So basically DL created a space to keep out the certain people and now that the event is over your inviting the non penthouse owning folk to a tour of a space we were never invited to in the first place?


Not quite like that, its by invitation only to both Penthouse and non-Penthouse owners, its just that access into the room is via the Penthouse.


Ok but how do you access it if you dont own the penthouse?  Your invitation is for everyone that doesnt own it, since if you did own it you wouldnt need an invite correct?   I think its a very nice thing your doing, but DL is excluding people and thats not cool.


Sorry, I didnt put it across well. The Event Room is designed for Events only, in lastnights case it was for Leaderboard Jacket Winners only. Owning the Penthouse doesnt get anyone into the room, as it wont be open like, for example, the High Rollers or VIP rooms which are opened when reaching certain levels.

 

Lastnight gave the Jacket Winners first view of the space, and now its over the room is for anyone else to view if they wish to have a look. Just owning the Penthouse wont get anyone into the room, they will still need to be invited which is why I'm asking anyone that wishes to have a look that they message me so I can put them on the list. I'm also offering my Penthouse just incase someone who cant get to one would also like to have a look. Have a chat with me in Home if you like, I may not have put it across very well.

Where's the fun in that?  I go to the Casino to gamble, since the real ones would kick you out after awhile.

Folks:

 

A quick addendum to Mermaid's tour post: as she said, once on the Admission list for the space, the only way to enter the Event Room is from the Penthouse - either your own Penthouse, or from the Penthouse of one of your friends.

 

If you don't already own the Penthouse - and if you don't have a friend who owns a PH, feel free to send a Friend Request to user "CasinoSecurity_0". She'll then invite you to her PH, from where you can Enter the Event Room!

 

But FIRST - don't forget to message Mermaid-KT so she can put your name on the Guest List!

Thanks to Mermaid-KT for letting me check the space out. It's pretty cool and I enjoyed the new game coming out soon too!

I got to see it today. it's pretty nice and it's interesting to see an invite only space.

 

Sadly one has to ponder that this was created in order to reduce the issue with those who attend events and simply create problems when there by being rude. The second award ceremony was the catalyst for this.

The event last night was a blast and the room is well worth taking the tour. Loved the new game, too. Really nice of Digital Leisure to open the room for others to see and Mermaid-KT to offer her time/Penthouse for the tours.  Smiley Very Happy Mur

Users being not allowed access to certain spaces or parts of spaces has been part of Home for quite a while. The first I personally recall is the Pilot's Lounge at Sodium 1. SingStar VIP had restricted access also, but you just needed an invite from a friend.

 

Other "public" spaces that have restricted access include:

Sunset Lounge

The Prairie

x7

Behind the rope in the theater

The Harry Potter spaces (not sure about these, never went there)

(I'm sure there are more)

 

 

Look for this trend to continue and gain momentum, as it's an easy way for developers to get people to shell out money to get into certain spaces, and help to defray the costs for them to develop the spot and the item(s) required for access.

And if Home is on the PS4, there will be spaces only those users who are using a PS4 will have access to as well.

This may be true, but this can also play itself in different ways, it will be either in favor or against the Devs just like the others you mentioned above.  If you took the time to visit these spaces you mentioned they are ghost towns WHY,  because of them only allowing some people to enter.  In General people want to enjoy spaces with their friends, so if friends can't get in then they wont go there either and the space will turn into a ghost town.  Which is why it would make sense not to exclude people, right?

 

A second handed invite to something I was not invited to in the first place is not a true invite, at least not to me. 

I don't want to take away for what Mermaid is doing which I think is great Smiley Happy  so I will agree to move on and I hope you will to.
