I want to address the decline in touring in this thread. With a recent remark on our forum and the numbers of the recent contest on the NA shards, I do feel the need to speak. The numbers have been down for a time now but I thought for the contest at least it would improve a bit. It was not the case however. Which leads me to believe alts that are touring are low level and cannot plus. I have said, for myself when told "sorry I can't plus it" because of that fact it is not a problem and I mean it. But that is for me and I know others in the community don't feel that way.
When we plus a dim it is the way to show support not only for that dimensioneer but for the community on the whole.
It has been said that it is inconvenient to make touring alts and there is no reason invites can't go out in chat.
It may take time to make touring alts yes. I think it is well worth it. I have touring alts on all shards NA and EU that are level 10 and over. If I didn't take the time to make them I would miss out on all those fantastic dims. I would not have found all those that may or may not have invited in NA chat and would have definitely not seen all the amazing EU dims. As far as asking in chat I am sad to say hardly anyone responds to those invites.
Some also think they see everything from a pic on the forum or our wonderful sites, that is not the case. You miss the dim as a whole and all the beautiful details that have been put into the dimension.
There is a new contest on the horizon. I am urging all of you with touring alts under level 10 to level them up and those of you who don't have touring alts to take the time to make level 10"s. There is plenty of time to do so for this new contest. Let's show our community the support it deserves.
