Can't do any actions on a friend's springfield

Prev1
I'm guessing that one of you rushed the Halloween quests, so your towns are not currently compatible.

    I have the same problem. When I click on a friend's Springfield a alert saying this person has newer content than you. It's update time.

    When I click ok however it just takes me back to the loading screen.

    Having the same problem since the update. Can only collect from a few friends. Nothing to tap in most neighbor towns even though they have updated. Hope the fix comes soon or we will miss out on valuable FP and new Halloween items!

    Getting this issue as well... when I told someone in their support chat about it, their answer was to have everyone friend who was getting to issue to reinstall the game...

    Hoping for a fix soon too...

    This is very, very likely just a case of some users being farther along in the Halloween quest line. Some people have rushed and some have not. Until everyone gets past Lisa trick-or-treating, there are going to be towns that aren't quite compatible with each other, content-wise. Please, give it a day before you all start panicking.

    It appears that for this event, until you reach a certain point (I believe the point where you have little aliens running around your town), you will not be able to get anything done with your friend visits, or at least that is what I am seeing. I have a couple feeder towns, and this was my experience last evening with my towns. When I went to other towns, even 'other springfield', it said I had 3/3 actions left, yet absolutely nothing was tappable. Kind of annoying.

    I know it seems weird, but "Other Springfield" has the aliens running around. For this update, you squish aliens in other towns and don't interact with their buildings at all. Until you can squish aliens in your own town, you can't do it in other towns. Don't worry, you'll get there!

    So I won't be able to collect Krustyland tickets in other towns during this Halloween event? That would be awful, since I just recently started doing Krustyland stuff and I need the tickets! (I also need the extra dollars I was earning from visiting friends...Honest John's Computers is not cheap!)

    You still get cash for squishing aliens. I don't know about Krustyland, I haven't tested it.

    Well, that's good to hear.... I made the mistake of not sending Lisa out trick-or-treating this morning (I usually save tasks that are 8 hours or more for overnight), so I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow before I can resume visiting friends.

    Thanks for the info!

    I wonder, I got past Lisa Trick or Treating and was squashing aliens, but when I went to visit other springfield, there were no aliens running around.
    Also, after Trick or Treating Lisa is supposed to question Kangs motives, yet when I click on that quest, there is no "Question Kang's Motives" in the drop down box for Lisa's available things to do.
    Obviously some of my friends are doing quite well with this event so far... they have collected quite a few items - and I don't even have any halloween items to purchase in my store...
    I think there are some glitches with this update.
    I deleted it from my ipad and am reinstalling - it says I may lose some status in game play... but I'm going for it anyway.

    I have found this as well. I can only access one friend's Springfield. Even Other Springfield isn't working for me. I tried tapping on aliens after what I read above but nothing happens. I also can't see anything for Lisa trick or treating.

    Also there's now symbols appearing under friend's Springfields where I see the daily actions etc. Nothing in the update explained what these are?

    You can't tap aliens yet if you can't see anything for Lisa trick-or-treating. Have you built the Build-a-Thing store yet?

    It's event currency.
