Last Chance Easter & Remaining Superhero Stuff

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re entering the final hours of the Easter Event and the chance to buy any remaining Superhero items….as both sets of items will leave our stores tomorrow morning (0800GMT, 4am EDT).  So if you’re thinking about making any purchases make sure you do so before everything leaves town.

So, just what will be heading out at sunrise?  Here’s a look at everything that will be leaving our games tomorrow… Continue reading

Where Did THAT Come From – Easter Island God

Easter! Island!

On a site with a resident Bunny… this is the time of year when one of us starts hopping around like crazy. I’ll give you one clue that it’s not the fuzzball or writer in Crocs. EA hooked us all up by bringing back loads of stuff from last year’s event. Added to that was a new item courtesy of poor old Gil and a mishap with a shipping container. Of course, I’m referring to the Easter Island God offered for 100 donuts. Alissa already popped by with a Should I Buy for this item, but our coverage isn’t complete until one of us let’s you know just where this comes from. Let’s take a look…

Add Friends- Who Pledge Not to Vandalize You! Part 9

This feed is pretty full…so we’ve started a new one, which you can view here. Comments on this one are now disabled.

See the notes below about treating each other with respect on this thread.  If we continue to see the disturbing trend we’re seeing of attacking others over vandalism this will be the last non-vandalism thread we do.  And comments here will be cut off.  Treat each other with respect.  Just because players don’t like to be vandalized doesn’t mean they’re playing the game wrong.  Everyone has the right to play TSTO the way they want to, DO NOT disrespect each other because if it.

Also, accidents happen.  Just because someone tags you doesn’t mean it was on purpose and doesn’t give you the right to attack them.  Again, treat each other with respect or this thread will be shutdown and not replaced.  Thank you. 

Well…it’s that time.  The old vandalism thread was getting quite full & it’s time to start fresh once again!

Do you hate getting graffiti in your Springfield?  Are you tired of cleaning up after other people’s fun, at your expense?  Are you someone that NEVER Vandalizes other towns?  Are you super concerned about your Righteousness rating…no matter how many Training Walls you build?  Well this is the Add Friends Thread for You!

Now before we get started, there is something we must go over…

HERE IS WHERE WE ARE GETTING DISTURBED BY THIS THREAD AND RESPONSESWe see new players as well as seasoned players state they really do not know what vandalism is, so they assume they are not doing it when tapping to spray paint. We also see many apologize for accidentally tapping on a spray can. I do all the time and it is for so many reasons it would be impossible to list them all, but I do it at least once a day.

The part that should NOT be happening is the increasing amounts of “threats and abuse” to other players in the comment threads. No matter the reason for the “tag”, accidental or not, NO PLAYER/READER has the right to use it as a basis to come here and attack or abuse that person on our site. ANYONE doing so will find their comments quickly in the trash. Further abuse will result in removal from our site. 

This goes COMPLETELY against our Addicts Guidelines and will not be allowed. If the abuse and threats still continue beyond this, the Vandalism thread will be pulled altogether. Be kind to each other. Realize not everyone plays like you and there are mistakes as well as those that are still learning the game or just finding this site to know what the ins and outs are. SO BE RESPECTFUL!!!

If you are not sure what Vandalism is…see our in depth post HERE so you can understand it better and why it bothers so many players. 🙂

Now on to what this post is supposed to be about. 

Here’s your thread for those of you who PLEDGE NOT TO VANDALIZE EACH OTHER’S TOWNS!  If you can’t keep that pledge…please don’t add your name to this thread.  We’ve got a whole other Add-Me Thread here, for those who may/may not vandalize each other.  

IMPORTANT…..Include that you WILL NOT VANDALIZE in your comment with your request.  DO NOT put your name on this list AND the other list.  This is the list for those who pledge NOT to vandalize…if you put your ID on both lists we will delete it from this one.

And a friendly reminder about the rules for this post/thread….
Remember…this is a thread to Add Your Name for friends ONLY.  If you’d like to have a conversation with other players (and we encourage you to do so!) please feel free to take it to one of our many open threads (we have a new one each week on Sunday!) .  You can access the open threads here. Again…we encourage you to take any and all conversations about TSTO (or anything else) to one of our many open threads. 🙂

Because we’ve been seeing many emails lately from players who are having a hard time finding friends on this thread (or having their name disappear in a sea of comments that aren’t friend requests) we’re limiting ALL posts on this thread to the following:

-Origin ID (Add Me Request) with Pledge Not to Vandalize
-Posts saying you added someone
-Post ONLY to say ” —- tagged me”
-Post apologizing to someone for accidentally tagging them
AND THAT IS IT! NOTHING MORE!

It is up to YOU to decide who you want on your friends list. If you don’t want them, take them off. That simple.

So please, we encourage you to talk to each other about your towns, etc.  but please please PLEASE take it to the Open Threads and leave this thread just for players looking for Player IDs to add to their game who won’t vandalize.  

Also, if you have specific questions about an aspect of the game (or Friend requests etc) we invite you to ask on our Q & A page.  There your question will be sure to be seen, and not lost in a sea of Add Me requests.   🙂

Thank you! Happy Tapping!

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!
