Missing Handshakes seems to be back.

I have been experiencing the missing Handshakes glitch for the last few days - that is when a neighbour has tapped your buildings, but there is no handshake, just a $ sign.

It's not consistent - some buildings are still showing the Handshakes.

Anyone else?

(I took a quick look thru the first few pages and did not see it mentioned - if this has been mentioned recently then I apologize for missing it. I also did a search, but the threads I found were a bit old.)

  • No, not for me- although I did have that problem in the past,mostly

    Thanks neighbour @truenykitty

    It seems to be more than just those for me. :(

    It's hard to know what to clear and to leave for neighbours when I can't see exactly what has already been tapped.

    I only discovered it when I accidentally hit something that appeared to be untapped. That prompted me to clear the whole area I usually leave for neighbours, and I discovered several more.

    I'm going to start keeping track of the exact buildings that I'm not getting the handshakes for.

    Neighbours - I'm sorry if it looks like there is not much to tap in my town. I just can't determine what has already been tapped by neighbours if I don't clear everything.
  • Yea, i'm getting it too. Sometimes i'll only get 1 or 2 of the 3 a neighbor will leave. Then I'll come back in later on and the 3rd one shows up. Weird!
  • I also will go into a neighbors town and there won't be anything to tap, so I go back one town and then back into the town that didn't have anything and it'll show up! Anyway to fix this? I assume not. Always some issue with ea stuff.
  • Me too, synching with server sometimes helps - for the most part my handshakes only appear when I clear the building and see a name though.

    I'll give synching a try before tapping anything and see if it helps

    Thanks neighbour @nissa762 :)



  • I have had missing handshakes. I also had a couple double handshakes the first day of the update.
  • I hadn’t really experienced this problem in the past, but yeah, I’ve noticed this recently in my Springfield.

    Update: Synching doesn't seem to help for me. :(

  • i've been getting handshakes but about 25% of the time the black rectangle with the name disappears really quickly. Don't get a chance to read the neighbors name :D

    Something's off. My town usually has handshakes all over the place when I first login in the morning. Today I had one from @suetopia.

    Update: there is no rhyme or reason to the missing OR the visible handshakes. It seems completely random - one time a building will show the handshake over it, the next time the same building has been tapped and is not showing the handshake.

    I discovered the randomness because I was trying to create a list of buildings that were and weren't showing the handshakes, so I could post it here, and kept getting discrepancies... so no point in making a list.

    The last time I visited @IckabodSchrek was yesterday at around 9pm EST. And I tapped 3 things.

    Dee-
    Do you remember getting the other two last night? It seems rather odd that one was remaining this morning...

    :(

    I don't like hearing that it's happening to anyone, but I especially don't like hearing that my neighbours are having problems too.

    :(

    EDIT: i suppose it could be way worse, tho. This is a rather minor annoyance compared to some of the worse glitches people experience.

  • Yes I have had this happen too. I was clearing my town, there were 2 handshakes near each other, but when I tapped I saw 3 names (all the same person) come up. I have had a 'double' handshake too. I don't think that synchronising has helped in my town, as I regularly do that anyway.

  • Yes, I have the same problem. I thought perhaps my neighbors weren't visiting after having so many visit during Halloween event. Glad to know it is a common issue, so it will most likely be fixed at some point. I love visiting my neighbors, and seeing what designs they come up with.
  • @suetopia Everthing seems ok this morning. Town full of handshakes...even had a visit from @HomerND84 :o :o :o :)
