A second on towns coming back after a restart. My first town reset to level one through a synching error, then, when I chose the option to play anyway, it restarted at the cut scene where Homer blows up the plant. I did the same as Melody, turning it off before it could save over the existing town. I wasn't as lucky as she was with the town coming back immediately after, though - two months of sitting in tech support later, I got it back (with an email saying that it had been accessible all along if only I had chosen the option to play...sure).
So apparently this can happen. I totally agree that not playing over your town is a very very good idea.
Crumbs - I had no idea about this...! Been merrily logging in and out of both my towns hourly all day, and all yesterday evening. Noticed the jumbled friends list but... blimey. Right. So - do we think EA will have stopped new incidences of the glitch happening?

9) Hadn't even started new quests for swanky fish. The update applied and went through the introduction text as usual, but I was waiting on Lisa to finish her homework. About 20 minutes passed between home and work. Then Origin asked me if I had a Level 1 town...that was it. Nothing since then.
