and then "blabla sent you a message"... "blabla sent you a message" or in chat "trivia!" and so on. Thats just disrespectful. You know it can be awful enough if you only tip 2-3 people without winning big obviously.
