    That's too much work. I'm doing fine just collecting emblems blitzing through all of my neighbors.

    I am a lodge tapper for the first 60 actions. I visit everyone of my neighbours multiple times until I get the zero emblems message. Then I will visit everybody agsin but NOT tap any lodges until all of my neighbours say "come back in x"

    It's time consuming, sure, but I figure it's a win-win for me and my neighbours. If I don't have time then everyone just gets 3 normal taps.

    Please don't just delete lodge tappers unless you're sure they're not playing the same way as me.

    I've deleted quite a few who would only do this. I take the time to visit everyone and make sure everyone gets 3 taps from me so if someone cant do the same, theyre gone in flash. I've said it before on other topics that I been keeping a chart on who only does the lodge once and who does the full 3 taps. The ones who only taps the lodge and comes back 3-4 hours to only do the lodge again are annoying as well, probably will be deleting them soon too.

    To be frank, I'm less than thrilled when someone who taps only my lodge comes back and taps the lodge a second time.

    I have NO PROBLEM with the tactic of going through the list tapping only lodges. Its a smart strategy. I'm ashamed I didn't think of it myself. ;)

    I love the follow up visit to give me my two extra taps. That is a wonderful gesture. I have amazing neighbors and virtually all of them return. I know at that point, most are beyond their 60 and only tapping to help me out.

    I don't mind if someone does NOT always make that second trip. Its time consuming, and I understand.

    HOWEVER, on that second go around, I wish they would not tap the lodge, if they tapped it already that day. I have close to 75 friends. I have close to 14,000 emblems, largely because SO MANY visit me. I would like to think that I can give as many of them as possible the chance at my lodge. This is why I try to visit/clear my lodge at LEAST four times per hour. But that means only about forty chances for 75 neighbors. When I see that many of my most faithful friends are shut out from having any access to those extra points while others go through three times ... Well ... I would prefer to help as many as possible.

    I'm not angry. I just would be a Happy Camper if people would use my lodge once but not more.

    Just sayin' :)

    Well now you have me wondering if I am making some of my neighbors angry with me! I will go through my neighbors just tapping the lodge at different times through the day, and then when I get home from work one more lodge pass and after that everyone gets all of their daily taps.

    I am lucky, in that I can tap at work as long as I don't get too carried away! :lol:

    I tried this today. It was very time consuming and I don't think it was worth the reward. If I really need tokens near the end I may do it.

    So to my neighbours- apologies for today. Back to tapping anything tomorrow :P .... But the lodge if its free

    I don't get why it's a big deal if someone is a lodge tapper. I started this weekend but may need to give it up. I'm trying to get ahead because I actually have something to do this weekend :mrgreen:

    I worry that I'm annoying neighbors by tapping the lodge first and several times. It definitely takes longer then the usual, but it's really my time to waste and I still make sure to tap every neighbor gets 3 taps. And I never tap on the lodge if I'm not getting any emblems. I'm still trying to figure out the best time to visit. Mornings seem like the best time, as everyone will be starting their number 1 tasks, but I'm still working out the kinks. So I hope people don't delete people because of this, at least they are taking the time to visit at tap 3 times, shouldn't matter how long it takes them as long as they visit IMO.

    I thought about lodge tapping but its only 300 emblems, not worth my time at all. Without even trying (or spending donuts) I'm at 13,000 emblems, which by some blogs charts is almost double what I need in order to hit the final prize before the end of the event.

    You must get LOT of neighbor taps. Some of us have more of a struggle.

    Tbh only about 30-35 out of my neighbors visit my town (I have 100). There are people that have been on my list since Christmas who've never even been to my town. I'm not sure why either because that's how you get a lot of this stuff. Very weird.

    I visited neighbours several times a day trying to tap the lodge 60 times (and after 60 taps, I tapped everything else). Maybe because of the lodge hunting, I'm ahead of the emblem chart. I think I'm going to drop the hunt for now, since I'm not in an urgent need of emblems. It became a kind of an obsession to find the lodge. :D

    I generally just blast through my entire neighbours list in one run. Tapping the lodge when I can and avoiding it when I can't gain emblems.

    It takes less time. Sure, I may miss out on a few emblems. However, I hope that by visiting everyone and giving three taps I'll get more return visits than I normally would and that will make up some of the difference.

    I do this, it's a thoughtful strategy.

    I think a poll may be in order regarding tapping neighbors...

    I tap the lodge if it's available but otherwise will just tap anything. I tried lodges then going back but it took too long and I kept getting confused. I like seeing that neighbours actually visit me so I like to repay that finger tapping effort in kind. :)

    I would not delete lodge tappers. They're just working a strategy and at the end of the day, they're pretty good neighbors visiting your town.

    This is basically what i do :) I'm not worried about the emblems for the max amount as we have plenty of time to get all the prizes or at least i think we do.

    My main concern is making sure i visit everyone on my list so everyone gets a reward :)

    The way i see its all...........

    This is my view. I'm already ahead of the curve by about 5000 emblems so why bother logde tapping exclusively?

    I'm not going to delete anyone for it but it bothers me.

    I did it last night thinkin one quick thru, tap only the lodges, hopefully get a rack of 5s. Save the rest of your eligible taps for the morning when you do a real run thru (tap the lodge when ya can but three regardless, anything but the lodge after 60, ALWAYS A-Z=THE CODE). Now tonight all my times are jacked up. I like to be able to just roll thru all my peeps in one swing. PLUS the difference isn't significant compared to the daily No. 1 payouts. Think Ima stick to the one homerun and done technique...everybody wins

    I do try to keep my lodge clear as much as possible, and it does not bother me at all if neighbours visit and just tap the lodge. It does me annoy if they only tap that one thing and then never return, especially as I try to make sure and visit every neighbour and tap three cameras every day.

    What I have noticed is that by just blasting once through my neighbour list, tapping three cameras in each SF (including the lodge where available) I am averaging around 130-140 emblems per round of visits.

    That, combined with the 1000 emblems available for the number 1 tasks, the reward for the parchment puzzles and the quest lines, means I am around 4 days ahead of the chart, so I am pretty comfortable with that.
