I wonder if anyone else is having the same problem - although tapping on prospectors in my town gets the badges/guns/hats, about 30% of the time I don't get the neighbour's name. With limited numbers of prospectors to drop into neighbours' Springfields I concentrate on neighbours who've dropped prospectors into my Springfield. Apologies to friends if you think I'm being unfriendly for not returning the favour. :oops: :oops:
Before tapping on the prospector try visiting a friends town and returning. Its a pain but that is what works for me.
