If you were to just ignore users, or quality, for example, will it cause problems beyond not having the hearts?

If you ignore a critical stat for too long, you get shut down. If you have a flag, you can use it to save yourself. From my tests on an abandoned Stack Exchange site:

  • You can always ignore a critical stat three times.
  • You can ignore a critical stat four times, unless something else would cause it to decay faster.
    • A downvote causes Users decay.
    • Low Questions causes Answers decay.
    • High Traffic causes Quality decay.
  • You can never ignore a critical stat five times in a row.

If you simply want to be safe, ignore three times. If you are attempting a perfect game, look for situations where you can ignore four times.

    lol. I like your edit comment.

  • I've noticed that not playing reverts the low stats. Apr 2, 2015 at 8:13
  • @IsmaelMiguel Reverts them to.... what?

  • To full. They will be full when you check. Apr 2, 2015 at 16:08
  • Can anyone aside from Ismael confirm that not playing allows you to ignore a critical stat indefinitely? I didn't get a chance to test this myself, and now the game is gone.

It will force you to use a flag, or terminate the game, you cannot ignore them to long. I think the limit is four days, although I don't have tests to back it up.
