    I've spotted a giant yellowy-dragon looking ghost on a couple of springfields recently - what is it? And, more importantly, how do you get it? I've tried to upload/insert a picture of it, but I've got no idea how this BB code stuff works.

    I don't know how to do spoiler blocks, so I'll just say that you'll get that yellowy-dragon looking ghost as you progress in the normal quest line. :)

    Edit: I also don't know how to type fast enough on a touch screen keypad, either. :p

    A simple search will help find anything. I'm not trying to be mean, but we are getting at least 10 of these threads a day.

    Here's a picture of what you're seeing:

    As others have said, this is Ghost Maude (which you'll unlock once you have progressed far enough into the main Halloween questline) on her 24 hour Haunt Springfield task. You'll see a lot of her, and perhaps use a lot of her during this event, because that task earns Goo.

    Oh dear LORD where is the thumbs up, or the like, or the plus one, or whatever!?!?

    I just can't imagine why people keep asking this...and why people keep ANSWERING. I mean, if they didn't read the three threads on the front page asking the very same question, what leads one to believe they are going to read your answer? If they didn't get the answer the first 99 times, trust me, the 100th ain't the charm.

    People keep asking as the search will bring up tons of different things from a number of different message boards - and these boards are so active that threads disappear off the first few pages very quickly, so it can be very difficult to find answers to a question. OK, perhaps it is lazy to post a question when the answer might be on the fifth or sixth page or whatever, but so what? if the question bothers you, don't answer it!

    Dont let them get to you. it was a good question. Keep asking away the polite forum members will answer away

    and the search function doesnt work as great as people would think. If you dont do a specific search you will get a bunch of vague crap.

    Sherry what would you search to get to the what the hell is this thread? Give the guy a break. no need to be rude. :twisted:

    Appreciated antiflag! Nice to be nice and all that, and the rapid responses from the majority was also gratefully received! I do like how 90% of the posters on here are always keen to answer questions without fuss - or delay!

    Plus one......I've been playing well over a year and I can not often find what I want to
    know on the message board search function. AND I think it's plain rude of the moderators to move or combine a question you have asked without PM'ing you to tell you where to find the answer you wanted. I am glad they are so brilliant they never need to ask someone else.

    Lately when posts/threads are moved or joined you will get a pm. That might have started with the recent forum upgrades.

    As I said I wasn't trying to be mean. But searching "yellow ghost" gets a response easily. How else would you describe it? It's yellow. "Giant ghost" also works, as it is pretty big compared to the others.

    On the other hand, "Giant yellow ghost" gets you nothing. :twisted:

    I answered your question. And I was polite. I just wish your OP had included "I tried searching but couldn't find the answer"; before you asked the question. Good forum etiquette includes not adding numerous posts about the same thing. It adds to the threads disappearing off the first page as you said.

    I'm glad I found this thread . As I had some personal problems and couldn't play as much as I wanted and couldn't come to the forum. I kept seeing this weird ghost while visiting neighbors and wondered how to get one :) I'm trying to catch up with all the latest stuff, there's too much info, too many posts too read .

    Actually, I didn't even notice Maude had tasks, found out today tapping her by accident.

    Another tip to throw out there....be a little more descriptive in the thread title. That makes it easier to search. What would be a better title: What is this thing? OR I keep seeing a large yellow/orange ghost, what is it?

    :mrgreen: :twisted:
