When to delete neighbors?



  • I delete them if i struggle to find buildings to click on in my visits to them. really annoys me spending that extra time searching for buildings. I have a full neighbour list after going through a big clean up and re-stock last month. have 6 friends waiting but don't want to reject them as if i find some people who aren't playing/low level i'll delete them and add one from the waiting list :D
  • delete them before they delete you :|

    Okay. I think I will be doing some deleting and trying to add some forum members here. I think it's more fun to have neighbors that are active on forums because you hear some thoughts on how and why they design things at times.
  • I just did a big clean up....deleted everyone that hadn't logged in over 3 weeks. Some long time friends, I'll give more leeway.
    Level 939 - play almost every hour.

    At this point in the event, if I have neighbors that haven't started playing, I check how many weeks inactive and then start deleting. I said goodbye to some long time players this event that have disappeared. Annette and Yukongirl come to mind...That bummed me out, but I dont want to visit a town with nothing to tap - and Id rather open my friend list to other players - so they can enjoy the majesty of my towns design. Its actually very considerate of me. :D
  • 1 week of inactivity and I unfriend them.

    I just had a neighbor start up again after being gone for over a week. I can understand that people may need to delete neighbors after a week, but I am glad that I didn't delete them.

    I tend to delete faster if during an event, if Act 1 is 5 days old and they haven't started, off they go. Between events I usually wait 4 to 6 weeks in case of illness or vacations.
    Unsolicited friends requests are all denied.Please PM me.

    I usually delete neighbors who haven't played in over 20 weeks & up. I've had people not play for 3 or 4 months and start playing again, so I give it a little more time. But if they have a well designed town, I keep them a little longer.
  • When they bore me ;)
  • During non events, even long term friends, I'll keep them, but come an event, if they don't play within the first week, the newer players are toast. I usually give a long term friend the benefit of the doubt, but if they haven't played by act 2, toast like for them. I want active players, especially during an event. What good is it to keep someone on, if they haven't played in a long time?
  • Not "toast like" was supposed to be "toastville". Geez!

    6 to 8 weeks for active players who have been regular and stop... 4 weeks for players that I've noticed a pattern of regularly not playing for weeks at a time inside and outside of events.

    I rarely delete but did recently during this event, taking time to visit and not having buildings to click gets frustrating. Some of my neighbors haven't played in over a year. I figure they're not coming back lol. I usually visit, check out their place, if I like their town I give it a bit. I probably think way to much about it
