  • yes the calendar was my only reason to visit forum so now I have been set free from it.


    playing this game is like cleaning the stalls in the barn 

    hearts and hands
  • Yes, we all plan our lives to a certain extent - whether we admit it or not.  I know what time I have to be at work. what time I have to leave home to get there on time, and therefore what time to set the alarm clock - even that is a plan.  I get food out of the freezer to defrost time time to cook it - another plan.  I iron our work clothes on a Sunday - another plan.  If we book a table at a restaurant its another plan.  Of course there has to be room for spontaneity and surprise but for most things there is a schedule, calendar or plan.

    GGS know months in advance what should happen when, and for reasons we all think we know they have chosen not to share that information.

    Whether they realise that it is going to affect profits and bring back at least some kind of schedule we call all see is another matter - I hope they do as without the calendar and the ability to plan it removes a lot enthusiasm for events.

    @iron maiden (INT1) Yes my real life is planned down to the minute, ask anyone I have my real life planned down to the minute usually weeks or months in advance, I do allow changes to my plans, with notice, but do not try to make me change a my real life plans at last minute (except if something drastic happens that can't be helped), there is a fight for sure and will not happen.  I am NEVER late for anything and anyone that tries to interfere with that will find themselves in big trouble.  I plan my farm, what I am going to build  (I have a 1 year plan for this at least, it change but the plan is already there for the next year), I plan what events I play ( I like to be able to do this for the entire month, 1 week before month begins).  I plan EVERYTHING in life, some time it changes last minute which can't be helped, but the plan is there.  I don't like random, there is no skill or strategy involved with random.

    This is called OCD and many people have it. Planning to me is critical.  It takes GGS very little time what is going to happen in the next month and actually if you ask them they also probably have plans what is happening for the next year already and like any Business a 5 and 10 year plan, like myself, the plan is there subject to change, so no time lost from other things like bug fixes, takes very little time to inform mods of upcoming events and dates for 1 months of events.

    This removal it effect players who want to be able to compete and do well without using too much gold.  Players that want to use their brains not their pockets.  After all it is suppose to be a strategy game, good strategy takes good planning 
    Sorry brian that you have that illness. But in general in a game things always changes. And like in real life everything is influenced by changes or am i wrong. I can plan that tomorrow in 1 year it will be 36 degrees outside and on that day in 1 year it rains,my world not collaps or my planning is upside down. I don,t get up in the night to harvest my apples because the silo is running for the 26th HWE this year. But there are players who will set the alarmclock for it. When i start dooing that my life will be overtaken by the game. And the game will not anymore be a game for me but a obsession

    And don,t worry,the owners of this game won,t buy a ferrari from my gold pùrchases. I know very well to use my brain and keep it cheap. So i am not a goldthrower who buys his way to the top. But those who do that i have understanding for that. The so called bragging rights. But for me a level 25 player has and gets the same respect as a level 500 player

    But as another wrote we are here to agree or disagreee about the calender.
     i don,t mind it is gone. That is my cup of thea. 
  • This is bull crap.  Seriously we need more pop up.  And no calendar.  WTHeck.  What are you all thinking

    Thank you uksharon (GB1) :) 

    Somehow google translate has stopped working for me. Not being a puter wizard I have no idea how to correct it. Did try to find other translation programs Swedish to English, but the ones I found would only translate single words *grrr* 

    Am grateful for your help!

    @ WiseWing, unfortunately the threads you mention are not easily found. I have only seen one of them and turned away because only Finns wrote there and heh that language could as well been Greek for = impossible for Swedes, Danes, Norwegians to understand. But that is actually the lesser problem for them. Not finding reading+writing English easy (time consumming translating all) is such a put off that gamers stop logging in at the Forum. They feel alienated. Valuable information, thoughts, inputs, communication gets lost.

    Facts of life.

    Try this it helps me in an every day setting - to communicate with my friends around the world just click past the the install screen if you do not want to install it will translate many lines of text.

    @Summer (SKN1) The 2 threads referred to are "stickies" at the top of the main section for Discussions & Questions  There is one for the Dutch server & one for the Nordic server & are for players on those servers to help others, who do not speak English.

    Do not be put off from the Nordic one, it goes through phases of which language uses it the most & which ones have players actively answering questions or posting translations, it is there for all SKN1 players to use, though it does rely on players checking it to see if there is something in their language that they can help with. It has been fairly quiet lately, since the last couple of regular posters left, but if you wish to get the Norwegian players using it more, you are very welcome - posting translations of official announcements & letting players know they are there, usually gets the activity going again.

    We (the mods) check activity on both those threads when we are gathering feedback on a hot topic, so their posts do get included. :)

    Fantastic, thank you! :) From what I can see it translates perfectly. Norwegain anyway. (google translate, eat your heart out ;) )

    When I logged in this morning I get a pop up saying the pleasure park is next. This is one event that does not interest me at all. I figured I could just work on building up resources for a while...

    When I get into the game I also see the village fair which was not in the announcement.

    I don't know weather to be happy there is an event I can get something out of or mad because I had no announcement that it was coming.
  • Please bring back the calendar. It's a great tool for planing ahead. Thank you.
  • shehara (IN1)shehara (IN1) IN1 Posts: 42
    I would prefer having a calendar like before, that way the players can make a conscious pre-planned choice on whether or not to take part in a specific event. The good thing of having many events running concurrent was each player could choose which they prefer and keep out from the rest depending on their individual schedules.
     Thank you for reading..have a nice day <3

    no warning on vf - no popup? what ? Over site or done to rile us? Not cool - Agree about HotFix first then start the event - Also agree about Sub menus reverting back to first page - searching for Decos in a 12 page list get to 6 and then back to start -  I still vote for the calendar - I will take a weeks notice - good point how a about a post on sunday to show the weeks lineup -

    I'm very sorry for changing the subject  ... forgive me but I don't know how to start a new post

    Can someone please define the meaning of  "poaching"  as in a high co-op going into masters  league and one of the players asking a couple of players from another co-op to join them  ... 
    when that particular co-op fights tooth and nails  just to stay in gold  ??

    Its happening on Int1  server .... is it happening on other servers ?

    Yes it happens on all servers I'm sure. It is up to the farmer if they wish to stay with their co op or try to get into a better co op or a more aggressive one. Those that stay will be the ones that want to remain with the group because they are happy there & have made friends with some of the members.

  • DebRN (US1)DebRN (US1) US1 Posts: 694
    I would assume poaching is luring members from another coop.  The big guys recruiting from the moderate coops.  Doing this can upset the balance of the lesser coop and lead to a disbanding, at times.

    well, there is a dead give away that they changed the lineup for events. The pop ups are the ones scheduled for fishing hard worker event. Obviously, they can change willy nilly now. Too bad they cannot change the pop ups too. So, the events are going to be screwed up beyond belief!

    I shouldn´t be astonished anymore, but am.

    When changing something then ofc one (read GGS programmers + admin) must make sure that all pieces are corrected according to eachother. If not possible then to not make the change. 
  • @Xcution (INT1)

    It is an ongoing process.
    In my (please note, personal) opinion, they will most likely take both words and actions into consideration, when making their decisions.

    So not only all the many words that have been written down here, but also the behaviour/response of the players (both those who visit the forum and the many who do not) in the game itself.
