Since mega fishpot as initially imagined (one luckly winner would get it all - lottery concept) never reached a fertile ground within fishing community, plus it would take the whole game system on the edge of what is allowed by Second Life TOS (as it would resemble game of luck - eventhought nobody was buying tickets) - it was meant to be discontinued for long time now.
I was unable to thought of alternative use of MEGA fishpot funds. It was just causing confusion. There is no more reason for collecting small percentage for MEGA Fishpot from every caught fish and I've decided to completely shut down the MEGA fishpot fund collections as percentage of fish.
MEGA fish catch which uses funds from MEGA fishpot to reward fishers will stay and fishers can still catch a MEGA fish but MEGA FISHPOT as of this moment will not grow anymore.
What will be the effect of this decision?
Fishing buoys budget will last for about 3 - 5 % time longer, which means more and longer lasting traffic for buoy owners and more fishes for fishers.
I hope this will lead towards more and longer fish multiplier events for everyone.
Have fun \☺/
Funds in MEGA FISHPOT will stay in a buoy until with our fishing community we figure out what for and how to use them for the benefit of fishing community.
