Addicts Weekly Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Due to POPULAR request….we’ve moving up our open thread time so that our friends outside of the US can participate too!  Let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Now…enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  Time for another Open Thread!

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 Open Thread.  The Tap Ball Event hit our events last week, what are your thoughts on the event so far?  How’s your overall team record?  The NBA Draft was this past week, did your team draft anyone good?  Woman’s World Cup is in full swing, knock out round, how’s your team doing?  Sunday Night Baseball tonight features the Cubs at the Cardinals, will you be watching?  How was your weekend?  Do anything fun an exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, 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!

    YEA! Free donuts! Thank you EA for the 13 Sprinkles and a Happy 4th of July to all of you.

  2. One of my neighbors has vehicles on roads. I tried it and it won’t work. Should I assume my neighbor is using a cheat?

  3. Is it just me, or are others having to spend a lot more time visiting neighbors during this event? I usually spend 20-30 minutes to go through my entire neighbors list, but with this event it takes me 60+ minutes. Those fans are just too hard to find!

  4. Doesn’t this look just like the Springfield farmer’s market?!?

  5. Tapebelt – I think your pond had frozen over…Apu’s ice bowling and Mr. Burns is taking batting practice out on the ice! 😉

  6. Mornin’ all! Hope everyone is well and kicking along ok, regular ‘pologies again for less than active commenting here….
    Alissa / Bunny / Wookie, without installing WordPress is there a way of searching your site (before I try myself, not much tome 🙁 ) for mentions of my handle, feel like I may be missing comments even though I do try and check the regular places I have posted?
    About halfway through my contract at the moment, doing well, and there is murmurs of extending it to 12 months… SSSSsssssoooooooo miss home!

    • You can see a brief cap of what’s going on (Post Title) if you follow us on Facebook & Twitter. You can also sign up for email alerts to go to your email. Other than that, you don’t need to sign in to just view the site… mainly to comment under an ID you set up.

      • No – he’s asking how to find posts that contain mentions of his handle…just posts he’s commented on. I think he doesn’t want to miss if someone’s trying to say something to him.

        • Half of my comment is missing… so I will add the 2nd part again.

          As far as finding “YOU”, I do not know if it works the same on your end as it does ours. Try the “Search” Feature we have that is linked within the menus as it scours all posts and comments for any mention of the keywords you put in. See if it works for you that way. We have an alternate search on our end… but that is only accessible by… well… us. 😉

    • Can’t you just say no to an extension? It may be tempting, money-wise, but I don’t think it’s worth how miserable it’s been making you. How much is your happiness/sanity worth?

      • Cheers Bunny! It’s kinda why I like the handle “cube”, doesn’t really appear much in normal confabulations 😉 haven’t had a chance to try it yet but I’ll let you know tomorrow (-ish :)…
        An’ Sandra, I know money isn’t everything, but the thing going through the back of my mind if they do extend it to 12 months is I can pay off my house. Completely. Really, really hard decision. .. sanity or long term security 😉

        • I vote “sanity.” It’s easier to find another, better gig than to get your sanity back once you’ve lost it.

          Seriously, Matt – it’s only been a few weeks and you already seem so depressed. Unless you can find a new way to live in this situation, doing some thing or things differently to change the experience for yourself, I just can’t imagine what you’re going to be like after many more MONTHS of this!

    Ok first of all I know you’ve probably already done a post on this but can someone tell me where u get rocker horse tap ball player and the golden stadium from? (Saw it in a 5 star town) Second I don’t want to sound whiny but why is it these events r giving out for free things that I paid donuts/clams for? I suppose it would just be nice if one of them was one I needed especially as I’m mostly freemium player without many premium characters. I suppose I’ll just have to accept my bad luck gracefully lol 😀

    • 1. It’s probably a hacker, as they’re not in the game at this time.

      2. What have they given out for free that you paid donuts for? So far there’s been nothing awarded for free that was once premium. There’s loads of stuff that was one free that’s now premium, but not the other way.

  8. Can someone explain the nerve juice? I have all the players and they are all 5 stars. When I play an all 5 star team , I always tie or lose. When 1/2 to 4 1/2 star teams play me and use the juice to temporarily have 5 stars…I get beat 4-1. So does the juice make you better than 5 star? Can I use it with 5 stars? Seems unfair to win enough games to get to 5 stars to have a lesser team use cheat juice and win.

  9. I never received my daily training prize #8 of Lugash after completing my tasks within the 24 hr timeframe. His skin never showed up in my inventory. Is there any way I can correct this problem?

    • It’s not a skin. It just unlocks the ability for Lugash to play tap ball. Only applies if you already own Lugash. (premium)

  10. One of my neighbours just got herself deleted. First i noticed she had a lot of prizes that looked suspicious. I gave her benefit of doubt. But jeez louise, how in the world does she have 5555586 wins in tapball in 4 hours….😱

  11. I’m sad that Milhouse wasn’t invited to play in Mr Burns’ softball game – every other kid (even Hugo!) could play. 🙁

  12. Anybody see this before? I was visiting a neighbor’s town a couple of days ago, looking for fans to tap, when I came across something odd. Helen Lovejoy and Rev. Lovejoy were in front of the church “worshipping” and right in front of them was Rev. Lovejoy walking his dog. I actually did a double take. When the Lovejoys are worshipping together, the Rev shouldn’t be available for another task. I remembered to grab some screen shots before the dog-walking Rev moved too far away. The only thing similar I’ve seen was during the superhero event when one of my neighbors had two rad mobiles parked side by side.

  13. New invisible friends. That’s what I seem to be getting each day. Ever since this event rolled in, I keep on seeing the “New” badge on my neighbors icon (button) in the game, but there are no new neighbors there. Is it just me?
