Are you unfriending neighboors who are repeatidly naughty?

Prev1
No. They only have five presents per day, so I am just glad that they chose to give me one of the precious few presents anyway. If I deleted them, I may get none at all.

But my neighbors have generally been very nice. I only recall two who were naughty. And I am very slow to delete neighbors. I still have some who haven't played the game in over a year.

    I guess the 8 options really.

    You give a nice gift and your friend picks nice. You should continue giving gifts to that friend.
    You give a nice gift and your friend picks naughty. You should not give any more gifts to that friend.
    You give a naughty gift and your friend picks nice. You should continue giving gifts to that friend.
    You give a naughty gift and your friend picks naughty. You should not give any more gifts to that friend.

    You receive a gift that is nice and you click nice. You should continue opening gifts
    You receive a gift that is nice and you click naughty. You should continue opening gifts.
    You receive a gift that is naughty and you click nice. You should continue opening gifts.
    You receive a gift that is naughty and you click naughty. You should continue opening gifts.

    If you click naughty on a gift you may get more ribbons but that person will never give you another gift. So I think you have to click nice when someone gives you a gift as to encourage them to give you more gifts. If they give you a nice gift you are up 15 ribbons verses zero if they didn't give you a gift. If they give you a naughty gift you are up 1 ribbon verses zero. The one negative about naughty gifts is that if someone gives you five you cannot receive any more gifts til you click them. I think it might be a problem most of us would like to have.... 5 ribbons is much better that my usually zero ribbons.

    The real problem I see is the lack of ability to communicate between your friends. You should be able to tell your friends that you prefer no gifts to naughty ones. I prefer any gift to no gift myself.

    LOL well why delete that one person who gave me a naughty present, when that was the first present in 3 days. At least I got one bow!

    No, but I've hidden them so I don't accidentally drop a present on them. It's great that they want to "help" me by dropping naughty presents on me, but I'm certainly not wasting one of my precious precious 5 gifts on them if I know they're going to be naughty.

    Well I guess I won't actually delete them... But I will stop sending them gifts.

    not dropping anyone (just not giving any of my 5 gifts to the naughty neighbors)... like others have said, I'm just glad they keep choosing to give me one (or more) of their 5 gifts each day versus giving them to one of their other neighbors...

    maybe it's because my bar shows 100% nice, so they want to exploit that for the maximum gain.... maybe they're behind on their bow count and need to catch up... maybe they're just greedy :twisted: whatever the reason, they can keep picking me all they want.... my handful of 100% nice neighbors will keep benefiting from me by getting my gifts (and since that list is so small, it's easier to get some to all of them repeatedly, as long as they have room for them when I swing by)

    Reghardless whether someone plays naughty or nice, it seems foolish to delete an active playing neighbour.

    Asside from the first day, I am playing nice. I like to reward those people who play nice.
    I just look on the score board who are predominantly nice, and I give those people presents (those who gave me presents first). That's a few clicks and then my presents are done.

    The main reason to do it this way is that we have so few presents. If we had more presents I would not mind playing the nice/naughty game. It just is not much interest to me at the current rate.

    The neighbor presents are such a non-factor in this event, that to unfriend someone over this seems shallow, imo.

    I never thought of that before... I guess a high "nice score" could attract naughty players.

    I'll be deleting my naughty neighbors once the gift exchange ends.

    If they think they're exploiting me, thats fine for now as I'm still collecting something from them, which is better than nothing.

    But once event ends, they are getting the boot. I don't like greedy selfish people. AT ALL.

    Im faced with the same choice they are, with each present i share. And i choose each time, to be cooperative, rather than exploitive.

    I don't want people who can't draw this same conclusion as neighbors.

    The only exception is one neighbor who gives me two nice for each naughty. They are obviously trying to maximize their return without being too selfish. I'm OK with that.
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    I posted this in another related topic....



    There is a flaw with the idea that if you get 1 bow that's one more than 0. There is a limit to how many presents can be dropped on you in a day. Wouldn't you rather have nice friends who drop you 15?

    I have too many friends and neighbor visits are tiring in an event. You only get Santa hats from viewing a few of them. so, i'm dropping my naughty neighbors. They can always find new friends. It's a called a friend list. Not an enemy list. Your friends shouldn't be taking points from you.

    You can't compare 1 actual present to any amount of possible but not yet dropped presents.

    You can only compare the output of actual dropped presents. Which would be any one box that a neighbor already dropped. Will it be naughty or nice? Will it yield 1-5 or 15-25? But if you delete that person, any box they would drop automatically =0.

    Remember them, collect their single bows, then kick them to the curb after the event.

    I'd say to peak at the list of friends that gave you nice presents and just return those. You can also see how they stack up to other friends by looking at the leaderboard. Those that are all red are just pure naughty givers - so never give them gifts.

    I've just adopted to always drop "nice" and always open "nice". Rather than risking any possible losses. There's a recent summary on the bottom of the menu, so if you see your reward was 1 bow - simply don't give that neighbor any presents. Those that are 15, return those gifts to them.

    My current plan is to go through my list and try to give everyone at least 1 present. If I still have time after that, I'll check my list for the ones who were nice to me and send them more.

    The opportunity cost swings both ways. The naughty neighbor may never send you another one. By keeping that neighbor, you are preventing a replacement neighbor from giving you any presents. Even if you had a guarantee that the naughty neighbor would send you ten more presents, you'd only need one present from a nice neighbor to be better off.

    I am fortunate that I have good neighbours but I noticed some of them give naughty presents, I am fine with that, it's part of the game, like katcheson8934 said only deleting neighbours who haven't played for a while.

    I always drop nice and open nice, but everyone is entitled to play it there own way.

    I find it kind of funny how picky people are with their neighbours.

    Every event there seems to be a new reason to drop neighbours...

    Reasons like: They are naughty, they have too many formless terrors, they have house farms, they graffiti my buildings (which is totally ridiculous), etc, etc.

    I like my fellow neighbours and don't give a crap if they are naughty or nice :P
