As a user since 2013 to present, there are some aspects of the game that I like and some I do not.
I like the idea of being able to make friends online, but with this comes bullies too.
Not to mention that this website is in no way child-friendly.
There are people always talking about sex, looking for ways to get around the chat filter.
The trading system is very flawed, being that recently there have been an increasing number of scams, people are literally losing all of their items and ourWorld's response to this could not be anything less than completely useless.
They tell their users that there's nothing that they can do if you get scammed and pretty much blame it all on the user who loses all their items because they agreed to make the trade.
You know, nothing can be their fault, even if you are a PAYING customer!!
It couldn't be the fact that they make it way too easy for people to scam and some of the never members are not aware of scam epidemic and are falling for it - oh no, not at all, ourWorld could never do any wrong (can you hear the sarcasm?)
The least they could do is return the lost items, but they refuse to help in the least, so if you get scammed, you're screwed.
Which is the main reason why so many scam victims leave the site never to be seen again.
I cannot stress how many valuable friendships I have lost for this very reason.
They don't ban the scammers, allowing them to run free to scam many people after them.
The game is full of a bunch of greedy pigs who try to get twice the value of their "rares".
The site literally cheats you out of gems which you pay for.
You can go to some of their partner sites and get more gems for the same price that they charge.
The site lags - A LOT, and they refuse to do anything about it so they just blame it on our WiFi providers, saying that our connections are too slow, I guess there is no internet service provider fast enough for your website then? Because EVERYBODY lags.
There are people on there "duplicating items" and while they fixed this bug, it has thrown the Marketplace out of whack A LOT.
Ex: An item that used to be worth 150,000,000 is now worth 50,000,000 because the dupers would duplicate the items and then sell them for an outrageously low price.
The people on there are very rude!
They will bully you and if you report the person, they won't do anything about it.
The moderators on the Forums are also very rude.
They make these people moderators because these people are "recommended" to be moderators by other users and then the new mods abuse their power; locking topics when it's not necessary, blocking people from logging into their accounts because they posted on their topics twice in one hour, for telling somebody their artwork is garbage (because a lot of it really is - people will try to charge you for junk art that my 7 year old sister could have drawn better with a black crayon) and for so many other stupid little reasons.
Their customer service takes 3 days AT LEAST to respond to you, if you ever get a response.
They will make charges to your account for a membership you never purchased without consent - and the only way to undo this is to contact customer support, which as we all know is very unreliable.
The ads you load for non-membership members before they go into a room sometimes causes the game to freeze, or the room to never load at all.
If you're above 18 years old, you often times get called a "creep" for being on a "children's" game - even though it's more like an adult website.
Newsflash ourWorld: There is a reason people are moving to IMVU!
They can still get their sexually explicit content without having to worry about a chat filter and the game also has significantly better graphics - being that every female on ourWorld looks like an anorexic nightmare.
The game is very flawed, and I've had my good and bad experiences, but there are significantly more cons then pros.
ourWorld and VegasWorld go hand-in-hand which explains why both of them are equally bad.
FlowPlay inc. itself is just a joke and is out to get your money.

Tip for consumers: For any parents - I do not recommend allowing your child to use this website if they are under the age of 16 unless you want your child to have an extremely polluted mind.

I really like the games and the overall idea behind this website.

The only problem I really have is the people in chat. They find ways around the filter and say very inappropriate things sometimes. If chat was eliminated, I would have no issues. The chat makes this website inappropriate for children under 16.

Seriously though, this site is pretty great otherwise. The games are really fun, and most of them are pretty simple to play. For anyone who is mature and over 16, this is a great website.

Definitely not a place for kids. Sex and bully filled. If you are not over level 50, then you will get called a "newb" and get reported and hated on. All the events have something to do with sex, guy on guy, girl on girl, etc.
