I am an idiot....

Interesting! I feel asleep a few times with the phone in my hand and tapped out open. But nothing really happened so far except for tapped out draining my phones battery for two hours... I'm going to be more careful from now on though!

Perhaps you could contact EA and have them restore your town, but I personally would take it as a chance and just redesign :)

    I'm currently on live chat with EA trying to get it restored. Here's hoping! I just don't have time to redo it. Although the person on live chat seems to be struggling with the concept of what I'm telling him. He's sending it to someone to fix apparently. I wonder how long this will take? :roll:

    I don't fully get what you're saying either. So you did it in your sleep? Or in a sleep-deprived state? 'cause you have to press the button at least four times, so it's not like it can happen by accident. If this person can't do it, maybe try again but just say your kid did it.

    Longtime lurker here..... Been playing since just before whacking day....

    Logged off last night. Put my phone on charge next to my bed, as usual, and went to sleep.....

    Woke up at 2.30am to find my phone back on, tapped out open again and my WHOLE FREAKING TOWN nuked :shock:

    I'm gutted, it's going to take me weeks to get everything back out of my inventory...

    On the plus side, I did find 3 parcels that were lost :lol:

    My conclusion.... Sleep tapping is NOT a good idea :roll:

    please tell me your not on zolpidem (sleepingpils that make you sleepwalk, or in this case sleeptap lol)
    seriusly, watch out with them

    I totally agree! Kids make great scapegoats. I know this from long experience. (And if you have no kids, make some up. That's even better -- scapegoats you don't have to feed. )

    welcome to the forum. Horrible story. Try to get someone to call you back from the Austin support center. Thats your best bet for getting your town rolled back. Keep us posted!

    I can only assume that I was fast asleep when I did it, as I have no recollection whatsoever of pressing buttons (and for the record I'm not taking any sleeping meds!)

    Still waiting to hear from support. I've kept playing while I wait and I now have festive cbg so not sure if I even want them to roll it back now :roll:

    Urrrghhhhhhhh :shock: :shock:

    Still waiting to hear back from them... If they roll it back now, I'm going to be behind by at least 24 - 36 hours. I'm not sure what to do...

    I'm off to sleep now.... Hopefully no more sleeptapping :oops:

    TRUTH. I've been told things I did while on Zolpidem. Things I thought I dreamed turned out to be real, and not always good or nice things!!!
