    Out of curiosity can we see these #'s?

    I would be curious to know this as well. Specifically, how many FEWER clicks there are for certain things. For example, how many fewer lottery entries there are each day.

    I'd love it if I could give out specific numbers around certain things, but there are things that are proprietary and confidential. I'll see what I can dig up, but it might not be much. I might be able to give general indications.

    Believe it or not, Lottery views were up the last we checked.

    How about a ~% of people that are actually closing this feature off daily then?

    Of course, now I have to check 2 or 3 times if it's already there or not.

    Exactly. Which is why I do not bother with anything that has to do with the Karousel any longer. I have never gotten more than 3 out of 5 numbers in more than 4 years of playing anyway, so it's not worth the extra clicks to me.
    I have also given up on closing the Karousel every day, because that is simply ridiculous. So those numbers won't be representative of those of us that do not like it.
    Interesting that the numbers are "proprietary". Really? What possible use could I have for using this information to my own advantage? Can I use that information to make money somehow, or steal money away from Kano? This argument makes absolutely NO SENSE to me. And even if I can't have that information, we don't even get the standard vague response to inquiries we normally get (such as, "Our internal tracking shows that the majority of players actually use the Karousel on a regular basis, and this has not drastically reduced participation in various elements of the game, so you are dead wrong, Jared.")
    Simple question: How many players checked the lottery, say, a week before the Karousel was implemented on a particular weekday, and how many players checked the Karousel, say, 2 weeks ago on a particular weekday? Not really representative of a trend, but it would represent how many DAILY players such as myself still check the lottery, which would be pretty telling. Or are these numbers simply too "proprietary" and "confidential" to release to the public, as it would more than likely lead to the end of gaming as we know it?

    I had always used the God tab for lottery, but I can see if use to something for years how it would piss someone off.
    Hey Mitch, go move the coffee maker and beer fridge to different location in the building and see what responses you get LOL. :)

    After months of clicking "Hide activities", I have to tell you... I hate constantly clicking Hide Activities!!!! Once I click it off, it should stay off. This is what I hate about some of your changes.

    I got use to it and it is fine, It even reminds me to do things I forget, like World Boss.

    I don't forget to do the World Boss because the Boss Tab is one of the first things I do. I go collect on other bosses and see how mine is doing. Not sure if you are working bosses how you could forget the World Boss because it pops up if you haven't hit it in 4 hours. But whatever.

    i really don't understand why when we close it it won't STAY closed until we decide to reopen it.

    How come on FB VC and PC I don't have the ability to hide offers like a can on both FB and Kong Mob Wars?

    Im the "if it aint broke, dont try to fix it" type of fella! It wasn't broke, and didn't need any fixing however it still works fine and isn't that big of an annoyance having to scroll down an extra inch to get to the text you want to see.

    example: lottery. i used to be able to scroll down once, click on the lottery icon on the left hand side of the page, and BOOM! find out that i lost instantly.
    now: 1) go to carousel 2) click to see that i have boosts available to share, which i don't care about 3) click to see that i have a daily reward available, which i already checked 4) click to see the lottery announcement (finally!) 5) click on the button to find out that i lost. i also think that you have to find out whether or not you have challenge shots available first, but i already used all mine for now, so i saved a step today.
    yes, this is SOOOOO much easier than it used to be!

    Still gotta gave Kano an E for Effort......remembering that an E is a failing grade :) I tend to stick with my old way of doing my daily routine. The change was wasted effort in my opinion, but it doesnt bug me either.
