Why can you only use one every 7 days? Don't you think it'd be profitable for the site for you to use as many as you want?

I had no idea it was restricted in that way o: I agree that removing that time limit seems reasonable.

I found the

news post from when the Wonder Zapper was released...

Literally 5 years ago!!

5 years ago we had little, to no special colors, so I can see the reasoning behind it, but now we have almost 500 different colors. The time restriction has #GottaGo!

@Cowpro @Luventas

I believe that there is a wait time on the Wonderzapper so that it’s not so much of a “pay to win” Item. This way the harder to earn colors still require a little work... even if that work is just waiting!

For instance, Space MPs are 500 Quest Points which would normally take a user ~10 Days to earn. So getting a Space color from the Wonderzapper saves you not only all the time, iP, and effort it takes to Quest for those points, but also shaves off some of your overall wait time. Even with Quest Extenders it would still take you at least 9 Days to get those points (and that’s assuming you complete every Quest you can, which is unlikely not to mention expensive).

But it’s always interesting hearing the user perspective on these types of details! I’m going to move this thread to Help & Questions, as well!

I was never super tempted by the wonder zapper myself, and I think the 7 day cooldown is why. I brought some thoughts up in staff discussion, and after thinking about it harder, I think the item *is* pretty well designed as-is! My very first impressions of it was that it's a bit pricey for not a huge benefit, but comparing the price to the SJs/MPs both in and out of the ICE shop, and the difficulty of some of the colours it can unlock, I've decided I do like it. However, I think it's pretty niche, at least for me-- I don't imagine using it until I have the closet almost entirely filled in apart from the hardest colours. Using it early on seems like you'd be less likely to get something exciting.

Here is the node, you who hate change and fear revolution. Keep these two squatting men apart; make them hate, fear, suspect each other. Here is the anlage of the thing you fear. This is the zygote. For here "I have lost my land" is changed; a cell is split and from its splitting grows the thing you hate—"We lost our land." The danger is here, for two men are not as lonely and perplexed as one. And from this first "we" there grows a still more dangerous thing: "I have a little food" plus "I have none." If from this problem the sum is "We have a little food," the thing is on its way, the movement has direction.
