Re: Should we still be forced to only use Pottermore items in the Pottermore spaces?

I still think that the Pottermore clothes are the most appropriate attire for the spaces. Nitrate, when I hung out with you at the Alley a couple weeks ago, I was admittedly using the exploit to change outfits and try LMO's. Actually, the only reason I even went to the space was to test how the exploits worked out of curiosity. I have not been back to any of the Potter spaces since then.

@Chad How much more fun would the Potter movies have been if they did have strippers? I know that Radcliffe went full Monty on stage.

Re: Should we still be forced to only use Pottermore items in the Pottermore spaces?

Being forced to wear Harry Potter themed clothes isnt a big deal to me, it only makes sense to be limited to outfits that suit the Potterverse.    LMOs is another story, if they do release broom LMOs I dont feel like current LMO broom owners should have to purchase a 2nd one just to use it there.  I also dont think we should be forced to use local chat only.  I understand why they went that route, but I dont agree with it and think thats more of the reason people dont hang out there long.

Re: Should we still be forced to only use Pottermore items in the Pottermore spaces?

Apr 28, 2013

Personally I like how it looks when everyone is in costume and it really helps add to the experience. Seeing motorbikes driving up Daigon Alley and bikini clad females standing on the steps outside Gringots to me really ruins the atmosphere of the spaces, but I would like to atleast be able to keep my hairstyle.

 

If the restriction to wear Pottermore clothes was lifted, I would probably never go back there again. I'm finding many of the LMOs lately to be to big and far too obtrusive, and its very refeshing being able to go to a public space without them, its almost like going back in time when Home was so much simpler!

 

Having said all this though, I do think this restriction must remain the exception to the rule (which I think Pottermore is) and would not like to see this stretch into other areas of Home.

 

The 'Local Only' chat I do find a bit unnecessary and whilst it doesnt concern me too much I would like to see it removed as I can understand why others dont like it.

Just to be clear, I wasn't referring to you Liza, or even calling anyone out for changing their minds, just observing how many that were very much against people using exploits to change outfit and LMOs/companions in those space have since been spotted in those spaces using non Pottermore items.

 

I also agree that the Pottermore outfits clearly fit the space quite well, as they should.  However, the variety is so limited, when everyone is wearing the same or very similar outfits it loses its charm, rather than enhances.

 

Also, the issue get's more complicated when you consider all the wonderful non Pottermore items that fit perfectly within the theme of the spaces and add variety and creativity without taking anything away from the "Pottermore" experience.  

 

For instance, just look at this wonderful outfit PinkJulia recently posted:

Besides these items and obviously ones like the wands from LKWD, the various broom LMOs, the GZ wizard items, various animal companions, etc - there are also countless items that also could easily fit within the Pottermore theme.

 

While I also agree that the developer has the right to place what ever restrictions they want, but the result of those restrictions may very well be keeping many people from wanting to ever return to their spaces, so while they have the right to do it, that doesn't mean it's a smart thing to do.

No worries and no offense taken...but I did fit the criteria from your post. I spoke out in support of the dress code restrictions a few weeks ago and there I was, riding around Diagon Alley in regular clothes on an LMO. I really was only there to see if the restrictions could be circumvented as easily as I'd heard. Indeed they could. In all fairness, I was fully clothed in black from head to toe and didn't call any attention to myself by posing on the steps. Perhaps the Xi cycle was a tad out of place. :smileywink:

 

If I happened to be a fan of Potter and the Home spaces, I would be happy to keep my attire in line with the atmosphere. As it is, I just don't frequent the spaces.

These two statements are a bit of a paradox.  If one likes to see everyone follow similar costume themes for a space, why would you be against other spaces doing the same thing?

This is why, as has been suggested time and time again, and still not a single response from anyone from Sony or the Home staff, or even our own Community Manager, that we need an option to make LMOs and even someone's avatar disappear from our POV... Just as we already have that option with other people's companions.

Not only because of how large some LMOs are getting, but having this option would solve sooo many issues that are complained about regarding Home - like people who are offended by someone wearing sexually provocative clothes, or someone with a violent themed outfit.  Basically it would allow each person to determine for themselves what is or is not appropriate for a space.

 

This way, everyone is happy, instead of what we have now, and that is complaints about what someone feels is or is not appropriate in different spaces, and not just Pottermore.

Thats a super picture from PinkJulia and it is a shame that the restriction prevents many people from being able to express such creativity, unfortunately though, the PinkJulia 'style' is overshadowed by the gogo girl costumes, choppers and other huge LMOs.

 

At the moment Pottermore is unique in restricting what items are supposed to be used there, and as long as this doesnt stretch into other normal spaces, there are plenty of areas to use all these other items, so I think its nice to allow Pottermore to keep the fact its unique.

I took Mermaid's comment to apply to general public spaces on Home. A certain number of themed spaces with unique rules are not a problem but they should simply be the exception. I'm sure that most people would not like to see widespread wardrobe and LMO restrictions thoughout Home, certainly not the developers who create and sell those items.

What I'm tying to say is that for unique spaces in Home it is nice to see, as it sets a scene, but i would not like to see it spread into normal spaces withen Home.

 

For example, only wearing Granzella items at Glittering Sands, or DL clothes in the Casino would be wrong, but Harry Potter or other similar franchize is an 'excpeption' which helps set a scene. I'm trying to think of another example similar to Harry Potter that I would consider similar but at the moment cant think of one, which is why I think it should only ever be the exception to the rule, and not one that we see spreading out across all of Home.

I wish I read your reply before writing mine as you summed up exactly what I was trying to say, I could have then saved a post and left you a kudo instead. Ohhh have a kudo anyway  :smileyhappy:
