    I think that it's more of an indication of whether a player is active or not. Anyone without decorated houses at this point simply isn't playing the game regularly enough to stay in the friends list of those of us who play like maniacs and have only so much space to share.

    In my opinion yes. The Simpson mansion regenerates in less than a minute. So they can get three coins if they take their time.
    Personally, I want as much decorations as fast as possible. You'll have plenty of time to get the more expensive buildings. If you worry about that, make sure to get 100 friends. That's 300 coins a day.

    I'm keeping friends as long as the Simpson house is decorated, so I'm sure you'll be fine.

    There should be plenty of time to decorate all of your houses and make the other Santa Coin purchases. No worries. I look for neighbors to at least have the Christmas Tree placed and have their Simpson family working on coin quests. The vast majority of people, of course, are working on the Christmas quest. I've only had to delete a few folks who stayed away for a week or so.

    phew ! Thanks to all of you for making me feel better about the situation I only have one brown house to answer that question but I gather that I should be ok and should hit up the Christmas add me thread as I only have about 50 or so friends at the moment. Shameless plug here but my name is the same here as it is in the game Wink wink hahaha

    Just having the Simpsons house is enough for me. I can wait the 2 1/2 minutes to collect.

    I want to be able to pop in and get three decorated houses in about a minute. If I can't, you're off my friends list. I'm not waiting and I'm not coming back a second time.

    One is enough, imo. As long as you have the Simpsons house decorated, you're good to go.

    Well I'd say as long as you have enough for a visiter to get 3 coins...

    So atleast 3 houses, along with the tree and maybe one or two more houses chances are they could

    Personally I'm happy enough if someone only had the simpsons house...just Wait like 45 seconds and you can collect a coin from it again

    For some reason, all of my coin collecting is at midnight. I wish we could reset the timer, I have no idea how it ended up that way. One day I'm going to have to skip a day and do it at a more reasonable hour, but for now, I'm forced to stay up late to get coins.

    I want to be in and out quick so no, that wouldn't be enough for me. It could take me 3 minutes to collect coins from you and when I want to go to bed, that is tiring. :)

    I have all of my houses decorated and 20 brown houses for people.

    Yeah, if I can see a decorated house or two, then that tells me that the player is active and at least making an effort - especially if I see Homer, Bart, Lisa, or Ned on their visible Christmas quests. I can't expect everyone to be a fanatic. :)

    If I see a Springfield that doesn't even have the Simpsons house decorated, and all the characters are wandering around and not on any quests, well...

    All you have to do is post here in any post and suddenly you get a bunch of requests. I'm considering putting in my signature that I have 100 friends and cannot accept anymore so please stop sending me invitations. Partly my fault for posting in a couple of add me threads but those posts are buried now so I'm sure the requests aren't generating from there.

    Anyways.

    I think 4 is enough, long as you have the Simpsons, Flanders, and a couple of brown houses decorated then that should be enough for most people. It is for me. I delete people when they only have the Simpsons, Flanders and something that doesn't generate coins frequently generated. Sorry, but with 100 friends I kind of don't have the time to wait for that Simpsons house to keep regenerating.

    I appreciate when folks have rapid regenerating decorations directly placed when I drop in. I am a little willing to look for a regenerated decoration if it's obvious that they might exist, but if there's nobody home and no decorations then it's off the list. A few brown houses goes a long way to keep me happy right now.

    Won't work. I've had that in my sig for a few days now, and I'm still getting tons of requests all day long. If you post here, people are going to invite you. I don't think most of them even read the content of the posts/sigs, they just look at your name and invite you.

    Last two days i deleted those who didnt have Simpsons house and is not doing the quest. Today will be deleting if they just have only Simpsons house decorated.

    The second quest, if i,m not mistaken, gives you enough coins to be able to get more decorated houses without problem. Its also an indication if the player is really active for the holiday
