Tapped Out Premium Walkthroughs: Mr. Burns and the Sepulcher of Evil

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So yesterday saw the arrival of a “creepy” Halloween Gil Deal for the Sepulcher of Evil.  For 225 donuts this large evil decoration could be yours.

We broke down the pros and cons of this Gil Deal yesterday, and one of the pros is that it came with a questline for Mr. Burns.  It’s a 5 part questline full of some fun and humor, with an awesome task for Burnsy at the Sepulcher of Evil.

So let’s take a look at the walkthrough that appears if/when you purchase this Gil Deal…and just what Evil Mr. Burns has planned!

Addicts Housekeeping Note: Comment Awaiting Moderation

Update: The Awaiting Moderation problem should be fixed now.  Let me know if you continue to see problems.  One thing I will say is I didn’t see a message if I wasn’t logged into a WordPress account.  So if you’re not seeing the message it could be because you’re not logged in….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a quick post about something many of you are commenting on (and emailing us about)….the Comment Awaiting Moderation message that’s disappeared.

Typically when you comment on TSTOAddicts you see a message that looks like this when you initially make a comment:

comment mod

But since this past weekend, many of you have pointed out that the awaiting moderation message has disappeared…as has your comment.  While we still see your comments on our end, you guys don’t realize they went through and often times will comment again (and again) or email us wondering if you’ve been banned for some reason.

Here’s the deal….this is a bug on WordPress’ end.  It took a little while, but we’ve finally figured out (after working with WP) what’s happening and why it’s happening.  So over the course of today I’m going to take the steps necessary to correct the problem. (unfortunately it’s not as simple as WP “flipping a switch”).  So the site may look a little funky for a few minutes today…but all the content will still be there and by the time I’m done the “Awaiting Moderation” message will come back.

Sorry for the frustration and anger this may have caused some of you.  I know we saw several emails from people wondering why they were banned from the site.  I promise we haven’t banned anyone…it’s just a bug that we’ll now fix. 🙂

Thanks for your patience with this!

Conform-O-Meter Catch Up: Halloween of Horror and THOH Episode Tie-Ins & Gil’s Halloween Deal

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With so many updates hitting us rapid fire the last couple of weeks, I haven’t had a chance to post the conform-o-meter impacts for each of these mini updates.  Which means it’s the perfect time for a Conform-O-Meter catch up post!

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

As many of you know by now only Level Updates make changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, so with the two episode tie-ins and Gil deal (even THOH) no changes were made to the Conform-O-Meter.  However, several items were added that impact our meters.  So let’s take a look at them now… Continue reading
