Hmm, is going to be interesting when the so called update comes out.
It is not really an update, as it appears none of it will be included on the current server/game.
So you will need to go to the new server to get any of it, where Gizmo has said you can take your old avis in there or create new ones.
My feelings on that, if you take your old avis in there, the people behind Pandora will likely be ready to match up all those avis with the data thay have and gain all the new IDs allotted to those avis.
I also feel there will be a lot of people go in there making entirely new avis not letting people know who they are, doesn't mean all of them will be up to no good, but I think lots will.
I wonder just how many people are going to keep going in there, and even how many people will not even bother.
Something that would be interesting to see, would be a comparison between how many would go in and stay, if it was just set up with only one avi slot.
Plus that would do a lot more to stop Pandora in it's tracks.
From what Gizmo said that our account will be moved into the new server once the testing of it is done. Not sure if Pandora would still have access to that information once the update is in full force because of a different server and ID.
As far as multiple accounts go I think they might be more common then people think, but most of the people who I have heard that have them are trolls or DJ who are using them to fill their rooms. I know that is more common then some people thing. I kind of think that at the end of the day what matters is how they are using them. I am sure there are shady people who use them though and having more then a few seems shady, but I think that people who change their alts a lot are not really something I worry to much about.
WC is a very good example of that. I'm a DJ on there and I have only one account and I don't ask my friends to bring themselves or others into the room. I'm there to DJ and have fun with the users in the room that have taken time to come listen to the music I'm playing.
isn't that shady too?
Not that I agree with it but hey if they're not talking shit on someone and that's all their doing. It doesn't make sense to me to do that when you can just move it up, play good music and interact with the people in the room, you won't need to have another account to do that.
My experience with opening rooms is that once you get ten people in them they tend to fill up a lot easier. I think that a lot of the popular DJ's and room owners do that or have friends who have a number of accounts in order to get the room started otherwise it might take an hour or more before enough people join. Its way worse since they changed how rooms are bumped now that it cost 300 gold and you drop to the bottom of the list. I know of a number of DJ's and room owners who I have heard have 6~10 accounts so it cant be that rare. I think that for some people being a popular DJ or room owner matters a lot and yes its shady. I cant see any other reason for have a large number of accounts active at the same time.

Yes I agree, I look for rooms with a certain vibe and it really doesn't depend much on the number of people that are there.
My experience, the rooms that become popular and end up constantly having people go there is because of the people that frequent that room.
I have seen rooms with over 100 people in them where it has been boring, the local chat was all things like, "lets party" "everybody dance" and not anything really creative and generating much fun, these rooms more often than not do not last that long.
There are DJs that are popular not only because they play good music, but also because they have a following of people that know how to have fun, and they follow that Dj to what ever room they play in.
A good DJ realises that it is not only the music they play, but is also they need people that will generate fun in local chats and bring others into that fun.
When I go into a room, I look to see what is going on in local chat, I see if it is creative or not and listen to the music being played.
I don't really care to much about the number of people in there, if it looks like people are having fun in there I will stay, if not I look elsewhere.
So have I. When I'm in a room I look for the interaction of the room, I don't care how many are in there. If you have a dead room in local you won't keep people there unless the room design is good and/or music even with a DJ.
The bold is my exact thought as I shared that above. I've had over 150+ people in a room when I was in there DJing but the fun part is interacting with the users that come in and having fun while doing it, even if it's just dancing. Others may be using the room for other things but I dance and joke about, even make fun if I fuck up while DJing, that's what keeps the users attention.
To my comment earlier about a few I know that have multiple accounts. When I said about them I do know of one that didn't like the fact that someone else was with another person but who are we to judge if they do the very same thing the other is doing. I have one account with 3 avis, I don't need anymore even though I could afford it because I don't see the point in it. I know others that have a second account some use it to play around some use it for building so they can check things. I have 3 female avis, So I ask a male friend to help with some things to check a pose on how the male sits as Bob doesn't do that and I use Bob to check the poses for couples.
