Shout Out! And the Finalists Are….

shoutoutrevised Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we’re nearing the end of March and that means it’s about that time to pick our Tapper of the Month!  Our cross blog monthly contest to find the Tapper of the month between TSTO Topix, TSTO game and TSTO Addicts has been set up because we want to feature YOU!   Your town, your words anything/everything about YOU!  Each month we’ll pick a handful of readers across the three blogs to be featured in our Monthly Shout Out, where we’ll feature your town and some fun information about you.  Then at the end of the Shout Out we’ll let the TSTO Community vote for their favorite.  That winner will be declared our Tapper of the Month! This has been a fun process for Topix, game and Addicts!

We’ve enjoyed getting to know each of you through your submissions and we really loved seeing your creative work on display!  We received many submissions for the April Tapper of the month and had a tough decision to narrow it down to just 5, but we did it!  The writing staff of all THREE blogs came together and collectively agreed that all 5 of the finalists were Tapper of the Month material! So check out the top 5 and be sure to vote for your favorite!  Remember the Tapper you choose could be the Tapper of the Month and be featured on Topix, game and Addicts for the month of April AND win a $10 gift card!  So choose wisely!

Oh Those Servers Are Down Again….Open Thread

serverdowngraphic-800x450“They’re up
They’re down,
They’re down and up and down
down, down, down
up, up, up,
The EA Distraction Show!”
(Thanks CGuy for the awesome modification to my server’s down jingle!)

Update 9:36AM EST:  Of course I put up our servers are down thread and the servers come back up for my game.  Check your games let us know if you’re back up too!

Update 10:00AM EST:  And now they’re down again…for me anyway.  Readers are reporting theirs are down again too.  Definitely hit and miss right now.  Certainly gives credit to the fact that they’re up and they’re down right now.

Update 4:30pm EST: It appears that the servers have now been up for a while and stable (well as stable as they can be) for anyone having issues with the game.  No, no update today…but who knows what tomorrow will bring.  For now have fun tap tap tapping! 🙂

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you seeing this message when you try to login to TSTO:
2014-01-29 21.25.47
Or this one?

Yea?  Me too.  But...DO NOT PANIC!  While it sucks, yes, this is something that we’re seeing many many MANY Tappers experiencing right now.

So be patient…relax…and keep trying.  Eventually they’ll come back up and we can all get to Tap Tap Tappin again!

In the mean time…do you need some ideas of what to do?  Check out this post for the do’s and don’t’s of the Servers being down. You can also add your Caption to our latest Caption This! OR talk amogst yourselves as we make this post a special Wednesday Open Thread!  Is this perhaps preparation for something big from EA in our games?  What do YOU think is coming?  It is Wednesday afterall…EA’s Favorite Update Day!  And it’s always fun to speculate!  So chat it up with each other about anything and everything TSTO related or not as we ALL wait for the servers to come back up 🙂

Can’t wait to chat with my favorite Addicts!

Diary of a Wookiee: A Guinea Pig Ramble

Guinea pig, guinea pig, let me in…
Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin….

Well I’m huffing and puffing but no matter what I do, those dang pigs won’t come out of their house.  Wookieetown was once bustling with these cute little fuzzballs but alas, I ate them all.  Lisa had me excited with her 8 hr task at the Rescue Center but I must admit I was disappointed that this task was only a one-time deal.  No matter how I tap on the building, I only hear those poor cute piggys squeal and nothing more.  I really liked this building animation and hope to see it return.  (hint hint EA)

Fawn Over Rescued Guinea Pigs
