To My Neighbors - Vacation :(

Prev1
I don't often see the word 'vacation' followed by a frownie face! Funny what TSTO does to us. LOL

I'm not one of your neighbors, but have a fun time!

    Attention: Tappers, looks like I'll have an open spot on my list in the next day or so. Let the deluge begin! J/K.

    Sakaane, have a great time. I'll be here when you get back.

    I feel like there should be a friend maintainer thing where one of your friends looks after your town so you don't fall behind if you're without service for an extended period. I don't know any of my friends well enough to do that but I would think some of you do and some of you would help out.

    That would technically be against the terms of service, since we aren't supposed to give login information to people we trust. But, since there is a glitch that can drop anyone into a random town, maybe one of Sakaane's friends would happen to get that glitch under the right circumstances. (But not in public.)

    If that was to happen the only features they should be allow to access is tasks and taps. Money,donuts, inventory, able to move/sell/store would all be unable to be used, also can't remove or add friends but can visit to tap theirs. That's the only way something like that would be ok with having. At least that's the only thing I would be ok with, I'm sure there is something I'm forgetting to list though.

    I don't think he ment giving their log in info, I think he is refering to some kind of feature ya turn on when gone for a period of time and can designate someone off your friends list the ability to switch over to your town to do the stuff.

    I know, I was just saying. With the current rules and features and glitches.

    Maybe there should be an option to set your town as "Away", and an indicator to tell when you will be back?

    Some of my neighbors write out messages with bushes and flowers. "Back soon", "vacation", "BRB", for example.

    Nice idea. Until then we could come up with our own simple set of "signals" made by putting agreed on decorations at the landing zone in our town. Or number of such. The issue is that back at level 3, you don't have much.

    Anyone seen that done?

    lol I could do my vacation over and over and over... I'd be super rested then!

    Also: female tapper here. :)

    Thanks everybody! Believe me, I am really excited about this trip, as I need the break pretty badly. But I'm also enjoying the Stonecutter event and though I am a premium player, I like to try to complete events the 'old fashioned way'. The ideas some of you put forth about a limited friend 'maintainer' feature would be pretty neat in situations like mine.

    My camp and fishing gear are all packed and I'm headed for bed now. I'll clear my town one last time before lights out, and I should have time to do that again when I get up at the crack of dawn to get on the road.

    See you all in a week! Happy tapping. :)

    I am going on vacation! It's a camping vacation to the back country, so no wifi and no mobile data. This was planned before the event started so I'm just unlucky. It means after today (except possibly on Sunday) I won't be able to clear my Springfield and won't be able to visit any of you until I get back next Friday night/Saturday morning. :(

    I realize having active neighbors is an important part of the event but I also hope you'll be so kind as to not delete me, because as soon as I get back I'll need all the help I can get to catch up, and I'll definitely be wanting to tap in your Springfields again!

    Thanks.

    I can understand this frustration, as like many, I've been playing this ridiculously addictive game daily since Halloween. I don't even think i brush my teeth with that kind of consistency! (Lol)

    But just do what i do when i go camping: ask someone else to tap for you. It's an easier favor than "water my plants" or "walk my dog"!

    Maybe that is a business waiting to be invented: SURROGATE TAPPERS! for a nominal fee, I'll visit your town and keep your game current!

    Have a good vacation, don't forget sunscreen!
