    Default Why lose recommendations on transfer?

    Is there any reason for this? Since everything in RIFT is cross shard including dimensions (though you gotta invite ppl from other shards) it seems to me like this is an outdated mechanic.

    Perhaps it prevents dim owners from shard hopping for 'likes'.
    I Rift, therefore I am.

    Wonk has the right of it. Specifically, when Trion sponsored a contest based on +1s a while back, some folks used shard transfers to gain extra votes and win.

    But the biggest problem that this has caused is that those who did shard hop, still have all their votes and everyone else cannot compete or ever hope of catching up vote-wise. I'm proud to be 4th top on my shard with just over 200 votes. The 1st place is a shard hopper with over 1,000 collected votes.

    I visit weekly upvoted dimensions more than lifetime upvoted.
