Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    I've had, without exception, great luck with the above. Can't say the same about 2 of the ones listed in other posts.
    They shall remain nameless but in one case it was poor service and the other a generally cheesy way of doing business.

    These are from the ones I own, have tried out, or have corresponded with the builder directly.
