Donut confirmation after the update

Don't forget to change your donut confirmation button back on after the update. I lost a few donuts probably to a brown house because this preference was "accidentally" removed during the update. As a former software analyst and QA manager I find it hard to believe that this user preference setting can't be saved between updates. I mean my sound and music settings have always carried through every update. Something smells like fish donuts to me.
of course ea resets it everytime u know how many donuts were spent cause of that right?

    Thanks for the reminder.

    I had read about this occuring in the past, so I have always been diligent to check the confirmation status after every update (even small ones), but have always found it to be set correctly.

    Even so, I will continue to always check, because it seems if it happens to others, it is likely to happen to my game at some point too and as the saying goes, "better safe than sorry".

    Too bad they are not willing to just set a request for confirmation as a standard/mandatory default.

    Agreed. I have never had any trouble with this, but it's good to remind people after every update!

    Curious as to what you all play on. I've never had to reset my confirm spend, I play on android. I'm wondering if this is an apple-only issue.

    I play on an iPhone 4S. It's never been reset for me. From previous threads it doesn't seem to be platform dependent.

    I play on an iPhone5 and never had this issue, but my daughters game on an iPhone4 has had this issue happen once or twice

    well there goes that theory. I'd love to find the common denominator here.

    I play on both Android and Apple, never have this reset problem on either but always check after reading the horror stories on here. A woman I work with who plays DOES have to fix it every update, she plays on an iPad.
    Thanks for reminding people!

    I had it happen to me a few updates ago, but the last few that setting has been persistent. It might have just been a bug with a previous update.
