Tying it to the in store themed stuff is good. Someone is paying attention.
Staggering the timing to line up with Halloween is also very smart.
The submission check is a great fix as long as it works.
Gem Events will always be the wrong way to deliver content. They abuse our desire for items and trick people into false hope. These emotions create a negative experience for most players, and it wears them down when it comes to their enjoyment of Yo. People participate, because they want the stuff and/or the coins they get for selling it. But they are mostly NOT HAPPY in doing so. They'd rather buy what they want from you. You continue to ignore this reality, and I sincerely hope it doesn't hurt the game in the long run. A few more people I play with every month are learning to just stay away. Eventually they all will.
I'll probably whore myself out for your Halloween gem event and hate myself and the event for forcing me into it. If you are looking for a "good job" or an "attaboy", go talk to your Marketing team. They are all probably frothing with excitement over this - while the majority of your players are worn out and frustrated. You just don't get it yet. You will.
