Troubleshooting 101- “Done” Stuck!

UPDATE: Getting scattered reports that many of these tasks are now starting to clear. I hope lighting the fire helped many of you out. Please let me know if many of you are still having this issue. Keep posting to forum and contacting EA as well if you are. 

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Bouncing by to try and help out with an issue that is hitting all over the place. Many different results. Many different issues. All seem to revolve around one thing, the task is stuck on “Done”.

Christmas Rewind Should I Buy: Costington’s and Santa Flanders

Hey Howdy Hey Elf Tapping Tappers!

Another week of Christmas in Springfield has gone by…and another opportunity for you to purchase items from Christmas past has arrived!

As with Christmases past (and other events) EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it.  Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items are premium.  You can check out our pros and cons on other items here.

This week EA has brought back Costington’s (with Mr. Costington) & Santa Flanders for a 1 week only sale!   So both Santa Flanders and Costington’s will leave the store next Friday, 12/26.  Also, it’s important to note EA has added some times to other items in that store…to indicate when they’ll be expiring.  EVERY item currently in the store (except Santa Flanders & Mr. Costington) will disappear at some point between now and Phase 2 starting (on 12/24).  So if you’ve had your eye on something now’s your chance to get it…before it’s gone!  Here’s a handy guide to help you know what’s leaving when:

Christmas Present Prizes: Breaking Down the Nativity

Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!

Well….unless you’ve been caught in a major snowstorm you know that Christmas has arrived in Springfield! A light snow is falling & Santa has arrived in town!   By now we’re all busy sending those elves and residents to the workshop to make presents!

With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages.  For the first phase, which lasts until Christmas Eve (12/24), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Presents.  The eight and final prize is awarded at 14,000 Presents and it’s the Nativity.

Let’s take a closer look at this living Nativity, and just what happens when you add it to your Springfield..

Note: I know many of you are not here yet.  And don’t worry you’re not behind.  If you’re following Bunny’s calendar you have until the 23rd to reach 14,000 presents.  I just know from the comments that many of you will be reaching this at some point over the weekend, so I wanted to make sure all of the details were out there prior to the weekend.  So don’t panic if you haven’t gotten the Nativity yet.  You’ve still got plenty of time.

Where Did THAT Come From – Bonestorm Santa

Hey there holiday tappers! Howzit? So TSTO is officially in White Christmas mode and the snow is a’falling. I don’t know about you but I love my town covered in snow. As a Southern California resident, I like the snow I can oooh and aaah over without being cold or shoveling it. Of course with a brand new event comes brand new stuff to chat about. My favorite part is of course re-watching Simpsons episodes and then sharing with you just where THAT comes from. For this edition, let’s take a look at Bonestorm Santa.
