I've thought a lot about these for a while so I hope they don't come off as jerk-ish xD; And these aren't any huge deal to me, but just my two-cents.
1. Why is gestation only one week? It's not like I don't like it being shorter but I feel like it catches me off-guard almost because I'm so used to it being two weeks and matching the switching of the seasons. It makes it easier, for me at least, to keep track of when my foals are going to be born. There's also the want of role playing my mares when they're pregnant. A week isn't long enough to accomplish them unless you speed through them and you start as soon as the breeding thread is up. I also like the two week wait. It makes it more fun, in my opinion, to wait longer for that foal that you REALLY want.
2. I feel like there's a huge emphasis on the games right now like, to the point of spamming in them and therefore people are choosing to earn Hoofprints through the games rather than advertising or role playing because, let's face it, the games are a LOT easier, even though advertising gets you more Hoofprints per ad and role playing is the whole reason that we're here. I've been trying to figure out how to combat this issue and the only thing I can figure out how to fix it is through just shutting off the posting count (which will prevent Hoofprints getting added) in the games board alone so the only way to earn Hoofprints is through the games that give out more Hoofprints than just posting (i.e. Guess the Color, Guess the Horse, and Guess the Lyrics [idk about the last one since I haven't played it xD]) or implementing a no spamming rule so people can only post when x amount of people have already posted before them.
I understand people wanting Hoofprints to buy stuff for their characters (I just used all of mine xD) and art and whatnot but I feel like there are other (and better) ways for people to earn Hoofprints that will help the site (i.e. advertising and role playing. Oh and doing art for people by making a store! Forgot about that one.). Like I said, I don't have a fool proof idea to help fix this and even if it's not fixed I'm not going to cry and whine about it. It's just what I've noticed and I thought it would help to bring it up.
