Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!
For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well. Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol. It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise.
Update 2/28: This thread was getting pretty full and some of you were getting “lost in the shuffle” so we’ve decided to close friend requests on this post. ALL of your Origin ID’s will still be readable in the comments of this post, you just will no longer be able to comment on this specific post. Instead we’ll move all Add Me requests back to our original post which can be found here. 🙂
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well it’s just before 9:45 AM here on the East Coast and still no update! But I’m taking advantage of the quiet here at the Addicts offices (I may have given Bunny a little too much “Water” and Wookiee a few too many Cheetos last night, so it would be quiet around here this morning) and doing a little “housekeeping” around the blog. You may be noticing some of the changes already (like to the menu structure at the top) and don’t worry I’ll reveal the full details of everything once complete. BUT for now I figured let’s address probably the number 2 reason you’re all here (I know the number 1 reason is for our humor and cheesy jokes right?! 😀 )….to find Tapped Out Friends!
As you most likely have already noticed (and used) we have a handy link in the top menu as well as an icon in the side bar over there —–>
for quick access to finding and adding those much needed TSTO Friends! BUT currently there are close to 10,000 Add Me requests on those previous Friends Pages. While we LOVE that you guys are all adding Neighbor-eenos and filling up your friends lists we don’t love (and you guys don’t either) that you often have to comb through THOUSANDS of requests just to find someone to Add. OR you guys adding your name just to have it buried under other requests that come in at the same time.
So we’ve come up with a solution!
We’re going to do posts, like this one, regularly for you guys to Add Friend requests to. Once the comments and Add Me Requests reaches a certain number (we’re not sure on the number yet) we’ll start a new Add Me Post and keep doing it until….the end of time! Ok not that dramatic but you get the idea. We’ll also do specific posts for Events (Like Christmas, Valentines, Whacking Day…etc). All of these posts will be complied under 1 simple quick link at the top of the page. The same link you use today…Add Friends. (the little icon on the side bar will also be linked to the most current Add Friends Post) So you’ll quickly be able to see where to add your name, as well as search older posts to find friends to add. Make sense?
Now if you’ve already added your name to the old page and are wondering if your previous Add Me request will be lost…DON’T PANIC! We’re going to quick link to those Pages on the first few Add Friend Posts like this:
….and we’ll have another quick link to access them from the Menu.
Note: The ability to make “Add Me” requests on those pages has been disabled. You can still see requests previously added, but no new comments can be added. Now that we’re doing things this way, any “Add Me” request to any other post, unless it specifically says add your Origin ID OR you write a comment relevant to the post itself and leave your Origin ID with it, will NOT be approved. I hate to be a Grumple about it but it’s for your own good…I promise!
Confused? I’m sorry…once I’ve hit publish on this post and updated the menu (can’t do it until this post is up there) I’ll take some screenshots of the new structure and update this post so you can figure out just what I’m talking about.
So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests! Who wants to be first?
So while I sit here going through all your comments, I can’t help but to giggle a little. Only a few months back we started this lil blog with the outlook of “sit back, relax, and share our fun and enjoyment with others”. We have come a long way since.
In that time, we started voicing our opinions over and over. Our “wish lists” if you will of ways that EA could make the game friendlier and easier to use. EA is really taking a look at all we say (Us and YOU) and has now made some pretty cool changes to the game that we have been asking for.
