    Thank god not yet. LOL I haven't accidentally tapped it not once yet and I'm glad because I would not waste donuts to speed it up so if I ever did I would have to wait 2 1/2 days but then again I think I am over the 153 tile limit so it just might not let me build tile again if I accidentally tap it now.

    I tapped my previous lonely, unvisited tile on purpose so I could get another one going. The new one is ready and I am being very careful so I don't tap it by accident and have to wait another 2 1/2 days to see if my Squidport can get some neighborly love or if I will have to rename it "Lonely Hearts Pier".

    You need to add a "yes, and now I'm screwed because I'm over the max and can't make anymore"

    I thought it would be quite a few of us that would click once too often.
    My theory is that this is an evil plot by EA to get us to use donuts. LOL!
    :D

    You may be onto something. As you know I blew it not once, but twice actually and spent 36 donuts rushing my 3 day tile!

    But I have made at least that many or more from this event, so I wasn't upset for too long.

    I have a slightly different take on EA's delay in fixing this glitch. Tiles cost fake money. Donuts are often purchased with real money. The ONLY way EA profits is through sales of donuts. The more tiles we have, the more empty space we have to fill ... and the greater our desire to develop it ... With ... Lots of stuff. Many of the bells-and-whistles for Squidport cost donuts.

    Squidport BTG ("Before The Glitch") required me to first buy increasingly expensive water and THEN increasingly expensive tiles, which ticked me off enough not to buy into it. The odds are much higher now that EA will get some actual profit from my purchase of premium stuff for my Squidport. Good business policy for EA, imho.

    (I visit 100 people a day. I've gotten 4 or 5 donuts total from those visits since this event began.. Apparently the TSTO gods hate me.)

    .

    And I wonder if you are correct as well. Did the spending on Squidport just pretty much go away because of all the other stuff going on? So maybe this was a great idea to regenerate lost interest in a section of the game. Or maybe they finally realized waiting 3 days for one little tile was pretty ridiculous. I'm not sure. But it has definitely gotten my interest back to that side of my town. I do plan a redesign after I am finally loaded up on so many tiles and Halloween event is over.

    I actually started towards the end of Thanksgiving last year, anyone know how long of a break there was between the two events? Any at all?

    You wouldn't believe how long it takes me to figure out my multiplier. Days! Because I always forget not to tap on Gulp n Blow.

    The Aztec is good for calculating bonus as well. It's $200 normally, so you can even get the .5% figured out if it applies. If Aztec pays $219, you have a 9.5% bonus, for example.

    Also, many of the Squidport buildings pay off in even $100 increments.

    (Technically, any building over $100 can give you an accurate ballpark, but that involves math. Eck. :D )

    Yup I sure did. I'm waiting on my 3 day tile. I did get about 25 tiles so I'm grateful for that alone

    did it twice doing the same thing - trying to collect the xp and tile instead of waiting for it to collect on its own...

    first time cost 30 donuts, second time cost 36. yolo!

    but actually i think the main reason i rushed them was i felt dumb having a giant 'please tap tile' message without a tile and i was too lazy to clean that up haha.

    I'm feeling the same way now. I originally rushed my first tile that was in the middle of building when this broke, and was only 8 donuts. Then accidentally tapped and spent more, and then did a 2nd time and spent 36 like. You would think after doing this twice I would have learned, but no just did a 3rd time. Good grief. Shame on me X 3. But I'm leaving up the sign and waiting to rush until at least tomorrow evening.

    Can anyone "not playing the tile game" explain why not. Do they enjoy waiting another 8months too get all tiles? Prefer to waste donuts rushing them? The only valid excuse is not being the right level to build squid port.....

    Since I have only been able to get 2 handshakes lately, I am at least waiting til tomorrow because my exchange friends have tapped for the day. Might as well save a few donuts before I rush. But I agree in principal with you, obviously, and will rush again then.

    Things I've learned:

    -move buildings away from the entrance
    -ignore gremlins, ghosts, and Sideshow Bob
    -close your task book before you get near the tile
    -most importantly, AUTO-COLLECT! (Grr, got me twice!)

    And if you inadvertently tap it, go nuts and swipe your finger all over the screen before your next tile is ready.

    I did tap my tiles (2) in a row not realizing what the glitch was-
    Now I collect multiple tiles but I leave at least 2 handshakes to be safe.

    With my other town I use the click tile exit /enter, click the tile again until I have clicked the tile 3 times and vice versa for the other town.

    For friends towns I sometimes use that exit/enter method to give them 3 tiles if they have have more than 40,000 goo.
    Figuring they would like tiles more than goo. Of course I'm not sure which they want, but they can ping me if they prefer the haunting taps for goo.

    I did. I ended up getting like 6 tiles before I tapped it by accident.

    I'm now 9 hours out from another one. I always make sure to look at my friends SP first before tapping any other buildings. Everyone could use some tiles

    Just tapped a building next to my squidport entrance, and it cleared my last handshake. Now I have to wait 3 more days.

    I accidentally tapped my tile a couple of days ago. I did spend the donuts to rush a tile. But the way I see it the donuts used were the free Halloween event donuts, so I feel like I'm even. :?

    Unable to vote. My tiles take 3.5 days... I didn't know to leave 1 handshake until after I did the deed. Now for another 3.5 days :(
