Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Enjoy the first official weekend of summer?!

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to boogie woogie uoogie all night long!  It’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!  (this is very quickly becoming our favorite time of the week by the way!  You guys have some AWESOME things to say!)

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Stonecutters, Level 42…what else does EA have up their sleeves?  Updates coming fast and furious, what do YOU think will hit when Stonecutters ends next week?  World Cup is in full swing…with the defending champions, Spain, knocked out already…who do you think will win?  The US vs. Portugal match is on now…all tied up.  What do you think will happen in the last few minutes?  We’re giving away donuts again!  Do you think we’ve absolutely lost our minds?  What would you do with the free donuts if you win?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun, the World Cup, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. OmG!! ever since i was forced to take the new update my game has been acting wonky! first it would freeze up for like a minute in game and the return to regular play, now my game crashes rite after the logo screen while the doughnut spins!! getting very frustrated!! cnt get my simspons fix and im so far in the game to jus give up now…. Grr Arg!!

  2. Is it just me or have they stopped handing out random donuts for visiting friends. About a week ago I completed the Emblem Tasks to get Satan’s Anvil and I am now earning donuts every 3000 Emblems. Thankyou EA. However, before this point I was getting 1 or 2 free donuts a day from visiting my 100 friends. Now I’m getting nothing. Is it because I’m earning donuts from the 3000 Emblems task, is it because of the Level 42 update or is it just me being unlucky. Any ideas, thoughts appreciated.

  3. I’m a little late for this but I’m looking for advice on doughnuts. I have not purchased any and have collected 205 doughnuts. I’m trying to decide what to spend them on or if I should wait until the next special event (or even next Halloween) to spend them.

    • It depends. What do you like? Any characters you have your eye on? Limited-Time is always fun because they may not ever come back, whereas the other characters will be in the game forever so you can get them anytime. The downside is….we don’t know what’s coming. We have an Addicts top 10 list here:

      This is each of our top 10 favorite premium characters, but permanent characters not limited-time. But it might help you get started 🙂

  4. Not so much Sunday evening as Monday morning now. There was no way I could stay up till 1am
    UK time to post a comment, especially since I’m on a different shift pattern this week and started work at 5am this morning.
    Hope everyone had a good weekend, mine went quite quickly and I had Saturday off for once which meant I could go out drinking for the first time since my birthday last year.
    Haven’t really watched any football this weekend, the last game I partially saw was Italy v Costa Rica on Friday night. England are out of the World Cup already, usual performance from them.

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      What is this “football” that you mentioned? I don’t have it in my game 😉

      Glad you could get out & let go Saturday, everyone needs some “down time” once in a while 🙂

  5. Is anybody else seeing their games freeze for a few seconds every now and then recently? It also seems that after the level 42 update my games started crashing more frequently again. Damn, it was running so smootly for a few weeks… 🙁

    • Yes…mine was crashing like crazy yesterday. Might be something up with Origin tho…

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      The only problem I’ve had recently with freezing is when I’m moving/remodeling, it sometimes takes forever to go in. A couple of times I’ve had to reboot my game to clear it.

  6. Josephine Kick@$$

    Looks like I missed some fun tonight, I had a 4 day weekend (1 more day to go YAY!) & spaced off it was Sunday. It’s always good to see “friendly faces” around 🙂

  7. Totally Tap Addicted. Luv it!

  8. Hey bunny when you gonna accept my friend request? I’d like to see your town, along with Wookie’s and Alissa’s, hint hint 🙂

  9. I’m only at 34203 emblems …. Just shy of 35000. Somehow it’s already popping up 165/3000 for secret bonus prize. Will I be bumped out of the devil anvil prize? Hard closed app, powered down device. Tried both android and iOS device. HELP!

  10. Just wanted to post a quick apology to my neighboureenos as I have not been as regular visiting you all (more like 36 hours than 24). Life is a bit hectic at present but I will get there

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      Hey neighbor 🙂 I’ve noticed quite a few of my neighbors that have been too busy with RL to clear their town, (I don’t keep track of who visits me, I just figure if they can’t, they have their own reasons). It’s all guuud 😉

    • hey you have a awsome town. i am a friend of yours. i am abc1952590865

  11. Did I see somewhere in an earlier post about how the Emblem Donut Bonuses follow a pattern? I thought it was middle / middle / ??? / ???. I guessed middle the first two times and got the three donuts. Anyone else?

  12. So odd question. I got some iTunes gift cards & for some reason I cannot figure out how to use them in my games :/ Google is easy, just select payment options. Apple just auto withdrawals my debit card. No laughing, I’m still a newbie with my iPad lol.

    • Go into iTunes. Scroll to the buttom and there should be a redeem code button or something like that. Enter your card and it’s now a credit towards your next purchase.

    • preload them to your iTunes account (via computer) then select that as your main payment option That should allow you to use the GC instead of your Credit Card 🙂

      • See that’s what’s weird. I can get it to work on iTunes just fine. Buy a couple songs, load to my iPod. Happy listener. Go into my game, and it takes my card, unhappy tapper lol. So I tried the payment option thing in iTunes & all it let’s me do is unchecked my card. Does that auto send it to my available g.c. balance?

        • It should. I mainly play on Android so I’m struggling to remember. But I believe if you uncheck it it should default to the card.

  13. A strange thing happened just now when all my heart shaped ponds turned into a S shaped dirt roads and I think there were three stacks of chopped wood on it. As I zoomed out it changed back to ponds.

    I wonder what was that?

  14. I hear ya Runicgem. The $150k is steep for those of us that don’t yet have a huge bank of cash.

    Free donuts? I don’t think so. Since the level 42 update came out Wednesday, also the day I reached 35k emblems, I haven’t guessed correctly once. My XP was nearly full prior to the update so I maxed it out that same Wednesday night even before th building was built. Guessed Centre, Left, then finally got 3 donuts in the Right box ($100k). On Thursday, got 3k emblems and guessed Centre then got 3 donuts in the Left box ($150k). On Friday, got 3k more emblems and guessed, Centre, Left, then finally got 3 donuts in the Right box ($300k). Yesterday again, got 3k more emblems and guessed, Centre, Left, then finally got 3 donuts in the Right box ($300k). Today, just got another 3k emblems and guessed Centre then got 3 donuts in the Left box ($150k).

    So got 15 “free” donuts, but it’s cost me ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Maybe I should rethink my default sequence of Centre, Left, then Right. LOL!

  15. Where are the post for the Stonecutters Table and the WDTCF Money Pool? Did it come from Scrooge McDuck? lol. Well you guys did get the 10 donuts from Homer at the Stonecutter Table secret out pretty quick so I’ll give you a pass on this one.

  16. Think we will be seeing ol’ Gil soon for some discounted premium items???

    • We’ve all got our fingers crossed. Hopefully soon but no way to tell.

      • I have save 233 donuts and am wanting to spend them! But, in the back of my mind is as soon as you spend them Gil will be back!

    • One of my neighbors has a character that looks just like Gil in his town. He paces a bit and then drops to his knees pleading and looking worried. Any ideas who it could be? He’s wearing a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and his tie is loosened.

      • That is exactly what Gil does when he offers a deal. Is he always in that neighbor’s town? If so, they may have a modded game.

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        Too late Ryan 😉

      • No reply button next to the Wookie’s post, so I’m answering here: I’ve only recently noticed Gil in this person’s town and he was in the same area each time. Not sure if that means the town is “modded”, as I don’t know what that means (I’m guessing hacked?).

        • Yes modded means hacked… 😉

          And yes, sometimes Gil does randomly appear. However it’s not always a modded game. Sometimes it’s just a texture glitch in someone’s Springfield (similar to seeing eggs or TP in a Springfield). But no signs of Gil (for real) just yet! 🙂

  17. Having an issue! The sonecutter table never showed up in my inventory…I got the task to do, but no table to use or place…not in inventory and says I got it?

  18. I had oral surgery on Friday, ouch!!!! I am so glad that I have all of you and the game to keep me busy and my mind off the pain. I even finished the initial emblem collection and got all of the prizes including the first ” Thanks so much for the help!

  19. EvilKitten812

    Hey everyone!! I am happy to report that during my short stay in WiFi zone I got a lot done on my Springfield. Hoping for that chance @ tapper of the month. A few more emblems and I’ll be ready for screenshots!

  20. Been on this site when the other became too much to bare! Saw TSTOADDICTS only about a few days after ya’ll started! Been strictly TSTOADDICTS ever since! Love everything about this site! Met amazing ppl and have great neighbors thanks to this site!! Love Alissa, Bunny Foo Foo and Wookiee too! Why go looking anywhere else! I think it is awesome how ya’ll juggle TSTO and the other as well! Great work, Great info and Great Humor!! Alissa, how my doing in the sucking up department? LOL but seriously i am not! It is all true!! 😉 Wish EA would charge 50k instead of 150k for those donut boxes when you reach 3k emblems!

    • meh I’d give it an 9.4 on the suck up scale…now if you said I was your favorite that might push it to a 10 😉

      • Bunny has too many kissing her paws for attention!! Me? I’ve always liked you!! I know i needed to say that cause i am not one to be locked up LOL i’ve been known to squeeze thru a 12″ square!! 😉

    • You better get that up to a 10 if you want to win some donuts 😛

    • Runicgem my friend…make sure you copy and paste your great comment into the “contest” post. I’d hate to see you miss out at a shot for the “Mmmmmmm….premium currency” so generously offered by the wonderful, beautiful, intelligent Addicts Staff……(now THAT is 1st class sucking up!) ..LOL 😉

    Excellent start … to all you first time “commenters”…WELCOME! And now that you have knocked the rust off…come on over to this post and toss a few comments out. We don’t bite…(I only nibble…LOL) 😉

  22. I don’t know bout y’all but I love the new 2 hour tasks that some of the characters have been given. To me the 60 minute tasks were to short but, the 4 hours ones were to long. Glad thy gave us another choice.

  23. Just (hopefully) fixed a leaky pipe in the basement. Not fun. Getting all reved up for tomorrow, I get to use my Christmas present and go for a ride along in a real drag car. 140MPH baby.

    Honestly I hope the updates slow down a little bit, I am level 37 and still 4 or 5 levels behind building wise. I need some time to catch up. I will be very sad to see the Stone Cutters event end though, I have been really enjoying this one a lot. I feel very bad for anyone who joins this game and misses the event. Anyone else watching True Blood soon?

  24. Has anyone noticed the discrepancy on the emblem count between what it shows as your total emblems earned and the count to the 3000 secret bonus.

    I’ve noticed that when you hit the 3000 mark, that the additional emblems are lost. For example, if you’re on 2,999 and you get 20 emblems from the treasure chest, you lose 19 emblems. This could be a serious loss if you have just completed task #4 and earned 400 emblems but only needed a couple to hit the 3000 mark.

    Has anyone else encountered this?

    • Getting a few reports and keepin an eye on it. Halloween saw the same issue with the goo counter. That when you got close to the resets you had to make sure you were in your town to collect or lose all the extras if you were in a neighbors. For now, I would highly suggest alerting EA to the issue. So it is brought to their attention right away.

      Thanks for letting us know.

    • Good to know that could be happening again.

  25. I wish we were able to get emblems from all our neighbors we visit

  26. Exactly which day does the stone cutter end? is at 24000 will I be able to get all the prizes?

  27. Watch out addicts I here and ready to go. Let’s get this post to over 500 posts!! Alissa, bunny, wookie are you ready to moderate your little fingers off?? I’ve seen silly posting already, where gmadar and the rest of the gang. I am so relieved my class ended today. I got a 99℅ and two more start at midnight. Joined a gym last weekend to get my sexy back. Work has been good, going back up north sometime this week. So yeah I have been busy. How bout you guys?

  28. tap tap tap tap tap so much tapping with this event tap tap tap tap tap.
