Just because I'm always curious about why people do what they do, I've asked some of my 1KP donors why only one .... well, in all but three cases, they have really small cities, want to reciprocate (because I donate to my ACTIVE neighbors) but are trying to complete research. The other three are hoping to get a cheap chest but they are also the ones that post zero and one star trades to profit off someone who either clicks in error or is just plain desperate. I have messaged many of my neighbors that if they need goods to shout out to me on discord or email and we can set a trade up so they get a fair trade and don't feel obligated to take trades that are ungood for their city economy. This of course is for the newbies moving in around me. I've just decided to impose my own beliefs about this game where I can, which means reaching out, talking and making new elvenar friends. My trader is slowly changing. I don't post cross tier trades unless I arrange it in advance with someone. I don't take them unless I'm asked. I flood the trader with tier for tier in amounts that the smaller cities can take. So I'm not going to complain about a 1KP donation. If it is one of the profiteers, I make the fellowship and friendlies aware that I need them to bump them out and we do a KP exchange.
