    You get 5-1 hearts your friend get 2 hearts per tap 5=2 hearts- 1=2 hearts. Verified by me.

    Yep, you get 2 hearts when visited, it's not related to how many hearts the visit gives to your neighbor. EA has lots of flaws but they did this right at least..the only problem is that people > s sometimes are forgotten, when you get there you already got 95% of the hearts you can get by visiting and you already spend half an hour there, so..

    I've been doing something similar too. The people that usually have no hearts to give, at least for me, are in the beginning of the list, which would imply that most people are clicking from the start and moving forward then give up somewhere near the middle. So I do my part by helping the middle and back more. I also haven't been going to Other Springfield except as my starting point when I go in reverse. Beats having to scroll through all those pages.

    I have an account with a letter that starts at the end of the alphabet and I have this town that begins with 00. I don't see significant difference in hearts, TBH.

    I am in the N section and everyday all the characters I have get letters. Also I am level 38 so I have a lot of characters.

    My town is an S and I'm doing just fine for neighbor visits. I set aside half an hour at night when everybody else is asleep and I'm bored to go through and get everybody - I either do them all or none. That said, I did finish the wheel tonight so I might only keep up the religious tapping for a couple of days longer, we'll see.

    Utter foolishness. If they did a random order like before then the folks that by chance randomly ended up at the beginning of the list would have the advantage. Then those players that started with A,B,C, etc. that ended up at the end of the friend list would cry foul like you are doing now.

    Your argument is moot and doesn't exactly address the issue whatsoever. Your argument should include a workable fair solution. Such as; EA needs to have a pseudo random friend list that loads in a different order every time you access your friends list. The algorhythm would also have to be developed to take into account the friends you may not have had time to visit in the days prior.

    I guess when all is said and done, life is just not fair.

    That also means that you don't have to have 100 neighbors. For me, I am cleaning my list as I go. I start with my closest friends and those that have given me hearts, then I go down the list to the Z. I can come back if I still have time to tap, if not then I go back the day after. It is a really nice feature from Origin to know when was the last time a neighbor was playing. It helps the cleaning process. :)

    I'm Confused.
    You visit, neighbor gets 6 hearts
    They visit, you get 6 hearts
    "Bonus Hearts" give new players with only a few friends the same opportunity to participate and win prizes, on the same level as someone with 100 friends.
    Sounds fair to me.
    So if your only visiting until you reach the 1 heart per action stage, your only visiting 40 friends a day.
    I know that if I was one the 60 friends that wasn't worth a visit, I'd be a little ticked.

    so, in case you add me I will never receive a V-card from you, because I am normally at 1/3 of every list...

    I'm aware of the alphabetical listings now, so i devised a **** plan...

    those that visit and tap regularly in my town get top priority and will be first (5 hearts), when that 30 actions is used up, 4 hearts after that, i then work alphabetically until i'm done. i know it may sound unfair, but i think it's right to do it that way as i appreciate those who do take time to visit and tap on characters in my SF :-)
