    What did we learn? Loose Lips Sink Ships........
    :evil:

    In the future - Most of us have "short lists" of trusted forum friends that we share these gems with via PM, and as we don't all have the same list - the gem can spread pretty far...... But we have learned speaking aloud in the public forum gets it removed - rather quickly usually................ Even when we try to be clever and "cajun glass" it.......... so we moved to PM.
    How does one get on these short lists? Make friends. Real ones that you talk with, not just people you obligate yourself to visit their town for the game friends..... you'll be on a list. And probably tone down the talk of I'll speak my mind on the forum - that attitude - on this subject - won't get you on a list likely......

    Understand, its being protected, the quieter we move on it - the longer it lasts


    And - BTW - for the few I am on the short list of...... Thank you my friends, I did learn a little late in the play - but I Seriously appreciate you keeping me as part of your loop
    PM me- I DO need Good Neighboreenos currently

    I am surprised it lasted as long as it did. EA must not have seen the original post about it.

    I never realised there was-just scrolled back through and found it-less than 600 people actually read that post! It just goes to show that some things can slip through the net. Thanks for earlier though Meinaz.

    It's funny how ea is fast as hell to patch something if they see a post when it's in their best interest but if it's a broke premium item we need fixed it takes ages.


    Hmmmmm interesting isn't it. Hmmm.....homer-simpson-zoned-out.gif

    And what was the glitch? I have no idea what it was, or read anything about it here.

    Posting things like this in an EA forum is why. Think before you post.

    It is gone forever, so posting about it now doesn't matter. I didn't know it existed until today so I never used it.



    Well then you should be happy that you didn't cheat, I really wish they would take action against people town that exploit glitchs.

    Other people please need to keep in mind there are other benefits to the patch. I was not able to log into my game before this patch, since the Valentine's Update was launched. I was not the only person who experienced the exact same issue, as some others posted. However, since this update came through, I was able to log into my game for the first time since then. There are always changes that not everyone notices.

    The glitch was when you completed a daily challenge, instead of claiming the reward you would go to a neighbours town, click on their daily challenge building, and claim your reward from there. Then you would go back to your town and return a neighbours town and repeat until infinity. This allowed you to claim unlimited amounts of donuts or SH items or whatever you were bring offered by the daily challenges. I hope I explained that clearly. :D

    I was tardy to the party and found out about it after the patch update on my game. Oh well stuff happens.

    And this feeling is another reason it went underground.... I don't feel the need to re-debate this, so I'll leave it at that

    I happened to stumble on this one late in the game just by going about my normal neighbor visits. I'm apparently not on anyones list (except maybe Santa's naughty list).

    Forum is not really that helpful if you all are gonna be all secretive and Stonecutter about important stuff. If everyone never posts then how will we know about it??

    Honestly, the forum is objectively helpful. People will answer your questions about (basic) gameplay and for me LPNs walkthrough are a must read every update/event.

    Aidx explained the glitch a couple of posts above yours. You complete your daily challenge for donuts in your town, go to a friends town and click their daily challenge building, collect your prize, go back to your town and repeat.

    As for glitches; People who aren't able to exploit feel like they're left out/missing out on something and there's no changing that. I can understand how it could rub someone the wrong way.

    Then there are people who stumble across/find them and share it with people who they trust, which is understandable. I'm sure most people would do the same so the advantage could be kept as long as possible; I know I would.

    I myself haven't gotten anything out of it since I'm a quiet tapper and don't mingle a lot. For people like me the hints on the forum are really the only way to gain an advantage like this and for this I'm grateful.

    In the end we can't turn back time. Just keep an eye on the forum and grab what's in reach. Either way you're only able to gain donuts, not lose them.
