When I tap on my neighbor's game (doesn't matter which one) the tadpoles up in the right-hand corner flash "10" on and off and then drop to "0". I know I haven't used any of them other than one obligatory visit I had to make as part of the game. Is anyone else having this problem? How am I supposed to drop tadpoles in other towns? :/

    Thanks @simpsonare ... hopefully it's something that will just go away on it's own.

  • Doesn’t that usually mean the town you’re trying to drop them in is already full? Presumably if you go to other towns it will work? Or are you getting the same result in every town?
  • It just means their town is full. When it’s first loading it says 10 till it downloads correctly

    Yes. This has been the case in most events where you drop something into a neighbours town. It shows 10 and quickly resets to the actual number that you can drop.

    Jonalinn, try my town. I am down on the list alphabetically, very few people visit my town and I clear out my town on a regular basis. Oh I am also one of you neighbours

    Does this also happen with the Other Springfield?

    Great question @KrustyBrand ~ no, it doesn't.

  • That's because the clear all visitors and critters isn't working on the frogs. The frogs you see when you tap that are the ones you would have got from tapping zoo visitors manually.

    You have to physically search for them to clear them from your town. If no one is clearing them manually then there towns will remain full.

    I think they are only supposed to be in your town for 4hrs but who knows for sure.

    It's buggy as heck. :/

    Well, given that, you should at least be able to complete daily challenges involving the dropping of tadpoles. As to the larger problem, it’s odd, although I do dimly recall a small number of similar reports from past events. I don’t think those glitches were ever really resolved (except, of course, when the event ended).

    Pretty sure @Jonalinn is talking about a separate issue.

    It doesn't seem right. I have been able to drop frogs in your town, but I have never seen a single frog in my town. A couple of times I have looked for them before I tap the feeding station, but I have found nothing. I thought it was because my name is far down the list. :/

    Yes I know I'm just stating that it's buggy. Myself included. I have over 200 critters that I havent been able to drop.
  • I am thinking that this clear all button on one of the item would also have wiped the frogs away? Hence hard to find a frog in town.

    The flashing icon represents the calculating process to show you how many number of frogs left you can leave on your neighbor town. Is flashing because the town just loaded. This is been going on for couple of years. Is showing 0 because the town is full. The towns are full because all tappers are flooding with 10 fros. I have 65 frogs now. I can invade 6 town or 12 by my own if I leave 5 piece.
