    Anyone knows exactly how much time the timer appeared for CC?

    I've caught it at 24:36 minutes , but i was sleeping

    Did it start higher than that?
     Not the exact time but I saw almost 26h. For sure less than 30h (previous time I was online). I noticed that this time the cc is starting 4h later than usual so the notice might have appeared maybe with 28h.

    I liked the events calendar as well. You could at least see a bit what is coming and what is not. Please GGS bring it back!!!

    @mia111 (GB1)

    Thank you very much for info :)

    Yes, the 4 hour later than usual is interesting, I also wonder if this very CC, could be one of the rare 5 days CC!

    That would be more than marvelous :)

    I'm relieved.

    The obligation of keeping the calendar updated (Not Wabbits, but the one I maintained) was getting to be quite the headache with all the schedule changes, events popping up that weren't on the calendar to begin with, etc.

    It was also one of the few things left that was tying me to the game.

    Oh my, I saw only Wabbits calender. Wonders where yours is/was. ?

    While I am writing a new comment I wish to add the question that I edited in my comment 10:39 today. Thinking its not been read. 

    "Or have we misunderstood, tweets will not show on the forum side menue?? If so then why have we not been told/corrected as we wrote comments including forum side menue in our comments?? *shakes head* this is not OK, we need much better communication+info about this all. Somebody knows the answer, please step forward!"

    Southern's calender was on the crazy big farm website.

    I for one will miss it greatly.  It was a job well done.  Thank You Southern.

    Between @WascallyWabbit 's & your calendars, they have always provided a big help even with all the changes & unannounced events thrown into the mix. Having some thing is better than nothing. ;)

     Like your self @Southern (US1) I've been with the game a long time. So yes I do remember when there was no calendar, but there also was not so many events running in a month.
     All the weekly events started on the same day. There's was time in between them. After a while we knew the order they would run.
     The CC was once a month. Giving farmers time to restock, build up & get ready for the next one.
     The temp farms were every other month. Ran the full 30 days! Again farmers had time to stock up before the next one.

    I do hope they rethink not providing some sort of a schedule for the monthly events. With as many events they wish to run in a given month, we do need some thing other than social media & or more in game pop ups to help us keep informed. If they are having troubles just communicating to the Mods/forum about the events. What makes them think they can keep it up on social media ??

     There has been a couple of great idea's suggested.
     Really like the "Event Building" some thing similar to the "Trader Building". Showing all the regular run events, ie: Weekly, Bee/Sick Pig girls, Hunting & group events with start dates & length of them. Allowing special/season events to be a little surprise via in game pop up & social media announcements.

    GGS has obviously shown us all what they think of their customers (players). Any business that blatantly disregards their customers needs, doesn't remain in business long.
    6 years and they are still going :D

    Interesting.  There's only a couple of events I care at all about, but I guess not any longer if I can't plan ahead, lol.

    Todays popup about the CC games came hours after it started - For I was logged up and playing when it popped up - The timer however gave notice - I am not for hela timers all over the screen - its way to hard to see as it is - the sales popup come into dismay for me when I am in a mission and the time is nigh and 60 seconds counts between first place and third place two popups come on telling me I can get a points booster or by gold or get gold cheap - after I click them off screen I cant harvest fast enough to win now I have useless crops in the field of battle - Thanks for that -  However you play Relaxed - gungeho - or maniac gold pusher you need to have a plan when to up lvl things 15 to 30 hours really - you need to know when to step up to be ready for the chaos of the CC games - the tranquil of the Fishing Event - or when you can relax rearrange your farm and build decos or more coops - Just bring back the Calendar it gave us reason and planning - Minute man farming will not cut it even if you get used to it - No it wont -

    Yes but there player base as dropped a lot !!

    Same here, the pop-up annnouncing CC starting soon came several hours after the CC had started. Not a good start for GGS when it comes to announcing events. *big sigh while shaking head* This can not continue! They need to get their act together. Can´t really believe they are happy about this either. But. It was their choice and they have had plenty of time to organize it.

    And where is the announcement at the side menue? Or is that a misunderstanding = never ment to be?

    My notice on Facebook for the CCE came AFTER I had already done my morning missions for the CCE. Wow, thanks for the headsup there, GGS

    I agree, there does not seem to be much forewarning about the event.  The announcement and the start of the event seems to coincide.  It would be nice to have at least 3 days advanced notice, maybe even 4 days.  If we get these event announcement just minutes or seconds before it starts, then these announcement are pretty useless and may even become irritating like it is when a multitude of add pop-ups occur during harvest of missions.  I realize that the mods do their best and may not get the start info until moments before the start of an event.  In this case maybe they could post an apology about not being able to get us the start info in a timely manner prior to the actual start of the event.  o:)

    There was a popup about the CC?
    I never saw one.
    I had that logo thing at the top last night, though.

    Very disapointed that it is canceled. We need time to plan and get ready for events. You really need to re-think this.

    No pop-up, just an announcement that we get when we log on.
