So I just rejoined Glitch after a 2 month hiatus while the new changes were happening.
I read many forum posts about the changes, and they looked very cool, so I came back to try them out for myself.
After exploding my giant moving box all over my floor, I set about once again reorganizing all my stuff into little piles all over the place to make managing the reduction in size from a 3-floor mansion to a starter home manageable.
One thing I did not understand, is how public your home street is. I read about the signposts, and how to transport from one home street to another by adding friends. Given that I didn't have anybody on there yet, I assumed no one could find my street. So I set about using the loooong street I had dumped all my iMG into, as a second storage and reorganizing area while I gathered the skills and mats to expand the floors of my house, intending to put everything back in my house once huge-ified, before adding my friends to the signpost and being a social glitch once again.
I now know this is untrue, because when I logged in this morning, someone had 'visited' me, and took a huge chunk of my belongings, most importantly (to me) ALL my "Street Creator" trophy parts.
I don't care about the other stuff, I have a zillion currants and can buy back whatever else over time. But those trophies took a huge amount of effort to watch for streets under construction, gather all the mats, fight 2000 other glitches for a spot at the Project sign, and contribute huge amounts to.
Now I have none. It's my fault, and maybe everyone else who played around the conversions but me realized streets are now accessible by your profile, but for the other people who have been out of game for a while, it might be a good idea to add something to the 'welcome back' messages to this effect.
If you took my stuff, I want you to know it wasn't intentionally left out in a public space, and I'd really appreciate it if you would return it! Although I don't blame you for understanding the rules which I now see are pretty clear about it in other forum posts.
Thanks for the butterfly, but I would like my Street Creator Trophy pieces back =)
