    Can I sign up as a recipient? Still plugging away but 12.5k seems a loooong way off!

    I'm happy to sign up and to continue what I've been doing all along really. Handing out eggs with little or no return, but that's ok because what else am I going to do with them?

    (8(I) Doh!

    I'm in. I don't have all of the prizes yet, but I'm well ahead. I've been whacking all 5 snakes from all 100 neighbors since I got my license, and have been handing out the eggs like, we'll, like candy eggs! I'll keep collecting and sharing until the Whacking Day promo is over.

    I just hit 4000 snakes today. Might hit the next prize tomorrow or the day after. Hoping to reach the 12,500 mark before whacking day ends but not sure if I'll manage it. Anyone with eggs to spare, it'd be much appreciated.

    I wish there was a way to directly communicate with your friends. Before starting Lisa's 5 hour task I went through all the towns to see what their count was and some people's counts are so low that I can't even tell if they just have really sh**ty luck or if they've just given up playing. If they're not playing then I don't want to give them any eggs. I've already noticed some people that haven't collected the eggs I left over a week ago so I'm not leaving anymore with them either but otherwise I try to give every single one of my towns eggs as fairly as possible (some people give me tons so they get more in return.) There has to be a better way. Anyway, I'm not collecting anymore snakes from other Springfields once I reach the last prize because my fingers need a rest from the tapa, tapa, tapa as do my eyes from the searcha, searcha, searcha but I'll distribute whatever eggs are left from collecting in town the same way I've been doing until the end of the event which I still believe will be extended and will help a lot of people out.

    I'm having some trouble myself. Anyone willing to help out with eggs they no longer need, it would be greatly appreciated and the favor returned in future events, I play and visit friends daily! Also if I'm lucky enough to get all the prizes, I will be giving all my eggs away as well. Thanks, hope to see some new friends.

    In the same spirit as our industrious billionaires who are opting to give all their wealth away to the benefit of others, I would like to announce a TO version of The Giving Pledge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Giving_Pledge).

    All members who commit to the Pledge, having secured 12500 snakes agree to give all their future eggs away to the those in need on an on-going and regular basis until the end of the Whacking Day promotion.

    I'm at about 9000 snakes, but as soon as I hit 12,500 I will make an effort to give all my eggs away to the neediest expecting nothing in return.

    Let me be the first to make the pledge.... anyone else interested?



    Who's to say that people haven't done (or doing) this already?

    I was going to put this up closer to the end so I could stroke my ego with a larger list, but I'll put this up now in hopes it inspires others. I have been gifting a serious number of eggs with very little in return. I've received an average of 7 eggs a day from others since the beginning. My partial list of members that I have contributed to(I am withholding names whom I am still friends with to keep myself anonymous) and the number of eggs they got.

    Yes, that's about 15,000 eggs(not counting the names of people I am currently friended with or the people that received a normal amount of daily egg giving of 1-10eggs). None of these were trades. In fact, I unfriended most right after giving the eggs so they couldn't give any back. Most people on the list were chosen at random from the add me threads. Some because they posted of hardship. and a few(like you) got eggs for being clever. I estimate I will be dropping 4-5000 more eggs before the end(I don't have much incentive to egg as much now).

    How the heck am I doing this?
    1. I have been playing 12-18 hours a day, everyday; over multiple accounts since the start of WD.(I have NO life)
    2. Trade with yourself. Finding a buddy is nice, but some people take too long. Wasting your time.
    3. I have purchased premium items, namely the license and the snake logs(other stuff is worthless) .
    4. I've been keeping my towns small and empty. Ugly as it may be, it makes hunting faster and reduces problems with crashes and stuttering. I'm a massive house farmer on 1 account(1500 blue houses) but removed them for WD
    5. Friend people with little towns and low levels. Looking at nicely decorated level27 towns are nice, but not for getting snakes. Little towns mean its easier to find snakes and again less crash issues. I had massive friend turnover in the beginning because I would send out hundreds of invites then dump them if their towns were not ideal. Choose friends with the intention of whacking snakes, not getting eggs.

    What most of you that are begging for eggs don't realize is how much time consuming it is to drop a substantial amount of eggs. That's why you don't get that much and that's why you need to focus on getting snakes instead of receiving eggs. And if you are going to beg for eggs, make things easy for us by clearing a section out of your town.

    Now for the losers list. These are people that I selected to receive at least 100 eggs, but could not because they unfriended me or did not respond to my invite(ha,ha):

    lazyumberto WHAT?(I was going to go back and completely blanket your town, but you unfreinded me :( With the space you had, that would have been another 2000, maybe more.)
