Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, 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!

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 Simpsons are back and brand new for 2016!  What do you think will happen in tonight’s episode?  The Maggie Act of the Winter Event hit our games yesterday, what are your thoughts on the new stuff?  Excited about the prizes?
How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?
Around the world we all rang in 2016 a couple of days ago, how was your New Year’s Eve?  Do anything fun?  Make any resolutions for 2016?
Sunday Night Football tonight features the Vikings at the Packers.  Something you’ll be checking out?  Did your team play earlier today?  How’d they do?

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!

new year

  1. Just finished first find Maggie,yeah! Figured out don’t tap Maggie ,but the building she is on . Had to spend 300k to get 3 donuts,that’s ok,hope find Maggie mini game continues past event!😀

  2. I hope this doesn’t sound like a silly question but here goes… Can anyone tell me why on occasion all buildings,houses,etc become active as though a character are on task there when they are not? Must be logical explanation…….. Confused.

  3. Am I completely misremembering things, or did yoga mat making used to only take 7 minutes? I was looking just now and it said 8 minutes, but I know I always *thought* it was 7 minutes. Anyone know for sure?

  4. Hi Sandra and all other tappers out there!
    Back pain got to point I couldn’t walk or get out of pain. Doc said go to emergency. They finally got around to giving me injections late, so kept me over. Honestly was in so much pain didn’t think of IPad till I was sitting around waiting. Also somehow got some kind of infection, I swear I need a new body!
    My phone is so full of pics & videos no room for game😥. It took me long time to get smart phone& never played a video game in my life until I game across TSTO, love the Simpsons, came across it in App Store, and another TSTO addict was born. Then I come across this game & addiction worsened😉. I love this site and that we get to communicate with pep all over the world!
    Well off to catch me some bears hopefully, we are having very strange thunder storm usually don’t have them in January. My doggies not amused they scare Hank & no walk tonight!
    Looks like lots of pep are having bad weather across country. How are things up your way?
    Also Lee, saw article on weather channel about some weird pink bottles showing up on England beaches. Are they close to you, and what’s up with that? Was just a short clip on my phone.
    Hope everyone stays safe!

      Sorry to hear of your discomfort. Hopefully you are feeling better now.
      ( Perhaps if you made your phone weigh less – try deleting a number of those photos?)

    • Hope you’re OK and feeling better now …
      The pink bottles were fabric conditioner, just another container falling off a ship in bad weather but not sure where on our coast it came ashore ….I did glance it on the news but didn’t pay attention,

      but anyway forget all that for some proper news,……we’re getting a rescue dog so our home won’t be empty anymore 🐩 🐕

      • Good morning Lee, afternoon for you! So happy to hear you are getting a doggie, especially a rescue so many need homes and I’m sure you are going to provide a loving home. Rescues can be a challenge in beginning especially if abused, but once they know they are safe & loved they make the best. I’ve rescued 4, and everyone was a joy, My Hank is a rescue & he us so loving. Makes me smile & laugh everyday. Enjoy and defiantly most important news posted! 😀🐶

    • Hi HH . Commiseratons on your back pain , hope it gets better soon
      As Lee says , oink bottles from a container lost off a ship . Washing up on beaches down the coast from me in Cornwall . Thousands so far , at least being bright pink they are finding them easily . Incredible what is dumped/lost at sea and washes up on our Devon and Cornwall beaches .
      Even had a dead Wright’s whale wash up a few years back . Sad to see it but amazed to see one close up and realise how big it was . 🙂

      • Thanks Phil, yes getting very tired of dealing with my back. Have to say Bunny warned me could be bad for a very long time. Most wise our Bunny is!
        Yeas amazing the rubbish that washes up these days on beaches. Here in Florida we even get large amounts of illegal drugs occasionally.
        Hope all is well with you, Cheers!

  5. Just wanted to apologise to vtholencik, I accidentally vandalised your town, very sorry 🙁

  6. Hmmmmm…
    Ok, just thinking, now we have regular previous content appearing, if the TSTO-programmers didn’t “switch off” the triggers for previous content, when the dates roll around again does it mean some previous content is reset when stored and then placed in event?

  7. Hehehe, interesting glitch, just doing some rearranging and stored the Nativity Scene, after placing it back it reset the tasks associated with it!

    • Yeah – I brought mine out of storage for the holidays and it put the stupid task in my task book. Even storing it again wouldn’t get rid of it and I definitely haven’t been able to spare those characters for 16 hours to re-do the task. I’m just hoping that, once the event is over, the task will go away. I already have one “pemanent” task in my task book, Bobo (since I have no intention of ever doing that stupid Money Mountain thing), but at least he’s kinda cute!

    • Tracy - 1ltwoody920

      Had the same thing happen to me. Stored it to make room, since it is post-Christmas, and realized it provided a multiplier. I Immediately brought it back out and had four 16 hour tasks required to clear it.

  8. Brianspaugh, I’m sooooooo sorry vandalized your own,you got it tapping stupid bears. Go ahead vandalize me and do it again for punishment, going off to sit in bad girl’s corner 😥

  9. What’s up with the fortress still been purple?

  10. This post is just a test, trying to see if certain html code works on wordpress or not. This is a test.

    • I don’t think it did, since I don’t see any special formatting or anything… What were you trying to do, if you don’t mind my asking?

      • on other forums you could do html code to change the color of the text, in some cases to match the background. That way spoilers would be “hidden” for anyone that didn’t want to read them, and the ones that do want to read, could highlight the area to read the hidden text. Wanted to mention something about the new Star Wars movie but was attempting to hide the potential spoilers from those that didn’t want to read them. The second “this is a test” was supposed to be in white, didn’t work as intended.

        • Yeah – I don’t think WordPress allows for much in the way of HTML formatting in comments…you can do italics (I used to do italics here sometimes, but it’s usually not worth the effort…faster to just use asterisks around the word/phrase to connote that), and I’m assuming bold and underlined as well, but that may be the limit. (If anyone’s successfully done any other kind of formatting in the comments, feel free to correct me!)

          And thanks for being sensitive about Star Wars spoilers…I still haven’t been able to get tickets to that yet (although, to be fair, I’ve been sick most of this week, so I decided to just stay home and finish recovering today….maybe I should take a look for tomorrow, if I’m feeling more rested later today….).

          • Hope you are feeling better soon. Saw the movie myself the other day, loved it, and have a theory about episode 8 and 9 when they happen. Want to share it, but by doing so, would potentially reveal a couple characters that others may or may not know exist. So its not really spoiling the movie, but characters in the movie, not as bad, but meh lol.

          • I got into a discussion with one of my best friends about the appropriate length of time to drop spoilers. He says a week. Not for this movie. At least a month. My boyfriend still hasn’t seen it. I’ve only seen it once and I think it’s leaving the theater in my neighborhood this week.
