    For this exact same reason, I wish for a Message board as a building or a decoration you could place in your town and visitors could leave you comments on it. You could of course leave your compliment on your friend's one. This way even all the other visitors could see, what people think about certain town. How about that?

    I like that! How about a graffiti wall :D You even get righteousness points for using it, haha.

    I like this idea a lot. It would make the game more social. It is a social game!

    Panfapuffs, let me let you down easy. Your idea is practical and brilliant, and will therefore NEVER be applied to the game. Soldier, thank you for your service.

    As long as EA has some way to prevent everyone insulting some little kid who can't design Springfields that well. I liked the idea to start with, but you just have to look at the reactions on here to house farmers to imagine how out of hand things could get.

    It's a shame, cause I'd love something like this.

    Used to play Post Office when we were little. Similar to playing Doctor, but you needed a bag with a big box....

    Well, anything public would have to include the ability of the town owner to delete or hide messages. Not sure what they could do beyond that, but you can already block and report people. And quickly make space for a better class of neighbor :D

    Sadly thats a very valid point :( the mail/posts could b nasty or rude so doubt it will happen :( but they could put a complaint section in there so if someone was out of order they could file a complaint :)

    I remember it being rumoured that the post office would be to send Christmas Cards to neighbours. Sadly that never happened, maybe for Valentines Day? Bet we get Ralph for V Day too. :)

    Quite an easy solution - with a dedicated storable item, you can decide yourself if you want to put it up and let others write you something. And if you don't like the reactions, you can always hide it to storage.

    Aww boo! I also play Happy Street and they incorporated a little mailbox into their Christmas Update. C'MON EA KEEP UP.

    Ralph for Valentine's Day would be AMAZING. So many great task possibilities. Obviously his v-day quest must be called "I Choo-Choo-Choose You".

    If we was to get Ralph we gotta have a task called " I Choo Choo choose you" :mrgreen:

    Panfapuffs - you beat me to it :twisted:

    Block is good but still think there should b a complaint section just in case someone was out of order, as there could b kids playing the game which could b upsetting if slightly rude.

    I can already envision what some of my messages might say:

    "While I despise your complete lack of city planning I do enjoy the convenience of not having to look around for items to tap since they're all in one spot and you hardly ever play."

    "Annoyingly spaced out for collecting and with way too much water but nice to look at when I'm not in a tapping frenzy trying to get through 100 friends."

    "If you spent less time and money farming houses your game level might actually correspond to how far along you should be in building ownership."

    It should come as no surprise that I'm a b!+€h.

    True. But there are good and bad aspects of everything. But kids would get upset at slightly mean or inappropriate language. The rating on iTunes may need to go up because of it.
