I have a ghost amongst my neighbours

Strangest thing, I have a neighbour's town that I can visit (and I don't mean the other Springfield before anyone starts) that neither appears on my Origin friend's list nor is it in its correct alphabetical place amongst the other towns.

Is anyone else experiencing this and do you know how to remove them?

I have before, had somebody whose town was completely out of alphabetical order and I couldn't find them on the friends list to remove them. They were a massive house farmer causing me to crash when I visited them so I wanted to delete them. Finally logged into the Origin Client on my PC and just blocked their name and that got rid of them.

My son has an interesting one. I had sent a friend invite to somebody on the add-me thread. They never accepted or declined, I can see them in the pending list....I can search for their name....yet every time I try to add their name to the ban list to get them off the pending list? The game tells me they don't exist! What? But I see them!

    Works so much better for friend management, especially deletion of invites

    Oh no, it's all going a little bit paranormal today. I just tried sending a reply and the comment couldn't be saved and then I was thrown into an old thread that I had never previously visited :| (I also now find that there is no emoticon for scared. I think I may have chosen one that depicts someone taking a *)

    I have a couple friends that do this. I think they have 2 usernames, either to have 2 Springfields or one for the Simpsons and one for another origin game.

    I have had this happen quite a bit. I looked at the towns and looked at my friends list and started matching names and would get to where that town should be and found a different name. deleted that friend and the town went with them. Somehow some people's towns do not match their usernames.

    Yes, but why would that be cause for removing them?

    I suffer from OCD and cannot stand the fact that they are out of alphabetical order. No, in truth I have had to cut back on friends to stabilise my game and they are sadly one of the towns that I wish to cut back on. I hope this satisfies your nosiness :wink:
