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…..

All new episode of The Simpsons airs tonight…what do you think will happen in the new episode?

Halloween hit our devices this past week, are you enjoying the monster update?  Working your way through the Act 1 prize track?

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  We took Riley to a couple of fall fests yesterday..she had fun.

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!

  1. Hello friends and fellow tappers! Soooo, is anyone else having problems getting into the game today, or are HH and myself just special? LOL

    Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

  2. I upgraded to level 138 yesterday and got Lisa in the Homerlayas. Now she’s gone. What happened?

  3. I visited all you neighbours so don’t forget to clear the handshakes in your Krustyland…. it’s a few more films towards your next prize

    • Thanks Lee

    • Krustyland? I didn’t know we had Krustyland on the game 😛 just kidding of course. 😀 I would actually love some new rides for Krustyland.. And thank you Lee for the Krustyland taps. 🐱🌸⭐️

    • Never! I’d rather pay doughnuts then ever go back to Krustyland. I passed on a 6 doughnut daily task to either gather tickets or play the balloon game. I’m afraid any visit to Krustyland may look to EA like I have any interest in it.

      • It could be good, it’s neglected
        🎠 🎡 🎢 🎪

        😃 🇬🇧

      • I like Krustyland, but that’s probably because I like theme parks in real life. 🎡🎠🎢 (Wait,so Krustyland isn’t real?) 😛 also Ryan, did you finish all the quests/tasks for Krustyland? because you get given a free character, I think her name is princess Penelope.. Even if you don’t like an extra character is always nice. 😀 (Then you can just ‘forget’ about Krustyland again)🌸🌟🐱

        • Oh. I’m a completionist. I go there when I have to. Last time I went there was during last Christmas when you had to send Homer to get parts for ROSA. In fact that was some of my favorite dialogue in the game, when they had to draw the short straw to see who had to go there.
          It’s unfortunate. I love everything in Krustyland. I’d love to incorporate everything into my Springfield. It just doesn’t feel like the same game go me. Heck I even spent doughnuts to get whatever ride that is.
          To be fair to us all they should make it so you can put whatever you want wherever you want. If you want Lisa’s cattle in Krustyland then you should be able to. If you want the tooth chipper in Springfield then so be it.

          • I like the little quests that they have had for Krusyland too. if EA had more quests that included Krustylandland more people might like it again. I love everything in Krustyland too. I like your idea of being able to bring the rides to Springfield, I would love to be able to build a little theme park in regular Springfield. 🎢🎠🎡

    • Always love to see your Krustyland taps (I go there twice a day to correct tickets and do my Sideshow You taps), but, the last time I visited your town (a couple of days ago?), there was nothing left to tap either in your regular Springfield (including Heights) or in your Krustyland. Didn’t get to visit neighbors yesterday, so maybe that’s all fixed now?

  4. Ooh, ooh, some of the lil rat finks now have purple wings this morning!!! Lol, yes I know there supposed to be monsters, but the first time I saw them they looked like rats to me, so I refer to them as the lil speedy rat finks when HH and I banter over the game, LOL!

    HH, did I mention the wings are purple??

  5. Dodgers win! Intense and long game!

  6. #WeinersOut

  7. Ebron, sheesh, sorry about the fat finger/brain cramp spelling error in previous comment. Old lady syndrome, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!! Lol

  8. Welcome to all my new neighbors!! I am amazed at design ingenuity in your towns!! I can only imagine how many hours it took you to build some them and the amount of patience it took as well. Kudos to all of you!

    I am slowly trying organize my town, but I doubt seriously I will ever come close to what some of you have created!! Design ideas from you all would be welcomed, lol!

    Have a TSTO day and “tap on!”

  9. Hello fellow tappers, and a special “howdy do” to HH!!

    So, to all of you that belong to the 939 club, congratulations! Something to be very proud of. I am several hundred away from that anstonomical number, and would like to know if any of you would be willing to share any tips you have on how you accomplished this feat?

    Suerees, HH and I will take pictures when the newest babies make their appearance. That will be around November 1st.

    And, thank you again to all my friends for keeping me busy tap, tap, tapping! I hope this finds all of you well. Have a great night/day!

    • I got to 939 partly by rat trap truck farming to quickly level up. (It helps of you have a healthy bonus multiplier though.)

    • Buy those rat trap trucks, sell those rat trap trucks, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat……
      I am at 939 just this week and I never thought I would hear myself saying the words “love those rat trap trucks” !

    • Is that you, Chewfred? Photos would be great, thanks.🐶🐶🐶🐶

    • It should be pointed out that many Tappers took advantage of a glitch at the beginning of the end… of levels from EA. Levels are now up to you. At the beginning, I believe the glitch gave all levels a 50k upgrade cost, and many Tappers “farmed” to max out.
      I’ve only really partaken in one glitch over the years, which was the level upgrade on the gold pile, but have regretted it ever since.
      The flavour left in my mouth was that I cheated…

  10. Welcome Sean and MacGuffin to my neighborhood. Always great to see new towns and make new friends.
    To all my long time neighbors you rock!!! You are sure keeping me busy clearing camera screens. Thank you one and all. ❤️❤️❤️❤️🎈

  11. Er, wow.
    Um… Welcome lottsa new neighbourinos!

    • Lol, everyone Choo Choo chooses you

    • Hi new neighbour, and Happy Friday yay. Are you excited for the weekend? (My username is lilcutekitty) but you probably guessed that was me from my name. 🌸🐱😀

      • Hey neighbourino! Welcome aboard 🙂
        Weekend was without my lil’ baby, she needed a clutch overhaul, so despite the brilliant weather before the winds picked up yesterday my feet were firmly grounded, no flying high…
        Spent the weekend gardening, slowly getting the property back to looking good again. I kinda neglected it for a bit due to life, er, challenges.
        And you, how was your weekend?

        • thank you Cube, welcome to my Springfield too 🙂 I like your land It looks nice and creative. I agree, It was really nice weather yesterday ☀️ I had a very nice weekend too 😀 now I’m just relaxing and enjoying Sunday night, 🌟🌸⭐️

  12. W00t I just joined the 939 club! When should I expect my membership card? 😀

  13. YES! Go Cubs! Woo Hoo!

  14. Reading some of the recent comments here has made me wonder something… One of the things I like about this site is the sense of community here and one of the evidences of it is the way that people worry, or at least enquire, about regular commenters who seem to have stopped commenting (especially when it’s during some kind of bad event taking place in their area, but certainly not just in that situation). We worry that something might have happened to them.

    So, here’s my weird question for the group… Has anyone else here, besides me, asked a loved one to be sure to let any of their online and/or IRL “communities” (whether it’s this one or another one that maybe you’re more involved with, but not including friends, family, job, an obvious groups like that) know, should anything fatal happen to you?

    • Lol! As much as I hate to say it… Yes. And my clients…and Buyijja friends. Loads and loads…it’s crazy and scary.

    • That is a really great idea. I hadn’t thought about it.
      I’m on Facebook so it wouldn’t be hard to find out from there.

      • But have you asked someone to go into your Facebook account and post for you, should you, god forbid, die or become comatose or something? That’s the kind of thing I’m thinking about… I don’t think I’ve given anyone my Facebook login info, come to think of it, which I really should do, for just such a reason.

        I know that there are companies that will do stuff like that for you…I think you have to check in with them periodically and, if you miss a check-in (or something like that), then they assume that you’re dead and start updating your online social networks to reflect that. But I’d rather use someone in my personal life, like my husband, for that, I think (assuming that we don’t both go together…)

        Well, isn’t this a cheery little subject? 😉 😛

        • Hi Sandra, Chewfred and I have talked about letting friends know on this site if something happens to either of us. Hoping won’t need to post anything in near future.😉
          Best thing about this site is the bond we have developed over the years.
          Alissa you have created a very safe, compassionate, caring huge community, you should be very proud. You have probably effected more people than you can imagine.❤️❤️❤️❤️

        • No, it’s not cheery but necessary. It’s something I tend to avoid. I haven’t even done a will yet. So Thankyou for reminding me. Maybe this is something that can be put in a will.

        • Family can request to have your Facebook “memorialized” I think is the term after a person passes. It is a process we had briefly considered for my gram but we didn’t dig too deep into it. I have no plan to update social media users but I think it is awfully sweet that you have thought about it 🙂

    • I definitely have. When I had a fan twitter account (where I had made friends but we didn’t know each other outside of those accounts for the most part) and I was hospitalized last summer, I had my mom send out a tweet to say what had happened because people were messaging me concerned when I suddenly stopped tweeting for weeks after commenting that I was “tired”. I’m not active there anymore but after I did almost die last summer, I’ve talked to my mom to make sure she lets the people I care about online (namely you guys and my Facebook friends) know if something tragic were to happen. I’ve also left my family a list of my login information in a file just in case. I don’t anticipate anything happening but I’d rather be proactive about it just to be safe

    • This is a good idea😊. i will get a family member to post here on behalf of myself. I took down all my other social media accounts.

  15. I came across something in a neighbors town that has me puzzled . They have 2 Ziff Mansions ,,,,at 1st I thought it was a visual glitch,,but no,,they have 2. Anyways,,,enjoying the event so far. Bought the Crazy Cat Lady Iguana skin with foggy swamp. I probably wouldn’t have gotten it if I had known there was not a % boost on that swamp…got 1 of the “mystery pumpkins ” & got Witch Marge which was what I wanted !! Although I wish more past Halloween characters were helpful,,,I kinda thought Witch Marge,Maude,Pirate Kang,Fairy Koss to name a few,,not to mention the various other Halloween skins that are in the game. It would seem they could’ve utilized more of that in the event. I think a full event with Dr.Hibberts island of evil could’ve been a whole event,,,,lot of great stuff in that eoisode!!! Same with the Hellementary School , ,,great episode with a lot of stuff. Both of those episodes could’ve made good events,,,,just my opinion , ,,,of course! Well,,hope everyone is having a good time with the event.

    • I think I read on the forum that someone had a glitch and got 2 Ziff mansions. If that’s the only weird thing in their town it was just a glitch.

      • They seem to have every single thing EVER released in the game….there is so much stuff it’s hard to see what all is there. Don’t remember hearing about that glitch,tho.

        • It wasn’t widespread, so maybe your neighbor is playing a hacked game. I personally do not keep neighbors who hack or mod or even just have everything piled everywhere.

  16. Guess what I’m wearing!! (Guess quickly because I’m going to give the answer as soon as this parenthesis is done…. I mean it. HAve you guessed?) A freshly delivered ” Tapped 🍩ut Addicts ” t-shirt!!

    now I can advertise the site everywear I go with it – like my living room, my bedroom, my bathroom, anywhere. Maybe even in public 😛

  17. I don’t mean to gloat but I am now a billionaire in this virtual world of tsto and my real estate value is worth 2 billions dollars. In real life, things are a whole lot different..

  18. Hello everyone!!! I read here everyday, but I don’t post very often. I did want to jump in and reiterate a lot of other tappers here though.

    I am so happy to see a “real” Halloween event for a change of pace (sorry Allisa)!! I do have to agree that it is so nice to be able to see who has visited our place, but man oh man it seems to take forever and a day to get the “video boxes” to go away when you tap them! A small price to pay, all things considered!

    I’d like to thank all of my friends who have been so good about tapping in my game. That being said, I have purged some “friends” that haven’t played in some time. :-(. Therefore, I am now looking for a few good folks that love TSTO as much as I do and are daily tappers. :). I’ll also be putting this on the add friends list. Just thought I’d post it here first as if you’re here, you’re serious about tapping, lol!

    My screen name is Chewfred.

    HH and I are continually competing with each other and sharing tips as we figure them out, lol. BTW, did HH tell everyone that our lil family will be increasing around Nov 1st? We’re expecting babies around that time. It looks (feels, lol) like we’ll be having 3-4 of them, at least I hope that’s all we’ll be having!

    I hope everyone has a great day. I’ll try to get better about posting.

    • Hi Chewfred, say hi to HH for me too. The babies you speak of wouldn’t happen to be puppies would they? I would love to see some pics!
      I sent you a request.
      I’ve been hiding neighbours that have 0 on their counters. It amounts to quite a few. I guess if their not playing the Halloween event they mustn’t be true addicts. Either that or they have lives😀

      • Hi Sue,
        Long time no talk☹️! Yes our babies are puppies🐶 to add to the 4 plus 2 cats arghhh turning into a zoo around here. I wasn’t very amused about puppies as its’s my Bogey, and Fred as in Chewfred as in Bogey’s birth mom. Lots of breeders do inbreeding but not us on purpose anyway. Hoping they are all normal, as normal as can be in this family anyway lol. We have a couple of friends who have lost their Shih Tzu’s lately so we have more people waiting than I hope poor lil Fred has. They will be gifts of love.
        Hope all is well on your side of the world. ❤️🐶🐶🐶🐶❤️

    • Hi to you and HH and congrats on the furbabies! Hope everything goes smoothly 🐶 and if you’re so inclined, I would LOVE to see pictures when they arrive

  19. I’ve noticed more Aussies lately 😉
