People seem to like to hide presents in the worst spots. I even use the tool that makes the buildings see through and I still can't find some of them.

Please make an update where if 24 hours go's by and a present isn't tapped. The dropper looses 10 wreaths and the the town he hid it in gains 5.

This is becoming an event for trolls. If the events are going to continue like this. I'll just erase the app off my device.

Most events are like this.
Dont let the door hit you on the way out :D

    I've collected all of the prizes and craft-ables from act one and I had very little help from gifters. The daily quests and giving gifts should be enough to get the job done.

    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.

    Aren't presents dropped randomly when you tap the icon?

    I have had presents drop in bad spots even though I took care when I tried to drop them, and except for a few in the beginning, am never naughty. They seem to have a mind of their own. Can't always blame the dropper.

    So punish someone because they took the time to give you a gift and you can't find it? It's not the persons fault that the gift went behind a building or the mountain range or in the water...

    In almost every case they aren't doing it on purpose. They don't receive anything unless you find them.

    "Your fired" :x

    Dumped all my neighbours because they couldn't follow simple instructions, my house on it's own with nothing around it for 3 blocks, and they still dump the pressies in built up areas. :twisted:

    I'll just stick with family :roll:

    Hey neighbor, thanks for all your help. Drop them anywhere, I'll find it!

    You seriously think people are purposely trying to hide one of their five presents?

    Okay.

    I think some might becuase when I find them they are alway naughty gifts and usually by the same person. They may miss out of the benefits of not getting any bows in return, but then their town isn't clogged up with presents that can't be found. They are still able to receive gifts you and I are not until we find. And I've been experiment with dropping and have yet to have one land very far off the mark. It's not like tap all, the presents are not rolling away, LOL. Who knows, maybe some of our neighbors are 10 year old kids and think it's funny. They probably don't take the game as serious as some of us vets. I still have neighbors from back when I was a noob. I have no clue who some of them are but I've kept them because they've been good neighbors up until this event. I'm not losing sleep over it but I've got one hidden one again I think. Out of gifts to test in feeders until tomorrow.

    yes so look for open space first then tap. I even bring the screen in tight for even better accuracy in my drops. I have not accidently had one hide yet and if did I would PM the person and tell them where I left it. I accidently hit naughty on a gift as I'm playing nice except to my feeder drops and PMed the person, apologized then left them 2 gifts next time I could.

    I "hid" my first gift last night.

    One the first neighbors I gave a (nice) gift to decided to be Nasty. I never re-visited him. On the leaderboard his bar is nearly entirely Nasty.

    Last night I needed to get rid of one more gift and my preferred neighbors were all full. So I went to the neighbor mentioned above and dropped a Nasty gift in a far off corner, right behind a snowman.

    It actually felt good doing that.

    They should make the presents stick to the Present Depot. They bring that thing back for free every year until this one, and now it has a nice premium payout.

    I just accidentally hid a present. I was aiming for a nice empty space and it dropped behind the only building nearby. I've had some in my town dropped in my landing zone but lost in Homer's decorating extravaganza.

    sometimes you can tell when people hide them... especially if they've chosen naughty instead of nice. I have a clear landing zone for people... anything outside of that, I'm figuring is on purpose. And yes, I unfriended that person (their bar was fully red anyway).
