    Hmmm, how about family members... and family farming...
    I have a big family, many sisters and brothers, some of them live with me. My brother had a farm, he just asked to delete it, he didn't want to play anymore.
    (Yes, we did inform GGS about 2 accounts in same family.)
    Now my sister wants to start her own farm, actually she wanted it a while ago, but i don't want anymore farms in family, 2 is enough. Now after my brothers farm has been deleted, sister can start her own.

    So is it possible that i can be her mentor?????? i don't want to start a new farm, i still have a lot of work to do with my current farm.

    I don't know if i have understood everything... I'd love to be her mentor and we really would like to play "together". Or does this all mean that i we both have to create a new account, in other server...( noooo, i don't want to)

    Hope you understand what i mean ;)

    I am thrilled about the County Fair. I too enjoyed the easter egg hunts. It also sounds like the Fair will have some fun new elements as well.
    About this invite a friend thing--All of my friends who do not play have threatenend to disown me if I say ONE MORE WORD about Big Farm!
    I guess I will hit the streets and become a Big Farm dealer: "Hey, ya wanna play a fun farm game? I promise, it's not addictive at all!" HeeHee

    •Once a new player registers with your invitation link, you will become best friends.
    •Best friends are bonded players that can work together for additional rewards.
    But...but...I want to be best friends with the friends I already have. cute-blue-bird-crying-smiley-emoticon.gif
    New Event: The county fair is almost here!

    Sounds fun! I really liked finding the eggs hidden in the farm environment so I look forward to finding candy too!
    •Temporary farms - Island, Viking and Northern Lights farms now display a grid in construction mode, making it easier to place buildings.

    YAY! Thank you!! 200811294145.gif~original

    I heard that you can ask support for permission to have a family member start another account on your server and things. It wouldn't be double accounting that way. :)

    I love that the County Fair is on it's way! As for the "invite a friend" feature, not much use for older folk like myself. Most of my friends are pushing up daisies. animated-flower-image-0085.gif

    Dara15, you and your sister can play together and you can be her mentor indeed. Just wait for the update to hit, generate the link, give it to her, make her create a new account on the same server and your accounts will be linked. :)

    Once you're done, just make sure to let support know that there is a new family member playing, using the same IP. They might ask for proof that you live in the same building, but that is an easy thing to give. Just follow their instructions and you're good to go.

    D'awwww, stop making my heart melt, jess_d.

    We know you'd like to become best friends with your existing friends and we're already contemplating ways to make interactions with your friends a little easier.

    The mentoring program and all rewards coming with it will be limited to referral of new friends, though.

    Regards,
    Steffi

    Hmm..candy..really, that's nice. Friends? Hmm..really.. I hope you don't remind us daily to invite friends like some games. Please keep that on an unassuming corner, where I won't accidentally click it, and where it won't interrupt my farming. Please don't make the friends thing a spam in game. I don't like this feature, but you're the game owner, and there are those who like this new feature, so fine, just don't continually remind us to invite friends. Deal, ggs? And, I think, Dara, yes she can play together and be best friends with your current farm, as long as her farm is created AFTER the update, AND she clicked the invitation link you send from your current farm when she created that farm.

    The word pyramid was floating around in my head too, aaabbb1. I'll not have anything to do with this. I'm all for mentoring new players and doing something positive for the game as a whole. But I'll not be used to get new players for GGS.

    I'm looking forward to the candy hunt and for the fair itself when it comes, but I'm really not looking forward to having something on screen showing I'm Katy-no-friends.
    My friends aren't gamers so I have no one to invite, but I would like the option of mentoring in game low level players.

    I am looking forward to the pre-country fair events and the country fair, although you up at GGS are horribly at keeping us curious!

    About the friends thing, ah well. Not exited, the one friend I drew into this game reached lvl 130 today....he has been playing about as long as I do :p

    As for mentors and helping hands on the forums, we appreciate all the work you are doing and some of you have already received a token of appreciation from us (Larino, for instance, was awarded with the community decoration quite a while back).

    I'm glad to that I was thinking wrong about you about this, and I own you an apoligize for my bad thinking.
    - And like you, I feel Larino absolutly have doing a lots of good working to help other players, so I'm very glad that she have get that decoration, she really have deserved it! :) (and in my oppinion you also could have give her some gold)

    Maybe it's time for another round of thank-yous soon. We'll keep it in mind. :)


    Yes, maybe that could be a good idea, also for GGS reputation :)
    Over time I have seen many other players who also have doing a good helpfull job in forum, just sad I can not remember all the best helpers names, but some of them I have not seen in long time, so I'm afraid they maybe have left the game.
    But at least there still is many helpfull players at the forum. :)

    I dont think i'll be using the friends facility, they would never talk to me again. I would much rather have back the 3 high level players that have quit the game lately due to all the problems. Unfortunately I think the three are just the start of players leaving.

    My friends are either in the game or have no interest in playing any game let alone a farming game, and I DO NOT do Facebook at all!!
    I do welcome the County Fair Event but will not be participating in the FRIEND'S Invitation part, not my cup of tea.
    I am still trying to get a grip on the Horse Ranch which was (and is still) complicated enough for me... this Friends invitation stuff is just another brain-consuming task for me!
    All I can say is GOOD LUCK everyone!!! HAPPY FARMING!!

    Wow!! I'm surprised no one is talking about this update. These are some major happenings purportedly coming to our farms today. If all goes as planned, that is. I'm Very Excited about the County Fair activities. Especially the chance to earn the Classic Carousel and Cotton Candy Machine! I think the 'Invite a Friend to Play' bit may need some 'tweaking' but is overall a kind of cool new feature, even though it seems a bit daunting at the moment and 'Bug Fixes' are always a welcome addition to the gaming experience.

    Here's hoping it all comes off without a hitch!!

    Happy Farming Folks!!

    Hey rocnrobn,

    unfortunately we currently don't have a mobile app.

    She could try playing on her phone with a browser supporting flash but usability is not 100% optimal in this case. :S

    We're still fixing an error spotted in the final test. As soon as we're done, we're gonna start the update on smaller servers and work our way up to the big ones.

    We actually planned to start it relatively soon after the update. If, however, the update has to be pushed back even further we will consider starting it tomorrow instead, due to some time zone issues we could run into.

    does that mean things might work correctly from the beginning, and no update amendments throughout the day !

    Don't worry, it's getting a little too late for us to be starting the event right after the update today, hence we will delay the event start a bit.

    To make sure that all time zones will get a chance to participate in day one of the event, it will be started at 07:00am CEST tomorrow (friday).
