Calling it quits

I've been a two times a day player since the beginning, but after a year or more of cookie-cutter quests I've deleted the game from my tablet. I can remember when quests were varied and interesting; of late they're just dull. So I've called it quits, just like the developers and programmers of the game have done.
At least I took advantage of various mistakes on their part, and have a 9248.00% bonus, so I guess we are even.
How do you get such a large bonus? I’ve got everything else conquered but it takes 12 Rat trap trucks to get about 48 donuts. Not that I’m complaining, just looking for the way to get that bored with the game too
There was an event where the wailing wall, which grants a 2.25% bonus, was on sale for coins (instead of donuts). I bought as many as I could before they corrected it. The same thing happened on a later event where the burning bush (0.5%) was also on sale for coins only.
Nothing, my wife stopped playing over 3 years ago and her Springfield is exactly how she left it the day she quit (I keep her as a neighbour incase she decides to play again), I had a break from the game for around 18 months and when I logged back in I just picked up from where I left it.
Yes, among many, many, many other issues. That is probably the most impactful part. I have to go to the City Hall and scroll through my 450+ characters to find who I need a lot of the time. If they could only fix that one issue, I'd be thrilled.
Agree with you 100%, not really bothered about all the other stuff that the glitch broke and reset back to the start but not being able to use the character finder is rather annoying to say the least.
Step away for a week or a month.
I still enjoy playing, even though the shine has definitely lost it's luster over the years. I keep playing because I like The Simpsons and that I've played so long now, that I want to be here if the game gets pulled, or they stop updating it (probably will never happen). And to just sit here and chat with the people still kicking about, reminiscing about the good times, and singing American Pie when the game goes under.

This was actually my second time through the game. My previous Springfield was maximum sized, with over 1000% bonus, maximum level, over 2000 blue houses and a huge closed-end monorail system. I blew it all up when it became apparent to me that there was nowhere to go and started again with a different user ID. I can't say the game was not, at its best, a pleasure to use and build. If EA ever decides to restore it to top priority could someone send me an email? I'd love to see it again in its prime!
Here! Here! I spend a lot of my downtime building, designing, redecorating….and I enjoy going to friends towns to see their designs, layouts and creativity.
I do miss squashing things and neighbour play.
