The faces behind the posts:

 Alissa PNG
Alissa (yes that is my REAL name): I’m in my early 30s and the baby of the blog (but not by much!).  I’m the “head addict”, in that I started everything you see here (with the help of an old childhood friend).  And I strive every day to make it the fun place you know and love!
Born and raised in the “fist bumping” state of New Jersey, where I currently reside with my amazing husband, daughter, Riley (a.k.a the “Tiny Addict”), and son, Sam (a.k.a the “Baby Addict”).  I’m a (sometimes) proud graduate of Rutgers University…with a degree in English.   As for my “real job””…I know, I have a job besides this blog?  Really?! Surprises me too!… I do sales and marketing for a metal manufacturing company.
My husband, Riley, Sam, and I are avid baseball fans, and spend loads of time during baseball season going to games 🙂

Birthday: June 19th
Favorite Simpsons Character
: I love them all…but like Marge my favorite would have to be good ole’ Homey.   Such a lovable oaf!
Favorite Episode: “Homer At Bat”.  I giggle every time I watch it, especially now when I see the Simpsonized Cartoons of Donnie Baseball, The Rocket, the Strawman…and others.
Favorite TSTO time of year: Christmas!!!!
Favorite TSTO Character: Duffman…mostly because I love when he says “Duffman is here to refill your beer!”
Favorite TSTO Building: Duff Stadium.  How could I not love a baseball stadium?!
Favorite TSTO task: Hank Scorpio’s Test Flame Thrower!  It makes me giggle every time!
Aspirations in Life: Take over the world?  Does that count?  🙂
Embarrassing Confession: While on my honeymoon in Jamaica a few years ago, I was forced to go “off the grid” (and to keep it that way my husband locked my phone in the safe!), meaning no tapping and no blog!  I would literally be on a float in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean, 80-degree weather, drink in my hand and turn to my husband and say “I wonder how the blog is doing…”  “I hope they didn’t blow up the blog”

Wookiee PNGWookiee Avatar in real life

Note from Alissa: Wookiee is a full-time student, working on his masters, and works full-time As much as he’d like to, his schedule doesn’t always allow him the flexibility to write posts for Addicts these days (although you never know when he may pop in with a post or two).  He is still very much a part of this site (and always will be), just mostly behind the scenes.  He does try to make appearances on Addicts Live when his schedule allows, and that’s generally the best way to find him on this site.  You can also find him on his weekly Podcast, Laugh it Up Fuzzball.

Wookiee:  30 something father of three.  Served almost 14 years in the USAF and going to school to be a history teacher (hence all my free time for this mess).

Real Name: Joey or Joe (or Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo)
Birthday: May 16th
Favorite Simpsons Character: Comic Book Guy.  I am an uber-geek at heart. Star Wars, comic books, science fiction, fantasy, cosplay, occassional Trek.  He is everything that is good with the world (besides the obesity lol).
Favorite Episode: Season 4, Episode 12 (Marge vs. the Monorail)This is arguably the best episode.  It was written by Conan O’Brien AND Leonard Nimoy made a cameo!
Favorite TSTO time of year: Halloween
Favorite TSTO Character: The Rich Texan (just his sayings make this an easy one for me. After all, “America’s not a place for seatbelt-wearing cowards.”
Favorite TSTO Building: Abe Lincoln’s Cabin.  I’m a huge history buff so having one of the Best. Presidents. Ever. in my town is righteous!
Favorite TSTO task: Without a question, CBG’s 12 hour Cosplay Task. Although not a trekkie, anything that pays homage to my fellow geeks and/or sci-fi has my love.
Aspirations in Life: To write fiction for a living and to someday record an album of my own music.  It hopefully is obvious I like to write words but I also really love to sing.  If you ever want to know what auditioning for The Voice is like, let me know, I seriously auditioned for it in December 2013.  Sang Broken Road by Rascall Flatts (originally by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and was told I sing well but that I wasn’t what they were looking for.  Guess I’ll stick to my “day job”.
Embarrassing Confession: I have scheduled my TSTO tasks around my real life AND sometimes prefer the company of other Addicts to family and friends.

Patric (a.k.a Cranky Old Guy): Patric J. Miller  has a long, storied background in broadcasting and multimedia production, including writing and arranging the music for the Emmy Award winning Claymation Christmas Celebration for CBS and Atlantic Records. It was there he became enthralled with animated story-telling, as well as meeting  Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s brother-in-law, animator Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!, PeeWee’s Playhouse, Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train), part of his six-degrees-of separation from Bart Simpson.
Happily married for almost 35 years, with 5 daughters (I’ll let that sink in), and 4 grandkids, Patric continues to explore a rich tapestry of interests and vocations outside of the “Tapping World.”

Birthday: January 1st (Baby New Year!)
Favorite Simpsons Character: 
Marge. She is the glue of the family, and the moral compass of the whole town of Springfield. Her only failing is her greatest asset….loyalty. Oh. And she’s hot. Great bod!
Favorite Episode: Really? One out of 27 years? I like the early ones, because we were just getting to know the Simpsons as a family- and the episodes had more of a “family sit-com” feel. HOWEVER…one of my favorites ever is “Missionary Impossible”- (S11E15) It has EVERYTHING…Guest Stars – Betty White, Fred Rogers, Yo-Yo Ma, the Teletubbies, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Elmo, Mulder and Scully from The X Files, Hank Hill from King of the Hill and Bender from Futurama and even FOX’s Rupert Murdoch!  It has Homer trying to “help a third world jungle village” (sound familiar?) and has one of my favorite catch phrases of all time (that my entire family has adopted),”SAVE ME JEEBUS!” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missionary:_Impossible
Favorite TSTO Time of the Year: Christmas. I love seeing our towns in snow. Now if we could get them to be snow at night….I’d be a happy guy.
Favorite TSTO Character: I used to be a Dr. Nick guy…but now, without a doubt, it is “Old Jewish Man.”  I have adopted a bunch of his TSTO dialogue in real life (“YOU smell like cobbler!”) and have adopted “no pants Thursdays” as an homage to his “Drop His Pants for a Change” task.
Favorite TSTO Building:
Well…I’m going with a “dark horse” here…not the obvious one. I like the Springfield Country Club, because it is the centerpiece for my country club golf course…which is part of the expansive resort/casino area. I love the golf course…because I love golf.
Favorite TSTO Task: Well…judging by how long she has been baking in her bikini…perpetually…I was going to choose Mindy’s “Work on Tan” task. But, my actual favorite continues to be Mona’s “Feed the Birds”…because it is with Grandpa…and I have them situated, so it looks like they are feeding pigeons into a black hole.
Aspirations in Life:At my “advanced age,” my time and inclination for aspirations are narrowing. I have done a lot in my life…and other than “aspire” to writing a best-selling book or two…I guess I would have to aspire to the one thing I wanted to be as a kid…a Pirate-Fireman-Astronaut.  There’s time left…
Embarrassing Confession: I once faked an “upset stomach” to escape the morning festivities of my sister’s wedding (which she was having in a state park) so I could drive 20 miles to a grocery store to “get some Pepto Bismol” but actually wanted to use their “free WiFi” to complete an update before the timer ran out. I made it back in time for the wedding, and nobody was the wiser.

Safi (aka Super Safi): Safi started out as a contributor for Addicts, but joined the staff full time in the Summer of 2017
I’m a Canadian Addict who is a huge The Simpsons fan. I watch and re-watch every episode, collect the collectibles, comic books, trading cards, puzzles, and most other merchandise. I knew about The Simpsons Tapped Out and was very eager to get it before I started playing, but didn’t have a compatible device. When I got my iPad on July 31st, 2013, Tapped Out was the first app I downloaded. Been frequenting TSTO Addicts since the first week of October 2013 and regularly commenting since December 2013.
Outside of The Simpsons, I’m a huge Batman fan, Wayne Gretzky fan, sports fan (Toronto Blue Jays, Montreal Canadians, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC, New Orleans Saints), and enjoy watching TV shows (The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Gotham, Suits, Modern Family, New Girl, etc.).

Birthday: April 24th
Favorite Simpsons Character: 
I’d have to go with Milhouse Van Houten, just barely edging out Ralph Wiggum.  “Remember the time he ate my goldfish, and you lied to me and said I never had any goldfish? Then why did I have the bowl Bart? Why did I have the bowl?”
Favorite Episode:“Homer at the Bat” (S03, E17) – As a fan of The Simpsons and baseball, this was a great episode. It featured a couple of future Toronto Blue Jays in Jose Canseco and Roger Clemens, both of whom would later be faces of the ‘steroid era’.
Favorite TSTO Time of the Year: As a predominantly freemium player who only purchases premium characters when they go on sale, my favourite time of year is Black Friday. Love those donut rebates. I tend to save up year round and buy as many characters as I can at Black Friday.
Favorite TSTO Character: Sideshow Mel – He was my second premium purchase and first premium character, purchased during the Black Friday sale in November 2015 (if you’re curious, my first premium purchase was the Canadian Flag for 5 donuts in June 2015).
Favorite TSTO Building: Aesthetically, I’d have to go with Duff Stadium. Who doesn’t love a baseball stadium.
Functionally, I love the feature of sending all characters en masse at the Office of Unemployment.
Favorite TSTO Task: Any of Duffman’s “Party Down at …” tasks. I don’t care if it’s at school, church, Moe’s or the penitentiary. Thumbs Up to Party Down!
Aspirations in Life: To quote one Homer Jay Simpson, “All my life I’ve had one dream: to achieve my many goals”.
Embarrassing Confession: This one time, a website moderator asked me for my most embarrassing confession and I couldn’t think of anything. I must confess, it was so embarrassing.


Inactive Addicts

Note From Alissa and Wookiee: One question we get asked a lot is “Where’s Bunny?”.  Bunny was an integral part of this site from the start until the summer of 2016.  Since then Bunny has stepped away from the game (she hasn’t played in years) and this site.  She has her own reasons for doing this, despite our encouragement for her to continue. We wish her all the best.


Contributors…

From time to time  you’ll see posts from an Addicts Contributor, Totbox.  Here’s more info about them…

tot-icon-smile-background

Totbox: Greetings seekers of unnecessary knowledge, You might know me best from the Totbox’s Throwback Thursdays (and sometimes Tuesdays) posts. Creativity is my life force and that is why I enjoy making Musing posts. Hoped you enjoyed and continue to enjoy my posts through the remainder of our/my current space/time :p

Favorite Simpsons Character: (Wise Guy) Raphael. I love his unpredictable appearances and his sarcastic/dry wit which to me outmatches Comic Book Guys.
Favorite Episode: “Who Shot Mr. Burns (part 1)” is my answer if there was a gun to my head. “Homer the Great” (Stonecutter episode) would be close second.
Favorite TSTO time of year: Halloween, Tree House Of Horror, It’s something I look forward to each year. Whether it lives up to my expectations is another story.
Favorite TSTO Character: I’ll have to go with Maggie, flying with her red balloon, plus the Where’s Maggie Game. Got to love that tiny tot. 🙂
Favorite TSTO Building: Office of Unemployment (for it’s functionality). (I bet you thought it was the school for Tots) :p
Favorite TSTO task: No matter where/how-long he’s doing it, Duffman’s partying down dancing.
Aspirations in Life: Find a creative companion, continue making people think and smile, and do nothing that I don’t have to, yet get everything that I neglected done before my last day.
Embarrassing Confession: plenty of moments to choose from (but I’ll bring up one of the happy embarrassing moments). In high school, there was a new substitute teacher named Mrs. Outhouse. She introduced herself and told the class she heard all the jokes and wanted us to get it out of our systems. “So, anyone have something to say, say it now” a silence fell, as the entire class turned to me. Blushing I said “no, I’m ok”.
Well, that’s all the space/time I have to share for now, enjoy your continued journey -Totbox :p

  5. Wanna say a big thank you for creating this site. It helps folks like me a lot, who don’t have much time (or donuts) to fiddle around and find out the game’s intricacies. I’m a freemium player and just started to play more regularly since Superheroes Event. Visited this site daily and learn new things each time. Love the posts headlined “Should I Buy”. More amazed at how you guys have walkthroughs and dialogues for every level, including premiums (does this mean you guys have every single player / building).

    Keep up the good work!

  7. Hi all I have been playing this game for a few years on and off then started back up more regular think found the time of the stone cutters did not have many neighbours and am a freemium player plus life gets in the way at times so hardly ever complete the tasks fully. I came a cross your site recently and read where people were saying what they wanted to happen next and speculating a Valentine’s game meant to suggest that it would be nice to revisit old tasks to give people a chance to complete them but did not get round to it. THINK EA must have read my mind lol.

  8. I have been a avid tapper for a couple years now, in the last year I have started looking for more friends and information on the game. I would like to say Thank you to your whole team for such an invaluable place for everything involving the game, and all of your dedicated work, along with keeping the peace;). Within the last couple of days I have subscribed to two of your threads, one being the add a friend thread. Out of the 100+ emails a day that I have read I have noticed a few things, that I would like to respectively point out. In an older post your team introduced a Thank you thread so players had another way to communicate, (on a side note, I really appreciate that availability) so my thought is this. Wouldn’t it be just as useful to make an apology thread? I know myself and what I have read, people get pretty upset when they get tagged, so my thought is how far back are they really going to look back in the posts to look for an apology. Also with coming close to having all the friends I am allowed, and all the emails that will not be of use at the time, I will probably like most people have, unsubscribe from that particular thread. I would think it would be more convenient for your team and the community to cross reference the two threads than jumble them into one. Hopefully making it so you don’t have to keep saying “they did apologize”, and making it easier for the victimized tapper to find their amends. I do apologize for the long winded commentary but I am hoping this outlook may make things easier on you and the community. Again Thank you for your hard work now and in the future.

    • Thanks for your feedback. We have dabbled in the “I’m Sorry” thread too in a way, but it honestly never was used. We have found, sadly, most people just really do not want to take the time or effort to read ANYTHING. Whether it is in the comments, another post, or right in front of them.

      All we can do is hope that readers will start to get a better feel to utilize what we DO have. Look around in the posts they are commenting on. Read other readers feedback. It really is a GREAT source of information right in front of them.

      I offer you the same question you pose to us…will a reader really want to take the time to find the “I’m sorry” post, scan comments for their name or the taggers name, and really utilize the option?

      My best suggestion is this…use our Search Tool. Not the one at the side/end…but the one in the Menus. It works like Google. Many can find almost anything with just a keyword. Possibly even their very own name and posts. 🙂

      Other than that, it is really up to each person to change their way of thinking and “instant” reaction. Be understanding of others and that mistakes can and will happen. Be kind and accepting to neighbors. And just take a few moments of time to really open your eyes and look around you. May be surprised what you find. 🙂

      Hope all that make sense. We really do love to help. Honestly. If we feel a change or post is needed, we will make it. But until we see readers using what is available to them and not wasting it, we feel it not necessary to start another wasted space, if you get my meaning. 🙂

    • Actually it did. I think if you looked at it again and re read it over…from an outside view not your own…it did tend to be a bit degrading to others on this site and could have started anger towards what was said.

      We want to keep specific things drama free. I understand your side. I do know what you were referring to as the “locations” are actually no too far from where I grew up. Regardless…we ALWAYS want to shine a better light on any situation and keep the more “flame” prone topics out. Those are more for a discussion on another location and not here.

  16. Hello, my name is Nimbus, and I am a TSTO Addict. (“Hi Nimbus!”)
    I have been an addict since TSTO’s release, and then re-release, and have been a reader and watcher of “The Little Blog That Could” from the beginning. This site is different from all of the others, it gives you more than game information, it gives you 2d, and 3d designs, contests, invaluable opinions, quick comments responses and what games are really about, FUN AND LAUGHTER.

    Of anyone, the Addicts are as close as you come to TSTO Customer Service professionals who go the extra mile to answer your questions, debug your problems, and make you laugh.

    You laugh, then cry, then tap, the laugh again, all knowing that it’s okay because you’re not alone. Yes, it’s an addiction, but so is breathing if you think about it…

    To you three, bravo! Of every TSTO site out there, I honestly consider this one to be the OFFICIAL UNOFFICIAL site for The Simpsons Tapped Out, and I don’t believe a word, rumor, picture, or comment I see anywhere else, unless and until it’s here.

    Recently came across the site and it’s amazing! Can’t get enough of it! 🙂

    I’m a fairly new tapper, currently at level 26 🙂 but I was just wondering do you know if they re-release the limited edition characters at all? I’m a bit of a completionist and would like to get some of the characters that I can’t seem to get at this current time (Brandine, Yes guy, Kumiko)! 🙂 any response would be great! 😀

    • From time to time they’ll bring back and old character or decoration, but not everything. So it’s hard to say what they might do in the future. They’ve brought back a variety of characters & buildings, but mostly from a time period when the game was only on iOS & not yet on Android. So anything can happen…but there are still a LOT of items that were released and never released again (like the Falls)

      And thank YOU for the kind words! 🙂

    I posted a few questions and/or comments recently. They await moderation for a while and then never appear. Fortunately, I’ve been able to get my questions answered on other TSTO sites, but have always appreciated your insights and gentle humor. My email & and name work okay on the “add friends” threads on this site, but my questions under “help me” etc. never show. If I’m doing something wrong, please let me know.

    Like

    • Hi there susan!
      Sometimes we wait for comments to get past moderation if there’s a question that requires a lot of detail to answer. This is just because we can’t necessarily address it right at that moment but we always get back to them.
      Friend comments get pushed quick because they require little to no response from us, so we try to make sure those go right through. Question comments usually take a little longer depending on the question.
      That being said I just had a quick look through all of the comments on the site (approved, pending, deleted and spammed) and only saw a handful from you, all of which were approved. So if there are other comments out there of yours that are still in moderation on your end, we don’t see them here. Could be an issue with Word Press, I know other readers are commenting that their comments sometimes disappear.
      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • The two questions that I never saw posted/answered were from a while back, but I think it was my error because I have now learned a big lesson in patience! Because I get so spoiled by the fact that you guys respond to comments almost faster than I can offer them, I obviously failed to wait long enough for my post earlier today.

        When I saw that my comment had gone from “awaiting moderation” to “no appearance,” I thought it had gone the way of the other two. But, as Alissa pointed out, it just took time.

        Please forgive my impatience. I was so worried that I had violated protocol or was doing something wrong. At least you know how much I rely on your site, so there’s that! Mea culpa, mea culpa.

I missed the whacking Day last year and Pray they do it again, Bunny if you read this, maybe you can send a message along to the developers that many people (cuz Ive seen a lot of people say they want whacking day), want whacking day and if they are already were planning it, maybe gives us an update. Or if they weren’t planning the whacking Day event, the tell them that a lot of premium paying, everyday playing, love this game kinda players would love to have them start developing that event :-), OR sadly, if they confirm there is no whacking day, for sure, let us know that as well. so we don’t get our hopes up for nothing. I’m passionate about this game, as i’m sure you are as well or you wouldn’t of created this page, but I’m passionate about it cuz not only do I love it and have loved the Simpsons in general all my life but cuz I’m sick, I have stage 3 HS and I spend a lot of time in many invasive surgical recoveries, or sick in general and this game gets me excited again about something that ive loved all my life ❤ If only you knew the extent of my Simpsons collection, LOL, I got everything from Duff beer, to Simpson Pogs, to 20 different Simpson themed board games, several hundreds of novelties items, puzzles, posters, the Simpson chia pet 😛 to every single Simpson comic book starting from #1 (original) to like somewhere in the late 100's like 170. I had to stop collecting cuz I got sick, I wish I could get the remanding ones, t finish up my collection! Maybe one day 🙂 I know Im late to the game, i just realized there was one in December )at the end of the gift card/ presents Christmas event) and I leveled up real quick to 39+, if there were higher levels id be somewhere in the late 40's. So I missed Halloween 😦 (my favorite holiday) but back my my original point, Whacking Day, I always loved that episode!

    • Hey there Addict!!! Glad you like our lil community of writers. So happy you found us. 🙂

      It would be cool to see BOTH a Whacking Day and Easter come around this year. EA has tossed in a lot of surprises for us. I did have fun with WD last year as it was when I first joined the community as well as met Fuzzball and the others that brought me to this site of Awesome people.

      I feel for what you are going through. It is not an easy feat. I am glad you are able to find amusement and solace in a silly lil game. Your collection sounds AMAZING. I would love it if you were to send us some pictures of it. TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. I may even share it with the rest of the community if that is ok with you?

      I am anxious to see what they have up their sleeves. I do have to admit to pestering the heck out of them to give me a BUNNY HOLIDAY. Lol. I am a lil partial to the furry creatures. Wonder why? I have voiced my wish of getting those snakes back too, just not so long of an event this go around. Though it looks like they have got a better handle on how to function with the events. I am quite impressed at how far this lil game has come.

      For me too, it has become my escape when my personal life was shattered. I found open arms and caring people here and continue to grow friendships that will outlast any silly lil game, so I as well am very grateful to a game and a great community of readers such as yourself for giving me a place to come and be welcomed and overall…just smile and laugh. 😉

  26. Can you look into the problem that many users are having with gifts cards not yielding spin tokens anymore. EA seems to not care about it. We know that they read the blogs. Maybe a little pressure would light a fire under their collective butts. Thanks.

    • TSTO is a huge money maker for EA so I’m sure they care about any glitches that could lose them customers. Unfortunately, we don’t work for them but will of course see what we can find out. Please make sure you’re still letting them know too. When I lost a character, I made sure I was the squeaky wheel and contacted them frequently.

  28. I’ve been wondering how many people read this blog. TSTO Topix, the successor to “the other site,” hit 2,000,000 hits several days ago. I imagine your site is a little smaller, but I’m curious to know the exact numbers. Thanks!

  29. I have a question/request about this site. When we leave a comment, we can choose to receive emails regarding that post. I was just wondering if there is a way to receive emails only from the replies to my comment so I dont get flooded with irrelevant conversations. If theres an option im not aware of, id like to know about it and if it doesnt exist, Im kindly suggesting it be added (if thats possible) Thanks and keep up the good work. -Marie

    • Hey Marie… doesn’t seem to be any way to adjust these setting at present but thanks for the suggestion! We’ll keep looking in to it for the future. Best advice would be to unsubscribe from the comment thread if it’s overwhelming you.
