    Guessing you don't have this problem...

    It's important to some of us because we can't determine what has and hasn't been tapped by neighbours.

    Some of us like to leave things for them to tap, and when you don't know what has and has not been tapped, it's hard to know what is okay to clear and what isn't. It's frustrating. And it's been going on for a long time now.

  • Actually I'm not convinced that clearing at my end (regular clearing not clearing friends handshakes) really has an effect. I mean, I have cleared 24 hr buildings, collected rent and the friends handshake. While I was still in the game, about half hour later (and 23.5 away from normal rent collection) it had another handshake on it.
    Which means someone clearly tapped it before it was "ready for collection"
    I can even tell ya the 2 diff friends as they visit often so it wasn't a case of "maybe that happened"
    So was that a gliche or what? Maybe they can't be tapped by neighboureenos until a few pennies have built up but don't think my collecting the rents leave the building impotent to neighbour visits.
    Just my experience. Granted I can't explain how sometimes I visit others and they have nothing available to tap, even with 100 friends there are more then 300 available things to tap generally.
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.

    For new players, it prevents them from getting friendship points. If there is no handshake, it doesn't count towards the total. For my crawl town, I would wake up some mornings with no handshakes, but a full set of names. I probably only got half, if that, of the friendship points I should have.

    So is this the same Stackable Handshskes, that was so beneficial in converting Xp to donuts that caused an uproar on the forums awhile ago. I'm just curious because, I can't tell if it's the same glitch, or not glitch depending on what side of the debate you chose to take. I don't really remember what the final word on whether it was a glitch, cheating, exploit etc... but I know they finally fixed it and put an end to it, because it was too good and people talked about it too much. Are their any donut benefits to this latest handshakes situation, or is it just a glitch.

    Stackables is not the issue most of us are having. And no - no donut benefits.

    As the title says - it's missing handshakes.

    Sorry. I thought I read on one of these threads that multiple handshakes had made a return. I guess it wasn't this one. :)

    No worries. :)

    I think someone did mention stackables in here. :)

    I didn't see any screen captures of the issue here. So, here are some screen captures of the issue.

    The handshake icon has all but disappeared for me for a long time now and I’ve pretty much given up worrying about EA fixing it. Sorry neighbors… I try :/
