    Has that always been the case for you, or has that recently changed? For me, since the very beginning of this all, I've never been able to stack handshakes. If a 3rd person taps, it replaces the previous tap. Starting yesterday though, my handshakes are stacking (at least as high as 3 taps, so far that's all I've seen).

    I'm really happy about it. Oh yeah, thanks neighbors! :wink:

    Some days I'm randomly able to get 3 shakes tops....but most days it's only two and I pop into my town multiple times to collect. I love the times I'm able to get 3 though! :)

    I can only get two handshakes. It's annoying.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Since the whole tile/farm/ch. 6 "glitch" (if we are still calling it that) started, I've never been able to have more than two handshakes at a time. For the last two days however I've had three handshakes at a time on my ch. 6, and today for the first time I had three on my farm when I logged in.

    Same here, only 2 handshakes where possible, but then some helpfull bord member told me, i have to log out in ordre to get more then the 2.

    So if i dont collect any hanshake and log out and in i can get one more fore each time i log in and out.

    as long as i log in and the game registers that i've visited my own town, they'll stack. Overnight however, I know for a fact that several of my good neighbors have visited and i'll only get a tap from one of them. Whomever was the last one to tap it.

    Edit: I've on multiple occasion seen two taps from you on surrounding bldgs but not my ch6. So unless you're not tapping my ch6 (which i'm assuming you are right good neighbor? :), then someone else came in after you and tapped it without a visit from me in between.

    Has this changed for anyone else? I feel like I've received an early Christmas present. :mrgreen:


    It builds up every time you log in and out ir visit your neighbors/KL and back. It's like a reset every time your town says synchronizing

    I visit you 3x a day Kungpao, or at least have been since you started growing corn (I assume you are growing corn since you haven't had a crop in awhile). Before that I was visiting twice a day, 2 taps ch. 6, 1 tap farm. The only time I tap anything in your Springfield that isn't ch. 6 is when it isn't available, and your 24 hour window is about to expire. I didn't visit anyone with window starting last night because I was hoping it "would be snowing" today.

    I am a very good neighbor. :wink:

    I don't know that I quite follow what you guys are saying changes the rules for the taps. I stay logged in all the time, and I sync constantly using KL and coming "home" from the neighbor list. I'm not doing anything differently than I've done before, but now I'm getting stacks of 3 where I wasn't before. I'd definitely start logging out if it meant getting more taps! I know I miss at least 90% of my ch. 6 taps because I always log in to find my best neighbors names with one or two taps on random buildings, but nothing on ch. 6 or my farm, which means they've tapped them and had them "erased", which is a total bummer.

    I agree with the OP. Something did change recently. I too had never even seen more than two handshakes over any of the glitchables (GREAT word BTW!) until late last week. I haven't changed my gaming pattern at all in that time. I have been and still log in every couple of hours and noticed last week that I was more than two handshakes. In fact, leaving it over night collects handshakes too. I go to bed with two over each and woke up this morning with five over each.

    It has been said before that the glitch itself is glitchy and that seems to be the case more and more recently.

    I can't get more than three stacked handshakes. I know this, because I leave two "insurance" shakes, then will tap multiple times with different feeder towns, but only have three shakes, the third being the last feeder town that tapped. I was able to stack 'em higher on Squidport.

    I've only been able to get 2 until a day or so ago. I've had a 3rd one waiting for me a few times over the past couple days, but it's still mostly 2 even if I get notice that more than one tile tapper visited.

    I think mine has that cap too. My wife said she tapped on CH6 last night. It wasn't there this morning.

    I'm not sure if this varies by device (I have the Kindle edition) but I'll try to do a logout tonight. Hopefully that'll work.

    3 handshakes max for me on the farm and channel 6, I have seen 5 on SP. Wish I could stack more on the farm, overnight I seem to get a lot of visitors and I'm sure they tap the corn, but I only get 1 because there are always 2 insurance shakes at all times.

    Two handshakes for me, I know that I had say 3 neighbors tap on my TV6 but I only hold the original shake and the newest one. I wish I could hold 5 ro 6 handshakes. Its a bummer that I miss out on good neighbors tapping on my "glitch".

    This just happened to me three times in the past two days!

    Before this I was only showing two stacked maximum, even though I KNOW there were more because on two separate occasions I tested it myself using my own multiple feeder towns. (On ONE occasion, about a week ago, I saw three. I was, like, totally STOKED.) (Fer shure.). But that didn't happen again. (Like, bummer, y'know?)

    But I've seen it three times in the past two days ... Including when I woke up this morning, which was awesome.

    Tomorrow, when my 24hour feeder town wait expires, I'll test it.

    EDIT TO ADD: as SOON as I posted this, I returned to my town and found FOUR handshakes stacked on my Channel Six.

    Annette gets the vapors:

    I hope it continues. I know it isn't happening all the time, I've again tonight seen the names of multiple friends around my town, but only one tap on the glitchies, but even if it happens SOMETIMES, well that's better than non.

    Annette, while you're here, which of your glitchables pays out the best for you? Today I had to choose between your stage and ch. 6, and I chose 6 hoping it paid more, but I have no idea.

    Good choice! I get top possible for each ...

    Max for stage is $1,320 (I end up with double that amount because of my multiplier)
    Max for Channel Six with Arnie Pye is $7,500 (again, I get double that amount ... )

    So today, I walked away with a cool $15,000 from your 2 channel six taps, plus $2,620 from my stage. ( I owe you lunch.) :)
