I once collected glim at one event quest series that required glim. when I did loot collect a thing I got the glim accounted, but when i de-lootcollect it, then my glim did *decrease*. But it probably will work if you loot collect maaaaany fish like 10 min before the challenge ends and revert them back to fish when the challenge is over...

One specific gem? I started playing before MoP came out about one year ago and I got exactly 2 Cubic Curtains with CD/MD/CH. Two in over one year - and the later one after they did kill the 1-stat-possibility on gems.
If you want one specific gem effect with perfect stats - forget it xD Dont expect anything soon and fallow the way Kowebi suggested
Personally, I feel like these are awesome additions encouraging players to compete in ways they didn't think of before. Though I do see your point, people will abuse these as they do with blocks placed and many other weekly challenges. These things aren't exactly avoidable but I'm sure trion will work on a fix to any exploits as best as they can.
