    I have been working at A Thinking Ape full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If we ban certain players, it would be safer for other players!

    Cons

    We do have a lot of complaints from players from other ATA games! For instance, the game Party In My Dorm, we have to much problems with extortion. From my perspective, a lot of people are asking for stuff that is nearly impossible to do almost. I would really want to make Party In My Dorm a safe game for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is that we should lower the prices for in-app purchases.
